  1. My husband heard this from downstairs and as he walked up the steps he said, “He’s doing ‘One Way Out’!” Well done. And he wants to know if you bought a gold top just for this solo. 🙂

  2. Too funny. No, I bought it last August. It’s an epiphone, not a Gibson. They started selling Joe Bonamassa signature Les Pauls, and the Epiphone is made by their custom shop, has the long neck-tenon and Gibson U.S. Burstbuckers, so it’s a great guitar for a lot less money. And it never hurts that Dickey plays one…

    Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

    edit: and by “Dickey plays one…” I didn’t mean an Epiphone, but acknowledged the point regarding the gold-top Les Paul

  4. I have been playing guitar for… well, how long now? Since February 2, 2016! I bought a used acoustic for $40 and put some new strings on it and tuned it and am trying to find my way through the wilderness. I’m almost 59 yrs old and have a weak left hand from an accident 16 years ago. But I’m determined to keep plugging. I’m practicing every day (BTW, I can’t play any other instrument and can’t read music!). I’ve always been a big fan of The ABB and was happy to find your site… maybe some day I can do the licks on One Way Out!

    • Congratulations, this is a great hobby! Like you, I started this with a left-hand problem related to a couple of strokes that had made playing impossible for years and only restarted trying to play in 2011… this is totally doable for you.

      With videos and tab, learning is much easier than when I first learned in the sixties. Back then I learned by putting a record-player tone-arm on an approximate spot on a record, then tried to find the spot on the guitar…and did that thousands of times trying to learn songs.

      It is so much easier to learn today. You sound very motivated, and that is the only real difference between people who learn to play and who develop decent skill and those who don’t.

      So there is no doubt in my mind that you or anyone should be able to play this and most songs.

      Just remember to start slow. Don’t practice any part of a song faster than you can play it well ten times in a row, then increase the speed.

      Chrome browser also has a feature that allows you to slow the speed of a video down by half while maintaining pitch.

      When I practice loops, I use a program for my macbook pro called CAPO, it allows you to loop any section you want at any speed, and even allows you to change pitch if you want.

      If there is anything I can do to help, feel free to ask.

      Best of luck,

      • Thanks for the advice and the tips about Chrome. Sorry to hear of your strokes, but it looks like you’ve made a very good recovery. My father had a severe stroke when in his fifties (I was 15), so I can appreciate what you’ve gone through. I suffered a traumatic brain injury 16 years ago in an accident and lost some strength and dexterity in my left hand (I recovered very well, all things considered and am very grateful!).

        My dad had always wanted to play and two years before his stroke, my mom surprised him with a gift of a beautiful Gibson acoustic. I fooled with it a bit in college but never tried seriously. But now I have time and am determined to learn something with the guitar. If I get halfway decent, I’ll fetch the Gibson from my sister’s (other side of the country).

        Thanks again!


      • Weird coincidence. My father also had a stroke, but he was thirty-nine and died instantly. That’s why I was not surprised when it happened to me, nor that they gave me at best three months to live….that was 2004. I guess only the good die young! Haha.

        Glad to help.
