Stuck in a (string) Rut

November 26, 2009

I feel kinda like my guitar playing is stuck in a rut, my attempts at fingerpicking are still shitty, but playing with a plectrum REALLY ain’t doing it for me atm.

I think it’s my thumb that’s bothering me. With the thumb brush I can’t get any volume acoustically at all, & I REALLY hate thumb picks of any kind

I’m feeling quite downhearted by the whole sorry affair really

At least I still have Brownie McGhee’s guitar book to work through, that at least is helping

Internet Irritation

November 2, 2009

Their seems to have been a fairly serious problem at my local exchange. I haven’t had phone or Internet for 4 days. They’ve been promising it’ll be fixed within 4 hours for approximately 24 hours now 😦

It must have been a serious problem to last this long I suppose. I’m not impressed with Talk Talk tho, I feel a complaint coming on methinks

I’m just glad I’ve goty iPhone to stay connected with, I’m having withdrawal from broadband Internet, I’ve got the DT’s and everything

Hope it’s back soon

Brownie McGhee Blues Guitar

I found this rather excellent book ‘Brownie McGhee Blues Guitar’ round a bootfair for only 2 quid, gotta be worth that thought I, so I bought it.

It is really very excellent, it might even help me break my fingerstyle mental block. It kinda reminds me of Patrick Costello’s books in a way, their’s wisdom and stories and musical lore mixed in with the tuition, and Brownie tells you WHY you’re doing a certain thing and not just to do it and move onto the next thing, very useful methinks.

Their follows some vids of him on youtube. I think all music videos featuring good guitar players should be shot the same way as the 1st one

Well, it’s been months since I did anything here, naughty Danny. However I have discovered a new iPhone app that lets me update my blog from my phone, HURRAH, this is me seeing if it works really.

I will my 1 and only reader TRY and blog more frequently, hopefully this app will give me the impetus to do just that
