Howdy all, I need some help on working out a stamp in a guitar. The instrument is a Kay-made Silvertone jumbo, I'm told was made in the 1950s. The number inside, stamped on the back timber reads L7561, then a space, followed by the Model number 618. Can anyone tell me what that first L7561 part means?
Lyricsfreak.com has lots of lyric that you can print.
Does anyone have a good web source for blues lyrics and chords? There doesn't seem to be a lot out there for the blues. I'm talking about the top blues songs from the past mostly - if anyone has a suggestion could you let me know.
Have some new studio audio on the reverb site for your browsing. Let me know how you like. www.reverbnation.com/patrickmcewen
Some good ole blues and slide.
Adam Traum is certainly not steering you wrong. Pick up the DVD or download the lesson Homespun put together featuring Happy Traum and John Sebastien teaching John Hurt tunes. These are two guys who knew him and they do a great job of brining his music and personality to the project. (Personally I think the story Sebastien relates about how his 60's group got its name is worth the price alone - but then I'm not well).
If you go to youtube, there are some old black and white videos of John Hurt playing. You can learn a lot of his fingerstyle just rewinding over and over. I'm wishing he was still on tour.
Mr. Traum speaks the truth. Those lessons are clear & insightful.
Not that I'm biased or anything, but here's a great resource for playing in the style of Mississippi John from Homespun:
Evan and Patrick,
Thanks for the info!
