One of our very own, Jacob Ranch Lipton, has a hidden talent. Many of you may not know but Mr. Lipton has a knack for guitar. His claim to fame came last year at Academic Magnet’s annual AP picnic where he preformed Scarlett Begonias and Fire on the Mountain with his band, Spanish Ladies. Mr. Lipton so graciously took time out of his busy day to talk to the Talon staff about how he discovered his musical identity.
When did you first start playing guitar?
“Uh, sophomore year I think”
Why did you start playing?
“Because I wanted to get ladies in college”
What tips do you have for getting good at guitar?
“Uh ooh, minimize your distractions, including ladies”
What do you attribute your guitar success to?
“Oh man, uh probably practicing all the time. Oh and also Mr. Grimshaw, papa bless”
Do you play any other instruments?
“I play a little bit of piano and Im starting to play some drums, oh and banjo”
What events have you played?
“I played the AP picnic last year and some house parties”
How do you find gigs, like the house parties you refer to?
“Just by knowing other musicians”
What is your favorite song to play?
“Hum, probably Im Different by Two Chains”
If you were to make a March playlist, what would be the top three songs on it?
(1) “Cross town Traffic” by Jimmy Hendricks (2)” Freeker” by the Speaker by Keller Williams (3)” The Force” by Lettuce
Similar to Mr. Lipton there are many Raptors among us with hidden talents. I am making it my personal mission to sift through them all and find the true Diamond in the Rough.
