Out of the hospital

I spent half of April in the hospital and am just recovering at home. Sorry I haven't responded to your posts but thank you all for your nice comments. I hope to get back to picking soon. I'm still a little weak and the stamina in the fingers just isn't there. I look forward to your comments and contributions. Thanks

Added K&K Western Mini Pickup to my Martin D18 GE and love it!

I just wanted to post about the pickup I had added to my Golden Era. The K&K pure western mini sound so natural and has a lot of output for a passive system. Ellie and the fine folks at Artisan Guitars in Franklin TN recommended this pup and installed it for me. I had a RBII in a Gibson J45 that was nice, but still had a tab bit of the under the saddle brittleness/crunch, way warmer than most, but I wanted to take it to the next level for a purer sound and I think i have it here. I played… Continue

Freja is soon coming home again

My daughter Freja has had a great year at ETSU. It was tough in the beginning, but she has slowly learned how things are organised at a University. The other day she found a clip of herself on Youtube. First week she arrived at the school, she had the chance to sing one song with the schools Bluegrass Band at a show in Kingsport. We didn't think we would have a chance to see that, but someone had filmed it and it showed up on Youtube. The school has a great band as you can see. Here is the… Continue
