We encourage solo play for advanced players.

Experience: None required! All levels are welcome, from beginners to professionals. If you don't know the chords... just sing louder.

    anyone know how to get in touch with frank moone? i have a question about the notation in "michelle" (specifically, what "1h3" and similar means). so enjoying the riffs!

      Hi Lisa! The 1h3 means play 1st fret and hammer on to 3rd fret. The wavy line behind some of the notes is a "bend" in the string, just move the string side to side. A "p" is a pull off, fret the note and pull your finger off, opposite of hammer on. Hope that helps!!
