Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up September 14th, 2018
Today I found myself with my first real guitar, a Yairi OM, made out of mahogany. I got it when I was about 12 or 13 and it is still fun to break out every once in a while. It got brought up from the basement yesterday for a young student of mine who is ready for his first steel string. I think he thought I was going to give it to him. I started off with a few random musings that headed into my big lesson of the week, End Of The Day by Al Stewart. I’m sure some of you have followed the thread of requests for this after Dave Nach and I played it at IGC last month.
The other main lesson we had this week was probably even more challenging, Country Boy by Albert Lee. I love the way Max is able to break things down and almost had me convinced I could play the darn thing. So many ridiculous techniques and so little time…
There was also a little continuation of Carol’s lesson where we went into the strategy of Partial Capos. They certainly have a place but not as a quick way to get into DADGAD.
A little time was spent going over the chord progression to Moody Richard. I want to congratulate a couple people on working out most of it, or at least enough to start with.
Something else that I think the TG World should know about is The Guitar League. One of our longtime members, Bart, is starting up a chapter in Phoenix and I will be there as their inaugural Presenter. Check out the info here https://www.guitarleague.com/ and consider joining us if you are anywhere near Phoenix on Tuesday, November 13.
