Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up December 1st, 2017
So Thanksgiving has come and gone and now things will start to get really hectic. This morning I started a project of restringing and cleaning up my old Santa Cruz guitar (details on why are in the update), which, like many projects, led to an unplanned string of events. I ended up doing four guitars once I had all the stuff out and ready to go. This makes me remind you to change your strings more often.
There have been some great posts lately, particularly on the Busking Forum. I really enjoyed Carol’s version of the O’Carolan classic Si Bheag Si Mhor (as well as Dermot’s history addition), and the Moody Blues are always appreciated. I should make it a point to do lessons on the entire catalog of theirs.
The noodling today included a Linda classic, a little Leonard Bernstein, and even a chipmunk-type version of Puff The Magic Dragon, really used as a prologue to some thoughts on blues and turnarounds, along with quite a bit of solo jamming in E. Hopefully there will be something in there for everybody to add to their toolbox.
The recent lessons included Light My Fire by The Doors, Master Blaster by Stevie Wonder, Love You More by Racoon, and Living Doll by Cliff Richard. We also released a few new artist packs, The Bee Gees, Eric Clapton #2, and Dire Straits.
I also mentioned some of the lessons that are under construction here at TG Central, which keep getting more and more involved but they should see the light of day soon.
So off to the Los Gatos Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony for me, my yearly contribution to our little town.
Happy heading into the serious holidays week…
