  1. We’re all here, and we’re out of the starting gate. Trevecca’s main hall filled once again this morning with three score eager guitarists. With so many new faces around me, introductions spun out one after another. Paulette said there was no one this year from outside the U.S. Steve welcomed everyone, settled us down and called for questions. From the other side of the room I heard: “Steve, is your online moderator Diane here?” With that, any chance of staying under the radar was shot. Our first task was to get warmed up with stretches, then came Steve’s workout with basic chords. Flatpicker David Grier’s masterclass was indeed a class, as he not only entertained us but also patiently explained his techniques and how he learns them. I must paraphrase, but David urged us to play with people who are better musicians, and ask them how they do what they do. Persevere. It can be something simple, but play in time. How reassuring to hear a virtuoso admit, “the simplest things will befuddle me”. With no lunch service on campus, we had to scatter and scrounge. Greg Otto and I followed the GPS-recommended, presumably scenic, route to M. L. Roses — mobbed as usual — but found a table and managed to return without crossing county lines. I hurried back inside, scooped up my gear, and scurried past a crowded room where Collin Hill started up his finger style workshop. Seeking something new this year, I parked in the back of Kim McClean’s session on songwriting. Elsewhere, Greg Voros taught setup and maintenance, and Paulette covered introductory music theory. Steve had about half of us for his blues basics workshop while the jazzers found their sevenths on the second floor with Andy Reiss. We broke into six groups of about ten each for beginner, bluegrass, jazz, and blues jams. My blues group was led by our friend Dino Pastin and his son Vince. We were all skill levels, and I could see we were all having a ball. Bluegrass pro Jim Hurst closed out the day with sincere advice to make your music your own and play from your heart. As I finished a solo dinner, I realized I was about to fall asleep right in my food. Outside I saw road work, and I remembered Kim’s challenge to write a song for tomorrow. Write a song? I could barely chew. But I had an idea. Two words, a title perhaps. I drove back to Trevecca, parked in the shade, sat in the AC and wrote a verse on my iPad. Hardly thinking, I took out my phone and sang it to a melody that came from — wherever they come from. Then a chorus. Recorded that, too. Tweaked the title. Geez, I thought, this is already half a song. Suddenly I was awake. We closed out the night with an acoustic concert featuring master fingerstylists Collin, Parker Hastings, and Joe Robinson. What a first day. Maybe by lunch tomorrow I’ll have a song for Kim.

  2. Around the first turn we go. Steve’s workout exercised the mechanics of picking and strumming. If the morning coffee had yet to kick in, the pot of Bart Walker’s steaming hot blues got us in gear. SRV at ten a.m.? Only at this affair. I strolled with Greg, first timer Liz, and our fellow migrating bluesbirds to the Subway at the front entrance. It felt good to walk around in the warmth — briefly. Liz and I camped at a table in the music building’s loft and enjoyed some leisurely quiet time getting acquainted over our sandwiches. Back in songwriting class, Kim critiqued some raw and finished compositions that had been sent to her overnight. She pitched us an pop exercise straight out of a prose writer’s workshop — two minutes to write seven song titles — 3, 2, 1, go! I managed three duds, a maybe, and a keeper that got her attention. Meanwhile, Steve and Paulette continued teaching theory and Collin had the fingerpickers a-boom-chucking away. Andy Reiss set the jazzers’ axes to “Phrase”, and Jim Hurst mowed down the bluegrass tricks. Kim kept my class running overtime, and I was on a roll, so I lingered until she had to leave. It meant skipping Steve’s worship music class, but my compensation was a blissful, quiet respite in the lounge before returning to Dino’s blues jam. We all piled back into the main room to wrap up with Parker Hasting’s thumb picking masterclass. He’s not quite twenty one years old and already teaches with more clarity and poise than a lot of tenured professors I’ve known. Jim Hurst and his trio entertained us at our evening concert with a sweet mix of toe tappers, ballads, and endearing stories. And his handshake? Warm as the Tennessee sunshine.

