Nobody guessed what is missing on this tuner...   alternative tunings.   With that, this tuner probably would be the best available.  Hope they are reading this.

I don't know about cursive writing, but I curse all the time when I write! LOL (couldn't resist that bad joke)

Didn't you use cursive writing in Sweden?

Pub Talk / Suing the rich, what a dumb lawsuit. Keith Urban

I've seen his player guitar kit, but this really cuts the cake.

Lawsuit Over Keith Urban ‘Player’ Guitar Package Dismissed

A Los Angeles judge tossed a lawsuit by a British songwriter who accused Keith Urban of stealing his band’s name — Player — for a guitar lesson package the singer sells on the Home Shopping Network and online, court papers show.

In a trademark violation complaint filed in federal court, Peter Beckett claimed the “American Idol” judge snatched the “Player” name after Beckett’s band performed its 1978 chart-topper “Baby Come Back” on an episode of the daytime soap opera “General Hospital” last year.

Beckett did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

In dismissing the suit, U.S. District Judge Manuel Real wrote this week that the common use of the word “Player” in describing a wide range of goods and services is “indicative of the weakness” of Beckett’s claim.

Urban’s use of the phrase “Player by Keith Urban” dispels any potential confusion with the band Player, so the two uses of the word “are not sufficiently similar,” according to the judge.

In the complaint, Beckett alleged that Urban was being “fraudulent and malicious” in marketing the 50-piece acoustic guitar kit, which includes a signature guitar, instructional DVD series and other items.

Urban’s “use of the trade name and trademark Player … are likely to deceive and will continue to deceive the consuming public,” leading to “irreparable injury” to his band, Beckett claimed.

The plaintiff contended that if an injunction was not granted, “one day consumers may come to believe that ‘Baby Come Back’ was written and performed” by Urban rather than Beckett.

Beckett also argued that the Grammy Award-winning performer needs to link his name to the band Player because “if not for his marriage to Nicole Kidman and if not for his appearance as a judge on the tail end of the now- canceled ‘American Idol,’ defendant Urban’s fame would be limited to country fans for just a few more years.”

A good read. Thanks.

Is it true that schools are no longer teaching cursive writing.  So much faster I feel and looks so much more artistic, too.

I can read scores as long as there are no sharps or flats. Just the key of C is all I know, but I think using the net I can figure out now if there are flats and sharps. There's only 12 notes, right.

It works!

I just tried it, nope out of order.

I don't know if you have already since I'm not yet a premium subscriber, but do you have a course on finger picking.  That would be something I'm interested.

I was surprised that the Gibson Studio comes with a soft gig case.  I found the Studio I want to buy at Ishibashi.com  A new 2014 model for about $720 US bucks.  I thought it was a fairly good buy for the money. Hope they still have when I get my pension soon. 

This is rather good for me.

Don't know what happened to the site, but as I remember it was a good one.

Nice lyrics
Nice feel in the rhythm of the vocals
Nice overall feel of the direction of the way the tune took me away from sipping on my morning brew of you know what   ;D
