Quote from: B0WIE on May 26, 2024, 11:21:06 AMI should clarify, I've never paid that for an instrument. I got it used and actually made a $1,500 profit on that guitar. I got a steal on one of the SCGCs and paid half of the normal used value. My guitars largely pay for themselves and, ironically, the more guitars I try the more affordable it becomes, as long as I'm careful not to try to keep them all or buy ones that I can't re-sell.

 I seldom buy a new/unused guitar as it kills my ability to keep my system going, though there was an incredible Larrivee all-koa 000 that I saw on youtube recently, which almost broke my will. Thankfully, it sold immediately so I didn't get the choice.
I have done something similar with electric guitars over the years.  It began with me getting a really great deal on one, selling it to fund another that was bought via a great deal, and so it goes.  Years later I have a really nice electric guitar that I ultimately paid very little money for.  I have found over the years that people are often willing to give unreasonably good deals on electrics more than acoustics.  I'm not entirely sure why this is the case but an electric seems like the very first thing to go when someone is in a bind.  There seems to be less wiggle room on price with individuals selling quality acoustics. 

Memorial Day Monday I listened to:
WHYY Radio Philadelphia's Fresh Air presented A look back at Stax Records.
Quite interesting interview with the Stax Records house band guitarist, Steve Cropper  on the history of Stax and their fleet of AM radio hit-making musicians (of which he was one).
Stax brought us Wilson Pickett, Isaac Hayes, Booker T Jones, Albert King, The Staples Singers, Otis Redding, Sam & Dave.

Steve is one of the best interviews. I'm a long-time fan of old-school soul, admittedly more for the singers (Otis, Al, Sam & Dave, etc)than the bands but I've always had great respect for Steve. People tend to like guitarists that play all over a song but Steve's proof that sometimes less is more.

And this interview is all about the songs and the singers; not Steve as a guitarist.

Wonderful interview with Yo-Yo Ma yesterday available in podcast form here.

On music as a means "to touch infinity" and life's lessons. And he brought his Domenico Montagnana cello built in 1733 with him.
He has recorded the Bach's Cello Suites three times now.


Quote from: Silence Dogood on May 20, 2024, 09:35:52 PMI wasn't going to say anything about Beato but since you did I will agree.  I don't know what it is but I cannot get into his gig at all.  Absolutely phenomenal guitar player though! 
Ok, time for me to publicly eat some crow here.  Rick Beato just dropped an hour-long interview with Ed Roland that I enjoyed every minute of.  Collective Soul is one of my favorite bands of all time and Ed is one of my favorite songwriters (along with Jeff Lynne).  It wasn't just an interview about the band, but it was about the music business, how things started, how people get/got paid, how the industry has changed, gear used, recording, etc, etc.  Quite fascinating!  I realize now the critique I had made of Beato was based solely on the Instagram reels I've seen from him where he just plows through a riff or demonstrates something. Those have never appealed to me at all. I had never taken to time to watch one of his interviews, so my earlier comments were basically a public display of my ignorance (bag over head).  I recommend watching the interview with Ed Roland if you are a fan at all.
