    Yeah, I've experienced that. They look at you funny when you say it's not the best key for you, but they look at you even funnier if you say, "know anything in Bb?"ROFL

    Using a capo on an acoustic guitar is NOT a shortcut. That is a misconception.

    I only "play" rhythm guitar. What is a capo really for?

    your friend know nothing about usic

    It is awesome combionation

    My friend and I once played "concierto de aranjuez" -he is great fan of flamenco and spanish traditional guitar music

    and it was awesome

    I have written also arrngement for "recuerdos do alhambra" -it is magnificent it has vibrato all though, marvelous piece.

    the only problem is I do not play with him anymore, because we had an argument

    Try playing a five-string banjo (tuned in open G, retunable to C, D or D minor) in a different key without a capo, then report in. :noway:

    BTW, it is much easier to nail Jell-o to a tree than to keep a banjo in tune. :shock:

    Trumpet and guitar can sound very good together, as long as the rhythm is done with the guitar and the music by the trumpet!! :evil:

    No offense to your friend, but you can't learn anything "right", reguardless of wether you have the time or not. The purpose is to learn the fundamentals of the instrument, THEN perfect the talent. When I started out on the trumpet, I didn't learn how to double and triple tounge perfectly or articulate just right or play in tune 24/7. I can almost guarentee you that you'll never have a "perfect performance". Even if the mistake is just playing one note in a entire song staccato instead of accented, it's not perfect. You're a human, so dont ever expect to be perfect. You can only do your very best, and if you do that, then your endeavors will work out. Tell your friend to stop procrastinating and learn guitar, cause it's awesome:thumbsup:

    So, I said, Well, when I'm really decent, we could play some stuff together, and he says .. "Guitar and trumpet?? That'd be like ice cream and eggs". I said "some ice cream has eggs in it" and he said "But can you imagine a fried egg on top of your ice cream?"

    If you are waiting till you are both perfect - such a duet will NEVER happen, it's a non event. Build a bridge .... ROFL
