Re: Hee Haw

Muskrat... Whoever owns the rights to Hee Haw has had most of the Hee Haw Youtubes pulled. It appears that the only Hee Haw clips are those that were taken off of private VCRs. One of my favorite parts of Hee Haw https://youtu.be/Fti0uOPlF58?t=136 I will keep looking, but I think Pffffttttt it is go...

Re: Glen's special Guitar Tuning?

Taki, Interesting. Something to kick around! Quick answer...I haven't a clue. For the fans...A cent is a measurement used to measure how far apart two pitches are and is equal to 1/100th of a half step. I think there are 1200 cents in an octave. It is certainly a precise measurement when tuning. The...

60's Fender Precision Bass

T he first Precision Bass was produced in October 1951. Leo Fender borrowed a lot of characteristics from the Telecaster at the time, including the headstock, neck plate, truss rod nut, and control knobs. The 1957 headstock was made in the image of the first 1955 Stratocaster and remains today. The...

Re: Glen and Elton John Collaborate on Elton's The Lockdown Sessions

Willie seems lackluster on most of his stuff now. I think his lung capacity has been greatly limited by age and maybe by excess...but he struggles with lyrics and rushes through them because of that...I believe. Nashville would have loved Glen to commit to CW. I think that is why Chet seemed a littl...

Re: Glen and Elton John Collaborate on Elton's The Lockdown Sessions

KMFrye54 Totally agree...and I could take either side of the conversation. But it is how things are done today. Whether the artists are dead or alive. Send me the * track and I will add (vocal, guitar, drum, whatever) Glen did nothing new for this record (for obvious reasons), so I think the respons...

Re: Glen and Elton John Collaborate on Elton's The Lockdown Sessions

Cowpoke, seemed odd to me that a "remake" would follow a "make" so closely. But maybe you have to look at the 4-5 year interim that existed prior to its release and maybe that is where this chapter gets legs. Maybe closer to 2014 than 2021? Maybe during that time, it was going to...
