"Documenting The Original 424 Guitar Technique."
Started in the Summer of 2012, "424" is a distinct sound that consists of only 4 finger positions, multiplied by 6 strings, yielding 24 notes (Hence why it's called "424"). The fret positions typically follow an XOXXOX pattern.
(Note: In this case, open strings represent the first X). Once you've got the four positions down, start combining them with different strumming & arpeggio patterns and experiment until it sounds the way you like it.
If you like the 424 technique, consider sharing it with other musicians to create new sound combinations; and perhaps submit your own version of the 424 sound in a video response; or just watch my progress of the technique, and maybe leave a comment, subscribe, share etc...

Abstract Summary:What is Profit? Do you consider THE424SHOW to be For-Profit? or Not-For-Profit?
The Whole Scenario:1. Imagine there was a student that applied to a Post-Secondary Institution.
2. Imagine that same student was accepted into a program to learn web design.
3. And finally, Imagine the student spent 2 years studying all the best tips and tricks to creating a website that could entertain the world; they completed their studies; and created said website asking for donations to keep the site running and make a living.
The Problem:Now imagine that same student wished to promote that same website on a bulletin board at that same Institution. However, the Institution has a policy that states:
"No posters shall be displayed on this bulletin board, unless they are not-for-profit."
Ethical Questions for Debate:1. Is the website considered to be For-Profit? or Not-For-Profit?
2. Should the student be allowed to promote said website on the bulletin board?
3. What is Profit? At what surplus are donations considered to be Profit?
At what point are donations considered just-making-ends-meat?
A Closer Look:Now Imagine this scenario was about THE424SHOW.
What do You think should happen? What do you think will happen?
Note: A significant number of bulletin boards on campus go completely unused.

What is Thought-Logging, exactly? Well, a Thought-Logger is a program you can use to keep track of all your Thoughts & Ideas. It's similar to keeping a Journal, but with an easy-to-use digital interface; so it's more straight-forward, and more to-the-point. In this way, you can easily record your thoughts and observations so you never miss those million-dollar-ideas. You know the ones I'm talking about :PNow, I haven't come across a program that meets all my needs, so I created my own-- and you can try it out for yourself below. Not only does it keep Timestamps of your thoughts to pinpoint the exact moment when you came up that amazing idea; but it also provides a wonderful Feedback Loop to expand your ideas much further than the limitations of your short-term memory. I highly recommend everyone does this; not only to become smarter and more intelligent; but also to grow as a person. Say Hello your own mind for me!
Now, I realize these steps can be a bit challenging to understand for some people, so before resorting to YouTube for a tutorial, consider that sometimes the process is worth just as much as the end result. And like everything, it's pretty easy once you know how to do it:
Click the green Download button above, and after the Download completes, please extract the Compressed Files to a familiar location on your computer (like your Home Screen Desktop); this is typically accomplished by Right-Clicking the "Thought-Logger_v1.0.zip" folder and choosing "Extract All..." Then Click Browse to Select the place you want to put the files on your computer (such as your Desktop), click ok, and Extract. Alternatively, you can also use a Compression/Decompression Tool like 7-Zip (optional). Once the files have been unpackaged, you should see "Logger.bat" and "ARCHIVES" on your Desktop (or wherever you chose to extract the files). Then, just Double-Click on "Logger.bat," to start Thought-Logging ;)

1. Make a Donation of any amount using the button below.
2. Email THE424SHOW@gmail.com with the word "Donation" in the email title field.
3. You should automatically get a response with a download link to "Dot Fable,"
an earlier experimental CD of mine. The one that started it all.
While THE424SHOW will always remain free, I could surely use some money on the side :P And instead of selling CDs, and going through all the industry hassle as a new musician, I'm just going to let listeners decide what I deserve for my work. . . and if that happens to come in the form of a donation, then so be it.
Thanks for Your Time
