How's Life?

Hello players. Jordan here. I'm a 28 year old acoustic artist currently residing in the "City of Roses" Portland, OR. I'm originally from West Michigan but I decided to move out West to try my hand at making a living with my music. Or at least make an effort to pursue my delusions of grandeur with a steadfast drive and open heart. I've been playing for about 11 years but it's only been within the last 5 that I've taken a more serious approach to theory and general musicianship.

 

 

 

 

I've been in Portland for a few months and have had some great experiences with like-minded musicians and am always craving more and more good vibes and people with a passion for songwriting.  I suppose I'm interested in using this account to meet some more Portland jammers.

 

But don't hesitate to make contact if you aren't from Portland! 

 

 

 

 

It doesn't matter where you are from.  If you have a passion for your art I would love to hear from you.  Feel free to add me and share your thoughts, music, and whatever else you wish to express. I'm very excited to discuss techniques, give and take advice, and just continue to evolve as an acoustic artist.  Make contact!  :)

 

Love and light,

Jordan Robidoux

"I like the ragged quality.   It fits the subject.  The guitar playing is especially good.   Had a hard time hearing the lyrics.  Maybe you could post them?"

Jordan,

 

Thanks for visiting my page and checking out my stuff! I've been playing a long time and improvise a lot, as I am inspired sorta! I'm glad you like what you heard.

 

Last Good Cowboy, has a story behind it. My younger brother was in a car accident and broke his neck, had surgery, and is not paralyzed, thank goodness. But while he was in the hospital bed they had a special one for him as he couldn't move much. So the bed pommeled him with percussions to clear out his lungs. His one nurse called it his Pony ride. One night he was writing out words for us as he could not talk with a respirator, and he spelled out "Last good cowboy," about his bed percussions.

 

And I wrote the song with a little help from him and my wife adding a couple ideas for the lyrics as I wrote them and told them about it.

 

His health is much better now and he gets around with crutches. But he is still the Last Good Cowboy to me!

 

Thanks again for the listen!

 

Kirk

Thanks for the invite! I live on Gun Lake, and am quite a bit older than you. I play with The Conklin Ceili Band (Irish/American) and am on the Grammy nominated "Singing Through The Hard Times" CD. I hope we make some music together sometime.

Sorry, I don't know the Shane you asked about. Like I said I'm just getting back into acoustic and my background dates back to folk with little to no connection to electric.

As far as recording I just got a Zoom H2 for Christmas to check my practice sessions. I'd heard a lot about it from the guitar forums I belong to and am just now learning how to use it. I'll let you know how it goes.

A friend of mine, Jeff Lynn, gigs around Grand Haven and Muskegon. I think the last place he played was Snug Harbor and he's played at the Theatre Bar and Rosebud as well. I think there a few places in Muskegon he plays at. Talked to him last Wednesday and he said he was getting into a rock band. Everyone has different tastes.

Have you checked out Grand River Folk Arts Society in Grand Rapids? They have some good people come through and they are all acoustic.

RE: Skype.

I once considered studying with Stevie Coyle over Skype but have since opted for someone closer and face-to-face. Not sure about the delay.

Have you heard any Bruce Cockburn stuff? Plays a Linda Manzer guitar (expensive) and at one time was quite a rock musician (guess he still is). His "Speechless" album is only acoustic instrumental and is terrific. For other great acoustic players look at Leo Kottke (of course), Richard Gilewitz and The Waybacks. Stevie Coyle was a founder of The Waybacks and I heard him in Muskegon a year or so ago. Also listen to people like Andy McGee or Tommy Emanuel. There is a whole new era with really good guitar players.

Keep pickin'.

Hey Jordan,
I'm just a simple acoustic only player with about 46 years of playing (on and off) behind me, none professional but all fun. I rediscovered acoustic guitar almost 2 years ago after recovering from quadruple by-pass surgery and haven't stopped yet. Acoustic Guitar is one of the first publications that got me back into playing and lusting after guitars. My GAS is under control now because I own 3 great guitars: Larrivee L, Collings OM and Huss and Dalton 00. Fingerstyle only and loving it.
