I've started trying to play finger picking/classical for myself but might wimp out and get lessons at some point. It's hard!

Kewl. I'll have that stuff nailed by lunchtime the morra.


I can play it with my teeth.

I'm pretty ropey at fingerstyle, but I found this to be a fairly straightforward start.

There used to be a great "How to play" video for it on Youtube, but I cannae find it. There's loads of shit amateur covers of it, though.

Code:
  Dm              Cadd9           Am              F
e|-----1-------1--------------------------------------------------|
B|---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---1---1---1---1---1---1---1---1---1|

A|----------------3---3---3---3---0---0---0---0-------------------|

Media player and others allow you to slow stuff down a bit. They use pitchshifting to bring it back to normal pitch but the algorithms aren't great (still they're fairly impressive to run in real time as well as they do), but you can go to 90% speed quite well. Makes learning something difficult that little bit easier.

How do you pronounce Capo anyway? The Lizard King in that Julia clip called it a Cape-Oh, but I've always called it a Cap-Oh. Which one's right?

I've heard people both but Cap-oh is far more common. 4x12 comes as both four-be-twelve and four-by-twelve and the people who say be seem more likely to say cape-oh.

I say four bay twelve but with the bay being kind of aspirated and sounding a bit neutral. That's they I say the word "by" though, like if I said a song was by someone or that I was driving to Dublin by Belfast.

I'd kill to be able to finger pick á la Chet Atkins and Mark Knopfler. I'd really have no issue with topping someone if it gave me their powers.

I've never heard anyone say Cap-oh in my life.

and four-be-twelve ??? euch, what a horrible corruption.

edit: or do you mean like four-beh-twelve? that would just be like a more country way of saying it.

I think Cape-oh is more of a US thing, and Cap-oh a UK thing. Four-be-twelve is purely an accent and or sentence flowing thing where by sounds like be, don't be so offended :/

Had never heard it until just now.

Fucking amazing. Is the rest of his stuff this good?

EDIT: WTF!?!?! I have this album and have never listened to it. Am now and feeling stupid for letting it collect dust.

As far as Capo....

It is Cape - Oh.


For 4x12 I rarely reference the actual cabinet, jut the douche who thinks he needs a 4x12. so correct useage would be.

Oh great, look at the wanker who likes to hear himself too much.....

That would be the proper way to address a 4x12.

4x12s ftw! If nothing else they put the head at the right height to adjust it without having to stoop and bugger about.
