  1. Thanks, I just bought another one of those fake books and this time I read the copyright information. It got me thinking about Cover Bands, juke boxes, karaoke, street performers, school sponsored bands and teachers, especially those on the internet.
  2. I have a couple of hypothetical question! 1. Can Steve teach a song on his live lessons as long as he keeps the lesson plan to less than 10 percent of the song? 2. What does it cost a music teacher to use copyrighted material for educational purposes on line or in a classroom?
  3. A few years ago I bought the Hal Leonard Real Book. It has some interesting songs and the melodies are fairly simple. At the time I knew they were called Jazz Standards and that was confusing. I thought Jazz was supposed to be difficult and here were about two hundred Jazz Standards that were pretty easy to play. It wasn’t until I played around in session 18 did I get a better idea of what one did with these beginner melodies. Now, I realize that these “Real Book Songs” along with the exercise “Swing’n” in session 18 are actually called lead sheets. I will never look at Autumn Leaves the same again, especially now that I have been looking at a 13 page arrangement based on that 1 page lead sheet. I just got “The Real blues Book” and just browsing through it for a few minutes I already have a dozen questions, but at least I know I am looking at Lead Sheets.
  4. Does anyone have a sagework support system for their classical guitar? Is it as easy to install the magnets as some youtube sites show?
  5. I enjoyed listening to these student play. I always thought playing Classical guitar would be great, but I was scared away by the nut width of a classical guitar. The way they hold the guitar, with the neck up, always made sense. I noticed early on that holding the neck up made your “fingers longer”. One thing I read once by a classical teacher, in regards to barre chords was that you only use the part of the index finger up from the first knuckle, which also made sense, that seems to be the straightest part of the finger. at least for me, but required a “long” finger. I did eventually buy a classical hybrid guitar that is clearly my favorite. Too bad these kids (or parents)need to borrow or shell out close to $200.000 for their education.
  6. I have purchased sheet music from this site and have had no complaints. Recently when I had a question about some sheet music I thought I would contact them using their support page on their web site. I real didn’t expect a response, but to my surprise within 24 hours I got a reply to my question and a phone number to contact the support person answering the question to talk further, if need be.
  7. Strange you should bring this up. Just the other day I was going through my music books and reading comments I made. I was surprised that on viewing the notes I wrote years ago most were incorrect.
  8. My conclusion about it pertaining to the chorus section was wrong. It’s a classical notation for the type of barre chord to use. I had thought that the C might indicated a capo, but since this C was at the 7 measure I disregarded it meaning a capo. I had also thought about C for Chico, but since it didn’t involve the use of my pinky finger I discarded that meaning. I have a few classical books and none mentioned this C1. This morning I took my amp to this out of the way music store to be fixed. There were books and sheet music laying all around on the floor. It looked like “tornado” hit the place. One classical book caught my eye, classical guitar by Charles Duncan. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I opened the book it was book three and the first page started on barre chords and there was C1. My other classical books use B, French for barre and not C Italian for capotasto. They also used Roman numerals like B IV meaning barre 4th fret. C1 full barre, first fret.
  9. I was wrong about it having anything to do with the chorus section. I looked at numerous versions of the song and placing any chorus section at that point makes no sense. It’s a classical notation telling you to use a full barre chord 1st fret.
  10. I have seen C1 used for that purpose, but only at piano sites.When I looked at numerous pages of piano sheet music I still only found symbols like 8 vb, 8 va 15 ma and 15mb. So, I am not sure if the piano octaves C0 C2 C3 etc.ever actually show up on piano sheet music. I figured out my C1 and it’s a classical guitar notation meaning a full barre chord 1st Fret. The line I mentioned indicates all the notes below the line can be played while holding that barre chord. C as in “capotasto”or C as in “ cejillo”
  11. I used this amp 8 or 9 months ago and it was working fine. I put it in the closet when I was done. Today I plugged it in and nothing. What would go wrong by just storing the amp? I guess I should have covered it to prevent dust from getting into it. One site said to clean the potentiometers and another said they are hard to get too. Any suggestions.
  12. I’ve come to the conclusion that the C.1 is a reference to the chorus section.
  13. Great song, I hope to someday play it. I am using the first page of the song at musicnotes to start learning it.Any suggestions? Yea, I always learn something from Steve. and sometimes I wish for more, but as they say “Beggars can’t be Choosers” It looks like you have been a member about as long as me. There used to be another member from Australia that was pretty active on the site a number of years ago. Were you playing before you started with the “learn and master course”? I ask because you seem to be years ahead of me when it comes to playing. Playing before an audience; I can’t see that even on a clear day.
  14. Some good informative. Wished he would have demonstrated more on ghost strums while using open chord progression like C A G and F. Enjoyed listening to Harvest Moon wish he would spend an entire live lesson on this song.
  15. Thanks, It’s the Fadd9 the song is using. Immediately below the F In the rhythm is a C.1.Any thoughts on the meaning of C.1 I used the term double voicing and that term may not be correct. In the Song Hits song Satin Doll, Steve uses the same music notation in the intro of that song.Its that fingerstyle style notation that I am referring too. It has nothing to do with the C.1 I probably couldn’t have made my first post more confusing.
