thanks for the affirmation Re: reply to Larry Cooperman about histhoughts about low self esteem
Larry, thanks so much for the kind words. As for major vs. minor chords, I
just pick whatever fits the melody that I hear in my head, whether it's
basic first-position "cowboy chords" or some effed-up mutation chord I
stumbled across and made my own. (I luv it when that happens! God lives in
chords!) I use open strings whenever possible, and I like tight intervals
on the wound strings to add some "growl."
Wound strings move me... I luv the overtones, especially when ya shake the
note a bit to help them bloom. I figger if it sounds cool on an unplugged
electric, it'll really do the job when I plug in.
Yours in My Bloody Valentine,
