4th of July 2021 - Live Music Is Back!

Holy cow y'all!  I think Live Music in the USA is back, and the old saying is Sooooo true: "Ya don't know what you've got until it's gone!" For musicians, man, has the last couple of years sucked ... big time! Getting out and making music with other humans is the zenith of what our world is all about.  Take THAT away and we all turn into sad blobs with eyes.  Okay, maybe I'm being a little overly dramatic, but not THAT much so! But in the last few weeks (basically June through July 4th) I've played...

Taming the Fender Twin Reverb Amp: From Twin Reverb to Princeton Reverb!

Howdy guitar folks and welcome to 2021 and the "new normal" ... but this time we ain't talking at ALL about COVID-19 or lock-downs, or any of that crap ... we're talking about a trend that began a number of years back: SMALLER AMPS!  All throughout the 1950s through the 1980's amps just kept getting bigger and bigger and louder and louder.  But then it all began to change.  Thanks to readily available great PA systems and in-ear monitors, what everyone NOW desires are amps that can sound MASSIVE whilst...

Post-Covid Live Music Playing Etiquette

Okay gang, last week I got all giddy about having (finally) gotten out and played a live show, my first since COVID-19 killed everything.  In that blog I carried on about how fun it was to get out and play, and when you look at the photos, you will notice that NOBODY is wearing masks.  That was at a redneck/army base club in the army town of Clarksville, TN.  Them "good-ole-boys ain't afraid of nuttin'!  But you may not be so lucky at every club so be prepared.  Especially in the big cities,...

Howdy guitar gang!  Man, was 2020 a "B with an itch"!  and so far 2021 has not been much of an improvement.  If you're like me you've been asking yourself "when will the world be normal again", and as a guitar player "when can I get back out and PLAY LIVE GIGS again?  Right?  Well as I pen this blog in late April, the answer for me was last Friday. It was a fill in gig for the Swamp Monsters, a band I'd never heard of.  They played a lot of Zydeco/Creole and Tex/Mex tunes, many I'd never...

How to Host A Socially Distanced Concert 2021

2020 was a year of great disappointments for live music lovers, musicians, entertainers, venues, and concert promoters alike.  Personally, just as it looked like my new duo was ready to take on the world with a major record deal and great concert opportunities, the world ... stopped!   Far too many of y'all out there had similar experiences, right?  I mean, we went from "2019 was awesome, and 2020 is going to be the most amazing year yet" to "will there EVER be an even decent year ever...
