Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up February 5th, 2016
Well, I have certainly had a fun week. I can finally play with no pain to speak of, which brings good and bad news. Good that I’m playing a lot, bad that it is so much fun I didn’t manage to get to the lessons I have been planning. Oh well, maybe next week. I do want to thank Vanessa and Max for picking up the slack with Twentieth Century Fox by The Doors and Wake Me Up When September Ends by Green Day.
Speaking of Max, I had a chance to preview his new DVD set, Simple Lead Guitar. It has a bunch of great concepts and information on becoming a better lead player. Even if you have not done much but want to, it will take you in the right direction.
And then, speaking of new directions, Sandy embarked on a new career as a bass player. We managed to capture some of her first lesson on the bass as a Fly On The Wall this week. There are a few good fundamental tips on bass playing in there.
It was cool to see JimC’s rendition of the old Jim Kweskin Jug Band tune Mobile Line. It brought up a couple interesting trivia questions. Neither of which should be too hard if you are old enough…
On another front, it is seeming unlikely that we will be able to get enough interest in IGC Europe for 2016 unless a bunch of people come out of the woodwork soon. We may turn our energies toward the East Coast instead, possibly in early 2017. Let us know who might have an interest in that.
Otherwise, a little John Renbourn favorite at the end and we are on to next week.
