the future was awesome back then...if only - part 2

Roy Smeck

take some time to research this musician

if he has nothing to do with the future

don't subscribe

let alone listen

tapping from when?

so to get a perspective, who has learnt from this person?

go to the tube and check out Elliott Sharp.

he went on to check out Fibonacci tuning.

the genesis of an individual music.

and Tom - I KNOW it is a Ukulele!

this is earlier than the Italian guy everyone talks about.

the future was awesome back then...if only

if only the shock of the new was enough

reminds me of Speedy and Jimmy

check out Dave Bunker on Youtube

lots to see

plus Ralph Novak said you have to pay tribute to a true innovator

his site is here

more posts soon - just getting a second wind as some new guitar designs require a lot of preparation. stuff so complex I need to submit copy to pay tribute!

when modern history ends - so does...what? part 1

as far as guitar design goes, who defines new? 

I feel stupid talking about the idea of "new history"

does anyone want to go out on a limb and tell me when old history ended and new history began?

in relation to what?

let me cut to the chase.

people are making reproductions of classic guitars. beat up  like they have been played to death.

is that the equivalent of a civil war re-enactment?

what is the point of a civil war re-enactment?

is anyone going to change the result?

just to see what could happen?

an amazing modern history.

plus the saddest offer of all

anyone want to use these designs?

they are OPEN SOURCE!

with a duty of care

maybe look at this video

 the first question I asked without knowing about a time line was, when was this made?

looks like yesterday. no, strike that, today.

before I go ahead i would like to say that this is not an electric guitar

it is a semi-acoustic guitar. but that is obvious.

this is difficult - read the whole story from the home page

it is not so much something has ended

it is that a design is still alive and can be advanced.

a genius DIED in this process.

just look around.
