    Re: RIP Jerry Jeff Walker

    Like Ramblin' Jack Elliott, JJW played cowboy and sort of became one ... He considered himself a gypsy songster, I think. He really brought a down-home-country authenticity to his performances. When...

    Re: Key of Bb

    In an actual tune or song in Bb you could encounter any number of chords "outside the key" - that is, chords other than Bb-Cm-Dm-Eb-F-Gm-Adim-Bb - there could be chord substitutions, especially in...

    Re: RIP Jerry Jeff Walker

    The success of Mr. Bojangles was a great boon to JJW, and the NGDB version of Mr. Bojangles was a big influence on my own musical journey at the time, but his Viva Terlingua album had an even greater...

    Re: Key of Bb

    Tom, in general, you would use the seven alphabet letters to name each chord in any key. So you will have 7 chords in the key named after the seven letters A - G, in alphabetical order.

    In a major...

    Wow, another very thorough explanation, thanks Caleb. In one video, Tony McManus made all the old slide blues and Dylan Blood On The Tracks tunes I play seem really boring. Now I want to do DADGAD...

    Re: Mandolin to DADGAD

    I guess I've answered my own question with a brief internet search, people who prefer DADGAD call it "modal D tuning" since the open chord is neither major nor minor, of course the chord is a sus4...

    Re: Mandolin to DADGAD

    Like pops1 I have a small repertoire I do in open D tuning, and I have a question for all the DADGAD players, which is why is DADGAD tuning preferred by you guys instead of open D? (D-A-D-F#-A-D)? I...

    Re: Help with musical notation and tabs

    Time flows across tablature same as it does in notation, John, so the F note you see tabbed is played first, followed by striking all three strings in the F shape with a percussive mute on the F...

    Re: Ways Like A Crawfish

    Thanks Simon. The riffs were inspired by Bo’s recording, I couldn’t nail them like he does, but I spent time a few weeks ago trying to get what I could. I love his licks too! Tri-ple-ty stuff, the...

    Re: A-strings constantly going out of tune

    Sue, you've noticed that pressing the strings between tuners & nut does affect the pitch noticeably, per your post (#7) above. So, more than lubricant (graphite, etc.), what you really need is to...
