First Voice of Rick’s Guitar

• May 13th, 2016

I wanted to give you an idea of how it sounds...  I am very pleased with it.  Not that I won't try to do even better, but this one finally starts to sound like what I've been trying to do all along!  I started out with no enhancements added to the sound-  just amplified so it will record properly.  And then:  I decided I had to put a little melody part in, and, of course, that just had to have some enhancement so you could hear it above the rhythm part.  Just some repetitive chords with a little noting on top!

I still have to take it apart again and do a little more fret dressing and sanding and, of course, finishing!  I'm probably going to try my hand at "French Polishing"...  My first try at that.  If it doesn't look like what I want it to, I'll just sand it off and apply lacquer as usual.

Don’t Think Twice

• October 26th, 2015

Willie and Merle are "old-timers" so they can say, "twyst" like some "old-timers" do...  Written by Bob Dylan a coupla' centuries ago.  Hokey? Sure...  Lame? Maybe...  Fun to play along?  You bet!  My part starts a little slow but I get warmed up after a while!  ;)

Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings with a quiet moody one... Dubbs adds a little bit more "Rawling-ish" part.

This Can’t Be Love

• December 10th, 2014

My humble contribution to the two month long cacophony, also known as the Xmas Hollowdays... Nothing says Xmas and headbanging elves quite like "Bad Jazz" played loud and long!

Chapter-A-Day introduced me to "The George Shearing Trio" who then provided the music. I have attempted to add both the head-banging and the elves.

Whenever You Come Around

• November 7th, 2014

From Willie's "Band of Brothers." A Vince Gill cover- nicely played! Willie's a fossil and getting a little shaky, but still has "it." I could have re-recorded until my part smoothed out a little but I feared I could lose some of the moments that just "happened" that I liked. Some songs/music make me "itch and scratch,"; they agitate me to plow through to the end. Some songs, like this one, make me want to savor, to bask in each note and phrase and feeling.

Iris Dement from the movie "True Grit." Humbling attempt... Loved the song as a child and love the piano work of this recording.

Out On The Weekend

• September 23rd, 2014

A cover of a Neil Young 'sad one.' Lee Ann Womack adds depth and feeling and her band is impeccable! My part has a little Chris Isaacs feel to it...
