As I started the camera today, I lapsed into a bit of channeling John Fahey with something reminiscent of his Christmas Fantasy type ramblings, starting with a couple traditional carols, then some improvising. This led to thoughts on how he influenced me. This was followed by a personal story about my daughter Rebecca, who graduated from chiropractic school yesterday. The graduation was about the best ever, in spite of the current worldwide situation, and I elaborate on that in the clip. It is funny thinking of her as Dr. Hogan. We are all very proud.
The new stuff this week included a couple slide lessons in Open G, Silent Night and Leo Kottke’s The Sailor’s Grave On The Prairie, along with It’s So Easy by Guns N’ Roses to shift the balance somewhat.
Next week we will have Vanessa’s take on Forgiven, Not Forgotten by The Corrs (which was delayed due to a little flu that burned through her house, and her). Max will bring us a Paganini piece arranged for guitar and I am finishing up Genesis by Jorma Kaukonen. I am also looking for suggestions on one or two more Christmas tunes if anybody has any suggestions. If not, I will pick one and hope to get it out soon.
Back next week…
