“Tuesday’s Gone” is the second track on Lynyrd Skynyrd’s first album, “(pronounced ‘lĕh-‘nérd ‘skin-‘nérd)”. One of the band’s most popular songs, its relaxing pace and serenading guitars have made it a fan staple. The lyrics are band frontman Ronnie Van Zant’s realization that his normal life is finished forever with the band’s new MCA/Sounds of the South record deal. “Tuesday,” representing life as it was, is gone with the wind. The song is similar in mood to the band’s signature tune “Free Bird”. Once in an 1975 radio interview a caller asked Allen Collins, the song’s co writer what his favorite Lynyrd Skynyrd song was and Allen answered “Tuesday’s Gone”. Al Kooper adds upfront Mellotron string sounds to the chorus of the song. It is one of a few Lynyrd Skynyrd songs that Bob Burns the original founding member and drummer did not play on. Atlanta Rhythm Section’s drummer Robert Nix played on the studio version. Bob Burns however can be heard playing on the demo version from the same session.

Lynyrd Skynyrd is an American rock band best known for popularizing the southern hard-rock genre during the 1970s. Originally formed in 1964 as My Backyard in Jacksonville, Florida, the band used various names such as The Noble Five and One Percent, before coming up with Lynyrd Skynyrd in 1969. The band rose to worldwide recognition on the basis of its live performances and signature tunes “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Free Bird”. At the peak of their success, three members died in an airplane crash in 1977, putting an abrupt end to the band’s most popular incarnation.

The surviving band members re-formed in 1987 for a reunion tour with lead vocalist Johnny Van Zant, the younger brother of lead singer and founder Ronnie Van Zant. The re-formed band continues to tour and record with co-founding member Gary Rossington and core members Johnny Van Zant, along with guitarist Rickey Medlocke, who recorded with the band for a short time in the early 1970s. Drummer Michael Cartellone has recorded and toured with the band since 1999. Lynyrd Skynyrd was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 13, 2006.

Taylor Acoustic Guitar Truss Rod Adjustment – 314ce-N

A quality guitar usually has the truss rod adjusted at the factory to the manufacturers’ specifications, but if you change the gauge of strings you use or if the weather or humidity has changed, or if you just have a particular preference in your playing style, you may want to adjust the truss rod, even on a new guitar.

A truss rod is an adjustable steel rod inside the neck of the guitar that can be adjusted by loosening or tightening a nut at either the peghead or through the soundhole of the guitar.

Your truss rod may need adjusting if the neck of your guitar has too much or too little upbow or backbow.

Tightening the truss rod adjusment nut (clockwise) will lower the action (distance between the strings and fretboard); loosening the nut allows the neck to relax into an upbow and will increase the action. Controlled upbow is known as relief.

2 main reasons your truss rod needs adjusting:

1. There’s a noticeable change in the action; the height of the strings over the frets has become either too high or too low. The most common scenario is that the strings get higher as the neck upbows from the string pull.

2. Some strings buzz on the frets between the nut and the fifth fret. This indicates that the neck is either too straight or it is backbowed from the truss rod’s slow, constant pressure over time.

This truss rod adjustment demonstration is done on a Taylor 314-ce, nylon string acoustic guitar. The tool used is a truss rod adjustment tool that has a 1/4″ nut driver on one end, and a phillips screwdriver on the other end. It costs about three dollars and can be found online or at your local music store.

Wondering what year your Taylor guitar was made? The new Taylor 10-digit serial number that started on November 2, 2009, identifies the factory of production, year, date and the assigned number of the guitar on that day’s production schedule. Watch the video for the full explanation.

From 1993 until the end of 1999, each Taylor guitar featured a nine-digit serial number that precisely pinpoints when work was begun on that guitar. As of 2000, the serial number expanded to 11 digits to accommodate the four-digit year designation. Reading left to right, the first two digits (or four starting in 2000) represent the year; the second pair of digits represent the month; and the third pair of digits represents the calendar day that work was begun. The seventh digit is a series code number – 0 for 300 or 400 Series, 1 for 500 thru Presentation Series, 2 for 200 Series, 3 for Baby and Big Baby Series, 5 for T5, 7 for Nylon Series, 8 for 100 Series, and 9 for SolidBody Series. The last two digits denote the guitar’s position in that day’s production sequence. For models older than 1993, please refer to the chart below.

SERIAL NUMBERS YEAR
[didn’t use serial numbers!] 1974
10109 to 10146 1975

Paper Towns is an upcoming American romantic mystery film, directed by Jake Schreier based on the 2008 novel of the same name by John Green. The film is written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, the same team that wrote Green’s first book film adaption. The film will star Nat Wolff, who also starred in The Fault in Our Stars, Cara Delevingne, Justice Smith, Austin Abrams, Halston Sage and Jaz Sinclair. It is set to be released on July 24, 2015 in the United States by 20th Century Fox. The trailer of the film was released on 19 March 2015.

Paper Towns is the third young adult novel written by John Green. It was published on October 16, 2008 by Dutton Books. It debuted at number 5 on the New York Times bestseller list for children’s books and was awarded the 2009 Edgar Award for best young-adult novel.

Paper Towns takes place in and around a fictional subdivision called Jefferson Park, located in Orlando, Florida. The novel focuses on the narrator and protagonist, Quentin “Q” Jacobsen, and his neighbor, Margo Roth Spiegelman. As young children, Quentin and Margo one day discover the corpse of Robert Joyner, a divorced man who has committed suicide, in the park. Following this incident, the novel flashes forward to present-day Quentin and Margo, who are now high school students that have grown apart from each other. However, a month before their high school graduation, Margo shows up at Quentin’s bedroom window dressed like a ninja in the middle of the night. She has devised a revenge mission on a group of people who she feels have hurt her over the course of her high school career. The mission has eleven parts to it. Margo needs someone and more importantly, a car, to help her complete her mission. So, she convinces Quentin to sneak out and help her seek revenge.
