    Thanks, Nick! By the way, that's quite a homesite you have here at WN. Hope others check it out! -Rik.

    Hi! Just a question, if I might. If you use thumb, index, middle and ring fingers that's considered pima: p - pulgar (thumb) i - indicio (index, pointing finger) m - medio (middle finger) a - anular (ring finger) What letter would symbolize ...(more)

    I'm also looking into some lights. We have the same issue--we tend to play at venues which don't own/provide lighting. "Stages" are often improvised. I'm looking for more than just more light--although that's part of it, too. Just a couple o...(more)

    Thanks for sharing that with me, Devon. I play guitar at my church as well, and my wife plays an assortment of wind instruments (flute, recorder, etc.). It sounds like you're making some real progress. I'm glad to hear that! In His peace, -...(more)

    You play the bagpipes? My wife was just learning on a practice chanter. She was surprised how different it is from the tinwhistle (which she plays extremely well). On her chanter she's learned all kinds of ornamentation from a pipe band in th...(more)

    Eric, I'm really sorry. I think part of it is I had a bad day. Maybe I shouldn't post anything when I'm having a bad day. And the funny thing is, I caught my spelling error just as it was too late. I had already sent it! I figured you or so...(more)

    "my education has nothing to do with anything" I would disagree. I don't mean to insult you on account of how much or how little education you may have, yet when you write as though you have all the answers, you write as a self-proclaimed expe...(more)

    Eric, You wrote: "everyone bitches about the president that i know of but if hes so unliked how did he get elected then," You must not know very many people. I know many citizens who support our President of these United States. "im 24...(more)

    Bill, I appreciate your reply. Sounds like it was great. But even if that were back today, I wouldn't have the time to keep up with it all on the computer. But it sounds great, and to have that available would have been awesome. Thanks for s...(more)

    Joe, I like your site. It's great that you are as intentional as you are, and I hope your work continues as well as you hope. Hope full-time music works for you and pays for itself. Keep up the good work! -Rik. The SRV video was cool, too.

    What was WN like in its heyday? I'd be interested in hearing more about it. -Rik.

    Devon, Are you looking to learn more songs for church? Do you play Christian Contemporary, or what style? In the immediate future, what are you looking to learn? More songs for church? Rock / Pop songs, as your homesite indicates is your fo...(more)

    Don't feel bad just 'cause you started late. Just be glad you discovered the guitar for yourself. You can try making up for lost time, but some aspects come with time, and, in my opinion, can't be rushed. But congratulations! Glad the guitar...(more)

    I didn't realize it was so easy to win a Nobel Peace Prize!

    I'm sorry--I guess you meant a Camel cigarette. Filtered or unfiltered? Anyway, I haven't touched a cigarette in years. I wonder how many more years I can go without picking one up again. And camel wasn't my brand , anyway. Peace.

    Peace! Either the resolution on this monitor is lousy, or it looks as though you're suggesting I have a dessert animal with a hump with an apple. I think you meant "carmel." But that does raise a question. Why do people not eat apples with ...(more)

    This is really cool, reading your different stories! When I was young, I remember my mom was looking for something in her closet. She took a number of things out to get at whatever she was looking for, and among the things she removed w...(more)

    Let's be honest here. At what age did you first pick up a guitar? When did you first begin to learn it? What fascinated you about guitar? Did you actually take lessons, learn from a relative/friend, or figure it out on your own? Did you sti...(more)

    Now, where's the documentation? Regarding # 1, what if you have apples & caffeine (coffee)? Does one become more awake, or how do they interact with one another?

    "the sad thing is you lost that time during your prime" It doesn't have to bug you. If one is a caring individual, putting the needs of others before their own, they invested that time, letting others go before them by patiently waiting their ...(more)
