Totally Guitars Weekly Update February 17, 2023
February 17, 2023
Three new lessons this week, starting off with the long-promised Death Don’t Have No Mercy as done by Jorma Kaukonen on the first Hot Tuna album, followed by Linda Ronstadt’s first hit Different Drum, and ending with a real oldie, Summer Holiday by Cliff Richard And The Shadows.
I played through a bit of a couple of those, including an instrumental draft of the Mike Nesmith tune, as well as an early hint of a beautiful Afro-Cuban Lullaby (Drume Negrita), which may turn into a lesson sometime soon.
There was a short update on baby hummingbirds in the back yard, a cameo video bomb from Ponzu (El Gato Negro), hints about upcoming lessons and packs.
Today’s tip was on playing parallel 6ths in the key of C on the 2nd and 4th strings. This can be carried over to other strings in the key of G but I decided to postpone those details before it got too confusing. I encourage you to explore that on your own and I will try to follow up on that next week.
The last detail was about IGC, which is sold out at this point. That is subject to change with cancellations, but I suggest getting on the waiting list if you are interested. Send a message to [email protected].
See you next week,
