  1. @colderThats a great list👍On the 'Wes' album's I should have said "Smokin' at the Half Note" .(It is a live recording with the Wynton Kelly Trio, which is a treat in itself) Also recommend any thing by current day virtuoso, Frank Vignola ( my current jazz teacher).
  2. Cant go wrong with Steve's lessons...your son's lucky he has access to them. i'm giving the Fender one a pass...
  3. I liked the Gibson "Arlen Roth" lessons too... Steve produced some excellent lessons there too. It's a shame Gibson took them down and didn't save them. I looked at the Fender website and it says Free Trial, but doesnt say how long.
  4. @colder Thats great you're listening to some jazz lately. May I suggest you check out: Wes Montgomery' s " Boss Guitar" and " Live at the Half Note"; Joe Pass' " Virtuoso" and the all time classic, Miles Davis, " Kinda Blue" . Happy listening; Neil
  5. @matonanjin Generous offer Ron. You may have something here... Perhaps we could start a "Resources Sharing Library" . Somthing like this; A Member posts their unused/seldom used/ unwanted guitar or song instruction for donation. The recipient pays the postage; far less than the cost of the courses or books/cd's. They receive a resouce to study that perhaps they could not afford or were unsure of. The resource doesnt gather dust and donor helps a fellow student on their guitar journey. What do you folks think? Neil
  6. Really . I never paid attention to "heavy metal" . Strongly disliked it. Still do.
  7. he best explain it to me too...
  8. Yes on the Ditto X2 you can Import/export your loops with a USB cable. It also has a 1/2 speed and reverse effect built in (I've never used it) But as Doug says, the main reason I got it vs. the Ditto 1 is the dedicated STOP button. You can avoid doing double clicks all the time. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/DittoX2--tc-electronic-ditto-x2-looper-pedal I found it takes a while to get used to using a looper, and I've never really "mastered" it (yet) The main thing I'd use it for would be practice playing the rhythm track of a song then playing the melody over it. Steve has a video on this to help. https://gx169.infusionsoft.app/app/storeFront/showProductDetail?productId=67
  9. Very nice and relaxing Maria 🙂 Thought I was listening the "The Spa" channel on cable tv. N
  10. I've sent some suggestions, comments and dare it say it, complaints, to their tech support about their website over a week ago and had no response.... The content is great there, but the site structure, function, layout etc. imho isnt' nearly as good as this one! They are overdue for an overhaul.
  11. @ScottH And Scott.. for those simple songs with chords in a given key, focus on the root ( the "1" chord) the 4th( Major ) chord and 5th (Dominant 7th) chords . This is a very common chord "1,4,5" progression, (especially in the Blues) and you'll find yourself stumbling upon some familiar sounding songs🎸. A lot more fun this way! (You could also try "1(major), 6(minor), 4(major), 5( domanant 7th)" chord progression, for a '50's, '60''s style pop rock progression. N
  12. Note; This information had been verified and the topic is now unlocked for comment if desired. Neil
  13. Thank you to @Popeye Mike for this pm to @Eracer_Team-DougH Doug- The information is accurate, I was one of the members who received a letter from True Fire stating that my account information may have been compromised due to unwanted tampering with members account data. I had also sent an email to True Fire in December stating that my credit card had been compromised and it was a new card and I only had 4 transactions on the new card with True Fire being one of those transactions. I just saw the post last night and noted that it was locked, so I could not respond to your post. Mike
