The video #4 is something I discovered while noodling. It's a movement in 3rds from C to C. Then C to C again and F to F. The second half is in Am, the relative minor. I had a member asked me if I went to Berkeley, I told him no just something I figured out from hours of noodling. By the way, the 3rd video is what I told you about, the pieces from two BOC songs that I named Astroburn. __________________ I came on a Celeron!

The difference is the tonic (root or I). As to your ADE, it's a I-IV-V in A so if you play in C you'd have CFG or in G you'd have GCD. All I-IV-Vs, very common progression. Using the numerals keeps it from being key specific so you want to play I-IV-V in a key then you'd know what chords to play. __________________ I came on a Celeron!

I need to go jam with my old band at the American Legion, one of these days before I get any older! LOL PS Here's a theory lesson for you my friend!! LOL LOL! Gary! OH by the way these guys drive a base player crazy walking on them! __________________

These are audio clips recorded on my computer so the sound quailty was better. As usual, playing 'em instrumentally, I don't sing. https://soundcloud.com/user801632734 __________________ I came on a Celeron!

The base gets drowned out by the drums and others! I'm country! I don't have any favorites I'm a George Jones fan. Most of my favorites have went on to play in the big band up above. LOL!!
