"Indeed pick, I'm a big fan of his and I'm not sure how it happened! I've even covered one of his songs - We Are the Miners. I think the unique, slightly odd, off beat style of his had a strange appeal to me."

Been Away

Posted on August 30, 2015 at 8:10am 14 Comments

I've kind of been away from these pages and from making instruments for the last month or so. Lots of other demands on my time from other folks and other responsibilities. I've missed it! Now that summer's winding down and the firewood pile is building up I plan to get back to doing what I love - making and playing these things. I went to the PA CBG Fest this weekend and feel rejuvenated. Got to play on the open mic stage and meet a bunch of talented people. It was great to talk to J.Rob…

Off To Clifftop

Posted on July 24, 2014 at 9:16am 1 Comment

Hey everyone, I'll be heading to the Appalachian String Band Festival (Clifftop, WV) soon and gone for a week. This American roots music festival leans heavily toward traditional fiddle and banjo tunes but there are also groups of blues, cajun and New Orleans brass band folks there as well - all acoustic music. One thing I love about this festival is that the overwhelming majority of the 3,000 + people who attend play music at various levels. There are a few who just come to listen but it's…

I clicked on the post tab, I was able to post it there under performance. I labeled it video link for the 2x4 challenge. Hope you can find it. Let me know. This Tuesday I am going over to my neighbors, he is s in a bluegrass band and the fiddle player will be there. So I should be able to make a second video. Thanks for you help

Jim hi, I'm still working on my starter kit «How can I play...» for cbg newbies: after a chapter «Playing scales with chords» I'm working on one about «Playing chords with common chord progressions». I like the kind of songs you play on your videos while they aren't those I'm used to liste to. May I ask you to check my list with common chord progressions to add one or another song from your play list? Have a good time, Moritz.
