    I think he is just deadening the E with his thumb. Looks like some kind of C chord. Maybe a 9th or 13th or a sus.

    Now that I see a bigger picture than on my phone it's maybe a C sharp something or other. Still sounds like shit when I played it.

    I can't tell if he is 2nd fret b 2nd fret g but that is what it looks like, not sure it could be much else, certainly doesn't look to be 1st anything

    Anybody play the kazoo? Anybody other than @stevescookin I mean.
    I was in Guitar Cetet today because something I ordered from Musicians Friend was delivered as the wrong item.
    Right by the front there was a big box of plastic kazoos for $1,95. I bought 5 of them on impulse. Then I got to thinking: Is a kazoo a real musical instrument or just a noisemaker. So I searched fo kazoo music. This guy is pretty good. Kind of sounds like a saxophone.

    Anybody write songs? How do you go about it? I wanted to play at some of those open mike things but it turns out tbe ones around here are all oriented arount original material. After a few months I came up with 3 that are pretty good and played them at a cup of places.

    I can't just sit down and say I'm going to write a song today. If I did it would suck.
    Sometimes an idea for a song title or hook line will just come to me and I'll try to come up with good lyrics to go with it and then come up with a chord progression that fits it.

    My brother is into the acoustic singer songwriter thing and I asked him how he came up with the music for his songs. He said he comes up eith the music first and then writes the lyrics for it.

    Seems ass backwards to me but I suppose there are lots of ways to do it.

    Yet I think that is how most of them do it.

    Probably starts with a line that they come up with or hear. Then the music and lyrics are built around it.

    I've tried it and quickly figured out it is far from my wheelhouse so I dont.

    I know who doesn't based on really really bad poetry and the other with really really bad humor. I probably could however.
