In this episode we spotlight an iconic cowboy guitar that has DeArmond single-coils and we hear it through an early ’60s blonde head piggybacked on an unusual 1x15 cab.

Think you know Gretsches? Gruhn Guitars’ Lloyd Nicely will teach you a thing or two in this episode of A&A spotlighting a ’57 6120 with DeArmond single-coils and a weird detachable budget vibrato piece once offered to customers who couldn’t afford the Bigsby upgrade. And we get to hear it all through an early ’60s blonde Bassman piggybacked on an unusual 1x15 cab.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
