Paul, I was on a job once where a fellow electrician had complained about the loud abnoxiuos radio's (and they were) to no avail, so he went to the temporary panel when no one was around and put 240v to the circuits long enough to cure the problem
I like his approach! Pity that such an "accident" would be harder to arrange here with single-phase services that are just 2-wire 240V. Maybe I should keep it in mind for the next time I'm somewhere with a 3-phase service though! [Linked Image]

I didn't make you mad last time, so:

PS: That's a very complicated chord

electure,

LOL! Yeah, 6'1" and 140 lbs makes for a rather high "aspect ratio"... [Linked Image]

The cord being played there is likely a simple A7 chord with only two fingers depressing. Fret two on the B and D strings for E-A-E-A-C#-E in voicing. The other fingers are just in the "ready" position for active and passing tones and the thumb is muting the bass E string.

sparky,

Oh yes, lots of callouses from both the 12 and the bass, and I can finger-punch *some* KOs, like the recessed KOs in 4x4s...

For the Zappa fans out there I am just curious. What era do you like? He was around for about 25 years and styles changed dramatically. I like the ’88 bands jazz live jazz rework of his old stuff the best. 12 piece band (full horn section) playing extremely complicated pieces flawlessly night after night. They never played the same set twice and Frank would even decide to change the key in the middle of the song without warning. Kept the band on there toes! Anything from the mid 70’s on is great. I never did get into the early Mothers much. Before my time and just too weird.
Favorite drummer: Vinnie Colaiuta . (Terry Bozio a close second)
Favorite guitar player: (other than Frank) Steve Vai
Bass: All great no favorite.
I wasn’t going to post anything on this. For those of you that don’t care I understand but, you asked! [Linked Image]

PS: Other music I like. Almost any classic rock,(Zeppelin, Hendrix etc.) Jazz, (Chick Corea, Dave Wekel, etc) basically anything with talented musicians. (Not many are anymore!)

Mr Kelly,
Looks like an A minor 7th with your thumb held over the low E strings to deaden them, (but I wouldn't know why)
Must be nice to have "bony fingers" that'll wrap all the way 'round the neck [Linked Image]...S
Anybody that's not played a 12 string guitar should give it a try! It'll make you realize how weak your fingers really are!

electure,

The high G with the pinky and the C with the first finger are tones added for color to the base chord. The ring finger is actually depressed here, but the first finger is depressed so that when the ring finger is lifted, the "blues-note" minor third C as opposed to major third C# becomes an interesting passing tone. In other words, the ring finger is on the same string as the first finger, not the string above it as in a Amin7 chord. In fact, the G string is open in this chord. But good eye! Sometimes both are lifted for the 9th tone open B to be heard. The high seventh G can simply be thrown in with the pinky when tempted to do so...

Deadening the low E helps the root note A stand out better, but the thumb can be lifted to throw that lower 5th E in when wanted, and to make a more interesting bass line.
