    Re: Biscuits and Gravy

    Thanks Simon. To be clear, the Don Julin tune, and the Mike Black tune by Three Bean Salad, are two entirely different tunes with the same name. No similarities at all between them that I can...

    Re: Biscuits and Gravy

    Kevin, all I had was the first part, it's linked earlier in this thread. Haven't fooled with this anymore, just looked it up again a few minutes ago.

    Re: Biscuits and Gravy

    I decided to hunt for this post today as I'd forgotten the name of this tune and how it went. Discovered that the video of Don Julin's Biscuits and Gravy referenced above had been deleted! No...

  7. Re: is an arm rest a benefit to technique ?

    An armrest is not necessary ... could it possibly be a benefit? I'd have to say yes. I like having an armrest and people have reported that it helps with their right hand position. Not all people,...
  8. Re: Chords for Mighty River by Railroad Earth Help!

    Might help if you go into detail on what you've tried and what you don't like about what you've tried? I've found numerous pages with chords for that song with a Google search. Do you have the chord...
