Teen Shot by Maryland State Trooper
"Washington post today filled with all of the abominations. Of the Democrat Party posing as journalism masquerading as journalism. And I got to the last page of the local news section. The Metro section the B section. If you go to the last page below the weather, and I'm not kidding, it's below the weather. Seen fatally shot by state trooper Now this is yesterday in the Washington metropolitan area, which is the You know, the rectal aperture of the news universe I think and a teenager with a replica gun was fatally shot Tuesday in a confrontation with the Maryland state trooper. State police said. The youth, identified by police as Peyton Ham, 16 years old, was shot in the Leonardtown area of ST Mary's County Police said he lived near where the incident occurred. Place that the teenager confronted a trooper with what turned out to be an air soft gun. A toy gun A, which shoots nonmetallic pellets, The Washington Post says the other non metallic because they're foam their little yellow foam balls and therefore should not your brother across the dinner table. Police said it resembled a real gun sound like Tamir Rice when to the riots begin, state police said The trooper was sent to the scene after two calls reported a male who was acting suspiciously and apparently had a gun. That's exactly what happened in the Tamir Rice case, precisely and exactly Police said A witness told them that ham the 16 year old took a shooting stance in quotation marks and was pointing his gun at the trooper before the trooper fight exactly like to memorize. Now. Here's the very important sense that this is the only sentence that matters. The Trooper and ham are both white Police said There was no indication that hands gun was not a real weapon, see how the standard has changed. Now there has to be proof that it's not a real weapon. That's the opposite of the standard that it was applied before after being wounded, and I've got to say I find this part to be a bit difficult to believe. After being wounded him. 16 year old boy with an air soft gun produced a knife, Uh, witness recounted because he's like Rambo on a suicide mission with an air soft gun and after he shot his air, soft gun laying next time he pulled out a white knife because he's with al Qaida is something I got a little trouble believing that part Ham died at the hospital, so
Trevor Lawrence Responds to Critics
"Want to transition a little bit of nfl because obviously the next big thing on the nfl draft calendar or on the sports counter really is the nfl draft. And it's kind of crazy because there are so many different narratives that are popping up mack. Jones moving updraft boards justin field potentially moving down draft boards. So narratives going on. And so what. I kinda wanna do. That was a new piece of information that came out today. That really leads to an older piece of information from earlier this week that i want your opinion on and so listen. It's draft season. You hear all sorts of crazy stuff but there was a report out a lengthy report from the athletic earlier today which which which interviewed a bunch of anonymous gm's and coaches and stuff like that and so it said in this athletic report. You told me that justin field was going to be better than trevor lawrence and five years. I would say yes that could happen. That was an anonymous. Gm told that to the athletic. And so i thought that quote was kind of interesting in the context of what happened earlier this week with trevor lawrence. I know you and chris touched on it briefly but for the audience. That hasn't fully heard the quotes. I'll read it really quick robin than i want your response but trevor lawrence of course the presumptive number pick. Since the beginning of time no one has ever debated his place as the best player in this draft. He sat down for a pretty lengthy interview with sports illustrated and he said a few different things where he said. It's hard to explain that. Because i want people to know that i'm passionate about what i do and it's really important to me but i don't have the huge chip on my shoulder that everyone's out to get me and i'm trying to prove everybody wrong. I just don't have that. I can't manufacture that. I don't want to and i think that people mistake debt for not being competitive. I think that's unhealthy to certain extent. He's talking about that chip. Just always thinking that you've got to prove somebody wrong. You've got to do more. You've got to be better

What It Means When Children Are Under Fire
"We have a full house today though. Chris ted and john can you introduce yourself. Hi everyone. i'm chris brown. I'm the president of brady and hi everybody. My name is ted bonar. I'm a clinical psychologist and the director of an family fire and then sort of our man of the hour. Is it strange when you walk into a virtual meeting space and everyone just holds your book up with notes and says okay. Let's get started on delighted. Delighted actually see it in the world. I've been living with it for the weird thing about a book. You know you finish it so long ago and then you wait and you wait and you wait and then suddenly you actually see it out there so now it's it's always a thrill to see waved around admit meetings okay. That's that's a relief. I'm glad we didn't scare you. John and would you mind telling your listeners. A little bit about yourself as well as your great buck children under fire. Sure my name is john. Woodrow cox. I'm a staff writer at the washington post. And i'm the author of children under fire in american crisis. The sort of the short summary of the book is it's meant to be really an intimate account of the way that gun. Violence devastates this country and anna anna. Also a bit of a path forward in ways that we could make some small differences to help those kids both before and after they suffer trauma from gun wiles. I think intimate is a perfect word to describe this book as you detail. The ways in which children are impacted by gun violence through stories of a handful of children. What i'm wondering is what prompted you to write. Not just about the physical effects of gun violence in what that effect is on children but the psychological ex i think that so much of the coverage around the way that kids are impacted by gun. Violence focuses on the kids who get shot. We have such a narrow focus. And this really applies. I think to adults as well. There's this really narrow focus on and that's the headlines. I mean we can look at what happened yesterday. As an example. There's a school shooting all the cable news. Networks make a calculation to say. Let's wait and see how many people died right. One person died they move on. That's not an high enough death

"chris and." Discussed on Chris and Rick Talk Guitars
"Telecaster and love it. If I had a second telecast your that's what I would get the double bounce on burst sixties custom. Yeah I have I have to have a black guard Atelli for wow. That's all I had was until I know I wanted to have a black guard but yet I always wanted one of those too. Yeah but I don't know I'm more Gibson these last few years. I've spent more wartime playing Gibson while you've got some Coghlan's but they're all right but my my telecaster goes on anytime recording. It'll fit in there somewhere. Is They just record. So yeah and and again like it's so funny because I I don't know why but I just it's guitar that I never really played. I never owned one when I was younger. And then and later I got that Pinup and then I got this one and it's just a great guitar. It's got the Rosewood. Fret Board I swapped it's got those weird sixties. These saddles that are kind of grooved. Row You know what I mean. I took those off and put the brass rats one's a little more. They're okay but now they seems weird. I always thought that I thought like like those threats are going to fuck with the strings. That's what I thought too. You know it just makes you uncomfortable. Look within definitely sounded a little different. They both work. But I'd probably favor the brass and that's what I did. I it just a great little guitar. I've been so that's new. I've been playing the heck out of that thing And it's funny I. I've been looking at those the S.. Jeez that are the same era as Paul. Those are great. They're frigging awesome man. So so I've been down that rabbit hole of kind of going online and looking at those those going for. I think it goes to the polls I think they are. I don't I can't cite a number but I think you're right. I think they're they're they're the cool thing about that and we're talking about the Gibson's budget or guitar is like they made the Paul which I have one and they made the s g and the cool thing about the G. is it has a wide neck and regular standard. As during that period. They have a skinnier next. It's not for everybody a lot of people don't like the next next on the S G so this one has a full size neck. It's very I mean. I'm still glued to my up all play all the time. If I'm recording. Yeah I might reach for something else but I love that fricking cool. Yeah the S G deadly. I think they ask. G. Looks a little because it looks more like just been each as that. Walnut fits that guitar so it does that very attractive. So that's kind of my exactly. That's yeah so anyway the rabbit hole. I've been going down in terms of like coveting a new piece of gear is just like you will. I know it was cool. You Oh by the way. Hey I wanted to. Since we're talking about amps I'll go back to the AMPS You were talking about your cool new solid state Acquisition it reminded me of a coup lamp. Ah I had a dean Markley. Single Twelve Combo to channel back in the day that was it was a hybrid. It was it was a term those lusato convertible now. I don't think it was. It was a convertible had the modules. Exactly this was not that but it was a it was a hybrid how to to preempt and then it was solid state but was two channels and it was really a cool and that was really compact and portable and that was such a a good tool i. I played that on a lot of different stuff. Gigs recording stuff like that and You sent me a picture of one of the demarcus from that era era. Yeah that totally okay. No but speaking. You're reminded me of of after you're talking about the martial solid state and so again again. I think it's interesting because that was still in that weird wild west of when people were experimenting with Solid State. This was the eighties nineties and I think they kinda on a hit the gym have they started to hit the mark more. But I think some you know I'm really interested in solid state always ban Dan even though I don't own any of it but I mean companies like acoustic. They nailed it pretty early on. I mean for Bass or guitar. Out of those old acoustic amps are gray. There were two other companies. That really. I mean you know kind of in the beginning they want. They didn't sound so great. It took them a while even by his own admission the PB guys admission. It took them awhile to get it. But who else had I had. A lab series wasn't the best sounding solid-state anti ever had had. What would you Yamaha solid state was I had see? I didn't really dig it. It was a Yamaha g one hundred to twelve. It was like the twin killer supposedly. I don't like it had a really really cold sterile. Sound the thing about when whenever you start talking solid state amps even more so than two baths. You'RE GONNA find people that they have you. You know my the thing that I don't like somebody else really likes the J. C.. What's the JC one twenty like the classic like Clean Ap Oh jazz chorus of the GI? Yeah I got an undeniably lush chorus sound but the sound of the emphasis is cold and sterile. But there's a million people it's a classic people who liked me. I like the dark sounding like the Gibson. NORLIN era lab series AMPs DOTS goes. Were great I'd love to have one of those who I mean but I mean I had the L. Seven and actually the L. Seven. I got rid of to get. I needed something smaller so I got abandoned sixty five peavy that was I mean. That was a really warm. I mean you could crank it. It never got cold edgy to solid state. So that's great and I I think. Bb King played until his death. While I think they were jazz they're known for jazz players and Yeah I think he did play a labs heroes Montross. I think he played one tool. They're crazy easy unfortunate because the entire time I had that I was kind of between bands. Yeah so I never got to play it much live but the couple of times I did get to play it live it. It was just like home like to banff and it's interesting like it just. It didn't wash out or didn't feel like thin or cold. It was it was great. That's cool yes solids. I'm trying to think Galleon Krueger. Little guy well respected. Yeah Yeah I had in Wash Yo. Hey Man Hello. Hello yes I had one of those two and it was kind of cool but it was again like. I don't think I spend enough time with it dialing it in and you don't even I was too impatient and to I don't know distracted acted stolen. I know I would love to hear somebody else that I couldn't hang with back in the day there was a lot of PD stuff that plea deuce and more of the things that I thought. Oh cool big. The aunt plugged in and I couldn't get a sound out of it. I I would love to try to get. I'm sure I could. I mean once you start to learn the quirks. I mean that Marshall that we're talking