    What's Spinnin' ..

    A tune Boozoo Chavis wrote about his race horse.
  2. The Loar LH-250 (sunburst; 1 11/16" nut) and The Loar LO-16 (black with white pickguard; 1 3/4"nut)... both small bodied ... LH250 is Fender scale and all solid wood ... LO-16 is Gibson scale and solid top with laminated back and sides ... both have nice chunky necks, open Grover tuners, bone nut and bridge, and both sound incredible for a guitar you can buy for less than $300 (I gave $170 for the LO-16 and $235 for the LH-250--both with nice hardshell cases).
  3. "I don't play a lot of fancy guitar. I don't want to play it. The kind of guitar I want to play is mean, mean licks. ~John Lee Hooker
  4. Seagull S-6 Cedar is an amazing guitar that you can pick up for less than $300 if you look around.
  5. The Ventures Play Telstar and the Lonely Bull will never leave the regular rotation. I'm a big fan of instrumental rock, especially The Fireballs, Link Wray, Duane Eddy, Dick Dale, Bill Black's Combo, The Champs, and Bill Doggett.

    F**k Snakes?

    When I got out of the Army in 1973, I went to work for an industrial paint company with a crew of black guys. We had a job in Iowa, and all the way there and all the way back to Texas we listened almost exclusively to James Brown. It was great. I don't think folks nowadays realize how big he really was in those days. I saw him a couple of times in the '60s with the Famous Flames, and the shows were smokin'.
  7. I like buying used from Guitar Center because I can get them to ship to the local Guitar Center, and I can pick it up there. I also like it that I can have them open the box at the store and if there's an issue we can sort it out of the spot. I've never had a problem, and I've gotten some pretty nice deals. I've always called the out-of-town GC, and they've always gotten the instrument off the wall and answered every single question with the instrument in hand..

    Gig Bag Recommendations

    Thrift stores like Goodwill generally carry all kinds of old carry bags, and you can generally get a good'un for under 10 bucks.
