My 2017 Holiday Greeting Video

Recommended Posts

So, the thread about the maple AJ got me thinking that I should use a maple guitar in my video this year. Actually, I did use maple last year, but it was electric. This year is a straight-up acoustic offering (with some bass and percussion thrown in). I chose to feature my J-185 Vine because it looks so festive, in counterpoint to this year's spare background. I'm no BluesKing or Sal or David Hanners or Anne or Dan or Buck or any of you other supremely talented players and singers whose names escape me, but the sentiment is heartfelt even if my playing is rudimentary and my voice only useful for church singing.

 

Happy Holidays to everyone here. Hope Santa brings you all new picks and strings.

Played on my iPad....

 

 

Fantastic!

 

 

Thanks Red - very well done and a really enjoyable idea.

 

(I feel a bit sad for Yammy the drummer, must be too ugly to put on camera).... [biggrin]

 

Merry Christmas!

YES!

 

Thanks for doing this Red! You have a fantastic voice, and this is superb. I love the crisp sound of your maple. Been waiting for it this year!

 

 

Also, I get the video to embed by editing the link to take the "s" out of the https. But it has to be the full YouTube link and not the abbreviated share version.

 

So for example... this is the url string: "

(take out the quote marks i inserted)

 

Then take out the "s" in https"

 

As such it should embed. let's see if this does it:

Sal, thanks so much for the tip on embedding the video (and for embedding my video in your post). I will give it a try tomorrow. Hope your holidays are fantastic.

 

I actually hadn't taken the J-185 out of its case in a couple years, except to show it to people, so those strings are probably at least two if not four or more years old. I think I got that guitar seven years ago and may not have changed those strings since then, but I thought the guitar sounded pretty good!

Thanks, BluesKing. Praise indeed.

 

Yammy prefers to remain off camera. He doesn't want to corrupt his art with crass commercialism. Or something.

 

Happy Holidays!

Red I must thank you for that. Around here ,at my house, It wasn't officially Christmas until my wife put that song on the stereo,played by the King of course, as we decorated the Christmas tree.

I loved your rendition and your words hit so close as this is the first Christmas with out my wife of 47 years with us.

Merry Christmas Red and Maple never sounded so so good to these ears. After I listened to you I played it on our stereo and all is well Its Christmas again thanks Red.😇

My mom passed just after Christmas last year, and several other friends had loved one pass as well, so loss was definitely on my mind. I'm sorry for yours. It's inevitable that you'll experience some sadness this season, but I hope you find comfort in memories of many happy times, too. Merry Christmas, sj.
