There is a great video of Harry Connick Jr. Playing in France where the soulless clapping is going on, and he actually turns the beat around to make the claps on 2 and 4. It was fantastic!

It thrilled me to read that the only parts overdubbed were Mike's. As much of a dream band as you could want.

This type of problem is exacerbated by lighting dimmers and proximity to things like computers and neon signs. It could be that your solar panel are increasing the noise.

Cool, the Loar era was 1920-24, so my L-1 is from that era too. Mike, I can't believe you don't play guitar anymore! I'm sure you'll come back to it someday.

Usually the blues in that context is simply a phrase or two, then a resolution back to the harmony of the tune. Any more than that and it loses its effect. Listen to the great soul singers, it's the ...
