    I felt that the music itself was already so cliche(clinking chain sounds, spooky organ, eerie un-decipherable voices, haunting piano, etc....) that ghosts, skeletons, bats and all that stuff were out. My intent was to create something scary vis...(more)

    Thanks. As you could probably guess, I put more into the writing and recording of the song than the video. The video was just an idea I thought of and had to try but my video skills all around need work. The songs that have realtime guitar are...(more)

    As I said in my original post, I'm not that concerned, I just had something to say and I said it. Thanks for all the responses, especially the ones that mentioned getting feedback via messages. I like this kind of expression better as well. I...(more)

    I too have been a victim. My lessons consistently get 5's &amp; 4's but each of my lessons has recieved a 1 in the past several months, just one each. Is there a way to see all the ratings each person here has recieved? Maybe there is one per...(more)

    mp3.com recently started a "premium artist" service where an artist could choose to pay $19.99 US per month to have thier mp3.com page ad-free, and have thier name BIGGER on the charts. Then they removed the "play" button from all non-premium a...(more)

    In case anyone at WholeNote has been following my "Weekly Improv" and is wondering where it went, mp3.com stopped allowing me to upload a new track each week so I have moved it to a similar site: http://www.ampcast.com/sologuitar I still ha...(more)

    I have been overtaken with the urge to improvise to the point where I have decided to record some of these sessions and post them online. Solo guitar improv, first take only, warts and all. I think this will teach me a lot of things about my t...(more)
