"Songwriting"

Posted on February 19, 2011 at 12:00pm 2 Comments

Besides building instruments...I also "Write Songs"!

Came to Nashville for just that.....am currently uploading many of my Nashville demos written with my wife and a variety of co-writers!  I wish I could say it was me singing & playing these...not quite as good as these guys...that's why we hire the pros!!    If you're a songwriter check us out at  http://www.songwriternation.com/ ......I love this site ...I love Ted…

Yeah well, in case you ain't noticed...I'm kind of a smart-ass punk. If you're ever left wondering if something I've said was a joke or not, ALWAYS ASSume it's a joke. Yeah, I would have thought...well, I mean if I was capable, that other's might have sumptin' to say.

Maybe they're chicken. I would prefer that everyone's photos are done like yours, more detail !

Hey John,  yeah that hollow black locust lap steel is a great lookin build. Weighs a ton....lol. Sounds really good with one of Ted`s stonehenges on too!! Funny thing about when I set it up though...I reversed the strings...must of been thinking of a lap dulci at the time...but I like playing it like that. Besides I used expensive flat wounds on it and just didn`t want to take them off....lol. I wouldn`t even know what to ask for it....lol. It`s got a great look and sound..but better to be played plugged it....Maybe I`ll sell it if I do I`ll give you first crack at it.
