  1. Triple O, Do you have a recording of it I could hear? A YouTube video perhaps. If I can hear it then I can probably help you out with what is going on. THanks, STeve
  2. Hey gang, I'm so sorry about last night. Due to some tech problems that we have yet to unravel, we just weren't able to get the stream to connect with YouTube last night. We were all setup, Shane was playing great, cameras looked good, but we just couldn't make contact with YouTube. It was the tech equivalent of inviting everyone over to a big party, but when it came time to let everyone in, you couldn't get the door to open. We ended up recording a great show with Shane Hennessy anyway and will have it edited and up on YouTube in a day or so. I'll send out an email when we get it up. Sorry about the hassle and thanks for your patience. I've already cancelled next weeks show as well until we get this all sorted out. Basically, here's the deal. We're changing a bunch of gear behind the scenes. Pretty much everything, other than the cameras and lights, is being switched out. When it gets working it will be giving you a much better looking 1080p stream and give us a ton more capabilities. Initially, I thought we might be able to change out a piece at a time without any interruption but it looks like we're just going to have to start from zero and rebuild our entire setup from scratch. I went ahead and cancelled next weeks show to give us some extra time to get the new setup working. It's frustrating, but I'm actually relieved that we can just take a couple of weeks off to make the transition. I'll keep you posted and thanks for your abundant patience. Once we get this done, I'm excited that we'll be giving you a much better experience. - Steve

  5. February 19th, 2019 7pm Central Topic: Fingerstyle Travis Picking Guitar with Jonathan Brown! "Jonathan Brown's fingerstyle artistry combines a wealth of musical influences with polished technique and passion to deliver the most riveting and entertaining solo guitar performance I've seen in years." - Dana Bourgeois with Bourgeois Guitars Jonathan Brown is a guitarist/composer/teacher from Nashville TN. He has played on the world famous Grand Ole Opry and been an active member of the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society. Hearing the guitar styles of Chet Atkins at an early age, he was eager to learn the fingerstyle guitar technique. Jonathan has taken the fingerstyle technique and transformed it into his own style of playing that shows a wide variety of influence ranging from jazz to classical. "Jonathan is a refreshing fingerstyle guitarist who I really enjoy listening to. His playing is fluid and effortless with a great sense of swing and groove. Undeniably a great talent" - Brent Mason "Jonathan is an old musical soul in a young person, with the depth of his guitar mentors, the discipline to master the guitar in a rare way, and a young spirit." - Muriel Anderson Jonathan has also been a recurring musician on the hit T.V. series "Nashville" with the Rayna James Band. He is a regular on the Grand Ole Opry and with Aubrey Peeples of the show Nashville. Here are a few videos.... Here's a duet with Brent Mason...

  7. Tuesday February 5th, 2019 7pm Central Topic: Modes & Creating Fills! So, what's the deal with modes? Many guitar players wonder if modes, and their exotic names, are the holy grail of guitar knowledge - the thing that separates mortals and guitar gods. Well, let's look at them. I'll give you a much simpler way of looking at them than typically used. Also, I'll show how and when to use them. Here's a handout for learning modes... Modes An Easier Way.pdf PLUS, I'll give some helpful exercises on spicing up your fills with slides, hammer-ons and pulloffs.

  8. Great question. Using flesh is fine. Nails will add volume and give you some tonal options you wouldn't otherwise have. But, if having nails is impractical for you then don't worry about it. Just use your fingers. The technique is the same either way. Hope this helps! The main thing is to keep learning. - Steve
