For those interested in the authorized Tony Rice bio, Still Inside... Lotsa work went into this--I know all involved are greatly relieved that it's finally out there. I hope everyone enjoys the book.
Tony, Caroline Wright and I will be at Merlefest April 29-May 2 to sign books. This may be the only chance to get Tony and both authors together to sign since Caroline lives in Hawaii and isn't here very often.
See you there,

Matt Stevens (Guitars/Loops/) - Dolls House Live On Ustream 2009
This is a live version of my song Dolls House from the album Echo. Its from the run of ustream concerts streamed on the internet last year. Its twice the length of the original version and has more guitar solos than the whole of my new album!…
Matt Stevens (Guitars/Loops/Whammy Pedal/Ebow) - 8.19 Live On Ustream 2009
This is a live version of my song 8.19 which is going to be on my second album which is called Ghost and is out later in the year. The “synth” type noise is an ebow run through a whammy pedal. Its from the run of ustream concerts streamed on the internet last year. Its quite a Smiths/Fripp type track.…
A few weeks ago I thought We'd try something - an online venue based around a "ning" network. So I posted out to some of our friends to see what would happen.
It's been great really - friendships have been made and in a very short time I think its become a remarkable community which I am very proud to be part of. Some great collaborative projects have happened and some brilliant points have been made… Continue

Matt Stevens (Guitars) - Spencer Park(Norwich Bootleg) Live 08
This is a live version of my song Spencer Park - its an audience recording from a gig I did in Norwich a couple of years ago - the quality of the recording isn’t great - one mic in the audience but I’ve cleaned it up as best i can. I was playing in a cafe bar - you can really hear the audience moving around. I like it that you can hear my pedals clicking and the glasses of the audience. As it… Continue

Found a solution to an often mentioned problem when having installed a piezo type bridge plate pickup transducer. The consensus of several Internet responders who have done this is that while the sound from strings 2 through 6 is good, the high e-string is way too quiet with no real ring, sustain, etc. Some have suggested moving the transducer for that string away from a brace, Adding a 4th transducer, a not so easy job, etc.I recently installed a JJB pickup (jjbelectronics) in a 40 year old…See More
I play two-thirds of a guitar. I have some wrist issues with fretting the 6th string. I enjoy finger picking but have been an avid follower of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for about 6 years. I find Dan Huckabee's beginners arrangements great for the bari-uke. I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
