  1. This is just something I came up with last year while messing around on my Tanglewood, using a strum/stop rhythm method, capo on 2nd fret Blue Boy
  2. Hi!

    Cheers guys
  3. I enjoyed trying these, and inadvertently came up with a variant of the cool E chord, playing X07750 by mistake. But I liked what I heard, then changed the 5 to a 6.
  4. You don't stop playing when you get old, you get old when you stop playing!

    1. 6string


      Tell that to my mirror.

  5. Hi!

    My name is Larry and I live in the north East of England, wet and windy land. I've been playing guitar on and off for more years than I can remember (I'm now 50), and I hope one day to be actually able to play it! I currently have 3 guitars, the newest a Jose Ferrer classical, the oldest a Fender DG5 which I breathed new life into yesterday by putting new strings on her (D'addario Extra Lights). I had that guitar for Christmas 2004 and it's always been there, waiting to shine. A couple of years after I had it I treated it to a set up which lowered the action, making it playable. Even so it always felt like I was playing a cheese grater, so painful. Putting those extra lights on saved the guitar, she's like a different guitar! I also have a Tanglewood Discovery series super folk with cutaway and onboard electronics. It's much smaller than the Fender and easier for me to handle, and it's a fabulous guitar, straight out of the box, no set up needed. Other instruments I have are a Tanglewood ukulele, a Deacon A style mandolin, a digital piano, 2 recorders, a clarinet and a cheap mouth organ! Like I said putting the new strings on has given the Fender (named Tilly) a new lease of life and I hope to play again, get past the sore fingers stage! I found an article on this site showing alternative E and A chords, playing from the 5th and 7th fret , and I had a go, even coming up with my own (X07750 to X07760) Anyway that's me done for now, look forward to meeting you all and getting on with my playing.
