    Buc, I have heard you sing a lot of songs but this one you sing and play it exactly the way I think I would want to. Excellent job!
  2. In Topic:Poll: Gibson Dove, Black, Natural or Cherry?

    Black = Excellent at displaying fingerprints!

    Natural = is natural

    Cherrry = It looks like Mr. clown shoes

    So, natural it is.

    It is coming along! As many of us have stated before, your pitch has improved dramatically. Your first attempts were littered with sour notes, now being off pitch is more the exception rather than the rule. I do think the key the song is written in is too low for your voice. I've gone through the process of learning a song but then found out I couldn't sing in the same key as the artist. Now I begin learning a song by learning the first verse and the chorus. Then once I have the melody memorized I play with different keys until I find the key that works for me the best, then I write out the song in that key. I do think it is time for another lesson. I feel that learning the significance of how chords are built will help you improve in some key areas. I'll pm you. I wish I had the tech knowledge to make some clips so that I could model what it is I am trying to convey.
  4. In Topic:Is tuning up to open E safe on acoustics?

    So many votes for open D?! Okay, I will look into it. I was just interested at seeing visually how the open tuning changed the "caged" blues patterns. I eventually just grabbed an old MIM Telecaster, tuned that to Open E, and fooled around with a backing track just to see what it was like. It was fun.
