Common Chord Progressions

Hey everyone! I'm pretty new here (having just joined like so I thought I'd start with a blog post. After surfing around and reading many of the many educational posts and comments I thought I'd start off with listing some common chord progressions I found on the web in various nooks and crannies. Haven't really spend any time on these yet since I just recently compiled the list.

I've cross posted this list on my web site…

A Father's day song for my Dad

Some years ago I wrote a song for my Dad. A few years ago I posted a link to it on and the discussion there was amazing. The usually snarky cynical group of nerds opened up. They came out of the woodwork to comment and wrote the answer to the question... "what would you say to your Dad today?... Thousands of people watched the video and hundreds commented in the thread and on Youtube. The comments in all three thread, each one a story, each one so different make you laugh, make you cry… Continue

The Cooper stand is awesome!

Hey everyone I just checked out the Cooper stand at the Nashville TN summer NAMM show. In fact it was the most unique and best product there.

Ir weighed barely anything and fits in a guitar case because of its compact size. It will even click to the right size to hold a violin or viola! It's a great stand.

Visit there site and get rid of those Hercules stands that let your guitar lean back too far and buy the cooper stand…

Learning a Riff

Just tried to learn the Riff for Rebel Rebel..GEtting there. but did find that doing it with the electric as opposed to an acoustic, it sounds better, I guess that's because it's always heard as an electric riff.

But it's coming.

Electric guitar-Fender Strat basketcase

Well I should have my newest guitar acquisition in a little more than a week from now. It is a blue with white Fender Stratocaster circa 1978-1981. Basically it is complete EXCEPT it needs tuners, strings and a bridge and tremelo unit. It is a little beat up, but I don't expect perfection for the $20 it is costing me.

I wonder how it will play, what it will sound like when I get her fixed up and in playable condition. I know it will cost me upwards of $200 to put tuners, and a…

I'm new to Acoustic Guitar and to the community. I'm trying to find classifieds, but am having a hard time locating them... can someone point me in the right direction? I'm looking for a Sound Seat. Anyone know where I can get one? They aren't being made any more.
