  1. I'm trying to learn acoustic guitar. Learning the fingering and movements isn't especially hard, but I'm having trouble picking up reading music. Anyone have advice on a good learn-to-read music book or technique?
  2. i.....play....guitar..... Ha, don't worry, I'm tied down neway.
  3. Plant wasn't dead when Bonzo died, if you don't remember...
  4. This has always been an issue I've struggled with. How can you compare art? Most people look at art as the artist expressing him or herself, so how do you evaluate that? How is one expression better than another? Is one better because it's more pleasing, it displays more talent, it is more intricate, it is innovative? I don't know, not sure if anyone does. But even without such an evaluation criteria I can say, without regret, that Led Zeppelin is the greatest band ever. I couldn't tell you my criteria piece-by-piece, and I can't really refute the argument that I make above, but I can tell you that I think each individual member of Led Zeppelin rank in the top-10 list of all-times in their respective categories (whatever those may be- Jonesy would be hard to place in one category), and the sum of the parts certainly wasn't disappointing. Sure The Beatles (The Stones being a moderately close 3rd- take your pick of line-ups, though) give Zep a run for their money, and collectively The Beatles may be the greatest band of all-time (though I would disagree), individually they certainly weren't all the musicians that each of the Zep members were. Lennon, McCartney and Harrison are all absolutely amazing musicians, and one or two of them may outrank a Zep, but I can't say that the four of The Beatles individually are more talented than the four of Zep. Of course, it's all opinion anyway...
  5. Plant also included some lyrics influenced directly by his personal life... i.e. his dog, Merle, in the lyric "blue-eyed Merle"
