  1. That is great, General, keep it going... But it is not much help in the purpose of this thread - for people to teach themselves using downloaded lessons while they can’t leave their house and go to a teacher. BluesKing777.
  2. Well, first you have to spend the $25 and download the lessons, watch the lessons, listen to the lessons and then do it....😎 Here is the sample from another course: And another: So you pay the man, download the lesson and they give you 8-10 songs to learn in each lesson with the aim of getting a good grounding in the style, alternating bass with the thumb going boom chick, boom chick and then adding notes when you get the basic bit. You watch the video, kind of like watching a real teacher, do what he tells you and there is paperwork included with the arrangements of the songs and lyrics for those that like to have it printed for later on. And you can't smell the teacher's bad breath and he can't hit you on the knuckles with a ruler... I put the John Hurt lessons up because they are pretty basic and way more interesting than just learning C chord boom chick, boom chick, boom, crash, bang, ouch, ouch, ouch, ow! BluesKing777.
  3. Good a time as any to get some basic fingerpicking going! Turn your singing/playing into a one man band like Mississippi John Hurt with some alternating bass in ..C! If you want to go back to the beginning, Stefan Grossman Guitar Workshop has heaps of Hurt lessons to download.... no affiliation but I love them!: http://www.guitarvideos.com/Products/guitar-workshop-instructional-dvds/the-rural-blues-of-mississippi-john-hurt#.XoaRcOozbX4 BluesKing777.
  4. We truly are in Dreamland now! How will you get them to make that when they can't seem to do the famous 30s plain black with firestripe L-00? https://reverb.com/item/29636815-gibson-l-00-1938-black Or the famous 30s Tux L-00s? 14 and 12 fret! https://reverb.com/item/29115575-1933-gibson-l-00-tuxedo Instead they come up with a modern spec Blues King in black with a brown guard, modern neck and nut size....when did Gibson ever make a 30s L-00 like that? They really should be running these designs past Mark Agnesi, instead of the marketing department. BluesKing777.
  5. My pawn shop buys - 2002 Gibson J50 and my 2005 Dove cherry were possibly made for Japan. The seller had traveled back and forth to Japan for business, and I am guessing, BUT I have never, ever, ever seen a J50 or a cherry Dove of any shape or size here! I bought the Dove first last year, then went back when the J50 came up for sale later - I was real quick! I hope the guy bought some L-00s there!😎 BluesKing777.
  6. The small body lovers are feeling a bit short changed - so far a LG2 Banner RI but with a skinny nut and a L-00 Deluxe in Rosewood... What about a reissue of the reissue L-00 Legend, Gibson?😒 Or an (exact) reissue of a 32 in Tux! Or an (exact) reissue of a black Nick Lucas? And a banner LG2 with a baseball neck! Or just a plain old 37 L-00 in black with a firestripe guard? Or the 12 fret L-00? etc, etc. BluesKing777.
  7. I found my 2005 Gibson Dove at a pawn shop going cheap because someone wrote on it with texta and the guitar body is heavily worn in places, dove worn off, not a huge lot of saddle left..... It must have been played by someone who only knew "G" or only played open strings or something - the neck is seemingly untouched. Weird. yes but I have seen a local girl singer play like that fronting a band....So the guitar gets all the wear of road use but not a huge lot of play use!!! Go figure. Anyway, a square dread is not my usual kind of guitar - prefer L-00 and 00 size guitars. But it was cheap and it was there a long while and I have never owned a cherry red burst, so...played it, bought it, last year. The ad said it had a 'Baggs pickup'. It is a wonderful full model Baggs Anthem!!! Worth a lot in my neck of the woods. It is tight for my fingerpicking in truth but I have enjoyed the maple! Clear and well spoken! And it is staying because it is great for Neil Young tunes etc, of all surprises. BluesKing777.
  8. Na, been done. See Roy and Trigger. What about a car with...... BluesKing777.
  9. Not one reply? Maybe I need some more guitar lessons? BluesKing777.
  10. Here's a slide instrumental i just recorded on my 1937 Gibson L-0. Change of seasons or sick of me - the action has gone a bit high so - into Open G she goes! I called the instrumental "Mud"... BluesKing777.
  11. Dowel?.. Doesn’t sound correct. Not a Gibson guy, is he? Bit of revenge, hey, hey. It looked straightforward in the video I posted - hand in the hole, undo the bolts, take neck off, change shims to suit the required measurements. No dowell! My 37 L-00 had a neck reset, new fretboard, bridge, everything really. I hope not to go through that too often and I wasn’t even there. A couple others of mine could do with a tweak but they are great slide guitars! The reset took way more than my patience lasted.......the guy in the first video had a neat little EMPTY shop and all the time in the world. My guy has a row of guitars to fix, like possibly 70 last time I was there. BluesKing777.
  12. Well I better put ugly old Doug up to balance things out! Sorry Doug! But you know how it is with this forum here... I have a few of Doug's DADGAD books, absolutely great, but hard stuff. This video was made when the Tonedexter was released. Unfortunately, I think he used guitar and pickup that are not as well known and as easy to compare as Molly's SJ with K&K.... BluesKing777.
  13. Video shows how Molly trains her Tonedexter.... I have been raving about mine for long while now, but I think Molly will persuade you more! BluesKing777.
  14. I play all kinds of small body acoustics and I use Elixir PB 12s on all of them! Love ‘em! But not a lot here like them. Then again, there doesn’t seem to be many small body guitar players on this forum lately. Maybe ask on AGF? BluesKing777.
