Re: Conan and Jack White

And the TBS link even works outside the USA! Thanks for finding that. That was pretty cool. I've always liked the incredibly dirty tones that Jack uses for his soloing. And I didn't know Conan could play. I'm impressed. Here is Jack at the White House playing for the President and Paul McCartney. Y...

Re: Conan and Jack White

Yeah, that was pretty cool. I had a double dose of Jack White inspiration. The night before I watched "It might get loud" on Netflix streaming. It's a documentary with Jimmy Page, The Edge, and Jack. I've had sensory overload this week. I got "It Might Get Loud" a few months back. Well worth it . I...

Re: If you were not a guitar player...

My pick would be keyboards. Lately I have been having trouble with nerve damage to my left hand. I can only play about 15-20 minuets at a time. I would also consider Steel Guitar. I have a lap steel and it don't seem to hurt my wrist much. Another choice for me would be a mountain dulcimer :note2: :...

SSG Year 9 - All Assignments

This is pretty cool. About a week ago I was looking at the same song(Motherless Children). Its a long standing tradition in folk music to take a older melody and write new words to it.Taking a song like 'Pretty Polly' and turning it into The Ballad of Hollis Brown. I like the arrangement! I think I ...

Re: 30 years ago today

I remember that one! I think my brother was on his way to Ticket Tron to score some tickets when the news broke :(
That really was a "Crappy year". Seems like every 10 years or so we loose some of the best.

Re: Yamaha copy of Martin D-45

You might look around for a 'Blueridge'. I have one I picked up used about 7 years ago. Mine is a BR-0S. Its about 21 years old from what I can gather on the internet. Its pretty much a martin clone and sounds really good. Plays well also. Blueridge guitars are fairly popular with the bluegrass play...

Re: "I’ll never be a great banjo player"

Reminds me of T Model Ford. He is an old blues man, 76 years old . He started playing guitar at 58 after his wife left him for another man. Now Mr T Model is not a great guitar player but he makes up for it with tons of MOJO 8) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3V2GWlcUg4&feature=related http://www.yo...
