After an absense from the US market of more than 25 years, T. Haruo guitars will soon be issuing a "Celebration" model. These outstanding Japanese made acoustics entered the U.S. market for a short time in late seventies and early eighties, and have developed a strong fan club, known for their excellent craftsmanship and unbelievable tone. The amazing thing is, "nobody will part with a T. Haruo guitar." You simply have not been able to get one because no one will part ways with them. The good… Continue

Matt Stevens (Guitars) - Spencer Park(Norwich Bootleg) Live 08
This is a live version of my song Spencer Park - its an audience recording from a gig I did in Norwich a couple of years ago - the quality of the recording isn’t great - one mic in the audience but I’ve cleaned it up as best i can. I was playing in a cafe bar - you can really hear the audience moving around. I like it that you can hear my pedals clicking and the glasses of the audience. As it… Continue

I play 5 string banjo, have played it on and off for over 20 years. I chord and strum tenor banjo. I have taken up mandolin (because of Amy Ray having so darn much fun with one on stage). I play autoharp and a'harp type antique instruments. I play a little mountain dulcimer which gives it oh so sweet sound when picked or strummed lightly. My ex plays guitar, and is a phenominal player. Therefore I never needed to learn to play that instrument. If I needed/wanted accompanyment all I had to do… Continue

The case was in court again earlier this week. The DA announced that the prosecution will not seek the death penalty in the case. The defendant waived his right to a speedy trial, and the case has been re-set for jury trial on August 2, 2010.
There will be a hearing on April 13 on a defense motion regarding one of the "special allegations." Not much will happen; the prosecution stated in court that they will not oppose the motion. It will not have much effect on the course of the… Continue

It wasn't until I started working with Cole Clark Guitars that I become aware of Adam Rafferty and his gift. If you have never seen him play, then get ready to have your mind blown. Check out this video of him doing a classic Jackson 5 original, ABC's… Continue

So I could land a date the week before or on the way back to CO,perhaps in Indiana, Missouri, or Kansas. I have a comprehensive "How To Host a House Concert" guide that helps the first-time concert host through the details. Let me… Continue

Week One/Day One:
I just had my first sit down with my guitar.
First I tuned it, guess that's a really good practice to get into,
Next I took Greg's advice, starting with the G until I got a clear
then practicing the Em, and then both in combination
I pretty much have those two down right now.
Ran into a bit of trouble with the C and by the time I got to D
my hand was aching a bit.
I mainly focused on making sure that after I fingered… Continue
