"Short Road We're On" April, 2004
Been wanting to make this cd for 30 years. I hope you enjoy the album and find something there to inspire you.
"Some will die for freedom some will die for love
some will never know what they're dyin of
some will live for money some will live for war
and some will never know what they're livin for
choose your seat on the evening train
take your seat on the rolling train"
I play a Guild F30 for open G tunings and Guild D35-SB for all other folk guitar tunes. I play Fender USA stratocaster for my electric songs. I use Hohner Marine Band harmonicas and all Carvin speakers and amps for live performances.