  3. I stepped out of my car into a warm, sunny, muggy afternoon in Nashville. On the seat, I saw a glint of blue and green — two picks I thought were already lost. A good omen. With me behind the music building at Trevecca sat only a single blue SUV, but I recognized it as the one that matters. We were back. Paulette greeted me with a big smile and a warm hug. She had already set up the store, organized the goodie bags, and arranged the chairs. The stage was assembled, and Timothy arrived with the ice. Nothing left for me to do. I treaded softly up the steps toward a familiar figure who was tweaking a video message board. “Just make sure I look good,” I said with a smile. Another big hug, from Steve. I left him to his preparations and returned to the rehearsal hall. Others were arriving. Paulette said we were up to 61 this time, along with some spouses. Soon we had about half that number for the meet and greet. We had serious catching up to do over our ice cream. The room filled with animated, excited chatter as the first timers met the old hands — and I suppose that now I fall into the latter group. It’s particularly nice to meet in person for the first time someone you’ve only known through the discussion board. And there are many first timers. Attendance this year is a bit off. There were 90 plus here in 2019. I suspect that the pandemic took its toll on budgets, priorities, and even health. But here, for a few days, anticipation, fellowship, and music will be in the air. We’re already thinking of our guitar friends who just can’t be with us. Wherever you are, tune up and play along with us in spirit. We are back.

  4. Down the backstretch hard, and turning for home. Does Pat Lindgren ever sleep? She had a jam going at 8:30 am when I walked in the door. Eventually they had to stop to give Steve a chance to run his show. We started with a lesson from Steve and Dino on solo improvising. Joe Robinson returned for a masterclass on fingerpicking, for which I afterwards heard only praise for his skill as a teacher. Check out JoeRobinson.com to see for yourself. My noon expedition with Greg in search of the Hattie B’s on 8th street, only 12 minutes away, devolved into a 45 minute loop of central city, two crossings of the Cumberland, an encounter with a funeral procession, and a near collision with an idiot who cut in front of us. He promised to have the GPS app humanely euthanized. Back to theory land with Steve for me. He responds to the phrase “tritone substitution” the way most most people respond to “free dessert”. Enough said. Another new guest artist this year was Scott Bernard, side man to Kenny Loggins. Scott walked us through his pedalboard as he explained how he gets the tone he wants. The gearhounds among us couldn’t get enough. We wrapped with singers Debi Shelby and Peter Penrose demonstrating how guitarists can be proper accompanists. They closed with soaring harmony on a hymn that brought a tear to my eye and the whole gang to their feet. After a short break at my hotel to panic about tomorrow’s song and where to find dinner tonight, I scooped up Liz at Trevecca and executed Operation Tell Greg Where to Go. He was already waiting at the LongHorn when Liz and I pulled up. We toasted our teacher and cheerfully took the rap for each other for Liz’s benefit. Then off to Franklin. On Main Street I had to wait for some tourists to cross in front of me. They looked a lot like David, Keith, and Mark. We parked and strolled towards towards the Franklin Theatre as Greg rolled by, shouting out his window: “Diane! Where did you park?” Operation TGWTG still nominal. The Franklin Theatre is a little gem within a diamond of a town. Poor Liz, sitting to my right: I had not been sitting next to the gentleman on my left for more than five minutes before we were into George Gruhn’s albino snake, Carter guitars, and David Grier. Tonight a full house welcomed the return of Larry Carlton to the stage after a year’s absence for the shutdown. Drums, sax, trombone, keys, bass, and everything of Steely Dan except Donald and Walter. They bid us goodnight; we clapped for an encore. I turned to Liz and shouted, “Well, he has to come back for ‘Peg’”. He did. Liz and I looked at each other and grinned.

