  9. Diane, Your gift of capturing the heart of the moments we shared and writing them down is wonderful. I'll submit a full recap once I catch up on my sleep and dig out from the mound of audio gear, snacks, and guitars in my garage. I was telling Paulette yesterday that I regretted not being able to spend a bit more time with you hanging out and catching up. We'll make it up next year. Honored that you are part of our guitar family. The thought of a Delaware trip has crossed our minds more than once! - Steve
  10. Thanks Diane! Even when I forget you're right there to help. Thanks, Steve

  12. Triple-O, The main idea is that you land on the right chord tone when the chord changes. And you can walk up or down to that note from the previous tone however it works out step-wise. Sometimes you can add a chromatic note here and there to get the number of notes to work out right. But you can also just double a note if you need to. Hope this helps. - Steve

    note tie ?

    Yes, I forgot to mention that one. Yes, it would sometimes indicate a slide as well. In strict guitar notation (in other words, if the sheet music was written for guitar) a "slide" would be indicated with a straight line between two notes as opposed to a curved line. But, much of the time, you will be reading music that is written for other instruments. In that case, it wouldn't be uncommon to interpret a curved line as a slide. So, the question becomes as the player, "What do I play? a Pull-Off, Hammer-On or Slide". The answer is is that it is up to you as the performer to play whatever you prefer. If the composer had a preference then he should have taken the time to write in specifically what he wanted - otherwise it's the performer's choice. - Steve

    note tie ?

    Yes, I would read that as a pull-off in guitar notation. Here's the scoop... 1) Curved line (Tie) between two notes of the same pitch = A TIE that functions as a rhythmic extension of the first note to make the first note longer in duration. You'll see these on notes within the same measure and also to hold a note over the barline. 2) Curved line (Tie) between two notes of different pitches = A SLUR indicator for a wind instrument. If you were playing a clarinet then you wouldn't re-articulate the second note. BUT, guitar players are not wind instruments, so if we see this between two notes in a guitar piece it would indicate to use either a Hammer-On (if the second note is higher in pitch than the first note) or a Pull-Off (if the second note is lower in pitch than the first note.) Hope this helps. Learn all you can! - Steve