about this lead twelve it's it's super easy to make that sound like shit. It's like if you're not you know if you don't take around with it and figure out its essence. I mean it just sounds like shit I mean there's some some two baths yeah oh for sure you want to see I can make sound like there's so many ways to show John was mark and Oh my God I was like it was like the cockpit of a seven forty seven. I never knew what to do. You can also make him sound great. Yeah you just got you. I know we're happy anchor to who though and there were tiny like the single commas weighed like as much as Marshall Half Stack. I don't know what the deal was a princeton that they crammed a basement Jesse as their in a big heavy ask. What's Your Voice? Transformer had to wailing fifty pounds or totally portable though. It's not just back. GimMe Dahlie in a carry this thing now. We went from solid state over it back to two. We're covering all man while we're checking Khanin. Early Sounds Day. I'll go back for just a while I received a broken acoustic was at one thirty or one fifty. We are from probably the very early seventies. We had something it was a guitar amp but the guitar and the bass amp are almost exactly the same except for the guitar. Our APP has reverted and the river channel was blown on this thing. It was just. I just couldn't get it to work so I just bypass that and just use. The Base Channel Am for Bass Guitar. That thing sounded so awesome crazy for base. It was just had you know even when you pushed it it just had this really cool like almost like a compressed like I'm over uh-huh Tube overdrive thing to it but it was a very respectable guitar. Sound is known as the head. Oh Okay and I plugged into that to ten. That's cool there and and it just sounded great so yeah I love that there again. There are just unlikely little gyms out there that you know the. That's kind of the cool thing is is never write anything off really. Try it out and see if there's something to it and if there is you know you might be able to get this cool jam because nowadays it's hard hard to find those right like all the brand names you know. People are charging crazy prices for all the vintage gear right. But there's a lot of stuff out there that is is kind of under the radar that you could get her. Oh yeah the music used to be one of. I love that thing and that's cool cool man. I'm glad you're I'm I kind of want to play through that I might borrow it from just see. Maybe we can do a slop blocks. But because I'm a sucker you we're both sucker for Marshall that sound that that overdrive sound fun. Yeah it's gorgeous slightly more than wilty it's useful. It's really it pulls stuff audio like I was saying with that. That dude in his amp videos you can. There's stuff that you'll get out of that just plugging into and it's cool to have it in such a small package. It's like think I love it. It's handsome cool well. I'm glad you know you've made a new acquisition. Now you've got to put vox on your list and check that box off and it never. It never ends now all right. No not until your state sale. I will not rest until Gibson S G that I know I expect to see links. I said to me right. Yeah well this is cool check in. We should do this more. Okay up to. We'll do Chris and I don't talk.

"People had for building these instruments and stuff and listening to players Trumped you know. I mean formal educations great but I mean you know Leo had a gift for this stuff and he had his radio repair stuff and all this stuff so he had experienced doing this but I thought it was cool. How like his sales team? Everybody at fender really didn't have formal degrees. But they were making this thing work and and at the time you know. They sold the company for thirteen million bucks. which was just unheard of that? You know Don Randall. China was beside himself because he thought you know what we'll get three three million. Maybe you're some thirteen million. It ended up getting for the company but I just thought that was cool and then of course you know the CBS years they eh. Those being countered Dick Heads. I wasn't really aware of before was how scared fender was of solid state technology. Because he wasn't isn't trained for that you're right. That was more. He was just like taught himself tubes. You know and that's easy for someone to take on the the advent of transistors and sister stuff he's like. I'm going to be out of a job I can't you know I don't know this stuff. Well enough yes so that was pretty interesting because I had never thought of that. Before and then. Interestingly enough they come the first solid state amps and they're just dog cry. No I thought that was cool too because I had. I had no idea about that too. But it was fascinating to see where he kind of saw his own limitations as a as an engineer. It's like well. I know this stuff but I know nothing about transistors and if wants that stuff takes over done yeah I thought that was security on his part of this dude did a revolutionary things. kind of like scared of transistors. Coming down the road yeah. I thought that was fascinating coming to well. Cool Man Yeah I. I'm so glad you recommended that book to me. I I totally dug it a page Turner. We recommend it again.

Let's talk about. I'd love to well. We both have gigs coming up. The same one's let's take. Let's see way way back when we were first starting to play guitar I remember I. I was taking lessons from a friend of mine. You know just learning classic songs of the Day But I really never played with anybody I I take the back my brothers drummer so he and I so I kind of had a head start he and I would play and together but not a full band and then once I started to play with other musicians is it was like Oh shit I gotta figure this out like You know if there's another guitar player or whatever there isn't this band I have to find my place in here and not piss on everybody else and make it work as a Combo and so. I think that's that's cool to to to start to do that. Because it'll it'll really teach you about how you fit into to that kind of situation. What do you think I agree? Of course you do. When was let me ask you something when you're first performance in front of people? Oh my gosh vaguely. Yeah can you nail down. The era was seventy seventy seventies. Yeah and so it was probably You know oh it was yeah it was a trio yeah my brother number and the trio back then and well. That's playing music and I think it was had had to be like a party. It was a party. Yes and yeah I I am I am. I'm shy introvert so of course I was terrified. I'm still I still get a little nervous before I play but yeah but it was a party. Like a House Party and It was fun and scary and exhilarating all at the same time I am but again that the thing about a trio is you. You have a more latitude right with Egypt's right because you've got to fill that space which I kinda dig. And that's it's interesting that you remind me of that because I that's kind of where I that's kind of ground zero for me like is that trio dynamic and I think I've carried that with me throughout my playing and like playing with view I had to really get into the space of like. Hey there's another guitar player here. We can't just play the same thing we have to complement each other Ryan fit as a Combo. Oh so yeah how about you I I. I was thinking about this my first time. I didn't have a full band but the first time playing in front people was meeting. Another guitar are player. Who put together like a set of music and played a couple of parties and it was Super Fun and that was that I was instantly hooked on it but we worked worked out a set and did a lot of like? ACDC aerosmith things like that. s- some Some deep purple and whatnot and half the first party. If I remember correctly it was like this was in rural Michigan. So put a bunch of flyers with like hundreds of people jets thing and we were playing in his pole barn earns so that was a great experience. It's just looking out and seeing all these people but people dug eight. which is you know? I find hard to believe. It's like just two guitar players up there making racket by love being in a small town like that. It was kind of a rare thing to use it to guitars guitars and housing. Who and the other guitar players sang is name was berry? Francis Kuzan tempered Michigan in probably seventy nine loved that. Yeah that was that was it and shortly after that I did manage in that small ass town to wrangle a bass player and a drummer and then from there we started playing live all the time about was the other guitar player to visit so now he left he moved. He moved to Los Angeles. I believe stay like nineteen eighty or something so I had to find other people to play with so put together just crappy cover band and being the small or the big fish in the small pond who glade constantly left to play in the bars we played in the bars but parties everywhere where you mentioned parties and that was yeah you know even through the eighties and parties where some of the funniest ever free for all kind of like just play all all night and yeah have fun now. I'm curious to know like how because I know that you're very like at this point in your playing. You're very mindful of how to fit into a Combo. Is a guitar player playing with Qatar players. Did that was that always the case. Or when you're young now we've got two guitars just rock. No Ah for them for a long time. Probably almost all the way through the news. I was like you in a situation where I was the only guitar player and I've actually learned to hate that after a while. It's just like you know. Oh I love coming up with parts interplay between another guitar but that was yeah. I can't think of I mean I think in one of those bands way back there. We try to a rhythm guitar for a while but it didn't work out for whatever reason but now I was a three piece all the way up until very ninety s or something. Yeah Well I. I know that when I've played with other guitar players in whether it's just jamming or In a band situation. That's always been the challenge for me but but it reminds me it reminds you right away. It's like when you're playing song. It's like okay. Well the to Qatar is we got to figure this out. You know we gotTA. We can't just occupy the space. Because that's pointless right you've got to come up with And that's why I really dug jamming your band Lowland high because you had great songs number one and number two. You were very thoughtful about guitar parts. And I think we we're both in the same mind space of trying to come up with melodic meaningful parts rather than just wanker. A I mean we you know I love angry like the guy but yeah but but I also love like melody and making parts that fit into a song gracefully some right like probably being raised on stuff like aerosmith and you. You know other bands like that where there are just like these two guitars scanner somewhere that very good example. Yeah I mean I. I've never been in a three guitar band but I think that would be really cool. I'd love to try. Yeah because I think I mean that's what's for me. That's one of the joys of playing guitar is creating parts. Just you know taking Simone's what they're playing look at what they're playing. Listen where it sitting and come up with a part that complements it. You know that when you take him apart it sounds we take away from each other. It sounds totally different together at makes you know a a really cool part. Yeah I agree. It's very fun and that that's a great. Those are great examples. Two of a skinner like they were so artful in the way they integrated all those guitars. Together it's insane. And what was the drive by truckers. Was I think they ahead on more than two guitar players. I believe so and they kind of the same thing all these parts that are very unique on their own but you put them together and you have the sound sound a plate with Dr truckers tribute band. Oh that's cool like a couple of months ago or something and that's one thing immediately when the band started playing is it remaining reminded me of the drive by truckers and how unique their sound was cool. That like I don't know if they D- tune their eastern or something that really gnarly like Hurrell and yeah and that was developed from you know guitar players coming together and thinking about shit and coming up with a sound super cool it is cool and that's why like I have acquaintances Quainton and or people I've come across play are starting to play guitar or played guitar for Awhile. For instance and haven't really jammed with anybody else. They've just which is cool but I I always I always encourage them to go go to jam. Sessions are open mics or jam with other people because it it will help your guitar playing number one and it will also just be this fun exercise of figuring out how you fit into that Combo right. Maybe they have keyboards right another guitar player and keyboards. It's like okay. Well how should I got to figure out how I'm I'M GONNA fit into this Combo. And I've only played with keyboardist very Sparingly but I really enjoy that because it's another like a Hammond B right when I was young. MJ We did we did that. Guy Was playing Oregon. It's so cool but again it's like you know not only what you play but but the dynamics of your playing right. It's like Wendy Lake. Ease up on the on your playing and went to like cut into it and all that