My New Years Eve Gig 2022 - Ask Zac 106

April 17, 2020

I did another run of shows with the Paul Bogart Band, including a New Year's Eve show in Wichita, Kansas. This run had me playing with Paul's regular guitarist, Nick Palmer, instead of filling in for him, which necessitated me taking a different approach to the set. In this video, I show how I learned different guitar parts and used my Mandolin, and Danelectro Bass 6 to come up with complementary parts. To give a concrete example, I play the parts and solos I played on "All That Cowboy Jazz" on my Breedlove Mandolin. There is also a bit of live footage of me playing at the end of the video.
