  • I think my next gear purchase down the road will be

    A banjo.

    Yes, don't laugh. just yet.



    I'm seriously considering it. Wintertime is coming and I just might pull the stings on one.

    A Deering Sierra, might be just what I need.

        The Boss Loopers are the most complicated Looper ever made. There manuals are bad too. Lots of fun. You'll find help in the Boss/ Roland user group on line.

              I'm not a nashville country guy myself and never listen to what I call Nashville Pop.
              However I like me some rootys bluegrass stuff.

              I have been playing mandolin for probably 30 years, My quest for the best mandolin tones have been cured.

              I like twangy telecasters to through a deluxe of bassman, or cranked through a Marshall.

                My next purchase will probably be some kind of cheap, used Les Paul, SG, or some kind of copy.I've always played Strats and superstrats, but lately I've been jonesin' for something more classic rockish.
                It's not about money or popularity , although some money would be nice.

                      I'll do a 5 stringer, cause I like the droning sound of the 5 string.

                      A women named Valerie June played at the fresh grass fest about 3 years ago I was standing in court yard D drinking a beer at the festival. There was hardly soul in court yard D, she drew me in like a magnet to steel. buy the second song there was barely standing room. Sometime you t hit your audience hard, sometime hit em with a softly.


                      Who doesn't dig some Cam Cooke played on banjo.


                      Sometimes she played a Martin 0015.




                      Her new cd is more rocking.

                              Buck Trent is right up there with Jimi Hendrix as far as I'm concerned.
