EPIPHONE

Epiphone has a new model guitar out.   Go here to see it.  It looks a lot like a vintage Gibson parlor guitar.

The Summer has been great.  I’ve learned a lot of new stuff and I hope you have, too.  As Fall approaches, get ready for those fireside jam sessions and enjoy yourself!

GREAT STUDENTS, GREAT POSTER

Wow, it’s been too long.  I have been extremely busy teaching and working with Missing Daybreak.   I am proud to say I have some very impressive and dedicated students who are working very hard.  There is always room for more, though!

My good friend and band mate, JPH, found a neat poster I want to share with you.  Too bad it’s out of print.

Hope everyone is looking forward to Spring and playing their instruments daily.

He currently holds the Guinness World Records title as the fastest guitar player in the world, playing The Flight of the Bumblebee by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov at 320 beats per minute.

REFLECTING ON LES PAUL

This interview with Les Paul in 1992 is a treasure and should make every guitar player who walks into a music store humbled at the array of “toys” he provided us. He glided over his adversities with the same grace he played guitar and that is a gift to us all.

CHECKING OUT SOME BANJOS AT WILDWOOD MUSIC

Yesterday, we took a short trip up to Coschocton, Ohio, to visit Wildwood Music.  I wanted to check out some Deering banjos since I have played them before and was impressed.  I was looking for something a little less expensive than my current banjo so I can use it for instruction at the shop.

We had a lot of fun browsing all the guitars, banjos and auto harps.   Don and Marty were very gracious and had some great stories from their trip to Elkins, West Virginia.  Missing Daybreak also has some good stories from their visit to  Elkins.  In fact, Something Blue was written there while the Cheat River was rising one night.  Check out WildwoodMusic
