    Well, this weekend has been my first semi-serious dive into Word Press. Here's what I've got now: http://www.threechordme.com/wp

    Trying to mimic what I have going on here: http://www.threechordme.com

    I've gone through various designs throughout the years and got frustrated and took down all my content. When I get the theme where I want it, I'll set it to load from the root. Eventually I may want a hybrid; a blog powered by WordPress with separate content pages for art and music.

    Dude!
    I really really like this layout.

    It is very classy, well spaced, subtle and easy to look at.

    Frankly, I wouldn't change a thing.

    Except...
    I get on others about this, but I like sub-headers. 10 words or less that gives you the jist of the blog. Would be nice, but not necessary. You have a pretty expansive "about" page.

    Good work!

    interesting. I would get rid of that info at the bottom and put your own mark on it. Looks pretty cool.

    Good job. The only thing that bugged me was the header logo isn't vertically centered inside the black rounded edge top bar.

    I don't see no off centering? Then again I don't fully understand that comment.
    Why didn't you just Create a static page and make your website from your blog? I did. Adding content is so freaking easy after making the switch from html to php

    With the off centering, you mean the words inside the black bar? What browser/OS do you see this in? I don't have regular access to a Windows machine with IE and so far as I can tell it is centered in all the browsers I have.

    In an effort to be more compliant/accessible/whatever, the words are not part of the logo. Rather they are altered with CSS and just set to text-align: center. The black bar is a simple PNG set as the background for the header div. If need be I'll replace the whole thing with a centered image w/ a rollover.

    As far as making a static page and making the site from my blog, I may do that. The only thing I don't like now is that it still feels very much like a WordPress theme, and that's fine for now.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll take them into consideration and hit this over the weekend again.
