    Default guitar returned after 45 years

    Here's some hope for all who've lost instruments.

    Happy Canada Day. 🍁

    (Regarding the video: Lenny Breau was Randy Bachman's guitar teacher.)
    Robert Johnson's mother, describing blues musicians:
    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."

    Love the headline, Guess Who Got His Guitar Back

    Personally, I've been spending time the last few months going back to the music of my youth (I was born in '55) ... and in the past three weeks, it's been The Guess Who. I've listened to the entire catalog several times over, mainly because I got Albert Flasher stuck in my head for a week or two. Undun had its turn as well, and all the hits were fun too. Also because when I was a kid I don't think I appreciated how awesome Burton's voice actually was, or how perfectly in the groove and driving the songs their drummer was. Freaking amazing.

    What a great story for Randy to be reunited with that Gretsch! Thanks for sharing.