other stuff are all important things. The dynamics things I find really interesting too. Because People's perception of what dynamic playing is a little bit different and I remember being in bands that were kind of like kind of mellower quieter quieter song valid he type stuff and then some some routes rocky stuff at the top and allowed times people's approach to that is like all. You're you're not allowed rock band. Just turn everything anything down my approach is you have to be able to take it somewhere to hurt somebody to make to make the dynamic available exactly and then you know I love the sound amount of a super loud guitar played with restraint and plays quietly. There's you know there's there's the dynamics that I can hear every little aspect of the playing you can in here but if you're just gonNA grind down a bunch of cords. Yeah that's not going to work very well. So having the dynamic range available all is what I love about dynamic playing with bands and as a band knowing in that particular band where you're places like a ban should be able to set up in any club and you know get their sound because it's like they know how to play with their band and sure you know some of the bigger clubs are GonNa Mike everything anything and you're going to have somebody out you know mixing but you should be able to make yourself on stage and you know most of the bands that I've played in do that really well and I like that too as I play for the the song and the band I mean that's one aspect of playing live that you get to learn just from doing it a lot. Yeah and that's the thing. I still struggle with to this day is like like you said is is is is I like to turn all my shit up my amp but like you know my guitars dimed all the time. But but I have experimented with that with with like rather than playing like with pedals and like okay. I have my bass sound and then if I kick this on get more you know grind or whatever it is but I I like your approach approach because you have this base sound that is just your sound and then you you. It's it's it's loud but you play with the dynamics of the guitar like how softly you picked guitar or how much you dig into it and so I've been trying to do that as I play it is that is really cool because I think it's it gives you you again for me it it. It's a different way of playing because like I said before. I've just dined everything on my guitar. And that's like okay. This is my sound and I play. I would like lighten up on my picking being from time to time or something like that but but exactly my paradigm was clean sound and then this other sound rather than just the sound I can manipulate. You know like you do which I think is cool. Yeah I mean part of that comes from just being lazy and taking that I mean more big things about playing live for me that I had issues within the past having too much shit or having too much shit to think about the onstage like you know like my I got a dial down to where my aunt has basically volume tone and you know in volume in a couple of tones things. Yeah so that's really cool and it's been solid I've used it since ninety eighty six. It's been soured. I can trust it. So that's something I don't have to think about. And then you know..
"chris and." Discussed on Chris and Rick Talk Guitars
"Hey Chris Tucker Guitars ktar unplugged today. We're GONNA talk about Acoustic Guitar and how because mostly I think Chris Krizner I get in the electric phase where we're playing electric guitars. All the time even unplugged. I do that all the time just knocking around the house. Pick up electric. I don't plug it in but I- punk around on it and I just I just have I have my comfort zone right where I just play all my trite bullshit the knife played for years and and then I pick up the acoustic and there's a whole new world outright bull waiting for ESPN. Yeah my acoustic trite bullshit that I play but Chris Chris you want to speak to like the fact that kind of cool dynamic of like playing an electric a bunch of times and then picking up an acoustic and it's different. It's totally different. It's a great way to to switch things up. If you ever feel like you're in a Rut I I've just done that recently. Which is why I kind of like talk about it. I got back from Michigan in a trip to Michigan and hung on brother who share a love for like bluegrass music. Ogle hymie stuff and he brought some instruments he brought a Banjo Joe Mandolin and tar and from that trip I came back with acoustic on the brain so for the first time in quite a while I pulled out the my flat top yeah I just spent the last three weeks just solely playing that and it just like a wakened that whole love for that style of playing which is as you say completely completely different than playing. The Electric Guitar Is Different. It's a different world and not only do. I find myself when I'm in that space playing differently. The world around me starts to reveal things I would have missed like watching television show and you kind of keen on acoustic music and just the way that it sounds and ways presented in the context of the song so it's a great head space to get into and then to ramble on some more after I got back. I had an electric show with my John. I love cover band last night and I was playing played. The telecaster and there are some songs where I found some of the stuff that I have been kind of playing Acoustic Acoustic Guitar kind of weasel its way in their merrily some flat picking stuff that I was doing more would have in the past done kind of like my bastard version of flat picking where it's just weird alternate thing. I've been focused more on straight flat. Picking a seamlessly integrated a straight flat picking style in a song that would have been my messed up up alternate picking. That's great. That's cool and what am. I even talking about your too much. Talk more about kind of how it changes your head space about playing right because on an electric. Usually you know you've got a lighter gauge strings and you bend a lot and play. You're playing different but talk about how it is for you you as a player like you know. How does it change for you. Well specific ways find myself going more for a lot more open chord voicing SAMSA capable will come in more often the acoustic guitar because it just gives you those nice open chord voicing anywhere up the neck and just you know the dynamics that are completely different. I mean it's really even a great sounding acoustic can be made sound pretty horrible. If you like a really heavy hand and you you don't know key into the dynamics and know your instrument and know how to make it you know as dynamic as possible and that's what I love. I spent a long time playing guitar on the couch uh-huh quietly and it's it's a very dynamic guitar and just playing with the way it sounds and that's another thing that you can bring over to the electric guitar you you know some of the alternate ways that you'll get dynamics out of certain things so cool. I love going back and forth between them nice but I also like camping camping out like I've been doing for the last three weeks camping out and that's my one of my thing when I have for my allotted guitar time today. It's going to be on the Acoustic Guitar. That's cool yeah and I noticed the same thing like I'll go along time without even cracking the case of the the acoustic and then I'll I'll finally go back to it and yeah totally changes how I play you know because the strings are heavier. You know I'm not gonNA bend those strings and like you said to Cabo. If I'm singing along to stop for just plunking around but yeah that is one of the things I like about it just the way it changes your head space about thinking how to play in what to play and and like I said before like I do have some trite stuff that I fall back on in terms of licks and things like that but like you were even saying to you you were focusing on your alternate nitpicking which I've struggled with over the years I just I think we both have adapted a style that works for us right to when we need to play a little faster astor or or even the same speed but get that there's some things you could only get with certain runs and lines that only sound correct alternate pecked yeah and and even though you know one of the reasons I can alternate pick. You know my weird bastard version of like flat picking her damn fast but it doesn't sound quite quite like that unless you're hitting those alternate just up down up down. You know run. A long run doesn't sound quite right so and that's the other thing that found that Capelli frustrating for I mean I think you and I've been playing guitar about the same amount of time and you build a lot of bad habits but also you seem to think that there's somehow since you've been been playing for so long and you've achieved a certain level of being familiar with the instrument and how to get some things out of it. You think that there's somehow going to be a shortcut to cracking some code so you can just I'm just going to take this really fast. Flat baking fiddle tune and put it into my plane. Just I just got to find out the secret code and there is not right I mean when I what we talked about like when we were into bluegrass or whatnot finding the youtube videos with the killer bluegrass people into how do I crack this code. I can play yeah we could and it's not there and this last bit of guitar like Hunker. Down that I did on the flat type. One thing that was kind of revealing to me is I've just been saying. I want to really get a better flat picking style so I'm going to start and I'm GonNa do these things that are uncomfortable for me. I can't do very fluid fast. I'm just GONNA work on those US and after about three weeks I can finally see that. It's a little bit easier do so there is no way to get that you just have to do that and it's really it's really really satisfying to to spend that much time with it and now pick it up and go. I can do this three weeks later. I can do this pretty easily naturally before it was really awkward going a certain direction you know. Maybe it's during a certain run. There's one part of the run that you know you're my poor. Have it like flat picking technique skit stepped up and now after three weeks I can go through that part no problem and that's very satisfying imagine I mean we're kind of focusing on bluegrass and and I'm only focusing on that simply because it's got such a distinct flack picking style and that's what attracts me to the guitar that most is like flat picking the chords words and playing runs inside while you're playing the chords and things like that that you mentioned that you're into finger style. That's kind of your thing. I love that stuff talk about that. Didn't you say that you were taking collazo. Why it took a workshop one day workshop with a Guy 'cause I yeah I love like Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed and Doc Watson and those guys that could play finger finger style amazingly and like you're saying I mean we I I've been playing along time as long as you have and I've gotten a set of shops as as a result of my playing but then you know you listen to these guys and go okay. That's doable. Maybe I mean it and then you try. It and you're like Shit. No it's like this is going to take me a long time and so that's that's my frustration. Is I played such a long time and I can do all this other shit but I don't have the patience to lake do the diligent. We're like you're saying like just I gotta just hunker down. There's there's no shortcut and they just got a practice and focus on it and do it in a start in a remedial way because it's I don't play that way but yeah so and again like like like we were talking about before about different ways to inspire ourselves as players. We talked about other things in the past but in terms of acoustic. That's something that one of the Times I really enjoyed Loyd was on. You and I was going down that rabbit hole of bluegrass artist and morning because I saw teen yeah because I was working on my i. I forget what song was remember. I was telling you got. I finally got that run members. They play for you. Yes that's and I was driving. Everybody around me crazy. Yeah everybody plays that busted out team spirit exactly and yeah my wife was like Oh my God. You've been playing that because it's the same run I was trying to get over and over and over again but that's what you gotta do in order to try to do it right with the cadence of up and down taking and stuff but so you're right it. That's the kind of thing I need to stick with. I gotta get to the point where okay I've done it a lot enough time where now I can start to see a little improvement and then that's the inspiration to go okay cool. I'm going going down this road and it was cool when you're telling me that about your latest endeavor with the Acoustic and you just said I'm going to hunker down and get this up down picking down because and I know there's no shortcut shortcut but I'm just going to stick with it until and sure enough. You saw a little improvement and cool in your mouth. Stick with it a little longer. No I definitely I wanna I wanNA bring that in because like I said for for years I mean my band I mean I have things that we've played in recorded yet not if you listened to it it's like wow that's really fast alternate picking but it's not really hundred percent alternate..

