Hey Steve,
I'm still working on "Spotted Pony." I haven't had the guts to record it on Garage Band yet, but it's coming along.

Steve,
Great sounds on Midnight Hitch Hike. May I ask who you used to Master?
Thanks for the tips on mastering by the way.

Hey Scott. I may have answered this already, but for the benefit of anyone who visits this page...that song was recorded directly to a Boss BR-600 and mixed and mastered internally on the BR. I was playing a good guitar (a Santa Cruz, I think) I borrowed from 12th Fret, a great guitar shop in Toronto.
This tune was requested by Boss as a demo to show off the acoustic guitar recording capabilities of the BR-600. I was noodling on the guitar on the couch one night (as most nights), and my wife liked the main lick. That encouraged me to complete the rest of the song for the recording session. We did book a studio, so we would have better acoustics than my living room. So, if you liked the sound, thanks. You can get great results using today's recording gear on your own. http://www.roland.com/products/en/BR-600/index.html

My CD mastering, as I mentioned previously, was done in Toronto at Inception Sound.

Hi Steve,

Swain and I were talking about you last time I was at the ANZA (only good things of course)...I guess I meet up with more pickers virtually these days than in person. Hope to bump into you one of these days.

Getting back into playing shape after a 9 month layoff. Arthtitis with rapid onset scared the bejesus out of me late last summer. Got to the point where I couldn't play for more than 20 minutes without experiencing severe pain, so I stopped playing altogether. After med testing, found out that I had a sensitivity to gluten, which could have been causing my symptoms. Have been 100% gluten free for 8 months now, and am back playing...It's like finding a long lost friend - "you don't know what you've got 'till it's gone".  Am working on adding more texture to my sound with crosspicking. Hard work, as it doesn't come naturally to me, but surely a labor of love.

Hey, great job on "Midnight Hitch Hike" nice composition, and well played.

Hope to bump into you at the ANZA (or wherever) sometime, I'll be getting up there more regularly after the turn of the year, God willing.
