I played with Scott Heard, and John Roth(Winger) in the Band FireChoir in Memphis. He was a great player and a cool guy. Anyone know what happened to him?

I went on line and listened to some of these guys.
My thoughts?
1. Musically self absorbed.
2. Gonna make it without the music industry. I don't think so.
3. Guitar licks are fast but lame. A fast trip to nowhere.
4. The song I heard was an old deep purple space truckin ripoff.
5. Probably very nice people following a dream but it ain't happening.
6. Claim to be futuristic in their style yet most of their stuff is 80's based.
7. Vocals were horrible. Get a decent singer.
8. Keep the day jobs and don't borrow againt your 401k to buy equipment.
thank you terry you make the rest of us look even better...so there is use for a guitar abortionist like you!..

wow!...I can play that many notes too...except i manage to keep in key....and sometimes being a good guitarist is knowing when NOT to play...you serve a useful purpose though...because without crappy guitar players...there wouldn't be any good ones either.

I saw Jay Shepherd play a classical guitar recital October last year. One of the best things I ever saw in this town. Keep it up, man!

I show those lame Cooksey vids and clips to all my guitar students on how NOT to play... It's literally a treasure trove of things not to do! Lol

First let me say I'm humbled that someone mentioned my name on here again. Glad to notice people are liking my classical guitar playing as of late. It's a real honor to be associated with the countless great guitarists in jboro.

Yes, one of my bands has been playing The Office on Marketplace! It's a great place with great service, food, and a good drink selection. Love playing darts there too!

In other regards, is this Cooksey guy for real or is this some big long running joke? I'm kinda confused. Someone remind who this guy is. He sounds... how should I say this??? Interesting.
I think these talks of who is the best guitarist in Jonesboro are a waste of time in a public forum. There are so many wonderful different players who play different types of music. This kind of talk really serves little purpose.

I say we start having a monthly guitar meeting in which we try and round up as many players from the area that we can, and take turns or collaborate and show each other the diversities of our skills. I bet we could do it at public venue and make it a great free event to the local guitarists. Maybe this type of activity would lead to more productive discussions about guitar and guitarists.

Interested in your thoughts, and I'd be glad to schedule the first few meetings, provide funding, and publicize and advertise it until we get a base.
