    Speaking of Chinese Ive always wonder if your Nick has anything to do with the Chinese Zodiac. Before I started my profile that I use on this (my name) I was going to use my Nick WaterSnake but then I saw yours and decided to stay with my name.

    Maciek look at my second example... it's the same note just on 5 strings... it also happens to be the Guitars middle C. So that means that there are 5 middle C's on the guitar. So yes I am positive that the guitar has 5 middle C's, you just poin...(more)

    Umm not sure what your asking but all music written on a staff is played an octive higher on the guitar. Why? Because the guitars middle C is an octive higher then a piano, so if we were to write it as it is it 75% of the score wouldnt even be ...(more)

    Holy shiat dude! I started a post like this once but I stopped and deleted the post when I got to the Jazz chords like C Sus7 = BbMaj7/C... theres so many possibilities. If I get a free hour or two (hehe) Ill see what I can add to it.

    This is my personal method, I have other ways of doing them but this what I do to get a Pinch Harmonic 100% of them time. You need at least a heavy pick but the thicker the better. Get the pick between you fingers so just little bit of the tip...(more)

    I think Doug would win even if I were right. My theoretical definition is sound and is used by Pianist, Choir, and Jazz quartets just to name a few but the composer does not have to worry about what voicings are possible on their instrument. D...(more)

    Well yes and no... I know this is confusing. Theoretically no isnt because B (the tenor) is within and octave of G (The Soprano) But just like Doug said These are just technical definitions though... the basic idea is the relative closeness of...(more)

    I agree with you, thats why I keep away from those discussions (Not to mention my views are radical). But I also understand why they talk about the other things on this message board. I have not in my entire life come across a group as well rou...(more)

    One thing that I have always seen associated with perfect pitch is age, and it has been proven that in our youth we are capable of learning things far quicker then as adults. So its quite possible that in our youth we have the ability to achieve...(more)

    Now that's something I can agree with, is it worth the time to develop perfect pitch (I dont think so ether)? I agree relative pitch to me is much more important.

    I couldn't totally disagree more with you Charles. If you believe that you cannot get perfect pitch how can that be achieved even if it were possible, bad attitude results in bad results.
