    One of the best, although the falsetto singing longhairs were just a tad creepy.

    Here's another one that's high on my list (composition/performance/emotion).

    Capricorn signed a lot of significant talent. Here's one of the best bands this label had to offer- live, without pitch correction, overdubs, and session musicians behind the scene playing the tricky parts. (They get into a nice groove about 4 minutes in)



    There's very little fill on either of their first two albums.

    Here's your B3, and a guitar lesson for all of you guitar heros. Of course the only lession here is that you'll never play it this well, ever.

    VTS_01_2.VOB_snapshot_08.36_[2010.10.04_21.55.42].jpgVTS_01_2.VOB_snapshot_08.41_[2010.10.04_21.56.14].jpg

    Notice how Freddie wears his strap. I switched to the right side when my left shoulder started to become uncomfortable while performing. A buddy of mine said he saw a guitarist in Chicago wear it this way so I gave it a try- it felt like I could ram the headstock right through your heart. Perfect.

    The pics above are from Locust Street Days- Milwaukee 1984.

    Ah, yes, that's the kind of stuff my old band used to play when we got into jammin' mode. My old Fender Jazz bass was a real heavyweight, even heavier after I added the big ol' Gibson Humbucker at the base of the neck. I also had a tired shoulder after a long night. So I used three inch wide straps, with a section doubled to six inches on my shoulder. And I had to accent the strap's colors with UV paint so it would glow under our light show's black lights.

    Love your Indiana Jones hat! And is that an SG? Those puppies were pretty heavy too. At least until their neck fell off.:shiner:

    That must have sounded fat and mellow.

    I also had a tired shoulder after a long night. So I used three inch wide straps, with a section doubled to six inches on my shoulder.
    That might have worked, but I like being different, and as I said above, it just felt right.

    And I had to accent the strap's colors with UV paint so it would glow under our light show's black lights.
    You had to do that. Absolutely.

    Love your Indiana Jones hat!
    It was my favorite. Our cat chewed it into smithereens when we left for two weeks.

    And is that an SG? Those puppies were pretty heavy too.
    Light as a feather. A lot lighter than a Les Paul, and noticeably lighter than the guitars before that- '68 Mustang and a '60 L50. I picked it up at a music shop that was next to the optical where I worked in the late '70's. Not much sustain, but my playing style and electronics made up for that.

    At least until their neck fell off.:shiner:
    I was worried about that, along with snapping the cable plug-in, but I played it hard, knocked it around some, and all's well. It's stock except for the back pickup (a Dimarzio with a single coil switch).

    You might like this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTHgr19CaRk

    This was during my progressive rock period so I passed on Fairport.

    Check this out- live, one take, lots of talent here. Very few bands today would make it past 30 seconds without choking, even with outside help.

    Yeah, that's a gold mine. I'm guessing this is before his razored notch in the front of his hair.

    I want one with him in his flower suit!!

    Ok, this is not old, but new. It's a video of an amazing 17 year old British girl guitarist.

    How about some old Shawn Phillips?
    I'm in negotiations now for him to do an in-home concert.

    Never heard of him. Apparently I'm not the only one. What a biography though- he sang on the Beatles Lovely Rita! I liked the song you posted (no live performances?), especially the keyboard and vocal. I'll look into his other work. It's always exciting to discover new music!

    Here's an interview from Modern Guitar...http://www.modernguitars.com/archives/003102.html

    I'm in negotiations now for him to do an in-home concert.
    You're producing? How does a home concert work, live stream pay-per-view or recorded in the living room? Regardless, all of the comforts of home.

    She'll still probably sound like this in ten years. No formal training obviously. What's wrong with her little finger? Not that you have to use four fingers to be a great guitarist.

    Here's a live performance of his epic Early Morning Hours. The guy can really write some great lyrics.


    As for the home concert - it is just that. He brings a portable Bose PA and his guitars and sits down with you in your living room and plays for two hours. We can record this concert however we see fit. I'll have to show him my old, super modified Suzuki classical guitar.

    Sometimes it just works though, then it can be great.



    Check this one out, it's my favorite song by him.



    Here's the lyrics:


    Hie Away

    Tongues are rattling and multiprattling, the thanatoid elite
    That call the noisome, remorseless horsemen, we pray they into sleep
    For when they're riding there is no hiding your face

    Instant ambrose for distant decades, the same must speed relief
    For tolls too briefly the sounds of mercy
    I shall not hie to grief
    In fear we ponder the use of thunder for peace

    Moving rages divide the phases converging toward belief
    That's being proven in all its union, there is no more retreat
    And blind delusions maintain illusions too deep

    Now flows the hour of cringe and cower, the strong become the weak
    Negate your power and all to flower,
    In pain we all are meek
    In light beholden the ages golden we seek

    C'mon now, when's the last time you heard the word thanatoid in a song?
