Re: Song Suggestions Needed

1. Proud Mary - CCR. Easy to learn, well-known, and everybody loves CCR - great with a female lead also, remember Tinas T´s version? :-) 2. Start me up - Rolling Stones. Easy, up-beat and a great song! Might be a problem with the open tuning though... :roll: 3. The Passenger - Iggy Pop (nice rhythm...

Re: Where Did The Guitar Tabs Go?

I saved a whole bunch of the GN lessons in Word format (to print off for my own personal use) before they were all taken off. Happy to email these to fellow GN members (although I wouldn't want to get GN into trouble...) I would really like to get some of those copies, Orion... That is - like you s...

Re: Where Did The Guitar Tabs Go?

I'm working really hard to bring the tabs back. In fact, it's something I'm working on every day. It's still too early to announce anything, but it's possible you may see some of them again this year. :D That´s great news - hope everything works out well! And thank you all for all the effort you p...

Re: Where Did The Guitar Tabs Go?

What´s the latest development in this whole issue? I saw that a couple of song-lessons on the easy-songs section was archived at another site, supposedly with "complete tab and lyrics"... Is this something that could be done for all the song-lessons (fingers crossed :wink: )? I really miss all the ...

Re: Your Gear...

Nice guitar Staffan! .../ I did the exact same thing thing not too long ago with a Cort that had an open hole./... The reason was to allow installation of a pickup with an endpin jack/... Thank you, Blue Jay - and thanks also for clearing this out with the un-mounted strap button! I should have gue...

Re: 2 lessons and not doing so great

Khayes, I think you´ve already realized the most important thing - and that is to have fun while learning! I started out somewhat late (i was 29) and at the beginning I sucked so badly, it was ridiculous but I was determined to learn how to play guitar and I was able to actually laugh at how crappy...

Re: New Travel Toy

I went and bought something called a "guitalele" this summer, to take with me when I traveled to Italy. It´s basically a ukelele (body-wise) but with six strings (that´s where the "guita-" comes from :P ). Think it was a Yamaha and it was small allright, and light, but not that good sound-wise. It...

Re: Your Gear...

On my Furch Acoustic there´s a metal strap pin, so I guess I was comparing to that one in particular. Doesn´t matter though - I´ll buy a metal one and put on this one for sure. /Staffan those are pretty high end guitars, aren't they? i see one for sale for about $3400. what's the advantage of a ...

Re: Your Gear...

Congrats Staffan! I have a D-15, too. Great guitar and awesome tone. But, to me, the best of that guitar is how it smell! :mrgreen: Yeah, I see what you mean by the way it smells, it´s special! Well, here are some pictures... they´re not very good (at all). Sorry for the bad quality and poor aest...

Re: Your Gear...

So, my GAS struck again :D I just bought a new acoustic yesterday; a Martin D-15 - all solid mahogany dreadnought. I´ve only been able to play it for an hour or so, but - man - the sound is really cool; rich and fluffy! 8) Gonna put up a picture of it when I get back home later today. So far - I li...

Re: 13 years of playing, but it sure doesn't sound like it!

Hi Glassjaw & welcome to the forum! If you haven´t done it before then I would suggest that you try out a teacher, take a few lessons and ask this person to help you put a good practise-routine together. This way your playing can benefit the most from the time you spend with the guitar. If you donÂ...

Re: Song Retention

Really funny thread! Just to hear about all the little mis-haps that people have experienced, even while playing live, but also to hear that (almost) everyone seem to experience the same difficulties with remembering songs you haven´t played in a long time, so that´s kind of reassuring I think. I ...
