Description : Just some fun instrumental sliding in open G, GDG, on The Lone Rider fretless 3 string guitar. Rythym played using a ceramic slide by Evolution stoneware, lead using a Mojoboneworks bone/wood slide, both handcrafted as well as the guitar. Been a while, good to be back B-)

    Hey Danke, I know you're a bluesman B-) I may revisit your Dirty roads loops for something new on homemade guitars. These internet trolls don't bother me, occasionally they wander out from under their bridge in boredom to harass the rest of us having fun. Just finished "The Angel" a 27 inch scale (not sure the metric conversion) white coffin electric guitar, the mate to my black coffin guitar, working on something for halloween with both, each containing my own handwound pickups. I could see the Tarantino feeling, maybe this will end up in one of his movies then I'll be rich and famous and can build and play guitars instead of work! LOL! :)

    Hey Burt, i'm really happy to see you here again!
    What a great coincidence.
    I'm back on loopermann and then I find a new song from you here. And then I read that you have internet access at home again and also thinking about making music together .... If that's not great, what else should it be?
    I am happy to be available for a renewed cooperation.

    stay tuned
    joe

    PS: the track sounds great and you played it very well with a lot of feeling. I really enjoyed the listen.

    JOE!! It really all started here for me, I was away for a time but did check in, nightmare using mobile internet! How you doing? If you see my stuff on FB you know I'm doing well, kind of have become a rockstar in the homemade instrument community. Funny I was thinking about our collabs this morning talking with a local musician that does Graveyard blues, and Once was exactly the song! I'm in the middle of wiring up a coffin guitar with 2 more halloween type ones coming next. Definitely need to work together on some new material. One is getting a bass guitar string with 3 regular guitar strings, should be very interesting. We need something in time for the annual Halloween thread, scary enough to make up for my absence last year. I have a Luthier show the first week of October, 1 of 2 builders, very exciting. Sold guitars at the first CBG festival in this area, kicked ass and had an absolute great time. I'll message you later see if we can't get something started. These people have ruined me, I only use handmade guitar accesories now!! Preinstalled mojo ;) So happy to hear from you Joe! I'll be in touch.

    Hey Burt. It was great discovering your track tonight. Sounds amazing. It's fantastic (and inspirational) to see you totally in the zone with your homemade instruments - and now posting with them! Look forward to more. Dan

    Hey Dan! These people have ruined me!! I don't touch my production guitars anymore, except my bass, and fell in love with the hand crafted guitar slides and picks, the production ones lack mojo. Had a blast vending at Maine's first cigar box guitar festival, did very well and met some great people. You guys in Pennsylvania just had one this weekend, and made the Guiness book of world records for most people playing cbgs at once, Bad to the Bone. Homemade instruments have become a big thing lately. I finally made that gourdtar and two gourd amps (one sold), I remember the painting you had a few years ago of a gourd dulcimer. Finally got home internet again so I can participate here once more. Inspirational is very good :D Maybe we'll have to work together again. This guitar was one of the first made, still my fav after a few years. Oh yes, there'll be more, just deciding what to upload next, while I play around and record more. I need to get back into this digital production stuff, been away from it for quite a while. Good to see you Dan!

    I'm hooked on these homemade guitars and accessories! Monday I should be getting an order of hand carved picks made from bone, buffalo horn, and various wood burls. Typically they're tuned in fifths making them very simple instruments to play. Cigar box and other homemade guitars are the granddaddys of the blues, check out the history on 3 string guitar dot com, Red dog Guitars. Loads of information. Theyre typically made from found or scavenged items, poor mans guitar. Blues 'til your blue as a smurf! I'll record one on my cigar box amp next. Thanks Bilbozo

    Trust me, you don't want me to sing LOL! I've been checking the acapellas to see if I could work with anything like I used to here. Seems singers are hard to come by. Harmonica would be great!! Check out Juzzie Smith on you tube, one man band. Amazing blues, harmonica player.

    Didn't reconize me at first huh? LOL! Been a while and quite a trip! That's one thing I love about the homemade instrument movement, the raw imperfect nature of it all. It's ok not to be all polished and studio perfect, it's about music,art and expression. I hardly touch my production guitars anymore, even production picks and slides feel dirty to me, in favor of handmade items. Seems to have mojo preinstalled ;) I played a tune on my cigar box amp as a demo people seemed to love on fb, I'll rip the audio from the webcam video to upload here. Very happy to be able to interact here again and see my old friends still around doing their thing. I'll be needing some fresh tunes to listen to at work too. Good to see you and thank you Leon :D

    Welcome back. Some gritty nasty-sounding blues which is perfect in the mid-august heat. Feel like I need to find a swamp or something ehh, glad to see yer back, glad to hear your homemade instruments.