  5. I can't add much to what Diane and Greg have posted above. It was a great week of seeing old friends and making new ones. We were able see, hear and rub elbows with some of the finest talent in Nashville. Thanks to Gruhn's, Artisan, North American Guitar, Carter Vintage, and the new Gibson Garage, we saw and played more guitars than we would in a lifetime back home. Looking forward to next year. Below is a link to all the photos I took last week - starting from packing the car to the closing session. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/svwd4aeu4lpob35/AAACnryfaU3BwSUFb2hkIEcna?dl=0

  6. Thanks Diane for articulating so well , good memories for me and and other attendees, as well as for the whole of The Guitar Gathering community. It is such a special time for those that can find opportunity to visit Nashville and share treasured moments with so many like-minded and wonderful enthusiasts of all things of guitar learning. Every year I expand my friendships with more and more faces and names to look forward to seeing again in 12 months. It is a joyous time for me as I hope it is for others who attend as well. I thank Steve, Paulette, their family and Trevecca University for giving so much of themselves to make this happen . As I do every time I go to the annual event, I encourage anyone who wishes to spend an uplifting , entertaining and inspirational musical experience and fellowship to consider attending the GG conference. It is one of life’s highlights for me. Greg

  7. On to the finish line. It’s Showcase Day, which means I wear my heart necklace with the music note on it. Steve’s workout was a short pentatonic lick in various keys. To my dismay, I noticed that even after some warming up, my fingers were not cooperating. Wake up, little Susies, I muttered, we gotta get to work in a few minutes. We scattered the chairs and music stands and clambered around the stage for Chuck Thompson to take the group photo. A dozen exposures and twice that number of wisecracks later, it was snack time. Now, for any teacher’s favorite moment: seeing his students go for it. The Student Showcase hour featured a dozen first timers and old hands alike. One could sense everyone in the room silently rooting for their friends on stage. I like to watch Steve watching us. He simply glows with pride. When I leaned into the microphone for my first line, it sounded like someone else singing, someone better than me. My fingers were still sleep deprived, but as I looked out on the faces before me, including Steve’s, that didn’t matter. Applause and cheers for all. The heartfelt hugs. Once more, the clang of chairs stacking, the snaps of cases closing, the calls for just one more picture. The cars and trucks coming to life, ferrying away the guitars and the memories. Later, Greg, Pat, and I rendezvoused back in the parking lot — my usual tactic — for a night at the Opry. We scored center seats near the front for Ricky Skaggs, Sara Evans, Vince Gill and others on Bill Anderson’s 60th anniversary with the Opry. The house was packed and appreciative for the occasion. Finally, even we three die hards had to part. One last check to ensure the lights were off, and no stray picks were left on the sidewalk. Then our triad arpeggiated into the Nashville night.

  8. I mentioned above we are moving and the new home has a music room/studio/man cave that is huge. This is it! This was shot before the move and I would be too embarrassed to show it to you now. But it is mine!!!! All mine!!!!! 😉🙃 It is a shambles with boxes everywhere. But I hope that I can show you an organized practice room in the near future. @DianeB is helping me with that by PM. Thanks Diane! Practice has been almost non-existent the last couple months. But, hopefully, in the very near future I will have no excuse. And, I took a Zoom lesson with @Steve Krenz recently (before starting the move). Predictably, it was hugely helpful and educational. Of course it was! And I purchased 4 more lessons. So with the great practice space and lessons with Steve I am going to have no excuse to not progress and finish up L&MG!!!!! Finally.

  9. well I tried to get this done for the June Challenge. but didn't work out. You have two choices.. you can listen to the no vocal version or add lots of ear protection and listen to the vocal version. This is out of Steve's Song Hits.. Session 5 if you will.. there wasn't much in the way of rhythm track to the song, so I ran the melody mostly on the neck pickup of a Epiphone Sheraton semi-hollow, the solo (I must come up with a more inventive solo idea) was switch to the bridge pickup and yes.. is "just" the melody played in the 12th position. it was a mix of mic'ing the speaker and since I run a very loud 30w tube amp, I have an attenuator on it that has line out .. so the lead is a mix of the two types of inputs.. speaker and speaker emulation. the rhythm track was done on my acoustic straight in to the mixer. last was my Dean Edge 4 bass to give a little more bottom end.. (if your ears are bleeding.. don't sue me.. you were warned about ear protection)

  10. Dear guitar friends, I'd like to try out a new format for our recording challenge. So far it has been monthly, but lately we have usually had only a few submissions per month. Therefore, I would like to change the interval to quarterly. So from now on there will be a summer (July-September), fall (October-December), winter (January-March) and spring (April-June) recording challenge. The number of entries allowed per participant is no longer limited to 1. You may submit as many songs as you like. We will still draw 1 winner per challenge, who gets to pick the theme for the next challenge. Everyone is free to follow this suggested theme, but you may also submit any song of your own choice. For this summer, we will start with the theme "Blues...or any other song you like". Looking forward to hearing you play, Wim.

