Re: Cakewalk Guitar Tracks

: Was wondering if anyone has used this program. I want to start doing some recording at home, but have no experience and this looked fairly easy to start with.

This program is cool. I plug my guitar right into the soundcard, and it doesn't sound bad. Iam thinking of getting a midi-interface,to plug in through that, but I'm not sure how it would work. It is about at the same quality as a low cost tape recorder

I was using the program with Windows ME. They say it's really not supported with ME but it ran fine. It's a great program actually but I now run Windows 2000 and they don't have an installer to get it running on anything but 95/98! I want to know if anyone knows of a special installer that would work with Guitar Tracks and Windows 2000.

Changing tubes

I own a Marshall 4101 combo. I need to change the preamp tubes, but they're hidden inside a sort of armor casing. How do I remove this casing to gain access to the tube?

Andy Powell and Wishbone Ash

There is not a more underrated guitarist in our business than Andy Powell leader and spearhead of the progressive rock group Wishbone Ash.After 30 years of great music Andy still has Wishbone rocking with a new lineup.Wishbone Ash is somewhat well known for their two lead guitar attack all thin lizzy and the allmans,but more importantly Im addressing Andys technically faultless and very tasty chop.with a solid blues background his emotional phrasing even supercedes Carlos Santana.I highly recommend any of their fone recordings especially the live one

Re: Andy Powell and Wishbone Ash

THE GREATEST... THEY FULFILL THE SCRIPTURES OF ALL GUITAR PLAYING..forget your Hendrix's, Santana's and clapton's .. WISHBONE ASH are the pinicle of GREATNESS.. YOU ONLY HAVE TO HEAR A COUPLE OF SECONDS OF THE INCREDIBLE PHOENIX TO SEE THIS... I WISH MORE PEOPLE WOULD SEE THIS

Re: Andy Powell and Wishbone Ash

What makes a guitarist so special?
Andy Powell does have his own distinctive sound (check out the Matamp/Boogie sound from the mid-seventies, together with his very own Gibson flying Vee). Like Hank B. Marvin always hitting the right note.
Very, very underrated.

Are there any classical guitar players from Malaysia?

Greetings from Malaysia. I love this site. I just wondering are there any classical guitar players visit this site as I am.

Re: Are there any classical guitar players from Malaysia?

: Greetings from Malaysia. I love this site. I just wondering are there any classical guitar players visit this site as I am.

Of course, there are at least a handful of them. Although I don't play the classical type, I surmise there are bright sparks here. A majority of them just do not have the opportunity to get themselves exposed.

here i am

songwriting and transposing chords

Could someone explain to me how to transpose chords? Also, know any good sites on songwriting?
If you could e-mail me I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

Re: songwriting and transposing chords

A song is constructed from a scale and said to be in that key. A song written with a C scale is said to be in the key of C.
Lets say you have a song you wish to transpose from C to G and your progression looks like this:
C Am F G
C Am G C
Knowing the the C scale looks like this:
C D E F G A B C
And the G scale looks like this:
G A B C D E F# G
we will replace each letter from the old key with one that corresponds with it from the new key. C is the first letter of the C scale so replace it with the first letter of the G scale (G). A is the sixth letter of the C scale so replace it with the sixth (E) from the G scale. F is the fourth letter of the C scale so replace it with the fourth (C). And so on... Keep major chords major, minor chords minor, 7th chords 7th... Transposed, it will look like:
G Em C D
G Em D G
Here are the major scales to get you started. If you plan on writing music, you'll find it useful to memorize these and learn how chords are derived from each scale. It will help you understand why certain chords sound good together and others don't.
(b will denote flat)
B C# D# E F# G# A# B 5 sharps
E F# G# A B C# D# E 4 sharps
A B C# D E F# G# A 3 sharps
D E F# G A B C# D 2 sharps
G A B C D E F# G 1 sharps
C D E F G A B C
F G A Bb C D E F 1 flats
Bb C D Eb F G A Bb 2 flats
Eb F G Ab Bb C D Eb 3 flats
Ab Bb C Db Eb F G Ab 4 flats
Db Eb F Gb Ab Bb C Db 5 flats
Here are some pages on songwriting I've found worth recommending:

History of Electric Guitar

Who really invented the electric guitar?

Re: History of Electric Guitar

My vote goes to Rickenbacker. I believe they had the patents for the first electric guitar pickup. They were originally either fitted to their own lapsteel guitars (nicknamed frying-pan) or retro-fitted into pre-made steel string Spanish guitars.

Re: History of Electric Guitar

It was Les Paul the jazz musician who first invented the solid body electric guitar, with his 'Log'. This was a block of pine with some pickups attached, a gibson neck, and some Epiphone guitar sides stuck on for aesthetic reasons. He invented this in around 1939. He took it to Gibson, and they laughed at him. Then Leo Fender had huge commercial success with his 'Broadcaster' (Later Telecaster), and Gibson got in contact with Les to look at his log again. He helped design the Gibson Les Paul model, which was released in 1952.

There you go!!
