  4. I found this article to be interesting. Especially the chart with all the notes. https://www.guitarlessonworld.com/lessons/learning-the-fretboard/

  6. Amazon guitar invention, or so they say. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocnxXYjdJ6w
  7. The year is 1947. Mel Bay was asked to write guitar instructional books for returning GIs (Galvanized Iron). I assume it was the “War Department” that was involved and the GI bill would help retuning vets buy the books. Mel approached 3 major publishers and was turned down, because guitar playing was on its death bed. He then started his own publishing company. He traveled around the country selling his books and meeting thousands of guitar teachers. Elvis Presley probably played a big part in preventing the “death of the guitar” and helped the Mel Bay’s company become a major source

  9. I always assume that when you played 3 or 4 notes, like double stops, (dyads) you just referred to them as triads or chords. I didn’t know there was such a thing as a triple stop or quadruple stop and that all stops are collectively known as “multiple stops”. I read on line that in guitar music there is no such thing as a triple stop, yet I am currently looking at a guitar music book that uses the term. I read that “stops” is a term that comes from the violin.

  11. Singing about winding roads in Maryland ended up being the song “Take me Home Country Roads.” Denver and his friends had never been to West Virginia, but Maryland didn’t sound right nor did Massachusetts where they were living at the time. They chose W. Virginia because it sounded better. I always thought the song was out of place for John Denver,because his favorite state was Colorado.I didn’t realize two of his friends, Daroff and Nivert, struggling musicians, started writing the song in hopes of selling it to Johnny Cash. When Denver heard what they were working on he offered to help them
  12. “You don’t need to leave so soon”. Well, I think the members In Sally’s path would disagree. Good Luck. I thought just the usual things would be the problem,food,electricity,fallen trees, roof damage and flooded steets etc. I was watching one women looking out her window where a rather large alligator had washed up in her yard keeping her stuck in side. I also have relatives in the area. So, in addition to the strom she also just tested positive for corvid- 19 after returning to her elementary teaching job.
  13. I am glad you figured it out. I had the same problem and it turned out that the nut groove was cut wrong for the B string.
  14. Here’s a guy that wrote about 200 songs. He took the name Denver because his real name wouldn’t easily fit on some marquees. I had always heard Yamaha guitars were pretty good. I read that they also built his guitars.Can’t really see the name on the guitar he’s holding. interesting side note. Some UFOLOGISTS have taken a special interest in his life and death. They claim he was the child of one of the survivors of the 1947 Roswell crash. It must be true I read it on the internet and fact checked it at a MUFON site. The Mutual UFO Network. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y
  15. O, Shenandoah, I long to hear you, away you rolling River. Shenandoah, was among the songs in my early collection of guitar books, Mel Bay‘s method books. One of the exercises consisted of two versions of Shenandoah, without lyrics. They were some of my favorites. Recently, I remembered the song and I pulled it up on the internet and was surprised to see it come up as a “Sea Shanty”. I thought the song was about the Shenandoah Valley in W. Virginia. I would have bet money it was their state song. A “River Shanty” might be a more accurate term. It was a “work song” sang by fur traders
