My Genre-Ation

Who’s next, Tommy?  Ok. No more bad puns as we enter our concluding weekend of celebration with International Guitar Month (IGM).

If you are a player you’ll dig this... Jimi Hendrix would have been 70 this year and Guitar Player magazine has the maestro as its cover subject for the May issue.  A lot of what Jimi did has not been widely heard from across the pond but you will on this week’s Croude--his BBC sessions.

The Prismatic Artistry of Dave Hunter

True story.  I was having dinner recently with a good friend and running down the list of guests on the Croude during IGM (International Guitar Month).  My pal, an acoustic guitar player asked what Dave Hunter’s specialty was?  I paused a second, then said everything!  It sounds like hyperbole but when i spoke to the author/musician/editor by phone recently, I joke about how one man could amass so much guitar knowledge and still be under 200 years of age? 

A Global Hodgepodge of Sound

Ah, the trouble I run into some weeks when I sit down and try to write this little blog. It's a simple problem, really--what hook can I jot down that will get you to not only read this article but will get you to tune in to The World Music Show (this Saturday at 10:00 p.m.). Sometimes a band or artist is so new or unusual or cool that it's easy for me to write about. While other times, there may be a holiday or a unique instrument that I want you to check out.

And then there are weeks like this.
