Re: What an "Awaken" ripoff!!

I know you know...all that! ;) And not to shy away from an argument ;) so I shall argue that all the Cs on the piano are different notes, because they each have different pitch. What say other musicians? (And perhaps this should be a new thread?) Physics enquiries aside, I guess this interests me f...

Re: Before guitar tab

I used to rely on my ears a lot more. Boy did it take a long time to work stuff out - but the reward was my ears got better at picking things out.

Re: Is the electric guitar essentially dead?

I suppose its a cyclical thing. The electric guitar needs to be refreshed and re-invented on a fairly regualr basis and thankfully in many respects it is. The English band Muse's guitarist is IMO helping expand the sonic possiblities of the guitar at the moment with his MIDI-synth pad guitars and on...

Hi,

I've not had contact from Tiz for years. I was part of the Yes Music Circle but the email I had is dead: progressive.spiral@writeme.com

Sorry I can't help. I know she had some health issues relating to her back which made it difficult for her to work etc.

Good luck.

I've read several less-than-enthusiastic reports of what's been released on this so far, and can't help but wonder whether it's the hope or the disappointment that's harder to live with.
