Re: Y'all gotta hear this!!

Here's another one. Now she is all of nineteen years old. This young lady has become one of my favorite guitar players!

Y'all gotta hear this!!

I recently ran across these kids on Youtube and was blown away! :yikes:
They were in high school when this was recorded. Gives me hope for the younger generation.

A repost for TytlBlues...

Tytlblues, this is a jam with two guest artists, one from your neck of the woods. The other guitarist is a guy named Opie Hendrix, and he plays all around where you are. His band is Opie Hendrix and the Texas Tallboys. He is a good performer... Does, I guess, Americana. A mix of blues, country, and ...

Some Texas style blues.

Here's one of the few that I sing. (I call it singing. :roll: ) Usually I do this on the Strat, but the Casino was feeling good this night. https://youtu.be/fBr2vb-BAsA Forgive the mix... the camera was too close to the drums. On listening back, I'm pretty sure that my high E is flat... :shy: I can ...

Re: First attempt...

Thanks, fellers... We're going to try to tighten it up Monday night. One doesn't have to play fast to overplay... (I can't play that fast. :roll: ) It is more a matter of leaving spaces. Gerd, the lights are exaggerated by the camera. They aren't that bad in person, and I usually have my eyes closed...

First attempt...

This is a deceptively difficult tune to pull off. It's so easy to rush it or overplay (as I do here... :roll: ) This is our first try at it. I showed the gang the changes, and we gave it a shot. https://youtu.be/8nXPWj7z8RM We need to work up an intro of some sort, and I need to figure out what I wa...

Fixed my tube screamer...

I haven't used any pedals in years, but I was wanting start using my old Ibanez Tube Screamer for occasional gain. It has been cutting out and skwawking when bumped, so I took it apart and found some cracked traces where the input jack mounts to the circuit board. "Easy fix" I thought. I soldered th...

It could have been bad...

Well, Saturday night, we played at the restaurant and had a large number of guest artists and audience. (It's a holiday weekend) Some friends of mine from Albuquerque were playing at the bar across the street (where we used to play) so I went over to watch them. They were a killer three piece and so...

Re: Pinkie Pain Blues in B

Sweet! I like hearing your blues excursions. Great tone,by the way. :thumbsup:
Do I recall correctly that you put Lollar p-90's in that guitar?. I'm still working on trading for that vintage Gibson, but if it doesn't work out I might look into those for my Casino.

Re: My new GG signature acoustic guitar

Wow! That looks quit nice!
I, too am a fan of parlour and concert (000) sized guitars. I quite like the wasp waisted look of that one. Seems like you might get the best qualities of a parlour and a concert sized guitar.
Congratulations on the new addition to your stable! :thumbsup:

A romp with guest artists...

Here, we are jamming with guest artists Opie Hendrix from Texas on guitar and Bill Bailey on organ. It's very cool to be able to play with good musicians who can just wing it and do what we do... :thumbsup: https://youtu.be/Y0ECQMBjkgo This is very much off the cuff. I've played with these two guest...

Re: 1969 Gibson ES-340

Well, guys, I just couldn't get that Gibson out of my head. I can't justify spending the money on it, but I do have some valuable vintage gear gathering dust around the house... I called up my buddy and offered him my 1964 Fender Super Reverb amp (my best sounding amp, but too heavy to carry to gigs...

Re: Chill out A

A nice, kind of moody backtrack and great playing. You've got a lot of interesting runs going on there.
