    Saddest Song

    Lots of great, sad songs here but there is at least 1 really great one missing: Incredible harmony, and Mayfield's superb voice, this tops my lists of sad songs. Brandon

    New Scott French website...

    Yeah, his website mentions that he has moved much of his Boogie amps. Scott has always had a soft spot for supporting other CA based artists and makers. Both of my guitars have gig bags made my CA small makers. The one with the Pau Ferro top has a super creative fitted gig bag with an...

    New Scott French website...

    And while he called them travel guitars as they will fit in an airline overhead compartment, they are full 25.5 inch scale instruments. The extended upper horn allows the upper and lower strap buttons to be exactly the same distance as the strap buttons on a strat. Really, really creative. Brandon

    New Scott French website...

    Hi all, First as a disclaimer, I've never met Scott and have nothing to do with his website or his business. I am lucky enough to own the original SF3 travel guitar and a second SF3 travel guitar that Scott started and sold to me to finish. The original has the Bolivian rosewood top with a...

    Ooga Chaka, Ooga ooga...

    I've never been a big fan of the tune either, especially compared to other tunes coming from Memphis and American in that era. Brandon

    Ooga Chaka, Ooga ooga...

    Crazy, there was a thread a bit ago with an alternate take of Elvis singing "Suspicious Minds" and now we have this thread. As it turns out, "Hooked on a Feeling" was also written by Mark James, the writer and original singer of "Suspicious Minds". Reggie Young, the guitarist on both the Mark...

    Elvis' Suspicious Minds (Take 6)

    There are a number of standards recorded in Memphis that didn't go anywhere until someone else re-recorded the song with a near identical arrangement. Danny O'Keefe's Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues and Merrilee Rush's Angel of the Morning immediately come to mind. Suspicious Minds has...

    Elvis' Suspicious Minds (Take 6)

    And not that it matters in this thread but I assume folks realize that the original version of Suspicious Minds was recorded in the Memphis at American Sound by Mark James. If you didn't realize you do now :). Brandon

    Primus showing out on MTV in '93

    Early 90s Primus was great, great stuff. I was in Columbia, MO at that time and Primus opened for Fishbone on the first date of a national tour that started at the Blue Note in COMO. Fishbone had just released Reality of My Surroundings and both bands were 100% at the height of their powers...

    Your favorite tremolo songs?

    My, my folks, we're 5 pages in and no one has mentioned Guitar Town!!!!!! I never have known if the trem riff was done with a detuned tele or if this one is a tremolo'd bass VI.

    13 Songs vs Repeater

    Repeater for me slightly over 13 Songs although as already noted Margin Walker is the individual song that is my favorite when just considering these two. In the full Fugazi catalog, both Red Medicine and Argument would rank higher in my list of favorite Fugazi records than either Repeater or...

    RIP Julee Cruise

    RIP, Julee. As a Lynch fan, Julee was a huge part of the soundtrack to my early adulthood. If folks haven't ever heard it, Lynch, Badalamenti, and Julee collaborated to cover Elvis on Wem Wender's Until the End of the Work soundtrack in stunning fashion: Brandon

    30 years of Angel Dust

    While I grab all of the Mr. Bungle records regularly, Angel Dust is the only FNM record that I ever spin these days. The 2 cd deluxe edition with the b-sides and live tracks is the way to go IMHO. Brandon

    Unpopular opinion: Pablo Honey is great

    First, Pablo Honey is great and I think most music fans would agree. At the same time, I also believe that it isn't Radiohead's best album, depending on the day, I will pick Ok Computer, Kid A, or The Bends as my favorite. Pablo Honey just pales a bit compared to the band's other output. That...
