Re: Greetings

I have clumsily disguised all the titles by translating them somewhat crudely into Italian. Anyone who knows Italian - and many who don't - should be able to figure them out immediately. :rofl: Great idea! With my upcoming annually holidays in Italy a nice way to check my skills... :thumbsup: Did a...

Re: Bluesy babbling (excerpt)

Good idea! :clap:
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: )

:welcome: HoochieCoochieMan! I'm sure you'll enjoy our community. :beer: All my material is classic blues (Willie Dixon, Jimmy Reed, Eddie Boyd, ....), and as far as I can tell there's no copyright on any of this stuff.

Re: String bending technique ?

Hi Fredm, the first rule to learn for playing Blues is: forget the rules (well, at least most of them) and LISTEN. Players like John Lee Hooker or Albert King played against many rules and still can bring you to tears. If you follow your feeling and just try it (or listen to good players), you may f...

Re: Yamaha Initial Response Acceleration

The IRA feature sounds a lot like voodoo to me. As a natural scientist I tend to rely more on physics than on feeling when it comes to technical features. All matter has a natural frequency (and wavelength) according to De Broglie, but for things greater than electrons or atoms that's too small to n...

Re: What's an Arpeggio?
