Your English is just fine, Michael. I have no trouble understanding you.
Thank you, and yes, I do love playing the blues! :cool:

Re: Standard tuning slide...

Thanks, 12bar.
12bar wrote:Great how you mix slide and fretted playing
Actually, the only fretted notes I'm doing are when I play the G chord. I fret the low E with my thumb and the high E with my forefinger. All the rest is slide.

Standard tuning slide...

OK, here's another one. Monday night we had a feller named Jeff sit in. We had no idea what he was going to play, but he said it was in G, so I thought I would sling some slide on it. (I can just barely play slide in standard tuning, and only in G. :roll: ) At the beginning, you can see me trying to...

Re: Not sure I even want to post this...

Thanks for all the kind words. :shy: I'm really lucky to have the band and venue that I do. I pretty much only pick up the guitar once a week at our Monday night jam. We are a bunch of close friends (band and audience) and have a great time together. This is the longest lived band I have ever had (s...

Not sure I even want to post this...

I have no DAW, or interface, so I can't play into the computer machine. The only way I have to share music is by video. I asked a friend to video this song Monday night and forgot that I had the camera on close up mode, so it is blurry. Oh well, call it an effect. :big_smile: This is our take on an ...

Re: Travel Guitar

Hope your family crisis turns out ok. Sweet project! I used to have an old John Mayall album, and on the cover he was playing a severely chopped down Strat. Looked almost like a Stienberger. (I no longer have the album... I sold all my whole collection last weekend) Yours came out looking really nic...

Re: Off limit or not ?

I did a self build strat from spare parts... Still have it and play it.
Here is an old thread, a bit tongue in cheek, about how I built it.

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...
