Re: Give a little bit.

Hi there

And sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you...

"Give a Little Bit" is one of the lessons I happen to still have an original copy of. If you'd send me an email (dhodgeguitar@aol.com), I'll gladly send you a PDF file.

Peace

Re: Bass Guitars Comparision

Of these five "acoustic bass guitars" the last two are regular guitars. I'd find out who wrote this article and ask whether or not he's serious about being taken seriously...

Re: What are scales?

I absolutely agree, David. When dealing with people starting out, it's important to simplify. But at some point, folks have to stop confusing shapes with scales, and understanding what scales are at a deeper level. And I agree with you. But also consider that most people learn visually (they say th...

Re: What are scales?

This is pretty much the way everyone teaches it. But I find it helpful for beginners to say "Root, whole, whole , half, whole, whole, whole, half (which should be the root note again)." It's a little thing, but it can make all the difference in the world when you're explaining it to someone who's no...

Re: Beginner's videos

Hey Dylan "Long time, no see" seems way too much a cliché, but I guess there are reasons some things become cliché. Good to hear from you again and sorry to hear you're no longer playing guitar. But it sounds like music is still a part of your life, so that's encouraging. Maybe you're interested in ...

Re: D Chord GRRR....

Hello and welcome to Guitar Noise. There are zillions of "zombie threads" here in the Forum pages and responses like yours are why we keep everything up and running. No point in reinventing the wheel, as they say. If you run into further issues (and in all likelihood, you will), just start a new thr...

Re: Begginer looking to purchase a guitar.

First off, a belated welcome to Guitar Noise. Being a left-handed guitarist, I'd like to make some recommendations. First off, if you can play comfortably right-handed, then by all means do so. For most people, though, it comes down to whether or not your right hand will do well keeping rhythm. If s...

Re: Is it New or Used?

Hi there Guitars can hang around at stores for ages. Being left handed I often see the same guitar hang out at the same shop for years. Granted, you would think that stores would take steps to clear out inventory every once in a while (and to be fair, most try to) but there's bound to be that one gu...

Re: Learn by playing songs

Hi I mostly agree with this, except that you can't help but learn a bit of theory and where notes are on the fretboard simply by paying attention to what you're doing. For example, if you're playing an Em chord, you can't help but notice that you're only fretting two strings, so figuring out the not...

Re: Iron & Wine - Time After Time - Tuning

Hi there The post you linked to is in C#, which led me to try playing it in DADGAD with everything tuned down a half-step. That proved to be very interesting and now I'm going to have to go back and explore it some more! Essentially in this tuning, you'll find that playing a C/G shape (finger on the...

Re: New guy from Texas

Howdy yourself. Welcome to Guitar Noise. It's usually a bit quiet over the holidays, so my apologies for not getting your posts okayed sooner (the first five posts have to clear through moderators and I guess I'm the only one checking in over Christmas!) Anyway, looking forward to seeing you around ...

Re: Alternate picking: Should I use my elbow ?

Hi there You're going to get many different opinions here, usually related to one's individual experience or preference. For what it's worth, I find that ultimately one doesn't use either the elbow or the wrist, but rather the muscles at the base of the thumb (I believe they're called the "pollicis"...
