      I seriously think someone picked 4 random names out of a very large hat and said let’s make a song they all can be on. That was random as sh*t and awesome.

    Tryin to make some sense of my New Telecaster...(always have wanted me one),... situation called fer a Tele to record some tracks in session...
    Thought mebbe I'd look to Th Expert, fer some guidance...Help me, Roy!
    Video won't lemme embed it, so let's us try this here workaround...

    Great! Now, I feel even dumber than before, if that's technically, medically even possible.......

    Anyhoo, here's a few candid snaps of one of my newest additions to th guitfiddle family:

    Feels summat foreign, after an Entire Lifetime of Stratocasters, but mebbe in a Good Way...I dunno, jus yet...

    Time will tell...who th Hail am I to second guess McKinley Morganfield, an Keef, after all????

    Reckon I jus need to learn my dang ol self a whole whoppin buncha Tele Fu...

    It worked fer th tracks in question, but there's still bout eleventeen hunnert layers of nuance, an capabilities to be discovered, by my best reckonin...

    Wish me luck, yall...

    Couldn't help but post some gratuitous shots of my (also new) 2SB Strat; she's also a Master Blaster, n feels jus right, when I close my eyes, curl up my toes, an let er RIP...

    Balance, I reckon, is important, in one's Life lol

    Some New Stuff can be good, averse as I am to change, but in th Long Run, I most often tend to dance with th one what brung me... After 40+ years of Castin Strats, even my feeble mind starts to sense a pattern...

      Yup, I remember seein my first Streamliner; hail, we still had a few local freights what was steam, when I was a youngun..
      Puttin a penny on th tracks was always prerogative, after one hiked, or biked alla th way to Henrietta Depot..
      Platform had posts up so close to th train tracks, they had grabirons bolted to em, so th fast passenger trains wouldn't suck ya up underneath em, my Ma said (She grew up there, from th '30's)

      ...Never lent much creadence to th Vacuum Train Effect, til one day, I was alla hangin out at Henrietta Depot, an a BN Streamlined passenger train come through, rollin like thunder, an highballin like a banshee.
      Now, me, bein jus a simple country boy, was as close to th dang dang rails as one could be, without standin on em...
      An, yup, I had to grab me some grabiron, or it'd a sucked me right offa that platform, an into th ginormous meat grinder...
      Always have LOVED me some trains...

      Well here is a first. Ozzy has released a song about the dangers of drug abuse. And for a kicker Slash is playing guitar on it.

        To all the musically minded brothers in here. Saw a documentary on Rick Kelly the guitar builder and his shop, Carmine Street Guitars. If you can find it, check it out. He uses wood from 100yr. old torn down New York buildings. Man, some damn nice work. Mr. Bones he has a soft spot for teles.

        In the video linked by ComfortablyNumb, Jack Pearson references Wes Montgomery. When I lived in Indianapolis about 30 years ago, there was a jazz club called The Place to Start a few miles from my apartment. On weeknights when they mostly had local acts, it was easy to get a table. I used to go hang out, eat fried food and listen to music - usually by myself because my friends thought it was a sketchy neighborhood. That same neighborhood was where Wes Montgomery used to play.

        Even though Wes had been dead over 20 years, he was still remembered as a legend and some of the local guitarists would shout "Wes!" at the end of every song they played. One guy who had known him told the story that Wes was completely self taught from listening to other musicians and trying to copy their sound, but without any musical education or formal training he ended up developing his own completely unique style in the process. But it took years - working manual labor all day and staying up all night playing guitar. Anyhow, that's the way I remember it.

        That old dive closed right around the same time I moved away, but within a couple years it was reopened under new management as a more upscale place called The Jazz Kitchen.

          Funny you brought that up. I was quite impressed how JP transitioned from blues to a spot on Wes Montgomery. I was introduced (musically, not personally!) to Wes back in the 70's by one of my grandfathers who was a big fan.

        Simply a masterpiece of music. I have been on a heavy Floyd kick as of late. Animals always makes me feel great. I could listen to this album all day, everyday.

        "Dogs"

        And now some good clean fun from Nokie Edwards.

        This might seem like a strange comparison, but it reminds me of Keith Richards. I only saw the Stones live once - Voodoo Lounge at the Hoosier Dome in 1994. While Jagger ran sideline to sideline nonstop for a few hours, Keith never moved. He stood there smoking, and then sort of realized it was time for him to play. So he put his cig on the headstock and played amazing riffs while appearing to be in a coma, then woke up and stated smoking again.

        That effortless talent is what this reminds me of.

          Thanks to Mr. Bones I have a new hobby... finding every Jack Pearson video I can. I've considered Eric Johnson the most complete and technically proficient guitarist I ever heard. But he might drop to second place.

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

          the good one grill

          The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

          Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

          masterbuilt gas smoker

          Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
