Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up March 1st, 2019


After a weekend of traveling, (through some countryside that is flooding badly at the moment – The Russian River in Sonoma County) we are back at TG Central and grinding away with students and arrangements. Today’s update started off with a John Fahey piece that introduced his music to me when I was in high school. The tune I played a bit of was Beverly, a song I threatened to do a lesson on years ago and forgot about, apparently.

I want to thank the members who managed to get some videos uploaded for review, Eryk and Ken so far but let’s try to keep this ball rolling. I enjoy looking back at some of those old lessons, which I usually need to do to give good feedback on them.

Another theme that came up on the Forum reminded me to give a quick tip on hammer-ons. There was a little discussion that might help but this usually takes a lot of practice so don’t despair.

The other new additions recently included Casey Jones by Mississippi John Hurt, I Want You, I Need You, I Love You by Elvis, Tom Petty’s I Won’t Back Down, Drain You by Nirvana, Max’s version of the Jazz Standard All Of Me, The Wings by Gustavo Santaolalla (whose name I tried to pronounce a few times), and finally the solo arrangement of Eye In The Sky, which I somehow postponed almost five years after promising to get to it with the original lesson. We also added a 5-pack of Heart tunes, which inspired me to take a stab at Silver Wheels as I mentioned it. I evidently need to brush up on that one. 

That was the two week recap as we head into March and Springtime for those of us up over the equator. Can that be the Top Of The World?
