Fingerpicking challenge day 35 of #100daysofpractice - this time I'm playing a Malagueña on the #spanishguitar with fingerpicks. My nails are flat and suck so I'm trying to learn this new way influenced by Lenny Breau. I'm using pronation and supination on the 'ayudado' technique instead of using only flexion.
3 years ago today I saw @gaelic_storm at @highlandbrewing and in the 19 years I have been following the band this was one of my favorite shows. It was at the end of a day exploring @visitasheville and @blueridgenps and it was a perfect night in the meadow surrounded by the tall trees and the rumble of trains. The #clawhammer Oktoberfest had Murphy particularly chatty. The perfect combination of a great atmosphere and a fun set made this a show I will always remember fondly. @isee_ifoto @petepurvis @kianajuneweber
Fingerpicking challenge day 32 of #100daysofpractice playing Araceli part II on my #spanishguitar can't make all the challenges I would like to but I definitely would love to play the Spanish guitar great! Playing with fingerpicks gives me more tone since my nails suck
Yay, #banjototw lives again! @waxwingbanjoslo has chosen the jolly "Tiehacker Rag." The only other tune I've learned in this gCGCE tuning is "Railroading and Gambling," so I'm gonna assume only train tunes can be in this tuning. Fun tune!
For this week's #spiritualsunday here's a lil #clawhammer version of the old gospel tune "keep your lamp trimmed and burning" first recorded by blind willie Johnson, but the later slide version by Mississippi Fred McDowell will always stick with me,
