Have you ever wondered what three years of hosting a YouTube guitar show does to someone? Well, you’ll see as I try 11 different hot sauces, answer YOUR questions, and revisit the BEST moments from the last three years.
Acoustic Tuesday has gone through big changes over the last three years. Even more, I’ve gone through some big changes…which came first? In this video, you’ll be able to see the evolution of Acoustic Tuesday.
You’ll also get a chance to hear some answers to questions submitted by Acoustic Tuesday viewers like you! I answer everything from when the last time I shaved was to the biggest lessons I learned from my father (who’s also a musician!).
I want to thank you for supporting Acoustic Tuesday over the years. Whether you started watching last week or have been tuning in since day one…thank you!
Be sure to take a moment to look back on your guitar journey after you finish watching this episode. Reflect and practice gratitude for the awesome folks you’ve met along the way!
As always, you can catch Acoustic Tuesday at 10 am every Tuesday in these four places:
One quickly learns little things like pinkies can matter in the biggest of ways.
It’s obvious. If you did not play guitar you would be selling shoes. A la Spinal Tap.
What happened to Tobasco Sauce? It was first produced in 1868. It is like leaving Martin out of a guitar comparison!
I would like to see reviews of some imports; Alvarez, Cort, Takamine, etc.
Oh Tony, I can’t believe you didn’t choose to be the guitar of Molly Tuttle! 🙂
Tony! A great show really enjoyed the history of Acoustic Tuesday. Nice to see Noah.
I can’t believe you did all those Hot Sauce’s. Here’s to another 100. Can’t wait for that show.
Marathon?? Have you ran the Bridger Ridge Run? I helped Ed Anaker and Big Sky Wind Drinkers set the original course. My bride and I ran the finish area for the first couple of events.
Congrats on 3 years!! Wow! It’s a pleasure to watch you every Tuesday! Thoroughly enjoyed the 3 year celebration, but, you made my nose run just listening to you!
To the question of how to keep it “going”…..of course new music challenge, but more importantly go buy a new guitar. Something really really expensive. Let some sand out of the bags. No it won’t make your crappy playing sound any better but it will provide some incentive to play. When that wears off, what? Do I have to say?
LOVED this show. You have captured the success formula for teaching/mentoring and entertainment. Adding personal interest events, activities and stories makes you at least a friend if not honorary family and helps create a desire to interact and keep connected with you and with the guitar. I hope this adventure is profitable both economically and personally so you keep leading us on our journey with the guitar. Hope to be just like you when I grow up (I am 69 YO) LOL. All the best,
Hello Tony and Happy 3 years , and to find another who loves Halloween as much as I do is great. When i was a kid growing up my Pop and i would watch all the Twilight Zones and any Vampire , Werewolf or Godzilla movies on. We were right there watching,
My Mom always asked what is so fun about Horror Movies? My Pop would say, well Sherman was born on Oct. 31st. so he’s got a little Monster in him. My Pop was the first Influence on me to learn and play Music. We were from Southern Alabama (Roll Tide Roll) and we moved out to California when i was 3. A lot of the country Music influence came with. Pops played Pedal Steel, and I would sit for hours and watch and listen. When i was Older i asked him to teach me and my Mom said absolutely not, because she didn’t want me out playing in bars and those kind of places. Well about a month Later the
Beatle- Mania Erupted in the US, and that was all it took. I gathered up all my Paper Route Money and went down to the local Music Shop and purchased my first Acoustic Guitar. It was an old used Harmony and i loved it! Now i have my own Guitarsenal , it’s Small but it’s Mine. Thank You Tony, I have learned a lot from you and your Show. Now just one more thing , about those Hot Sauces bro, We drink bottles of Hot Sauce with our Beer to try to Spice it up some. 🙂 Again Happy Anniversary.
I saw your glass of water hiding in waiting the minute the video started.
Give Dave’s Insanity Sauce a try… and be respectful.
Hi Tony, nice to have been part of your show since its inception. Quite a musical feat. You’re an inspiration to all who endeavor to pick up a stringbox and just go for it. Hope we can meet up some day when the plague becomes a thing of the past. Do they really EVER go away?
