Guitar Lessons: Bass Teachers, Help Needed Please?

Hi, I’ve recently started bass guitar lessons with a teacher who has who was recommended to me as being a brilliant teacher. He’s been to been to Berkeley aswell so..

Anyway, my first lesson with him went really well except that he told me that for fretting i should place my fingers in the middle, as opposed to directly behind the fret. I thought this was odd because you can get fret buzz doing this, and i’m not sure why he said that.
I didn’t push the issue at the time as i assumed he had his reasons and was correct, but now i’m wondering if i should have. What should i do? I don’t want to offend the man.

Thanks for any advice
Thanks Georgie : )

Guitar Notes: What Should I Include In My Scrapbook For My Boyfriend?

The classic banjo pickin’ scene from the movie Deliverance. Deliverance is a 1972 drama film produced and directed by John Boorman. Principal cast members include Jon Voight, Burt Reynolds, Ronny Cox, and Ned Beatty in his film debut. The film is based on a 1970 novel of the same name by American author James Dickey. The screenplay was written by Dickey and an uncredited Boorman. In 2008, Deliverance was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”. Billy Redden plays “Dueling Banjos” opposite Ronny Cox, who joins him on guitar. Redden plays “Lonnie”, a mentally retarded, inbred, but extremely gifted banjo player. The song went to #2 for four weeks on the US pop chart in 1973 and topped the adult contemporary chart for two weeks the same year. It also led to a successful lawsuit by the song’s composer, since it was used in the film without his permission. “Duelling Banjos” was arranged and performed for the movie by Eric Weissberg and Steve Mandell and was included on the soundtrack album. The song had been composed in 1955 by Arthur Smith as a banjo instrumental he called “Feudin’ Banjos”. Smith recorded it, playing a four-string plectrum banjo and accompanied by five-string bluegrass banjo player Don Reno. When he was not acknowledged as the composer by the filmmakers, Smith sued. He eventually won, receiving songwriting credit as well as royalties. Two


My boyfriend and I have been together a year. He’s a student at uni 180 miles away so I hardly see him. I was going to get us tickets for a concert but I can’t afford it. I’ve got a scrapbook that I brought in the past but never used it. Past gifts I’ve made for him include a wristband that I made myself and a jar of 100 notes of things I love about him and little poems I wrote. He’s made me a necklace out of a guitar plectrum that he carved in the shape of a heart :). So we both love homemade things. So I want to outdo him for our anniversary :p I’m including emails we’ve sent, tickets to shows he’s taken me to and train tickets, plus some pics. But how can I make it extra special? Knowing him he’s planned something big lol. I love this man so much and want to show him

Guitar Games: Why Are Some (not All) Women So Materialistic?



store.steampowered.com – Axel and Pixel on Steam. In an ill-advised blind, tired haze, TotalBiscuit randomly buys an indie game on Steam and plays it for the first time. I still don’t know what the hell happened.

Some only really care about clothes,shoes,makeup and handbags, but I’m much different than that on the other hand because I don’t really care about clothes and shoes. But I love my electrical equipment such as my guitars,computers and gaming consoles.

I want to play this on my guitar and i can’t find them anyware!!

PLEASE ANSWER THIS QUESTION.IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT!!(JOBS)?

Hello , I’ve been thinking about the future and there are a few jobs that have I would love to do but I’m not sure which one.I really don’t care about money to be honest just as long as I’ve got enough for the bills and food.And also I would like to live in America.Here are some of the things that I’ve been thinking about:
Actress:
I know , it’s sounds a bit mad but I would love to be an actress and be in the big movies.I know that my chances are very weak that I’d ever make it and all but still
I am quite good at acting so I am going to join the drama club and I could get like a main role in a play at school and when I’m like 14 I could be in a comercial then later on in some sort of a tv show and get an agent then a small movie and afterwards I could be in more movies and they’d get bigger and bigger?
That’s usually the case for most famous and successful actors.

