Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up August 7th, 2020
Stevie Wonder has been getting a bit of airplay around TG Central lately, but more on that next week. It just led to a little attempt at one of his signature riffs. We will see where we go with that.
News Break- IGC 2020 is being postponed until April or maybe even September 2020. All registered campers have been informed.
Anybody ever have songs that get rusty from neglect? Somehow Sylvia ran through my head mid-sentence when talking about the IGC postponement. A bit of advice on keeping hundreds of tunes stage ready escaped and I mangled my way through some songs I used to have in good shape. Keep a list and check it often!
New stuff this week included Dun Ringall by Jethro Tull (from the Recommend A Lesson Forum thread), Suspicious Minds by Elvis (which I tried a bit of a solo version of), It Must Have Been Love by Roxette, and another classic from Brian Hyland, Sealed With A Kiss.
We also got to a Student Review for Ysela who did a fabulous job on Strange by Patsy Cline. Please keep those coming.
I am thrilled with the action on the Recommend A Lesson thread and many of the latest suggestions are already under consideration. I even tried a bit of the latest Beatles suggestion, with mixed results. I really should listen to these a bit before heading out those limbs. But all in good fun, I think.
Next week will bring us more from the suggested lessons, another Roxette tune and some material we have only had on DVDs in the past, as well as a guest teacher who will start making occasional lessons for us.
Stay Tuned & In Touch,
