Good news everyone... Today is your lucky day... Because I haven't bought a guitar yet.

You're welcome.

[–] NosebergShekelman 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

You're just gonna try & make it sound like bagpipes anyway

[–] PuttItOut 0 points 12 points (+12|-0) ago 

I might be doxxing myself but I live near a dude that plays bagpipes. It makes me feel like William Wallace everytime I hear him.

[–] TheBuddha [S] 1 points 9 points (+10|-1) ago 

Buy one, you slacker.

Four chords and you're a hero.

[–] PuttItOut 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

I will. I'm already growing my hair out and thinking of a cool band name.

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

hey Putt, sorry about distracting everybody yesterday!

[–] PuttItOut 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

You're on the list now buddy.

[–] nigger_plz 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

That story about the dude falling off a horse was good. I never saw it before. I'm glad you posted it.

[–] MrHarryReems 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Do it.

[–] cynicaloldfart 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Well, looky there you are alive. How's things going? I suspect the new album has kept you quite busy.

[–] TheBuddha [S] 2 points 15 points (+17|-2) ago 

Hello and welcome to another Friday night guitar thread! Tonight, I'm going to disolve/resolve a potentially major issue!

I realize you may think I do this for you. You're wrong. I do this for me. You'll see...

Yup. It's for me. ;-)

[–] LegalPERSON 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

Haha nice choice. Almost like a country western version with that twang. Sounded great

[–] TheBuddha [S] 1 points 3 points (+4|-1) ago 

Shh! They will notice?

[–] Nadeshda 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Nice, I am half toying with the idea to sing with it but I think @LegalPerson is better for the job... !

[–] TheBuddha [S] 1 points 1 points (+2|-1) ago 

Don't make me call you.

[–] Shiftworker1976 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago

Happy Friday Guitar Thread everyone,

This week I'd like to share a fun little song I did on the side with my man J on guitar. It's a true story, about a whole lot of trouble in the form of a woman.

Birdcage Blues: https://instaud.io/3GU7

[–] MrHarryReems 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

This is fantastic!

[–] InsurrilliantAgain 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago  (edited ago)

You are very kind, thank you.

[–] LegalPERSON 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

That was top notch man!

[–] InsurrilliantAgain 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Thanks!

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Hell yeah! That was cool as can be.

[–] InsurrilliantAgain 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Thanks crazy. She was tall. :)

[–] Nadeshda 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Sounds wonderful! Lovely share! Nice song, so cool for sharing and you have a lovely voice and play well!

[–] InsurrilliantAgain 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Why thank you. The good thing about a song is you can't help but remember even the bad times with a smile :)

Happy Friday Everybody!

Hope you all had a good week! Last Tuesday evening my buddy Chris called me up and said grab my acoustic guitar and come on over to grampa's house, we got a fire going, we got beer, we got absinthe, lets jam! So we headed over there. Now my buddy Verle lives in an upstairs apartment of Chris grampa, so I was thinking that Verle could sing along with us, but when we got there Verle wasn't feeling too well, so he stayed at the top of his stairs hollering down at us by the campfire every now and then. He said he had to stay close to the bathroom.

Last week @DintDoNothin requested that someone play The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, so I mentioned that to Chris and he looked up the lyrics and chords on his cell phone and we played it. There's so many words in that song that chris had to take his hands off the guitar every so often to scroll the screen, so there's a few awkward pauses in there, but other than that I think it sounds great for just a cell phone sitting in the grass while we play by the fire. We had never played this song ever before this. Here's Chris and I singing Englebert Hunperdincks I mean Gordon Lightfoot's classic The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald

[–] cynicaloldfart 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Last week after it was requested, I did a little looking at Lightfoot. Always knew he was a legend, but take a look at who, and how many, have done his songs:

His songs have been recorded by renowned artists such as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams Jr., The Kingston Trio, Marty Robbins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Judy Collins, Barbra Streisand, Johnny Mathis, Herb Alpert, Harry Belafonte, Scott Walker, Sarah McLachlan, Eric Clapton, John Mellencamp, Jack Jones, Bobby Vee, Roger Whittaker, Tony Rice, Peter, Paul and Mary, Glen Campbell, The Irish Rovers, Nico, Olivia Newton-John, Paul Weller, Nine Pound Hammer, Ultra Naté, The Tragically Hip, and The Unintended.

