  1. Error: OFP Or as my mother-in-law told her husband once: I'm sorry, I was wrong, I forgive you. (he didn't catch it for a while)
  2. Duolingo is good. However, like any language learning (including ASL, semaphore, etc) it must be incorporated with interaction with speakers of said language to retain it. Also, Duolingo does not impart idiomatic phrases.
  3. Lo siento, no hablo espaƱol.. Mi ingles no es bueno tampoco.
  4. This is as close to scripted as we got. Daniel had come up with a 4 measure lick he didn't where to use until he played "This Little Light of Mine". We had a quick conference on how and where to use it and I still didn't get it right. But it was fun.
  5. Musician4God1611 really did like Physical Science, probably the only student we had who wasn't ready to commit Seppuku (hara-kiri) over it.
  6. FWIW, here goes...
  7. He is light handed and I have a more aggressive attack so I opted not to use a pick lest I overpower him even though he is using a pick. After church I'll see if I can get a couple up.
  8. One of my sons pulled out a guitar so I grabbed mine. We just goofed off some and played a few songs. He never tells me what he's starting or how long he plans to go with it (# of times through). It got videoed and reduced to several short clips. I entertained the idea of posting some but only if there's any interest (if so, remember you can scream NO MORE!!! at any time). All songs were impromptu and unrehearsed, they are complete with flaws, warts, cracks and other blemishes).
  9. When I was 12 I asked my Dad to teach me guitar, he didn't even give me a chance. He just said "It's hard on your fingers, you won't stay with it". After I was grown and had kids, I asked him again. He said, "I don't know that much and wouldn't be able to teach it." At age 30 (not knowing anyone that played) I sought to teach myself with a couple of books (pre-internet). I manage to accompany my wife when she sings. Good enough for me.
  10. Using a plectrum (flat pick) as opposed to a thumb pick (with or without finger picks)
  11. We have 22 here this year. a whole suckling pig went in the smoker yesterday, I saw a turkey being prepped @ 5 this morning. Peanut butter bon bons and pumpkin pies were finished @ 1 this morning. There will be sweet potato casserole, dressing and gravy, potato salad, corn, roast beef, brownies (with walnuts in them), field peas, and I forget what else they said. All but one of our 5 children and 10 of our 11 grandchildren (plus 2 to be born in 2017) are here plus a young man (just turned 16) that we'll have here for a couple of years. Had homemade seafood gumbo for breakfast (leftovers from supper last night).
  12. I use either. Fingers or flat pick. Since I don't have fingernails (kids, let this be a lesson to you -- stop biting your fingernails!!) there is a MAJOR tonal difference between my fingerstyle and flatpicking.
  13. Large triangular flat picks were my Dad's preference. Several companies made them, they are still available but under less names (I think you can find them under the Fender brand). I have his 1967 Silvertone guitar and it had 3 of those picks in the case.
  14. Yep, sometimes I re-read ya'll's posts from years ago and wonder, " what were they doing?" This should be a post that makes me shake my head later.