"Hey everybody it's chris and rick top guitars. That's chris over there how you doing. I'm rick <hes> we're gonna do this. One <hes> chris going back to the motherland to michigan and we decided to do a podcast before he leaves <hes> and it's going to be about two ni guitar we've kind of alluded to it in the past but chris has a lot of thoughts on tuning guitars and why don't you talk a little bit about that chris well my thoughts on tuning guitar it stemmed from i just recently saw video you know you're watching youtube and you're looking at videos of rock and roll band serving that and something pops up on the right hand side. I saw the video that said tuning. Your telecaster caught my attention or guy too and i clicked on it. Some dude turns out east from seattle is name. Is tim lurch coach. I think that's his name. I think that is his name and he's talking. He's like waiting to telecasters and he's had this whole thing talking about tuning the telecaster and brought back ah flood of memories. It's been a long time since i had to deal with any sort of tuning issues because i have these guitars for a long time now and it got me thinking that tuning tuning might be kind of an interesting topic to talk about because it's something you don't really think about until you need to think about it and if you do think about sometimes you can like increase. You're playing and you know get better tone. I just thinking about to me. I think you're right so that got me thinking about tuning and i thought let's talk about tuning very that's very inspirational and i'm in tune with that well so right off the bats so do you want to talk about tuning telecaster to start with their general tars and tuning something i think when everybody starts out they have enough shit it to worry about like oh. How do i make this accord or high fingers like yeah. My fingers hurt. It's really hard to fucking play. This toll. I'm listening to the song on his record. In coming anywhere anywhere near the last thing from their mind probably is like tuning used to inner whatever get it close and your ears aren't really that adjusted adjusted to like hearing what an a really tuned guitar supposed to sound like i think a lot of people are like me in that they were playing for a while and suddenly they reached that point in their playing when they started to hear the inherent out of tunis of the scale guitar is based on yeah and it starts to drive be fucking nuts. I remember going in like i'm gonna to misdee- cord so i'd tuned. Cord and strom it that sounds perfect hit like a c. or an athens you sound like shit yeah and that got me exploring and i learned about the equal tempered tuning system or whatnot which anybody that's interested in can google that and look for some information in there and then i became hyperfocused super focused about tuning and i went through that whole period and then finally just came up with a system that works for me to keep my guitars into play into cool so so i think a good way to break this out might be talking about. Maybe general tuning staying in tune tuning issues things like that. What would you like to talk about well. There's the things that you and i have talked about which is just actually stringing guitar which the myth about like. I don't even know what you call it but putting the string through the whole in wrapping it back around and then putting that into the string under the.
"chris and." Discussed on Chris and Rick Talk Guitars
"Hello, everybody. This is Chris. And Rick talk tars. That's Chris over there. And I'm Rick. And today, we're going to talk about gear, and moose ni-. Yeah. Holly. We all have gear guitars. Amps pedals, you name it juice. Harps harmonkha 's what else Chris, I dunno saw the saws sign whistle side whistles, and we're going to talk about how that relationship, I guess, between people and their gear and is it inspiring to them. How is it inspiring to them? Does it make you want to write songs, does it make you want to try to get better at your particular instrument kind of that stuff? Yeah. So what do you think Chris somehow? So first of all, you are singer songwriter. Talk about maybe certain pieces of gear you have that really inspire you to write songs or have inspired you to take a different direction and a song or something like that. Yeah. I used to be way, more into some writing. It was like my thing that I did. And I was like, I got a four track in the nineties, and I kinda it was, like my best friend. I just worked that four track and got so much music out of that and interact with daily, and I did have a particular guitar. It was a guild hall. Mahogany body guild Cousy guitar that was like my songwriting partner. I did for years, everything I wrote started on me sitting down with guild. And when I first got it, there was rush of creativity where, you know, wrote like five six songs right away because you're so into it, there's a way it sounds, there's a way it records and gradually over the years. I've kind of gotten away from that. It seems like probably in the last maybe. Six or seven years, everything I right now is on electric guitar really weird because I get, you know, it used to be out use electric guitar as tool for building out parts of a recording the song written. It's already done. Acoustic guitar now. I need some, some flavor. So I'll get the electric car. Maybe I'll come up with a part of create apart. But the hosts itself was came about from me, interacting with that guilt guitar interesting. And now what are you tribute to that change? Do you think where it was like previously, you were just it was all that acoustic. That was kind of your starting off point. And now it sounds like it's kind of transition to electric our way into acoustic guitar as part of songwriting, I started becoming a songwriter, kind of at the folk level where, you know, you sit with a piece of paper and acoustic guitar and you write a song. So the process was pretty much ingrained is like that's what you do to get a song got it. And so, I guess. I only have one electric guitar morning Cousteau guitar at the time. And then I wanted to little Jag where I was into electric guitars telecast, and that's I was happy. That's all I need is telecaster. So that was my electric and my guilty Cousy. But then I started to crave different flavors of electric guitars. Like I wanna get home booker's I wanna p ninety and at that point, I started interacting on a daily basis with electric guitars. Interesting. And I felt the need to write some songs. So instead of getting the Coosa Qatar, I plugged in small happened electric guitar, and I wrote a bunch of songs that way. And then that became my process, and that's been my primary process but occasionally I still write a coup. Stick ATar, as you know, a couple years ago I got a Martin de eighteen. Oh, yeah. And that kind of turn the tides because I spent a lotta time with that guitar. Yeah, it was kind of it was kind of an emotional moment, because that was the point where I took my guild, that would was really my songwriting here for many years. And he said, I'm. Sending you. I want another guitar for the rest of my life out. So been wanting to Martin de eighteen for a while. So me got that send the guilt on it Sunday guilt packing. Interesting as understand it somebody bought it, and they're happy with cool. It's got its new songwriting partner, hopefully backing up. I got the Martin and then I started doing the songwriting process of one on one with acoustic guitar, and I wrote a number of songs, 'cause usually an instrument for me. There's something about it. Maybe it's the way the neck feels the way resonate something that you can find it's not. It has songs in. It's like their songs in you that it draws out and that Martin drew it like four or five songs. Right. A way and I think those will have songs that I wrote cuts cool entire it is. But it's gonna be need. A new guitar to write a song really expensive. So well, luckily will to that point, maybe you just go to a different piece of gear and focus on Dixie gear in that's happened. And I'm not so cool and everything is playing other people's bands. Yeah. You take your the writing. There you go. And then you're only writing parts and that's where gear is really important. Like if we have a new rift, broker song, I'll come out here and I'm the champ, and, like a fuzz pedal, or something like that, just like dick around with parts, and it's really interesting because you can use an amp, and if a paddle or guitar to, to come up with something, but then you move away from that, like he's a fuzz pedal, or something come up with riff, but then you say all right. I've got that riff, it came out of this. I was inspired to create that. And then you strip away the fuzz pedal, and you just put it into tar or you create something with an capable position. And then once you get the parts you take the cable off and it becomes something else. And that's really cool. Yeah. I mean, Cape bows. Speaking of like pieces. Of gear they can be great ways to pull out melody that you would never get, as that's that used to be a big songwriting, starting point for me is get the acoustic guitar when I was writing on acoustic and just start moving the cable around and play your cowboy court positions up in here in just draw something, I've you and that's I still do that. And do that with the electric guitar, too. So, yeah, no, I think I think gear there's a fine line that you must walk between letting the gear inspire you and using or just like nerdy out. Wanting stuff looking at stuff and earning out and. Can always remember to maybe stop and just like look at what you have and just open yourself up to be inspired and just plug it in play. I mean I try to play as much as I can and not always inspired. But sometimes you are to venture question. Yeah. That was great because I think it's cool that you kind of had this starting point based on just how you kind of perceived, you know, you wrote songs, this is what you do. You get an acoustic guitar and you sit in front of your track and do it. And then how it evolved in the basically when you got that DAT, how you came back to that. And then just realized I mean you probably realising along. But, you know, just just focusing on guitar that you maybe haven't played in a while or a piece of shit pedal. Man, I have that pedal that I haven't touched in in ages. Let's go plug it in and see what happens. And yeah. I think that's really cool. Yeah. That was a great answer to that question for me. Yeah. I had a four track back in the day. But for me, I just plugged in, and, and or use paddles and somehow still trying to do the electric. I, I never really wrote much on acoustic guitar. Did you have an acoustic guitar traded? You before I don't wanna go there. I've had them but not they haven't. And they didn't play that role with me. So I was just always writing on acoustic. I mean, not acoustic and electric either, not plugged in or plugged in somehow back in the day, I had the and all that other stuff, and, and that would inspire me to play a certain way and not necessarily inspire songs. But just it would based on the next shape. And then the with, you know what I mean, or the guitar pick it up, and you play a certain way. Oh, wow. That's different every or you. Or you pick up this other guitar, and you play a different way. And that's kind of what I did is. Picking up a guitar. I haven't played a longtime or that I normally don't play. And it's like oh man. This is kind of forcing me to play all your cliches go out the window. You have a different set. Here's my Fender. Exactly. But anything can do to shake that up. Yeah. That's capable is good for that electric. I mean you can get some cool sounding.

