Interesting approach, Dave.  When asked for an entry point, I usually ask if the questioner would be more interested in freak-out improvisation (in which case I recommend starting where I did, with Live/Dead); or careful songcraft (Workingman's Dead & American Beauty, of course).  If they're not sure, or say "Both", I point them at Europe '72 - two of three of which, I realize, avoid the original question how to approach the studio stuff.


Tonight I'm doing a themed thing:


Flatlanders


Gram Parsons


LeRoi Brothers

My favorite thing from Warren.

Peter

Quick story about Warren alone and his acoustic guitar.  I have been a Gov't Mule fan for a long time.  My wife didn't understand...   ::)


We went to Summerfest to see the Avett Brothers, Brandi Carlisle opened for them, prior to her taking the stage was Warren- I wanted to get there early not to miss that, my wife (who often times is challenged with being punctual- I do love her to the moon and back - just sayin') Was still rolling her eyes, 'Warren shwarren, Gov't Mule, blah blah blah'.


So we did get there early and Warren played for about an hour, just him and his acoustic guitar.  Needless to say at the end of the night she spoke more about Warren then anyone else!   8)   :D ;D


Me? Well I knew all along that Warren was The Man, but admittedly I left rather impressed with the Hanseroth twins that were backing Brandi. 


All in all it was an absolutely pleasant evening of fine music.  And my wife has since gotten two of Warren Haynes solo CD's!

This is different; and interesting.  An eight string, fan fret, classical guitar, with a spike (like a cello) that sits on a resonance box, so that the instrument is held much like a cello.  Regular tuning with a B below the low E, and an A above the high E.


One thing I found really interesting is how, as he explains it, the weight of the left arm affects left hand fingering, and how the freedom of movement of the right arm affects thumb and finger picking.


Here he talks about the guitar:

Man - I can't even get the hang of 6!

Heard this on a Magnus Walker documentary, it was soothing.

My buddy John over at Bluegrass Today turned me onto Foxes & Fossils yesterday, and pointedly, did not say anything else... kinda' like a musical version of ring & run.  ;D

OK, I also clicked on a few on the sidebars; didn't find any I didn't enjoy.  And I like the name "Foxes & Fossils".

On a similar naming note, there's a blues band locally here called Johnny & the Boomers; John's about 40, the rest of the band are in their 60s and/or 70s.  They're pretty good - but F&F are a lot prettier....
