  1. Past hour
  2. I am surprised that this would even be a question among musicians! 🙃
  3. Yesterday
  4. Noting pathetic about a guy doing something he loves. Rock on!
  5. Hey Henk- Thanks for the view. Amazing to watch how much he has going on. I have a hard time with one guitar, my left hand and right hand doing what they are supposed to do and real lucky if my foot stays in time!
  6. A very talented musician, thanks for posting Mike. I need to get one of those big horns. Henk
  7. I am always looking around for music and artist that catch my ear and make me stop and listen. Not just listen, but really hear, feel and be moved by their music and talent. I came across such an artist today- Reinhardt Buhr. I know that his music is not for everyone, but I was so impressed by his musicality, expression, composition, timing, obvious instrument playing music talent (instrument choices) as well as his ability to improvise, play, sing, record, loop all while improvising and entertaining live! The music may or may not be your taste and style, but just watch the video and see
  8. How's it coming along JohnnyH? I also decided to get back to it. I started on January 1st and I will start session 3 today.
  9. Thanks for posting this! Definitely a technique I need to practice!
  10. Dolly Parton statue sounds like a no -brainer for Nashville I wonder, are they talking to Alan LeQuire?😋
  11. I do a version of Tiny Bubbles on ukulele.
  12. Last week
  13. I was always taught the rule of thumb is ... just one more.
  14. @Plantsman13 how could you have walked "on too many previous posts"? Thanks for your input.
  15. I am surprised that Blake Shelton doesn't have a "metronome" the "timing" for the release of his latest song was terrible. I guess we really do live in a "multiverse" bubbles for rich, bubbles for the poor. Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles. Country Music, all it takes is Three Chords and the Truth, most of the time. Now that's better.
  16. Slow the metronome down to fit the hardest section/measure you’re working on; then you can bring the entire song along as you improve. A great idea is to use the metronome to practice syncing your rhythm to the backbeat on beats 2 and 4. Great for “losing” the monotone sound of beginning guitar students and taking a step towards sounding like a musician. I also find counting out loud (or to myself) is a great technique for practice. Hopefully I didn’t walk on too many previous posts; and yes, I’m not where I want to be yet in this regard.
  17. Like it was said above, if you're playing along with a song , the tempo is set for you, so no need for a nome But I've learned one thing If you're playing on your own or in a group and you're the lead guitar, you set your own tempo ( fast or slow) and everyone will have to follow. So if you must use a nome, set it slow enough for you to be accurate and speed it up as needed. Don't worry about what the original was recorded at, you're playing it now as you (I know it sounds like I'm recommending not using a nome)
  18. I'm not sure why you need the metronome if you are playing along with the song. When the song starts you should be able to tap your foot, or however you get the beat, and then play along with that beat. But if you want to be able to get the tempo, to set a metronome, perhaps to work a lick or section, there are ways. First, most metronomes will have a "tap tempo" mode. This allows you to, as the name suggests, to tap a button on the metronome with the beat and then the metronome will set itself to that speed. On my Line 6 POD 500X the button is just called "TAP". On my phone app,
  19. If you want it and can afford it why not get it? When I could afford a 1966 GTO I didn't want one. Now I want one and cannot afford one.
  20. When practicing a song from YouTube how do I know what bpm to set the metronome that would fit the speed of the song
  21. Jay, you will find them worth the wait. But, yes, you want to get started. good luck to you. Anytime you have a question, or frustration, post here. The are a lot of helpful folks here always willing to answer/advise. Even if you don't have a question, post and let us know how you are progressing.
  22. Took the plunge and now eagerly awaiting the DVDs to get started with this program.
  23. I just put the D’Addario humidity control packs in 3 guitar cases. In GA the issue is usually to much humidity but in the winter months I do like a fire in the fireplace and this dries up the house a good bit. I use Boveda packs in my cigar humidors for the same reason with good results.
  24. Lizard People By Fleetwood Mac Based on a survey a few years ago by The Public Polling Policy revealed that there were 12 million Americans (probably more) that really believe these Lizard people conspiracy theories. I was sadden to read about the Nashville bombing. An act of violence by someone who appeared to have lived on a diet of conspiracies. Most people aren't concerned with Lizard people from the Constellation Draco or 5G, but its the danger these believers pose to others when they decide to save the world or to right a perceived wrong that was based on lies.
  25. Yes @Jay.A this one; https://gx169.infusionsoft.app/app/storeFront/showProductDetail?productId=5 Be sure to get the Bonus Book too; https://gx169.infusionsoft.app/app/storeFront/showProductDetail?productId=13 Yes I would agree that FOCUS is essential to learning guitar well, and you should stick with this program and NOT divert from it too much. Steve does say that you can use other "resources" like Song Hits, or Easy Pop Melodies https://gx169.infusionsoft.app/app/storeFront/showProductDetail?productId=45 for example, BUT the MAIN FOCUS should be the core course. You can suppleme
