    Wow, Ant, I knew all these Zep songs were covers, but I had no idea that Zep never gave credit for so many of them. The fact the Nobody's Fault but Mine is not credited was unknown to me -- that's an intellectual property crime of Napster-like ...(more)

    I agree with you Jerry, personally I think Clapton plays some nice blues guitar but his singing just doesn't cut it. Sometimes I feel like he doesn't understand the lyrics that he's singing. Listen to his versions of Before You Accuse Me (a ve...(more)

    Now you're talkin'! Personally, I'd take Kokomo Arnold as my slide role model any day...

    Just thought I'd share this with you guys -- I just got an Intellitouch Tuner, and I think it totally rocks (for acoustic guitar). You attach it to your guitar and it tells you if you're in tune by feeling the vibrations of your strings -- no n...(more)

    You can call me a blues snob (yes, I admit it!), but I'm always surprised by how many people claim to be "blues heads" but their knowledge of blues stops at SRV, Clapton and Robert Johnson, maybe a little Muddy Waters. How about a little Charli...(more)

    1. You don't need special strings 2. Your guitar & strings should be OK in open E 3. If you're worried about it, do as was suggested -- tune down to open D and capo the 2nd fret

    I've flown numerous times with an acoustic, including many transatlantic flights. I have <i>never</i> checked my guitar. I'd rather have it in my control than in the hands of someone who doesn't care. I always carry it in a padded gig bag &am...(more)

    3 words -- Blind Willie Johnson (and don't forget Robert Johnson, either, most of his best songs were slide)

    Let's try this again since I screwed up my HTML last time. Go to <a href="http://www.martinguitar.com">Martin's Website</a> and find their customer service e-mail address, they should be able to answer this for you. How old is your guitar?

    <b>Welcome Back!</b> I bet it feels odd coming back here and you don't know anyone and they don't know you. Great to see you again, it's been a long time. It's kind of odd to see how much turnover there's been at WN since the early days. But ...(more)

    <b>DON'T SCREW WITH THE TRUSS ROD IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING.</b> I had this fret buzz problem last year with my Taylor. The reason? The wood is affected by dryness in a heated environment. Winter is much worse for your guitar than ...(more)

    No way to mass delete or cut &amp; paste, unfortunately. The only help I can give is, to insert and delete notes it's quicker to hold down the Ctrl key &amp; click the mouse, rather than double-clicking. I know that's not much, but it does mak...(more)

    I kinda expected D'Addario to be up there because I think they're the only brand that's popular with both acoustic and electric players. If you were to divide their # of votes in half, then they're about even with everyone else. I generally ...(more)

    Since nobody has answered your question yet, here's the simple answer: ActiveBass is WholeNote's sister site, run by the same people (our bass-playing friend Chris Tarry manages the content there). We don't yet have sites for other instruments...(more)

    The generally acknowledged bible of Chicago blues history is "Deep Blues," by Robert Palmer (not the singer). It goes into a lot of detail on the individuals who formed the Mississippi Delta blues and subsequently the Chicago blues. It goes int...(more)

    If you click on "Lessons" from the top navigation bar, then on the left navigation bar you will see "Top 10 Lessons" 4th from the top. If you click on that, you will actually see 3 lists of "Top 10 Lessons".
