Hi Letha, thanks for the nice words! I use small nuts to keep the ball end from eating into the wood. Simply thread the string through the nut and then onto the guitar. Should work for your guitars as well. No need to glue them on or anything. Just makes it a bit more stable. On the top end i use a string ferrule. As far as price goes, I price mine just slightly higher, but as always let me know if I can help with anything.
Sbtle or subdued I've rarely been accused of :-). The TVZ tribute album should be showing up here on CBN either tonight or tomorrow. Dan Sleep was downloading and checking it within the last hour, and I've also contacted the folks at MyTexasMusic.com so they can download it and carry it, too. I think y'all are gonna enjoy it.
Woo Hoo! Someone else recorded Tecumseh Valley for the TVZ tribute (hafta look up who), but their recording is really rough, the sound quality is not what it could be, and it can't be improved much with software tweaking. I prefer your version. Can you upload it to the TVZ Discussion as an mp3? There's a link that appears at the bottom left called Upload Files, once you Reply to another Reply in the Discussion, where you can attach an mp3 file. As you can see from the Comments on that Discussion, the guys are excited to have you join us!
Wow, I love your version of The Weight! You have have such an amazingly soulful voice, I could listen you sing for hours. I'm so pleased to hear you might be joining us boys on the Townes Van Zandt project, it needs a woman's touch.
Are you talking about The Weight, as recorded by Levon Helm and The Band? One of my fave songs of all time! Only problem is, if that's the one, is that we are only doing TVZ - written songs ( with the exception of Two Hands) on the tribute album. But I'll be happy to give it a listen. As far as recording goes, you can make it plain and simple, or lush and "overproduced," however it sounds good to you, many tracks and overdubs as you want.
Woo Hoo! We gotcha! No vid necessary, make a recording, upload it to the TVZ Discussion. I've already recorded If I Needed You, but feel free to do your version; I'm trying to make this as open and easy for everyone as possible. I don't remember if anyone has done Rex's Blues, No Place To Fall, Be Here To Love Me - there's loads of choices. Please read through the thread to see what's been submitted already. Only real requirement is to use a CBG somewhere on the recording, and make the song your own. Personally, I'd like to hear a woman's take on Kathleen, or (S)He Came And (S)He Touched Me, but pick something that really speaks to you. Thank you so very much for agreeing to do this!
