    Is John Watt the most exciting general rock guitarist in Magle.dk? I think so.

    Oh no, oh no, I'm starting to float above listeners, before they surf me out.

    I'm calling these continuously changing videos "The Lost Chord Explained#1".
    That's right, please, be forewarned.
    I'm deleting a video that has been surpassed, replacing the same name with another.
    So throughout this thread, I'll be the original "The Lost Chord Explained#1",
    and the last link on and in these pages will be the newly activated one.

    That's just like getting up to jam onstage or play with a band,
    the songs you played, the notes you made, disappearing for everyone.
    The next time, hopefully, will be better or just as good.

    This video is about using all six strings to play chords.
    The "open G chord", can be a barre chord, if you want it to.
    I explain about a chord formation most guitarists never get into,
    using the G chord for an easy reference for all,
    and then I get into playing the formation in A minor.
    I do that, to demonstrate how much action there is in this formation,
    and to use E minor as a big difference, and another technique righties can't do.

    That's saying a lot, but then here's the video proof.

    I'm being bad, jamming out a video, but the less I talk, the better they get.
    And if someone said to leave all the videos on with active links, I probably would.

    This entire Magle.dk domain is symphonic fantastic all the way,
    but for once, I have an idea, thinking it would be nice just for here,
    to have one place to post that you can keep editing as your,
    uh,
    general rock guitarist identity.

    Just like country artists used to have answer songs, women for men, men for women,
    I'd like to get some answer videos, and start a couple of categories.
    "The G-string jam" oh yeah, jamming up the g-string, and...
    "Play Misty 4 U", seeing a lot of acoustic Misty, one of the biggest songs of all time.
    I might be making lo-to-no budget videos with a small acoustic,
    taking off the anodized copper strings and putting on Ernie Ball 10's,
    but my fretting fingers are finally flittering in front of your face.

    That's it, that's all, from now on, let the general rock videos roll.

    Play Misty 4 U

    "Play Misty 4 U"

    Trying to play all six strings all the time, as if playing with lots of feedback,
    I work my way walking a bass note through the entire progression.
    You don't have to interrupt my personal association with an old high school friend,
    to say that Misty has a traditional turn-around at the end of the verse,
    not the chord I came up with that I know you can't play,
    unless you are playing with the bass strings on the bottom, and the highs on top.
    And for me, it's the traditional turn-around that makes it sound oldies.
    Previous technique and evolving techniques are available for immediate upgrade.

    G-string jam

    G-string jam.

    Maybe I should be starting a thread for each general rock guitar category,
    but to be open and honest, I'm not seeing a lot of activity to justify that.
    We'll see what happens. One Watt is happening.
    I can just see someone coming up with a new wave category, yeah, the hair.
    In some ways, I don't stand a chance.

    So far, three videos in, and no... uh... not challengers, but... uh... co-participants.
    Yeah, that's right, no-one else has done anything.

    Maybe I am the undisputed, most exciting general rock guitarist, here at Magle.dk.

    I had to stop and gather myself.....
    but I have to admit, I'm feeling the kind of feelings only the top general rock guitarist can feel,
    nothing deep bass about that. You know me, JHC, and with your Zeal things can get... I'm not sure.

    I had a plan, thinking about doing this, probably more serious about it than anyone else, I know.
    And some of the blame can be lain here at this domain, seeing so much lead guitar talk.
    Who's the best, is this guitarist better than that one, an attitude that for me, goes back to the late 60's.
    That's when lead guitar was the most competitive, before synthesizers.

    and... and... JHC, I can only be open and honest. I feel like I've finally found my forum voice.
    If it means seeing myself as a general rock guitarist, when I aspire to be electronic-symphonic,
    yeah, I'm not sure what it means. Obviously, I'm changing, and it is about just recharging,
    no more batteries.

    I can just imagine you sitting there thinking what's with all this and he said he had a plan?
    Oh yeah! I've got an address copied up, yeah, just ready to fire it off at you.
    Here I am, sitting in the dark with this parlour guitar with Ernie Ball 10's on it,
    and I forgot one of the most important general rock guitar things, yeah,
    building your own, oh, or putting on better pickups.

    I'm going to save the historic, just what I can display, and the seeing of Jimi Hendrix,
    with his playing bass at an overnight in downtown Toronto,
    as part of this now time-line, which sounds a lot better than saying a fake resume,
    I can link to online, and say look at my name, look at my name,
    even getting a little general hip-hop wit'it.

