    If you don't use to, get some friends (non-guitarists if possible, if non-musicians maybe even better) who like music and start gathering together in a karaoke. You will start looking at some songs you already know with a different perspective, and also will have the opportunity to listen to many different styles - but not with guitarist GorgeousTones75's ears and criticism.

    It's not only the tone and the complexity of the guitar playing that make a good song. It seems obvious, but sometimes we have to force ourselves into stopping paying attention to what is not there, so that we can listen to - and appreciate - what actually is in the song.

    Because you like Bluegrass offshoots and collaborations... Bruce Hornsby’s new album is excellent, not that it’s bluegrass at all, but he has some of that in his blood.

    Whenever I get sick of overblown blues and blues/rock, I like to return to something more folk/blues. This new Jim Oblon album with just voice and National Resonator guitar is excellent.

    John Paul White, who was one half of The Civil Wars has a new album I like. The Civil Wars were folk/Americana, and this album takes his sound more in the direction of 60’s Everly Brothers and Roy Orbison. There’s some melancholy 3/4 country waltzes in there too.

    KEXP is a great place to find new acts. I saw Jungle as an opening act @ the Hollywood Bowl.

    Foy Vance has a new soul album (honestly, I prefer his other albums a lot more, but this is good if you like 60’s soul)

    Anything from the following record labels: Astralwerks, or Ninja Tune. Totally outside your comfort zone, superb variety of musicians. You're sure to find something interesting and cool.

    Love these guys... long haired, tattooed country boys (their words not mine). If you're over 40 their tune OG Blues will speak to you.



    My current favorite show to see live (for the last 17 years) any iteration of Keller William, solo, keller and the keels, KW and More than a little and a few more projects, he's currently got a bluegrass band touring called Pettygrass, you can guess what artist they cover. I never saw it live but he even did some shows with just him and Leo Kotke.

    Might not be in your wheelhouse, but I've been listening to Steve Kimock's Satellite City a lot -



    The whole album is great, but I'm especially fond of Mother's Song and Orson.
