Sometimes all ya gotta do is sliiiiiiiiiiiide!

Hey this is Rev. Matt. Okay all, at one time earlier we have struggled to figure out that one chord and then later on end up kicking ourselves in the butt when we realize...that's all it is! A prime example of this (which was also the same way I found out about this) was when I just happened to figure out to play a B-suspended chord and then slide down toward the headstock on the fretboard. Well anyway not only can i apply that to Open the Eyes of My Heart, I can also…

Flying with My Guitar

Airline flight guitar horror stories are legion, so I thought I'd tell one with a happy ending.

I recently flew from San Francisco to Washington, DC on Virgin America -- yes, the airline with cocktail lounge lighting on its planes, which can be a bit disconcerting at 8:00 am. After a warm greeting from the gate attendant, who blithely waved me on board with two carry-ons, I was asked by a flight attendant to gate check my gig bag, in which reposed my Taylor 612 Kathy Mattea…

Entry level does not have to mean difficult beastie

I started messing around a few months ago on an entry level Gibson Maestro guitar, that was given to me. When I got it, it needed a new 1st string, some new bridge pins just to get it into playable shape. Well I did that, then discovered that Hammerons and Pull offs were just weak to non existant on this instrument as well as slides. So I started closely examining the guitar for ways to improve it.

The Maestro I have has a solid spruce top and mahogony sides and back. Okay…

T. Haruo Model 150

I continue to search for a T. Haruo acoustic guitar, preferrably a Model 150, to replace one that has been lost. Does anyone out there in the Acoustic Guitar Community have any idea as to where one might be found?

Myke (Masher) Barritt - Our Thanks

By now most of you will have learnt that my best friend and music partner Myke (Masher) Barritt has decided to move on and play in that bigger Jam session to which we'll be called one day.



The news came to me very early on Sunday morning, he was supposed, as far as I knew, to be enjoying a weekend in Hereford, but in the event simply did not wake up.



To the numerous questions being asked, no, at the moment we do have a clue as to what caused this sudden death, the Post… Continue

Being barefoot all the time makes it really easy to start conversations with folks. They all want to know if my feet are cold. People in wheelchairs get really nervous around me. Getting to talk to all of the nutty musicians…

Guitar Instruction: The True and the Useful



From time to time I receive books from guitar teachers who want me to read their new method book and give them my estimation of its value. Sometimes they even ask me to recommend the book, and write a blurb for them. I am then put in the position of telling them that I never do that.



The reason I don’t do that is quite simple: I have no way of knowing the value of someone’s guitar method book. It is amazing to me that they are even assuming I could know the value of their book.… Continue
