It was one eclectic movement that included a fabulously diverse group of individuals. Some of us just loved to play and sing the music, some of us were into poetry, some of us were into the historical and cultural background of the music, some of us were into the current and historical political implications and applications of the music, some of us were into sex, drugs and alcohol, but everyone was a little bit into everything - Bruce Langhorn regarding the early Greenwich Village Folk scene

« on: June 23, 2021, 01:25:24 PM »
Hi all,
Stefan Grossman is having a sale on all eighteen of my video lessons that I did for him this week, through this coming Sunday, June 27, and the prices on all of the lessons are deeply discounted. All of the lessons can be purchased in downloadable versions too, if you're not interested in having a DVD. Go to guitarvideos.com to see what's available.
All best,
Johnm

Well thanks, Andrew, and I hope that you're enjoying the Lemon book in particular, since I know that you're a big fan of his. I hope that you and your family are all doing well.
All best,
John

You are welcome John..... the Lemon Book, I am absorbed in it, a lifetimes work there for me. A great book.

my initial thoughts :

Excellent write up from Alan and Kip, some facts I never knew in there,  and nice analysis of some of his lyrics. Really enjoyed that.   

I found really interesting your piece about his time, I think you articulated that really well and in more detail than I ever gave Lemon credit for....I always thought that his guitar parts were so intricate and some cases going at such break neck speed he just took a rest on the one chord at the end of a lot verses, it usually makes me laugh.

You have also opened my ears to the Okeh version Matchbox blues, I hadn't gone to the top of the tree straight away for any other reason than I know the paramount versions intimately as I have been attempting to play them for years.   (I had always focused in on the Paramount version(s) only because I liked the foot tapping a the beginning.)
Oh my word, the Okeh version is incredible, some licks similar but a few of different variations. verses 2 I don't think that is in Paramount version(s) some examples of my one chord rest comment at the end of verse 2 and 3, considering the recordings are 3 months apart, I think, just shows he must have improvised a lot, varying tempo's, speed of the licks, wow. 

I am now starting to pick through other songs I thought I knew ! going to be here sometime.....

Much appreciated John, excellent book.

Did you buy the online one or the physical one Andrew?  Its unfortunate that Stefan's postage is more expensive than the book itself!

Yeah, I saw that too. I think europeans are better off with the direct download versions.
They had a european franchise in the past if I recall correctly with much lower postage.

I paid for both versions .... not that money is no object or anything like that, I just like having both for certain books, I prefer to read the words in hard copy and have one to keep.  I tend to read the music on my laptop (portable music stand I suppose) .... I can't recall what I paid for postage and struggling to find the receipt now.
