This is my 1952 Martin 00-18 guitar I used at “The Mill” in Bristol last night. I played “Out Here Alone”, “Spellbound”, and an instrumental for the first set and then “MacPherson’s Rant” and “Big Plans” for the second round. All the folks at The Mill had a great time! There really are some great artists down there each Friday night from 7:30 – 9:30 PM. Come by and check it out!
Sweet little instrument! I decided not to use a flat pick on her (it has nylon strings). Mark Twain (Samuel Clements) use to play this model guitar back in the late 1800s. It was his guitar of choice, preferring it over other guitars. Clements is best known for his novels representing his characters “Tom Sawyer” and “Huckleberry Finn”. But, he toured around the country playing music also! Mark Twain’s “17″ is in a museum now and valued at over $15,000,000!
For those who haven’t visited my novel site here it is.
This link takes you to a website where you can view my late father’s and my favorite classic, Atlantic salmon fly. I dressed this fly about 25 years ago.
This is my Electronic Press Kit for my fourth album with Tate Music Group. There are three tracks under ‘Music’ that you can check out. The CD is called “Commercially Unacceptable”
This is a link to a salmon fly website where some of my classic, Atlantic salmon flies can be viewed and learned about.
I played some of my original songs and jammed with my friends down to this small venue on Wednesday, March 5th, 2014. I plan on going back on most Wednesdays from 7:00- 10:00PM to have a fun time entertaining fans. Great food and drinks available here, so come on down for a great treat. No cover charge!
This is a jam session using all Moog equipment
This is the third composition in a series of Moog synthesizer and Moog guitar works. My recordings for this series have been an experiment in self-hypnosis. The Moog equipment lends itself to actually hint of voices in the background. Performing this kind of music is very relaxing and hypnotic. So, if you’re not afraid of trading some of your rational thoughts for a fun ride, click on the link and away we go!
Another Moog equipment experiment using a “Little Phatty” Stage II synthesizer, a Moog E1 electric guitar played through a series of four Mooger Foogers. Much content comes from working with Moog equipment. I really enjoy it!
