I'd probably go by Grace Boogie, granted if you took that name, you'd probably have to release a disco album every now and then.

I like the Paris Texas soundtrack. It's probably my favorite. I also like the theme Schindler's List and I'm quite fond of the theme from Pirates of the Caribbean.

I think that the 2-3-4 is better, especially when you're switching to a C-chord afterwards.

Andrew Bird is good. I personally prefer Jolie Holland's whistling to his, though.

Thanks. I guess I just never noticed it before. I think I noticed it this time because of the dissonance between the bass note and the note two octaves above.

Change in pitch on the low E string

Whenever I let my low E string drone, it seems to drop in pitch. Not initially, but after a few seconds. It gets really bad and creates this terrible dissonance, especially when I'm playing on the high E string. Does this happen to anybody else?

I've seen Sonny Landreth do it using just his middle finger. I want to figure out how he does it.

Tremolo Picking w/ fingers

Does anyone here have any tips for tremolo picking without using a pick? I've seen it done and I'd like to improve at it.
