  1. Thanks for starting this thread Searcy. I'm enjoying it very much and learning a lot about obscure Gibson models! Hoya
  2. This is my 1981 ES 347 TD. I Saved for months and when I finally received it was in the original box from Nashville. What a thrill! It's got Series 7 pickups which are very hot (15k). This guitar has unlimited tonal options with its coil tap switch.
  3. "The Kids Are Alright" - The Who
  4. "Rainy Days and Mondays" - The Carpenters
  5. Spring cleaning the tackle box in prep for a new season is special thing. Lots of lakes and ponds around here provide relaxing fishing fun.
  6. Make sure you tell your doctors and therapists that you play guitar. It will influence your treatment and add to your recovery! Good luck!
  7. I wish I had a family member to jam with! Sounds awesome!
  8. Man that sounds real good through headphones right now! So can you play it?
  9. "There's No Home For You Here" - The White Stripes "There's No Home For You Here. There's no home for you here girl, go away"
  10. +1 It sounds like he's playing along with a machine!

    I would like to have a tablet on a stand to use for song lyrics and chords. I can play so many more songs and sing the lyrics if I have a "cheat sheet" (like a tablet). Currently I have a 3 inch binder with hard copies of sheet music that often spills to the floor with paper going everywhere! I have the same problem, however, of not having good enough vision to see on the small screen.
  12. You're right Duane. Some of my students don't know how many months in a year, how to change a dollar, etc. Knowing who Paul McCartney is does not rank high on valuable living skills, but for some reason I feel that knowledge of musical pioneers should be part of the curriculum! I presented my class a unit on rhyming/poetry/lyrics and used Dylan and the Beatles as examples. That got the discussion started, but their interest really piqued when I asked them to present their own examples of rhyming and lyrics. That's when the modern Rap lyrics appeared (including Kanye)! I had to put the kibosh on that due to some of the "inappropriateness" of the lyrics for 13-14 year olds. That reminded me that some Beatle's lyrics used to be considered inappropriate!
  13. Hilarious! I teach middle school and you wouldn't believe the number of kids (who claim to be into music) who have never heard of Elvis or the Beatles, let alone the more "obscure" musical artists. I blame the parents
  14. "Take The Money And Run" - The Steve Miller Band
  15. "Ride My See-Saw" - The Moody Blues "Ride, take a free ride"
  16. "I'm Waiting for the Man" - The Velvet Underground
  17. "A Day In The Life" - The Beatles "Made the bus in seconds flat"
  18. "Loving You Sunday Morning" - Scorpions
