Hey there. Welcome to the Tone Taxi. Today we happen to be on somebody’s private driveway.
The ULTIMATE Guitar Practice Routine
Just show up every day, and I'll tell you what to play!
I think it’s called Look Far Drive. This is generally what happens when Joel and I get in the Tone Taxi. We get basically taken away to magical places. This is a really pretty drive, but I’m not quite entirely sure we should be on it.
Anyways, it cannot halt the musical discussion we need to have. Today’s discussion is going to be about the one that got away. I’m not talking about that prom date that was … it was just a magical evening.
I’m not talking about that kind of one that got away. I’m talking about the guitar that got away, that one that you might have traded in that you just can’t seem to get back, or that one that you sold to a buddy and then he went and sold it, and then pretty soon there was no hope in getting it back. It was one that left an impression on you.
For me, I actually have three ones that got away. I had a 2007 Larrivee LO3R that I traded in. I got to be honest, I really wish I had that one back.
My second one was a 1920s Style 4 Weissenborn. That one I traded in for a bass and it got purchased immediately from the store. I have no way to get it back again.
Then the last one was a 1950s Gibson HG-00. It was a square neck, small body acoustic guitar, played lap-style. It was super cool and I have not seen one like I since I got rid of it.
Those are my three ones that got away. I really want to hear the ones that got away from you. I’m not trying to stir up bad feelings, but I just want to share because I think it’s something that all of us guitarists can relate to. Please leave a comment below and let me know about the one that got away. Thanks for riding along today.
