    Hi Sandra, The adding of the confirmation box to the 'Post this message and my response in FretBuzz' was a 1-minute job, so I just took care of it. For any of you dual WholeNote-ActiveBass members, I also made the same change at AB. Regarding...(more)

    For those in the NYC area, because of today's tragedy, there is a blood shortage, and I urge all who can to donate. You can go to <a href=""></a> for up-to-date donation info. Here's the latest:...(more)

    There are a lot of valid issues and questions raised in this thread so I'll see if I can shed some light on them: First of all, we welcome all comments and suggestions. We don't always respond and for that I apologize, but we do read them all....(more)

    I sincerely apologize to the WN community for some of the recent unsavory activity of several users, and for the fact that nothing has been done about it on our part until now. To recap, some of the more forgettable highlights include:<ol><li>S...(more)

    I think the key phrase in all this is when you say "I've been doing it for 40 years". The problem is that it's only through gaining this sort of experience that you can hear melodies and phrases that use non-chord tones, and be adept at knowing...(more)

    With respect to this particular problem, I sort of view it like learning a spoken language. The notes and scales are like words, and the musical ideas you create with them are the sentences or phrases. The question is: at what point do you sto...(more)

    To ditto what the others have said, the beauty of the metronome isn't so much that it gives you a beat with which to play - it's the fact that the beat is steady. You'd be amazed how much one can learn about strumming, picking, chords, scales, ...(more)

    I should include the epilogue, which is that Mark did in fact say that "all is well", so that's good to know. I'm thinking that at some point, I should put something in the FAQ about WholeNote "burnout". As far as I can tell, this happens for ...(more)

    This would be my fault. There's a few different features that haven't been updated in a while. These include: resources submitted by non-members, submitted artists and manufacturers, and the news. I promise that I will get around to it, but i...(more)

    It used to be that for 80's metal and hard rock, using only down strokes was the way to go. You can definitely hear the difference between using only down strokes and using down and up strokes. Today, I'm not sure if this is still the norm, bu...(more)

    Wow, this is a really interesting question, because I had the chance last week to demo both of them side by side (such are the spoils of running a store that sells both models - hint: Here's what I thought: Both models hav...(more)

    It seems that images hosted at Geocities don't appear on our site anymore, which is unfortunate, so I get the "image not found" icon for your picture. The main thing is that the size of your picture is huge both physically and in filesize (115K...(more)

    Doooh...I knew I should have looked up the article. I was thinking Paul Brown, but then I just assumed I was thinking of the longtime NFL coach and innovator (as well as the namesake of the Cleveland Browns). It's good to hear that ComFest is ...(more)
