Remember this…Jimmy page and the black crowes 

On October 1999, Page teamed up with The Black Crowes for a two-night performance of material from the Led Zeppelins bluesy stuff mixed with some Crowes. Chris Robinson and company mixed with one of the greatest guitar players of all time makes for a great live album. If you haven’t heard this album this is your chance.

The Easy E Chords

This is one of the easiest chords to learn and play. It was my first chord that I learned on the acoustic guitar. Most people can play the E or E Minor chord right off the bat.

        The E chords are in so many songs you hear everyday on the radio. Its an easy transition chord as well.

Using furniture polish on your acoustic guitar 

At first I was worried about to wax built up from the polish but after reading further I found out that lemon oil is great for the guitars wood.  I started using Pledge a few years ago along with some lemon oil.


I use the Pledge for the polished parts of the acoustic guitar and the lemon oil on the unfinished parts.  (Bare wood) Dunlap is what I use the most.  It gives to wood or what ever type of material your fretboard is made of a new look to it. 

Do not use the lemon oil on the finished wood.  Only use it on unfinished wood like the bridge or the fretboard. 

You should only need to use the lemon oil 1 to 2 times a year really not much more than that.

Be smart when you’r changing your strings. Try cleaning your acoustic while you have the strings off that way everything is easy to get to. You can use any furniture polish as long as you check the contents of it.  So many diff types of guitar polish and oils out there it’s all in preference.

Video review on the Elixir nanoweb strings 

I have done a review on the Elixir before , but it was just a blog post. This is a great set of strings to upgrade your acoustic guitar as well as your acoustic guitar lessons.

I am a Martin guitar guy. I try to stick with the brands I know work and have great reviews. This is the strings that Taylor acoustic guitars use in the factory to put on most if not all of the acoustics leaving their warehouse.  They may be the pioneers for this coated string style that has been around for sometime now.

This coating is to keep the dirt and skin from your fingers from removing the life from your strings. By this I mean ,your strings have a life expectancy of a few months if you play them hard or regularly.

The dirt and skin get in between the wire that’s wrapped around to main part of the string as seen in a past blog I did on keeping your hands clean.

Elixir strings are great sounding acoustic strings and last a long long time. The past set I had put on my Martin was getting under my skin because they would not die.

I wanted to change them but they never sounded bad and always stayed in tune and had them on for 4 months. 

So this is a video I did a few weeks back and a few from months ago combined to make this video.

I will be showing how the old strings sounded before I removed them and what the new ones sound like ( my microphone did not do well on this review )
