    Here's a guy's point of view - the black one. For sure. :)

    Right - even folks who just sit in their room and play for themselves belong on this thread. Sounds like you've gone beyond that, sodascouts.

    Re: Lindsey Buckingham

    I don't think Lindsey owns a guitar pick; he does all of that amazing stuff with fingerstyle playing - like Mark Knopfler, another phenomenal guitarist. I really like and respect that style - it's so...

    Re: James Taylor

    Miamisburg - nice area. My aunt lived in Fairborn near Wright-Patt. We'd shoot straight up I 675 to get there, right about where Dayton Mall is in Miamisburg.

    Yes, we saw the Cincinnati show. We...

    Re: James Taylor

    Do you live in Dayton, Chaleymom? Just up the street from here. I know what you mean; concerts aren't cheap - even for the so-called "cheap seats" - and I just don't like to drive all over anymore....

    Re: Neil Young

    My favorite Neil is the solo acoustic version, especially early Neil (like the Massey Hall disc set).

    I would have LOVED to see the reunion tour of JT and Carole King, but they didn't head this way. I have to settle for the DVD, which is awesome. The two of them are a perfect musical match, just like...

    Sure. Van Morrison opened for the Moody Blues at the "acoustically-imperfect" Cincinnati Gardens (where the now defunct Cincinnati Royals NBA team played basketball). Van was not in the best of moods...

    Yes - you ARE a musician. Believe it or not, at one point in his life, Joe was right where YOU are - just starting out. Keep at it. You picked a great inspiration.

    Thanks, Keith. Interesting; I'm in my 60s, you're in your 40's, and my son just turned 28 yesterday - and we all love the Eagles. And at the Cincinnati concert, that "three generation" family had a...

    Thanks, DJ. As far as writing music goes, everyone has a different method. The best way to start if you're an absolute beginner is to put down whatever comes into your head. Write it down. Sounds...

    When I play my gigs, either solo or with a band, we have a saying for when we load out gear and pack it away - "This is what they pay us for; we play for free."

    Playing is fun! To quote David...

    Like the Eagles, JT has only gotten better with age. His music is easygoing and accessible. He does...

    Re: Neil Young

    Neil is primal. That's what makes him so popular. Neil and Crazy Horse are a garage band. Lots of guitarists and bands listen and say, "I can do that!"

    But no one does it quite like Neil...

    James is THE MAN! I rank JT right up there with the Eagles as far as my absolute favorites - Eagles for group, JT for solo performer. When he came to Cincinnati on his first tour in 1970, tickets for...

    +1 there - agree 100%. I don't think Beyonce (or any of those others) is a good role model for a songwriter to emulate. 70+ songs written for her last CD? I don't think so! That's a career for a lot...
