    I'll be 42 next month, and I'm a salesman. I was SUPPOSED to be a rock star when I grew up, but someone forgot to tell the buying public. I had to make due with my own little personal successes, on a much smaller scale than I had envisioned fo...(more)

    Does anyone know of any sites like Wholenote designed for piano/keyboards? I'm particularly looking for sites that have blues-related info: riffs, licks, runs, scales and progressions for piano or keyboard. Speak up, friends, I'm having trouble ...(more)
