A Lichty for Richard Schein
It is always fun for us to see who will show up at Lichty Guitars next to visit the shop and to play whatever we may have on hand, available for sale. We recently had the complete pleasure of meeting Nancy and Rick, two greats folks who were traveling through our area on a road-trip adventure. They learned about Lichty Guitars when they picked up a copy of The Laurel of Asheville and read the recent feature article. – Many thanks to The Laurel!
It was obvious when we heard Rick play that he was a serious guitarist and we learned that he has graced many a stage (nationally and internationally) with a guitar in hand. His touring career has included playing alongside Mitch Ryder in the heyday. We pulled up some of the old concerts (thanks the miracle of YouTube) and thought it would be fun to share.
Here are two classic Mitch Ryder shows with Rick blazing on Electric Guitar:
Mitch Ryder – Tough Kids, Rockpalast, 1979
Mitch Ryder, Ain’t Nobody White Can Sing the Blues, Rockpalast, 1979
Back to Lichty Guitars studio: After playing all of the guitars we had on hand, Rick chose a Cocobolo Dreadnought. That guitar, in particular, seemed to really speak to Rick. That is often the way it goes – one instrument over another has just the right vibe for just the right person. It was a thrill to hear Rick play and that he loved the guitars and is now a proud Lichty owner is even better!
