The French Guitar Cookbook

Post by JD01 » Tue Jul 11, 2017 10:36 am

This arrived in the post today. I'll keep you updated with how I find it. From what I've heaRd, apparently it's great for anyone that has even a passing interest in musical theory.

Is that the one that Glen Fricker was touting a while back? I thought that it looked pretty interesting.

Yeah - that's the one. I was hoping that it would be something interesting to keep my mind occupied during the week when I am away from home. Bit underwhelming so far. All I've found by Page 15 are chords that would be impossible to reach during a song and sound shit anyway.

Sounds like French RnR, (except for Little Bob Story).

Lol. I think they sound nicer if your guitar is out of tune.

Got into the meat of this book now in the 2nd half and it's got all the stuff I hoped it would have explained how i wanted... should help generate some unusual ideas. Whether they'll transfer into my music or just be an academic exercise I don't know though.

I don't think the basics were that well explained though, you might struggle with this book if you didn't already know your modes,

The Crimson? The position markers seem to indicate so.

Yes. Although the mrkers were my idea. They started using these markers as standard after mine was built.

Would appear so :) Christopher who built my guitar seems to do a lot of their design work. Dunno, maybe it was something that they were already looking at as standard, but it did seem to come onto their standard models right after I asked for it. Don't know if any other brands do it, I just thought it would look cool when I was designing it and Chris agreed.
