    To the best of my knowledge, the magazine was a "one off" and will not be published on a regular basis without ample demand for such a specialized publication.....perhaps we should write or call en masse and provide ample demand.... JC

    I seem to recall an interview with a famous jazz guitar player who said something like "I was using a compressor to take all the dynamics out of my notes and a volume pedal to put them back in"...or maybe that is a blatant misquote, but the prem...(more)

    I am now feeling Mark's pain...my favorite lessons are getting ripped to shreds. Please y'all, let me know why it is that you don't like what you see....I am so sensitive, you know. cho|5|0|4|0|6|0|anguish|cho |cr|

    To appropriate a quote, "It's been a long time since I rock and rolled..." I forget sometimes that not everyone has degrees in music... I think this online community is great because of all the different viewpoints and ability levels. If someth...(more)

    One of my students picked up 2 amps from an old lady at a yard sale this past week. For a total of $200, he got a 100 Fender keyboard amp and a early 70's Fender Twin Reverb. some guys have all the luck....

    Let me begin by saying that this is an awesome conversation/exchange we are having, and I am glad to discuss this kind of thing with someone as thoughtful, educated, and intelligent as you have proven to be. I agree with a lot of what you are s...(more)

    Technic is often used as an excuse to say a whole lot of nothing really fast.....I suppose my ideal of "perfect technique" would be coordination and skills so great you don't even notice or consider how difficult it must be to play some particul...(more)

    I've also noticed that sudden 100-0 mph deceleration....I now practice acoustically (on my gigging guitar, which is a hollowbody) almost exclusively, that way when I add volume and reverb and chorus or whatever, it is a pleasant suprise, and I a...(more)

    Chords do not need a 5th (uinless the 5th is altered as in a minor7/b5 chord)....and usually you can a more interesting sounding extension if you omit the 5th.

    I am going to speculate based on half-remembered music theory/history classes.....I wouldn't classify the following ramblings as an "answer" but hopefully this will be food for thought if nothing else. I know that people were singing and probob...(more)

    first, let me say that I welcome all discussion (and am glad to have a good natured talk) I can play voicings for 9(#11) chords 2 ways-mostly because I have fat fingers.... C9(#11)= 5th string third fret, with 2nd finger, 4th string 2nd fret, ...(more)

    OK, this message board seemed kind of quiet, so maybe this will incite a miniture theory revolution. Here's an example of non-analytical theroy mongering.....I do believe that the chord referenced in the newer lessons is not F#7b5 but rather F...(more)

    I got a Heritage 575 a few months ago...a blonde beauty...it's like a 175 but at a fraction of the price...I string it with 12's and play jazz and blues on it. There's nothing like going to a blues jam and having a sound waaaaay bigger (not lou...(more)
