Welcome to the Acoustic Guitar Community.
We played in and through the 60's - and survived continuing to pick, strum and compose our way through life.

Pete was the epitome of a gentleman, and his integrity and compassion have no equals. Since I learned of his death, I've tried to think of who might fill his shoes, and I've come up empty. RIP, Pete.
I heard Pete in person in the early 60's when he was still very vigorous. He played his 12-string with the triangular soundhole, and "Bells of Rhymney" knocked us out of our seats.
So sorry to see that Pete has left us, but what a life he lived.
I first saw Pete in the early sixties at Delta Collegiate in Hamilton, Ontario. He put on a great show. That was the first time I heard Abiyoyo, a tale I ofte played for my kids when they were little.The last time I saw Pete was at Hugh's Room in Toronto. At 89, he climbed to the stage by himself and stood up for every song. His voice and banjo/guitar chops showed his age, but his song leading skills had not deteriorated at all. The audience included Ken Whiteley, Sylvia Tyson and Gord Lightfoot.
My wife and I have no interest in the televised part, either--and she's a professional musician.
RIP Pete Seeger
The type of music that I listen to is always awarded at a pre-show ceremony. I have little interest in hearing rap, pop or new country. I did watch Paul and Ringo on Youtube, but these are the Grammy winners I would have liked to see/hear:
Best american roots song: “Love Has Come For You,” Edie Brickell and Steve Martin
Best americana album: “Old Yellow Moon,” Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell
Best bluegrass album: “The Streets Of Baltimore,” Del McCoury Band
Best blues album: “Get Up!,” Ben Harper with Charlie Musselwhite
Best folk album: “My Favorite Picture Of You,” Guy Clark
Best regional roots music album: “Dockside Sessions,” Terrance Simien and the Zydeco Experience
Best improvised jazz solo: “Orbits,” Wayne Shorter
Best jazz vocal album: “Liquid Spirit,” Gregory Porter
Did anyone watch the Grammys last night?
If I remember correctly, ANY pair of pants and jeans was supposed to show some ankle. A friend is having a 65th birthday party next month; he wants guests to dress the way they did in the '60s. The trouble is, I don't dress all that differently: jeans, button-down collar shirt, vest. He did tell my wife not to come braless, though (seriously).
