• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • There seems to be a problem with some alerts not being emailed to members. I have told the hosts and they are investigating.
  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting


    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

Whiter Shade of Pale is one of mine as well, they did a long version which i have on my player. I remember they played in the local college and we sat outside and listened only a few could get in because was such a small venue was great though.

Thought of you as like me you like playing your guitar

My brother put me on to this great on line app called Fretastic and its free too. You need to register to get the full benefit such as the free backing tracks. All the different types of Scales to practice with .

The youtube Clip that my brother sent me
The chap on the video is very genuine and has nothing to do with Fretastic other than he found it useful.

The Backing Tracks are really good and of course you can see the Scale underneath

Enjoy having a Noodle session with the various Backing Tracks and Scales

Hi Chesham Chesham I learnt a fair amount of music theory and how scales are formed, the thing that help me alot was the circle of fifths i found out how one can switch from scale to scale and back again if need be, also i learnt chromatics and whole tones, and for outside effects the diminished and augmented scale. I dont noddle much but did learn load of licks and solos when i first started plus loads of chords.

I try now to make my own songs up i use my ears alot and just string various peices together that seem to sound right and hope some folks may like them.

That is good though that video as he says dont just play the scales make licks and songs from them, otherwise your playing can sound like scales only maybe. Good Luck!! with your playing btw.

Some good Programs on BNC Radio Six (Guitar Greats) that you might like

So far I have listened to BBKING, Scotty Moore and BBKING

Listening to the BBKING Program I was surprised to hear him say that he was a rubbish Chord player .

Hi Chesham Chesham I have loads of music stored getting on for 2000 different bands i love listening to prog rock some of those old bands were really great.

I get loads off utube, and have amazon hd also some good stuff on their as well, yes some players have a knack of getting a good tune even with playing a little sloppy. one can know loads of chords but some times a few moved around the neck can sound really cool.

But Thanks!! for the above is nice to know.

There are some very good documentaries on Radio Six. I usually download them and listen on my Iphone when I am on my morning walk along the river. There is a good series called The First Time, with various people from Music Artists to record producers. Tom Robinson also has some good guests that he interviews

This looks a good series and will download it
