    If I understand the question, you can just give a different name for each target, i.e. for link 1: "&lta target=window1 " for link 2: "&lta target=window2 " for link 3: "&lta target=window3 " and so on. It really doesn't matter wh...(more)

    To go along in a similar vein to what Stone said, I view this scale to simply be a mode of either the major pentatonic or minor pentatonic scale. Look at the following: G Pentatonic "Neutral" G - A - C - D - F F Pentatonic Major F - G - A - ...(more)

    As many have pointed out, if it works, then run with it. I think that what you'll find eventually is that, in the future, if this fingering causes you to be at a disadvantage in certain situations, by that time, you'll be adept enough to change...(more)

    I was once at a music festival in Columbus in the summer of 1988. I believe it was called the ComFest, and the thing I remember most is this band called "The Squids". They had this great funk bass player with moster slap technique, but the rea...(more)

    Just make sure that you <b>do</b> get out and enjoy the weather. The Composer will always be waiting for you when you get back, and the weather might not as be as nice tomorrow... ;-)

    The most common causes for a decrease in points are: 1) You submitted a resource that already existed. 2) You posted in some FretBuzz threads that ultimately got removed...

    Ahhh...I didn't realize there was an entrance fee. I will say this: the SIBL is a non-profit organization utilizing musicians to help in the fight for adult literacy in the US, so if that would ever be worth a donation, then think of it as such...(more)

    Jason, If you take a look at the breakdown of your point total (just click on the number next to your name), you'll find that you have a few less submitted resources. This is because some of the resources you submitted (particularly recordings...(more)

    This was just sent to me from a non-profit who've organized a songwriting competition: <hr size="1" width="75%" /> There's a great movement afoot - it connects musicians to the cause of adult literacy. The SIBL Project focuses on the precious r...(more)

    Geez, seven months and you've already gigged twice...? That's incredible. I think that when I had played for seven months, I was still thinking that I would only ever be able to play songs without a D chord in them because I was having such a ...(more)

    All good advice here. You might also be interested in the site FAQ, which has a popup tutorial about how to do this. It's more about homepage pictures, but it applies to lessons, forum messages, and the like, as well: <a href="/help/faq.asp#h...(more)

    You are a very compassionate soul, Rich, but unfortunately, there would be a host of legal complications if we made the contest available to non-US participants, and this is not something we have the resources to tackle at this point...

    There has been some dissension among lesson authors about the updating of lessons, so I thought I would clarify some things.<br /><br />When you publish a lesson, it appears in the list of "New and Updated Lessons" that exists on the main "Lesso...(more)

    Well, I'm not sure about the ambiguous explanation, but the whole tone scale is created when you play a note, move up two frets, play a note, move up two frets, etc, etc. The interval between each note in the scale is always a whole step (i.e. ...(more)

    Yup, that's a good reason to put a nice example in the first page of a lesson. The icon plays back the example from the 1st page of the lesson, so if your first page is text only, you don't hear anything...

    I concur with all the others. The more takes you have on a concept, the better. It's even part of the site's credo, attributed to Sean (and I quote): <i>...Even if you only know one lick or wrote one chord progression in your life, you can pu...(more)

    I apologize. I've been very backlogged with other stuff and haven't had a chance to update the MP3 section. Also, we won't accept an MP3 unless it's from a member, and unless it has all the information we request on the submission. So, for yo...(more)

    Yes, Tommy seems very wise, and in addition, I have to say that his Banjo Fingerpicking Rolls lesson just slays me.

    Very good idea (as usual). I'll put it on the task list.