  29. @DianeB I'm sure that @QuietlyBold appreciates the pdf on setting up a home studio. But so you know, I also appreciate it. I haven't shared on here the fact that my wife and I are moving after 41 years in the same house. We are "moving to town" as the expression goes (in the rural community). I won't go in to the significance of the expression. It means much more than just changing mailing address. But because of the move, which occurred last Friday, I haven't been practicing and probably won't for another week or so. But............. the new house has a room that is huge and is going to be solely Ron's studio/music room/man cave! so I am interested in any suggestions for making it an ideal practice space. Thank you!

  30. @QuietlyBold Welcome back! You're probably still finding your way around the new neighborhood. Here is Steve's piece on setting up a practice space. Attached below is a 2015 booklet from DiskMakers on setting up a home studio. I hope these can get you thinking. home-studio-handbook.pdf

  33. @Wim VD1 sounds good slow acoustic blues. Sounds like blues, I bought Chris Buono's Guitar Lab Blues solo ($5 on sale) doesn't sound bluesy to me, I'll work and learn best I can from it, but certainly not making me a good blues player, This blues Fingerstyle course sounds like it's doing that for you

  34. Im looking forward to the day I have a dedicated studio space too... Plenty of good suggestions here, so you should do well. For recording gear (as Doug said) I bought the Focusrite Scarlet 2i2 combination kit, with the interface (2 channels in 2 channels out), a good set of over the ear headphones, and a microphone. All great stuff, and the worlds top selling unit. I comes with a raft of "plug in's" (recording software) and all you really need. You'll need to select a DAW, (Digital Audio Workstation) to record this, and after "demo-ing" a few, I settled on REAPER. It's a free to try program with a "sugested" license agreement (not expensive). There are lots of videos on YouTube to show you how to record with it. It''ll take a while to learn, but you dont need to know everything to produce a decent recording. Recording yourself is a HUGE leap forward, and I strongly recommend it to ANYONE, regardless of skill level. You can hear what you acutally sound like and work on your skills, and playing songs. You dont HAVE TO share it if you dont want to... Good Luck and Happy Tunes; Neil

  36. Well I don't know about the space, but you should definitely invest in an audio interface, DAW, and maybe a microphone. The interface should have at least 2 inputs. Mine has 2x2, but you can only use 2 channels at a time. You can also get a free version of Pro Tools for you DAW. Pro Tools First doesn't have all the tracks of the full version, but it is more than capable of recording quality guitar tracks and a lot more.

  37. Thanks @DianeB. Yes the space is already sacred...trying to next level it but its a small space! I checked Steve's post and will make sure any mods I make to the space satisfy those tenets. It sounds like my ideas for the space are headed in the right direction. @matonanjin i wish I had a big space. That's great! I also learned a lot from articles on sweetwater.

  40. I am guilty of too many amps, digital and tube, including boutiques. That said, the Yamaha lunchbox is my "throw in the suitcase when I go out of town" amp. It's been to the Gathering 3 times . It is a fun little practice amp and is so convenient to traveling with. It also gets more playing time than most of my tube amps. My throw in the car for a quick jam amp is a Roland Cube 60 watt, that I bought used. It is a workhorse, seemingly indestructible and actually desirable from some of my musician friends for these reasons. Knowing its versatility, I would think the Roland Street Cube would be a similar type amp for a beginner. I currently use a Kemper or Fractal Ax8 for band play, not advised for beginners. I have also been exposed to the Sharp amp and my conclusion is that it is the absolute best beginner amp for features, tone and cost. It is not on this years top 14 amp list , but I will bet it easily make next years. Greg

  44. This one is based on a Tommy Emmanual Travis picking lesson on TrueFire. I brought back in a bit of The Animals for the intro and tried to make my guitar sound like a mandolin in the end . It"s the first recording with my new Fender Paramount PM-2 Parlor Mahogany. It"s a nice small short scale fingerpicker with the neck joint at the 12th fret. Great guitar for fingerstyle blues. Wim.

