CLindsey5808 commented on Edward Sparks's group Capo Users Group
"What I discovered this past week off the web at Bo's Capos. Place a full capo on the 3rd fret and a Cut Capo on the 5th fret to play in the key of G. This allows opportunities to "hammer on" as well create new rhythms. Here is one…"

CLindsey5808 replied to Jim Yates's discussion Capos on the headstock in the group Capo Users Group
"I play an Ovation with a built in tuner and if I use a capo during a song when finished I clip the capo to my music stand. Some younger players might think it's cool to clip the capo to the headstock. I have friends that have over the…"

"My 2009 idea Celebrity still sings for me. The MP3 comes in handy when I play songwriter rounds because it can offer killer backing tracks. Ovation sound is hard to beat, but Martin and Taylor keep on trying."

"Hello everyone, I have just started using a cut capo. The sound is great and you only use two fingers. Put the cut capo at the 2nd fret to cover the 5-4-3 strings. This will emulate the  DADGAD tuning but a step higher. The G…"

Thank you C, for adding me to your prayer list. I know that prayer is the most powerful weapon we could ever have and use, because I know God hears and answers them. The biggest challenge for me though, is waiting on His timing. It's always perfect, of course, but I always want Him to answer "Right now!"

Hello C,
Thanks so much for your comment! If you were the least bit inspired by my hand situation, then I praise God, that this happened to me!
All I did was basically strum, for 30+ years, until, for reasons unknown at the time, I felt like I needed to teach myself to "Travis Pick". But please don't get the wrong impression, because I do not, and cannot, Travis Pick like Merle Travis did. I mean, he used the most outrageous chords and shapes, I've ever seen in my life! Now, I'm nowhere as good as Doc Watson either, but the way he Travis picks, is much the same way I do it. I guess I should just say I use the alternating bass, type of fingerpicking. Since my surgery, I can't strum at all, with a flat pick, nor pick the strings with a flat pick, because the nerve, which runs from my wrist, up into my thumb, index,, and middle fingers was damaged. But I know that God is still on His throne, still in control, and that He still makes everything work together for good, for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).
Thanks again for your comment. I needed it! God Bless you!

I used Cake Walk for years. I began to have problems with it and upgraded to Sonar...which is much more powerful.

One suggestion...back your files them as Cakewalk when your system goes down, you don't lose hours of work.

Please! Behr.... are more excrement than excellent.Please don't buy that knock off crap from Behr....r. They steal intellectual property. What you need is a proper recording interface. Did you do your demos at home? Because, from the sound of those you don't need any help. I'm assuming those were professionally recorded. If not kudos to you. You should be giving tips rather than asking for them.

Hey C- another thing I forgot to tell you is that there are some excellent sources of info online for free! As welll as the online stuff, Tape Op, for my money the best recording rag out there is free! Sign up for a scrip at, and also check oue EQ and Electornic Musicians online Mags and forums; alot of good discussion that is directly relevant to what you're doing...Peace & Love LMW

Hey C- You didn't say what your front end was, but in general when recording to PC you want a good quiet preamp or mixer (the Mackies and Behringers are excellent, as well as the ART Tube MP series..) and a couple of good quality microphones.These days most manufaturers are making high quality and very afforable mics. For under $100 you can get a set of MXL mics that work very nicely (check Musician's Friend) If your going with the ART pres get one that has the OPL option, a limiter that will keep you from excessive levels going into your soundcard. Digital clipping is an ugly thing and cant be undone once it's in the program...It is better to be a little conservative with your levels and boost them once you are mixing....Hope this helps! Peace & Love LMW
