Speaking of BIG fish, I saw an article on the CBC website this morning that a sturgeon, four metres long — and weighed roughly 500 kilograms was caught in BC on the Fraser River Monday in Chilliwack, east of Vancouver. The couple posed with the fish for a picture.
You can see the picture and read the article here.
Gibson has just released a new guitar called the SG Diablo Premium Plus with a pair of Gibson’s finest humbucking pickups, high-performance hardware from TonePros™ and Grover™, a full 24-frets for optimum lead playing (two more than the standard SG fingerboard), and your choice of high-gloss Manhattan Midnight (blue burst), Ice Tea Burst or Trans Black finish.
It looks all-right, but like someone else said on the Gibson site, I would have tone and volume buttons for both pickups. The guitar retails for around $2500. If you would like to learn more about it, you can see it on the Gibson website here.
I liked the band Foreigner back in the good ol’ days. Here is one of the tunes that took them to the top of the charts in the early ’70s:
A lot of the technique in this song is created by glombing the fretboard. What? You’re not familiar with the term “glomb”? Really, I don’t think there is such a word, but some friends and I invented the term for a technique on the guitar that employs the use of the thumb. This technique is something you wouldn’t show your guitar instructor. He would kick you out of the class and tell you to never come back.;-)
So if you have never used your thumb before as a digit on your left hand to play a bass line, while utilizing your other fingers in a normal pattern, this might seem a little odd.
Brandon Trapp from Gibson Guitar gives you a rundown this week on how to play this tune and “glomb” the fretboard in what I would like to call a respectable fashion.

Steve Krenz’s video tip this week is on using “Double Stops” — I didn’t know the technique by this name, but I’ve used it for years. You can see the video here:
This tip is right out of his Gibson’s Learn & Master Guitar course. You can learn more about this course here.

Another thing single people might have a little more time for is hunting. I know a lot of folks don’t care for the sport, but I always figured if you were going to eat whatever you shoot, it’s all-right.
So if you’re visiting these forums, don’t miss my blog post on Deer Hunting.
Lately I’ve been trying the Cavendish FlavourCrisp Spicy Straight Cut Fries. They seem to be going over really well with the kids. They love them.

I’m not deep-frying them, just baking them in the oven, Even so, they turn out real nice.
