    Can anyone recommend an acoustic song for one of my students to perform? He has been playing for about 3yrs, it needs to be solo guitar with one vocalist. Thanks.

    After having just looked around guitar.com -in particular the discussion forum- it has made me realise (again) how good thus site is. Every posting I read was just people arguing over childish issues, and "who is cooler.."...it is such a waste. ...(more)

    Does anyone have any tips for creating walking bass lines? All I've heard is: play chord tones on beat 1& 3 and passing notes in between, but this ends up sounding like what it is...an exercise! Thanks Jason.

    Has anyone heard "Another Lifetime" by Simon Phillips? I am curious about the harmony used (very cool)and the origin of the melody lines (also very cool).

    Anyone got any tips on writing jazz tunes without using the ii-V-1? Modal tunes work well this way, but I need some more concepts.... Thanks.

    Chuck, I believe that the soul necessitates self-awareness. When humans developed this ability they also developed the ability to know right from wrong, good from evil etc. As a result humans are now responsible for their actions. That is the ...(more)

    Creationists are people trying to discover God, but in my opinion they are making an issue of something that really is not that important. This is not an excuse to dismiss the Bible. I most definately am not a creationist, but I do accept the Bi...(more)

    Why is there an argument? The creation account never was written as a scientific report. It has only been read like that since The Enlightenment. Genesis was composed as a "why" account of life, science doesn't -and can not- ask this. Scienc...(more)

    Steven, I'm the same, each time I watch the video I get something new. The track 'Emotions wound us so' is the most amazing song I've ever heard. The live video your talking about, its not the one that apparently has just been released in Japan ...(more)

    Mark, Larrys' stuff with the crusaders is cool, though a little hard to find- I was wasn't even born then. I'm really into his early 70's solo stuff & his work with Joni Mitchell. His acoustic album 'Alone but never Alone' is a masterpiece. ...(more)

    Does anyone here dig Larry Carlton? He has to be one of the most gifted musicians around. He has nothing to prove. No pretence, no flashy shallow shredding, just music straight from his soul. I'd like to find some net sites dedicated to him. T...(more)
