my 1st guitar

Hey guys,

There's one tune that always jams in my brain for the rest of day, every time I play Bireli's GP&Friends - probably because it's la derriere melodie: "La Premiere Guitare"

Has anyone posted the changes to that one?

Thanks
bw

"All right already. Can't ya see my cheeks are red!? "

There goes my joke about you being full of hot air-too bad, it was a gas! Anyway, I haven't been able to find these changes, but will keep plugging away 'til I squeeze 'em out somewhere.

(In loving memory of Joseph Pujol, Le Petomane.)

Still looking, but I ran across lyrics for a tune called Ma Premiere Guitare-is this the same tune?

Also stumbled onto a Bireli solo transcription here:

More to come...

Once more, not sure if this is the same tune or not, but:

Good luck!

Glad that was the one, but all thanks go to gadjodrom; whoever runs it is a saint, in my book. A great first-stop site for any future chart hunting.

Yeah, that's a great little tune & fun to play. Bireli does it up a whole step, but a simple enough transposition.

That is a good website, & I'll have to bookmark that one.

BTW: Jack, did you get your RNT book(s) yet?

Gratefully,
bw

Still no Nolan books for me, partly due to finances, and partly to my inability to pick one to begin with-they all seem worthwhile. I'm thinking I might just save my pennies for the Gig Book. And while we're on the topic, does anyone know if you can buy these at their gigs, or is it strictly mail order?

I will be buying mine at the Gig:!: Djangofest is coming...
As for the others, yes, they are expensive, and yes, I think they are worth it. Hell, just buy one at a time. I met a guy in Seattle last Saturday at a jam and he had all of them on his mini disc player piped through his amp system. Very cool! He had it all runnningthrough the one amp. I liked it. He also had a really sweet old Epi carved top cutaway he says he bought new in 1953! It has been very well played in...
