    (<i>Nods head and grunts quietly in agreement.</i>) Cinda, Cinda, Cinda. There is no 12-step program for this condition. All you can do is give in.

    You mean this? <a href="http://mysongbook.de/msb/songs/r_clarke/watwide1.htm">The Water is Wide</a> Look around and you can find TABs by JT, the Indigo Girls, Peter Paul &amp; Mary, and others.

    I can play every one of Keith's furious solos and fills on my steering wheel. And I can do a pretty mean Townshend on air guitar. Entwhistle is the coolest looking chap to ever strap on a bass. Man can those guys rock. The Who and The Moody Bl...(more)

    You're off to a great start, Marty. Fills and arpeggios are a good way to make sure you and the piano aren't just doing the same thing. Keeps things from getting muddy. When we have a song I think needs some good rousing strums, I suggest to th...(more)

    Sounds like a good excuse to get thee to a music store and buy a new guitar.

    Better than sawing the guitar in half. Now <i>that</i> would have been a solution of Solomonic proportions.

    I brought home my new Yamaha Stomp AG acoustic preamp last night. I think I need to take a few days off work and start experimentin'. Back to work now :( ....

    A wild guess: Play an octave below (or above?) what's written.

    I'm no ska guitarist. But we had a piece we did at church a few months ago that we decided to do with a ska feel. At rehearsal I thought I was doing pretty well with it, steadily throwing down solid choked strums at the back end of every beat. ...(more)

    D'addario Phosphor Bronze Lights (.012 - .053). But I'm just an acoustic interloper in this thread.

    Unlikley. I have an unconventional sense of humor. I was only lucky to have "gotten" this one. ;)

    I've often snickered (as in, "They have <i>got</i> to be kidding!) when trying out Gibson acoustics. Sure they're good guitars, but anyone can find comparable guitars for significantly less money. I always figured it was the Gibson name.

    Hmmm. You say you're a heavy metal band and you're playing for a wedding party? Well, are supposed to be playing music for dancing, or just some background music, or both? What kind of music is your boss going to be expecting? How many sets of...(more)

    Chorus is useful with acoustic guitar. I've been using a Boss CE-5 for quite a while and I'm generally pleased. Compression (I have the Boss CS-3) is also a useful effect, but it takes a lot more work to get it right. I use it sparingly. I al...(more)

    Hmmm. "Exhile." That sounds like a sniglet. Maybe it means "the state of being cast out for carrying on with the annoying habbit of breathing through one's mouth." Of course, in the case of the joke's subjects, there's no breathing going on at ...(more)

    She's beautiful, Sandra. Quick question: Is that a million-pound cradle, or some fancy digital camera effect?
