    Takamine,Guild, Yamaha and Ibenez all have good Mid range guitars and those are the ones I am familiar with. Take your time and test drive as many as possible and savor the process of looking. I am not in the market right now but I am always loo...(more)

    Has any body seen or tried out this folding acoustic if so what do you think? A good idea? a Cool gimmick? Bad Idea? I hear they sound good but they are expensive.

    A few months ago we lost Jerry Reed and a few weeks ago (Feb2)we lost Buster B Jones. I was bummed to find out about both, I love watching these guys on You Tube. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

    Ijust reread your request and noticed you checked amazon.OOps,I went there and was able to find it.But with limited time Chris's suggestion is probably the way to go. Also I just checked and You tube has it if you don't have a recording of it.Go...(more)

    Hi Chris, I have been thinking about what you said and have tried what you suggested about humming the solo then finding it.But I still end up in what ever key my progrssion is in thus in whatever that scale is for that key.( probably due to the...(more)

    Santana's "Europa" and Gary Moore's "Still got the Blues" two solos that take me somewhere very emotional every time. Partly its the use of sustain and partly the way these guys set up their solo's.But most of all they play with feeling and can...(more)

    Hi Mike< I love the simplicity of the caged system. Its a great way to start getting familiar with inversions in a practical way. I once had this lesson for the song "Funny Valentine" where the lesson was more about how to build chord extensi...(more)

    Here is another fun exercise, If basic open chords are starting to be comfortable then take a great song like "Heavens door" as mentioned and map out a dotted box pattern for your student to fool around with that will go with his tune. He can le...(more)

    My wife thinks I spend too much time with my guitar or Madden as it is. I am just afraid that if I tried it I wouldnt have a life or a wife any more.It looks like fun but it looks awful addicting.-
