    Many times I put my foot in mouth and wish I could erase any inconsideration that I may have made to those I care for.I have many short falls in these areas. Love to all. For me I have to learn to put them always first.<br /><br />Please God gid...(more)

    I never used the chat room because there were no directions in how to use same. All I could do was to click on here or there leaving a mystery as to what and how.<br /><br />Charlie

    Dear Corey,<br /><br />When practicing isolate each hand. Work and control. Many is the time when I find students complain about the left hand being the problem, yet via analysis it is the right hand, or could be the other way around. A person t...(more)

    No one plays perfect all of the time. Besides everything that was mentioned, be your self. Think sound. Sing the sounds you play at the same moment as if you were one instrument. Perhaps.. maybe more like two strings in unison that come from you...(more)

    I like precision when dealing with being in tune. Tune by ear is ok. I also have a bridge that is bi direcional for each individual string. We have a piano in church that is on pitch. I adjust for the minute differences Sat night late with my Bo...(more)

    Flying inside the envelope still exists. Those who ignore will buy the farm sooner or later... even today. I don't quite know how that would apply here. However, doctors and lawyers as a group, used to have the greatest number of fatalities in ...(more)

    How many of any item are each of us able to use at the same time?.. Generally the number is "one". Have more than one, or flount what you have and you become a target to be relieved of what you have. I happen to like reliability in many things.....(more)

    Dear Brandon,<br /><br />Use the fingerings that your hand can make. My fingers are short but training your hand will make use of what you have. Besides, it only takes 3 notes to make the chords.. root, 3rd, and 5th. Any more is just doubling. O...(more)

    Dear Marie,<br /><br />Perhaps vent some steam at the unwanted advertisers.<br /><br />I get PO'd at the ads. One day I did something about it. I called the company and told them I was going to tie up their phone line. I called them back and p...(more)

    Humidity and Temperature tilt the comfort zone for most of us. Our temperature in California stays mild for the most part.<br /><br />I've been to most of the other states. Phoenix gets hot but is a dry heat. At times we do have the clouds bound...(more)

    The lessons that were removed from general viewing, are still there in the authors list of lessons. They have just been depublished. If you re publish there will be a warning message flashed to you.<br /><br />Charlie

    Dear Carla,<br /><br />Partly true. The ex smoker took a lot of effort to get cleaner lungs. Living longer may be a blessing. Around hospitals the distance out here amounts to about 50 feet from the entrance. <br /><br />Places that cater to the...(more)
