Re: Your favourite blues record

I don't really have a favorite... I do still remember my dad bringing home Taj Mahal's Giant Step/De Old Folks at Home album in 1970 when I was seven. I loved that album then and still do songs from it whenever I play a gig. Playing along with the Beano album helped me move from playing scales to ac...

Re: The price of playing the blues

Playing the blues has been a lifesaver for me. I've played blues guitar for most of my life (I should be better than I am) and there have been times that having the outlet that playing blues provides has been the difference between making it or not. The day my father died is a good example. I was fo...

Re: Hello from Colorado

Welcome to the forum. I live not too far from you (compared to most members) in northern NM. Good luck on your blues journey. The classical training should help more than hinder you.

Re: A bit of Blues & not of Blues

I like both of these quite a bit. As Fenson noted, the origina blues men didn't worry too much about time signatures and consistent measures. :thumbsup: Your recording setup sure captures the tones of your acoustic guitars very well.

NGD

Well, I may be posting music again. :fingerscrossed: I was given a Line6 UX2 interface last night. I need to see if I can download the software for it from Line6 and get it working with my computer. If I can, I'll download Audacity and start recording again.

Re: The Life Timer Emptied

Glad to hear that your new faithful friend is settling in, and sorry to hear about your two losses - two in one year is really tough, and for one to be poison is simply horrible. Well, Mark, I'm sad to have to say that we lost Dakota today. We woke up this morning to find him paralysed from the mid...

Re: The Life Timer Emptied

I'm so sorry for your loss, though I'm glad that you still have a small companion. We lost two dogs in 2015 (one to poison, one to old age) and held off on getting another until this spring, when we got a dog from a rescue shelter in Santa Fe. He, of course, took a period of adjustment, but has now ...

Re: De Faoite Guitars - Terz Parlour

I'm so glad your dog is OK. A good friend of mine lost her dog to a rattlesnake bite last year. It happened right behind her house. That is a lovely little guitar. I like parlour guitars a lot... In fact, the only flattop guitar I own is an old Regal parlour guitar. Good luck with your house. I'm (s...

Re: Eric Clapton 2018 Cologne concert review

At least you got to see him live. My only Clapton concert experience was back in the early 80's... It sold out before I could get a ticket, so I went to the stadium hoping to get a ticket from a scalper (or sneak in :wink: ). I had no luck so I stood outside the doors and listened to the show from t...

Re: R.I.P. Matt Guitar Murphy - dead at 88

I was lucky enough to see him play in a bar in Oklahoma City, back in the 80's. He played an amazing set, then took a break. I approached him at the bar and introduced myself and shook his hand. He was friendly, but so drunk he couldn't speak coherently. I talked to (at) him for a few more minutes, ...

Re: NGD Rivera Custom P-93 (3 guitars in one)

Very nice! I've always liked those. I love P-90 pickups. I have two guitars epuipped with them, a Casino and a '52 Gibson ES-125, both of which get played often. If I had room for another guitar, a Riviera would be high on the list.

Nice. I've never seen a Parker "Tele" before. It looks good. The only performer I ever saw playing a Parker (Fly) live was Bluesman Corey Harris, back in the late 90's or very early 00's. I was kind of surprised to see a traditional blues artist playing a solo gig on the most modern guitar one could...
