Stevie Ray Vaughan Gives a Blistering Demonstration of His Guitar Technique

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZoX6Q0UK8A What made Stevie Ray Vaughan such a great guitarist? If you ask Metallica’s Kirk Hammett, a devoted student of the blues, it’s “his timing, his tone, his feel, his vibrato, his phrasing–everything. Some people are just born to play guitar, and Stevie was definitely one of them.” This may come as disappointing news to guitar players who want to sound like SRV but weren’t born with his genes. Hammett assures them it’s possible to approximate his ...

The Sound of Revenge by Chamillionaire Turns 15

Chamillionaire was one of the dopest mixtape rappers not only in Texas, but everywhere. His Mixtape Messiah series is legendary and he was damn good at marketing himself. Nowadays, Chamillionaire is deep in investing and no longer puts out music. 15 years ago today, Chamillionaire dropped his major label debut, The Sound of Revenge. Bun B, Scarface, Killer Mike, Lil Wayne, Pastor Troy and Krayzie Bone all appeared on The Sound of Revenge. Turn It Up was his first single and it featured another...

How The Houston Symphony Returned To The Stage For Live Performances

To be honest, part of the reason this could even be tried was that the governor of Texas didn’t institute a wide lockdown. That said, the symphony, which resumed weekly live concerts in July, consulted researchers from Rice to figure out where “microparticles” from musicians go within the symphony hall, and to institute better ventilation and filtration systems. (But the concerts have a livestreaming option for audience members who are not persuaded.) – Houston Chronicle

#TrackoftheDay: “You’re a Vampire”

One-Eyed DollUSA (2010) Image: Their Facebook. So we’re back after a giant tree down the street took out the power lines for a couple of days. We took the power company people who were working last night some Halloween candy and shortly thereafter–the power was back! A freakin’ Halloween miracle!

The University of Texas school song, "The Eyes of Texas," is disparaged as originating in minstrel shows.

I'm reading a WaPo column by Cindy Boren: "Texas players told to stand for school song, despite its origin in blackface minstrel shows."  The lyrics to “The Eyes of Texas” were inspired in part by Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, who after the Civil War was a teacher at what would become Washington and Lee University, where he made an impression on future UT president William Prather by repeatedly telling students that “the eyes of the South are upon you.” .  ... Edmund T. Gordon, a professor of...

Hear Musicians Play the Only Playable Stradivarius Guitar in the World: The “Sabionari”

What makes one artisan stand out in a field of highly skilled competitors? When we think of classical instruments, we think of the Stradivari family, famed makers of violins, violas, cellos, and other instruments. But the Stradivarius’ success may owe as much to chance as to superior craftsmanship. A Texas A&M professor emeritus of biochemistry, Joseph Nagyvary (also a violinist and violin maker), discovered that Stradivarius instruments were soaked in chemicals “to protect them from a w...
