On The Beat - Episode 388 - Weekly Guitar Video News Wrap Up September 8th, 2017 2 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
Hi everyone,


The Weekly Wrap Up is ready.


Have a great weekend!


blog.totallyguitars.com/guitar-news/tota...-september-8th-2017/





itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/totally-guitars/id519276594


This week I spent a little time playing my friend’s 12-string guitar, somehow it seemed like a good
idea to round one up for the lesson on Even In The Quietest Moments. The lesson was inspired by
a couple things, the first being Dan’s performance of it at IGC 2017, and the second was that Matt
(our seldom seen man behind the scenes) has been badgering me since the beginning of TG to get
to some Supertramp songs. I have to admit that after listening to most of their albums non-stop
lately I have developed a better appreciation for them.


Most of today’s News consisted of messing around with the 12-string and I am open to suggestions
of any other songs that you think might make good lessons
while I have this behemoth around. I
played bits and pieces of Pink Floyd, The Byrds, Led Zeppelin, and ended with In Christ There Is No
East Or West by John Fahey but played more in the style of Leo Kottke.


On a different front, I got a call from my good friend Jim Bruno over at TotallyVocals. He is heavily
involved in a reunion of his Stickband, some of the pioneers in popularizing the Chapman Stick. Be
sure to check out his latest project at stickbandsj.com.


Another thing that I have been considering is getting out into the world away from TG Central and
trying to get together with a small group of distant students (like 15-20) for a weekend workshop or
mini-camp. The idea would be to do some of what we do at IGC but on a smaller scale.


It would be great to hear if anybody would be interested in spending a weekend in Amsterdam with
me and Vanessa
, probably in a hotel where we would have a few classes, some semi-private lessons,
some performances and open mic nights or afternoons.


Please send me your thoughts on the idea. We are looking at July 7-8, 2018 in Amsterdam and possibly
doing something similar on the East Coast the following September or October.


That’s the News for now,


Neil

Great Weekly News.
The 12 String has an amazing sound.
When I joined TG, I didn't realise I was listing to a 12 string guitars until Chris explained it in the forum as a " Jangly Sound"
Then I heard them everywhere ! As always you make it look easy. Nice playing Neil.

Your Europe plans sound great but for many personal reasons wouldn't mange.


Love the Even In The Quietest Moments lesson, Supertramp were a favorite of mine.

I came across these interesting Jim Bruno videos.
Brilliant.

Dermot

Hey Dermot,

Thanks for posting the Jim Bruno stuff. Many times I mean to do that and get caught up in other stuff. Of course it's probably because in the back of my mind I know you will take care of it. I certainly appreciate it.

Thank you Dermot for posting (jim Bruno)'s stick band videos. They were great. Jim is obviously an excellent musician as well as a wonderful vocalist. Pretty amazing stuff.

Wow. I am so feeling the 12 string love after that. Sigh.

So many guitars, so little time....

Mark.

A Damn Yankees mini IGC would be quite cool and I'd definitely plan to attend.
