What do you say to a guitar player in a 3-piece suit?

"Will the defendant please rise ..."

A guitarist sat tuning his instrument all through the first set that  

the band

played.  Each time the leader pointed to him to take a chorus, he would

say, "No, man, I'm still tuning up."  Half an hour into the job he was  

still

not ready.  "Why do you need so much time for tuning?" asked the leader.

"When I went to hear Segovia he played a whole concert and I didn't see

him tune up once!'  The guitar player gave a shrug.  "Some cats just  

don't

give a damn, man."

In the summer of 1969, a mail sorter at a New York post office received a letter addressed "To The Greatest Drummer in the World." There was no address or return address and the sorter wasn't sure what to do.

Fortunately, there was a former drummer who worked the front counter of the Post Office who promptly found Max Roach's address and forwarded the letter.

Max Roach received the letter and said, "Oh no, I'm not the greatest drummer in the world."

Max then promptly forwarded the letter to Gene Krupa, who said "Somebody must've made a mistake."

Gene then forwarded the letter on to Buddy Rich.

Of course, Buddy had been waiting his entire life for that moment. He read the words "To The Greatest Drummer in the World" and smiled from ear-to-ear as he ripped open the envelope.

He began to read the letter, "Dear Ringo..."

Charles,
That "studio musician" you refer to who was told to listen to the cellos....that's a true story about Tommy Tedesco, but he wasn't playing bass, but guitar.  He told it often at GIT.  He was a real funny guy.

How do you turn a duck into a soul artist?




Put it in the oven until its Bill Withers.

it may be time for another joke,  so.....

a man is walking in a graveyard when he hears the third symphony played backward. when it's over, the SEcond symphony starts playing, also backward, and then the First.  "what's going on?" he asks a cemetery worker.   "It's Beethoven," says the worker, "he's decomposing."

paul, you are right about that being tommy. thank you for noticing. i love the diagram in his book called Anatomy of a guitar player. page 15.  i think it might be by his son?? damon T...  do you know?  and those wonderful albums on the discovery label when tommy was recording jazz for his own albums.  wow!! i think that was the first time i heard jon kurnick. and jim bruno, e.g. "live from musicians's institute" on tommy's discovery-trend album. two fine young guitarists. actually, three. in 1979 tommy was also a young man, relatively speaking. at least younger than when he died.

regardless, tommy was amazing, a generous man.just like many here in tg land.  i saw him in tucson doing one of his fender seminars somewhere between 1977 and 1979, and he did the schtick where he played the same lick even though the leader of the session was asking for different styles but the leader didn't know the difference. i read the "true" cello story in an interview with dennis budimir. there's no getting anything past you. tee hee. by the way, thank you for the wonderful work product you again this month applied to ted's beautiful music.   wishing you the best.

peace
