Nice. Is this from tab?

Comment by Louis Ruoti on September 20, 2012 at 10:38am

Thanks very much Anthony...Sorry, it's not from tab. I play strictly by ear, and no song is ever the same twice.

Comment by Anthony Galligani on September 20, 2012 at 10:48am

Oh ... sorry I meant the basic melody. I do the same thing. I like what you did - very cool.

Tks again...I Googled the song for tabs, and came up with   http://www.strumhollow.com/free_tab.htm for free tabs - and they do have one for this song. There are probably other sites also.

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

"Dan -- I ran out of time to say much but I want to thank you for your beginner's articles in FGM. I work them out fingerstyle on a nylon-string baritone ukulele."

I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More

"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…"