As for your celebratory show, the fireworks were something to behold! What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger? Are you sure that Whitney didn’t “tamper” with those croquettes? This show is a keeper! Long live A.T.!
Toooonnny, How can you NOT know that Billy Gibbons is the lead guitarist in ZZ Top??? Great, great player!
Have you ever reviewed a Zager Guitar!
I enjoyed the anniversary show and the Halloween past references. Having grown up in Northern Illinois myself, you could have been drinking PBRs with the hot stuff. Reference Tom Bukovac and his Rolling Rocks.
The guitar has fretless ancestors, like the Oud. Eastern music uses fretless instruments because they have 1/4 tones as well as half and whole tones.
RE best guitar for a beginner/intermediate, I have a couple of what would be considered good guitars, but I also have a GS Mini, and it’s great! I don’t worry about humidity, etc. so I leave it out all the time, and I pick it up almost every time I set eyes on it.
TONY, Congrats on three years of Acoustic Tuesdays!! You know, this hot sauce thing was fun at first, but by the time you got to Kolohe Kid I was just feeling sorry for you; like watching someone you like being tortured.
Tony, awesome job!. Regarding the hot sauces, it almost looked like you were taking shots of whiskey. The further you went along, the more fun you were having.
Well done Tony! At least you didn’t do the Show with 13 different whiskeys!
I too thought that if you were someone’s guitar it would be Molly Tuttle’s. But then I realized that when she actually played you, you’d be so stunned nothing would come out!
Such a great show. I felt very sorry for you! Hope you swallowed a pint of sour cream after the show.
Huge congrats on this great milestone of 300 episodes. So glad be be a part of this family and I am thankful that I clicked that link, and that your program continues to motivate me.
TONY, Ive spent my life loving hot sauce, and after more years than I would like to say, I would like to give you the name of the best hot sauce in Ratherbwalkn lifetime list….. Drum Roll please…. From the wonderful little country Belize comes the original hot sauce. “Maria Sharps” form the Maya Mountains come a hot sauce made basically of carrot, vinegar and Habanero peppers. After 40 years of hot sauce searching this is the one that is tops for me, give it a try, its special
Tony, the third anniversary show was fabulous. It’s amazing how much entertainment can be derived from watching other people in pain, melting their face. I do have an idea for your fourth anniversary show, eleven different bourbons! Doing a shot in between answering questions. On second thought maybe just a half shot. Or better yet, a hot sauce AND bourbon show, that way you can cool down the heat with a little drink! However, I don’t think doing this type of for ninety minutes would be too good, well that would be up to you.
Thanks again for a great program, always great, always entertaining! GGU!
Dude, you gotta have a beer with the hot sauces!
This was hilarious and fun! You were looking a little peak-ed at the end… Congrats on 3 years and thanks for answering my father q done in the dark!
Thank you for choosing my question for this episode! I am honored to be a small part of the 3 year anniversary! I even showed my kids and now they think I’m famous because I am on YouTube! Great episode! Thanks Tony!
Chilli. The gift that gives twice. Ouch!!!!!
This show, to me, was the most entertaining of all the shows I’ve watched, and I’ve watched a bunch of them. Although Noah and Levi were only briefly mentioned, watching you punish your mouth and innards with liquid fire more than made up for not being able to see more of them. There must be something innately sick about getting amusement out of watching someone you like and admire perform self-immolation on camera. Nevertheless, there were several times that I almost fell out of my chair laughing. I could only imagine what you were going through. Back when I was a young airman stationed at Great Falls, Montana, the wife and I plus some friends were to a local Mexican restaurant for dinner. This was my first ever trip to not only eat Mexican food but to go to a Mexican restaurant. After taking our orders, the waitress brought out a bowl of something that looked like chili and set it in front of me. Naive me, thinking it was “not the house” soup or chili grabbed a spoon and was just about to take a big bite when the waitress came running over in panic saying “No, no, señor. No eat no eat. Hot sauce.” Great show Tony. Enjoyed every minute of it. Hope you were able to extinguish your flaming insides.
