Woody Guthrie @ 100 – DemocracyNow.org broadcast NOV 23rd 2012

“This Land Is Our Land” was written as an “alternative” to Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America” – who would have thought. Don’t miss out on some everlasting piece of American music history.

Excellent guitar care in Gatineau!

I would like 2 send out a “La Ola” of recognition 2 Stéphane Coulombe, who @ Adagio in Gatineau, repaired my Telecaster Slimline in the shortest of time and in a very knowledgeable way, when the day b4, staff of Steve’s Music Store Ottawa had assessed that same git and found “nothing wrong with it”.

Not only did Stéphane point out 2 me, that my strings were down 2 the core metal string and had the wound part gone where frets were touching and there4 buzzing on the frets, also he noticed after changing strings, that there was not enough/2 much pressure related 2 the spacers 4 G, B and high E strings – Stéphane took the washers out, ground down the 2 indented bases of those spacers and put everything back 2gether 2 the extend that the guitar plays better than ever and there is no more buzzing. All this happened within six hours of the early afternoon/evening, and I am so relieved 2 see that my problem is taken care of, that I got my baby back in better shape than ever and it also did not cost me an arm and a leg – so thank u very much, Stéphane and Adagio, 4 helping me out in such a supportive, knowledgeable and unpretentious way!

Find out more.
