Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up March 8th, 2019
This update had quite a bit of playing in it, and not too much information. I need to brush up on a couple pieces for a service I am doing tomorrow and ran through quick drafts of what I need in good shape. These included a couple Beatles tunes that might have gotten a little rusty, In My Lifeand Here Comes The Sun (well one was rustier than the other as there was a lot of improv going on at times). I also had to check out a Pete Huttlinger video where he played On Eagle’s Wings-
Every once in a while the powers that be ask for a ‘religious’ tune and this one fits the bill, although I also use Jesu, Joy Of Man’s Desiring as a back up.
This weeks’ new lessons included The Joke by Brandi Carlile, John Coltrane’s Bessie’s Blues, Sunday Bloody Sunday, and a Fly On The Wall with Sandy starting The Longest Time by Billy Joel. A couple of these inspired me to try a solo off the top of my head with similar mixed results to the Beatles’ tunes. One almost worked and the other needs a lot of work. We also released a new Bob Dylan pack along with everything else, Volume 2 from Bob.
I mentioned that I am looking for Irish or Celtic requests in honor of St. Patrick’s Day coming soon, I mentioned a couple that came to my mind but the memory fails me at times nowadays. So if all goes well over the next 7 days (and I don’t forget to get to it) I will return next Friday to check in.
