KILLER Solo. ONE take. Here's HOW he DID it. RJ Ronquillo
Tim Pierce, "My friend from Nashville, R.J. Ronquillo, stopped by and ripped some great solos. This particular solo was a first take and I considered it to be near perfect in its concept, execution and structure.

Alamo Music Center | Too Old To Learn Guitar - Never! I'll tell you why!
Am I too old to learn to play the guitar? I am asked this question all the time. Sometimes the question comes from someone who played guitar in their youth and want to return to it. At other times the individual has never played but has always wanted to. In either case the question is often coming from someone who is finally able to devote time and money to the guitar. The concerns are, can I learn guitar at an older age? Will I have trouble with hand strength? Will I be able to learn chords? Have you ever met anyone that learned guitar at my age? etc. Spoiler.... Yes, you can learn guitar at an older age. However, there are some challenges that you will face and some major benefits as well. We dive into experience and science to answer the question. Are you too old to learn guitar?
Wildwood Guitars • Fender Custom Shop Wildwood 10 Relic-Ready 1958 Jazzmaster • SN R101257
Though the Jazzmaster was originally designed to appeal to jazz guitarists, it has found a much broader appeal across many genres and eras. In everything from surf music to shoegaze to new wave to indie music, the Jazzmaster has formed the sonic backbone of many classic records, and its offset body is the picture of cool. Our Wildwood 10 Jazzmasters from the Fender Custom Shop capture the inimitable vibe of their vintage forebears while providing incredible modern playability. They feature ridiculously resonant, high-quality tonewoods wearing fifties-style nitrocellulose lacquer finishes that allow the guitar to breathe and resonate like nobody's business. They also have pickups with real flatpole magnets to capture that classic Jazzmaster sound. The wizard-like luthiers at the Fender Custom Shop have also outfitted these guitars with a Wildwood-exclusive 10" radius and narrow-tall 6105 frets, a configuration that facilitates just about every style and technique under the sun. So, these Wildwood 10 Jazzmasters blend comfortable ergonomics with vintage vibe in a truly inspiring way. We invite you to browse through our offset offerings and see what colors, neck shapes, and relic'd finishes inspire you. We're sure you'll find one that tickles your ear drums!
