Tips, Techniques, Examples about my favorite musical instrument, the Twelve-String Guitar.

If you play guitar check out Playing Technique, or Strings / Setup. There are also some interesting posts about guitars at, you guessed it, Guitars.

If you want to spread your musical talents around, you will find some good info at Recording.

Marketing - meh - I'm probably the world's best bad example. Although you could find funny stuff there.

I've made some music videos through the years, and you can find them and other interesting music at Music I Like, Music I Play.

Electric Instruments

Speed, acrylic on board c. 1980 Art Sulger

I'm having some fun this winter adding soundtracks to some of the video I shot from a bicycyle.
Here's one that has a lot of fast cuts and video effects (via OpenShot Video Editor). The sound track is a lot of electric guitar, and some simulated brake and wind noises. The camera came loose from the mounting about half-way down the hill, and I had to keep adjusting it; I think it adds a certain excitement to the shots.

Hogback mountain is not the scariest descent - but it does rank high in technical ability, at least for my skill level.

Here's the video: Descent of Hogback Mountain

It was a chilly day for me - anything below 60 F is chilly for me - check out the lobster gloves.

Kind of inspires me for a song (with apologies to Sourwood mountain)

'Chickens a crowin on hogback mountain
hey dang diddle all the day
so many cycle-ists ah jest can't count em
hoot dang diddle all the day'

Or something similar - LOL
