Something Cool to Learn

Recommended Posts

Nick, on the actual youtube clip in the comments there is some discussion on the guitar. Someone says it is a "16" Euphonon"...never heard of that...haven't googled yet...but it sounds great, those bends!

Ah! There are several people here with a lot of experience with "Chicago-school" guitars, and one of them will surely chime in.

The Euphonon brand were built by the fairly well-known Larson Brothers who also made guitars with the Prarie State name as well as harp-guitars for the Dyer Company. Very cool guitar and highly regarded by players and collectors alike.

It looks like the black sheep of the Gibson Country and Western family who spent too much time hanging round with the Martin OM-42 gang.It's Badass! as they say in uncouth luthier terms.

Thats awesome, its all timing and feel, and that only comes from experience, plus a bit of genius helps too !

I noticed on the Youtube comments there's 1 dislike. Really? haha....makes me feel not so bad about the dislikes I get on my own attempts of video immortality [biggrin]

I just saw him playing this song a few weeks ago!

 

 

 

(Except he played his Stefan Grossman signature Martin.....)

 

 

 

He plays it in Dropped D Tuning normally, and it is a cornerstone piece in a series of blues studies derived from Lonnie Johnson's playing. (Who plays about 999% in Dropped D Tuning).
