I’ve been doing a Virtual Open Mic night with my students every other week, frequently featuring various guest performers. Once a month, we do an event called the Fellowship of the Clefs (also nicknamed the East Coast Gun Club.)
The Fellowship gets together and tells the stories of our instruments and how we found them….or sometimes how they found us. We’ve had homemade project guitars, instruments handed down through generations of families, our favorite accessories, and guitars that got someone through a rough patch. It’s been a great social event for folks to exchange the stories behind their favorite pieces of gear.
One of my submissions was this video about my heavily modded Ibanez Ashula hybrid fretted/fretless (nicknamed the Space Bass).
