1. During the first week of August 2020, we'll be upgrading the software TGP runs on to the currently available up-to-date version. The software version is a significant upgrade, so there will be some downtime as we do the work under the hood. We've got a team of professionals, including the software development company assisting the process. We've conducted substantial tests using backups of the current forum to ensure a smooth and successful upgrade. We've gone to great lengths on the design of the theme (aka 'skin' or look and feel) of the forum to offer a better user experience for members and visitors. The default theme will be new, yet clearly influenced by the classic TGP look. We will have a dark version of that also easily selectable. Also available will be a "Classic TGP" theme that closely matches the current theme you are accustomed to using with the current software. There is also an easy width adjustment to make it set width or expand to your window width for each theme. As we get closer, I'll update everyone so hopefully, no one will be caught by surprise.

    This was my favorite song decades ago. Is it the new Stairway to Heaven?

    There must be something wrong with my brain. Unlike other people, I don't get sick of songs I like. I love Stairway to Heaven and Little Wing. If I hear them too much I may want to take a break from them, but I'll come back.

    He contributed to Voodoo Chile becoming too overplayed.

    Little Wing is so out of favor for most of the world. I have rarely seen anyone play it in years; nobody I play music with brings it up. It has been over ten year since the musical cohort I ramble with has been interested in that song.

    Same here. I can’t tell at this point if it just the covers or the original as well. I will listen to Axis Bold as Love 1st and then attempt to listen to a Little Wing cover. If that doesn’t work I will put on the Jimi studio version and try to feel that inspiration again.

    The song isn't the problem. The endless wanking running blues scales with no musical path or goal is the problem.

    Great song. I rarely hear it these days. OP, where are you hearing it? Live bands, Sirius, pedal demo’s?

    I agree
    I agree...every kid on YT abuses it...

    It's downgraded to my list of "songs, I won't never ever listen to again"...I already get sick,when I hear the first 3 seconds...

    To be fair, Derek & the Dominoes did it first before Stevie

    Great song. While I appreciated Derek & the Dominos' cover, Stevie's was more true to the original and is why I like his better. Otherwise, I do not tire of the tune.
