Looks like another great event. Sorry to have missed it!

My instructor in college was diagnosed with cts and retaught him myself to play in such a way that it didn't stress his wrists or hands.  It can be done! You just need to listen to your body and eliminate bad habits such as playing w guitar too low, bad posture, etc.

That's a nice little travel guitar, kind of like some of the parlour guitars I've seen. Hope you like the feel and sound of it.

Oh I'm not backing it.  Just window shopping. smile

I think I may do a version of a combination of Mojo's idea and BGD's :   I will lip synch  Willie Nelson, and usde a fake back track from MV   

I will call it - Millie Willie Vannilli  smile

Love this haha.

They actually had a few well written songs.  Just need to make them less cheesy.

Oh I'm doing mv

WIth a tip o' my hat to Russell, I would also like to nominate People Get Ready.

80s: Like a Virgin or Jack & Diane
60s: Like a Rolling Stone or The Weight

Where's March?

Excellent work Roger. You continue to amaze me by getting the most out of biab.  I am terrible with it!

I vote for:

Knee Deep. I've seen Zac Brown live 3-4x. Amazing live show

Jimi Thing. I've seen Dave Mathews live 10x+. Incredible musician.

Wish You Were Here. David Gilmour. Only seen him once. can't wait to see him again.

You're welcome. I wasn't being subtle lol. Just impulsive and thought it was a fun idea. I hope beyond hope that you throw Milli Vanilli into the hat. I have already started working on two of their tunes. smile

Gosh, I'd just have to say pretty much ANY concert would be nice.  LOL!  I've led a sheltered life.  I only saw Milli Vanilli (sad huh?), 4 Non-Blondes, and Billy Joel ... I was under 20 years of age for all three concerts.

My early vote for March SOTM is that we nominate based upon our favorite shows we've seen live and in person. smile

I've found some pups to be mighty louder than others, esp hot single coils. 

I have one guitar I need to throw the tuner on in between songs the buzz is so loud.

1. When you test at home are you running straight into the amp with no effects in line? (Electro-harmonix fx are particularly noisy in my experience)
2a. What happens when you plug the guitar into a different amp, plugged into the same outlet?
2b. What happens when you plug the guitar into the same amp, different outlet (or different location?)
3. Did the guitar tech use the same guitar same cable same amp, or just same guitar?

Basically I would go about eliminating for any other explanation than the guitar before I spend any more money on the guitar. Assuming you've done all of the above, take both the amp and guitar (and the same cable)  to the guitar shop and plug it in. See what happens there.

Comments left on both songs on SC.  BGD would love to hear your take on Mother.

I noodled with it some but failed to get it to a place I was happy with.   Hopefully once work settles down in mid march I'll be able to take another crack.

First thing I do whenever I buy a new guitar is replace stock pots with these.  Good move!

You'll wind up a much better player too.  Think of this as overcoming a plateau.  Like learning barre chords lol.

The winners this month were our stomachs.  We had one of the best dinners I've had in all my time in DC, at a restaurant I've been to 6-8 times.

As usual, I agree with Zurf.

Song two - Amie. For Amies everywhere. Also for Woody Woodpecker. Thanks again Zurf. I had a great time!

Zurf and this Dude playing SOTM number one - Take Me Home, Country Road. And some scotch-induced dialog.

I hope you enjoy it, but not too much. You might have to drive.
