What’s up TAC Family?! While we may not be able to travel like we used to, that doesn’t mean we can’t prepare for a fun trip in the future! Austin, Texas is definitely going to be one of the first places I vacation to next year.
Austin is home to great music, incredible food, rich music history, awesome record stores, and unforgettable guitar shops.
To get the full scoop on where I think every guitar geek should go to, be sure to watch the full episode of Acoustic Tuesday!
In addition to talking about Austin, TX, I want to share with you the inspiring story of a TAC Family member who went from being a shy beginner to a budding guitarist!
As always, you can catch Acoustic Tuesday at 10 am every Tuesday in these four places:
Congratulations, Tony! On cramming so much guitar geeky goodness into What, under 18 minutes? Does this one go in the books as the fastest A.T. ever? I particularly enjoyed Sharon T’s story!! (gives me hope for my own journey!) By the way, I’ve got a sister who lives in Austin, I’ve never been there, but now feel compelled to visit her before she does something silly like move !
Loved the Austin review! Haven’t been there, but it’s on my list.
Don’t you have to visit Antone’s club ?
Another cool episode – thanks for the Austin music scene tour and for highlighting role models.
Thank you Tony for another great acoustic Tuesday,I live in Australia & love your show
and connection to music.I have to tell you that I bought myself a Gibson J45 & I just love it.
For your info,I practice about 2 hours a day- can’t get enough finger picking style- always looking out for new techniques & styles.
Catch you next week mate😎🎸
Evangeline’s Cafe on Brody for Cajun food and music and Sam’s Point Allred and Radio Coffee & Beer on Menchaca and Central Market Cafe both North and South. Would you also include the Elephant Room on Congress for jazz. Next time you visit Austin know you need more time. Non guitar but inspiring your creative juices would include a visit to Bull Creek or Mount Bonnell or Wild Basin. Hula Hut in Lake Austin is also a treat. If you need your guitar nursed back to health Erlewine Guitars can work magic… just ask Willie.
Son went to law school longhorn. Been to Austin . Broken Spoke was cool.
Wow, interesting episode, but funny thing happened after watching it. I returned to Acoustic Tuesday Episode 117 from November 17, 2019. That was when we had to say so long to Noah J. Hecmann the first, “sorry for the spelling”. Is he still around? Do you and he still run together? How is the wife and kids? Is he adding to the Hecmann clan? Not to be nosey or anything, just kind of miss him. Those early episodes I kind of felt like the two of you were friends that I could hang out with for an hour each week. I still don’t miss an episode Tony and I feel as you are a close friend that I can hang out with for an hour each week. Often I wish that somehow we could get together and play guitar or geek out at a music or guitar store. But, right now all I can do is wish you many years of happiness and continued success with TAC and your growing family. God Bless,
Nice show on the places to see in Austin. On your next visit stop and have a drink at the Driscoll Hotel. One of the oldest in Texas. Full of history going all the way back. If you have a few bucks and can afford it spend the night and enjoy breakfast the next morning. If you’re interested in cowboy boots must-see Justin’s Book store.
Next time your in Austin you could try and go to Esther’s Follies on 6th street. Lots of Laughter and Magic. Closed for Covid 19 but hopefully will open again soon.
