Tuesday, October 3rd marks another installment in the “Extreme Acoustic” music series at the Musical Instrument Museum. This show is going to be a special one in that this is the first time we’ll have ensembles perform.  Please join myself, Seth Loveless and Tom Mein as we offer an evening of guitar music so good, it ought to be against the law!  Click this link to buy tickets.

The Best MacGyver Move Yet! http://www.billdutcher.com/2016/10/the-best-macgyver-move-yet/ Fri, 07 Oct 2016 17:07:45 +0000 http://www.billdutcher.com/?p=1747 I’d like to share what I believe is one of the most brilliant musician’s “hack” I’ve ever come across. As performing musicians, we all run across situations where equipment and or instruments fail and we need to improvise on the spot to remedy the situation. Probably one of the biggest fears for a guitarist is breaking a string at a gig and not having an extra set of strings, with you.

string-hack

This little trick comes from a friend of mine named, Chaz Mechenbier.  Chaz is a Columbus, Ohio based guitarist and truly is a a master of the instrument.  This trick only works if you’ve ever broken a string, between the nut and the tuning machine.  Tie the broken string, with a square knot, to another piece of string that goes to the tuning machine post.  Keep tightening until the knot cinches up and viola, you can at least get through the gig!  I hope this little trick helps saves your arse, when you need it!
