Spinoff from "favorite song" - The National - TheCurmudgeon
So someone in the favorite song thread mentioned "Slow Show" by the National. I'm a 50+ bluegrass, classic country, southern rock etc guy and would have never found this. I have to say thanks, that was a good tip. Been listening to them for a couple weeks now. Lyrically great songs, and thei...

re: Online guitar lessons - TheCurmudgeon
Just starting out? I'm self taught until recently, and wish I'd have had someone give me some structure at the beginning. Jumping around youtube is a good way to learn specific songs, but sometimes you just need to ask questions or have someone catch a mistake before it becomes a habit or make sure ...

re: Guitar Players: Whats your strategy for learning a new song? - TheCurmudgeon
to learn: I've started breaking them into pieces, learning the pieces, then putting them together. Meaning don't try and run through the whole song from start to finish. Do the verse or chorus or bridge as a stand alone, get it down. then add another section. 3 or 4 steps later you've got it. ...

re: Incompetent Judges ( they're everywhere these days) - TheCurmudgeon
maybe 1 out of 20 judges is elected because he or she is a good attorney and has the correct judicial temperment. And usually those few are unopposed. The rest are only there because they got more votes in a popularity contest. Although there are some very good judges scattered across the stat...