    I'm not typing that you have to watch this over nine minute video,
    and JHC has probably seen it.
    It has no strings, just showing how I built it, and towards the end,
    the very loud harmonic comes out.
    There was a similar sound of lower pitch beneath each pickup.
    When I refinished the guitar I could sand it and focus each in the middle, nice.

    Don't tell anyone, JHC, but I give up. Everything.
    I'm changing my last name to Tesla and getting a job in Niagara Falls,
    on the Canadian side, getting paid American too.

    Before I get going on any further, I'd like to clarify.
    If Soren, of TINKICKER, was in the general rock guitarist category,
    I'd just be looking and listening to him like I'm doing now already.
    I've got my own copy of "The Cup of the Lord and the Wine of Demons".
    That makes him a recording artist, another guitarist category entirely.
    I wouldn't want to see him become a general rock guitarist.
    I'd have to use his own CD against him as proof of being a recording artist.

    hey... hey... what can I say, doing The Cup of the Lord and the Wine of Demons,
    when it comes out more like the wind of Demons, and I'm feeling it.
    yeah... once I went flat I got flatulent right away.

    My new tremolo arm design becomes a hanger for Kleenex and small rolls.
    The worst thing about old age for me, is always saying to take your pick,
    only now people are just taking my stuff and running away.
    But that's okay, just doing the general rock guitarist scene blues.
    It's not easy, walking the streets, in 2017, when everyone knows you're classic rock,
    even if I'm on a computer now and logging in to Magle.dk.
    Is paying the bills and loving it my first middle-aged moment?
    I know as soon as that happens, I'll plunge into deep senility,
    and maybe even develop the symptom of fondling womens' breasts,
    or get assisted baths, sump'in like that.

    John see if you can play this YT video it is interesting to see how the bass line is used.
    I think this is basic chord structure as far as the bass is concerned, nothing complicated or difficult would you agree?

    Play Misty 4 U #2

    This looks like a very interesting addition, or, extrapolation, of this thread,
    and your bass theme is very timely, however... I have to proceed... the excitement over-rides any need.
    I'm using a function I never used before on You Tube, trying to embed.
    I have to see how that looks, and, my newest Misty video is just about playing all six strings,
    while moving a bass line along in 4/4 time.
    I'm also showing a new chord I came up with for the ending of the verse in Misty,
    with another new chord, that making this audio-video today inspired, to lead into it.
    For me, it's the traditional turn-around that makes it sound like an oldie.
    And I have to leave myself room in the arrangement, with electronic effects,
    to be not only Misty misty, but getting some Niagara Falls mist into it too.
    That's the misty I'm used to seeing, and hearing the most,
    getting it all over me, and really getting wet with it, all the time, over and over again,
    season to season, even hibernating wit'it, getting year to year, annual to bi-annual,
    being in the middle of a crowd of everyone from oriental bus tours to what's left of Americans.

    And in honour of the nature of the spirit of the Danish musical soul,
    I dug up an unclaimed body of an American soldier, along the Niagara Parkway,
    where there are Ontario Provincial plaques and memorials for unmarked 1812 graves.
    I looked around a marshy area, hoping to find one that looks like a bog person,
    for a CD cover, if I ever get to make one.

    Nope. Nothing I can do works out as embedding.
    Now I'll listen to the above video and see what song JHC is going on about.
    I'll mention first, hearing Misty by Hammond B3 solo artists the most.

    Yeah! As a general rock guitarist, I can't yell turn it up loud any more,
    because I'm not in the room with a band and want to hear it louder,
    I'm not standing around between sets yelling at the DJ or juke box handler,
    and, I didn't come out loud and proud for the new millennium,
    even if one of my verbal 65th birthday presents to myself was saying,
    "Don't be shy", yeah, living out loud a little more, an'at could'be'bout the wearing of tartans.
    Now I gotta type "Watch it on full-screen!" I can't get it upper case font, not that excited.

    There is a very interesting concept here, for general rock guitarists,
    even if they are just talking about playing bass.
    And'at's from someone who didn't buy a guitar with a seventh string bass.

    These men are saying that if you actually play the bass line,
    the bass and playing it on your instrument, actually teaches you how to play.
    And then he shows the sheet music that has all the bass notes written on it,
    something I see in movies, and in book stores, but not on any stands around here.
    There aren't even any more bongos on stands around here. No, there never was.
    They got played outside a lot.

