Thanks for the explanation Peatle, we've been at home for 2 weeks now, so I took the kids to the local park today (only saw about 10 people in the hour we were there, and we all kept well away from each other). After that we took a drive to the beach and back to give the car a bit of a run, and saw a lot of teddy bears on gates and in windows; I told the kids I'd seen something on Facebook about it (but I don't really _read_ FB, kinda just flick through), so I'm glad I can tell them what it means now smile

And thanks for posting the poem/song lyrics EB!!

Cheers

Sorry for your loss, Joe, it was a good song that I could hear ...

In Perth, we are all instructed (as far as possible) to work from home, to limit exposure. Our company services a large supermarket chain (based in Sydney), and they're doing the same - unfortunately the digital networks and ISP's are slowing down as a result of everyone working from home. Store shelves are empty, un-imposed rations are being administered, every concert has been closed (after a lady went to the WASO concert in a contagious state). https://www.perthnow.com.au/news/public … 881483565z

Sporting events are to go ahead, but with no crowd in the stadiums, I'm guessing until one of the players is diagnosed with it, then they will probably shut down as well. Kids are still attending school, but every event and after school activity for the foreseeable future has been cancelled.

Strange times we're in ...

Cheers

Very disappointing.

Like my sight reading.

I still might use it on stage tomorrow. The action is half as high as it was. I just can't use the first frets on E or A, which only matters in Bb. One song is in Bb, but I'll slide up to grab the Bb and Eb as the sixth fret rather than the first. Intonation at the 12th feet is ok even with the slightly high action.

If the action is still high, try lowering the tuning from EADG to DGCF and play everything two frets higher, or use a capo ...

Yep, maybe it is the change they made for the childrens section ... unsure ...

If you're referring to the fact that the "artist" is unavailable, you'll need to convert the old style

{st:

tags into the newer

{artist:

tags as the Chordpro format has changed the meaning of these two in 2018 or 2019 ....

https://www.chordpro.org/chordpro/Direc … title.html

https://www.chordpro.org/chordpro/Direc … rtist.html

Otherwise, sometimes earlier versions of OnSong will mess up if there are excessive comments starting with the hash sign "#" at the beginning of the song ...

If you could be a bit more specific with your problem, I can give a more specific answer ...

Excellent guitar Richard and lady on vocals good. Across here in NZ on some days we got the smoke from the Ozzy fires drifting through our air. Your fire fighters and also those who came from other countries are heroes in my eyes. Pleased to hear you and your family came through it good.

BTW: couldn't reply to your second reply on YouTube (was it deleted??)

Thanks Peatle - yes, I met up with my old boss just after Christmas, whose daughter is over in NZ with her new bf, and got to see some of the photos from your side of the world of the smoke floating over ... I was just visiting our customers in NSW, wouldn't want to have lived through those fires, apparently they have been the worst ever!!

Nice one Richard, looks like you had a lot of fun.

Thanks, we did! We did a couple of songs, this was the best from the video point of view (cameras cut out halfway through songs, etc), but probably not the best song we did ...

Cheers

cool Richard - looks like a lot of fun.

I only wish I was good enough to play in public as such.

Congrats.

P.S.  Did those fires affect the area you live in ?

Jim

Thanks - it was pretty fun; the fires we had were about 30km north of us, but they can spread pretty quick, we were fortunate to have good weather make it harder for the fires, not like the ones in the east; I had to fly over for work, and when I was flying back, you could see the huge plumes of smoke from the bush - kilometers and kilometers of it.

Here is a quick video I shot from the plane:  https://youtu.be/WnGdJHXnGkY

So...new nut. Wish me luck. It looks simple enough on YouTube.

I changed one on a bass not too long ago - buying it pre-configured made it quite easy, the harder one was the bone one I had to made for the multi-scale acoustic guitar, as it had all sorts of wierd angles ...

Have fun!

Richard

I got off to a poor start by buying a wrong model nut. I'll return it. A different one that is too high and I'll need to sand down to fit has been ordered.

I used a file to get mine down to size, mark where it sits first with a pencil across the fretboard, then put the file down flat and start at the bottom of the nut keeping it as flat as you can; I've heard it's easier if you have a table vice to hold it, and a fancy file with a holding knob on one end, but we make the best of what we have ... measure frequently as you don't want to go too low ... also buy a spare if you think you can't do it ...
