Griff Hamlin: Playing/Counting Rhythm & Lead Together
This video is a little more of a project for the beginning blues players watching... In order to be able to play with other people (really, in order to be able to play at all) you need to be able to play a simple rhythm, keep some time, and maybe play a little lead over it... I talk a lot about counting, and I hear from a lot of students that they have trouble counting when it comes to single note lines - so this line is really easy and should be straightforward for counting. You NEED to be able to do this. If you cannot, work on your skills until you can, and you'll be setup for much more progress down the line. If you can do this already, that's GREAT!

Griff Hamlin: First Finger Bend & Licks
I know that I'm usually the first person to say, "Don't bend with your first finger, that just doesn't feel good and it's hard." That hasn't really changed, but there *are* certain times when your first finger is going to be called upon to push some steel - and this is that time. These are a couple of Albert King-ish moves that tend to require the first finger if you want them to sound just right.
Wildwood Guitars • PRS Guitars Custom 24 - 10 Top • SN: 190285097
The story of the PRS Custom 24 is so closely intertwined with the PRS origin story that it's impossible to separate the two. Paul Reed Smith is a revered figure in the guitar industry nowadays, but back in the early eighties he was building one guitar a month in an attic while gigging regularly around Maryland. To sell his guitars, he'd show up six or seven hours early before big arena shows, make friends with the roadies, and try to get backstage to put them in rockstars' hands. Once, at a Ted Nugent show, he pretended to BE a roadie as he sprinted past security with guitars under his arms towards the motor city madman. Though many artists were a bit skeptical of Paul at first, his guitars quickly won them over. In 1985, Paul had accumulated enough prestige to attend his first NAMM show. He only had two guitars to show, but they were so impressive that he was able to get enough orders to secure a hefty investment and build a brand-new workshop. One of those guitars was a yellow dual-humbucker equipped guitar with a mahogany body, a figured maple top, and a 24-fret neck. It had looks that evoked classic guitars of the past, but it was its own animal entirely. This was the first Custom 24: a guitar so inspiring that it helped launch a guitar juggernaut. To get people to pay attention back in the early eighties, Paul said he had to build guitars that looked prettier, played faster, and sounded better than anything else. Now, almost four decades later, the PRS Custom 24 continues to set new standards in fit, finish, tone, beauty, and playability. Though Paul has enhanced the Custom 24 many times over the years, each of these guitars still carries that original spark of creative energy that led Paul to bum-rush his way past roadies back in the early eighties. We're proud to celebrate the Custom 24's legacy by showcasing these exceptional guitars, and we know they will inspire you to no end.

Alamo Music Center: Taylor 210ce Plus - The New Tween in the 200 series | In-depth Guitar Review
For 2020, Taylor Guitars continued to expand their lineup, this time in the popular 200 Series. The new 200 Plus which includes both a square shoulder dreadnought version in the 210ce Plus as well as the perennially popular Grand Auditorium in the 214ce Plus. The new models act as an in-between model in the 200 series lineup, slotting in between the 214ce and 214ce DLX model. To accomplish this, Taylor Guitar dropped the price of the 214ce models and discontinued the 114ce and 110ce models. The plus models features gloss bodies, layered East Indian Rosewood back and sides and a solid Sitka Spruce top. One of the best new features available on these models is the new Taylor Aerocase. Effectively a hybrid case that fits between a gigbag and a hard shell case, the Aerocase fits that in-between need, much like the guitars themselves.Check out the full review of Taylor's newest 200 series.

Wildwood Guitars • Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt Jason Smith Wildwood 10 1956 Stratocaster • SN: R96774
This Jason Smith-built '56 Strat has a stunning aged transparent cherry finish, and it sounds as pretty as it looks! The neck pickup is glorious: full, lush, and warm with excellent balance and clarity. The middle pickup is a bit more focused in the midrange, and it has more cut, but it is still quite robust. The bridge pickup has vocal, quacking midrange to go with chiming sunny trebles and taut low-end. All in all, this Wildwood 10 has quite a sonorous voice, and anyone searching for a lush-sounding Strat will dig it!
Truetone Lounge | Jerry McPherson
In our Truetone Lounge interview with session guitarist Jerry McPherson, we look at his beginnings in Texas, early tours and sessions with Amy Grant, and his transition to his current position as a full-time and in-demand session player. We also look at his favorite session tools, and his patented robot arm, that at the touch of a button, moves a set of microphones to various cabinets in Jerry's amp isolation room. But this episode is about so much more than his bio and gear. It is packed with Jerry's insights on playing parts, how to use effects, and how to keep a listener engaged throughout the course of a song. This episode is pure gold for the aspiring session guitarist.
