Rough week.

I wrote this a couple days ago. My brother is in a coma with cerebral hemhoragging, drunk driving accident. We don't know if he's gonna make it, haven't been able to sleep since, good thing we have our guitars. It got me thinking about alot of things. The song may not be great, but it means somethin...

Im assuming this is dealing with major/minor tonality necessity over dominant requirements. Miles Davis must have something, I would research it from one of the big international quote sites. Its likely they will site an article text its derived from. Try http://www.quoteworld.com Im sitting at work...

Its too bad that we have to rely so much on abbreviated convention rather then consise representation. I guess it would be alot of work to replace all the Csus4 notations with. . . C(Drop the third and replace with it with the 4th) Symbols. Just remember that unless a direction is added into a chord...

I wonder if youll be one of those guys who becomes a legend someday. The kid that couldnt read tab, all kinds of personal problems, and hits big with some huge guitar aided masterpeice. Never aim small bro. But do me a favor, and get a guitar in your hands while your learning. There isnt a pilot out...

To determine what chords are in a specific major or minor key, I do one of two things. 1. Consult my psychic. 2. Flip a coin. Heads = Only one chord in the song, the starting key chord. Tails = Consult the audience, like on Who wants to be a Millionare, and ask what they think would be next. This is...

Ive spent a good couple of years studying modes extensively, and Ive always come to the same conclusion after a few months of concentrated effort. Modes are the single most useful and useless things on the music scene. Contradictory, I know, but so true. That probably only makes sense to some people...

I want this to make sense to me. Ive tried really hard for an hour or so. Reading and re-reading the post. I played with some dice for a while. My cat ate it. Read the post again, got a soda, watched my cat throw up, commenced playing with dice again...still dont get it. Note this is a dig at my stu...

There is a definite connection between the two. Also they will engage most conversations with "Yo", even if its textual. It gives them an urban "I dont need proper linguistics" edge to their communications. You can also spot them downtown, sporting a paint chipped electric foreign Fender clone looka...

I dont know who the jerk is that first started spreading rumors about theory being detrimental to development or success, but when I find them its going to be trouble. I spend twice as much time on theory and study then I do on actually playing. As soon as you can, start reading, itll be the best de...

Just the repeat function. I never understood the methadology behind allowing people to consider using GP after the trial ended. Im gratefull that they did, but I still find it odd. Since the print capacities are disabled I suppose that puts a hinder on its uses, but if you play in front of your comp...

LOL, how many guitar playing psychologist/pathologist/physicians do we have here? Maybe you should double book your guitar lesson days with a trip to the shrink for a little hypnotherapy. While hes got you out, maybe he could throw in a couple quick lines of you being a guitar hero with more talent ...

My instructor is a Jazz professional in my neck of the woods. And the first thing he tells his students is this. "Music is a language. Your instrument is your voice. Whether you sing or speak you need two things: A vocabulary and Correct diction. If you are going to mumble or speak like a child go e...

Come on bro, There arent any songs you cant play at a guitar store when demoing an instrument. They are there to sell. How many different types of people out there play guitar? How many different genres and titles of music do we all play? If they were to get mad at you for playing "Little Wing", ins...
