Late last week I wound up with a new guitar. It’s a nice hollowbody Gretsch with a Bigsby, and when I got it, my fingers went wonky due to MG (it’s summer, this happens a lot in hot weather).  I was able to tune it, but playing it and practicing with it will have to wait until my fingers want to cooperate.

However, I was able to hold a pencil long enough to do a rough doodle of it…except that my fingers got worse by the time I got to the neck, so I just cropped out the really sloppy part. Here’s a pencil drawing of my new toy. Maybe some day I’ll feel confident enough to inflict my playing on you. For now, just look at the drawing.

Meanwhile, Monday at on The AIR, this week our Haversham Recording Institute friends are busy gearing up to provide translation services for The Olympics. We will be running encore plays of recent episodes of Prognosis, Psychedelic Shack and Sydney’s Big Electric Cat for the next few weeks. This afternoon you can hear Nigel Pye’s Psychedelic Shack at 2 PM and Herman Linte with Prognosis at 3 PM.

At 7 PM tune in for 12 hours of the best of Curtain Call, kicking off with an encore of last week’s 100th episode.

You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on the embedded radio player at the top of the right-hand column of this blog.
