I’ve had the pleasure to be in a few bands with Johnny MacCree, including Smith’s Ranch Boys and Golden Hill Ramblers. It’s always fun when we have time to get together and play some music.
It’s great to see guitarist Smokey Hormel featured on the documentary web series Liner Note Legends. The series gives recognition and insight to the talented musicians behind the scenes who have played on recordings in all genres that everyone has heard. I really enjoyed hearing Smokeys story in his own words. When you have time, check it out.
January got off to a great start when Tommy and Nico stopped by the shop. We sat down for a little impromptu jam session.
Happy New Year everybody! Its been a while since we’ve posted but fortunately, the last few months have been really busy in the shop. We have a lot of things to share coming up but in the meantime, Sean Mencher recently sent me a link to this interesting blog post on guitarist Jimmy Raney that he wrote himself in ’93.
This is a direct re-post from a blog called Prepared Guitar. There are a lot of great interviews featured on the site like Johnny Smith and Tal Farlow to name a few, so when you have time, check it out. More links to Prepared Guitar at the bottom of the story. Thanks Sean for sharing with me.
