on the record

Tommy Emmanuel shared an interesting piece of advice in a recent interview with Guitarist. Here’s what he said: “Skill comes before music. Then practice will turn those skills into something musical.” We can take him to mean that the licks we learn can be useful tools but aren’t actually all that musical unless you play them at a moment when the music really calls out for that phrase. It’s so important to just stop and remember that music is a dialogue between the musicians making the music together in the moment. And, thus, simply inserting set-piece licks into musical situations they don’t quite fit can be the guitar equivalent of being the guy who tells joke after set-piece joke at a party when everyone else wants to have a proper…

blood brothers

Back in October 2017 we ran a review of the original Danelectro ’66. A hardtail reboot of the cult mid-60s Mosrite Combo model, the semi-hollow ’66 was a radical move from a brand that is best known for picking clean the bones of its own back catalogue. Aside from the lipstick-tube bridge pickup, aluminium top nut, not to mention the logo on the headstock, the ’66 is not your classic Dano. It is, however, very bloody good, so word of a new variant was met with enthusiasm ’round these parts. At first glance, the new ’66T has the cool Johnny Ramone vibe of its predecessor, albeit with a Wilkinson vibrato chiselled into its top. Like the ’66, this new model features a semi-hollow alder body with plenty of eye-candy including a…

orchestral manoeuvres

We’ve reviewed several instruments in Martin’s Reimagined range, so an in-depth description of those reimaginings is probably not required here. But a quick rundown of the upgraders to this great-looking Orchestra Model includes: scalloped bracing; tinted top toner; old-style Martin headstock script; open-gear tuners; bold herringbone binding; high-performance neck taper, and vintage-style fingerboard inlays. It’s good to see Martin giving a bit of love to its Standard line, and not just concentrating on the super-high-end stuff such as the Authentic and signature models. It started with the upgrades to the now-brilliant D-18 and – as this is the bread-and-butter of the company’s output – deserves to look right, play right and sound right. Materials-wise the usual 28-style appointments apply with solid Indian rosewood back and sides, Sitka spruce top and bracing, and…
