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.

The Converse Wha Pedal 

So this was prototyped a few years back around 2013. Converse has taken target audience to a new level.  It doesn’t matter if your playing with an acoustic electric or an electric.

They have taken the famous converse shoe of all time ,the Chuck Taylor and put a Wha pedal in the sole of the shoe.  This iconic shoe is worn by so many famous singer songwriters in the business not to mention all of you out there that put them on.  


I have mixed feeling on this product. My negative thinking goes to a guitar player forgetting he or she is one with the equipment and set the guitar down and take of for a stage dive or is just feeling the music and want to move around, You can’t. If you forget your going to be dragging your D-28 across the stage with you with bad results.

 

 I would love to try out.  If I get my hands on a pair, I’m gong to do a video review on what I think.  But…this is a wonderful idea for all of us on the go.  You have a wha pedal with you as long as you are wearing the shoes. Also want to know if it makes the shoe less comfortable.

Hootie and the Blowfish as well as Oasis played that same year.

If your a beginner acoustic player this is a great album for learning new chords like Em7 along with some not so hard lead parts.

The song is tuned a half a step down ,so if you’re  trying to play along with the song it wont jive. 

If you would like to see my how to video on how to play this song leave a comment below.  

Fun facts:

The concert wasn’t aired until May of 96 and not realest on CD until July of 96. It made it up to the top 3 songs on the Billboard 200

A full length DVD of the concert was also later released in 1999.This event was one of the final appearances with vocalist Layne Staley

Remember This…

 

“I don’t mind stealing bread”
The verse most of us know from the song Hunger Strike by the combined bands of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam. 

 

The time was April 16,1991  Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder we’re taking their bands to new highs ,and making this album was a bonus for all the Soundgarden and Pearl Jam fans. They were no strangers to one another both being vocalists in the band Mother Love Bone

During this time the Seattle scene was hot with bands like Soundgarden ,Pearl Jam and Nirvana all making a come up.This album was icing on the cake for A&M records,with hit songs like Hunger Strike and Say Hello 2 Heaven.temple-of-the-dog-4fd30d7435541

Recorded at the London Bridge Studio in Seattle Washington in only 15 days they say. If you’re in your mid 30’s this band will bring you back. Both bands combined for this album was a great move and will go down as one of the bast albums of its time. Sometimes you might catch Cris Cornell singing one of the songs from that album on his Acoustic tour.

It’s so easy you will be strumming in no time  and putting an end to the struggling.

Using your foot to keep the rhythm is the best known source for staying on track with what ever song you are learning. 


Now a days you can download apps that have a metronome in the software that will help you get started.  Don’t know what a metronome is? Check this out.
