New Fan Art Guitar Strap

I just received a new guitar strap in the mail out of the blue. And it features artwork from my new album, Lost and Haunted Ways. The coolest part is, the strap fits perfectly, despite having no way to adjust it. So I start to use it whenever I am in need of a guitar strap.

Errors in Digital Download of Lost and Haunted Ways

For those who downloaded the Hi-Def FLAC audio files of my album Lost and Haunted Ways, I discovered the wrong files had been uploaded.   Although the sound quality is no different than the final versions, the files you received do not have the metadata tags that allow the Artist, Album, Date, etc. show up in your music players.

Happy 2017!

Like so many, I am so glad to see 2016 go. Here’s to a much better 2017. I am looking forward to performing, recording, reviewing, with some excellent guitars in the coming year. I spent New Years Eve talking out all of my guitars, because I know they can get bored, and spent some time with each, before putting them to bed with refreshed humidifiers. Happy New Year
