Recently I heard Gotta Get Away by the Black Keys. And it took me a couple days to identify Ball and Chain by Social Distortion as the song it sounded like. My resident musician tells me this is a simple 154 chord progression and pointed me to Dead Flowers by the Rolling Stones. Got any others? [more inside]

If somebody says "I love those awesome chords they use over each other in the chorus. the F#/D# into the A/D and then A/B just sounds too epic!" ...how can I understand what they mean without being a music major? [more inside]
I would love to buy some lamp chord that looks like this chord on etsy and not have to pay a ridiculously exorbitant price. Does it exist? My google-fu can't find it.
I am looking for Windows software that lets me play with chord progressions and hear how they sound. I think Band in the Box does this but it's way more powerful and expensive than what I need. [more inside]
What is the best way to master scales, chords, and chord progressions on the piano / keyboard. More specifically, help me create harmony and melody. My husband and I are starting to create music on our computer. I think I have a pretty good ear for what sounds good, but I feel like a complete hack on the keyboard. I would like to become proficient at hitting keys that sound well together or next to each other. I am studying basic theory, but where does the rubber meet the road? Is it simply muscle memory? I am not really interested in playing a piece of sheet music, but if that will help, I will learn. I just want to create my own music. I know I have to practice, but practice doing what? I would be rather proud of myself if someone told me drop and play I V vi IV in F Major and I could do it without thinking.

I need to find songs that sound similar to the chorus of "destrokk" by mgmt (video included)! It's a typical chord sequence, so there must be a few!

How do you secure a plug so that even if someone yanks on the chord, it doesn't come out of an outlet? It does need to be POSSIBLE to get the plug out sometimes, and it won't work to glue/staple the chord to the wall, because sometimes equipment needs to be moved to another room. [more inside]

As I begin to learn the piano again, there are some songs I'd love to try to play but for which I cannot find sheet music (I definitely want to learn to play by ear at some point, but I don't think that point would best be now). I can however obtain guitar tabs for the songs, and so I'm hoping to try to translate those into rough sheet music for the piano. Can I just translate it note by note (and chord by chord), or are there some specifics about guitar tabs I should be aware about and take into account (it seems that way, a quick direct translation didn't seem to turn out quite right)?
