Short & REAL Sweet!
It's taken me five hours to write what was supposed to be a quick and dirty blog; I won't even comment on what took me so long. Suffice it to say that there's a couple of real good blues tunes coming. So, let's cut to the chase:
The "Dulcimerica" Holy Grail!
People have been asking for an episode guide to "Dulcimerica" for a long time, but that was well after I'd amassed so many videos that the task just seemed daunting as all get-out. Then, Michael Goldston, one of my supporters on Patreon, did a quick spreadsheet for the HD episodes on the feed and I asked him if he'd tackle all 300 episodes. He agreed and now, we have an episode guide that will be updated with each new episode. I'm posting the DropBox link here - it will update with each new video.
Info includes episode number and title, description and, in some cases, location and event. It's really nice to have something like this for folks searching for specific content and I'll also post the link on Dulcimerica.com and in the descriptions for the videos beginning with #301. (I'll take some time adding them to the previous 300. It's a low priority at this point.) Huge thanks to Michael for stepping up and making it easier for everyone who loves "Dulcimerica"!
The AutoBass Pro
For those not familiar with AutoBass, check out the details on my Endorsement page. Creator Dave Senften asked me to give him some feedback on what I thought of the original design and, after playing it some, talking with him in person and e-mailing some observations later, he's come up with a model that he's calling the AutoBass Pro. It's got a bit more functionality than the flagship line of AutoBass Mini instruments and I can't wait to plug it in and take it for a test drive! Be watching for a "Dulcimerica" episode that introduces the instrument and how much fun, and educational, it is!
Ready To Ship!
"Return Of Live At Old Songs" and "Live From Ditty TV" are sitting here in boxes in the studio, getting packed up and shipped out tomorrow! If you've been waiting for release day to get your copy; that day has arrived. Head over to my CD page and grab yourself some new live music from yours truly!
I'll be back at the Homosassa Riverside Resort and Seagrass Waterfront Resort this week; be sure to check my schedule for showtimes and locations. I love playing on the Homosassa River and folks who come to see me there love it too. If you haven't made the trip, be careful, I know many who have come out for a show and ended up buying property there. It's that cool.
That's all for now, gotta lot of production work and dorking around with new gear to do. And, oh yeah, some blues to scream. Catch you on the flip-flop!
