I’ve seen those guys once here in Burbank. They sound great. I love the treatment of chords, but also like how full his rhy. sounds for 4 strings. On another note one of my students has contracted me to learn Cry me a River” I always loved the way Barney plays on it. Consequently I bought a Kay Star LP and heard Barney Kessesl’s playing all the way through it. It didn’t mention him in the liner but was definitely him.
I recently bought a couple hundred back issues of Guitar Player from around 1980 on. Only $45! It is the best bathroom reading ever; plus lots of great lessons inside. Seems like the older issues focused on the players I’m interested in – Junior Barnard, etc. If anyone needs a scan of something, let me know and I’ll see if I have it.
