  4. Danny Boy has been performed by many great female artists like Mahalia Jackson, Johan Baez, Judy Garland and Sinead O'Connor, but it is the version of Eva Cassidy, accompanied by acoustic guitar, that is my favorite. The arrangement I learned over the past weeks is from Steve's L&M Fingerstyle course session 4. Thanks for listening, Wim.

  6. Congrats Dave!! Enjoy! Hope you are feeling better Greg! Stay safe!
  7. Sounds like you are doing well! As Simira said above, stay on session 3 and just keep practicing the chords. Add a few minutes to the beginning and / or end of your practice and just practice switching between them. Start our very slowly, taking careful note of how your fingers move between the chords. Then bring up the speed slowly. First do it right, then do it faster. Have fun learning with us!
  8. Doug, thanks for the reply. Yeh, I was wondering about his soldering technique. Thanks for the diagram and the link to the pots. Much appreciated!

  10. Congrats Dave on your retierment! Well deserved, I'm sure. Another stage of life begins. Stay Well. N
  11. That was a really rough way to finish such an awesome lesson... Content wise, this is one of those to watch again and again. I hope you're ok now, Steve. You should consider having something to drink and hydrate your throat during the lessons. Thank you so much for all the great content and knowledge you share with all of us, many times at the expense of your own well-being. Please, take care and stay safe! Looking forward to the next live lesson, while I keep preparing something to share with the Guitar Gathering community.
  12. I played with the Orange Crush Mini for 1 hour a day over the last few weeks. The single 9v battery lasted almost 3 weeks before I noticed the built-in tuner would not recognize my low E string. Then the volume started to drop off noticeably. I plugged the amp in for the first time and the volume came roaring back. I played with several effects pedals, and the little Orange was better than expected. The small speaker breaks up easily when you play hard, but playing with a lighter touch cleans it up nicely. Of course the amp also has a mean distorted sound. I definitely plan to add a speaker cabinet in the future.

  14. Yesterday
  15. I have been working on and off from home for the past two weeks. Typically, I have been spending about a half day in the office and then the rest of the day fending off emails and participating in conference calls or Zoom meetings. I have had a bit more focused time to practice and play, but not enough. However, tomorrow that will change. April 1 is my first day of retirement πŸ™‚ Picked a great time to start tapping into those retirement accounts. 😐 So I have a plan, a course to work through, and lots of (well enough) guitars and other miscellaneous equipment. We will see how it goes. I'll keep you posted.
  16. Ankylosing Spondylosis is vastly more serious than sciatica. Glad you are recovering TJmyers Didn’t mean to hijack this thread. Let’s hear some more positive stories about all our free guitar time Greg
  17. Back in late October I had a flare that my doctor diagnosed as Ankylosing Spondylitis, a type of rheumatoid arthritis that attacks the spine and peripheral joints. I could not get out of bed for a month. My left wrist was so swollen and painful I was unable to play at all. Slowly, with medication, the swelling is coming down and there is less pain. I am finally able to play my guitars again. I need to rebuild my fingers from the ground up. They are uncooperative and they hurt, but I'm starting to retrain them. I am only able to play for a short while before the pain makes me stop for the day. With time and perseverance I will beat this and be able to play again. It will just take time. Baby steps.

  19. Hey @Simira that was beautiful. Very mellow and relaxing, nicely done!πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
  20. Don't stress, stay on session 3 but keep practising changing between the chords. You will be concentrating more on chords in sessions 5 and 6 😊
  21. Fantastic, very relaxing. Thank you for sharing😊
  22. Hi all, here is my recording of Hey Jude mistakes included. I wish I had more time to practice but like the rest of the world I've been busy preparing for eventual lockdown. This arrangement is from Hal Leonard's 'Fingerpicking Beatles'. Keep Safe everyone.
  23. Tuesday March 31st, 2020 Topic: Learning a Jazz Standard 7pm Central Time US You can watch the lesson HERE. Hey gang, Ever wanted to learn Jazz but weren't sure where to start? Jazz has a standard repertoire, or group of songs, called "standards". Tonight I'll show you how to learn a Jazz standard - starting with the melody, the chords to use, and then how to approach soloing. I'll show you the exact process I go through when I'm learning a new song. Grab your guitar and I'll see you tonight! - Steve There will be music, laughs, giveaways and more. Watch on our Guitar Gathering YouTube Channel HERE - Steve
  24. I would've gladly sent you the postage, but I have all three sitting at the ready in the living room. So far I'm focusing on the L & M course. I considered going off on a song learning tangent, but hesitated at the thought of playing Lion King 1000 times to get the F barre chord down. :-)
