Re: Ain't Misbehavin' - Jazz Standard

Bocephus! Well, can't say this post isn't inclusive. But I won't expect a lesson on "Are You Ready for Some Football." Seriously, though, I just realized that this song would have been great for Hank Sr. Looks like a great lesson. I must shop around for a looper pedal soon. (by the way, there's no l...

Re: St. Louis Blues - John Fahey

I'm doing a deep dive on this song, and came across this. Hadn't known about it 'til now. It's just a short studio goof, but interesting nonetheless.

Re: On The Beat - Episode 523 - Weekly Guitar Video News Wrap Up October 23, 2020

I'm very confused. Duke wrote "Caravan" in 1936. What's this about a tense recording session in the early '60s? Am I missing something?

Edit: Ah, I looked it up. Now I see. I'd never heard of that album. Must now check it out.

I'll Fly Away

This guy's pretty good. The flash stuff (as the Brits say) is a little *too* flash in a couple of spots, but otherwise great. No tab or instruction. I might try some of the little variations he throws in to the main parts. But only after I learn the song. Only decent lesson I could find was one by S...

If you're hot to do something from the Piedmont blues world, my strong vote would be for "I Am The Light of This World." The Jorma version, probably. There are tabs out there, but none of them are quite right. I can sort of play it, but not quite correctly. I would love to know I'm doing it right.

Meanwhile, I'd be totally on board with "Chattanooga Choo-Choo" and other such like.

Re: On The Beat - Episode 518 - Weekly Guitar Video News Wrap Up September 18th, 2020

Really looking forward to "Come Together." I've got "Living for The City in my fingers now. It was pretty much a perfect lesson for me: a serious challenge, but not one I needed months for. I'm also looking forward to some Steely Dan stuff by him. I'm learning that, as much as I love more "open" fin...

Re: Pacing the Cage - Bruce Cockburn

This might be an interesting one, too. I like BNL's version even better than Cockburn's. and it's more suited to an acoustic lesson. Might even make for a good instrumental. And/or include the piano accents and cello solo, a' la "Year of The Cat." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fobdPu10DAI https://...

Re: New Lesson Release - Living For The City - Solo Guitar Arrangement by Bob McAlpine

I'm really digging this one. It's a big challenge, but doable. Lots of fun to play, and it's giving me new skills. Great stuff.

I now have the intro and verse in my fingers. On to the chorus, etc.!
