WyoWoman BS: Thanks, Who-HOOO! and Keep Going! (35) RE: BS: Thanks, Who-HOOO! and Keep Going! 10 Mar 02

Thanks, y'all. And the barre chord thaing is good news, too. It's interesting -- all the things I'd let hold me up in the past are disappearing as reasons NOT to play. I thought I had to learn ALL the chords and learn how to barre or I just wasn't going to be able to do much. Then the three-chord thread let me see how much was available with just a plain ol' I, IV,V progression. Now, I probably have a dozen chords I can get to more or less quickly -- at least rapidly enough to do a SLOW song ;-> and I"m getting faster. I learn new chords on an ad hoc basis and slowly, slowly build up the base of knowledge.

I also bought this great little "gig bag chord book" that has every chord known throughout the entire GuitarWorld, which works as a great reference: I can take one look at a chord and say, "Rats. My fingers'll NEVER reach there. How about doing this song in G???"

I still forget about two-thirds of what I know as soon as I have to play in front of one other person. But I imagine that, too, will change with time.

And Catspaw,do you still have Cletus and Cleigh's bubblewrap capes? Shall I make you one, too? You could wear it for our 2003 calendar.... I know, I know... I'll make you a bubblewrap thong!!!!

I think I may have just come up with a new concession at the Neil YOung Center ...
