Jim Yates replied to Donna Zitzelberger's discussion Capos are Great Training Wheels in the group Capo Users Group
"Michael - If you learn the chromatic scale: C C# D D# E F F# G G# A A# B C... capos are easy.  If you are playing C shapes open and you put the capo on, you count up the number of frets the capo is on and that's your key.  If you use…"

"Hi Edward,   I can't download it -- It's a different version of Microsoft Word -- is it Vista?  That usually happens when people send me Vista documents.  Can you make a PDF of it?  Donna"

Hi Donna...

I remember a long time ago you commented on my song "Light at the End of the Tunnel" based on a Pennsylvania Mining accident. I was so happy with your being moved by the song that I asked permission to include
your comments on my website on the "People are Talking" page.  I was
reading over the page recently and adding more comments when I came
across your kind words.  The song was based on a television news report
with LIVE coverage of them bringing out the miners and the families
looking for them that I saw one night.  Well, I have since written a
short story based on the song.  I thought I would share the short story
with you too.  Hope you like it!  Edward

Donna I have learned a lot in just one week of joining the AG site! I just came across your message regarding the Matrix MR-600 and it sounds wonderful! Currently I'm using a BOSS TU-80 it's a tuner/metronome combo but you can't really hear the metronome when you playing loud. So 100 points for Donna! I will look into purchasing the Matrix MR-600 and I will gift my BOSS TU-80 to deserving beginner guitar student. Again thax Donna!

Hi Donna I read your comment just now. I fell the same way you felt after I saw it. Although I never thought about all the young eyes that might see it also. I am the father of a 9 year old and I would not want him seeing it. Whats more I think it is offensive to female guitarist thanks for opening my eyes maybe more will see as you do.

Hi Donna, I hope Monty takes our advice and keeps moving along his guitar journey. I see you had Justin Guitar link in one of your comments...I actually found the site quite good when I started, but couldn't quite come to grips, I simply needed a better structure....Take care and have a Rockin New Years Eve...Cheers Greg

Donna, I have sent you a request for friendship. I hope you accept. I was doing some preliminary reading before my first post and noticed you were active there. (So many forums are not active). Since you seen very qualified and know a great deal about classical guitars, I know you could help me greatly. I must assume these pix are from students. I could really use your advice and expertiese.
Respectfully submitted
