Hey Jeff,

Are you trained in music theory for piano? If so does that training ever inform your guitar compositions?

i would love to know whos taking things i posted months ago and re-pasting them at will....im impressed...makes me feel important

RE: question for jeff | from jeffJun 25 2004 - 08:02

i simply come up with a random tuning.....no rules apply....and then just start trying things out ....what ever sounds good sounds good. then maybe ill take that tuning and detune a string or two and start from there. i dont recommend this approach unless youve got a few guitars and can have them set up to accomidate these tunings.

hey jeff. i am wondering when you started working principally in alternative tunings (pre-idaho i'm guessing) and maybe who/what inspired you to work that way.

also, how structured does the tuning for a song start out. i mean when you're writing a song on guitar do you start with a certain tuning and work around it(maybe you would have a preconcieved tuning if you started writing the song on a piano), or do you adjust each string here and there to make the chord shifts easier?

i could ask a million music nerd questions but i won't since you probably don't have the time or desire to explain the incredible tonality that you create in your music (i've described your use of harmony as the closest thing to 'what my brain sounds like' not that that helps any of my friends because they don't know idaho).

that's it. my apologies for the length of my entry, but i'm not one to spend time watching message boards - i thought i'd just try to get as much as possible out in one shot.

here's hoping that i may one day experience your brilliance live (when are you coming to edmonton, alberta? ... HA!) or even have someone to enjoy idaho
with (message boards don't count).

blah blah blah

thank you for the music,

jen r
