"It makes sense to convert a Major key to its relative minor, as they share all the same notes and chords, just starting on a different note (for a minor key, start on the sixth degree of a Major scale).

"Yeah Kevin, I'm really lucky to be alive right now!
There is a good ending for the guitar though…
So - I go shopping for a replacement guitar on-line. BTW… neither my

"Wow, what a story. I'm glad it saved you. We get our share of black ice in the mid central, but there is more salt on the roads than ice around Chicago. I can recall a few trips to gigs where I was thinking about what would happen to my…"
"My D-28 saved my life!
