Re: Bert Weedon's Play In A Day

OP says it kept his playing in the doldrums for 40 years.
I would have thought that in 40 years of practise they'd have learned a few tricks and cheats along the way, and that the book is nothing but a guide, not a rule book.

Re: Bert Weedon's Play In A Day

It seems to me that we could make too much about where a thumb goes. If it suits great, if it gets in the way then cut it off. Quite where the digits of my left hand go, as I murder The Wind Cries Mary on a Strat, a tango on acoustic or simple doodling bluesywoos on a classical guitar my thumb find...

Re: Bert Weedon's Play In A Day

I do think it's a touch churlish to blame one's guitar playing deficiencies on Bert Weedon & his books.
I'm entirely to blame for my own lack of playing skills, and if the OP was honest they'd accept the mantle of responsibility for one's own actions and inactions too.

Re: Ripping problem

That's good to hear, Simon :)
Been using dBPoweramp for quite a few years now, and it just ripped the occasional copy protected disc I fed it with no fuss.

Re: Ripping problem

Sounds like copy protection of some sort.
Have you tried dBPoweramp?
Might be worth a trial if you haven't tried it already.
