(rough) ride in a little red wagon_warts and all...

Postby thenorm » Mon Jul 11, 2011 8:19 pm

I've been windbagging on this site for years and never played a note.
There were reasons. Mainly because most of my playing was on Dobro. There's a lot of guitar players around but not so many dobro players.

Anyway, it got so bad (not practicing) that my calluses went.

About two month ago I injured my left hand. Pulled something... couldn't make a fist let alone play guitar and that was a Wake Up Call.

I spent literally hours in recovery tryiing to get back what I could of my playing.

I got some of it back. Not as good as I was years ago but whatcha hear is what I got.

Single cut 6122 Gent... made in 1961. Super Tron at the fingerboard and a TVJones 8k pickup at the bridge. Tru-Arc brass bridge plugged direct into the PC.

Sorry it's so rough, boys, but you have no idea what I had to go thru to get even this much...

And, as Chet said... "all mistakes are intentional"

Hi Norm, Sounds good! Still love those old Single CG. I wish they would have made a Hall of Famer exactly like Chets 59, right to the finest detail. Al

Norm, that old Gent sings like a stately old Gentleman. Thank you for sharing its beautiful music with us. Music is a gift that is to be shared. Some time in a generation or two from now, a decendant of yours is going to hear this and be proud of you. That little piece spoke volumes to me.

Thanks,
Richard

Norm,
You did a good job on Little Red Wagon. You should record some more songs to share with us.

Norm, I enjoyed your playing. You and your Gent sounded great. I'm sorry you had a hand problem and I hope it gets back to where you want it. Take care,
Ray
