    There are still fees collected for copyright usage. The difference is that the place where the performance is held pays the fees to one of the organizations like BMI. There is no free lunch,<br /><br />Charlie

    I knew George Johnson while he was actually writing Oceans Eleven. That was in the 50's. He didn't get much pay, but he did get his name up in bold print. That's called "scratching my back and I'll scrach yours". My father called that "Playing b...(more)

    Reference I would think might be something like a road map.. pointing the way or location.<br /><br />Influence might be the mode, chord progression, or sounds the performer uses. Dizzy Gillesby, the Monk, Les Paul, all were influences.<br /><br...(more)

    Arrangements of Existing Public Domain Music. Most of the piano arrangements of Beethoven have copyrights, however you can create a new version quite simple. If you change one fingering in the piano, or other compositions editions, you have a ne...(more)

    Copyrights cover an author, or composers, work for roughly his life time. It is the copyright holders choice to allow others to use same free. After that it becomes public domain .. a freebee. If you write a book, it was your work and you are en...(more)

    I will have to agree with you on your post. I bought a Gibson in the 50's. Much later I put a Gretsch bridge on the guitar. It just happened to fit and work nicely. No Luther was really needed on this one. I did have it re fretted by a Luther....(more)

    Fine tuning = being on pitch = harmonics 12th fret equal the stopped (fretted) note made at the 12th fret. When they are the same pitch, they are in tune. No difference with the sound wave occurs between the two. Each bridge has a screw for rais...(more)

    Not with tremelo. Fine tuning bi directional is another matter. Don't expect both. I have two electrics each with a bi directional bridge for fine tuning. I had to purchase separate bridges for each. I also had a Luther adjust each bridge that ...(more)

    In an orchestra open or closed voicings are used with out specific thoughts about what voicing is being used. From my perspective, the guitar is closer to a mini orchestra. Open voicing will some times make the sound larger when coming from a...(more)
