Re: Tears in Heaven - Bluefingers

Tears in Heaven is a song written to commemorate Eric Clapton's son Conor, who died when he fell from the balcony of their 53rd floor apartment. The fact that it made it into a film is to relate the events in the film to a period in time.

See pages 266/7 of Clapton's autobiography.

Re: Is my guitar action good?

I've only ever seen one guitar that needed a truss rod adjustment, and that was a bass with a severely warped neck. You turned it one whole turn? I'm surprised you didn't warp the neck a long way the other way; one quarter of a turn is the maximum recommended by the experts. Exactly what is that rid...

Re: Tuner question.

Looking at the spec on the Korg website, it only seems to work in standard tuning - 7th string tuned to B Drop A tuning means your 7th string is an octave lower than your 5th, so your 7th string fretted at fret 12 should sound the same as your open 5th string. Alternatively, in drop A, your 7th stri...

Then ask your lady what is her favour...

Re: Help with a song.

My score is from the "Recorded Transcriptions Guitar" book for the album, published by Hal Leonard. The song's written in two sharps - D major or B minor - but it's tonally ambiguous from the start. The opening riff and most of the verse accompaniment can be payed around the 5th position using the b...

The choris ends in with a d chord back in black lyrics
Noteboat did say "almost every phrase" so I'm not sure what you're getting at here.

D is the Subdominant in the key of A, which actually reinforces Noteboat's point.
