    I'm with you on this, Adriano. I've long been a fan of Tony Joe. Sadly it's really hard to get hold of his stuff in the UK. I particularly like his early stuff - he can really use a wah! As you say "the whole package" - great voice, unique guita...(more)

    Hi Jon, Quite right! Sometimes I can't see the wood for the trees. Too much gin... All the best, Nick.

    Hi Dan, He was posting an awful lot - but then he and all his devilish works vanished! Common sense now prevails. All the best, Nick.

    Hi Chris, Once again there are probably several very learned explanations for this - and Jon Riley is a leading authority on theory, so he can probably do it better - but I'll give you my take on it. What we're looking at is tension and releas...(more)

    Hi Dominic, I'm a big believer in heavy gauge strings! I used to use 12's and even 13's on a Strat - old age and arthritis have forced me to drop to 11's! Heavier strings give you a much improved tone, much more stable tuning and last much lon...(more)

    Well, I'll try! Let's take Bm7b5 (or half-dim) as our example. If we harmonize the scale of C major we get the chords Cmaj7, Dm7, Em7, Fmaj7, G7, Am7 and Bm7b5. All that is meant by "diatonic to the parent scale" is that the notes required to ...(more)

    Hi Chris, A m7b5 chord is a half-diminished chord in that, as you correctly state a dim7 chord contains a bb7. The half-diminished chord is diatonic to its parent scale whereas a diminished chord is derived from the "artificial" diminished scal...(more)

    Sorry Rick - I think I misinterpreted your question! I had my mad, bad, jazz head on. I was thinking in terms of, for as a simple example: cho|x|x|0|2|3|2|D|cho becoming; cho|x|x|1|2|3|2|B7#9|cho or; cho|x|x|0|2|3|1|G9|cho or; ...(more)

    Hi Rick, I don't have a guitar at hand but I'm thinking that if you take into account alterations, extensions, inversions, omitted notes, etc., then pretty much all of 'em! Looking forward to hearing just how wrong I am! All the best, Nick.

    Hi Jim, That's really nice! Beautifully played (it's devilishly complex) and recorded. Don't know too much about Tommy Emmanuel apart from "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". I'll have to check him out. Thanks for posting. All the best, Nick.

    Hi Bob! Yup. It's a blues and it's insane! I needed to lie down after just listening to it! Very nice. All the best, Nick.

    Hi, Bald Kiwi Jackson! Lawdy, lawdy!!! Sho' nuff! Nice lyrics. Did you ever get to sing them? Dam' difficult to rhyme "low-down, dirty angst" with "crocodile shoes"... All the best, Myopic Pomegranate Eisenhower.

    Thought I'd check my mail, Needed me some light relief, Knew I couldn't fail. Logged me on to the Wholenote site, Oh, for @*$!'s sake! A whole mess of surreal posts, All from Andy Fake! I've got the blues..." Second verse anyone? Bearing in mi...(more)

    Hi Brett, Do pass on my best wishes to Warren. I hope he is soon feeling back on top of things. All the best, Nick.

    Can I hang out with the grown-ups too? Aw, go on, please! Seriously, I'm a little concerned that newcomers will be quickly put off by the incessant trolling. I seem to remember that last time it happened a lot of serious contributors abandoned ...(more)

    Hi Lisa, I'm in a similar position. I'm battling away with Cubase at the moment and it's harder to work that out than it was to learn to play the guitar! However, I have found a really useful site at: <a href="

    That's really nice, Jim! Beautifully played - nice to hear some tasteful restraint - and a great sound. All the best, Nick.
