As mentioned last week, I’m a day late on this week’s TWiG. (We were camping in Yellowstone!) Lots of fun links to catch up on …
Jason Isbell is one of my favorites and Southeastern is one of the best collections of songs ever compiled in a single album so this was an interesting read. Speaking of Teles, I’ll be getting a beautiful Tele-style guitar very soon. (I might also be reviewing a cheap ~$100 tele style guitar soon so maybe I’m getting two Tele-style guitars soon. ha)
Saved you a click: Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers QB) plays a guitar in a commercial.
It seems they do these kinds of things every once in a while. They sent a uke on an expedition to the North Pole all the way back in 1926. And they sent a Martin Backpacker to space in 1994. (I used to own a Backpacker. Not worth it. Don’t buy one.)
Well, this is an interesting collab. “This fall, anyone who purchases Barbie dolls inspired by guitar-playing characters will also get three months of free Fender Play lessons.” Anything that potentially gets more people interested in playing guitar gets a thumbs up from me.
Wow, just wow. At least she smartened up thanks to the Reddit community and didn’t actually sell it. But still, wow.
That’s all for this week!
