    If I understand you correctly, yes... IF you have a "Imaj7"- lets say "FMaj7", you could almost definitely extend the chord into an Fmaj79 or F6 or F6/9 or f Maj13, or possibly sub an "Am7" for it (depending on the function of the original chor...(more)

    Yeah, guys do that all the time... depending on the (nature of the) substitution and who you're playing with, it can be a good or bad thing. There are a few pretty "benign" subs you could make- the tritone sub, or subbing iii instead of I in a ...(more)

    I'm 89% sure they are different... which one do you need a pickguard for? I just might have a 175 pickguard laying around... JC

    Is it a 1/4 inch input for the footswitch? If so I would plug in a generic footswitch to see if that worked first of all... you can try plugging in standard gutiar cable and shorting the ends to see if the channel changes... JC

    Well, if you're into jazz/ jazzy improv, you can apply tetrachords to a variety of different chord types...<br /> Take for example F, G, A, Bb (the first part of an f Major scale) you can lay that on top of F Major seven F dominant seven G mi...(more)

    Hmmm- I remember hearing about foods that were promised to be the "wave of the future"- ostrich eggs, emu and buffalo meet, the crossberd buffalo/ cow (beefalo) and other strange things way back in 3rd or 4th grade... which was almost 25 years a...(more)

    Buffalo are not domesticated, and tend to be bigger, stronger, and harder to control. I think someone cross bred them, but it never really caught on- I think the meat was tough and a bit "off" for most people... JC

    (not really a reply to the above post, just tacking on my 2 cents): Remember that playing guitar requires that certain muscles be built up, flexibility improved and coordination increased- these things just take a bit of consistent effort and t...(more)

    It depends on the quality of the pickups and pots. And if you put the best pickups in a crappy gutiar, you are still gonna have a crappy guitar. Lately, I've seen a lot of cheap guitars with fret issues- rough on the sides, high frets- I'm thi...(more)

    There just seem to be less female guitarists period. Emily REmler was a great jazz guitarist, as was (is) Carol kaye. Mimi Fox and Leni Stern are also very good. JC

    I use George L's on my pedal board- you can custom make them to whatever size you need for a neater look. The cable itself is pretty cheap, the ends (plugs) cost a few, but there is no soldering to worry about. I use monster cable from gutiar ...(more)

    There may also may be a minimum price that they are allowed to post- if so, this gives a brick &amp; mortar stores an advantage and chance to beat the price- of course, they won;t make any money on it... JC

    Good luck- working with kids can be really rewarding, or very frustrating. Be sure to keep their focus and attention- even 15 minutes can be too long for some kids (especially boys at that age). Try to find 3-4 different ways to explain thin...(more)

    I've met a lot of young white kids blacker then me. It cracks me up. I have no idea of what that really says about society, but I'm thinking it indicates "something rotten in Denmark"... JC

    Chris, LOL- I think I have been kind of cranky lately. Maybe I am just getting old. I am a pretty good reader- mostly because I had band starting in 4th grade, and I read music every day through grad school. I alsop starting playing guitar in...(more)

    Unless you are going to play bass, don't sweat the bass clef yet. <b><big>Do not write the letters in and then play it!!</big></b> <small>If you do, you aer practicing reading letters, which is no good. <br /><br /> Read all of the notes out l...(more)

    Learn to read music. Tab is swell, but readking music opens up a lot more doors. I would start in open position- learn the notes (use a Mel Bay book or something), and then buy sheet music you would like to learn (especially piano music or an or...(more)

    yeah, that's the sort of problem you run into when you are self-taught. You can pick up bad and bizarre habits because no one ever told you and you never noticed everyone else doing it. <br /><br />But that should make your life much easier. ...(more)
