comment Beginner's question about compound time signatures
but we didn't decide, and it doesn't mean 2+2+2, it's 3+3.

comment Why does this key change work?
@DavidAxtellMooreII - I don't hear any 7th chords until I7. Where do you find the F7 and Eb7 ?

comment Why does this key change work?
@NReilingh - If the song is in Bb, then the chords for the verse are going V-IV-V-IV, giving F to Eb, before coming on to the Bb.Given Bb, Eb and F, the key will be Bb, surely? (Even if the version I heard was C)

comment Improving Timing While Improvising A Solo
true, it will improve timing, but not necessarily make a better musician. We need a lot more than playing to ticks. Playing in time is important, but so is interaction.Last night, I played a gig with a vocalist who missed beats several times. The whole band reacted, professionally and subtly, and I'm certain that no-one in the audience noticed. So, I wonder, is timing actually so important? Yes, the question is about timing, true.

comment Finger Picking vs. using a Pick on Bass Guitar
Fretless gets the percussive sound from the strings hitting the fingerboard, rather than the metal frets. Never, ever got callouses from playing fingerstyle on bass.Maybe 30+ yrs are not enough! Comprehensive answer, though... +1.
