What are you currently listening to? 2023

Yeah, was watching her lesson on Oh Why ?! thinking the rhythm looked easy. Boy was I wrong, girl’s got fast fingers and a great sound. :+1: And with that cigar box, much more easier on the eye than Seasick Steve, who’ve I’ve not checked out in years !

That session is an abject lesson in “no such thing as a lead guitarist”. Each and everyone of them ripping up impros and soloing, is filling rhythm deep in the pocket, waiting their turn.
No Rhythm No Lead No Shortcuts !
:sunglasses:

And jeez feeling old. It was 15 years ago Seasick rocked up on Jools Holland and also played the Reading Festival

Working on some new “progressive” Blues licks today and discovered a new tendon flexibility exercise but then had my 4th Covid booster. So this evening I’ve lined up a couple(?) of bottles of Pelforth and whacked on some vintage acker dacker. Angus and Bon at their best !

Do places like the Apollo Glasgow exist any more ? Or is it just the bands just aren’t like they used to be or am I getting old. Not too old to rock for sure. So many great gigs came out of Renfield Street ! Quo springs to mind !

As usual one thing leads to another, so I’ll watch this before cranking up the Family Jewels DVDs I have on the PC.

I’ve just had some of the best news I’ve had for a long while……

They so very much deserve it after all the hard work they’ve put into their careers so far, I knew they would make it and this together with their headline tour in Europe this year is where they deserve to be!

Chatting to my brother over the weekend, he mentioned that the first big international artist he saw after moving from SA to London was Jeff Beck. An incredible evening with many encores, until finally he ripped the strings off his guitar and said he was done for the night. He mentioned how powerful loud the sound was. I menioned doing a bit of a deeper dive and taking in Truth and Beck- Ola (first two solo albums) and he immediately recommened Guitar Shop as a ‘must listen’

This is one I’m sure most of you have heard, but it’s been stuck in my head for two days since I saw a clip of it pop up on Reddit. Someone posted it, discussing how great McCartney was with both singing and playing bass… Which, yeah, McCartney is great at… but I think where he shines brightest is his song-writing. This song will literally not leave my head. I feel like a hostage. :rofl:

That will be awesome, Gertjan! Super jealous! :metal::sweat_smile:
Have you listened to Eternal Champion (the ones from Austin Texas, not Illinois)? They aren’t super well known but play some of my favourite new school but old school Epic Heavy Metal. Check 'em out, they’re worth a listen imo:

Folks on the old forum will recognise the name Marcusmarkmus and Marc has dropped in here I believe since we cross the bridge. But for those who don’t follow him and Sandra on YouTube, here is the latest release from Sandmark. Its a stunner, natch :sunglasses:
