I haven't played anything but my own songs in a month. I think I'll continue tightening up.
I watched the last rehearsal tapes preparing for the Michael Jackson tour that never happened last night.
That got me going a bit, great huge array of players all working hard for a single purpose.
Sad too, odd mix of feelings.
I forget what it's called but it's not hard to find.
The Catherine Wheel, Rolling Blackouts CF, and Best Coast are being spun currently.
Started learning classical. Been playing Bach everyday for a couple months now. Every day I get faster.
I am a big fan of Bach, but hate most other composers... Bought the book years ago, never used it... After failing to learn how to Jazz comp, I forced myself to learn the numbers on the fretboard. Has helped my tablature reading tremendously. Can sight read tabs now.
It is also inspiring and shakes things up for those dull moments when you can't think of anything to play. I wish I learned classical guitar when I was a kid, but this is a huge step for me. Still can't believe how much a little each day improves your muscle memory and sight reading.
Another benefit is the crossword puzzle benefit for the brain, keeps your brain tuned up.
I have been playing my Hendrix Strat and my Martin Dreadnought Junior a ton.
The Strat through my Princeton and the Martin Acoustically. I have a D28 and I love it but these new Dread Jr's have a scale that's 1 inch shorter. They play like butter; it makes you feel like Superman.
I've been going from Ben Rector to The Wild Reeds to REM. I have a really nice Steely Dan book and I'm slowly learning too play Peg correctly. Just getting through intro almost drove me insane. Crazy jazz chords.
Mostly these folks the last week or so.
Been focusing on rockabilly and some old school country chops....
beyer160......MAN!, thanks for posting Khruangbin.....they're fantastic. I've seen the name a time or two, but never listened. While it's not music I would necessarily play myself, I still enjoyed immensely. I especially like where the bass level is in the mix, and a drummer who doesn't overplay all the time. I'm gonna do some checking into these guys......thanks again!
BTW.....why hasn't Tarantino used Khruangbin in his films?
The last few days I've been on my nylon string, fingerpicking old Celtic tunes. I needed a break from this century.
Lots of Dead.
Now you have me wanting to do a white refin on my jr.
Been listening to all sorts of things, but today the song "One Bullet" by New Model Army has really been rocking my world.
Nothing screamed "buy me" more than a Billie Joe Armstrong I played. That was before I retired. I was too responsible and bought the $699 version. Maybe seafoam green for my homebrew tele. Nah. Wife thinks I need other priorities.
Doc Holliday - Fabulous Southern Rock
been learning all I can, in detail, from three Ernest Tubb records, Country Dance Time, Midnight Jamboree, and My Pick of the Hits
so that'd be Buddy Charlton, Leon Rhodes, and I think Buddy Emmons
nothing like stone cold country for burning the fretboard in
those guys tore it up!
I've been on a rory Gallagher irish tour 74 kick for some reason. I've been copping some licks from cradle rock and walk on hot coals.
Yeah, thanks for Khruangbin-- I play in a funk band so there are some good ideas here for me. Also really enjoyed the Chic clip and want to go through their catalog for some OG funk learning. In terms of new funk, I'm really digging "3 on E" by Vulfpeck--
Funny, i just answered this question over on Gretsch-Talk, too.
Def Leppard - Switch 625. I want to learn the lead parts and then record them, and the power chords, over a backing track of the bass and drums.
Dwight Yokum - Fast As You. Just the intro
Trying to find my motivation/muse for both fiction writing (my real passion) and for music. Having a tough time enjoying playing by myself. I bet a new guitar would help that....
Just bought the first Black Crowes album. My girlfriend was playing a song on her computer the other day and I was thinking it was kinda cool and I always meant to check them out but never did. It's all simple blues - very easy to jam along with.
Tripped me out when I found out it was 30 years old. I still think of them as a new band, new music.
