I am a C# developer and web designer.

I play guitar in Lynchburg (The band, not the city).

I have an unhealthly love of the Telecaster.

I'm a tech-nerd.

comment Changing the strings: one by one, or by taking all strings off at one time?
Good answer this. May I just add, never cut the strings if they are carrying any tension, as this may damage your neck. A twisted neck is easily fixed by a good tech but it's not cheap (good excuse for a refret though...)

That's a really nice answer. It would also tie in nicely with the work place or chain gang song, and of course running or rowing type activities to motivating music.

E:3, A:3, D:5, G:5, is my favourite way to play this power chord :)

It's not a forth if the root is (using the original posted example) considered the C. Isn't G the fifth of C regardless of where they are played?? Every chord can be called multiple names depending on the usage. Like most things in music, context is key.

Also, Bareknuckle pickups are quality.