    Harpsichord? These dry guys really know how to twinkle before they tinkle.
    Yes, this is far too complicated, and antique-retro, paper-work, I'm happy to listen.
    Now they're joking around about being spontaneous being better than rehearsing.
    That's nuts. General rock guitarists, and general musicians in general,
    have to rehearse.
    That's how you find out if the electronics and effects work in the room.
    Now they're going for baroque. Desperate, needy attention grabbers!
    There's a reason they call that chamber music, and it's about flushing it away,
    before you get caught wit'it.

    When I'm in the video, saying I'm not getting frilly with it,
    and twiddle a finger, to show how I could, that's a specific You Tube reference.
    This is a new, general guitar behavior for the new millennium.
    I don't have past recordings to reference, as either having a lack of new material,
    paying tribute to myself, or recycling some old royalties.
    So I'm doing a You Tube tribute, about all those string twingers and harmonic poppers.
    And when I say poppers, the first poppers I ever came across were Village People poppers.
    That's the gas in capsules you break under the nose of your impending lover,
    so his body tremors enhance your, uh, experience.
    When audience members threw capsules that could start to cover the stage,
    dancing around on top of them and breaking them clouded up everyone.

    It wasn't always easy, being a general rock guitarist in the disco era.

    sometimes... when you got caught up... up there... your after-gas burners burning...
    a lead guitarist could say a groupies' action is like eating some "clam-clouder",
    not just getting sticky with it, but really getting stuck.
    That happened to me a lot... every night... and behind the truck.
    A general rock guitarist has to type that about himself, because no-one else's wood.

    dun'wit DAT electronica, oh no, your next request is country and it's the owners' wife,
    yeah, good thing she's too wasted to want to try and sing again, jus'dancin'up front.
    This is an important part of being a general rock guitarist, filling in, especially for country.
    Broken arms from flipping tractors, four-wheelin', fist-fishing for seventy pound muskellenge,
    filling in for a country band is general rock guitar activity, that's for sure.
    And joining a family country band onstage for a gig, when they think they need a pro onstage,
    is another big part of being a general rock guitarist, especially along Lake Erie.
    Of course, along Lake Erie, just wearing a beaded vest you made yourself,
    can get you a Mohawk gig, in bars or on the rez.
    They just might sit there watching me with big smiles on their faces,
    while they wave hello, waving their way through American customs at the Peace Bridge,
    when I can't follow them there, with or without my guitar.
    yeah... they know the best songs.

    This is another example of playing a six-string barre chord, and, to be modern general rock guitar,
    I'll type "messing with it", instead of using variations to add interest to existing outer sounds,
    or working a chord to add interest when someone is singing, also using two and three note harmony riffs.
    I should have used a pick for this, but I wanted to get more tone out of the guitar,
    taking off the anodized copper strings and putting on Ernie Ball 10s, now too old.

    The personal, if not primal, relationship we have with country, what is for the nuclear family, farmland,
    is more than just getting some food to eat, without having to grow any or slaughter other mammals, birds and fish.
    Even the graphic arts component of those industries is now too tough for me, an old sign-painter.
    yeah... don't eat anything where you know its' name... charnel houses... a vision you don't want to see,
    skinned horse parts, floating in a pond of blood, bones sticking up around the edge like evil arms reaching up,
    an island of parts, all red, all blood, that's all you see, everything is red, light red, dark red, everything blood red.

    That's why I'm adding some never-before dark bass to an A major chord,
    while I'm tapping the top of the guitar for a beat, just another thing that's oh so easy to do,
    using two and three note harmony leads, and side-string single, double and triple harmony bends,
    while holding all six strings down like I'm phasing away on waves of panning stereo feedback...
    Don't be angry at me just because I'm playing a way like Jimi Hendrix.
    I know you never expected to see the first rays of the new rising sun,
    coming at you from behind Are You Experienced.
    I'm only typing that, because I don't have any proper management advice.

    A manager would have shut off the recorder until I got a pick.
    He'd be saying, you can't be Little Picky Pickasso without a pick.
    And you never finger-picked, even though you never had a pick.
    I know I've got all day to take my pick.
    I'm confident about that. 77 tortoise shell celluloid, Fender Heavy Thick,
    from the seventies, nice, only because of Ryan at Thorold Music.
    Ever since 1970, I've had to order a gross from Fender in California.
    As pickers get pickier, pickers' picks never change.

    I've been spending too much time making excuses about not having the real strings,
    so I bought this set, saying anodized copper before, knowing what that means,
    but now seeing the phosphor bronze, that Ryan said darkens after being installed.
    That means no more acoustic guitar, unless I'm trading it for a phase shifter.

    Is John Watt the most exciting general rock guitarist in Magle.dk? I think so.-phosphor-bronze-jpg
