    So I just found out the 1959 in the Marshall Plexi Super Lead 1959 (think Townshend, Page, Angus, Clapton, Hendrix, etc) is a model number, not a year. What have you learned recently?:)

    I learned that Joan Jett didn't write I Love Rock and Roll.

    It's early. So, I just learned, thanks to you, that the 1959 in the Marshall Plexi Super Lead 1959 is the serial number.
    Oh, and that I'm out of iced tea.

    The word diatomaceous as in diatomaceous earth. Don't want to start a fight in a good thread, so let's just say I won't be ingesting it (even though I could).

    I’ve been revisiting songs I played in my college days, 1967-1971. I can’t believe how bad I was, or at least how unimaginative my renditiins were. I was noodling in A Dorian and Jimmy Reed’s “Caress Me Baby” came up from nowhere. That blues number works in the Dorian mode and I don’t sound like a white guy trying to play a black guy’s blues playing it that way. Yesterday, “The Ballad of Easy Rider” came up on my YouTube feed. Back then, I strummed it. I’m relearning it finger style now with open strings, expanded chords and different inversions of them, a new intro, and a solo I never played in the song back then. It was surprisingly quick to come up with a way to play it that draws on a personal style I’ve developed over the last 10 years. With time on my hands, creatively trumps Big Bang and Law and Order reruns every day now.

    Actually, I’ve learned how to play and sing the entire Side One of Something New, the Beatles Capitol Album released July 1964.
    As I wrote this I realized I already know every song on Side Two - except I cannot sing the last song - I don’t know how to speak or sing in German.
    Today, “when I get home” from the hospital, if it’s early enough I’m going to put the entire thing together.
    Also, when I attempt to sing “When I Get Home” is the point when my wife comes upstairs and closes the door.
    God! They were good, weren’t they?
