    I like my humour to come with a bite, and I have thick skin, LOL, so I think it's ok. Thanks for the heads up.

    Nice to be welcomed from all over the world. BTW, I am in Malaysia.

    This is going to sound silly, but I just used the Boss looper and in the process discovered/stumbled across some fundamentals of music theory in the middle of noodling some bass and leads to lay on top of the rhythm.

    So, this is what they mean when they say the key is the foundation of the song, and the chords are the foundation of the lead. It did not click before until last night. I sound like a kid learning to ride a bike and in the process discovered for himself the principles of the gyroscope... Why did I wait so long to do this.... I say man.... this is so fun.

    Not silly at all! In fact there are several topics going on right now dealing with this kind of stuff!
