Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up August 28th, 2020
Greetings from smoky Northern California, although it is starting to get better thanks to cooler temps and a little moisture in the air. Still heavy airplay here of old Neil Young albums, which inspired today’s open improv, and another one later on this week’s new lesson from his first album.
The new lesson this week included the above mentioned tune from Neil Young, Here We Are In The Years, Souvenirs by John Prine, Waiting For That Day by George Michael, and Let’s Get Crazy by Prince. We also rolled out three 5-packs of Neil Young songs, with a few more coming out over the next couple weeks.
I recently mentioned we have been combing through our DVD archives and found a gold mine of theory lessons. The biggest one I have found so far is a set that Max put together called Fretboard Fundamentals. This is a great companion to some of our stalwarts like the Acoustic Genius Series and Lead Secrets: Triads.
Check out the old description here https://www.fretboardfundamentals.com/the-fundamentals-of-guitar-theory/ for a sneak preview.
Next week will bring us another Neil Young Double Dropped D tune that was recently recommended – The Old Laughing Lady. This segment included a bit of wandering improv in that tuning and a few snippets of songs that use. See how many you can spot.
We will also have another George Michael song from Vanessa, Careless Whisper, leading to a 5-pack of his, and the Toto classic Rosanna.
On to September…
