    Re: Best Place to Sell aside From Classifieds

    I've had no problem selling, only use Cafe Classifieds, eBay & Facebook. All three get results, sometimes only one or the other, for quick sales. Key is to make a video that can include showing &...

    Re: Best Place to Sell aside From Classifieds

    Whatever type of instrument you are selling, if you have a decent case for that instrument, no "special" box is required. Just a good, sturdy box that is a bit larger than the case, and good packing...

    Re: Tab writing apps

    I'm old school when it comes to reading, I prefer paper, and never try playing directly along with Tabledit or Musescore on the screen (mobile or otherwise) - like you and others, I do use the...

    Re: Standing position

    Gotta find what works for you, Rob. I like to wear a strap always, sitting or standing, to have my instrument in a similar position whether sitting or standing.

    Two suggestions, Bunnyf, maybe one will help.

    The first is to echo HonketyHank. Tabledit is a fairly versatile tab writing software and I use it for writing notation or tab. I use it for the...

  24. Re: A few neat exercises from Sierra Hull and Reverb
