Blackberry Blossom guitar lesson in style of Tony Rice with tablature

This version of Blackberry Blossom bluegrass song in the style of Tony Rice with guitar tablature, was recorded at 160 beats-per-minute, but he plays it much faster than that….I figured this was about as fast as it would be of any use to anyone who wanted to learn how to play it.

If you want to help me continue to work out these riffs/solos and songs, and particularly, to put out the tab, take a moment to buy and download my cover of “Little Martha” on iTunes. I’d sure appreciate it!

I realize some of you can’t afford it, so that’s cool…but I know some of you can. If you can’t maybe add one of my songs to your spotify (or other streaming service) playlist, or hit the Paypal Donate button. That would be cool too!

It’s a better world when we all do our part.
Thanks,
Rick

American Musical Supply Review: I Received an Unplayable Guild F-150RCE Jumbo Acoustic Electric guitar

UPDATE AUGUST 24TH 2015: AMERICAN MUSICAL SUPPLY MADE A FAIR OFFER – I ACCEPTED

Announced on twitter that I accepted AMS offer

I bought and eagerly awaited the arrival of my new Guild F-150RCE Jumbo Acoustic Electric guitar from AmericanMusical.com and the guitar has serious neck problems, so I need to send it back.

Video review showing extent of the problems is below.

(EDIT: UPDATE BELOW – I adjusted the truss rod, and it improved the guitar dramatically, but did not fix the dead high-E string, nor of course, the crack at the 12th fret. You can see the new video below the original to hear how it sounds after adjustment.)

I know that from time-to-time, problems occur, and the way in which a company deals with the problem is an indication of their commitment to customer service in a very competitive online environment.

American Musical Supply readily offered to exchange my guitar for another when their next shipment arrives in two-weeks, exchange it for the “scratch-and-dent” guitar they have in stock, or to refund my money.

It would be three weeks until I would receive a replacement “new” guitar, so I asked what they would be willing to do to make me a happy customer….nothing beyond replacing/refunding.

Suffice to say that I am not happy with their customer service.

Guild Guitar is now owned by Cordoba Music Group, after their purchase of the company from Fender. This is a Chinese manufactured guitar, but at $1250, it is not inexpensive. This should never have been shipped.

I’ve purchased from zzounds.com, what they call their “sister” company, and they’ve quickly resolved any quality related problems to my satisfaction..and sadly, there have been a few.

So, here it is, an unplayable Guild guitar:

Thank you for watching!
