Hi folks, a little bit of blues noodling on my Cordoba Mini R Guilele
Oh yeah, that piece took me on an interesting journey - original? And very polished playing Campbell, particularly liked the ending! And the black backdrop.
I always admire your videos, Campbell. How satisfying it must be to play so well.
Swingy Blues is my favorite. I indulge myself by playing in the morning before I go to work.
This piece was wonderful!
Great stuff Campbell, I was brought up with all that Travis picking Atkins style. Davey Graham was very much into this style of playing also. "Going down that road feeling bad" was the first ever country blue tune I ever played.
I have a Gretsch guitalele which I dont think sounds great. You get a really nice sound out of the Cordoba. They are not expensive and are available in the UK. You have had the Cordoba a short while, are you views still very positive?
Hi Mike, the Cordoba Mini is wonderful value for money, I'm very happy with mine. I fitted an LR Baggs Five 0 pickup, changed to some decent strings & that was it, they are basically fine, straight out of the box.
It sounds like we have similar influences in guitar players, once I discovered the styles of Travis, Reed, Atkins, Graham, Jansch, Renbourn etc, I was hooked
Thanks for that info Campbell! When I was learning the guitar I just soaked up everything from heavy rock to classical music. I think I lived through the best times for music!
