What does it mean to "KNOW" how to play a song to you?

Here's something I've been struggling with a lot. You hear some piece of music and want to learn how to play (and sing) it. I personally look to see if there are tabs available for it. What is available will usually be the basic chords of the song. If you're lucky you might get the intro and or one ...

Re: Your Gear...

So soon after I ended up getting yet another guitar while in Seoul for business. It's a G&L Tribute S500. I love it. :) Photos later.

Re: New Travel Toy

Hey thanks for the info. Unfortunately I am just now able to check the forum, on the day of my flight back home :). I did go to Nogwon twice. The first day I found 3 guitars I liked but didn't buy on the spot because I wanted to do a little bit research. One was a countess brand acoustic with very n...

Re: New Travel Toy

Hey. Did you say where you bought the guitar? I am going to Korea soon and if you got it while there, I'd like to take a look too.

Re: Your Gear...

I just had this guy (American Special Telecaster) brought in from the US. Expect to see more of my blabberings around the forum :)

Re: Digitech RP-50 Woooooooh

I came to this - my own post from years ago - through a google search when I had the same problem with the same unit. Turns out I was giving it 6V of power as opposed to 9V. This, is a note to myself, more than anything :)

Nice playing. I thought you're better at some parts than others so you might benefit from concentrating on those parts that you are weaker at. I leave it to you to decide which parts those are :)

Thanks for sharing.

(Typing without reading the comments above so I don't get influenced) I think the rhythm and playing is pretty good. Starting at the 36th second you seem to be switching to some sort of overdrive or effect. It sounds like either the recording equipment can't handle the signal level or it's too loud ...

Sounds pretty "big". Sort of like part of a film score. I like it in my own unqualified way. Thanks.

Yes I do think this latest mix is better than all the previous ones although I had not at first thought the vocals were too quiet in the original mix. :) I guess that's why peer review is a good thing right ? :)

Thanks again.

Hey guys. I recently joined a 10 week program consisting of Fitness Kickboxing (2 times a week), High Intensity Weight Training (once a week for 15-20 minutes) and a better diet. It not only helped me lose about 10 pounds, but helped me convert some fat to muscle - muscle requires more calories to m...

Yet another mix

OK. I've decreased the volume of the vocals a bit and removed all effects. I also reintroduced the pick-up guitar track. I think the recording sounds a bit fuller with it. http://thatissopunkrock.org/down/im_not_dead/im_not_dead-mix03.mp3 I also decided to sing this again later. I have a feeling I c...

New Mix

Here's the new mix as promised. I got rid of the effect on the vocals (except for a new one to amplify the volume) and removed the pick-up recorded guitar track. Let me know what you think :)

So it seems I wasn't able to fool anyone with my mumbling :) OK. I will remix this with the guitars quiter and the vocal closer to the front. Don't say I haven't warned you though :) Stay tuned. Kidding aside. Thanks a bunch for all the comments. One of these days I'm even going to pop into the sing...

I'm Not Dead (I'm in Pittsburgh)

OK. This is a Frank Black cover. From his recent "Fast Man/Raider Man" album. I'd appreciate if you take a minute to listen and comment on it. To help out. Here's my comment. I find my vocals boring, but see an improvement in the fluidity of my guitar playing. I also miss where I should start singin...
