December will be busy!

I will be posting my December singing and preaching dates here soon.  I appreciate prayers as this will be a very busy time of the year.

I have routinely sung a Christmas program for as many as 5 retirement / assisted living centers each December, plus for a couple of community or church groups.  Some of the great folk who participate in our 1st Church String Band ministry will be helping me out when they can.  Everyone will be blessed as a result.

I ended up taking the month of November off due to a sore back issue that needed several chiropractic visits before it was remedied.  I did get to sing at our Family Advent Wreath event here at the church.  That was a blast.

We especially have reason to sing in December!   Sing out!

What's the best guitar to own and play?

I get asked this question more than one would think.

What's the best guitar to own and play?

My answer is . . . "how would I know?"

Just kidding . . . that's not my usual answer.

My usual answer is really a lot longer than that . . .

So . . . from my perspective and belief . . . the best guitar to own and play is . . .

1)  is the one that feels great when YOU hold it;

2)  is the one that sounds great when YOU play it;

3)  is the one that YOU can't put down, and if YOU do put it down, it grieves YOU to do so;

4)  is the one that YOU miss when YOU are not playing it;

5)  is the one that YOU know tunes up great and stays in tune;

6)  is the one that is set up the best for YOUR style of playing, and it doesn't leave YOU tired or with cramped hands after YOU finish playing it and put it back into the case.

7)  is the guitar that YOU, and YOU alone, think is the right guitar for YOU.

Unfortunately . . . many people disagree with me . . . and claim that certain bran…

More harmonica tab resources . . .

Home with a sore lower back today . . . and probably tomorrow.

What to do?  Research more free harmonica tab sites.

And I found one called HarpTabs at www.harptabs.com.

This site supposedly has free access to over 10,000 songs in many genres.  Not bad.

Check it out for yourself . . . www.harptabs.com.

My 3 best reasons for visiting Arkansas . . .

My three best reasons for visiting Arkansas, especially the Eureka Springs area (not counting the beautiful fall foliage) that have nothing to do with or about music.

1)  The iced tea (OMG! What are the putting in the water??)

2)  The Ham ("sooooeeyy pig" is right!)

3)  Any kind of pancakes (the beauties in the picture are the blueberry pancakes from Myrtie Mae's Restaurant.

Oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy!

God's grace . . . and favorite places . . . still amazes me . . . ><>


I'm back!!!

Howdy all!

We are back from a week in Arkansas to see the season change and to see the beautiful colorful leaves of the Ozark Mountains.

We were not disappointed.  The leaves were very beautiful in and around Eureka Springs.

And, I got a little harmonica playing in!!!

This week and next week are busy singing weeks.  I will report more about music and life very soon.
