  • Happy Cake

    Here's a clip of my tune Happy Cake. Just realized I forgot to take the Snark off

    Wow. Loved the funky tone you got by the bridge. And that was some impressive upper-fret playing on your 12-fretter. Oh, and nice music too.

        Dayum, that was gorgeous! Killer groove, and I never knew where it was going. I started to bust out in "guitar face" just listening to it.

        Just went on Amazon and ordered Slow Moving Dog. Noticed it's on iTunes as well, but I'm a cranky old man who prefers to have CDs.

          Beautiful, Eric. Very accomplished guitar work. Beautiful guitar too, BTW.

          Forgive me, but I couldn't help having flashbacks of Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine".

              Damn....I liked that A LOT! Knockwood nailed it...I never knew where it was going either, but everywhere it went sounded new and compelling! Very 'bitey/edgy' sound from the guitar and awesome wonky wobbly notes/bends (you can probably see I've been studying up on technical guitar terms.. )

              Bravo!

                Excellent, Eric, but I like your trio version of Happy Cake even better...the three of you sound so good together!

                In the event you three get the urge for a "Live" album, ya gotta include this!

                    Eric, I shared some of the trio videos over at Mandolin Cafe, where the three of y'all have SERIOUS fans, and was asked:

                    - what mics?
                    - what mixer, what amp, what speakers?
                    - recording post mixer?
                    - recording what came out of the speakers?
                    - post recording mixing?
                    - pre recording mixing?
                    - regarding the previous two questions: what, how and how much?

                    Told them I'd ask ya.

                      Damn Eric - that was cool.

                      Very funky - yellow shoes funky.

                      For the record, I have your trio CD - but I prefer your solo stuff. You are like Prince - you don't need the Revolution.

                      Try flipping that Snark on the other side of the headstock - it doesn't stick out as bad and it's actually easier to see IMO. The Snark people should be paying you.

                        Seriously, though, where is the cake? I got all excited and ****************, and grabbed a big glass of milk, and then hit Play and there's just some dude playing guitar. No cake. Total bait and switch scam, man.

                        I was tricked.

                            I'm still some trio gigs around town, with drums instead of mando, but I have a renewed focus on solo guitar for the next few years. In june I have my first solo guitar record in six years coming out. It's going to be called A Different Kind Of Blue. I've arranged the whole Kind Of Blue record for solo guitar. So I'm looking forward to that.

                            Thanks again