Or
I could be a singer.
See the problem is that I’m not that good at singing, I could go to lessons but could I really become good in a matter of years?I don’t know.
But say if I went to singing lessons and maybe like keyboard or guitar lessons for a few years and then apply to go to a music school and then when I’m like 18 or something go and apply for a record deal and if i didn’t get signed then try again but perform at gigs and all.
Or
I could be a dance instructor.
I am a good dancer when I’m by myself but I seem to kind of mess up when around others but I could work on that.
I could go to dance classes and then go to a dance school to perfect everything.Then go and live in america when I’m like 20 and work on a holiday site as a dance instructor (kind of like in dirty dancing lol) but I would really like to the kind of dancing they do in dirty dancing so do you guys know any holiday sites where I could do that kind of thing??
Or
be a teacher or a social worker or a psychiatrist (if that’s how you spell it?!)
i think that I’d like to do this one the least out of the above I would like to do it but not as much as the others.I could pick subjects like psychology , child development and health and social for my GCSE’s and hopefully do well in them and study them at college/uni in America and after a few years go on to teach at a school or be a social worker or a psychiatrist.
Thanks if you bothered to read all that (lol) I really would appreciate it if you helped me out .You have no idea how much this means to me.Please don’t be rude I know I might seem a bit mad but there’s nothing wrong with reaching for the stars right??
Oh and I live in quite a small town in the UK , I am a teen girl so I have sometime to perfect any of these skills.I definitely want to live in America though.Please don’t be biased and base your answers on what I have just told you and don’t bother telling me I’m mad or crazy because I really want something out of my life and I am dedicated.Please be as detailed as possible.Thanks!

Guitar Notes: Struggling To Cope With College And Especially Work, Need Advice?

So, here’s the picture.
I do five days at college, 9am while 4pm.
I also work 8am while 5pm on a Saturday at a bakery.
I’ve also just taken up another job at a rehearsal studios which is for an hour a night at 10-11pm. Sometimes later.

I feel like I can’t cope anymore.
I really want to do well in education, but I come home, bearing in mind bus rides make the day longer, write essays as homework, exercise and then have to go to bed. I have no time to revise or write notes.

And working at the bakery is horrible, it just makes me nervous and the staff are all very bitchy and I can’t deal with that. I understand there’s always some people you don’t get along with, but everyone? And one thing I really miss are my weekends. I used to get most of my work and revision done then instead of having to tear my hair out every day of the week. I hate having to attend college Monday to Friday, working Saturday, and doing college work Sunday.

I’d love nothing more than to quit. I’m so sick and tired of the place. If I worked week days it’d be fine from the reward of a weekend.

But my family aren’t well off, at all. And if I quit I’d only have the job at the rehearsal studios to fall back on. It would even out around the same pay, slightly less. But my parents are adamant I keep both jobs.

I don’t have time for revision, my hobbies anymore (writing and guitar). And I miss having a social life on weekends and having a break.

I really need some advice, I’ve been miserable for nearly a year over it and I can’t deal with much more.

Guitar Notes: Medical Malpractice For 2 Slipped Discs In My L4 &L5 Lower Spine In Uk. What Sort Of Money Is Awarded For This?

