Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up November 16th, 2018
This week I was in Phoenix for the inaugural meeting of a chapter of the Guitar League. Our friend Bart (familyman4) is just getting this off the ground and it looks to be a great thing for the guitar playing community. We had an interactive workshop that ran a couple hours and videos are under construction, with the first being released today. I started with my personal early days and hope to be bringing out new segments over the next couple weeks. It was great to reconnect with some IGCers and meet some new TGers.
I started the News today with one of the first fingerpicking songs I remember learning from my second teacher Alan Beilharz. I imagine some of the old timers will have no trouble recognizing it. The answer is in the video from Tuesday evening. I followed that with some info on why posts get repeated in the Forum, as well as advice on embedding YouTube links into posts.
The new stuff this week also included a FOTW with Sandy working on a couple Kate Wolf songs, Pacheco and Redtail Hawk, a look at Crossroads as done by Eric Clapton, and a new band to TG (and me of course) Sixpence None The Richer.
Not a lot of playing today but I ended with a rendition of Black Orpheus, similar to the way it was done on my Yesterday’s News CD. I hope you enjoy it and find some time to work on your own musical projects as we head into the Holiday Season.
