Greg Booth

time signature question

Hey friends - question for someone with a better understanding of written music than I have (I can write tab and check it with my software's "score checker," and that's about the extent of it).

I'm finally tabbing out "Here this Morning" so I have it available for ResoSummit. I'm running into an issue with measures. I think of the tune as being in 4/4, but when I write it out, a lot of the held notes anticipate the beat and fall right before a new measure should occur. My software doesn't facilitate showing that notes are held into the next measure, and it seems awkward and not quite accurate to put a "dividing line" in those spots. So what I'm looking at now is accurate tab, except that the measures all have twice as many notes as they should.

Finn Pickin

The other day, I was playing in the living room. My son Finn who is 21 months old grabbed a spare finger pick (sure it is losely hanging on this finger), grabbed his toy banjo and started trying to imitate me. Also last night at band practice, Finn grabbed his new harmonica and walked in the room and started blowing on it joining the fun with giggles between each blow on the harp. He also loves to count songs to start - "one, two, one two free."
