While I agree my 80+ songs is TOO much, I tend to think one or even 3-4 songs would be too little for me.

It's hard to work on certain songs when my emotions are not in tune with it. So I like...

How many songs do you have "in progress" at any time?

I've got about 80 songs "in progress" right now.

After I start with an idea (chord progression, riff, etc.), I might play around with it a while, decide I like it enough to "keep" it as a song...

Rhythm guitar questions

I'm self-taught for about 4 years. I want to lay down some better recordings, of me playing chord progressions (the "rhythm" part) and soloing over them (the "lead" part).

Fret problem on vintage guitar -- can I fix just one fret or do I need to refret all?

The problem is that the 7th fret is "dead" at the high e...
