Hi, faithful readers. Sorry I haven't had much to say lately--I got into a musical slump for a while there. Worked a bunch of overtime and got worn out, then went on vacation out of town, and just got out of the musical habit for a bit.
I was revitalized by a recent workshop with David Grier. It was great to see him play, and I had an unexpected opportunity to have a private lesson with him after the workshop, which was cool. I appreciate his time when he surely must have been worn out with travel and teaching a workshop.
Here's a tune we picked together: Home Sweet Home
He takes the first break, then we alternate. He's the guy with the great ideas and great tone and loud guitar. I'm the other one...
I'm trying out the David Grier style free-floating right hand for a while. I'll see how it goes. I like the idea of not having to change my hand position at all between strumming and picking.
I'm getting back to work on rhythm tracks. Next up is Fox on the Run, then Temperance Reel.
