    The same message was passed historically on 50 years ago with the same quandary and contridiction by the then current pop and other music existing at that time. I think even some rag time may have used it and that would go even further back in ...(more)

    Use of dual identity chords sometime confuse others. B7b5 = F7b5 because they have the same pitches but get spelled enharmonically differently. Although the progression might be B7b5 to Bb7b5 to A7b5 or it could be Eb7b5 to D7b5 to Db7b5 or i...(more)

    Sorry, but if you think you have explained something you didn't because despite the numbers you used didnot give any reference as to what the numbers meant.<br /><br /> Was the first number the lowest finger, fret, or string? You may have stuff...(more)

    Once you learn basic scales shape, using the open position, the next step is to use a shapes that a scale takes. Then the process is to move that one scale fingering all over the neck of the guitar. When doing that, learn the name of the scale. ...(more)

    Sometimes mentally thinking through the process of what your going to do shortens the time for actually achieving that goal.<br /><br />Charlie

    Dear Obee,<br /><br />I wrote a long response and then pushed the wrong button. In short one needs to be connected to playing music during the time off from the guitar, plus writing music. The coordination remains there for the guitar, provided ...(more)

    If you do take a break for a long time, keep thinking of what you will do next. Visualize and think sound and where it is located on your instrument. Play the same thing in diffrent octaves.<br /><br />If you have trained your hands correctl...(more)

    When entering the 1st Grade the children are enrolled according to when they were born. Probably 6yrs old. That would make the 5th graders about 10 - 11 yrs old.<br /><br />When my father came to the USA kids had to repeat the grade they were ...(more)

    If your satisfied with the sound, and others think so, then your probably doing very well.<br /><br />Charlie

    There is one problem here. The newspaper has a purpose to sell newspapers. The validity of their survey is in doubt because a lot of the questions presented are asked of 7th graders. When children are passed on to the 5th grade, they are still 4...(more)

    Now slip them into the keys your in, or use for the chord your working with, as the chord or the pattern for melodic usage. It is wide open for the performer that hears the sounds.<br /><br />Charlie

    Higher functions are used in jazz and other forms of music. b9, #9, 11, #11, 13, chromatics used freely and they move into one of the harmonic notes. It could go like this E, Eb, D, C#, B, C or the other direction F, F#, G, A, Ab., or straight...(more)

    My prior post supports your thought on bends. Individual interpretation by the artist or performer is the key.<br /><br />Charlie

    I just posed the question as I did not understand what he wrote. No, I have not seen the video. I still stand by what I wrote. I was not gruff or demeaning. I asked a real question without any if, ands, or buts. No ulterior motives should have ...(more)

    What do you mean by "whole double stops"???? Double stop = two notes played at the same time. Whole might mean a whole note. Explain what you wrote. For me those three words leave a lot of unstated thoughts.<br /><br />Charlie

    Nope. I usually go the opposite direction but it could be up. I treat the bending as if it were four different sounds. * = the pressure for bending. D. D*, D**, D***, D**** and then I play the note E. This is an example of what I might do. Thi...(more)

    It is a googleplex. Time is spent better on something else. Sort of asking how many notes might be contained in a measure, or how many variations of the note G might be used before one gets to G# or Gb, and that doesn't take in consideration of ...(more)

    I saw one of the couples doin" their two step and the others were doing the "boogie" separate movements.. apart and yet together. The main idea for dancers is to have fun and enjoy the body movement. The sound recording on my end was breaking u...(more)
