Thanks for this great program, especially the bit about women in the guitar world. We're often overlooked, so that was good. I play old music-old blues, country, standards-from the first half of the 20th century. And original music in that vein. Now, if you'll excuse me, I must go play for ten minutes or more.
Hi Tony! I have just corrected an egregious wrong!
I purchased a Mule resonator over Covid and began exploring the world of open tunings. Unfortunately, I was convinced by traditional National guys that I had made a mistake…”this was no blues machine worthy of consideration when compared to a National”. As a compromise, they convinced me to swap out Matt’s cones for Nationals. The guitar never captured the magic it had when I first bought it so, embarrassed by my weakness, I sold it and moved on in silence. This year, I had the opportunity to see Charlie Parr at a small club in town. My heart swelled with warmth, and it was then I knew I had to right my wrongs (yes, Charlie plays a Mule resonator). Yesterday, I ordered a black resonator that Matt had put up on his site! I can’t wait to get my hands on it…and that neck…I miss it so much. In summary: 1) buy a Mule and 2) never miss an opportunity to catch Charlie Parr live.
