Patreon, a new idea in artistic expression

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

I am usually skeptical when officially joining any group, especially those that only exist in the world of the internet. Despite that I was turned on to a new website by my web developer, Jeff Cohan at Nsiteful

I couldn’t find a downside to joining, but check it out for yourself. To view content it is free and does not require joining. Supporting artists, as well as sharing one;s own art does require joining, but no necessary costs. It is similar to a site like kickstarter, but for the individual. More like a Donate button on a website but providing much more than that. The site also compiles content in an organized ways similar to that you tube channels. Check out the link below to see what you think?

One thing I really like is that encourages the sharing of great content for free and reasonable prices, instead of proprietary ownership of content to the highest bidder. The consumers get to decide what content is worth not the owners.

Spice up bland guitar chords, and learn to read chord charts

Saturday, June 8th, 2013

In the video below two different concepts are touched on. The first concept is how to give a simple G chord a more powerful and unique sound without making it any more difficult to play. I learned this way to play by listening to Tony Rice, and later at an Orinn Star workshop I found very helpful for my playing.

The second concept exemplified are what are called chord inversions. Often they are listed with a (/) on chord charts.

The (/) is a more concise way to write and read chord charts once you understand how they work. Also using theoretical names like first and second inversion make the chord seem much more difficult than it it. C/G was shown and heard in the video above. What C/G tells us is that we are playing a C chord, a simple C chord would do just fine with a G note as the lowest, or Bass note in the chord.
To cover a particular song the, “right way.” or to compose a guitar piece with some added sonic depth the G tells us that a G note is played/strummed over the C chord. Keep in mind in this model ({)/(}) or C/G the first letter is the chord being played. The second letter after the slash is the note in this Base a…G note. The G note is played as the bass note within the chord, it can also be strummed within the chord again

To go more into the theory, a simple chord like C only has three note C (root), E(third), and G(fifth). Playing the E in the bass (C/E) is called the first inversion. Playing the fifth in the bass is know as the second inversion. These names for inversions carry over to all chords. The second inversion is more common in most guitar styles of playing, it is also easier to play on the fret board. The above example is the video only focus on second inversions, (inversions of chords with the 5th in the bass.) Below is some tab to help.
