Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up December 31st, 2014
So it is New Year’s Eve and I decided I needed to check in with the TG Universe. I hope everybody is having a good Holiday Season, maybe even getting some extra time for music exploration. I had a pleasant surprise last night as a nice little tune dropped in to visit. I managed to harness a section of it then and finished it early this morning. As raw as it is I played through it towards the end and invite you to give me a little feedback, mostly along the lines of what picture it might paint for you. It does have a title, in my world, which I mention after playing, that you might not want to hear as you think about it. Maybe cancel the audio at that point if you want to play along. It is really a song that could use lyrics, not a pyrotechnic guitar piece, and maybe next week we can toss around ideas for that.
I opened the News with a chord that related to something recently on the Forum, the “What Chord Is This” thread. I think we got the diminished answer for that one, so I talked a little about diminished chords in general. Coincidentally, about the time those messages were flowing, I was puzzled over another mystery chord. I had a few thoughts, and even consulted Guitar Pro, and would like to open it up to the Community for discussion. The notes were on the 5th through 2nd strings at frets 3, 1, 2, 3. Let me know what you come up with for this. An aside, Guitar Pro completely failed.
I also mentioned s bit about IGC, which we are just getting to work on but there is a good chance we will change dates or sites. Hopefully more info on that will be ready in a few weeks. I can say Dave Nachmanoff is trying to rearrange his plans in order to join us. He told me he had the time of his life, which I know is how many of the folks who joined us felt as well.
Other than that, there was a little random improvising and rambling, as usual.
All the best to everyone heading into 2015!
