Really nice to hear from you and so glad you enjoyed the new songs. You're on my list of complementary CD recipients my friend. Your comments are always valued and encouraging so it will be my pleasure when I get the product completed. That's terrible news in regards to the state of education. It's nowhere that bad here as a matter of a fact we seem to be going through a positive period of growth although we are also caught up in the inevitable world of data data data. I feel like producing some merchandise with the slogan People Before Data emblazoned across the stuff. Anyway, whilst you're freezing over there our cousins in Queensland are battening down for an almighty cyclone tonight. It looks to be as be as Katrina so our thoughts are for our fellow Aussies over on the east Coast. That's great news about your acoustic group developing. Maybe you should record some sessions and post them. Whilst I love working here in my little studio I miss getting out to play so we're waiting for our wet season to finish up so I can get some of my friends out to do some gigs locally. Keep that creative spark turning over Jeff and take care. Thanks again for your kindness.
Lovely to hear from you. So glad you liked the new song. I'm really enjoying the learning curve on the new gear. The vocal pre amps on the new M box are great and add so much presence to the vocals. I'm delighted your inspired, I look forward to the next J Lustick composition soon. Best wishes for Christmas to you and yours. I'm aiming to get a few more tunes down by the end of January. Take Care.
Thank you for commenting! Yes, "Where the Wind Blows," I used a Progressive Rock vocal style on it and it wavers back and forth. I think I will be re-recording this one. I was glad to have finished the three that slump was not fun!
By the way which one is your favorite? I am only going to leave the fav picks on My Page and delete the others. I have some votes for "Better Left Unsaid," so far the fav. Looking for more input, what say you?
Hi Jeff: Yes, there are local hotels, but a better deal is to stay at Winchells Inn at Ashokan, where they have private rooms with a bath, for about $20.00 more a night than the regular registration. If you want to check it out, go to www.ashokancenter.org and then email or call them for more info. Here is a list of hotels in the area:
Days Inn, 914-331-1919 Holiday Inn, 914-338-0400 Howard Johnsons, 914-246-9511 (farther away, in Saugerties) Ramada Inn, 914-339-3900 Resevoir Motel 914-657-2002 (probably closest) Super 8 Motel 914-338-3078 Super Lodge Motel 914-338-4200
You might also consider the Twin Gables in Woodstock 914-679-9479, they have rooms with and without bath, that may cut down on the cost. But won't be as inexpensive as staying on campus at Winchells Inn
Best wishes,Penny Nichols

The EP is finally finished! I think it came out pretty darn good and can't wait for you to hear it! I have your mailing address from before and plan to get a copy to you before Christmas! Thanks for your positive comments and inspiring input! Ed
Congratulations! You've done it - the drought is broken. Passin' Through is a beautiful reflective piece that I connected with straight away. I love the lyrics, and the mood is set beautifully with the picking pattern. I can picture you sitting on the banks of some stream with your guitar just facing up to life. Do not be fearful any more:-) Inspirational - well done.
Hi Jeff, Yes Franklin is about 100 miles from Louisville. You would have passed through here going to Louisville or to New Albany. If you blinked you might have missed it.
I enjoyed listening to a couple of your tracks, I wish you great success with your music.
You sure have some nice guitars there too!!
Thanks for the comment, Jeff... I am new to the Asheville area, having previously lived in the Czech Republic for 5 years, and the NC Piedmont before that. I was lucky to find a 20-year old custom-made Furch guitar while in Czech, and I really love it's sound and the way it plays. It was made by Frantisek in his workshop around 1990 before he renovated an old mill near Brno to start up his post-revolution business and the resulting factory. Now his guitars are exported here to the US as Stonebridge, and I believe he must build mandolins as well. Thanks for the welcome!
Hey Jeff, thanks for the quick reply...I could only get the middle link to work...the first looks like you have to be a member and the last one wouldn't work...it's okay, I was just interested in seeing how you had posted it around. I wish you luck finding a new partner to play with, it's heard but once you do it's worth it. Also, keep working on those new songs, I know you have them inside of you and I wanna hear them! Ed
Hey Jeff, the place where you posted Next to Nothing, is it a site I can go to, I would just like to see it online! Thanks for telling about the good comment, I appreciate that. I have been working of my 5 song (plus a bonus track) and now have all the songs written, tow finished, tow that just need final vocals and one that has two guitar parts and a final vocal, it just needs "sweetening" with additional instruments...of course the Bonus track is an old one I recorded in my original studio, so it is ready to drop in. I have been loving the iMAC studio and Logic Pro 9. I read the almost 1000 page companion Logic Pro 9 book and that did me a lot of good, but not as much as just getting in there and "playing" with it! I hope to post a few more tunes form the CD soon, but rest assured you will be getting a comp copy as soon as it is finished. I have been getting the artwork together for the cover and the insert and will be ordering the blank CD's and jackets soon...I am also about to purchase a CD printer...so, it IS happening! How are your projects coming? Anything new posted lately? Thanks, Edward
