  1. Trey Hensley and Rob Ickes can put on a great 2-person show. They have a new album coming out October 4 with blues in mind (or at least their version). Heard them perform in a Frankfort, IL this past week at Down Home Guitars and they rocked the place. The beautiful guitars on display weren't half bad either! I have heard Trey's electric and this acoustic version of the great SRV tune. Enjoy.
  2. @matonanjin A dissenting opinion is always good for the "Collective Soul" 😜 I've seen TE several times and it is always impressive to watch him perform at such breathtaking speeds. I really love to listen to Joe Robinson perform as well. Bryan
  3. @matonanjin I tried a David Grier album "Freewheeling" after an article that appeared in Acoustic Magazine...fun to listen while relaxing on the patio. Bryan
  4. Hard to call which of my acoustics are the best...I have different wood combinations, sizes, and different luthiers. Pardon the pun, but they all manage to "steel my heart"! I must refer to Stephen Stills again when he penned, Love the one you're with. Enjoy the ride, Bryan
  5. Sounds like a great topic for a Live Lesson... Bryan
  6. Thanks Randy. I got an email today on a similar training idea from BGU. There's a video, a cool flashcard tool, and a link to get all of the box shapes in one place. I'm hoping it will free me from the mundane aspect of the boxes and allow "seeing" the notes I need. Hope it helps, Bryan https://is-tracking-link-api-prod.appspot.com/api/v1/click/5761558557229056/5430450314018816
  7. Opie, I will miss your videos as well. I'm with Diane, my picture on the left is taken from your work. Let's hope everything goes well and you'll be in great shape to return next year! Our thoughts are with you. Bryan
  8. Funny stuff! 1. 7 Things you can do with a capo when not playing a guitar. BONUS: Buy 2 styles of capo and we'll DOUBLE the things you can do. 2. Granite coated plectrums - the "slickest" pick for those intricate bluegrass tunes. Enjoy the ride, Bryan
  9. @Triple-o I think standardization is a problem in the industry. Greg really tries to seek technique that anyone can implement to achieve high quality setups. Take into account where he practices his trade, I'll listen when he speaks! I've have good results following his setup course on my acoustics. Bryan
  10. Doug. I think Triple-O is referencing Scales Mastery Intermediate Level of Steve Krenz. For instance, the C scale he plays: C E D F E G F A G B A C B D C (easier to play than to spell out). He then reverses the pattern: C A B G A F G E F D E C D B C (backwards is a killer to spell out). 🤔 He does this pattern with all of the scales in the workout. Bryan
  11. https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/i-love-you-much-too-much-sheet-music-for-guitar-digital-sheet-music/20162297?narrow_by=Santana+&orKey=I+love+you+too+much&withIn=true Check this out for a tabbed version
  12. I have the X2 and like it. I did notice Sweetwater has them marked down at the moment. 😁
  13. A point to add: Several members have given Southwest Airlines a thumbs-up on being "guitar" friendly in the past. Bryan
  14. @matonanjin A situation that can be EASILY remedied! 🤩
  15. @Triple-o I've purchased two guitars and sold one on Reverb without any problems. I contact/message the seller about things not listed to get a feel of the seller based on their response. I always keep the adage; if it's too good to be true, it probably is. Good luck in your search, Bryan
