#4 Would You Spend $40 On Strings?
Guitar strings are one of the cheaper experiments you can do to modify the tone of your guitar. That notion held pretty strongly up until about two weeks ago when I bought a set of strings that I certainly wouldn’t describe as inexpensive.

#3 What’s On the Turntable This Week?
Today’s artist feature comes courtesy of Acoustic Tuesday fan Bob W. from Kichener, Ontario. Bob says, “He’s an amazing talent that plays with a lot of feel and dynamics and attributes influence from Michael Hedges.” I agree with Bob here in fact I think you will too. Check out this modern finger style player who uses percussive techniques….

#2 Honeyboy’s Life In A Book
Edwards, Honeyboy is very much an under the radar Blues musician who is connected deeply to the roots of the Delta Blues. This documentary’s amazing, but there are more resources available about him than just the documentary.

#1 Do You Think This Documentary Is Blazing Hot?
I want to make sure you know about a guitar geek full length film that’s directed by Ethan Hawke. It was just released on August 17th, in theaters across Texas. I’m not sure of the trajectory of this movie but I just want it on your radar because it definitely piqued my interest and I think it will perk you guitar geek up as well. Check out my thoughts in this week’s episode….

Greetings from the Smokey Mountains of NC
#smallwin After long weeks of practice, I now play songs in a dark room so I can’t look at the fret board and I now play by feel and memory.
Great question about the “Martin Titanium Core Strings”. Looking forward to the answers. I am very happy with the “Santa Cruz Medium strings” you recommended. Now all of my guitars have them.
The Lovely Young Kat, my Bride of 37 years, has not only started watching Acoustic Tuesday with me, she’s making me wait to watch it until she can too!

Great show not sure I would commit 40 bucks unless they last 3 times longer than coated strings.
Maybe they could be made from “adamantium” lol. Keep up the geekiness.
