Lynyrd Skynyrd Continues on…

Oh my, the reflection of this band brings goosebumps. It’s great to see these cats [Lynryd Skynyrd] in continuance! Some may had departed in their plane crash but a powerful family continues… and, it’s wonderful to see that their lives and music ‘expands’! …

Lynyrd Skynyrd 2014

(by: the Sydney Morning Herald/Martin Boulton)

For some musicians, retirement is not an option. They simply want to play … and play and play. In 1977, just days after the release of their fifth album, Lynyrd Skynyrd had no choice about disbanding following the deaths of singer and founding member Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines and his older sister and back-up singer, Cassie Gaines, in a South Carolina plane crash…

Les Paul: The Lost Interviews…

Les Paul guitars are what legends are made of… From the earliest LP Junior to the classic Standard Les Paul’s, the original electric guitar and the maker thereof has deep roots in music history, to say the least. This article investigates a new book about Les Paul, written by Jim O’Donnell…

Les Paul guitar

(By )

What comes to mind when you hear the name “Les Paul”? Maybe the iconic guitar, launched at the dawn of rock and roll and played by many of music’s most talented guitarists. Or perhaps you think of the musician, the performer, the songwriter – or the man who invented the aformentioned Gibson guitar, multi-track recording and a host of other musical innovations… More Here ->s

Guitar Power Chords

Guitar Power Chords” relating to the Music Dials…

Hi –

Rhythm and chords have always been the popular foundation for all types of music. Power chords are essentially, just 2 (many times 3) of the strongest tonal notes in the key of the song, which creates powerful sounding chords all to themselves.

In this case, by playing these notes as viewed on the Music “Power Chord” Dial, you will immediately find yourself laying down some substantial rock and blues sounds, indeed. Generally, they are played on the lower registered (bass) strings, where they have the most ‘punch’ to them. Read the rest of this entry »

  • We’re Back!… Vinyl Records June 17, 2018
    Not to long ago I talked about the rise and fall of Tower Records and how the vinyl record industry had their days and then essentially died… well get ready because they’re back! Many of you vinyl aficionados already knew this was happening. The fact that pressed records remain dynamically pure and essentially a great […]
  • Recording Music In Your Living Room… June 12, 2018
    Having a studio in your own pad is great feeling. Being able to stroll over a couple of rooms and find yourself immersed in the comfortable surroundings of musical gear is a treat indeed. In an article from Billboard, Country singer, Tenille Townes, did a fair amount of her latest album using her living room […]
  • Gibson guitar company facing bankruptcy February 19, 2018
    If you’re like me you appreciate a good Gibson guitar. My favorite was a 1957 Les Paul Jr. single cut-away with a single P-90 pick up… it was a simple screamer! Now it appears that Gibson is in some sort of financial trouble and could be on the verge of bankruptcy after over 115 years […]
  • Paul McCartney Playing Live… December 26, 2017
    “Some of that natural reverb gets initiated by the stage sound itself, as things get pretty loud up there. Only Wickens wears in-ear monitors, as the rest of the band opts for Clair R4 sidefills and old-school Showco SRM wedges.” That’s a quote from the interesting article that talks about the equipment used on Paul […]
  • Guitar Legend John McLaughlin Retires December 15, 2017
    Jazz-rock legacy of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, John McLaughlin (age 75 at the time of this blog post) is retiring from touring. Many of us musicians have known John as an esoteric monster on the strings. His departure from mainstream songs to introspective nuance has been instrumental (no pun intended) in providing for insightful creative considerations […]
