Dear TGP brain trust,
Are there any band/venue recommendations for live music in or near Denver for Thursday, 9/5/19. Preferred musical forms...
As a matter of fact, I do. Which album?
I use the volume, tone controls, and pickups to optimize the gain/ sustain and bass/treble balance. As I travel up and down the neck.
I’m 60. Been playing since 15. Taught for 20 years (Hey Dad, do you give lessons? I played some kids guitar, and they asked who I learned from)....
I also saw them on that tour. Amazing. Marty got a standing ovation after nearly every one of his solos. My wife was blown away by the band, and...
Too low an action means that during 2 and 3 semitones bends, the other strings get caught under my fretting fingers. With higher action, the other...
Clapton was hardly “upper class”.
He became landed gentry after he became rich and famous.
Badge by Cream is a great place to get mixo to blues and back.
The mixo is the b.b. and Freddie influence.
Speeches in a restaurant for a retirement dinner with a Shure Beta 58. The S1 was mounted on a stand 6' high. So anemic.

Play on the 2 and 4. Sync up w snare and high hat. Stay out of the way.

So I ask, how old were you?
13 when I first touched an instrument, 15 when I started playing every day.
What instrument did you start with? Was...
Through talent, listening, practice, learning, and experience, Robben has achieved the ability to create the sounds in his brain/soul at the...
Saw the same show at the State Theater in New Brunswick, NJ. My show of the year too.
What instrument is that?!
Lap steel with hand levers. 6 string?
And that left hand string bend at 1:06 - 1:10 (oh my).
That happened to me!
A vote for Saturday nights.
"Nothing to do but today" is a personal fave.
Check out the guitar strap coming off at the 1:00 mark, while bending the 5th in the BB lick. Doesn’t miss a beat (or fraction thereof). Nice...
Blues, country, jazz, rock, indie, etc.
Thanks in advance.
I have the exact same behavior with my Ojai. Glad I found this post. Was it ever fully resolved? It works out ok for me, because I usually have...
