pr0n for guitar players

If you play guitar and know who Richard Thompson is, you’ll probably find his Gear and Tunings Q&A an interesting read. If you don’t play guitar, there’s an assortment of
mp3′s available from his site, both serious and otherwise. His 1000 Years of Popular Music album is a brilliant idea, well worth checking out.

In writing songs, you ought to pull things into a sharper focus, so you draw characters who are larger than life, and you write about experiences that perhaps most people donít have from day to day. People are not really interested in the story of a soccer dad, necessarily. Unless itís the story of a soccer dad who canít take any more and shoots his family. Thereís a ballad. Thereís your contemporary “Tom Dooley.”
