....thanks Mark..great picker..sorry off topic, would you know how many american standard b benders fender makes, my guess is maybe 1 for every 1000 reg. standards?..thanks
...another great player in this style...thumbs carllile
I got to watch Thumbs many many times when he was the guitar player at The Palomino Club in LA. He is awesome.
No one knows Fender doesnt release any production numbers of guitars they make.
Wow- that's amazing.
I really think all of us that play guitar holding it the regular way are doing it wrong.
Thumbs Jeff Healey and Rory Hoffman are all awesome players that can do chords we cant do playing it the regular way. They also dont have to worry about a too thin or thick neck.
Bumping this thread.
I just now stumbled across this fantastic musician on Nashville channel 3, the gov't channel. ?? Trio with violin & bass. He played guitar & accordion, sometimes switching mid-tune. Sort of in the vein of Django/Hot Club etc. No credits given; I had to google to discover who he was. Rory Hoffman, of course. I thought I'd check this forum to see if there were any mentions of him. A couple including this one.
Here's a profile on him in the Nashville Tennessean, from May 2012:
Blind picker Rory Hoffman does it ‘all wrong,’ but he’s doing something right
Looking forward to watching the (long) video posted here by Mark Davis!
That was soooo good!
I agree. If I didn't have more than half a century invested in the wrong way, I'd be strongly tempted to start fresh.
The downside to playing on one's lap is that it's much easier to sell a song to an audience standing up. But since my only audience these days is myself, that doesn't really carry much weight.
Maybe I'll try it anyway...
It looks like Hoffmans style is similar to Braille chording on an old Perkins embosser.
Sigh, just another picker light years ahead of me.
Look at this guy rip!
Just found this guy and had to make sure it was on here...wow.
very cool !
