Six guys playing it kind of muddies it up though. The old power trio

Always liked punk and Lust for Life amuses me because it is now the theme song for Carnival Cruise commercials. What's with that?
Yeah , I'm sure Iggy is having a good laugh about that!

I was at the 1985(?) Chicago NAMM (National Assoc Music Mfgs) show with some friends in the business. Emmett Chapman himself was demoing the Stick at his little booth. Got to talk to him, and he explained a lot about the instrument and how it is played, and he played it amazingly, jaw-dropping-ly well just for us. As we stood there in awe, practically invading his personal space. Talked with Tom Coster and tried to blurt out some appreciative words when I bumped into Dr Moog.

The DX7 was just out and I saw it at the show for the first time. Bought one within the month. Quite an achievement for an amateur musician, LBYM guy. Still have it. Hardly ever play it, hard to find the time now that I'm retired.

So many great versions of 'Pork Pie Hat', Joni, Jeff Beck, the list goes on...

I've got two chapman sticks. Since emmett lives pretty close by to me
i just stop by his house/workshop when i need a new set of strings.
He's a really cool guy and still going strong at 70+. I hope I'm as vital as he
is when i'm seventy.

My goal once i FIRE ( i hope some time next year ) is to get half as good
as greg howard is on the stick.. That should keep me busy for a while

Wow, that is pretty cool that you know him. He did seem like a very nice guy at the show. He made quite an impression on me, I still remember seeing him play that thing - very vividly.

Now, if I could just remember where I left my car keys......

Is there a specific CD/DVD you would recc? This one looks pretty interesting:

Soundboard TV with Emmett Chapman
DVD 1983 TV broadcast $15

I like the idea of being able to see him play while I listen, the Stick is a very visual thing with both hands moving up/down the frets - also gives me an excuse to get a little LCD TV to put in my listening room - the player is already DVD capable, just no video in that room.

My wife will be asking for suggestions for the Holidays for gifts for me, it's the least I could do....

Twin rivers of American Pop music are Africa and the Southern Appalachians. Here's my man Dwight Yoakam holding up his part.

This next one proves once and for all that white men can't dance.

Good old Cowboy Bebop. Loved the show, not as a kid though.

Jeff Beck - Angel

That young girl Tal Wilkenfeld is one good looking funky bass player and Jeff Beck can still pull tone
