Stove Up is a masterpiece. It is stuck solid in my CD-player. Your own tracks on there stand toe-to-toe with the classics.
I know Charlie's sitting in a jail-cell watching the clock nowadays but why did he go downtown?
every choice he makes, it just gets worse.
Hey, Danny, I don't have a question, just wanted to say thanks. I've been playing guitar for years -- acoustic, travis-picking style. But my hearing has been failing for years and I finally had to get a cochlear implant just to function in my job (the kind of job with meetings at big tables and you'd better be able to hear people). Though I still play the guitar, it's not the same -- the quality of a guitar's sound suffers with the cochlear. But I picked up an inexpensive banjo at a great guitar store (in Evanston, Illinois) and I found that the sound of a banjo works really well for me. No problem hearing and appreciating that twangy, metalic, sharp pitch. Anyway, I've been teaching myself to make banjo sounds I like -- and your instructional videos on youtube really help. For one thing, you give people permission to do it their way. Transferring from guitar, that's nice. So thanks, for the friendly and down-to-earth help. I can still make music now.
Hey Danny - As a clawhammer player who dabbles in scruggs style, it seems like sometimes when I hear you playing you're mixing clawhammer with finger picking. Do you have some clever way you've figured out to do that?
