Guitars and Music

As a wise man once said:
Information is not knowledge
Knowledge is not wisdom
Wisdom is not truth
Truth is not beauty
Beauty is not love
Love is not music
Music is the BEST

Guitar Tablature Files

A collection of my guitar transcriptions (tabs and chords). If you're into The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Frank Zappa, Neil Young, The Police, Led Zeppelin, XTC... then you should find something of interest in my collection of guitar tab files. I've moved all my Steely Dan guitar tablature to a separate page, so Steely Dan fans should follow this link for Steely Dan tabs and chords.

Music and Guitar FAQs:

Basic Guitar Techniques

"How do I play a hammer-on or a bend?"

If you're a beginner on the guitar, and are not sure how to play things like bends, hammer-ons, pull-offs and vibrato, this page gives an explanation of these fretting hand techniques. It also has a few practise exercises for you to try out.

Guitar Chord Dictionary

"What chord shapes are there for a G#m7?"

Problems finding a good chord dictionary or a decent on-line reference for guitar chords? Having trouble finding shapes for the more unusual chords? My big list of guitar chords lists over 42,000 guitar chord shapes and should include just about any chord you might be interested in.

These guys are good!

A list of some of the artists and groups that are my personal favourites, and a few words on why I think they are so damn good! This section is a work in progress ...

Musical links

A few links to other web sites with interesting guitar- and music-related material.

Oh, I nearly forgot, the wise man (remember, top of the page?) went on to say that:

Wisdom is the domain of the Wis
... which is extinct.
Beauty is a French phonetic corruption
of a short, cloth neck ornament, currently in resurgence

..... yes, quite.
