Flatpickin’ Molly

Something about this video of Molly Tuttle playing an old Martin guitar caught my eye, and I felt the urge to play along.

Check out the video below.

 

Juanjo Domínguez (1951-2019)

If you’re not familiar with Juanjo Domíguez, Argentine guitarist, then check him out. Below the digital painting I did of Maestro Juanjo on an iPad using Sketch Club, I’ve inserted a YouTube video of him accompanying Diego el Cigala and Andrés Calamaro performing Los Hermanos by Atahualpa Yupanqi. Enjoy!
I’m adding another YouTube link that perhaps better illustrates Maestro Juanjo’s playing (along side one of my favorite singers, Diego el Cigala): click here to watch Soledad.

How could the views be so different?

What explains the perceptual and conceptual polarization? I came up with the following explanation, a variation on an earlier explanation.

The earlier explanation:

Words escape me.

Standard Lobotomy: A 15 Sec. Animation

When we as Americans speak of our crumbling infrastructure, we focus on rusty bridges and other examples of tangible decay and neglect, and we tend to overlook the undesirable, long-term, and initially intangible effects on human capital precipitated by the steady erosion over time of investment in and support for public education.
