There's always something going on.

I've been working alot on perfecting the use of a Resonator Guitar for Acoustic Blues.

The most interesting thing I picked up on was the usage of different open tunings, finger style and use of a slide. The whole trick is to constantly keep a rhythm going. It's progressively getting better each day.  The Delta Blues and it's history is quite interesting.

In my spare time I'm listening to recordings of Memphis Slim, Robert Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Memphis Minnie, Son House,  Sister Rosetta, R.L. Burnside, Charlie Patton, Skip James, Leadbelly and so many others. There's alot of heart and soul in their recordings.

I've also restored my original 1965 Gretsch Amplifier G6150T. It really sounds awesome and brought back many memories.   ( See Video Below )

Since retiring from teaching music lesson, there's been more time for our personal vacation trips.

We returned from a 12 day trip to the Great Smokie Mountains in Tennessee the 2nd week of June and had perfect weather for camping in the RV.  More trips are already in the books for the end of August and then another 12 day return trip to Myrtle Beach South Carolina in November. This time we'll be camping right at the foot of the beach.
