    There are lots of ways to approach this tune (and playing in general). <br /><br /> Lately I've been thinking about pentatonic scales and small alterations. For example- <br /><br /> the Fm7 chord goes nicely with f minor pentatonic. C minor pen...(more)

    I've used a "one spot" on and off as my pedal collection waxed and waned. I liked it a lot, but it may have been the reason my Line6 Modulation modeler quit working. (I don't know for sure, but this was 3 or so years ago.)I've had as many as 10 ...(more)

    <big><b>Congrats!</b></big><br /><br /> I've long forgotten how many points I had- back in the "olden days" (around 2000 or so, I guess), I was like 2nd or 3rd behind Christopher Sung and Frederick Burton- I've fallen out of the top long ago tho...(more)

    the jazz selection is kind of hit and miss- my perception is that there are basically 2 kinds of users on LaLa- some just trade off CD's they no longer have interest in, and some "collect" music by trading and ripping tracks to their hard drives...(more)

    LaLa.com is a site where you can trade your CD's with other members... You list CD's you have that you are willing to trade, and CD's you would like to have. They match their members up as best as they can, so you send and receive the appropria...(more)

    honestly, its been so long, I don't remember. All of those lessons and things are 5-7 years old now. I think I just plugged them in when I did the grooves...

    Hi Kim, teaching young kids is a challenge- its often a balancing act. Most kids that age have several problems right off the bat- lack of strength and coordination are the biggest. Luckily, they have the capacity to learn quickly, and if you c...(more)

    First, let me say that I have always that Wholenote was a great thing for guitar players. It has providede a sense of community for thousands of musicians. A library of knowledge has been shared here in lessons, articles and message board mess...(more)

    I don't think scales when I play, just like I don't think 'left foot, right foot' when I walk, or 'up-stroke down-stroke' when I pick. It's all internalized. I may play scales or scale fragments at some point or another, but it has pretty much...(more)

    Hi all, I have updated my personal website... please take a look and tell me what you think. I made a lot of changes to layout and design- I didn't know at all waht I was doing when I started, but now I have learned a few new tricks. IF anyone...(more)

    Yeah, you have to learn alternate picking in order to economy pick. I used to some exercises designed to be tricky for alternate picking- that time would perhaps have been better spent working economy picking. JC

    I don't mean to imply that alternate picking work isn't needed, it is indeed a part of economy picking. <br /><br /> It's just that I spent soo much time using strict alternate picking when economy picking would have been a better way to go. ...(more)

    I worked a long time on alternate picking specifically before I got into economy and sweep picking- and I kinda wish that I had doen those first so they would feel more automatic and natural. <br /><i> I know that wasn't your question, sorry.</i...(more)

    Yeah, that's why I prefer payment in advance... the place I work 'encourages' a registration fee and the monthly tuition via credit card before the first lesson... But it still happens from time to time. If I get a student that is already play...(more)
