Bill Frisell Visits The Desert

Last week I got to spend some time with Bill Frisell! And a week ago Friday, Jill, myself and about 40 others were lucky enough to hear Bill play a set at Joshua Tree’s Harrison house. I gotta say, if you’re looking for some inspiration do yourself a favor and catch one of Bill’s shows. It’s been a week and I’m still having a hard time putting my guitar down. Bill is playing his tele with one of my SV pickups. Plugged into my Airline amplifier Model No. 62-9020 A

Jimmy Bryant’s Four Star Session with Sammy Masters

I first heard these recordings back in the mid 80’s and they’re still at the top of my list of favorite ‘take off’ guitar playing. Bryant was so ahead of time. The other day I re-learned his ‘Some Like It Hot’ solo. I have no idea where he got the idea for the 4 bar lick he plays over the break. Maybe just an exercise? He plays something similar, out of the same pattern on ‘Rock City Boogie’. It’s cool whatever it is. My timing is off a bit and not as clean but here’s where I think he played it on the neck. Check out the original if you haven’t heard it lately.
