Stanley Drutowski's insight:

This is a brilliant idea!

 

As someone who does not know how to read music I have been living and dieing by tabs and finger reading youtube videos.  If this takes off those things could be a thing of the past.

Nick Bonko's curator insight, December 21, 2012 10:45 AM

Have you ever had the issue of constantly finding bad TAB or watching a blurry video of a guitarist playing a song you want to learn...

 

Well enough is enough my friends!  

 

Soundslice, created by YouTube, brings both video and TAB together in an amazing guitar experience. 

 

Take a look at the video and article link. 

 

Enjoy!

Your guitar is always out of tune!  Shocking right?!  This is a cool little article by Seymore Duncan talking about intonation, frets and necks.  I have been seeing a lot of different tuning devices so I thought this was interesting when it talked just about tuning in general, hope you enjoy.
