Re: More Gills in a Pink Fish

I did listen to all of them, and I hope you don't give up. Your voice fits exactly to those very melancholic songs, fragile and desperate. They also fit perfectly to my current mood fighting a still unknown disease/infection (MRT gave no results). Of cause I like the bluesy first one in E best... :c...

Re: Tuning for 8-String Lap Steel Blues

Like BB, I'm no help, 6 strings are more than enough to me. :big_smile:
But the scale generator http://12bar.de/php/scale_generator.php can handle up to 8 strings so you can print scale/chord sheets if you need. :wink:

Re: Saturday night rig

Lucky guy! Sounds really like a nice place... I have been getting a kick out of showing up with a different guitar each week. OK, that may be getting expensive after some weeks... :lol: guitar_fire:: :music2: :lefty: :music1: :guitarist: Last week I went full on vintage and brought my 1963 Alamo rev...

Who's there?

There hasn't been much traffic here the last weeks and I wonder who's still reading here. It would be nice if we can live it up a bit - any ideas? I know that I didn't post much either, since a few weeks my health is not the best (see older post) and the doctors are still searching. Yes, we're getti...

Re: Blues Chord Progression Question

Not an easy question, because Blues can be interpreted strictly or not. The song is not a typical 12 bar or 8 bar Blues, but contains Blues elements and Slash's Blues guitar style. A poll doesn't help to answer.
For more theory, see: http://12bar.de/cms/tutorial/rhythm/

OK, a bit more than nothing. Been down with a virus for nearly 3 weeks now, couldn't even use the time to play. :angry: Today I listened to a well-known song EC played some guitar in until I realized it was the 12 bar form. :aha: So I played the main riff, looped it and noodled along in two takes.

First half is just beautiful atmospheric noodling, but the second I'd consider psychedelic! :big_smile:
