    The one that got away

    65 or 66 bassman. I’m not sure if I sold it in the early 70’s or if I kind of let a band mate keep it. I’d like to have it now but wouldn’t want to lug the 2x12 cabinet to gigs

    Ever Had a Bad Day Onstage?

    Well, at the gig last weekend I started "Spooky" in Em, but the rest of the band was in F. The chart said E but I guess I didn't get the memo that the singer wanted F. As a church organist for over 40 years I had my fair share of off days. Nothing like screwing up a favorite hymn while a...

    Power outages

    Power outages happened to us several time a year in North Virginia. The usual cause was from trees falling over power lines due to snow or winds.

    Your First Amp

    Lafayette around 1965. Perhaps made by Univox? 12" speaker, tremolo. Wish I still had it.

    Your First Pedal

    In the mid-60's I purchased a treble booster of some sort. It wasn't a pedal but it plugged into the guitar (Framus) and had a slide switch for On/Off. I was living in Germany at the time and have no idea of the maker. I later traded it for an album of some sort. My first actual pedal was an...

    1960's Harmony H305c: A Great Budget Vintage Amp

    I had a Lafayette (probably Univox) in the 60's that I wish I still had. 12", 2 x 6L6 (I think) Tremolo.

    Mesa Boogie 50 Caliber EL84

    I've got a Studio Caliber DC2. Great but HEAVY! And loud. I used it for a gig this past weekend and it was barely on and still almost too loud.

    A beginner walks up to you and asks... what 5 songs should I learn?

    Gloria Hey Joe. Interesting chord progression. Move it to different keys to learn more chords. Folsom Prison Blues - Cool intro, easy solo When I Come Around - Power chords! Some Oasis tune I can't recall the name.

    Grim gig situation

    Regarding Praise Bands: most of the ones I’m aware of are voluntary and unpaid. Much like traditional volunteer church choirs. Occasionally there may be paid section leaders but the bulk are volunteers. The worship leader or music director is paid. I’m a trained traditional church organist...

    Black Guitars

    Gibson Flying V. I bought this from a friend about 5 years ago. I'm at least the third owner. More fun to play than I thought it would be.

    David Crosby

    Very sad. David was an inspiration to many. If you can find an original stereo version of Bells of Rhymney, David's rhythm part (maybe played on his 6119) is hard panned to one channel. He is tuned to dropped D. It is a great counter balance to the 12 string. One of a kind.

    Guitar of the day

    I keep a guitar close by in my work/music space. Today is it a beat up Tele purchased in pawn shop about 16 years ago. I put Fralin Blues pickup in with a 4-way switch.
