Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I am a NW Wood Carving artist focusing on native style mask and have been living on my 52" classic wood trawler "Allegra"which serves as both my home and studio/shop. I spend my Winters in the San Juan Islands and travel to SE Alaska each summer where i sell my carvings and preform folk/ballads on charter boats that travel through the area. I have a web site showing my work as well as ships log with photos.
At 50 years old i decided to devote as much time as possible doing what i truly love and have gotten away with it for the last 10 years. As far as I know we only go this way once. What a true waste to do any thing else.
I'll have to take a look at "amazing slowdowner". I have used the slow down feature of Windows Media Player and have found that to be very useful. As for Mr. Blake, he really seems to know how to get the most out of each note. I find his playing to be very full sounding, I think because he does a lot of chord based stuff and caries a lot of ringing tone through his playing, if you've learned some his licks you know a lot more about that. For myself after hacking along on my own for many years and using the guitar mainly as accompaniment for singing for the last year or so I have been taking lessons from a great player here in Calgary, Steve Fisher (www.stevefishermusic.ca) working on a more straight ahead type of flat picking, if you know what I mean.
tank you for the comment about my videos. I visit your site, and I like very much your works an your style of life. I also have a boat ( a little plothouse) and i spent my free time (i have a fishing shop) going fishing in adriatic sea or doing little sea travels. My guitar is an ovation celebrity cc24 koa top, a cheap but good one.
See you soon and "Good wind".

"Just added the Taylor K22e to my collection. Physically, it is the most beautiful guitar that I have ever seen. The lovely KOA and maple combinations are literally breathtaking. The KOA and boxwood ocean vine inlay on the fret board is striking, as…"
"Where does the time go? I've come to accept the physical limitations which come with age, but mine are of a degree which interfere with my ability to play for more than a couple of hours per day. It's disheartening, but I simply do the…"
