    Good and bad tone days

    I do think weather plays a part in the tone we hear. If it is humid it seems to effect the way sound moves. As to an earlier post on this thread, I agree that barometric pressure can make you hear things differently. I play mostly at a church. Every week it seems I have to tweak my tone. It is...

    How a guitar should look? The RULES...

    For colors here are my rules: SG's should always be cherry. Tele's in butterscotch. Strats and Paul's can be any color except Black. Les pauls should have a quilt or flame top with a see thru finish. I don't like matte finishes. For pick ups I like configuration to be to traditional. SSS...

    To Top Wrap or not to Top Wrap? Hmmmmm... *rubs chin*

    I like the top wrap. It looks cool and unusual. It is Rock and Roll after all.

    I was very excited to hear that Chapman Guitars are being sold through Guitar Center. I prefer to do business with their sister company Musicians Friend. Is there any word of when Chapman may be sold through Musicians Friend?

    Improving Your Modal Feel

    Improving your modal feel Modes are really cool tools to use in writing and playing. I think the way in which I learned modes was a bit confusing and left me unable to really applying them correctly. I learned modes from a scale book. It gave good instructions on what they were and looked...

    Jazz it Up! Minor 7's and Major 7's

    Here is a tip. I haven't seen many posts or articles that talk about this subject. It was something I kinda just ran into while jamming. Let's say you just wrote a cool melody line and you decided to back it with typical major chords, or maybe you are wanting to cover a song that uses major...

    What would your Signature Chapman look like?

    I don't think I could ever choose just 1 guitar and once I chose the spec for my signature, I would change my mind the next day. So today my signature would be a ML2, HSH, coil tap only on the bridge pickup. Master volume knob on the cut away (like a Gretch), set maple neck, Ash body, maple...

    Diminished Scales, Soloing in a Major Key
