it's raining without some sunshine
that feels like the worst mirror of mine
but i await a rainbow
without much faith to show


maybe color feels better
the rain is getting me so dark
there's no contrast inside me
i'm only feeling bad


let's come in the sunshine
get along being a friend of mine
it will change all some day
we'l get along…

Sunday Free Noodle 21

This Weeks noodle is:



Matt Stevens - Draw (Rough Solo Mix), Guitar/Fuzz Bass/Guitar Synth, Filter Pedal - Stuart Marshall Drum Loop - K Feazey - Programming Recorded by K Feazey Not mixed or mastered.



This weeks noodle is an example of when you try something and it doesn’t work - we went for an electric solo on this, thinking kind of Neil Young/Thurston Moore/Zappa(live)/Greg Ginn messed up soloing - we just ended up kind of messy. Thats what happen when you do last minute… Continue

Easy Solution To a Common Acoustic/Electric String Problem

Found a solution to an often mentioned problem when having installed a piezo type bridge plate pickup transducer. The consensus of several Internet responders who have done this is that while the sound from strings 2 through 6 is good, the high e-string  is way too quiet with no real ring, sustain, etc. Some have suggested moving the transducer for that string away from a brace, Adding a 4th transducer, a not so easy job, etc.I recently installed a JJB pickup (jjbelectronics) in a 40 year old…See More

FGM DGBE

I play two-thirds of a guitar. I have some wrist issues with fretting the 6th string. I enjoy finger picking but have been an avid follower of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for about 6 years. I find Dan Huckabee's beginners arrangements great for the bari-uke. I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