  45. We’re less than 7 weeks out, so I will pass along some advice from the past and the latest developments I’m aware of. If this will be your first Guitar Gathering, I recommend reading the threads from 2019 and prior years. I’ll repeat myself a bit here. The Conference: In every room, we’ll be surrounded by rows of chairs. An acoustic is probably more versatile for the workshops and jams. If you want to play your electric in the student showcase, there will be cables, amps, microphones, and a professional audio system. The main room will be locked and secure when we’re not there, so you can leave your gear. Make sure your guitar cases are well labeled; there will be a hundred black cases lying around -- in a black room. Other than the obvious (picks, tuner) I recommend bringing: pencils and a small notepad, business cards, a folding guitar stand, and cash for lunch, Greg Voros' setups, and other incidentals. I also pack sticky notes, staff paper (theory geek), my chord block stamper, foot rest and a small seat cushion. Trevecca has music stands. If you have a specific brand of strings you want Greg to use, bring them with you, otherwise he will use D'Addarios and you might not have a choice of gauge. Steve will have items from his GG store on display for sale. Trevecca: At this writing, Trevecca will not have food service on campus. Steve says their contract does not permit outside caterers or food trucks, and he is still exploring our options for lunch. The Trevecca website presently indicates “normal campus operations” but exactly what this will mean for us in July is unclear. There is no on-campus housing this year. The conference is held in the Jackson music building at the back of the campus. It has ample, secure visitor parking. Get your bearings with the campus virtual tour. A few scenes of the Jackson building are near the end of the video. Housing: Steve has secured a conference rate of $105/night at the Holiday Inn Express Brentwood about 15 minutes away. Express-style breakfast is included. Use the conference code of GGC when you book online, or call the hotel directly at (615) 221-5001. I just called, and there are plenty of rooms in our block, but I recommend making reservations ASAP, because we will be in town during Summer NAMM and hotel occupancy could be high. There are also a number of other hotel options nearby. Be aware that Nashville can be hot and humid in mid-July, and the Jackson building can be quite cool. In Town: NAMM has canceled the public day, Saturday, for Covid concerns. Sorry, gear hounds. So Steve will probably devote Saturday morning to the Student Showcase, a tour, or perhaps something else. That afternoon I plan to attend the songwriters’ show at 3rd and Lindsley. Tickets are also available for Saturday night at the Grand Ole Opry, which will be at full capacity. A few weeks in advance, Steve will e-mail the registrants with a survey asking: Do you want to reserve a setup with Greg? Can you help with logistics (ride sharing, for example)? Do you want to play in the student showcase? I expect Steve will soon announce a GG 2021 Facebook Group for registrants. So, this is what I have as of May 29, and things can change. Stay tuned. (And in tune!)

  46. Greetings Fellow GG Members; Please note that If you wish to post a You Tube Video for the benefit of the members, I have created a NEW TOPIC; IN Guitar Playing & Technique FOR THIS PURPOSE. So, please post APPROPRIATE videos there! It's hard to believe, but this site is now over 3 years young. It was and is a labor of love for guitar learning. It has grown tremendously in size and content since Feb 2018, with many many thousands of posts in that time. So, time permitting, I'll be doing some house cleaning. Please don't be offended if you see one of your old posts deleted... we just have to make some room here and keep things somewhat tidy. Cheers; Neil @NeilES335

  47. First of all, welcome and I'm glad you're here. When your hand is doing something comfortable and familiar there's no need to tense up. But when you start getting to the edge of your ability and your hand can't keep up with what your brain is telling it to do, it starts to tense up. There is always going to be this increasing muscle tension as you approach the edge of your current ability. The good news is that the "edge of your current ability" moves. What is causing you tension and stress today at a certain tempo you may be able to play completely comfortably in a few months. Tension is always something we want to minimize in our playing. We need to be ever aware of it and constantly try to consciously relax our hand as we get into musical territory where it wants to tense up. Just keep working at it slowly. As you become more familiar and competent at doing the task at increasing tempos your hand will relax. Hope this helps! - Steve
