About 20 years ago while working at a guitar store, a guy sold us his stuff, and in the case was a piece of weirdness. A small black plastic box called the "Geraci Keetaar Converter" It has six keys, with corresponding felt tipped hammers below, and is mean to be mounted to the top, and over the neck of the guitar, and allow you to use the hammers to sound the strings instead of your fingers or a pick. Tried it once, and it was sort of a neat effect. The only other info is it says "Norwood Company, Morton Grove IL. Patent Pending" I have never been able to find any info on this thing, nor the company. Has anyone even HEARD of this particular piece of wonderful weirdness?
Hi mefites: Possibly the whitest man in the world here currently building a bonfire out of all his Fender basses and tossing his standup on top. Anyone know who played bass on Honey Cone's "Want Ads?". I'm guessing James Jamerson, who probably walked in and did it in one take and yawned and said anything else? Sort of a throwaway tune I guess, but Jebus....guys just walk into a a studio and do that? Sorry for the earworm, but I just want to shake the guy's hand so I can count his damned fingers.
