1. Transcriptions - This is probably mostly for Dennis, but anyone can jump in: How do you decide where on the fretboard you place certain notes. I'm working on transcriptions for "I'll See You In My Dreams" and "Dark Eyes - 1947." I'm fine with the TAB as it is, but looking at the TABs got me wondering how these decisions are made. In bluegrass, it's all pretty straight forward...
2. Right Hand: I play a solid B&S guitar and I notice that even when I play what I think (or at least hope) is with the right rest stroke technique, I get a fair amount of reverb (or sustain) out of the guitar (on lead). Is there any kind of right hand damping that people employ, is it the guitar, is it me (probably)? The guitar's tone seems right, but it definately is not as dry as the tone that I think of as GJ tone. On the other hand, I'm not out front of the guitar, so I can't really hear what it sounds like to someone else. Just curious if anyone else has this experience, and what, if anything, to do to get a drier sound.
Reject the null hypothesis.
