If you scroll down the page a bit, you can see my primary guitars.

I am a working musician and have a trio I tour with. I often camp with music gear - either because we are playing at a festival or because I am on my way to a show. You should know that some public parks have specific prohibitions regarding amplified music outside (regardless of the volume. In particular, Oregon state parks and many national parks.

One member of my trio is a cellist - even unamplified, a cello is monster loud and when we have mustered an acoustic jam outside it's not uncommon for a ranger to appear at the back of the looky-lous.

I should add, that I do play in the evening. Just not very often.

My most memorable evening was playing Western Swing, and looking up to see people dancing at the opening to the Camp-site. None of us were plugged in.

So I got a pretty good idea of how to think about playing outside.

My problem is that every day, I need an actual practice session away from people where I just work on singing and playing or something like scale or technique work.

I am highly addicted to this! I absolutely love the way my body continues to respond and gain new abilities. Talk about staying young, this is the fountain of youth! So no matter if I have to go inside, put on headphones, keep my voice as low as possible and stand on my head, I have to figure out what I can do and how I satisfy this demand. For a weekend or two, I can easily let practice slide, but after that, come hell or high water I will be on that instrument. It may mean boondocking more often.

I'll figure this out. Without offending anyone. I heard bigfoots don't like loud music either. Now I have to worry about pissing them off too!

There are a lot of out of the way places where echo's off canyon walls can make your music sound different....something to think about. Not sure if the rock type/style impacts echo frequency, I'll leave that up to the rock hounds.

in my family, my brother is the big guitar player, but his tastes run more to old jazz and vintage blues, early rockabilly. he's got quite the collection of guitars, some he's had since the late 60s/early 70s. mostly gibsons (es335, es295, sg special, etc), a gretsch country gentlemen, a beautiful early 70s guild blonde jumbo, and a few telecasters, including a real b-bender. an epiphone elite broadway (L5 remake). and some oddballs like a 1953 Silvertone Aristocrat.

this is him, noodling some blues on the Silvertone at a bar near where he lives...

That was cool John.

Your brother has nice chops and a very steady rhythm. The 12 bar blues is easy for him. Talented buddies to boot!

Thanks for sharing!


I only got three. Cause that's all I need.
Stratocaster Elte
Telecaster Elite

the piano player Curtis is my bro's partner in crime, they play together all the time... curtis is an old studio sessions player from OKC and Memphis. the drummer hosts the 'open mic' night at this bar, while the harp player is the drummers friend. IMHO, the harp player kept stepping on everyone, and the sound guy did not equalize my bro or Curtis's mics at all well, nor did he get enough bass out of the keyboard. my brothers guitar came thorugh nice and clear from his 1960s vintage Princeton Reverb. fyi, that was hand held video from my cell phone :-O

I play violin and mandolin I use a mute for the violin and a judicious amount of dynamic control on the mandolin. The fine art of playing soft seems to rare as hens teeth. I can play a very loud instrument pppp. So it can be done.

I only have a relative relationship with music. My nephew Jon plays all the instruments on this version of Green Onions, recorded in my brother's studio.

Very Cool.


Great command of the sound. Those kids are polished. Future studio musicians. Well disciplined.

If you like guitars and music from the 60's/70's "The Band" popular song "The Weight" is about a trip to Nazareth,Pa to pick up a guitar from Martin Guitar Co. located there.

A Hohner headless guitar, Vox headphone amp w/effects and headphones.
No problems, I would like better headphones, I've been told to look at AKG K 240 Semi-Open Studio Headphones, but haven't gotten to try any yet.
Just trying to re-learn stuff after a 30 year gap in playing.

Hey John:


Depending on your budget I would recommend BayerDynamic DT-880 semi open headphones. But you have to be okay with the open design. It can be annoying to hear someone bleeding sound to the room. They are super comfortable and perfect for mixing recordings. $300.


I could bring a pair up to Nk' Mip in May.
