    The guy is amazing.

    There's so much I don't know about (stuff that you're already doing but don't know what it is) that once you explain it all, I'm almost afraid to pick up the guitar, does that make any sense?

    Is that a Guild, his electric?

    You gotta love this guy "crushing golf balls all day, like on this one", he says, looking at the acoustic ;-)

    Damn, it's nice to see somebody admit how damn hard it is.

    Really profound, what he says about listening, and this.

    Trippy, I'd just recently learned about the Solfeggio Frequencies, a minor coincidence.

    After being reminded that we will be playing at the famed Apollo theatre, I've reconsidered and decided to take my X-500. I want to represent with the best. I've found that by keeping my right hand close to the bridge, I can do some extra damping of the high strings as needed.

    Thanks for posting those excellent videos. Although I’ll probably never play with a big band, if I do, I’ll at least have a clue. New knowledge is always welcome, you never know when it will come in handy.
    Congratulations on getting to play at the Apollo! The X-500 should serve you well there. Have a great gig.

    Well, I was mistaken on playing the Apollo. (The setup layout form was for the Apollo.) It was moved to Symphony Space because the Apollo wasn’t big enough. (?)
