  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. Howdy guitar players. I haven't been around much the past few years. My hearing loss put everything on hold for a while. I cannot hear pitch correctly anymore so this might be my last song with vocals. More and more I need AutoTune, and that makes vocals sound very processed and weird. I think my latest attempt at vocals might also suffer from being a bad song. That song will end up abandoned due to bad writing. Also, I'm always a bit dizzy, or more than a bit. Listening to music is a chore as I need separate outputs through an EQ and headphones amp. I am selling all my live performance gear, and perhaps another guitar or two. I'll keep a guitar or two and play a little everyday until that is no longer possible. I might be able to record instrumental music a while longer. The attached song is the last song written for Lewis & Walker X, and perhaps my last vocals on any recording. I got to play my chromatic harmonica. I love playing that thing. So, here is a recent, auto-tuned and heavily edited song" https://youtu.be/DAy_wesbrI0
  3. Recorded about 9 or 10 years ago. I still like it. circle.mp3
  4. Hello

    Hello Musicians, I've been studying for about a year now. It has taken me three months or more to learn a three-chord song (ADE). Last night when I was practicing, I felt like I could finally move to the different chords while keeping the 4/4 rhythm. In order to get this breakthrough, I tried to introduce a new strum pattern. Instead of the usual down-down-down-down. I tried a slap and an upstroke. This seemed to help me go ease into the 4/4 rhythm with the downstroke. So I'm finding that I'm going to have to find out what works and feels right for me. It seemed like I may learn incidentally. I'm going to try it with another song. This will be interesting. I was becoming so frustrated, but last night I had a breakthrough. I notice an improvement. If anyone has similar stories of improving on songs, I'd like to hear them. I'd also like to know how you mastered barre chords. My fingers are getting callouses. Anien
  5. I haven't posted anything is a while, so here is one from a few years back.
  6. Hello there! I'm an absolute beginner - I got my first guitar, a Rogue RA-090 Concert Acoustic-Electric, yesterday, and am so looking forward to learning more about this wonderful world of guitar music. I have a problem though; yesterday night, I tuned my guitar, learned a couple chords and practiced. Everything worked perfectly fine and I was having a great time. Today I decided to pick it up again despite the finger pain, and learned the D Major chord. I had my fingers in the right place, and when I played the chord, I noticed a loud buzz. I figured out after playing the strings individually that the buzz was coming from the B string on the 3rd fret of the guitar. I tried to fix it by changing the positioning of my fingers around and pressing harder/lighter, but nothing got rid of the buzz. I then tried to play every other string on the 3rd fret, and the same problem occurred - every string that I played on the 3rd fret of the guitar had a loud, noticeable buzz with it. I tried changing the positioning and pressure again, and nothing worked. I proceeded to then test every other fret on the guitar and they all worked beautifully, it's just that the 3rd fret has a horrible buzz whenever I play it. Is there any way to get rid of the buzz? Should I go to my local guitar store and talk to the repair specialist there? Is it possible to fix it myself? Thank you so much for reading; as a beginner, I appreciate all the help I can get. Thanks! -Kynnaryth, a beginner
