The easiest way to identify Eddie Van Halen’s guitars is to associate them with the corresponding Van Halen Album.Eddie is not only famous for his unique talents, experimental techniques, or his rehab career, but for the unmistakable way he makes his guitars.

Eddie has been modifying and sometimes destroying guitars from the very beginning of his career.
His guitars are as famous as his music. Not only did Eddie define an era of rock music, he also defined an era of rock guitars.

You can’t listen to Eruption without seeing him play that Black & White striped guitar. Read more >> http://www.celebrityrockstarguitars.com/rock/vanhalen.htm

I watched the Steve Cropper on the Ronnie Wood Show this afternoon, talking about how he wrote the parts for hits including Wilson Pickett's 'Midnight Hour' and Eddie Floyd's 'Knock On Wood'.

To write the intro for 'Midnight Hour' he simply followed the dots on the fretboard; that is, he played descending major bar chords on the 7th, 5th, 3rd frets etc. He had trouble coming up with an intro for 'Knock On Wood' so he just followed the dots in the opposite direction. Often the simplest ideas are the best!

Working on Charlie Christian's solo from 'Six Appeal'. This is a short, very simple yet highly effective solo in Fm; a great example of Charlie's approach to minor keys. I was unable to find a chord chart for this so I made my own with Biab.
I also generated a backing track mp3: http://liamalexander.com/music/jam_tracks/tracks/six_appeal_backing_track.mp3 (165 bpm)

This version is slower (120 bpm): http://liamalexander.com/music/jam_tracks/tracks/six_appeal_backing_slow.mp3

Software Piracy
Copyright is a form of intellectual property protection for a variety of literary and artistic endeavours. Everyone who has used the internet has at one time or another copied material illegally.

Copyright is a form of intellectual property protection for a variety of literary and artistic endeavours. Everyone who has used the internet has at one time or another copied material illegally. This is due to the popular misconception, that once material is posted to the internet it can be freely copied: this not the case. Unless the author of the material has stated that is available for public use, then permission has to be obtained from the author for the material to be used.
File sharing sites, is another issue that concerning copyright laws. These sites/programs allow people to share material over the internet, this allows for copyrighted material to be shared and copied form one person to another. Some people believe this is okay as there is no transaction of money for the material: this is not true. File sharing is one of the biggest problems concerning copyright laws on the internet as there is no way to monitor all the information being shared between people and block and copyrighted material from being sent.
Now days because it is so easy to share copyrighted material over the internet and it is so frequently done many people do not see it as a crime that affects the authors finically. Although many people would not steal a cd from a store, download free music from the internet is socially acceptable on the internet.
The reason why people copy and break copyright laws is because they don’t want to pay for it. What most people don’t think about while there waiting happily as their download finishes, is that they are part of a mass group that is stealing from the author. This author has probably spent many hours of work developing a program hoping that in the end he can share with all of us and maybe get paid, to earn a living so he can continue provide us with software we want and need. But all those people who pirate software and wish for everything on the internet to be free or cheaper, are really just saying , we value what you have created but could you just do it for free? Would you do your job for free? Or cheaper? Highly unlikely, but that being said people that claim authors aren’t protecting their material enough, well all that can be said about that is, if people really want something enough, they’ll do anything, even if it might cost them jail time or a $50,000 fine.

Dred Scott Emancipated by His Original Owners (1857)
Scott was an American slave who sued unsuccessfully for his freedom in the famous Dred Scott v. Sandford case. Though he argued that having lived in states and territories where slavery was illegal rendered him a free man, the Supreme Court ruled against him in 1857, finding that no person of African ancestry could claim citizenship in the US or bring suit in federal court. Shortly thereafter, Scott was returned to his original owners and emancipated. What did he do after he was freed? Discuss

The Latest on weather: Third body pulled from Blanco River

A highway entrance is covered in water and debris after flood waters overran the banks of the bayou in downtown Houston, Tuesday, May 26, 2015. Floodwaters kept rising Tuesday across much of Texas as storms dumped almost another foot of rain on the Houston area, stranding hundreds of motorists and inundating the famously congested highways that serve the nation’s fourth-largest city.
