Here is some new stuff by Kory Willis
on guitar No.59, GA-RW, which stands for
Grand Auditorium, by the way.
Martin also calls this size 0000 or M.
And now the tune called Goodbye Baby Lion
Next is Sunflower River Blues
Here is Keep On The Sunny Side Of Life
Alright, here are another couple of tunes by Kory Willis.
His guitar is OM-M No.43.
The first track is Christmas Eve Waltz
This one is Spring Is Just Around The Corner.
Here we have Mike Horan who gave me some of his time
on a cold January morning to do some
fancy fingerings and fretwork.
We set up the Rode NT2 and CAD mics into a tube preamp
into the minidisc recorder for your listening pleasure.
This guitar is No.17, a mahogany D.
It is Mike's Midday Rambler guitar on his own tune
Goodbye Stetson Hat.
This is also Mike's No.17.
Drop D tuning, and if you don't know the tune
then shame on ya.
Thanks to Seth Hayden for these next two tracks.
He has one of my CLGs, red spruce, mahogany, no binding.
His group is The Washover Fans.
The album is That Habit Suits You.
Light Sweet Crude is this first song.
This next song is called Home
This is John Messina with Hormigo D No.52.
He recorded with an AT 2021 with just a little bit of compression.
Hormigo is an incredible sounding wood.
I would describe it as
half mahogany, half Brazilian rosewood.
The volume on John's recordings seem to be higher than the others so be careful.
Lonesome Road Blues.
Here's John and No.52 on
Saint Annes Reel
One more from John Messina and No.52.
Here is Wildwood Flower
Next up: More from Mike Horan.
This is the latest OM-mahogany, No.55.
I should know the name of this tune...
Mike on OM No.55 again.
This is a pretty little tune called
There And Back Again
This is Mike Horan on D-M No.53.
This guitar is for sale at Mass. Street Music,
by the way.
Some chords on No.53
Mike Horan again but this time with
No.51, a 13 fret Nick Lucas with maple back and sides.
This guitar is also for sale.
And again Mike with the NL-Maple No.51
I made this quick recording a couple years ago
with my homemade stereo mic to minidisc.
The guitar is No.6, a 14 fret 000.
For this next set of recordings
I set up a Rode NT2 about a foot and a half away
and a CAD95 about 5" from the end of the fingerboard.
Into a tube preamp then to mini disc then to computer.
Its just me playing though, so please forgive the mistakes.
Practicing hasn't been on the agenda for years.
This guitar was made especially for
the Thomastik classic steel flatwound strings.
Kind of a fun different feel and sound.
It is a 000-12 fret cutaway, Sitka top, Indian rosewood
back and sides, No.54.
Let's see, what should we do next?
How about No.38 that just happened to be in
for a little neck adjustment?
It is an OM, mahogany with a beautiful
Engelman spruce top.
Next up: Nick Lucas, No.51.
Red spruce, quilted maple, 13 fret neck.
Same guitar with bare fingers.
