Perhaps of interest to musicians, especially guitarists...

That was cool, had no idea it was a product of (stodgy old) Thomas Organs (or Whirlpool). Long, strange ride.

I was disappointed they didn't throw in the Clavinet lick for "Up on Cripple Creek" - Wah-wa wah-wa, wah-wah-wah-wah wa wahhh wah (though they did mentioned Stevie Wonder using it on Clav). Sounds great on a Rhodes as well. The pot on mine is pretty noisy.

Jimi Hendrix and Frank Zappa were both pioneers in the use of wah pedals, but they also used them in ways other than wah-wah-wah. Check out "Machine Gun" by Hendrix, and "Return of the Son of Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar" by Zappa for good examples of a wah and a distortion pedal being used to create an oscillator-like sound.

Stephen Stills was also an early adopter; check out the live Carry On from Four-Way Street.

A few other wah songs, offhand: Mike McCready/Pearl Jam song "Go", Mick Box/Uriah Heep on "Salisbury", SRV/Vaughan Bros. on "Telephone Song", etc.

For that matter: Pedal to the Metal: The 25 Greatest Wah Solos of All Time | Guitar World

Really enjoyed that one. Thanks for sharing.

Okay, these guys take their R/C models very seriously. On both, start about one minute in.

I spend much to much time watching YouTube documentaries. Lately, I've been liking ones about master craftsmen/women a lot. Have recently watched:

Mastercrafts - BBC TV Series in 6 parts. Blacksmithing, Thatching, etc..

- in a competition format which is a bit silly but lots of interest nonetheless

The Ox - Portrait of a Master Woodworker


Adam Kramer - Revive Vintage Motorcycles

It does make the case for: "The industrial revolution has freed us."

Thanks. Never heard of her, but the list of songs she played on is incredible.

Great interview. Some of the music theory is over my head, but I love hearing people talk about their craft.

Mission Impossible, Bernadette, and a million others.

I think whining is universal. No matter how well off you have it, there's always something to complain about.

Mention on Mike Stern in another thread reminded me of this video, with Stern and Lee Ritenour.
