Re: Technically Complicated Folk

Listen to the albums Trespass and Nursery Cryme by Genesis. Also The incredible string band's The hangman's beautiful daughter and Per un Amico by Premiata Forneria Marconi. The hangman's... is the most folky, Per un Amico is the most complex and the other two are somewhere in between.

Re: What Makes A Good Song (for you)?

One type of song I love is the kind that really tells a story, especially if it's told in the third-person. Songs like "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" by Gordon Lightfoot and "She's Leaving Home" by The Beatles are good examples of this. What I really like is as the artist ...

Stretching your fingers/arms before playing is also good advice. It helps you make bigger stretches and prevents pain from keeping your arm in the same position.

Also, the moonlight sonata is beautiful, what are you on about?
