Third Man Records Announces Online Garage Sale

Jack White's record label will be selling guitars, amplifiers, personal items, stage equipment and other one-of-a-kind items from the TMR’s archives and JW's musical career and collection from Wednesday August 26 to Sunday August 30.

New York, NY (August 19, 2020) -- Third Man Records and Jack White are excited to announce an online auction featuring guitars, amplifiers, personal items, stage equipment and other one-of-a-kind items from the label’s archives and Jack White’s musical career and collection. Third Man Records took the opportunity presented by the necessity of social distancing to comb through the storage vaults and hidden closets at their headquarters and pulled the best of their infrequently used studio gear, furniture, and more, which they hope will be given new life at their next homes. The auction will take place via Online Nashville Auctions from Wednesday, August 26 at 9am CST to Sunday, August 30 at 9pm CST. A portion of proceeds will go to benefit the John Peel Centre, Gideon's Army, and the Detroit Phoenix Center.

Some of the many items on offer include stage monitor covers and pedalboards used on tour by The White Stripes, drum sets used in the iconic “Hardest Button To Button” video, guitars from Jack White’s personal collection, clothing used in an array of video shoots, and a wide variety of other curios and studio and stage equipment. All items come directly from Third Man Records and have a certificate of authenticity. Visitors must register an account to bid, and bids of $1,000 or above will be approved by an auction house.

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.
