But that’s not why I’m sharing this video…. what is captivating here is what Erica Mou and her music […]

  • Exploring the Vo-96 – Acoustic Synth

    By Jim Weaver “This will set some people off and will fascinate others. Sent by a musician friend who is on the road. His comment “Kinda crazy”. Reminds me that when I was young I took a “Musicianship 101″ course that allowed me to play/compose on one of only three Moogs in the country. It occupied nearly two floors in the music building.” Thanks Jim, this is odd indeed but something that some guitarists like you have said will be […]

  • Les Paul and Mary Ford: Track by Track

    I’m gonna end this Les Paul Tribute off with with a video that is both entertaining and a peak into how Les really recorded their music.

Pretty much Alaister Cooke is referencing the fact that people were indeed wondering if Les and Mary were doing some kind […]