But that's what is another seminal delay that he used in the eighties when he switched to this digital delay. But he's insane. Because he'll use multiple delays. It's been singing. Yes. Yeah. But I've tried at times, I'm like slide. God it's can't figure. Interesting. We're talking about the course puddle, you know, how I say it's a hard pedal to as soon as you hear it. You're like no don't do that. What are you doing there? Don't do that. I didn't get just because it was probably overused in the eighties. What I think this is just my one man's opinion. Is you know, what that affect is? Now today down the road is people are going to say the same thing as that fucking modulated delay that you hear it sounds like indie movie soundtrack really lush every time. I hear that. I'm just like, oh, I love what dearly like grand delays. Just like, really simple. I agree at the same time. I don't like that modulated if the real like beautiful. So I don't know why that's that thing where it's been done to death can't watch any movie soundtrack or someone is in turn that fucking delay. And you're like, please. So I wonder it'd be interesting. I hope I'm still around to crew, you know, I'm gonna buy. Steve has that affect no? That's a good point. That's good. We might have to talk about that in one of our upcoming things. It's like these signature sounds that are known for a certain time period, and how they either held up or not or what we think in terms of held up or not always interesting to country music was like just a generation behind because like in the eighties when everybody graduated in rock and pop to the chorus pedal, they found the face Shifter. So all that all that country music was using facial after and then think they went to course pedal. Maybe the next year. I don't know. But it was weird. I think there's a there's a documentary. Search. We had to get to the bottom of this for whatever the foot, Chris totally I hear you. Well, that was great. I loved it. I had fun. All right. It wasn't excruciating liked it. Okay. Cool.

"Hello. Hello. Hello. This is critic Taketaro. That's Chris over there. Hello. And I'm Rick and today, we're gonna talk about favorite pedals. Oh, boy, yours mine. Whoever's pedals doesn't pedal. I know. Well, yeah. Some people hate pedals. We'll talk about that too. But prison I liked pedals. I liked pedals. What's your favorite pedal? My favorite pedal. It's kind of hard to say because I have different types of favorite pedals, and I should start this off by saying I go long periods of where I don't give shit about a pedal. I don't want anything between Muhtar and my amp. But realistically, if I'm doing allow playing I have to have like a couple of pedals and one of the pedals a tube screamer, which I guess you could say that makes it must make it where my favorite pedals, if someone gave me twenty tubes can be happy. But it's humor isn't that much fun. A facial after is much funner. Oh, yeah. Few of those so face Shifter's are one of my favorite. Pedals should say. And I it's kind of on it because I never used them for anything like live or recordings pretty funny. But I like them. I don't know. It's interesting. It is interesting. Isn't it fast? Fascinating. I think so the fact that you dig the pedals and monkeying around with them, but don't really find a use for them within your material or. Lalla time around the how and recordings have used them in recordings. Okay. I like the organ kind of. Yeah. Effect that they give and I have a few of them. I think if I were going to become a pedal collector, I think that might be my angle, I might say I'm gonna collect facial. But I'm not appellate collector, and I don't Shifter's, but I've managed to amass a few of them got it and one of them being the holy grail issue. Look at that. Rick is looking at my holy grail face shift right now, which is of that thing. It's the what is it the maestro? PS one. A it's so cool. That's the LX license. Phaser that good friend of mine guy for me as looks like it should be on the set of mister Rogers, doesn't it like? Should be everywhere. It's so fricking off of the bridge of enterprise. No. That is a cool phaser? And it sounds amazing. And I love the way it looks. It's like it's as big as four Pennells combined. But it's awesome. I think it is my panel of pedals that I have noted what's your favorite pedal of the ones. I have. I'd have to say. You know, what I'm partial to this old boss d digital delay eighty to? Yeah. Bef- because when I was looking for delay. I wanted something that would give me more milliseconds than just a, you know, your standard analogue would back them and stuff, and that digital delay did that and at the time it was digital quote. I'm using quotes. But it's still sounded kind of warm and. Yeah. Kinda dug it those are collectible, and I still have that damn thing. And I dig that thing. But. And I'm a sucker for a wa I just am. You know, I never overuse them. But for the longest time that was like a mainstay. I always had a why if I did have a board like you. I go through phases where it's like. Yeah. I just wanna plug in. It's I don't wanna do any of this crap. But then there's other times depending on what I'm doing where I have whatever size board, and for let's talk about the wall for a moment. Because that's another fact that I really like, yeah. And I've never I never had one for years and years and years probably maybe five or six years ago. I said I need to get wa and so I got one just a Dunlop cry baby from the eighties. I think I played on it around the house, and this is kind of fun. And then I kinda like down wa rabbit hole. He ended up with Thomas organ late seventies. Thomas Oregon with a stack of dimes doctor which is like nerd speak for one of the desirable. Inductors that kinda give the wa it's voice fucking love that it's never been alive. I don't really use it. But I dig it out a lot, and I have a lot of fun with it. And I like the wall for doing like the cocktail just getting kinda like nasal e sounds and different textures vocally stones and not so much for the chunk chunk of poor. Yeah.

"Hello. This is Chris Taketaro. That's Chris over there. Hello. I'm Rick today. Not unlike other days, we're going to talk about pet peeves. Oh, yeah. I hear a countdown. That this whole this whole series isn't just a string of pet peeves. Yeah. Let's it's an excuse for us to air our pet peeves king rant about our pet. Peeves, regardless of who really wants to know or not so to get the ball rolling. I know Chris has a long list of pet peeves that he stored away in that little noggin. What do you what do you got? Well, I just like start with a disclaimer that sending these pet peeves kind of moral reflection of our shortcomings than the things that were ranting. To get inside of these pet peeves and say, why does this? Let's. On vail. Some some fascinating things might not just old guys yelling at clouds, but I'm going to give it a whirl. You are to get off by saying clip onto Nur's. Oh, yes. I don't mind clip on tuners. Okay. There is a mazing. If you think about them, though, because this technology compare the cheapest clip on tuner that you can buy to the old desktop tuners right of your and they're more accurate. They're more lightweight bureau parts, but I don't like them. And let's figure out why I don't like let's unpack this Chris unpack it and see what it's underneath the dark underbelly of this pet peeve. I think what it is partially is that the start to me is holds the essence of guitar the classic telly heads stock. The classic Stratocaster the classic Gibson. Had stocked things of beauty for someone s and you stick this cheap. Casio like junk on top of it. And it's just kind of distracting more than anything. I'm not going to argue for MoMA. That they are helpful that they are isn't convenient. But. Every all have our pet peeves. I okay, I accept that. When I got my mandolin, and I was learning the mandolin it came with a free clip on tuner while I was learning the tuning of that instrument. I clicked that on there. You know, it was kind of a quick visual aid, great once I went, and how to tune the instrument took it off God it, and I use the old ears or a phone or any other kind of two hundred out of there. So I know why people use them super convenient easy access. You can see them instantly. I don't like them. I don't sorry. I share your view on the on the clip ons for for what reasons you cited. So I mean, you're preaching to the choir here, man. Yeah. It's kind of funky. And again like you say maybe like around the house. It's kind of neat to have training wheels and stuff like that. But when you're at a live show, it is kind of weird to see like, but I see them all over the place. Now, they got that clip on tuner on the head stock on that all these players. Referred to as the fanny pack of. Assessories and some people like took issue with I'm fine with that issue. But I'm like, yeah. It's just kind of a novelty item. I like again, go on YouTube live concerts of people use them. I know more power to you continue to use them and continue to Seve move it inside. And I see them on a classic. It's almost like you have like a pre-war Martin. And you know, and you drill any like one of those pre-empts in inside that Qatar. So you have Priore Martin with a battery rights. I don't know. I think people rely in general on tuners far more than they really need to 'cause everybody likes to have instant visualization on onstage. Your people are watching you wanna quick about it in the stuff. But if you never interact with your instrument as far as brave in tune, I think, I don't know. I think you'll you'll have a better era. If if you're able to do that, and you make yourself do that more often and other thing to point out is even the most accurate tuner if you rely on that for completely tune your Qatar Qatar might not be as in tune as you think it is. Because for me my guitar. I mean, sometimes I have to flatten the G string to get it to sound into. And I don't care what my two hundred says it's my ears. So that might be part of it again, you know, you know, us. Disclaimer. Disclaimer back to

"I don't like about Ebola of that amplifier because I just think I went again, there's some good sounding JC. I liked every little Zanier on tight. Yeah. Which I don't it's just it. Just sounds more mentally more. It doesn't sound as warm, and which again is is they're catering to a certain John music that wants to buy these amps, which is totally cool. But that's great that you mentioned amps because Fender did in on remind me, there's one everything I want to say about Fender. But they went through that, you know, we are whole classic line. And then in the eighties. They started to switch it up a bit. We have this new Harvard type thing, and then they got that. Paul Rivera guy in there took the designs and just like added a bunch of shit him. Those are collectible ams people like them on. They sound good kind of in spite of how much shit is inside those amps. Yeah. So he was he must've known shit because he was able to put a bunch of crap in there and still make them sound good. Like, he did the super champ, which is really kind of collectible. And I think he did a little bit for each model in the line and took up. Remember, the red knob fans? They were too, but they had those little tiny red. Now, the thing I was going to say about Fender in the eighties. I distinctly remember living in land Lansing, Michigan. It must've been eighty six or eighty seven somewhere around there and going into the guitar shop called martial music in Lansing, and they had the new Fender line the Fender strat Intel. He's and and looking and they were all made in Japan, and I was talking to dude. And I'm like, yeah. And at that time, this shop owner wasn't really sure that there was ever going to be. I mean, they didn't have a shop yet. They have US manufacturing set up yet. So he was like that might be it for USA fenders. It turns out it wasn't all all the while they were working to get manufacturing setup. But I thought I thought I trusted this guy. And I'm like, wow, that's it and I had USA Stratocaster. So I'm like, yeah. This is going to be so much money to. You know, it's just a short time. And if you wanted to new Stratocaster telecaster Japan. Yeah. And they were made really well too. And that's when I mean, Japan is always done really well with making the tars, especially in that era. But I think they were at that time they were really trying to you know, we want to hold this vendor account. So they they got the details on the reissues. They got the details better than the US reissues the fifty telecaster for instance, they did a better as far as attention to detail on the first USA versions. Yeah. There they made some great guitars and continue to do. So. But. Yeah. I. The eighties. It was an interesting time for guitar. And also, let's remember that the eighties was the dawn of new wave and all this other stuff and people were saying, I remember literally people were saying the guitars done music. Yeah. He was very vocal person who was saying that guitar is on the way out is going to be of synthesizers and totally I know he was wrong. Good guy. I don't think I really bought into that either at the time because I I was a Qatari player I played guitar, and I saw all this new wave stuff with all the centers since synthesizers and stuff, but I I never really bought into that. Like, oh, the guitar either totally fall away from using and sure enough the big stuff came along. And then indie stuff really surfaced, and then grunge surfaced which draw growing cracks, but but grudge love or hate it again was guitar oriented rock that brought back amplifiers guitars and all that other stuff. And so yeah, that was though or well, yeah..

