  1. So I know that over at dead.net they have the complete Europe 72 release, which is already sold out! But who here appreciates the 1972 Grateful Dead material here? I think the dead in general have a great vibe and that run from early 72 in Europe is just the peak of the creative and fun process of making music and touring the country. I would love to have been on that tour. Too bad I dont have 450 bucks and they are sold out.
  2. Indeed! I would never spend that much on a guitar to begin with, but your right. It just looks bad like that. I just like the idea of having a solid rosewood neck....
  3. I kinda like what they did with the neck on this one. Rosewood Neck Masterbuilt Fender Custom
  4. Ken Bebensee Found this person making these guitars, I would love to get my hands on one just to see how they play. What do you think, I kind of like the hollow bodies they make.
  5. Summer has to be the best time of year here in Arizona. Yes its over 100 at night, and add some flames to that, steaks, corn, beers and good music. I love summer
  6. It is supposed to rain tonight and maybe tomorrow, I just finished up grilling some chicken and corn on the grill and it was perfect timing. It started to rain just as the chicken finished, Its nice to see some precipitation in this side of the world for once. Im still holding off washing my car for another week or so just in case.
  7. I was here for it as well. I had my keys in ready to goto the store, opened the door and took one look at that 4000 ft wall of dust and dirt, and said, well I guess im going to the store tomorrow. It was pretty cool, ive been in only 3 or 4 of them so far. Lucky there was no damage.
  8. I'm really digging how thin this is. Im guessing with the right equipment setup you could get some controllable sustain that could last for a while! Big fan, would love to find one.
  9. Got my copy, and have been listening to it a lot! I really dig Simple Things, and Come See About Me....really the whole album is good. I hope they do another one sometime in the near future.
  10. Brats, Burgers, Steaks and ESPECIALLY corn on the cob....both wrapped in foil and just on the grill still in the husks. As much as I love to grill I almost have to wait til sundown out here in AZ. It was between 110-115 the past few days and lighting a fire for the grill just was not on my to do list for dinner. I think this weekend its getting fired up though!
  11. WOW! Its been a while since I have really just kept looking at a guitar dreaming how awesome it would be to have this guitar. But for 5K, I dont need it that bad. Maybe it will be one of those "when I win the lotto guitars". What do you guys think? I just love the tonal properties of Koa wood. Koa Custom Shop
  12. I picked up a Squire Butterscotch Blond Tele at a local shop for $70. It was already modified to be a string through, and has a few added holes?? But I gotta say its a fun little guitar for the price. When I get the time I will try to find some noiseless pickups to replace the current ones. Other than that, its setup pretty decently and sounds pretty good.
  13. Tedeschi Trucks Band just released Revelator. Some real nice tunes in that album. It really takes guts and confidence to have two successful working bands and then go into a new project not knowing if it will work or not. But in my opinion I think it was done really well. I also heard it was recorded onto tape like they did it before digital recording. Derek Trucks even holds back a little with the guitar work and lets Susan kind of take the drivers seat in the album. Great to see live if you get a chance! Here are a couple samples: http://youtu.be/VtubiePVpwM
  14. I agree Rocky4...NO PICKS! You have to just keep at it too, never give up., oh and make sure your guitar has proper intonation which can be done with a good setup.
  15. What part of AZ you in? Im in the valley, Mesa area, hopefully your not anywhere near the fires. I really feel for those people out there in Eager and Springerville, have some friends that live out there. Crazy weather indeed nationwide.
  16. Floods of any kind are a bummer. I can agree to the high cost of clean up, not to mention living with industrial strength humidifiers and fans on the floor for a day or two. Hope all is well man and keep your chin up maybe the storm will pass.
  17. So I put my pre-order order in last night, also caught these guys on Leno last night. Derek and his wife Susan have got a great band going here.... Here is last nights performance: Its at the end of the episode like always. Bound for Glory with Derek on what I think may be Duane's Goldtop. http://youtu.be/6-J0WpHXWHM
  18. Wow, got this in my newsletter from Music Zoo caught my attention....dont have the scratch for something like this but its good to imagine sometimes. VOS 59' Orange Drop
  19. I remember taking a cross-country road trip with a great friend after graduating high school and we were in Louisiana and setup in this campsite after driving from El Paso that morning. I remember we had went into a corner store and I just happen to look older than I really was and thought we could try and buy some beers. I think we ended up buying a couple 40's. We got back to the campsite and got pretty drunk off a 40 each, I think it was steel reserve thats why. We ended up chasing lighting bugs/fireflies in this open meadow and jamming on a few acoustics. I will always remember that trip because a few years after that he passed away before his time. I have so many stories from that trip that would really make for a good read sometime. Lots o' drunk adventures on that road trip. But Louisiana was the first time I really got drunk. Another highlight from that trip would be when we were staying at a KOA and got in late and no one was there for us to pay for our campsite. They happen to have a watermelon patch in front of their office and I think we took a few melons and left an envelope with a little extra cash for the melons and our site. We munched on those with a case of Budweiser. Weird combo.
  20. So I came across this artist here that just really surprised me. I usually don't care for a lot of the new artists but Raphael Saadiq is really good. He has that classic soul/R&B sound that Im glad to hear in a new album. His new album is amazing, the one just before it, even better. Here is a good sample...
  21. Michael Bloomfield's father held a few patients in the restaurant business for the glass sugar dispenser with the metal trap door we see in most all restaurants AND the coffee makers too I think. I will have to check those facts for sure but I though it was pretty cool. Random music facts are always interesting. Might not be directly music related but was in a recent Vintage Guitar magazine article on his "lost" 59 Les Paul.
  22. Yes Spirit was some good stuff....the early stuff at least. Taurus is the song from which I think Zep ''borrowed'' the main riff to make Stairway. Another fact...Spirit opened for Led Zeppelin at one time for quite a few shows.
  23. I have to agree, I like Bonnie's the best but I think it was cool that Susan put a little Sugaree into the end there.
  24. So I came across this tune I have not heard in a while. What do you guys and gals think? John Prine's original version, Bonnie Raitts or Susan Tedeschi's? John Prine Bonnie Raitt Susan Tedeschi
