Default My son and I try out some new gear

This Grateful Dead cover, "Going Down the Road Feeling Bad" is a lot of fun. My son is playing my new PRS silver sky, my first C-19 purchase. (I sold 2 guitars and gave one to my niece so I'm still making a little progress -- three out and one in.) I'm playing my custom Bowerman. Ipad recording.

February is the annual freeform Dead Covers Project on youtube, very loosely organized by the Grateful Dead YT channel. No rules other than record and post a video on youtube and mark it #DeadCoversProject 2021. Some get included in the playlist on the GD channel. Many others don't. No rhyme or reason. Great way to kill to time. I will post one of my favorites next.

Sure wish my dad could play guitar with me, solid cover! I need to learn more Dead, myself. Long overdue

That was really good! Both of you sounded great on your guitars, in particular.

That PRS silver sky sounded great the way your son is playing it and your guitar, your custom Bowerman, also sounds great!

Great combination of sounds! What fun!

Thanks Bob. He learned the lick and brought this one to me. Another pandemic thing to be grateful for.

Started...I really love seeing kids and parents sharing music. Thatís a lifetime of memories for you both, Iíll bet. I think it helps establish good values all the way around.
Your son is quite accomplished...very smooth and musical. Tell him we enjoy seeing/hearing him. Your singing is spot on and your playing, of course, supports the song perfectly. Iíd love to hear your vocals through a mic and a PA of some description.

Thanks for posting.
Roger

Thanks Glenn. Maybe one of these days we will rig up the mics and do a proper recording, but as the one who is asking for help, Iím always waiting.

Thanks Roger. I passed your sentiments on to my son. He smiled. We play a couple of songs together almost every night. I canít say what it means to him but I cherish every minute.

We did break out the PA and an amp for my guitar so maybe we will record the room with all of us amplified one of these days.

Really nice job there! Great to see that this pandemic has had its silver linings.

My 13 year old daughter has been playing her Martin more than ever and has been writing her own songs! They are quite beautiful.