I can't think of a company that probably could think of a company that didn't. But I mean, all the big ones. Fender played around with the super strat Gibson, strap you mentioned Hamer. Yup. We mentioned gills or Bel shar Jackson. So yeah, I think you're right. The other point has stock shape was the Randy Rhoads like, you know, funny looking v style was that was big for a while.

"About that and the strap a soda where there's a lot of shitty keyboard and guitar sounds. We're like very direct sounding yet into the board. And and like you're saying there were there were a lot of great tar sands. But there are a lot of shooting. Guitar sounds like you say those were a lot of the tar sands that were prominent because their being played on the radio, and even like guitar players that we love before went through this odyssey of even Alex life isn't went through this whole thing of using Hewson Kenner, he used he used outboard racks to ships. Tat Travers all these dudes like that we're using like just solid, you know, Marshall, stack with frigging melody maker. They went through this odyssey of play. And as. We all do. But you know, when you when you listen back to that stuff. Again, I my favorite ATar tones from all his guitars usually is their first Qatar tone. They had you know, what I mean like Eddie van Halen that I that sounds so fricking cool man because it's this untamed breathing. Cool. Tar sound rather than this kind of. Formulaic sound that he ended up with? But anyway, yeah, I think you're right. There were a lot of great guitar sounds from the eighties. But also there were just a lot of silly rack mounted ding-dong things going on. I'm trying to think of anything else culturally on the gear front that was like in vogue that just the playing like we talked about the like you're saying that the, you know, the bar for being a great guitar player quotes. I'm using quotes is was the ability to tap or play really fast or do rake picking or all of these techniques that for you. And I are just you know, parlor tricks. Really, it's like the guitarist you and I love or guitar players that play tasty rhythm. And then tasty leads, you know, which again, I love guitar. What is the other thing? If you take the shredding, and you remember another big phenomenon was power ballad. When you have the power ballad in the song almost basically stopped. So that they can shoehorn their soul that they worked out with all this tabby. Of course, a classic example that fucking love Eddie van Halen kind of a revolutionary Qatar player. But I mean, he got two point where when I'm listening some of those records. It's like that whole thing is like, okay. This is vehicle for the that jump is a classic example. You've got this pop song this infectious pops on and it's time for the soul. Let's stop the fucking song stick solo in. And then I'll use some of this horrible keyboards brings back in. It's like it doesn't it's not like at one with the. So it's like playing. I really like I like playing around vocal lines solos that just get get you there. And there was a lot of a lot of great stuff then too. But yeah that whole like I've had a solo for a while. Now, I need to stick it in a song somewhere. It's like, you know, you should get a solo from a song and not the way I agree. And I think a lot of the solos from that time period eighties. We're like that. It was just a chance to show you how he could tap or how. Yeah. And it didn't necessarily fit the song per se. But it was just like, hey, look at me. I've got spandex and compete does and blow dried hair I can shred on. My speed speed was the guitar circle. Speed was a controversial thing that people. Remember listening to swear to God in some some magazine listening to LT meal like bitch about players in speed. Like, it's all they can do is speed. I mean, Mr Fassa. Talking about pretty ironic. I found that rather ironic. I'm like, really so. Yeah, it was everybody was kind of up in arms about the the speed race. There's a lot of people that were striving to be fast, and she just talking about about. I mean, Frank Zappa was another one that was kind of like I mean, which is an ironic again because he worked with Steve violent..

"But you know, it's just it's a good record. And he he kind of kept the les Paul going. I agree. And that's cool. That you cited that. Because I think you're absolutely right. He was playing he's a les Paul guy through and through. I think occasionally he played other funky guitars. Like, he had a BC rich Mockingbird, which is cool too. I dig those. But yeah, I mean, he he's a less Paul guy. If I think slash it's a less pollen his hands. And it's that sound I dug that record when it first came out. Just I don't know. Why described me, I don't know mart, my friend, Mark. And I went and saw them open for iron maiden of Eric great show. But you're right. I mean, I, you know, the Ethel Merman vocals, I think. Yeah. Is funky. But in terms of I don't really care for much of the stuff. They did after that. But that I I think is like you say a good rock album. You know? I mean, a lot of people mention it as a seminal rock album. I think it is up there and in terms of guitar saving kind of a classic guitar tone and model. Yeah slash asked to be credited with that. And again, I would say to the indie. Genre. I think helped usher in a love for more vintage instruments to like like all those guys were buying cheap fenders and using Fender amps and all this other stuff, and then these cheaper models became popular kinda like we're talking about with Leslie west playing junior back in the day. Nobody wanna those guitars, he you know, he he was onto it doing guitar. I'm not a student, but he was onto him and he dug them, and then sure enough as time went on people like, yeah. These or Martha hoople those guys were smart, they love these again them onto it. So, but so I think what's cool about these different cycles of music is is how they a lot of these people kind of harken back to these old instruments in these old things that they kind of go these are really cool and they're cheap right at the time. Some of it's a combination of urine for that classic stuff. And also not having a lot of money to spend on gear, you know. And so they wind up with a Mustang or a Bronco or something like that playing through a cool old Fender who knows what you know. Right now. It sounds like you mentioned the independent eighties independent music because personally my journey. I came out of the seventies kind of into classic rock. And like, I mentioned the first wave of European heavy metal and at some point I kind of find that indie independent music, and I was way into that bands. Like who Skar do the replacements the meet the minute, man? I started going down that. And I kind of turned my back on my whole classic upbringing, which was kind of a shame. I gotta back eventually. But yeah, I think that's that was a really interesting point because all those people were into the they were like punk influenced and pop influenced and they they sought out those classic instruments and made them and brought them back into the forefront for anybody that was into that music. So it's great. And you mentioned like there. BC rich, which I kind of think of more as more as a seventies kind of like Qatar but in the eighties. I'm trying to think of any guitars that came out during that period that were like be one hundred become classic. I think for some people even though you, and I might not get this. I think that what was it Kramer who started in the seventies as aluminum neck guitar, and they went to after the van Halen thing they went to super strat style guitar skip..

"Welcome. This is Chris and Rick Taketaro. That's Chris over there. Taking a big drink of his coffee, and I'm Rick and we had a couple listeners. Give us a great idea which was to talk about pointing stars or guitar from eighties or guitar in the eighties. And we really appreciate that. Keep those ideas coming in. We love it because it helps us some perpetuate topics to rant about in our little podcast, but we both Chris. And I love to talk about that. Because it it's it's an interesting time period for guitar pointing stars became in favor. Everybody wanted to Jackson Rashard Valles Suplicy ranch or the super strat. And consequently, like classic cars, late Gibson les. Pauls and straps were kind of out of favour right because everybody is focused on these pointing you tars with Floyd rose everything had a Floyd rose on it at that time too. Because keilor. Yeah, rosa. I I don't know. I don't know. Which one was I, you know, I think. I I don't know. It'd be honest. I wanna say good thing to look so. Yeah. Four peaks little nugget. But yeah. And so I'm always interested because I remember back then distinctly going to music stores and seeing les Paul's and straps for really fair prices because they just weren't moving as as these Jackson's and Charles and all these other crazy Qatar were moving off the shelves because everybody wanted a appointing ATar and bright colored guitar. And of course, they had to have the dive bomb Floyd rose to right because even Halen eighty I think it was probably even hill, and who started this respect craze because you know, exactly his is his chisel and shit out and made that you know, his historic be Qatar. And I'm pretty sure he probably, you know, kind of spearheaded the old super strap movement he had a Stratocaster, but ram humbug and the bridge it's and did those other things. So it's interesting if you look at the climate, and I think is very different climate between the early eighties and the late eighties. So it's kinda the middle era. I think where that really became. Prominent that pointy heads stocks every guitar manufacturer had to have a point ahead. So I think that probably did it because he been Halen was late. Eighties are not late late seventies early eighties. Yeah. I him for that whole. Yeah. Like, you said, I mean, I think his that strat. He created was the template for what was to come in terms of guitars in the eighties. I think because his style and play right because then everybody was tapping and everybody was using leflore the Wales. And stuff. And so he really is to blame for that whole. Thanks Edwards said on chatter in guitar history. If you look I mean during the early eighties. I was way into classic metal guitar like which I always see I always call like pop metal because it's metal. But it's very hooky and very poppy kind of stuff specifically iron maiden pre fall. I wave British audit stuff, and those bands were all classic Akhtar's. Right. Yeah. You know, the the Gibson's and the fenders, and I are made. And he he put on that. Dude. Put Dave Murray. He put out a home Bucker in his bridge to he did probably Abby probably so. Yeah, we're coming out of that..

