Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up May 18th, 2018
The Santa Cruz strings have been on my guitar for a week now and they sound and feel pretty much the same, not the usual week old sound that I am used to. I think that 30 some years of D’Addario history is now history. Today’s update started with a little blues based on Want You To Know, as I remember it from the second Hot Tuna album. My agenda today included talking about our May sale on Beatles lessons, some news about both IGCs this summer, and a mimi-lesson on modes. The talk about modes may clear up some things, but it may cloud things as well since I wanted to keep it to just a few minutes.
This week we added lessons on Cocaine, as made famous by Eric Clapton, Goodnight Elisabeth by Counting Crows, and after a few setbacks I finally finished the look at Al Stewart’s Tim Passages. Songs like that can get quite complicated when I consider what I want to include and what can be left out or considered later. The sax solo here was an example. But now it is time to move on and I played a piece I am thinking of doing a lesson on, The Earl Of Salisbury. It has been a while since a classical lesson was added so I hope to get to that next week. In any case, I hope you enjoy hearing it.
That was about the shape of the News today,
