    Did you guys notice that every single "blues band" mentioned in this thread is a white blues band (with the exception of Band of Gypsies, which I wouldn't define as a blues band)? I don't know what that means and don't mean to draw any conclusio...(more)

    Not sure exactly what price range you mean by "cheapie", but I have had good experiences with Martin Sigma and the Yamaha FG series. From these guys you can get decent guitars that you can drag around with you in the $200-300 range. I'm actuall...(more)

    Hi Marty, It would be great to use the WholeNote composer to share tabs. However, in order to respect copyrights you should not simply put up tabs to complete songs. There are no exact legal definitions of what you can or can't tab, but I thi...(more)

    I was in Sears today to get some non-guitar-related stuff. I'm walking down the aisle when...BOOM...in my face are racks and racks and racks of metal guitar slides. Made from thick, heavy metal the way they should be. All different sizes -- y...(more)

    What are you guys talking about? That's what I look like normally.

    I generally have problems with movies made from "fantasy" books because they force images into your mind in areas where imagination is important, they essentially take away your ability to imagine what something looks like. If the images don't ...(more)

    I don't <i>use</i> them, but with all the discussions that go on at WN, I got curious about at least listening to them! And I have to admit, I'm getting curious about all of these so-called acoustic effects units (at least, BOSS, DOD and Zoom m...(more)

    BOSS has an <i><b>excellent</b></i> interactive demo of almost all of their stomp boxes (single effects pedals) on their website. I can't provide a direct link, because it's a flash application, but if you go to www.bossus.com and then click on...(more)

    Can I assume that you'll be playing acoustic? Here's some thoughts: - Sonny &amp; Terry are a bit folksy for my taste, although they are really good and belong at the top of anyone's list for harp-based blues duos. They do a great version o...(more)

    Hi Guys, WN is having no problems, don't worry. However, the company that serves our ad banners is having problems and I think this must have something to do with the problems you guys are having. I don't know this for sure, but it's a hunch, a...(more)

    I don't have a lot of my own wisdom on this, but I did witness Chris Sung (founder of WN if you didn't know) checking out a couple of units. He just started jamming with a band again recently after a long layoff and wanted to get a bunch of eff...(more)

    Nice job on the lyrics, Maciek, I especially like the adaptation of Muddy's 19 Years Old to the current circumstances, that's the way the blues evolved! As to the imaginative naming thing, I've heard them all already...

    Hey everybody, Thanks so much for your overwhelming response! Even though I don't spend as much time here as I'd like to these days, it always feels great to come back and see that the WN family is still as supportive as ever! Mia is home now ...(more)

    Hi Sandra, ActiveMusician actually CAN ship tab books, sheet music, videos and software internationally, however we don't ship any musical equipment abroad because we've found that shipping costs and customs are too high. With books and such...(more)

    This is a little unfair cause lots of blues is spoken, but I bet you guys won't get these: 1. "If I'd a kept all the money I already spent, I woulda been a millionaire a long time ago!" 2. "Everything's gonna be all right this morning" (this on...(more)

    I'm gonna take a stab at this since I like this kind of question. First, three warnings... 1) I'm gonna kind of ramble on and on in this message since it would take too long to write a well-organized response, for this I apologize 2) Most of w...(more)

    Just a couple of notes, as Chris has pretty much said it all: - Note when Chris's message was posted, 6AM this morning(!) Yes, that does mean he was up all night working on this on a holiday weekend. Let's all give him a big pat on the back [...(more)
