SRV's Smoothest Guitar Transition, Ever.

When Stevie Ray Vaughan broke a string in the middle of a song, his guitar tech Rene Martinez played his role perfectly!Stevies guitar technician for many years, today Rene is John Mayer's guitar technician.

The two worked perfectly to make this moment happen, and the fans were none the wiser! It has the beauty and speed of a Nascar Pitcrew!

RENE:

  1. Ran out with a guitar
  2. Handed it to SRV
  3. Attached the strap locks.

SVR:

  1. Unplugged the guitar (keeping hold of the chord).
  2. Unplugged both strap locks (while still palming the chord).
  3. Grabbed the guitar, rotated it into the right position.
  4. Plugged the chord back in.
  5. Starts playing again without a strap, holding it up for the tech with his right forearm and left wrist.
  6. All of the above while singing.

All it takes is cardboard, guitar strings, 100+ pounds of pressure and an impossible know-how on building with the left over boxes you'll have after the holidays.

Joplin Guitarist Regrets Leaving Band

Who could forget Janis Joplin’s parting from Big Brother and the Holding Company in December 1968?  Joplin wasn’t happy with the band due to its musical direction as well as the commitment of certain members.

View post on imgur.com

Less than a month after leaving the band, she formed The Kozmic Blues Band which featured guitarist Sam Andrew from Big Brother as well. “It was a really stupid decision, but she talked me into it,” Andrew told Music Radar in 2012. “I wish I had been stronger and said no.”  According to Andrew, because of drugs, and just the timing in general, life was a little crazy after leaving Big Brother. Joplin eventually fired Andrew from The Kozmic Blues Band.
