Hey! Check Out These Cool Links
Believe it or not, something besides fingerstyle guitar exists in the world. I know, sometimes I forget, too.
This is a page of what I think are cool links. They may not all be about how to play the guitar. But they will all have something to benefit the fingerstyle guitarist.
New links will be added as they're discovered. The easiest way way to keep up with what's added is with a RSS subscription.
This info will tell you how to do that.
Check out these Cool Links.
- Bob Brozman wears many different hats. He is a dynamic musician and entertainer who is a formally educated ethnomusicologist. He's also one of the worlds pre-eminent authorities on National resophonic guitars. He appears in concerts and workshops all over the world.
In his travels he's noted the lack of basic musical supplies in some of the locales that he works in. Common everyday items like acoustic guitar and ukelele strings, thumbpicks and fingerpicks, small tuners, sets of tuning GEARS, bone nuts and saddles, bridge pins, and ukuleles.
He is now accepting donations of any of these items. He then ships them, at his own expense, to communities where they're needed.
If you'd like to help with this project, contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The Uncle Bob Project, another project associated with Brozman, shows musicians in the developing world how to build their own low-cost instruments. Click on the sound samples, you'll be amazed at the sound!
- I've started using a transcibing program called Transcribe! It let's me slow down a recording without the pitch of the notes changing. This has been really good for learning fingerstyle songs by ear.
They have it for Windows, Mac, and Linux systems if you want to check it out.
- When I decided to build a website I wasn't sure where to start. After a lot of research I decided to use SiteBuildIt!

It's worth looking into if you've ever thought about starting an online business.
