  1. My cover of Brad Paisley's version of "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" on my Taylor K24ce. A spur of the moment recording on my iPhone to see how it would sound. Trimmed the ends and added a fade in/out in iMovie, added a little reverb in Garage Band, and voila, here it is, warts and all.
  2. Any time you see a chord name such as G9, A9, C9, etc., it's just a dominant chord extended. A dominant chord is a triad with a flatted 7th, so the notes of a G7 are G-B-D-F. A G9 adds the 9th, so the notes are G-B-D-F-A. A Gmaj9 would be G-B-D-F#-A.
  3. Thanks! The back and sides ain't bad, either.
  4. Santa brought me a Gretsch Broadkaster. I plan to record "True" on it in the near future.
  5. What a great song. I see some backing tracks available on Amazon. Not sure where you could find reliable sheet music, but I think I'll do some digging.
  6. I'm not into the GOAT thing, either, especially from the clowns who came up with this list, lol. I mean, Chet Atkins at #23? Seriously? And my all-time favorite isn't even on the list.
  7. Thanks, Greg! Thanks, Wim! I started "True" yesterday, a Martin Taylor song taught by Tim van Roy. He said early in the first lesson video that it's quite a bit easier than most of the songs he teaches, but I'm finding it even harder than Saltwater, lol. We'll see how it goes.
  8. Here's my rendition of Tommy Emmanuel's "Saltwater" instrumental. It's a combination of his original release, a more current version as taught by Tim van Roy, and a few of my own ideas. I'm not overjoyed with this recording, but it is what it is. I lost track of all the starts and stops trying to get this done. In fact, this is the only recording I made it to the end. Time to move on to something a little easier. Thanks for listening. P.S. I mentioned Tim van Roy. If you're looking for song tutorials, he's really good, but most of the songs he teaches are pretty tough. You can find him on YouTube, and he has a Patreon page where you can subscribe, download sheet music and sometimes mp3s.
  9. When you start playing the F barre chord, you'll need to use your second finger there, so you might as well get used to it now. That said, it's a good idea to learn alternate fingerings for chords, as some forms make chord changes easier, depending on what chord you're going from/to.
