- House Concert
I have several CDs on CDBaby. There's a link to the right.
I'll be using two instruments predominantly for these broadcasts. The first is an acoustic lap steel guitar made by James Adams in Texas. It's a first cousin to a dobro, but instead of a resonator cone, it has a standard flat soundboard like a regular guitar. It has no frets (just inlaid lines) and the strings are very high to facilitate playing with a slide bar. Most of the time, I tune it to open D (lo to hi D A D F# A D). I do a couple of tunes in low G (D G D G B D).
My standard acoustic guitar is a Chinese made Wechter. It's inspired by the old 12-fret 000 Martins made a long time ago. The neck is joined to the body at the 12th fret instead of the 14th as usual. I love 12 fret iguitars, and this one particularly. I've owned much more expensive guitars, but none that played or sounded any better. Sadly, they're no longer made.