The cool little green pedal that everybody loves everybody has everybody has had sold. And then repurchased probably tell me a little bit. Chris about your love for the tube. Screamer? I love the tube screamer. It's better on my board since nineteen ninety six or so and the thing about it is it's been on my board. Not only that. But it's been turned on the entire Tim. I'm one of those always onto screamer people. So it just plugged in my board in step on it. And it stays on for the whole show. So yeah, it's been on my board and on since nineteen Ninety-six. So it's the foundation of your sound foundation found I'm a fan of the pedal. I like everything about it. I like the green color I like the different versions of them. Which one do you have by the way, I have two of them. I have ninety. S T S nine re issue, and I have an eighty S T S ten like both. I mean, the nine is not my main board and the teen this ten I use around the house, and I also have on a small mini board that I take to rehearsals and whatnot your house pedal. Yeah. My house peddle my house coat, and what do you think? What's your? What are your feelings about the show eight I've never owned one? I liked them. I had through them that reassure ahead. Right. Yeah. I like that. Like, I said, I like all cool. I don't play favorites. Those three basically, I think those are the only ones I've had experience with. I know the some. In some later versions and some custom versions and all right. Yeah. I've got a nine. To actually on my board between nine to nine baby. Two nine. Yeah. Give me that ate away. I got rid of it. Because it didn't jazz me. It was like an I know what you're saying that they all have they all have their own character their own coolness. But that one for some reason didn't speak to me. Well, that's that's the key. I mean, he's got to speak to you get rid of doesn't get one does. But the nines I really dig them. It's got a cool mid range e sound that I like, and I like the overdrive it they get and I have to because I have a strap and explorer and one single coil pickup in one is. And so I so when I'm playing, you know distorted or over driven stuff I want an even sound right. I don't wanna I don't wanna put the Humber on. And then it's way louder than the other guitar. I got you know, that's good. A lot of people will do that they'll use two of them. And some of them will one into the other one to get like the turbo who tube screamer sound. I haven't played the eight oh eight much. But I like what I found for me is nearly any tube screamer pedal that I've had or played through. I can make pretty much anyone sound like the other one just with a little tweaking in what I mean, my ten if I just set them up the same might ES ten seems a little bit thinner and a little bit brighter, but I can tweak it to get it to just like my nine. They're great. And it's funny to back up to what you were first saying as I know it was just kind of introductory talking. But that everybody loves them. It's not quite true. Because a lot of people have a problem. With the T S pedals the tube screamer pedals because of that what they do to your mid range. Oh, you know what? I mean. They actually put mid range there by you know, there's a high-powered a little bit or not transparent, right? Other not transparent at all. And there's like high pass and low pass that kind of makes it a perceived men boost. But that's precisely why like that pedal. Yeah. I think. Yeah. I guess it's not adopted by everybody. But I think historically it is a pedal that lots of your class. Yeah. And so, but yeah. To your point exactly that I I've heard similar things where it's like. Wow. Now, it's not transparent enough, or it's you know, which is fine. If that's but I'm like, you I like mid range and bring it on because it's like that's the cool guitar center. I can totally see somebody if somebody plugs into like a silver face black-faced air. Fender amp with their determine, they got the nice big clean. Fender sound you step on that things change. So for me being always on the basis of my sound. So I don't use never used dry, but I don't have the drive on. It's kind of one of those people that you keep the drive all the way down and turned off the drive. Yeah. Maybe with my telecaster put just a little bit in their hair. But and then I just open the level up until fills out. And you know, when my amp is cooking a little bit to begin with. And it just for me. It's almost like a a process or just put all my guitars doesn't matter which one it is into that mid range zone where I want the time. And I don't have a person also who I don't have a clean tone in a dirty town. I just have a tone. I mean, it's the tube screamer. And if I want to get more dirt, I lean into it. And you know, and I might use my volume pedal on the guitar a little bit. But usually, it's just you know, my. Right hand determines what's clean? What's turkey? It's always a might use fuzz or something like that. And that's totally different story. But basically the tone I go for whether it's playing like roots country ish kind of stuff or just straight ahead rock and roll stuff. It's the tube screamer is the tone is the base tone. That's cool ways. I like to use. It is my main live amp is a tech MiG fifty and those buckets are loud stupor. They sound great when you crank them. But there's no club in Seattle where I can crank it and use it without a paddle. Right. So the tube screamer I found gives me that sound almost like that cranked amp. It does that very well. I mean, I don't know who ever made that pedal. Got that. Right. Let you're working, you know, so we're just pushing a little bit and use that to go the rest of the way. It sounds like an an an just crying. It's like an attenuate or actually. Yeah. Yeah. That's kind of how I use it. But it's just just hasn't affected. It sounds like an old crank amped cool. And I go for that sound with no matter what happened playing hand. And it's pretty you can get really pretty if you play with a light, touch and maybe back your volume off a little bit. But just you know, that's all my like clean tone is the tube screamer. So it sounds great. So thanks. I like it. It's it's like my favorite pedal. I mean, it's kind of like appel you don't really get that excited about because it doesn't do anything other than that. But like I said I like the tones that gets with when it's over driven. That's I do use the gain and all that stuff. And I think it sounds cool. It sounds mid range -i and warm. It has a warm sound to me a gain pedal compress like a rat. Or at does a little bit more compression compresses a little bit. But what I find him to ask you, if you find the same thing because you just mentioned a number of stars that you use what I like about it is the character of guitar. Comes through even with that, you know, more perceived in range Atelli still Tom sounds like ital- otaly. And you know, it's not it's not like this. Artificial layer attitude. So I mean, the my last Powell do the classic less Paul humbug or sound through it. Yeah. And telly would do the classic Kelly bridge sound through it. So it's all still there. So I think that does I think it speaks to your point of where it what you just said that I don't remember that it maintains it's kind of like, what did you call it like a an? An an enhancer. What the fuck Joe and attenuated ten, but after that, you said something that was like a sonic characteristic. I don't know never mind. I you're right because when I play my strap through that setup, and I'm have gained it. Still sounds like a squishy strat, which is super cool. And then when I play Humber those characteristics maintain with the pedal, which I totally did. Yeah. And I I
"chris and." Discussed on Chris and Rick Talk Guitars
"Welcome. This is another episode of Chris and Rick talk a tars. That's chris. I am Chris. I'm Rick and today, we're gonna talk about guitars in movies. And there's lots to talk about not only Aera correct or incorrect nece, but all kinds of fun things to talk about Chris start us off. We can talk about the buddy Holly story. Okay. That's that's because that came out in nineteen seventy I believe is it in my notes nights your notes, nineteen seventy eight. Okay. Yeah. In by that time, I had been already been playing tour for while. Always starting become aware of cars and movies. And that was the worst one that was the first one that rubbed me wrong. Because immediately I knew even my unsophisticated newly playing guitar self knew that hang that's not a fifty Stratocaster is fifty strat era movie. Yeah. I agree. I I'm sure like the studio people don't give it crap about like your average person. And they don't care about us either. But for us who do play guitar, I think even some people who are familiar with guitars. They see him like that. And it's not right about that Qatar. You know, but at least you and I do because we're and we're Keith's about that stuff. But it is annoying to me because we talked about this before not just Qatar props or stereo gear. Right. Like. Wigs and all this other crap. Right but back to tar so yes, we'll talk more about the guitar issues. Didn't tell him that to played three Electric's that I noticed him playing when I was looking for film. Still one of them was the Stratocaster which will discuss the other one was the white telecaster that you just mentioned and also a red Bronco each one of these instruments were from not the fifties era when buddy Holly would have been alive. So if you look at the Stratocaster that he was playing his pretty interesting because I've found online auction. I don't know how recent was that guitar sold and it's over six thousand dollars, which seems to me to be a pretty decent deal. Guitar is a composite the on the body was from seventy sunburst CBS era Stratocaster in the neck was a sixty six it was early CBS. So that was a composite back in seventy eight that somebody threw together, that's all the info have on that. But the Bronco. Oh must have been. Maybe that represented his early stages of his career, which you know, the Prego didn't exist. The late early part of his career what? Yeah, I was alive when he was like one into another world when Zhang grapes went into maybe ghost bought a car and was like some time work thing. So that was the other end the telecaster to white telecaster. It was either late sixties early seventies. And again, it's like Inuit, and I understand it's not a documentary and all this other stuff, but it's a period piece. Right and forgives like us, man. I wanna see it's not hard to get a reissue or guitar that looks really close to the wheel in nineteen seventy eight well giving the option would have been to fifties right back, then it was just use guitar. Right. A bar and. They wouldn't have cared as in tune to that sort of geeky kinda shit back then so get somewhat of a pass. And I love the movie as a kid I'd into into damn it. But so no, I'm saying now today, you have less of a reason for less exam viewer excuses. Yes. Because there are reissues and there are ways to get Qatar that looks period, correct. Without having to borrow some real vintage guitar from somebody. But even that even then studios have the money to the insurance to go. Hey fender. We would love a Vince storeroom and get one. Yeah. Go. Back to the vault and get a buddy, Holly, strat and hurry Garib UC's hard to work with and almost exactly well, you know, let's talk about another movie crossroads crossroads, which is set to classic. Let's talk about crosswords. I can get to the other one. Yeah. Go ahead. So you start us off. I well, there's I'm throwing up a little bit my mouth just thinking that. Well, there's a there's a lot of like from guitarist standpoint. There's a lot of interesting trivia about that movie like rough Maggio had to killer, guitar coaches. I mean, he had Arslan raw it's too bad and doom any good because that doesn't even look like even after all that coaching. It still doesn't look like he knows what which end to destroy on the God damn, you know, he was just a kid. I know, but he's got right cooter playing on a slight parts, and he's got Arlen Roth how the other shit, and what's interesting about that movie in the next movie that I wanna talk about which is back. The is this movie was nineteen eighty five or was as I think this one was eighty five right across roads, eighty six eighty six so and the big scene where he's battling