Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I've played guitar since I was 11. Like many my age, I learned on the hits of the Folk/Rock era. Musical heros were the usual suspects: James Taylor, Gordon Lightfoot, Paul Simon, Jim Croce, Don McLean, CSN, ...you know the stuff.

Then I heard John Hartford and Tony Rice. My musical world changed forever.

I listen to everything and play as wide a range of music as I listen to. I flatpick fiddle tunes (and have lately taken to arranging them for fingerstyle), play jazz standards, and still have a fond affection for that folk rock that started it all.

It's Code, Not Cliché

It’s Code, Not Cliché



Chuck, the owner of the local Ace Hardware, has made a practice of tapping a great, knowledgeable but inexpensive workforce -- retired old guys.



One day after I had spent about forty minutes getting one of the old guys to cut me 50 feet of 1/16" cable, Chuck approached me in the aisle as I headed toward the checkout. He wanted to know if the service I got from the old guy was OK.



"You know, Ed's 88." he said, "I like the idea of these guys… Continue

My New Red Bear

Got my new Red Bear in yesterday's mail. It's got a wonderful feel and though I don't feel the "grips", it's better having them where they are than up as high as they used to be. The roundness of this "F" shape seems to make a smoother sound than the "C" I've been playing with lately. The "C" may be slightly louder, being pointier as it is, but the new "F" seems to bring out fewer extraneous noises. I like a completely rigid pick, so I was surprised… Continue

Hi John,
Thanks for your comment. I'm glad that you enjoy "Vermont". I played it last night on a gig with a great vocalist, Bill Robinson.
I'll have to listen to the recording with Don again and get back to you with a more detailed answer...but the short version is that I literally do not have a clue what I am going to play before I play it! I approach it from a "jazz piano" perspective. It's a concept on which I have worked very hard over the years by listening, studying, gigging and experimenting combined with the opportunity of having studied with some wonderful people!
But I will get back to you with some spec's.
Thanks again and Happy Holidays!
John C
