The cd I just finished recording is called Ring Of Fire. I wrote 8 songs on the cd and cover thte Johnny Cash song, "Ring Of Fire" as a slide guitar instrumental with a Bo Diddley groove. Also Bill Monroe's tune,"Gold Rush", which features dobro as the lead voice and some nice reharmonization at the end of the song. All the songs include a killer band of musicians, which include Reese Wynans from Double Trouble, Pasi Leppikangas from John Cowan's band and Ron de la Vega from Nanci Griffith's band.
I also have another cd of original instrumentals, called "1511". A few of the song downloads here are from that cd.
For the Ring OF Fire cd, I used 2 custom Tele slide guitars, both built by my friend Lynn Ellsworth from a drawing I made. The slide guitar pictured on my website,
has a cedar top and square neck. Joe Glaser helped me with the electronics. The guitar has a Fishman Powerbridge and a Demeter mid-boost.
Also on the record are an '81 ShoBro dobro by Shot Jackson, a James Tyler strat, a '64 Fender Strat, a Jerry Jones Baritone guitar, a '93 Martin HD-28 and a '43 Martin 000-18.
Amps used were a Speedster Deluxe, a THD Univalve and a '60 Fender Concert.
