  1. Henk- Congrats on the new Eastman. Let us know how you like the playability and tone! Mike
  2. Mandy- Thank you for your time, energy and the spirit of learning. I agree, a format to record and share is a win, win for the artist recording and the students who get the benefit of learning from others. Great job and thank you. Take care, Mike
  3. I am surprised that this would even be a question among musicians! 🙃
  4. Hey Henk- Thanks for the view. Amazing to watch how much he has going on. I have a hard time with one guitar, my left hand and right hand doing what they are supposed to do and real lucky if my foot stays in time!
  5. I am always looking around for music and artist that catch my ear and make me stop and listen. Not just listen, but really hear, feel and be moved by their music and talent. I came across such an artist today- Reinhardt Buhr. I know that his music is not for everyone, but I was so impressed by his musicality, expression, composition, timing, obvious instrument playing music talent (instrument choices) as well as his ability to improvise, play, sing, record, loop all while improvising and entertaining live! The music may or may not be your taste and style, but just watch the video and see

    Guitar Gathering 2021


    Let the planning begin. Called doctor today to check on vaccine availability and scheduling!
  7. Congrats on your new ES-335. I love mine. Enjoy!
  8. Mike- Congrats on the new Taylor E14ce. Such different grain on the back- beauty! Play and enjoy!
  10. Mandy- I am so sorry for your loss. No words can express enough comfort. I can only say that I have lost loved ones and it hurts so bad. Know that your Guitar family grieves with you and for you. My grandmother always told me, "to feel pain is to know you are alive"! I know in your heart and soul, you have so many great memories to travel with you and keep you company! When you arrive at a place & time in this season, remember, "that without music, life would be a mistake! (I'm not sure who said this, but I wrote it down sometime during my guitar life). Reach out, we are here for you!
  11. Good history lesson Doug.
  12. One of my favorite players has passed away, Mr. Jerry Jeff Walker. I was privileged to see you play in a small venue in S.F. back in the 70's and it was so much fun. Mr. Bojangles was one of the first five songs I learned on the guitar. I will miss your life here on earth, but your presence will always be with us in memories and music. Thank you! R.I.P. Mr. Bojangles!
  13. Congrats WIM..........I have the course and played around with the first few lessons. Trying to wrap up all the misc material I have wandered off in the weeds with. Got to get back to a tighter structure.

    Thank you Triple-o...........I enjoyed the presentation off the modes staying in C as he started with the major and went through each modal change. Seeing him tie in the major triad with each model scale and movable scale shape up and down the neck helped glue this all together for me. Thanks
  15. R.I.P. Eddie Van Halen............ a musician ahead of his time. One of many talents that pushed the outside of the envelope of rock music. This level of talent only come along in any discipline rarely! Your music will live on forever!
