Erick Walls showing how to get your gospel guitar chops in order. Looks like I’ve got a little “borrowing” ahead of me. Whole lotta music going on right here.
Chris Read - Notorious BIG ‘Ready to Die’ 20th Anniversary Mixtape
Today’s song is an almost hour long mixtape tribute to Ready to Die? Yes, today’s song is an almost hour long mixtape tribute to Ready to Die.
Adam Rafferty - “Superstition”. So, my boy Adam, one of only two guitar teachers I’ve ever had (the other, Peter Mazza), is going to have his version of this song featured on So You Think You Can Dance tomorrow (Wednesday 8/27) night on Fox at 8pm ET (episode 1114). So proud of Adam for finding a way to build an amazing business around his passion, building a worldwide fan base, and finding a sustainable joy as a professional musician. That and I get tons of free stuff from him.
Paco and the other men in the de Lucía family playing bulerías.
Rachel Price of Lake Street Dive singing “What I’m Doing Here”. One take. No auto-tune. Just enough singing to convey the story, nothing more. Kills me how good she is. I could listen to this forever.
Tom Quayle + Martin Miller - “Between the You and Me”. Nice little tune with some sweet playing.
Womack & Womack - “Baby I’m Scared Of You” - Love Wars. RIP
Jonas Grumby - “Consciously Modern”. #tbt 20 years ago, my band recorded this. Two takes on the solo (spliced ‘em).
Tom Quayle - “Giant Steps”. The face and the playing don’t match. When you’ve got it down, I guess you don’t need face muscles.
Dirty Loops - “Loopified” - whole album. 3 guys dropping some aggressive uptempo tunes. Musicianship isn’t dead.
