Part 1: amazing vintage find in Hawaii online auction

AGN's Mark Rivett recently bought a beautiful, early - mid 60s Gretsch G6131, more commonly known as the JET FIREBIRD. In episode one we take a close look at the guitar which has suffered from being in a hot humid environment for many years....in fact, the guitar has been sitting in the (original) case since 1992...!! These guitars are prized and loved by many players and collectors, none more so than the late, great Malcolm Young from ACDC who single-handedly put this particular Gretsch workhorse on the map as a heavy rockin' rhythm machine.

At Home with David Becker: Chord Symbols and Voice Leading AGN

The great David Becker is keeping busy and sharing more Jazz guitar secrets from the Becker Bunker home studio. From David, "Interpreting Chord Symbols is often difficult. The symbols are Not just limited to the individual notes of that make up that particular chord, but rather the meaning or function of that symbol within the music. Much like seeing an international sign without words that everyone understands regardless of the language they speak. When seeing a Cmaj7 or G13 symbol on a chart, the question is often, what voicing do you play? In this video I will break down a way to see a common cadence (II - VI - II - V - I) in C major and how to interpret the chord symbols with grips or shapes that are interchangeable and how they work as a family of movement. I will also show how to best develop voice leading. This is more effective than thinking of individual chords. These shapes and grips are also useful for many other types of progressions."

Nextdoor Sessions: Asher Belsky; 'The Key".

Actually, Asher Belsky just turned 15 and plays guitar with a melodic yet explosive style. Asher began studying the guitar at age five and has yet to put it down. He has drawn from a range of influences, including the Allman Brothers, the Meters, Marcus King, and Tedeschi Trucks Band, to produce a sound that’s all his own. He writes, sings, and performs with his own band, Outer Sunset. Asher is an inaugural member of the Gibson Generation Group (G3), Gibson Guitar’s select group of young guitar players from around the world, and is an endorsed Gibson artist. Asher is also an endorsing artist for Homestead Amps and Moody Leather. In September 2019, Asher performed at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Festival, playing a featured set with Marcus King. Asher also appeared as a featured artist at Surrealistic Summer Solstice Jam 3 in Golden Gate Park. Asher has shared the stage with the Marcus King Band, the North Mississippi Allstars, Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz of ALO, George Porter Jr. of the Meters, Midnight North, Brandon “Taz” Niederaur, Members of Moonalice, and Norman Greenbaum. In this episode, Asher performs his original song, "The Key".
