    I can't think of any new songs. So I'm asking for your help.

    Just give me some chord changes, tab, or anything that can be bashed together into a nice little ditty. I like writing originals, the last one I wrote was really good (in the opinions of others).

    So if you submit, I will give you parcial credit for the song's composition depending on how much you submit.

    P.S. The last song I wrote was in E Minor.

    Try this chord sequence: C#m, Am, Bmaj, G#min. Now do it in 7/8. And tap chords on top while you play the bassline with your left hand. Good luck!

    DMV is essentially one chord in 4/4.

    Yea, I know. But I guess it's the tapping thing. Whenever I hear taping I immediatley think of DMV because that must of been the first place I heard it. Anyone know that really cool Wooten tap line on the new Bela Fleck album?

    You can voice all of those chords fretting the root/bass note and playing harmonics for the rest of the tones, except for the Cm/D chord. If you have a bass with a high C you could, but it would be a little bit tricky (open D string, Eb a la portrait of tracy {first finger on 2nd fret A string, pinky on 6th fret playing the Eb, ring finger play 5th fret on G and C strings...) Did I say tricky? I think i meant impossible.

    You can play that chord on a 4-string, just not simultaneously, unless you have a third or fourth hand.

    You could play Eb, then the C harmonic on the D string, the 5th fret G harmonic on the g string, and tap the D on the E.
