Sorry to make this my first post and a long one at that but I just got my membership approved in this community and this just happened to me last night.
Last night I was changing strings on my new guitar which I bought just a month ago. It is a Lowden Lucky Strike, #4 in a series of 10. The guitar was special to me for many reasons - 40 year old reclaimed Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, Mahogany neck made from reclaimed church pews and a flawless, perfectly grained…Continue

This was my contribution to "Writers in the Round" at Bunkfest 2011. Bunkfest is a music festival in Wallingford, England. This was a great experience. It is such a good way to showcase songs in a very relaxed atmosphere. Click on Michael McCarthy to open the link.

Now I just practice all the songs I know in prep for hopefully…Continue
