Blues on Halloween :)

My latest, somewhat “found-object” guitar build is a 4 stringer- 1 bass string and 3 guitar strings to be played with a slide (it’s fretless). So this was an idea I’d had for awhile, but I’d never built one exactly like it before. All it needs are…

GK Solo Blues- @ The Stand, Oxford, Michigan Sat. Nov. 5

Had a great time with old friends and new at Fat Calf Cafe, Chicago this past weekend. Two dear friends from Germany are visiting JPUSA and also came along with Wendi and I to the show. Maron did a wonderful set of songs as always and the many cha…

Political/Sacrificial Christian Rant

This blog entry will not be what you may think it’ll be as it’s not condoning either party whom the majority or minority of voters vote for each election year in the U.S.. Rather, it’s about the average American citizen and about how we got into t…
