Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up May 29th, 2015
This week a couple of my students were working on using a thumb pick so today’s News started with a little messing around with one, as used in Big Bill Broonzy’s Hey Hey Baby. Muting bass notes made me realize that I needed to change strings and made a bad decision to try to change them while rambling on. I guess I forgot to fire up the multi-tasker today so I ended up changing course in mid-stream, with a less than seamless transition.
Somewhere among the thoughts were the usual lesson rundown, comments on Forum threads, IGC electric guitar ideas, and a little improv at the end.
This week’s new lessons included Girl by The Beatles, This Shirt by Mary Chapin Carpenter, the conclusion to I Heard It Through The Grapevine, and a Fly On The Wall with Ed working on Hey Hey. We also released a 5-pack of our J.J. Cale songs.
Instrumentals attempted included Girl, A Whiter Shade Of Pale, Quicksand, and a couple improvs, one bluesy and the other uncategorized in my head.
Back to our regularly scheduled programming soon…