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Thats a hell of a list, and I think I credited the wrong musician, I'm going to have to fix that

[–] Anarchy99 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Sundown. Great song. He had a really good voice. Too bad he did heroin

[–] TheBuddha [S] 1 points 4 points (+5|-1) ago 

LOL

Good song choice!

Weirdo! ;-)

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

I'm not the one who chose it!

[–] DintDoNothin 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

I choose it!

[–] Shotinthedark 1 points 3 points (+4|-1) ago 

That's pretty badass!

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Thanks for listening, happy you enjoyed it!

[–] PeaceSeeker 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Woot! I love me my Canadian folk tunes.

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Woot! Back at ya!

[–] Sanchez_Sucio 0 points 12 points (+12|-0) ago

Sweet.

[–] Sanchez_Sucio 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

I've had a few and I'm camping with family. You guys are part of the entertainment. Thanks.

[–] Mustard_of_puppets 0 points 10 points (+10|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Well here's my piece of shit for this week, https://instaud.io/3GUw it was a really tricky song to play, I couldn't find an accurate chord sheet or a tab that seemed right to me so I kind of made it up, some of the chords I came up with for the verse are really wierd.

  • It's Interstate love song by Stone Temple Pilots

[–] LegalPERSON 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

What the hell is this?

[–] Mustard_of_puppets 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Man that was awesome, best song of the night hands down.

[–] MrHarryReems 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

I can't say that I've ever heard that before. Once again, you show that you can cover virtually any genre!

[–] DintDoNothin 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

I like this one the best

[–] InsurrilliantAgain 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

You're hiding from that mic man, get in there! Sounds good.

[–] Mustard_of_puppets 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

My Mic's just my phone sitting on a coffee cup on an end table, I was actually pretty close to it, I used a pick though and recorded it the same as when I use my fingers, I never use a pick so I'm not used to how much louder it is. I didn't test listen to it either I just straight uploaded it because it felt good enough.

I'll take a few minutes this week and try to find a balance that works with a pick for songs like this.

[–] MrHarryReems 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

It's been a while since I've been around to hear you play. Nicely done!

[–] Mustard_of_puppets 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Thanks Harry, it has been a while, how you been?

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

That's my favorite STP song, it has a different feel to it with you singing it, more poignant. I like it.

[–] Mustard_of_puppets 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Thanks, it was tricky to figure it out, I'm pretty sure my chords were wrong but seemed to work, I don;t know what chords STP actually used for it, it's a wierd one. That main riff sure is fun though, but it's wierd too. STP were an underrated band.

[–] MrHarryReems 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

So much going on these days.. I've been meaning to post our latest music video for a while, but you know how it goes... We've had a full house forever, and I think our last guest leaves at the end of the month.

And, in my band's true style, we've exploded another fiddler. Initially, he thought the travel sounded fun, but he didn't like the reality of it. The experience has spawned a new band policy: No Vegans!!!

[–] LegalPERSON 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Good to see you Reems! Great song and the video quality is outstanding!

[–] MrHarryReems 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Thanks! We had a real videographer for this one. Gal who is like a daughter to us started dating a videographer, so naturally we have put him to work!

[–] InsurrilliantAgain 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Great stuff!

A real treat to have the video with it too, this thread continues to rewards those who take the time!

[–] MrHarryReems 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Thanks! Much appreciated.

[–] Nadeshda 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Lovely upbeat song and a beautiful location and video! Nicely done Sir, Whop!!! :)

[–] MrHarryReems 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Thank you, ma'am! Very kind of you.

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I remember hearing that song before! Thats a great video! Where the hell are your kilts?

[–] MrHarryReems 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

We were shooting for more of a hillbilly vibe for this one.. I admit, it does feel weird having anything public facing from the band without being kilted.

[–] MightoScrub 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

I love how this is a consistent sticky every Friday.

[–] heygeorge 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

So do we! Join in on the merry-making!

[–] PuttsMum 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

OT George, but after years and years of struggling to play bar chords cleanly, I had a hero derp moment yesterday after learning about guitar action on YT. After filing down the bridge on my ancient Ibanez, boom, I can finally play bar chords without muffling any strings. I'm so stoked because progress!

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

I love that it even just happens every Friday night!

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Me too! It's for you.

[–] cynicaloldfart 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Wait...what...um, I don't think we were prepared for that. Actually you're nice for saying so, and many people share that sentiment. We count on the few that don't for a few, predictable laughs.
