The new Sheraton!

This is from the second time I've plugged this new guitar in. It is very different from the Strat that I am used to, but I really think I will be able to find the magic in it.

As always, please forgive the poor recording quality and all mistakes.
I like this guitar!

Re: Epiphonic Blind Test

:icon_whoknows: They sound very close to me. I agree with VB that the first one sounds a bit more articulate and the second one a bit thicker. My experience with Gibson and Epiphone (I have and play both) tells me that this could be a toss up. So, simply to cover the bases, I'll guess that the secon...

But - what's the thing that looks like a cut-off finger next to the fretboard?
Lol :lol: It's the little leather tab used to open the storage compartment. It ought to be in good shape, it's brand new (2016). I can't wait to plug it in! :chicken:

I always like to see someone play with fingers, rather than a pick. Sounds good.

Re: Over Three Months

:clap: :clap: I really like the Empty Bed Blues. I have enough trouble playing well in standard tuning that I don't even try alternates (aside from slide). This reminded me of something Mississippi John Hurt might do. I thought that the Google titled piece sounded very cool. What a fun approach to i...

We lost another great this weekend. The Allman Brothers were one of my favorite bands, and Gregg had one of the greatest voices in rock and roll. :tears:

Jam with a good friend

An old friend of mine, and one of the best blues guitarists that I know sat in whith the three piece version of the Trainwreck Blues Band Saturday night. One of the patrons took this cellphone video of a song. If this post works, I will elaborate. https://www.facebook.com/eric.szeman/videos/14589749...

Maybe BB can add another flavor...?
I'll give it a try. Gotta find a time when my wife isn't needing the computer room. It's the only place I can hook to the laptop and play the music through the stereo.

If VB still has the separate tracks - why not?
That might work. :cool: Can give it a try. :music2:

Re: More Gills in a Pink Fish

I like these quite a bit, VB. The Gilly one would be a fun collab if I were equipped to do a collab. Don't fret about your voice. It's the one you have and it is never as bad as it seems when you listen back to it (believe me, I know about that!), and it will improve, the more you use it. I'm enjoyi...

Re: Tuning for 8-String Lap Steel Blues

Wow, that's a question that is far beyond my poor expertise. The only slide I play is bottleneck style on a six string, and I favor open G for bluesy stuff, and open D for more melodic things.

Saturday night rig

I've been having some fun going to the Saturday night acoustic open mic that my buddy hosts at the local bar. After the dinner crowd thins out, we set up in a big circle in front of the fireplace and swap songs. There is usually a guy playing upright bass, a young woman playing a cajon, and several ...

RIP Jim Marshall

I don't favor the Marshall amps myself, but they sure did make the sound of rock and roll. A great many of my favorite players used them. I suspect that Jim Marshall was as big an influence as Leo Fender in many ways.
