Cantilevered Neck - I am sold

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.

Pat Metheny - Orchestrion... WOW

Not only do students profit socially from music programs, but they also gain academically.

Several studies have confirmed… Continue

Bill Medley, of The Righteous Brothers

Enjoyed the concert with Bill Medley, the rock and roll hall of famer, of The Righteous Brothers fame...He and his daughter, McKenna, put on a great show at the OC Pavillion. One of the members in his band, a 30 year old named Michael Graham, is going to be someone for you all to watch for. Plays like Stevie Ray used to, and has a voice like Michael Bolton...really a talent!

Bill's daughter, 22 year old McKenna, can really bring it as well...not only a beautiful lady, but has the singing… Continue

I've been playing guitar tuned in fourths (EADGCF) for over forty years. It works for every style. The advantages are chord and melodic patterns are the same all over the neck. GIVE IT A TRY--ASK A FEW QUESTIONS.
