“An acoustic guitar, a clarinet, and a glass marimba” sounds a little like the setup for a joke about musicians walking into a bar. But on In Bb 2.0
, the Web project from producer and songwriter Darren Solomon
, it’s just one possible combination of instruments that can be played individually or all at once, simultaneously or staggered, and mixed according to each listener’s… Continue

Just for the record. Everyone sees me playing my Epiphone Les Paul Standard. I do own and play an Ovation CC24 Celebrity Acoustic/Electric and a Martin tweleve string acoustic. I also play a Casio and Yamaha keyboards as well as percussion including a Slingerland drum kit. I didn't want you to think that I owned was the Les Paul. LOL!

So we decided to try it ourselves. We are very pleased with the outcome. We currently have eleven originals that we are starting to record now. There is at least four with the acoustic/ electric mix. The others are all electric, keyboards, or percussion added. We are hoping to be able to release our first CD by… Continue

I spent last week at Steve Kaufman’s award-winning Acoustic Kamp, teaching guitar to around 150 guitarists, jamming with campers, and performing with current and past musical partners. It was Flatpicking, Banjo, and Mandolin week, which you might think would be dominated by bluegrass pickers and jams, but the presence of Celtic guitarist Tony McManus, Italian flatpicker Beppe Gambetta, jazz chord–solo specialist John Carlini, old-time oriented flatpickers Robin Kessinger and Eric Thompson,… Continue

Unfortunately at the time, he was about as difficult to get info on as Osama bin Laden. Happily I was able to connect with Carter and over the past month, I've helped him put together what we think is a pretty nice website allowing others to keep in touch and gain some insight into some of Carter's work. Please feel free to check out… Continue

I can't find a replacement tuner for my Fg 260. Anyone run into this problem? Find a solution/supplier? I've found replacement tuner sets that are 1" center post to center post and they are too wide. Mine are approx. 15/16" center to center with a total length of 5" outside post to outside post (126mm). The tuner sets I've tried are 130 mm. Any help would be appreciated!
