    Before you play the guitar thoroughly stretch out your hands, wrists, arms, back - it's all connected! If you can do a stretching routine every day you should notice a difference. Also, massage the palms of your hands. To do this properly you ha...(more)

    What notes are in a C9 chord? How are they derived? I ask because, someone asked me this and I was a little confused due to the lack of info in the chord name. Thanks.

    Does any one have any easy to understand instructions for a beginner on replacing pickups? I've tried searching the Internet and found nothing easy to understand. I've never messed with electronics before, so diagrams are a little foreign. Than...(more)

    Not sure about on-line. I've tried going through all the on-line shops and not found them to be all that cheap. Perhaps the cheapest uk shop to purchase guitars from is Peter Cooks Guitar World. You can find an ad in every guitarist magazine. B...(more)

    Would you ever play, say for instance, A Aeolian over an A Major scale? Or would you stick to playing minor modes over minor chord progressions etc..? Thanks. Andrew

    Hi there! I find that my most tasteful playing occurs when I am relaxed and in touch with my emotions. If I'm stressed or anxious it is very difficult to come up with something worth while. There is some good information on this sort of thing ...(more)
