Re: Independence Day gig in the village

I can't get the Youtube dealy to work and I have to go to work. :wall: No problem, the magic link corrector works again... :alright: (Maybe I have to fix the script to accept complete URL's instead of the ID?) Fantastic performance! Sweet tone, tasty chords and licks, great voice - there's no "out ...

Re: hey

The "basics" can be used to look for details while going through the other parts. It's a lot of theory, but you don't need it all. At the end of http://12bar.de/rhythm.php is a short overview of some 12bar songs played by EC. But in the archive ( http://12bar.de/community/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=39 ) th...

Re: It's difficult to concentrate on blues when ....

If you do go to Loch Ness for a paddle remember to pick your spot carefully - it's 750 feet deep (230 m)! Apparently contains more fresh water than all the lakes of England and Wales combined - well all our rain has to go somewhere. :alright: Glad to see you back on the forums safely after all the ...

Bluesy bends

OK, here's my humble take after some weeks without practice. But - it's getting better. :dance: Looks like precise bends have really a lot to do with consant practice! While I can play some fingerpicking songs instantly without thinking it's harder to bend a string to the right pitch and put a vibra...

I have clumsily disguised all the titles by translating them somewhat crudely into Italian.

Just back on my guitar :chicken: after 3 weeks or so now jamming and bending to your upload. Maybe you'll upload the BT and everyone who's
interested records some 12bars or so with focus on good and bad bends... (I'm currently good on bad bends with lacking practice :whistle: )
