Paul replied to Shahir's discussion Help with Rhythm
"Somewhere I have a one page list of a variety of rhythms with the stroke patterns.  If you like I can scan it and email it to you.  It's pretty simple to understand."

Paul replied to Pascal Proust's discussion Composing : how do you proceed?
"I've talked to several people about this subject and get different answers.  Some people start with a rhythm (Paul Simon does this).  Others start with an idea (James Taylor once explained how he was driving to North Carolina to see…"

Paul replied to Tom Jarema's discussion Holding The Guitar
"My teacher 'switched' me from the typical right leg rest to the classical position and I'm glad he did.  As you say it allows free movement of the left hand.  I also use a foot rest to obtain the right angle of the neck."

Paul replied to David's discussion string preference and gauge? Seagull Mini Jumbo, Washburn D10, Oscar Schmidt OG2CE
"D'Addario EJ17's on my custom OM - On this guitar the mediums just ring.  The luthier recommended  mediums for the first 6 months and I just got used to them. D'Addario EJ16's on the OM-21 - I just always had lights on…"

Paul replied to Steve Mirabile's discussion What is a bad guitar habit?
"This one will probably be argued but, resting the guitar on your right leg.  This severely limits the flexibility and range of your left hand.  It takes a while to get used to playing with the guitar in the 'classical' position,…"

Paul replied to Paul's discussion Arrangements in the group Fingerstyle players
"I haven't seen the book.  I googled it and found an interesting site The Sheet Music Store.  I only searched a little bit but there seemed to be a pretty broad selection of music for guitar. http://www.music44.com/ Unfortunately they…"

Paul replied to Paul's discussion Arrangements in the group Fingerstyle players
"I have purchased arrangements from MusicNotes.com and have paid between $5 and $7.25.  Take a look at how they handle it.  I've searched their library extensively and only found about 5 pieces I wanted to buy.  The arrangements…"

Paul replied to Paul's discussion Arrangements in the group Fingerstyle players
"I do more song writing than arranging and I find I want to focus my creative side on that; but I like playing solo arrangements.  My teacher gave me a simple way of starting an arrangement.  He had me write out the melody line then based…"

"I love doing my own arrangements, thats a big part of the creativity that is removed when playing solo."

Andy Getch replied to Paul's discussion Arrangements in the group Fingerstyle players
"Don't know if you've seen it but there is a Hal Leonard Fingerpicking Beatles that has 30 songs arranged for solo guitar and the back indicates intermediate level. Most of the songs are still above my level, (started fingerpicking…"

Forrest Anderson replied to Paul's discussion Arrangements in the group Fingerstyle players
"I had a teacher in Illinois who would help me make arrangements.  My issue was that I could frequently hear what I wanted in my head, but I had no idea how to pull it out of the guitar.  The arrangements we came up with were great for me.…"

Patrick Curley replied to Paul's discussion Arrangements in the group Fingerstyle players
"I'm in the process of developing a few web applications for guitar players. If I built a site that people could contribute arrangements to would you be interested in paying for them? If so how much? I'd have thought at least $10 for a good…"