in june 08 i slipped a disc while in spain and after spending £1000 of my own money on medical bills and painkillers/injections flew home after 4 days of treatment. i was advised as soon as i returned to the uk to seek emergency treatment as it was very severe, i could no longer walk or move at all. as soon as i got home to the uk i went directly with my mother to rugby hospital a&e and they told me i had only pulled a muscle without any examination at all even though i had letters from spanish doctors to inform them of my condition. they gave me a few ibuprofen and that was all, within 3 days i returned a second time as by this point i simply could no longer take the pain and by this point my left leg had a 2ft bruise down the side.. this time the same hospital yet again told me nothing was wrong and sent me to xray NOT for an MRI scan. they left me outside xray for 2 hours without pain relief screaming in agony then had to take 7 X-rays at least as i could not lie still. after severely telling me off for wasting their time they did give me a little morphine then told me again nothing was wrong and again sent me on my way..thus a week after i returned to the uk i saw my doctor and he instantly sent me to another hospital, coventry, and i had to have emergency surgery just so that i would walk again. unfortunately it was not all that successful due to the week wasted and medical negligence by the doctors in rugby and i now have to have my 2nd op on wed 20th jan as i have finally found out i have cauda equina and i am loosing my ability to use my left leg. as well as this i have to take an overdose in painkillers, 10 tramadol 50mg and 10 cocodomol per day just so that i can function although i do often need more than this for the pain relief, i can no longer walk, lost all sexual function, can not lift anything anymore due to my condition, have to now have tests for extensive liver problems due to the painkillers im on plus a few other major problems.
2 years ago i was a very fit 33 year old who rowed 1000 strokes per day, had a £100,000 a year job as a pro guitar player who was on the verge of signing a big deal to a major label as well as a lot of session work. i could also work as a senior art director/designer for many of the worlds top ad agencies (as i had done for the past 13 years) and i had a very good future ahead of me that i had worked very hard for through my adult life. not only is all of this now gone i have been on incapacity benefit for 2 years near enough now and still never had a letter apologising from the rugby doctors. although it sounds a strong word to use i can honestly say due to Rugby’s medical negligence my life has now been destroyed. my solicitor is in contact about compensation but has been now for 18 months at least and nothing seems to be happening so i am wondering if you could help me at all or do i have to wait until im 40 (5 years away) to get a pathetically low amount of compensation thats probably less than i could have earned in the past 2 years.

if you can help please do get in touch asap, i have my pre op tomorrow morning then my 2nd major op on 20th and i have been informed of the risks of the 2nd op and they due to the extent of my damage could leave me in a wheelchair for life, not repairing any uses in sexual function at all (i am already expecting this not to help) and i may be left living with wast bags for toilet usage as i shall have no feeling from my waist downwards.. this is all simply due to the fact that in the beginning if the doctors in rugby a&e had sent me for an mri scan, and rugby does have an mri scanner by now i would again be leading a normal life not preparing for a life of disability. there are also risks that i may be going through another op and it simply wont help due to the extent of damage i have due to the medical negligence of rugby (twice in less than 1 week, even with spanish doctors notes, spanish medications – steroid injections that i was told to use for 7 days, 1 per day. rugby simply through all of these in the bin and laughed saying, i quote “we don’t use that in the uk as we know what we are doing”

i know its impossible to put a cost onto what i have lost due to this but here is a small list,

2 years of constant pain.

i now have a very weak bladder.

internal damage due to the amount of time taking painkillers (very strong).

loss of movement in left leg, its to week to stand on now so i must use a stick to walk when i can walk.

although i do suffer from depression (bipolar) at times i have wanted to end my life due to loosing my music career as it meant everything to me.

i shall never be able to play with or lift my godchildren.

i doubt i could ever have my own children anymore and i did want kids one day.

i can no longer do any sports or even run so i imagine i will get fat by 40 as at the moment i have to eat very little to not put on weight.

loss of a a £1.5m recording contract with atlantic

I’m 15, my hands are average size, my guitar is a full size, but I find it insanely impossible to play chords due to not reaching them properly. For example, I try to play simple G chord, it feels like my hands are stretching too far, and my fingers accidentally touch other strings making horrible dulled sounding chords, or there is an odd buzzing sound. HOW do I fix this, it’s so frustrating? Thanks.

Pretty epic. Domo (the drummer) also plays lefty and yes, he recorded this. Oh, and it says “Authentic Strummer” for Razzmatazz (bassist). This means he up-strummed the whole song. WTF RAZZ www.youtube.com www.youtube.com www.youtube.com for the links above, take out ALL spaces
