Tal Farlow Signature Gibson Guitar

This Guitar is from the 60s is very difficult to find

If you find a Tal Farlow Gibson the price is very high

Tal Farlow inspired many Jazz Musicians who did not Play Guitar

 

To me Tal Farlow, Johnny Smith and Pat Matheny

are the Best Jazz Guitarist that have ever made Records.

There was A Country Guitar Player in St. Louis who played B-Bop Jazz, Bobby Ward

Bobby Ward was in the Category of the Jazz Guitar Greats such as Johnny Smith and Barney Kessel. However Bobby Ward never made Recordings so you cannot listen to his music. This is most unfortunate. Recordings of Bobby Ward were made by DeWitt Scott at his International Steel Guitar Convention. It is too bad that Scotty will not make and sell CDs of the Genius Level Jazz Guitar of Bobby Ward.

Making a Living in Music -- Spotlighting Bobby Ward

Bobby Ward is a representation of the many great local Jazz Guitarist who never become know to the national audience. I have seen and heard many Jazz Guitar Greats who were strictly local Jazz Guitarists. And these Local Jazz Guitarist were every bit as good as the Jazz Guitar Greats who made it on a national scale of music.

Johnny Smith Signature Guild Guitar

Note the Single Floating Neck Pickup

This is what Johnny Smith Preferred His Personal Guitar to have

The Johnny Smith Award is the crown jewel in Fender's GuildŽ revival! Originally, this exquisite acoustic Archtop made its debut in 1956, as a collaboration between jazz guitarist Johnny Smith and Guild. It has been painstakingly redesigned by Bob Benedetto to meet the standards and specifications originally established by Smith. One slight modification was made in the design; the fingerboard extension contacts the top over a wider area, resulting in improved sustain for the highest notes.

Carved from the finest European Spruce and European Maple (back and sides), the beauty of this instrument is in its details; from the 5-piece Maple neck with a select Ebony fingerboard, to the distinctive Abalone and Mother-of-Pearl inlay and bone nut. A must-see, must-play for jazz guitar enthusiasts who appreciate fine craftsmanship and have an appreciation for historical relevance.

Google Streaming Video – Free to Everyone

 

 

Video Streaming is beginning to take off big time on the internet. Google is offering free Video Streaming to anyone and that includes more than music.

I checked out Google Streaming Videos the free Videos from the Unsigned Artists are pretty bad as videos and the level of music artistry is pretty low. The Musicians have someone with a Video Cam to take a pictures of them singing or playing the Guitar or whatever. Of course the musicians are thrilled to see themselves on the Internet, on the Google Free Streaming Web Site and I suppose friends and family like the very amateur level videos of someone they know. But the average person cannot be much turned on by the very amateur level Videos the Unsigned Artists are posting on Google Free Video Streaming.

Will some worth while Music Videos come from local and unsigned musicians in the future? Good question and one that I cannot answer. Local Bands can get fairly decent recordings made of their music, or do it themselves. Making Music Videos that are worth watching is much more difficult than recording the sound, just the music with no pictures.

The sound and video quality is often not good on the home Music Videos. However there is something refreshing and enjoyable about watching the home music videos that are on Google. The Streaming home music videos on Google have a kind of lure that brings you back again and again.

On Google Video you can search for about any type of music you can imagine.

It’s kind of fun to watch the homemade Videos at:

http://video.google.com/

 

Since Google is a search engine Google Video is set up so you can search on most anything.
