    Yes! I keep trying to set the souls free when I realize they're trapped inside a guitar, but guitar shops are starting to lock the doors when they see me coming...

    Stuart is an amazing musician. Kenny Vaughan is a monster, too. I'll bet that was a good show!

    Tracy, thanks for posting this. It's sad news but Craig was a good guy and his life and contributions here deserve to be celebrated and remembered by us. I hope he's finally found peace… R.I.P. Craig

    That's too bad. I seem to recall your lessons were always good. Which one is the complaint about? I guess you also have to keep in mind that there are lots of trolls about who thrive on getting a reaction out of others. Learning who to ignore a...(more)

    You can buy or make your own compensated saddle for acoustic. You'd have to set the height and make sure the length is correct for the saddle slot, along with the width. There may also need to be nut and neck adjustments made in order to set the...(more)

    Yeah, those first 4 are amazing. I still use licks I copped from Mister Joe F'n Perry. Always found it to be very Page-y. But the real gems are the Whitford licks IMHO.

    Good to hear someone else say they liked DWM. I saw them several times after that disc came out and then again on the Permanent Vacation tour. The songwriting may not have been quite as good as the first four records but the band's live shows we...(more)

    Saw this news item: Hmmm… New content on the website. Anybody else seen this? The whole tune is up on YouTube. Looks like they played it live on American Idol. I...(more)

    Ken, if you have Comcast cable there are video lessons available on there for free. I can't tell you if they're any good or not, though. Are you learning cross harp or straight harp - or both?

    Hi Randy, Good to see you're still here! Wow, some big change in the site. I'm surprised it hasn't help stir up some more of the oldtimers. You still in Cali? Still giggin'?

    Wow, I heard it was true, but I had to see it for myself - Wholenote got a makeover! Looks nice! How are all of you? Long time no see (or post, I suppose). Maybe I'll try to drop back in again, sometime. Looks like some of you regulars are stil...(more)

    Did anyone go to the festival this past weekend. I wonder if they even had it - according to the news there was bad weather in the Chicago area over the weekend. Peace, Alan
