The Western Elstons are at Simon’s Tavern tonight, Wednesday, August 7, 8:30-11pm in Chicago. 
I’ve been in a big Chet mood after going to the Chet Atkins Convention in Nashville last month. This tune sounds easy but has the typical dastardly little Chet moves that tie all of our fingers and brains in knots. Here’s some of his version of the old standard, “Nobody’s Sweetheart” from the ‘50s.

It’s Friday night, I’m at The California Clipper tonight with The Modern Sounds featuring Beau Sample and Alex Hall, 10:30pm to 1am. 
Here’s a guitar video for you that was a real challenge for me to execute. I think Chet Atkins’ “Chinatown” from the '50s is just about the most intense two minutes of guitar music on record, but I’m a little biased because I’m a Chet, fingerstyle, and country jazz freak, so this is the stuff I like! #chetatkins #guitarvideo #fingerstyle #fingerstyleguitar #travispicking #thumbpick #echoplex #vintageguitar #westernswing #rockabilly #gibson #gibson295 #gibsones #es295 #p90s #bigsby #classicjazz #vintage.

Keith Richards’ 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard. This guitar was instrumental (ha!) in reviving global interest in the Les Paul model after Keith played it during the Stones’ first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show in October 1964. A very happy #gibsunday everyone!

If you don't want me to stare at the floor for a brief moment again, you'll come see @prettyfinished tonight at Piranha Bar. Staring at the floor lowers awareness and it could lead to terrible things such as: missing the bus, failure to yield, not waving back to someone who waved at you, not staring at the sun (might be beneficial as I've learned), and having foreign objects thrown at your big ol' melon head. See, it's not just about seeing some saucy shreddies tonight; it's about saving lives, people! 📸@vincenzo.mariano.photography

Burns Red Special Conversion
We undertook this conversion a couple of years ago for Nikki, and it was great fun. These Burns and newer BM models look great and are certainly terrific value, but the dimensions are just far enough out when compared to Brian’s RS that a fair bit of modification and fabrication is needed to perform a realistic conversion. The body outline is subtly different, and the inclusion of a fulcrum vibrato not only dictates the replacement pickguard length and shape (as does the overly large control rout) but crucially it cramps the pickup spacing so they’re actually in the wrong positions when compared to the original. The difference in resultant tone may be subtle but it is noticeable. 
The job requires filling and re-routing for correct pickup placement as well as some meaty modification for the new vibrato and bridge system - not to mention cutting a bespoke pickguard… All in all a very involved process, but also a very satisfying one. If you’d like to read more about how we did it and see a whole lot more pics of the job, you can find our original post on our Facebook page under ‘Albums’..
