It is beyond ridiculous that chord pro still doesn't work 2 1/2 years after it went down. It's not an insult, it's a fact. REEE Dik You Lusss.

Go build your own site that does it and let us know.

I'm just getting better from an illness that took my voice.  sad

I've been monitoring but not participating or playing much.   Have nasty cravings at present. 

So sorry for your loss KIR.

Power issue where you were playing and the pedals weren't getting enough juice? I always bring batteries in case I'm playing somewhere with bad power

I had to think about this for a minute, I guess my top four if I had to play off the cuff in hurry would be copper head road, wish you were here, pirate looks at forty and oil field trash. I can play those even when I am hammered

I almost have Pirate Looks at 40 memorized!

I had always thought that the first note/chord of a song was also its key. Apparently that's not true, is it?

"Opie"

In my experience it's not nearly as reliable as the last chord. We might speculate this is because songs are all about tension and resolution. The process of resolving frequently means you wind up on the tonic or a substitute for the tonic (ie the relative minor) to make the song feel finished.

Some examples of not starting songs on the tonic:
Little Red Corvette starts on the IV (I think).
Blueberry Hill starts on the IV
All my loving starts on the ii or vi if I remember correctly

Thank you for that link. I've been researching but hadn't found a well-reviewed one under $400-$500. I'm going to pick this up today.

Bill....most certainly a vibrato unit turned full up by the sound of it!

BGD, they would need to be very small, the Venues I mean lol.  Someone once said "you can always turn down for smaller places but you can't turn up for the bigger ones". I like my sound to be right wherever I play and if I can't get it right I get very tetchy. The wife asks how did it go and I say crap and she says did they ask you back and I say yes then she says it can't have been that bad then?

This is me....if you are happy that's all that counts. Will you record any shows?

I will and they'll wind up here. 

Sounds like I should invest in a small system.

I have bad dreams sometimes that I come out from behind the drums to play bass on "Stand By Me", and the lead guitar says "Stand By Me in C".

Huh? Did he just say "in C"? But I'm just a drummer and only know it in A Major!!!"

Besides learning the Pentatonic scale, is there another way to  fool-proofly figure out the key to a song and  then transfer it to the fretboard?

Lots of the time you can look at the very last chord at the end of a song and that's the tonic. (Doesn't always work but a good start!)

If you want to move songs to a new key, consider a capo. I use them a ton.  Actually have an extra. If you want, email me your address and I'll mail it out.

I generally delete all the in line chords.  I put the changes at the top of the chart by themselves in roman numbers and then put the lyrics together below them.  This allows me to transpose on the fly for nights my voice sucks, which is almost always.

I was going to use an in-line EQ on the guitar, EQ the amp for my voice and then make any mods necessary for the guitar.

And this would only be for very small venues...small coffee shops, tiny bars, etc.

Hey all.

I'm preparing to start gigging again and I've been thinking a ton about the kind of small PA I'll need.

While I was setting up my keyboard in our new music room over the weekend, I took a gander at the small Roland amp I use (https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/KC60) and noticed that it has 3 inputs (plenty for my purposes), independent volume controls and a master control.

Do you guys think I'll be ok plugging a mic and my acoustic into this little sucker for smaller gigs? Any downsides other than the obvious (no monitors, no FX loop, etc.)

Thanks in advance for your input!

Mods if this belongs elsewhere feel free to move it.

OMG, as the kids say.

I am so stupid. I was trying to click above the track (where the time markers are), not in the track itself. Thank you. Jeez I feel stupid.

Thank you again.

Ugh Chordie.  Lost my voice to a bug last week and it's just coming back.  Hope to record these tonight.

did you install driver software with the keyboard or just plug it in? I would start by surfing the interwebz for software for the keyboard that matches your operating system.

Does it need to be a Chris Cornell original, or  can it be a cover he did in the same style he performed it?

Here's why I ask:
