Startled awake at an ungodly hour today with a phone call from work regarding an urgent issue. Nearly thirteen hours later I arrived back home, tired to say the least.

I am hoping some of you heavy guitar toads out there can help me with somthing…Playing “Hiding Place For the Moon” by Antoine Dufour, as tabbed by Tabbed by Vincent Gauchot / Nolono. In particular (see the attached *.png) the Chorus sections measures 40, 41; 70, 71; etc.
I have read the article “Play Chordal Harmonics” by Ron Forbes-Roberts and found it be the best article so far on pinched harmonics…I have also search… Continue

Since the beginning of time (we do not count time before guitars were invented!), builders and players have argued about which bracing scheme produces the loudest and most balanced tone. To this day, one can readily find threads on on-line forums with topics like “Shaving Braces for better sound”, “X-bracing vs. Fan bracing” etc.. In developing RainSongs we were forced to research this issue in deciding how to construct our instruments.

Carbon necks pretty much do it all!
CARBON NECKS DO NOT WARP
Wooden guitar necks can warp and become unplayable. Humidity changes cause wood to absorb moisture and swell or to dry out and shrink resulting in warped necks. Additionally, when the fingerboard wood contracts, the frets become too long and the sharp ends stick out causing player discomfort.
Carbon fiber does not (appreciably) swell or shrink with… Continue

Looks like I'm making my 6th trip to Ireland, the land where it seems like music was invented, in a couple of weeks. I'm honored to have been invited back for my 3rd year in a row to the Clonakilty International Guitar Festival just southwest of Cork. Have been asked on this occasion to present my Gillacamp over a 3 day period. Nice thing about these shorter sessions is that I get to pull from my larger menu of topics.
Whole point here being that I want to encourage all players to… Continue

This is an unnamed Breton Dance that appears in several tutor books for violin. I heard my wife's fiddle students play it and thought a simple classical/finger-style guitar arrangement of it could work. Here it is no technical challenges for most pickers. Please do not republish this arrangement without permission. Enjoy
The embedded tab is on my Home Page on this site.

Having fun right now in the middle of my 5th annual 'Gillacamp' in Troy Ohio hosted by Sound City Music. As usual it seems that the highlight for the students is the camaraderie among the pickers and 'my' highlight is recognizing that there are still people out there willing to learn how to use a metronome and study a little bit of music theory.
Having a blast and I hope to see some of you at a future camp or show. Keep on playing, work on a new piece every day, and above all shoot… Continue

Ok, so I started taking lessons but now I lost my job and not longer have an income. I am doing odd jobs to pay for medical and Dental insurance
for my family, plus rent. Anyway, I want to keep up with my guitar lessons and wonder if you could recommend a good online source for free lessons. I don't want to have to start all over. Thanks

There have been many tributes to Mike Seeger since he passed away last month at the age of 75, but I thought I would add a personal one. Seeger and his music came into my life at an impressionable time—my first year of college and my first year of seriously trying to learn to play the guitar—1974. I had come under the sway of Doc Watson and Clarence White and the progressive bluegrass scene of the early ’70s but old-time music would end up having as much of an influence on me as anything, and I… Continue

So true, they have successfully taken music out of our public schools and we want to help bring music back to our community!
Music can make a child smarter and help them learn faster, have them listen to classical as a young child!

A new day in guitar design and construction dawned on the music world one rainy afternoon on Maui. Dr. John Decker, a physicist with degrees in aeronautical engineering and a doctorate in plasma physics, was attending an outdoor wedding when a sudden shower began to drench the party, including the solo guitarist. Decker, a classical guitarist himself, sympathized with the player's dilemma: Should he run for cover and risk the wrath of the bride's… Continue

On my home page you will find a tab for Blind Mary. Blind Mary is one of Turlough O'Carolan's lovely melodies composed for harp. It translates really well to the guitar. Here is a simple arrangement. I put it in D as that is the key my wife plays it on fiddle. This is an easy arrangement but there are a few ornaments that may need work. Please do no re-publish this version without my permission.
The Slaves Dream is a lovely 19th century song melody which was preserved as a folk tune… Continue
