Eye of the Beholder, HMM

Looking Close... On Friday Theme: Musical Instruments. This giant Gibson laying on the floor of the expo could actually be played! There were tons of musical instruments and guitars of all kinds at the Guitar Expo, Exploration Place Museum, Wichita, Kansas 2016. I took my Mother to see the expo - she used to be in a country music band back in the 60s.

This Gibson guitar is on a Billboard on the side of a music store near us, something different from flowers,

Need to plug my Fender DeVille amp now:-)

White Bear has not been photographed in some time. He sits in the front window minding his own business and keeping some watch over a few guitars there.

Drums are my real thing but i do play guitar and keyboards for the writing portion.

This fantastic guitar sculpture is located along Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas. Designed by Craig Hein, this sculpture was part of a public arts project sponsored by Gibson Guitar, which resulted in a variety of guitar sculptures being displayed across the city for a time. I was glad to see this one while visiting Austin. Information from an online Austin Chronicle article.

The Gibson Guitar building, once symbolic of Nashville's vibrancy, now stands derelict in the heart of the city -- a relic of simpler days... A reminder that "progress" is a double-edged sword.

My best friend's husband plays in a band. He has two guitars and one of them is a Gibson. My friend's taking a photography course and we decided that his guitar would make a great subject. I used my macro to take this picture.

36x51cm on cold pressed Arches paper, some white gouache for highlights. The painting is for a 40th birthday of a guitar lover who suggested an abstract painting in which the very characteristic features of the model are visible, so this is my go at it with a realistic rendering and an abstract background, haha.

The Gibson Les Paul is a solid body electric guitar that was first sold by the Gibson Guitar Corporation in 1952. The Les Paul was designed by Gibson president Ted McCarty, factory manager John Huis and their team, along with guitarist/inventor Les Paul.

The Les Paul was originally offered with a gold finish and two P-90 pickups. In 1957, humbucking pickups were added, along with sunburst finishes in 1958. The sunburst 1958–1960 Les Paul – today one of the best-known electric guitar types in the world – was considered a failure, with low production and sales. For 1961, the Les Paul was redesigned into what is now known as the Gibson SG. This design continued as a separate guitar when the traditional single cutaway, carved top bodystyle was re-introduced in 1963. The Les Paul has been continually produced in countless versions and editions since. Along with Fender's Telecaster and Stratocaster, it was one of the first mass-produced electric solidbody guitars. Les Pauls have been used in many genres, including rock, country, pop, soul, rhythm and blues, blues, jazz, reggae, punk, and heavy metal.

Took a picture today of my prized Heritage H535 - Vintage Wine Burst.

Heritage Guitar was founded in 1985 by the former employees of the Gibson guitar factory located in Kalamazoo, Michigan. . In the early 1980s, Gibson was faced with excess production capacity and closed its historic Parsons Street factory in Kalamazoo. Some of the Gibson employees didn't want to move., so they started production of guitars under a new name, "Heritage," Today they make "handcrafted guitars built like no other".

In 1994, the Gibson Guitars Custom Shop built a limited production of 100 guitars, to commemorate their 1935 Roy Smeck Radio Grande. This is number 31/100, and according to the certificate of authenticity, it was purchased and used for stage work by well known instrumentalist, Norman Blake. I think Norman did not play it much, as the instrument is in like new, mint condition, except for some light finish crazing around the pick guard. Fujifilm X-A1 and XC16-50.

He likes to rock. Knows a pretty good guitar when he sees one. He fuzzy paws don't strum loud enough to hear it but he enjoys himself regardless.

one of my favourite songs that my father practiced endlessly on his Gibson guitar was the Jitterbug Waltz which was written by Fats Waller after listening to his son doing a piano exercise. I would never remember the name and would always ask for him to play "the bug song". He learned by ear and his favourite guitar player was Chet Atkins. This recording that I given a link to below is how I heard it when my Dad played it, oh so many years ago.

Another shot from the first night at Jays. My Dad with my brothers Gibson guitar. We are lucky that my dad taught us all how to play guitar. I wish I had an ounce of his talent. He's the best picker around.

30 second exposure around 11:00- midnight..

This is the headstock of my classic Gibson LG1 acoustic guitar. I've had it since the 1960s, and I'm pretty sure it dates back ten years before that. I like the cracks in the varnish - like an old oil painting. Sure, it's seen a lot of use through the years, though it sounds better than ever. It's a small-bodied guitar with a narrow neck and a bluesy sound. This is my photo for the Macro Mondays group, with the theme of "Musical Instruments". The "Gibson" logo is 1-1/2 inches across. HMM!

"First, prove your bona fides. Give me something linear, but good," said Rob.

 

"Do da Dunk do Dunk do da DUNK. Do da Dunk do Dunk do da dunk," responded Cherry.

 

"Good opening riff! Controlled!! Memorable. But your plucking is still in the realm of the norm in a linear world," said Rob. "Now surprise me. Sing me something nonlinear, glissando-like. Bend the rules of time and space. Wake me up. Break me outta this world!"

 

"HhhhhaaaaaAaaAaaAaAAAAAAYYYYYYYY, DO it nooow."

 

"Yeah!" shouted Rob. "That's what I'm talking about!! Lift off. Now scream it. PLAY that funky music."

“And somewhere in another place, who knows could be another life time, everything we gave away returns like a seed from a fugitive tree. And you only have to wait a little while before you find the truth.”

I was fortunate to get the opportunity to see M. Ward play at the State Theatre last night in Portland, Maine. Gibson guitars, Fender amps, and thoughtful lyrics… Pretty cool. I really like his music.

 

Additionally, the Lee Ranaldo Band opened the show. Seeing Lee (guitars and vocals) and Steve Shelley (drums) is probably as close as I’ll ever get to experiencing Sonic Youth in concert, so I’m pretty psyched. Very, very cool… I hope your weekend was as music filled as mine. Have a great week!
