    It sounds quite likely that you may have the "live" (tip) and "ground" (sleeve) connections to the output jack reversed. It is a common misconception that a reduction of hum when the strings etc. are touched, is due to the guitar being "grounde...(more)

    These players would probably display the same lack of melody at whatever speed, in other words, musicality is independent of speed. On the other hand, it becomes more difficult to discern (even good) melody played at high speed, so our ears may ...(more)

    Ok, solutions to the first two questions have been found rather too readily; I'm going to shortcut the next question by answering it directly myself! Q. What chord (shape) formed on the guitar fretboard allows for the creation of (at least)   ...(more)

    Ok Bob, well done! It is the form of these latter two chords which I was hoping someone would find (eventually); your experience shines through once again! I call these <a href="/cgi-bin/;p=1">Transposable Chords</a> (my...(more)

    The m7b5 chord is actually a known as a <i>half-diminished</i>, since it consists of a diminished triad of minor 3rd (b3) and diminished 5th (b5) plus a minor seventh (b7), as opposed to the diminished 7th (bb7) of a true diminished 7th chord. ...(more)

    Hey Chris! Very many thanks for this. That's my reading sorted for the next few weeks! Makes the theories of a certain person whose name <i>shall not be mentioned</i> in this thread look like the kindergarten childsplay that they were. My favou...(more)

    cho|0|6|0|5|0|6|Aaarrggh!|cho<br clear="all" />Not strictly speaking a chord, but what dear Charlie would have referred to as a "note cluster".

    Thanks Adriano, an excellent start, in my opinion. Could anyone now give other examples, and perhaps then generalize to define a rule which would apply to many other chord types?

    Wow, that's great work Nick - absolutely no apology required at all! Admittedly though not what I originally had in mind, I had never assumed or stated that there would be a single correct answer, nor did I specify the number of notes in the or...(more)

    Q. What chord(s)/shape(s) formed on the guitar fretboard can be moved between a       lower and higher set of strings, whilst maintaining (exactly) the same chord <i>type</i>? For example, this is <i>NOT</i> one of them, as the type changes fr...(more)
