      Thanks.  I'm just starting to sort out how these postings work. Saw your jam group on the hangout today.  Now I've got to go watch the AT ALF special from yesterday.  G

  2. Wow @Marlana H - that was a great little tune, and I agree also with your FW transposition. I really enjoyed that!! You should do more of this....😃
  3. Welcome to TAC from another Texan @Richard L - I'm on the Gulf Coast, a little NW of Houston. Proud that you've become one of us down here!

    +1 to what @Todd T said. Plus, writing it out is a great way to internalize the information!! Nice #smallwin.
  5. Nice small win @Andrew D! That is an impressive achievement for sure. Congratulations!!
  6. Another awesome AT show guys. Loved the segment on Preston Thompson guitars! Here's more math: 150,000 views over 22 AT episodes averages out to about 6,800 views per episode!!!

    I really liked it @Todd T - that progression sounded like it had a lot of movement to it and was interesting. Great job on the singing too - great post!! Enjoyed it.

    Welcome aboard @randy s - you're in the right spot! I've been a member since May-14, and it's a great program and a great community of folks here at TAC.
  9. My thoughts exactly! How are ya @Brian Santos?
  10. Very impressive @Victory! Congratulations on writing a really nice little tune! Your playing and singing here was fantastic, and you should be very pleased with yourself- I truly enjoyed it! 😀💥
  11. Fantastic work on this one @Emma S . This is one of my favorite MJH songs too. Great playing on your part - it’s always a treat to see you play bud!

    Amazing. I was with you - right up until the 2nd sentence in the 1st paragraph....then my head exploded! Once I got all the parts back together, then I was able to read your narrative again - REALLY SLOWLY!!! And, it's starting to make a little sense. Thanks @Emma S for taking the time to provide such a great explanation for the theory behind this tune. It'll take a little more study to get the modes to make sense to me, but I think I see where we're headed here. On a separate but related note, I heard that Malcom Young recently passed. That's a shame - he was a very under-rated rhythm guitar player in my opinion. Must have been pretty cool to play in a band with your brother all those years!
  13. In this live version (where he starts playing about 40 seconds into the video!), Jimmy plays it in the key of G. Verse: G - C - G (1-4-1) C - G - G7 (4-1-1) C - G - Em (4-1-6m) A7 - D (2-5) C - G - C - G - D (4-1-4-1-5) C - G - D - C - G (4-1-5-4-1) Chorus: D - C - G - C - G - D (5-4-1-4-1-5) Em - C - G - D - G (2m-4-1-5-1) Transposed to the Key of A, we might get: Verse: A - D - A D - A - A7 D - A - F#m B7 - E D - A - E - D - A D - A - E - D - A Chorus: E - D - A - D - A - E F#m - D - A - E - A There might be some additional 7th chords in there, but it was tricky for me to hear those and be confident with them.
  14. It's helpful to read this analysis. This is a song I learned to play years ago, but never considered analyzing it under our FW method. I understood the basic chords, and even the flat 7th G chord. I knew that C was the right chord (cuz that's how I learned this tune), but I couldn't get it to "fit" within our FW structure. Like Tony P said, there's always going to be exceptions. I just didn't expect an exception here because I always thought of this tune as rather straightforward. Very cool selection to work with here @Dennis F!
  15. Thanks @Tony P. Love this course!!!
