My First Ray Of Hope About Guitar

I remember the first time I got a solid insight into the truth of guitar excellence, and found a reason to believe that I could become a great guitar player, even though I started late, and was meeting people who were far better than me, and also younger.



I was 21. Samantha was the best player at the Institute where I was studying guitar. She was getting rave reviews at Carnegie Recital Hall playing pieces I was struggling to get through at the time. I was very intimidated every time… Continue

Live Music: What is it Worth to You?

Greetings, Friends and Fans.



After finishing up 2009 with a wonderful tour in Florida I’m home for the next few months, and thought I’d take the opportunity to do a little research regarding live music and its place in our busy lives.

Attention SE Pennsylvania, Delaware and NJ guitarists!

There a new group called "SE Pennsylvania, Delaware, NJ Players" for guitarists in those areas. It'll be a nice communications forum where people can share places to play, where people are playing, meet local acoustic guitarists, share ideas, collaborate, and help and support each other.

Hope to see you there!
John

At "PAPERMOON"

It is the first stage in the Inn strike this year.

At the Mito-city "Paper Moon".

Moreover, it is one-man live!

There seems to be a good thing this year.

I seemed also to have performed by my best and to have strained myself too much by me.



Some.. tunes ..me.. ..the mistake not thought about...

It is the first Live this year tonight.

I perform by the restaurant "Paper Moon" in Ibaraki Prefecture Mito City where I live tonight.

When performing, I use a new preamp.

This preamp was not in major name brands, and those who produced the individual by the living in Kanagawa Prefecture made it.

The brand name is said, "Enfini custom works".

It is a preamp that it is small, and operativeness is good.





"Enfini… Continue

Cantilevered Neck - I am sold

As mentioned before I purchased a custom made Kevin Corcoran guitar recently. One of its features that make it stand up and sing is the cantilevered neck. This guitar is a OM model. The smaller size makes it much easier for me to play. As a female player this is new for me. I have alway bought a larger body guitar because I wanted the booming tone and projection. So a 16 inch bout was always the minimum. This guitar has change my definition of desired sound quality. ..Now I have to say the… Continue

Acoustic Guitar at NAMM – Sunday, January 17 and Wrap Up

We’re back from four busy days at the Winter NAMM show, excited by the fun of our 20th anniversary party with so many industry friends, and by seeing all the new gear that will be hitting the shelves of your favorite music store in the coming months. Overall, the show seemed busier than in recent years and the mood very positive, which bodes well for 2010.
