Q:what was the guitar on your youtube video of Not Fade Away?The preview for Trufire 50 low down rhythm lessons?
It was an Airline guitar from—I believe—the mid 1960s. It was unlabeled so I don’t know the model, but it was similar to some Kay Speed Demon guitars I’ve seen. Wonderful instrument. I played in on most of my recent ‘Portuguese Subtitles’ album. I sold the Airline last year, because I had more guitars than I needed.
5-star review for ‘Town & Country’!
You can read it here. I’m so glad folks are digging this record.
Record release — ‘Worry Later’
'Worry Later' introduces a new trio: Ben Goldberg (clarinet), Adam Levy(guitar), and Smith Dobson (drums). We got together to play some of our favorite Thelonious Monk tunes at Jeff Cressman’s place, and he recorded us. This is what I’m telling you.
On 20 May, 2014, you’ll be able to buy 'Worry Later' on iTunes, Amazon, and on this bandcamp page right here.
Q:Hey, my names is Dale Bennett and I was wondering if I could get your views on three of my songs that I've written please? I really need professional feedback for my dissertation and my hand in is very soon, so doing a bit of a last minute push! thanks for your time
I wish I had spare time to help you but things are busy as ever here. And, not to put too fine a point on it, but this is what I do for a living. If you’re interested in a lesson, drop me a line and we can arrange a time.
