  8. Quiet Amplifier So for this song Jeff stated that he tuned his guitar to C#G#C#G#G#C# for this song (https://www.guitarplayer.com/players/jeff-tweedy-and-nels-cline-on-how-cheapo-guitars-and-rubber-bridges-helped-them-find-happiness-on-ode-to-joy) The chords I hear throughout are C# and D#m so I guess just fingerpick to your heart's content throughout. Things I've done: Capo 1 and play C and Dm Tune 1/2 step down to C# G# C# F# A# D# (Like a Drop D tuned down a 1/2 step) and play D and Em (222000) Intro C# C# I wish your world was mine D#m C#

  10. I always try to look for a video of the song live when I can and that’s what it looked like. It’s a bit tricky and took me a while. Now we need people to have a go at some of the leads because that’s beyond my ability.

  16. My thoughts on Ode To Joy: In my six years as a teacher, one thing I have to remind myself is to have a growth mindset instead of a fixed mindset.

  21. The whistleblower complaint is out and...oh boy.
  22. My wife and I did the basic because we’re teachers on a budget during the summer (teachers do not get paid over the summer, at least in Chicago). Would have loved to do the VIP. We did get to see quite a bit with the basic tour, like his outfits during the different eras, his guitars through the years (the purple Rickenbacker 360 was beautiful), his office, his dance studio that was turned into the Purple Rain room which held the script, Oscar, and some other memorabilia from the movie, one of his his three recording studios, and the tour ended with the full video of his Super Bowl performance
