Silver Swan - Famous Ragtime Guitar Solo SCOTT JOPLIN



Now did you know that Scott Joplin also played acoustic guitar a century ago? I didn't think so either, however my never-ending research into the life of America's greatest composer brings so much rich, resplendent ,uh, non-White history.

I enjoyed that! I used to have an old Gibson guitar, not in the best of shape, but worth quite a bit. I had taken it to a shop to see if it could be repaired, pulled into my garage and some snow tires fell over and crushed it. I was crushed myself, but not by the tires. -sigh-

It's been said that the guitar is the easiest instrument to lean to play, but the hardest to learn to play well. I'd agree with that, although you can play pretty much any rock song with three chords, any country song knowing four.

Hope you've been feeling good. Meant to comment on your last post, but got busy and forgot. Regards!

Should have said I had taken the guitar out and propped it up under the tire rack while I was getting other stuff out of my car.

glad that you enjoyed that, Mike. So did I. Yeah, we are all well here. Very busy summer for us all. It's always great to hear from you.
