Country music before 1965, on line thursday evenings krts marfa public radio. "Honky Tonk Happy Hour" and "The rockabillly show".

But now, for me, it's Ralph Stanley, "Saturday Night and Sunday Morning". "Rank Stranger" is one of the great songs of America's musical legacy.

Sister Rosetta Tharp is essential Sunday listening too.

Tonight it will be Otis Redding and Carla Thomas, Ike Turner, Bobby "Blue" Bland, that kind of thing.

Speaking of Sunday church music, foreigners here might not be familiar with certain American church practices. In the 1880s in a southern Protestant congregational denomination called the Church of Christ, a split called the Joyful Noise Controversy developed.
The church was composed of hard Scots-Irish border people, all thoroughly convinced of their own righteousness.
One faction, the Christian Evangelical, cited a bible verse exhorting the people to "make a joyful noise",during worship.
The other faction, the Firm Foundation, said that musical instruments like the piano and organ were un-biblical and banned them.
The split persists to this day, in many southern towns you will see both the Christian church (Disciples of Christ) and the Church of Christ. They persist in their beliefs about music. The latter sect believes in vocal music only, the former uses instruments and voice.
Our American church music, descended over generations from Germany, the British Isles, and Africa, is really a world treasure.

Im still on my George Harrison kick- a couple days ago, (thursday actually- ha) a radio station here had TBT (ThrowBack Thursday) playing Beatles solo works all day long. One of the most striking cuts was George Harrrrison playing slide blues guitar along side Alvin Lee. Bluest Blues. A real bittersweet moment, to hear both Alvin Lee (dead) of Ten Years After fame and Mr Harrison (also dead), two great musicians, both former life staples for me in my youth, playing together

[video:youtube]https://youtu.be/rB6OlJqV1rQ[/video]

Did you know George Harrison played guitar on Cheech & Chong's Basketball Jones? smile

the video is overproduced, but the recording is first-rate

The forest rangers recorded rock with a touch of country or folk overtones. With a number of different lead singers. They did most of the background musica for sons of anarchy. Lousy show but good music

This girl rocks. She goofed about two minutes in. You could see it in her eyes and she smiled at the tabla player. Hey but when you have to hit 10,000 notes in a tune, you're bound to goof some.

I can't bend a string like this on my guitar without breaking them.....

Cheers,
Bill

Rediscovered this record a few months ago. Incredible guitar work. Smooth and flowing. Great album cover also.

Allman Bros Band on Pandora while Im retouching photos ... the main thing I like about Pandora is the fact that it plays all these other bands "like" the band Ive selected so I hear things Ive never heard before..... Coincidently the thing I hate about it is the fact that it plays bands other then what Ive selected.... shocked

Since I got the GR-1, I almost never play just plain ole' guitar anymore. A lot of the music I play sounds great with sax, vibraphones, flute, piano, etc, etc.

I lay down tracks with rhyhthm guitar, bass, drums, then play along with above instruments. I also lay down background strings or vox (synthetic voices) which sounds awesome to me.

I'm almost ready to make a recording of about 8 tunes; A mix of originals, old standards, and arrangements. This gadget has opened up my music experience by an order of magnitude.

If I'd known it was this much fun I would have done this years ago. And it cost just under 200$. I recently spent 2500$ bucks on a new Les Paul that just sits there on the wall......I fitted my GR-1 pickup on a 500$ MIM Fender Jaguar and that's all I play now.

Cheers,
Bill

Thanks Bill!!

I'm interested in using it to process different string instruments! I can't play guitar (keys for the last 30 years though), but the experimentation would be a lot of fun!!

This unit has three hundred preset sounds on it with options to add more. The Roland GR series is now up to GR-55, with about five versions since the GR-1. I can't guess what the others have, but if I did, I'd say they probably made it more user friendly rather than adding a bunch more sounds.

You can spend up to about 8-900$ for a new unit.

I'm thinking of selling the Les Paul......played very little.