the devil. Steve Vai, which actual culturally where we were with the guitar time. Because it's like, the apex. This is what you have to beat the best guitar in the world is like that. Both. Shit like kind of noodling good point fret tapping. That's where guitar is like this movie was to be about classically blues play. Yeah. And there's two white dude's dueling it out on the. You gotta beat this guy doing tapping the fret board you're going to be disguised as really not playing the blues. You've got to be a better blues player than this guy's not playing the blues. Exactly or you're going to hell. Yeah. Or are going to hell. So the rest of us sitting here watching the we're already there were already there. But yeah, the stakes are high ES, and you were mentioning that. I think I remember reading that about the coaching. But every time I watch Ralph macho that guitar on. It's like the guitar is. It's like he's getting shocked every time. He touches the damn thing. He it's like, he doesn't even know. Like like, this is the these are the low notes this is where he played low notes on the neck. This is where he play high notes on the net. It doesn't look like he's aware of that. And again, that's another thing that irks me about deters or musical instruments in movies is nine again. You know, sure this actor has not played an instrument in his or her life, but for God's sake don't make it look like, you're just. Like, you're you're clicking clicking on the damn thing. Without any way. I'm sorry ranting. But now this. I guess you mustn't recently have you seen this? I haven't seen it since. I think I see clips of it now. And then right because people post it online just little clips of it. But every time I see Ralph much with that telly around his neck. I wanted to take it off of him. And. Just give them a couple of knocks on the head with it. Because it's just silly. And Steve Vai. It's just he's playing that silly. What is it a red Kramer silly thing? Simple as he's supposed to be the double. I think the devil would have better taste, totally in a devil. Would have fuck. Bad ass lake totally billing like slide and just like killing dork like in might outta be rich actually the debt probably pointy BC rich at that. What what was the point? He would be the classic devil. Boom. She a killer s g right think he would've had me bar to the devil or not this way. This is my point. I think you're right. I think the devil needs any help just a straight up like a sixty one sixty one sixty two somewhere. Jerry, very red cherry red while, of course, fiery red. Yeah. Okay. So anyway, I guess my take on the whole guitar thing is just the agreed nature of Ralph not even knowing how to that. He looks like he knows how to play guitar. He's supposed to be coming up against the devil playing the damn thing. I don't I don't have a clear enough memory because go though, so I thought I thought he did are writing bay the movie was shit. I mean. Yeah. Just fate as it was. It was horrible that whole thing. Like, you know, the white person's role in you know, creating the blues. Yeah. Well, you'll see in the future. Again, accurate lose movie. Some white dudes like co-opting the artform. All right moving away. Ross my favorite and remember this scene a time. My favorite part was when he was like a bummed out because women left his girlfriend left him. And he was sitting there. And he's he's got the his black mentor is they're towing. He's all bummed out and shit. And in the black mentor says something in fact of this is what the blues is about us that and he just looks at his guitar, and it's this really powerful moment. Like, yeah. Ralph has the blue where I think that's where he took it, and he got the courage to battle the Daiga. And then and then he karate chop it in half to only, but it actually it wasn't the blues that saved him from being beaten by Steve Vai was down to it was his classical jobs because he starts, you know, he was lose news losing big. He had he had to get some Bach. To the future to the fumes when he had to do to overcome their again that important message another messages, you know, the blues are like classical will train blues England people like that. Yeah. That's where the, you know, the blues, I guess those were fighting the devil. Right. So from they're gonna jump ahead or back. However, you wanna look at back eight this was eighty five s eighty guy. This is another one that was interesting and this one year character, Mike, or whatever the character in the movie. Thanks is. He was actually Michael J FOX was actually Qatar player. So right for him to. Yeah. But the interesting thing about that again, there's the scene where he's on stage at some sock. Hop dance comb coming whatever the fuck, it was this was a moment where we realize washing the movie that it was actually some white kid that invented rock. Right. Well, of course, it was because. It was Marvin berry Berry's cousin who witnessed this act. Where is ripped it up on the side. So he was crazy Chuck Berry and you're looking for. Yeah. Here it is. And another interesting thing the last movie is we see again in one thousand nine hundred five where the apex guitar playing was him doing. Crappy. Yeah. It was very interesting. Right. And and to our point again talking about this period piece. Now, this guitar was closer to period than other guitars, but it still wasn't spot on and again, it's because some director wanted a fricken red guitar and the only guitar they had access to guess was I guess from what I've read is this Qatar that they used in the in. But you know, that's anyway, but it was Gibson's ES three forty. The F B. Yeah. Nice. Tar. Yeah. It was it was a super cool Qatar. And I guess, you know, to give him some credit they were closer to the Mark than some of these other people we talked about movies, but it's Michael J, FOX was inventing rock and roll. And since Chuck very one on a three thirty five which I think he may have played three forty five. Maybe this is a prototype that is playing well he got his hands on play. Definitely their head was kind of in the game. They were there kind of close. So, you know, it wasn't as bad as like, you know, like unhappy days like way digital watch or something. But happy days the other thing about that movie, which you know, I know millions of people love that movie, and it's kind of charming, and it's nice, and whatever that movie sucks to me. I mean, I'll say art is very subjective is personal. We all what we can't insult sock. Say speak to you. It doesn't speak to me, it sucks to me. And one of the reasons why that movie is one giant misguided product placement. If you think jokes base. On shit people watch that movie with a fuck is Pepsi free again tab that was the that as I recall that was kind of either in the throes of or in the beginning stages of product placement in movies and kind of movies were basically vehicle to say it to sell crap. I mean, they are anyway, but that was really when it started to kick in and like you had product placement and sponsorship and all yeah. Like, you're saying in alluding to and I agree. I think that sucks. But I dug the movie Doug, go farming. Because it's a nice giant through you know, like through time. What do you call in past right? Time travel for exactly I'm going to add something here. That's totally off script. Okay. This is spinal tap guitars feature. Prominently miss in a good way. Because I think Christopher guest is a guitarist and as is David Saint heavens. I forget his cO. Oh, are they all are? And he had that I think that was his collection guitars or some of them were in that. Really? Yeah. And so he's he's actually showing you like a burst and some cool guitars, and I love it because that's a movie where you had music playing guitars. They love they are musicians it, but you know, it was a silly movie, which I love I love that movie. But that would hit the Mark right because they didn't have to worry about period pieces or anything they just had to worry about their weight. And and spend crap got nearly every element of that. They nailed because there was so many people that said I was in a real man shit in that happened to me. So yes, I have and puppet show. Yes. That's. There. You know, you can do it. Right. And I mean, we've definitely got way more sophisticated. I think they have people like that do that stuff even working when I was working at a guitar shop. We had movie people come in. That's cool like asking questions or borrowing for just trying to get you know, trying to get information that will help their movie, look more. And you're right. I mean back then it I mean still though there were people. In charge of consistency. You know, shot consistency and period consistency annuity and continuity. Yeah. But I think you're right. I think as time went on it became more of a thing where you know. Let's you know, this this thing supposedly took place in the fifties. Let's get some stuff that actually looks like along in that time period. Like, we talk about madman madman nailed it down to the ice cube trays and crap. I just appreciate that. I appreciate the art that the craftsmanship that goes into like a production like that. And somebody saying look this is a period piece if we're gonna suspend reality or disbelief, let's do this. You know, let's make the stuff. Period. Correct. And let's, you know, so you're in this time, and you're really, you know, anyway, if anything Chris what can we take away from this diatribe about? Guitars and movies. Wait, wait. I know we didn't talk about a really important one. And it's a recent one sorry. I was I was jumping the gun. It's the Tarantino movie where they had the rare. So this is an example, I guess of maybe well, it's a cautionary tale for Qatar factory alone guitars to idiots. Very much retail Martin loaned Tarantino. This rare vintage eight from the eighteen hundreds acoustic guitar so use in their his hateful eight movie, and they had a prop that was a double of this Qatar. But somehow got switched and in a scene, Kurt Russell smashes this rare Martin guitar, and so, and you know, it's worth who knows how much maize priceless who knows the hundred and fifty years old one hundred fifty years old. So may you know, now, it's it is good that we have reissues or something or, but I guess somebody built a replica this Qatar to for them to move. I don't know why it was even onset. They could borrow that made the replica. Nobody would know the difference. But looking now, I was just thinking imagine smashing tars. And maybe we could have a aside by what we talk about smashing ITAR. Yeah. Because I have some thoughts totally. What does your jars save it for another episode of? But we'll give us a little taste a little taste is if you're gonna smash guitar smash a fifties Burs smash a really valuable instrument. I because then it means some right? Yeah. Gimme gimme the squire. I'm gonna swap it out while the audience isn't looking Emma smash I saw Richie Blackmore do that. And he smashed achieve guitar, and that's that's just kind of cheesy. I love I love guitars, especially historic precious guitars. Great. But if you didn't make a statement like this is how much Ernst I got I'm gonna actually. Actually, do something in this heat of the moment the most expensive when you can and feel it after you're done like os. Yeah. I think you're right. It's going to be credible. Man. You got to. Yeah. Don't go out and buy Matteo strat or better yet. Let just say all the people who smashed guitars that meant it of already done it and anyone. Point four. It's just kind of oppose. Yeah. It's like Jesus saving. Right. You don't need to do. You know, he saved you already. So the work is done. Right. And now all you have to all these cars have been smashed in the name of angst and rock and roll. You don't do it anymore, man. Just look at video towns and smashing guitars. You're good to go. Well, there you go. We touched we touched a man dead. I love it. That's a taste though. But that's a great idea. I like that idea. Yeah. Well, too bad. Well, you've done it. Again, you wasted a bunch of time listening to Chris, and I ran about guitars, we're going to have social media presence out there. So you got to find us. We'll tell you where to go to get us. But like our page. Subscribe to our podcast do all that cool stuff because we're going to keep doing this. Whether you like it or not until next time. Bye.
