EPIPHONE

Epiphone has a new model guitar out.   Go here to see it.  It looks a lot like a vintage Gibson parlor guitar.

The Summer has been great.  I’ve learned a lot of new stuff and I hope you have, too.  As Fall approaches, get ready for those fireside jam sessions and enjoy yourself!

GREAT STUDENTS, GREAT POSTER

Wow, it’s been too long.  I have been extremely busy teaching and working with Missing Daybreak.   I am proud to say I have some very impressive and dedicated students who are working very hard.  There is always room for more, though!

My good friend and band mate, JPH, found a neat poster I want to share with you.  Too bad it’s out of print.

Hope everyone is looking forward to Spring and playing their instruments daily.

TIAGO DELLA VEGA

This will open your eyes!

TIAGO

Tiago Della Vega is a Brazilian guitarist. Born in Caxias do Sul, Rio Grande do Sul, he began learning to play the acoustic guitar at the age of five. After a year, he realized that the electric guitar was his greatest passion. He started to study electric guitar, practicing 14 hours a day.

Tiago della Vega played with the bands After Dark and Fermatha. At present, he travels around the world playing and doing workshops. He currently holds the Guinness World Records title as the fastest guitar player in the world, playing The Flight of the Bumblebee by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov at 320 beats per minute.

He plays a custom signature Andrellis 7-string guitar which has 24 frets and a Floyd Rose tremolo, the Andrellis TDV.

MY LATEST GUITAR

I’ve been very busy, but, I want to share my new guitar with you all.  I wanted a nice, economical electric guitar to use at the shop and in my studio for teaching.  I found one and am very pleased with it.  It handles great, sounds fantastic and it’s nice looking.  It’s an ESP H 51 and you can see it here.

I have the electric blue, but, it also comes in red.  I’m having a blast with it.  Next up will be a Deering banjo.  I’ll let you know when that one makes it home.

CHECKING OUT SOME BANJOS AT WILDWOOD MUSIC

Yesterday, we took a short trip up to Coschocton, Ohio, to visit Wildwood Music.  I wanted to check out some Deering banjos since I have played them before and was impressed.  I was looking for something a little less expensive than my current banjo so I can use it for instruction at the shop.

We had a lot of fun browsing all the guitars, banjos and auto harps.   Don and Marty were very gracious and had some great stories from their trip to Elkins, West Virginia.  Missing Daybreak also has some good stories from their visit to  Elkins.  In fact, Something Blue was written there while the Cheat River was rising one night.  Check out WildwoodMusic

LOUD SILENCE

JPH found another cool post for us.  This item would be great for small spaces and where noise needs to be kept to a minimum.  There’s a great video demo that explains it very well.

Go  here  to see what it’s all about.
