Here’s a really nice video lesson from Arlen Roth for Gibson Guitars, featuring Buddy Guy’s Mary Had a Little Lamb. Arlen does a great job of explaining it in this video.

Monday night me and Mrs. Electric Bard saw Train at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. Oh man, they were fantastic. Jimmy Stafford’s Fender ukulele sounded wonderful on Hey, Soul Sister. He also made very good use of his Fender Acoustasonic Tele on a few songs. AND he was playing a Les Paul type guitar that actually had some of the features I’ve been suggesting for Gibson in earlier posts to this site, with the rearranged volume and tone controls. I couldn’t tell what it was for sure, but I’m guessing it might have been a PRS SC 58 or something like that. Does anyone know what he plays? And has anyone read Jim’s book, The Guitar on the Wall? Is it out yet?