    Crafter of fine instruments is a stretch hahaha but I do love the raw, gritty nature of them. Even starting to wind my own magnetic pick ups. Careful of them leeches and alligators, do you hear banjos? Paddle faster!!!! It has been hot lately, seeing what's to come I can't complain. Thrilled to be back and checking out all the great homegrown music here again. Thanks Steve, great to see you guys all again. Try this site on your phone, you think halloween is scary!!

Description : My friend, fellow musician, and all around great guy Mark Ratcliffe approached me about doing a blues tune and I jumped at the chance to work with Mark again. He's got a great voice for the blues....I once described it as a mixture of gin, cigarette smoke, and ministry. He sings the blues like he's been there and that is the way it should be done.

This tune sounds like a live recording....like we were there with Muddy Waters and the boys and I love the feel of this one. Mark Ratcliffe - vocals, lyrics, lead guitar, drums, bass, harmonica. Barry Morgan - rhythm guitars, organ, horns. No animals or cops were harmed in the production of this. A huge thanks to Mark for providing the talent (he also mixed and mastered it). I hope you all enjoy listening to it as much as we did making it.

Description : Of all the classic Monster tales the Wolfman is definitely one of the sadest. Cursed, and destined to live as both man and monster. This Halloween I imagined he would make the perfect bluesman. During the day he sits alone with his guitar, a prisoner of lonely existence, crying his heart out through his music. While at night, the beast emerges, and in the dark under a full moon, he rips the hearts out of his victims!

Special, text-based prizes to be awarded to the best comments!

Description : My thoughts for a Halloween track this year was to work up some foreboding Drone music with a little Delta Blues slide guitar mixed in. My inspiration being the classic story of Robert Johnson and his infamous deal with the Devil.

In Clarksdale, Mississippi in 1930, Robert Johnson supposedly made a deal with the devil at the crossroads where US highway 49 crosses US highway 61. Johnson had been playing down in Yazoo City and was on his way back up to Helena. He had hitched a ride that dropped him off next to the levee. It was a cool October night and a full moon glowed in the dark sky. He continued walking up the highway, guitar in his hand. As he approached the crossroads he was thinking about his friend Son House preaching to him about giving up his guitar playing. He really wasn't a good player and most people would joke and mock him when he was on stage. He hated it and was thinking he would give anything to be as good, no, better than his friend Son House. It was at that moment he noticed a figure in black standing there at the crossroads. As he approached him, a deep voice issued "Let me see that guitar boy"! He then took his guitar from him, tuned it and upon returning it asked if he would trade his soul to become a famous Bluesman. He agreed and the rest is history. Johnson's ability was seemingly transformed overnight to the amazement of everyone who knew him and he went on to become a Mississippi Blues legend. However, his fame was short lived. A mere eight years later the Devil returned to make good on the deal.

So this Halloween, be careful what you wish for, especially at the crossroads.

Description : This is a tune dedicated to my friend, Nancy, who followed me to the clubs I played at for years, and is still following me with my studio work. Why do I dedicate this to her? Onnacounta cause she's soooooo naughty! She never liked violins, but loved her sax! Here's to you, Nancy. Anyway, this is a little blues track with some nice guitar and sex...oh, sorry, I mean sax.

Enjoy and download away.

Description : Cosmic Eastern chillout atmospheric shuffle blues with loads of bluesy/Eastern electric guitar playing and warm sub bass (the same synth patch I've used in about 20 tracks). No drum loops and just two programmed acoustic kits - probably the simplest drum setup I've ever used. One day I hope to make a track containing only one drum kit. Also: a few female vocal samples (including a heavily timestretched one), one section of bass guitar, a few sample-based string instruments, a few notes of organ and two synth pad instruments. So, quite a minimal instrument lineup for me. It goes uptempo around 4:31 into a grooving, stomping bit of shuffle blues and I wonder if I should have brought this section back at the end for a triumphant finale. But I'm trying hard these days not to make things too long and this is already a decent length. Also contains some darker, Eastern sections but nothing too dark. Have a listen and leave me some interesting feedback - the more detail, the better.

Description : Been away for a while. I am doing something I usually don't do with this one. Here is a blues track I put together in a day. It features everything being done by me, with improvised solos for each instrument. This was done using Fl Studio 12 and my Korg M50 keyboard. I plan on adding lyrics to it down the road and having everything much cleaner. Anyhow, enjoy!
