    I always want a lighter guitar. As these are all CNC, I would guess wood choice is the biggest factor.

    I know nothing about the bar or music business but 20% of gross receipts kinda implies that bars have a pretty large profit margin.

    D minor -- saddest of all keys?

    I can't say that I agree that keys have an inherent feel. To me a lot of it is still context, such as the range in which you are playing the music. Shifting from a C to C sharp for one song may feel different for another. Add in the fact that a LOT of music is written for convenience of...

    I don’t take Selfies…

    I don't see how it is physically possible to use the micro mesh and not remove finish while removing glossiness. glossiness and stickiness is usually due to an extremely flat surface that reflects light (glossy) consistently and creates a suction effect when there is moisture (stickiness). A...

    Interesting. Seems to between the green scotch Brite (600) and white (1200 plus). Do you find it more consistent than scotch Brite pads?

    Stringing a Bigsby: The Nightmare Returns

    I have done it with fingers but much faster and more precise to use needle nose pliers - I have a pair that includes a wire snip to cut off the extra string. I also like to use the needle nose pliers to pull at the tuner end for tension, a better grip means I'm less likely to bend or crimp the...

    Woke with a chord question

    I think it is pretty universal that capitals is major and not cap is minor. Also used for the M/m. Cm7 is with minor or flat 3 and 7. CM7 is with major or natural 3 and 7. C7 is a mix, uses the major 3 and minor 7.

    Woke with a chord question

    Imo a chord is in a context of a song and a key, not just random notes one happens to play at the same time that you backward engineer the chord description, so yes it still has a character, although it can be fluid. In fact, in a band, a guitar player does not need to play the root all the...
