    For whats its worth they are all too contrived and long. I'm guessing thats a result of the fact that the discussion with your band about the name is itself contrived and long. It kind of shows...

    The melody notes are all from the G major scale. This means a good starting point would be to look at the chords contained in this scale:

    G
    Am
    Bm
    C
    D
    Em
    F#dim

    Its good thanks for asking! I am somewhat less obsessive about it now, but still working on it in the background.

    Hmmm, if anything, Hendrix is quite uncool in guitar circles nowadays. There is always someone ready to bash him. Likewise for SRV. I don't get it.

    Ultimately I think what affects opinion on this...

    I totally agree with your sentiment. A strat is a beautifully simple instrument. There is nothing complicated or magic about it. There is no need to use feeler guages to measure precise distances....

    No, its a terrible idea.

    As Vai himself rightly says, the problem is not with the guitar as an instrument, it is with the temprament used on all modern instruments. If you want to play with other...

    +1
    Not only sad, but an amazingly beautiful musician.

    *Name dropping alert* I used to live in the same room as Nick in my university dorms (with a 30 year gap between us of course...:D).

    I'm curious if there has been any specific research into this. I was initially inclined to agree that we could all have slightly differing ranges of visual spectrum sensitivity.

    We still cannot experience them. We can see them on a monitor if they are rendered using visible light (much like transposing inaudible sounds into an octave where we have sensitivity).

    Absolutely agree.

    Its kind of offensive to see someone waste so much time. I would kill a man with my bare hands for an extra 5-7 hours a day. If I got it I wouldn't spend a second on PP.

    Interesting.

    Like Jon, I can re-string a guitar pretty close to pitch, just by familiarity (though more than a couple of cents in my case, more like 10-20).

    I think you are right in...

    Mal,
    I don't have a prob with playing it, so no need to let the bass pick up the roots. I'm trying to understand if there is any theory linking them together.

    Analysis help: Josie (Steely Dan)

    Soloing is pretty straightforward as the vast majority of the song is a minor vamp.
