As much as I love electric instruments, effects and amplifiers, acoustic guitar sometimes makes you feel closer to the "Core of existence."

That sounds so corny, but I think it's true! For two months now, I've been loving the simple life of an acoustic musician. Think I'll just hang out here a while longer.

My first +YouTube video in some time, this doubles as a studio tour as well as a dual between my Jazz guitar and the classical. Bach brings it all together.

Omitted from this video is the improvisational duet on Bach’s invention that preceded what you see here.

I very rarely use tablature (tab) when notating music

Is this a mistake? Which method of notation do you find most helpful?

Does learning to read music seem too difficult? Or has tab proven to be sufficient for your requirements?

I'm often asked for tabs of my music and I offer lead sheets (music notation), but is tab better (more informative) to you?

Please let me know what you prefer!

This Saturday evening, a special concert will take place for the lucky people in downtown Petaluma CA. 

Especially in the past few years, I've been delighted to collaborate with musicians all over the world and am lucky to count them as good friends as well. 

Though he won't say it, +Neil Alexander is a keyboard genius. He and I have recorded two EPs together w/ internet supergroup LegoLand Empire (http://legolandempire.bandcamp.com/) and I'm thrilled to finally perform live with Neil..

Bassist +Steve Uccello is from Santa Cruz. He and I recorded a lovely live album in front an internet audience (http://store.atmosmusic.com/album/live-stream-jazz) and I psyched to have him holding down the low end.

+Darin Wilson and I have played together and sub gigs out to one another from time-to-time. Darin has organized this concert and I'm super-glad to hang with him again.

Join us this Saturday night. RESERVATIONS ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: http://darinwilson.wix.com/petalumajazz

I'm just some crazy guitar-nerd/ studio rat hanging out sharing what I've learned with people who express interest and who should take notice but +The Huffington Post?

Guitar Lessons from a friendly guy on a Video Call! Ready to ROCK?

+Rob Michael, a swingin' Californian musician, jumps into Hangouts with his guitar usually strapped on, ready to provide some  conversation music.
You get to see his whole studio and collection of equipment each time!

Recently +Google premiered their new +Helpouts site which offers HELP in a number of areas either for free or a fee that allows users to write a review of their helpout when it has concluded, with text and a rating out of 5 stars. It has an Amazon feel to it. The customer can choose to record the helpout or not, but will only be able to be refunded if there is a video record (A 100% back money guarantee!) due to not being satisfied with their paid live help. 

There are #Helpouts  offered in multiple categories including:
Art & Music, Computers & Electronics, Cooking, Education & Careers, Fashion & Beauty, Fitness & Nutrition, Health and Home & Garden (with most likely more categories to come in the future).

Have you hosted or attended a Helpout yet?
        Any advice to offer other G+ers? 

Rob has been helping out too…
Check out Rob's Guitar Helpout : http://bit.ly/I0B472

Also, you can see him in a retro hangout playing a cool, retro tune you might know. #powerupmonday   #musicmonday
