Have mercy on us, 2022.  It's been a long couple of years.  

I'm starting to gig again.  I already have a couple things on the calendar for 2022.

I'm putting up a couple Christmas music videos, so check my YouTube channel for that.

Merry Christmas!!

YouTube Channel

 Hey, Mom!

I put a link in the navigation bar (or drop down menu on your phone if you're not my mom) that goes right to my YouTube channel.  I'm finally starting to feel motivated to accomplish something during the pandemic, so I thought a safe activity would be creating music videos.  

Click on "My YouTube Channel" to see what I've been doing lately.

That Train

Cabin fever from doing a little too much "social distancing" in reaction to the COVID-19 virus led to this playtime fun. 

Fender announced the Tenor Tele at NAMM, January 2019, but didn't ship any until much later in the year.  I think I received mine on New Year's Eve Eve.  It arrived strung up like the higher four strings of a guitar (DBGE); very light.  I wanted an electric octave mandolin, so I fit bigger strings on it and tuned it GDAE.  The PR and Leslie have been in the family forever.

This is a Los Lobos tune that I've known for a long time and it sounds really cool with this setup.
