    Favorite Heavy Riffs

    Think longevity - this one was from 1992 and they did it again in 2017:

    Dyeing wooden dowels

    Black glossy nail polish. Multiple very light coats. Thin it out and airbrush it if you have the tool.

    1971 Rosewood Tele: Any recs for routing repairs? (ideally SoCal/AZ)

    My guess on that hole is someone at some time had it mounted on a wall with a peg or a screw. Maybe a club or museum-case display, not meant to be moved.

    Building a Classic Rock Setlist

    Don't count out really good singles just because the artist didn't have what you think qualifies as a full stack of rock hits. I've done Billy Joel's You May Be Right without a keyboard player and sax and with some really creative work from our lead guitar player it was a hit with the crowd...

    Building a Classic Rock Setlist

    If you don't think Bob Seger's Old Time Rock & Roll is rock and roll I wish you luck in your project. Another direction if you have a keyboard or harmonica is Huey Lewis.

    Building a Classic Rock Setlist

    If someone has the vocal range look at John Fogarty. Bob Seger still gets lots and lots of classic rock airplay, too.

    Help! Need more hot country chicken pickin' jazz/early instrumental rockabilly!

    Let's not forget the king of dieselbilly, Bill Kirchen. AKA "The Titan of the Telecaster."

    Favorite lyric? A line from a song that stands out to you.

    Its Main Street after midnight just like it was before 21 months later at the local grocery store Sherry buys a paper and a cold 6-pack of beer The headlines read that Sonny is goin' to the chair She pulls back onto Main Street in her new Mercedes Benz The road goes on forever and the party...

    Is simpler better?

    No doubt about it. And it works best if you have someone in the band who knows how to entertain a crowd without being obnoxious. If you've ever seen Vince Gill or Brad Paisley live, they are masters at pacing with clever things to say and stories to tell between songs.

    Neighbors been cleaning out…

    No, just a wee bit of an optimist. A crazy person would have taken it home and spent the day trying to plug it in and get a sound out of it.

    Top Load or Thru the Body?

    Through the body is easier to change - just make sure you test how smooth the bridge holes are. I use a Q-tip to test them first and sure enough, every once in a while there will be a snag that needs polishing.

    Who you gonna call?

    If you've got little kids put it up out of reach - that will keep them out of there, too!
