4 Amigos Guitar Show

4 Amigos Guitar Show

This weekend I’ll be checking out the 4 Amigos Guitar Show in San Rafael California. Hopefully I won’t buy another guitar (I think three for a beginner is more than enough).  However, I don’t have a solid body guitar and would love to have one. I know my two weak points will be a nice Gibson Les Paul or Fender Telecaster.

For those in Santa Monica/Los Angeles, the show will be arriving near you the following weekend.

First Jam Session

Allman Brothers

A friend of mine recently took up the bass, so we decided to get together and jam. I hate even using the word “jam” since it implies we knew what we were doing. After fiddling around for  about a half hour not exactly sure what to play she suggested Sunshine Of Your Love since she knew it and the guitar intro is pretty simple. However, even though the song is simple (the brief bit we played anyway), it took us more than a few tries before we both played it without mistakes.

Guitar Aficionado

Guitar Aficionado

I just discovered a new guitar magazine at the book store (it’s on the premier issue), Guitar Aficionado. Guitar Aficionado isn’t a typical guitar magazine like Guitar World. This magazine is more a lifestyle magazine who’s main hook is guitars and their collectors.In additional to articles on a collectors and their guitars you’ll see articles about high end watches, fashion and automobiles. You won’t find much in the way of music theory or tabs like you’ll see in other guitar magazines, at least in the premier issue. And that is fine with me. I love guitars, so getting a look into the collections of others is welcome… although it does make me envious.

Stars & Their Guitars

I watched a cool documentary last night called “Stars & Their Guitars.”  It’s a great look at the history of the guitar and the guitarists who play them.  The focus was on Gibson, Fender, Rickenbacker and Gretsch.  The documentary wasn’t just about the guitars, there was a lot of great insight into playing buy some impressive players as well.  Check it out if you haven’t already.
