Recording Complete & Shelbyville, KY Gigs Confirmed

On-stage in Morehead, KY 2017
MORE DATES PENDING in Nashville, TN, Cincinnati, OH, Louisville, KY, Macon, GA, and more....for university clinics, store workshops (songwriting, inprov, etc), and public performances.

Scheduling music intern meeting(s) now for paid and non-paid projects.

Recording for the new 3 song EP of old folk & blues songs complete. Awaiting mixes now....but suffice to say it picks up where "Carnival at the Crossroads" left off. That is, these are old (public domain) songs from 19th & 20th century brought into the 21st century in all their neo-cyber glory!

Work-out schedule so far this week:

Monday (broken into 3 short work-outs across the day) - 300 push-ups, 200 stairs, 300 dips, 300 squats, 50 pull-ups, 200 sit-ups.

Tuesday (broken into 2 work-outs) - Go-dai series, Tibetan Rites, 100 squats, various light calisthenics.

Wednesday (so far) - 500 stairs, 100 pull-ups, 400 squats, 300 calf raises.

[edit: Thursday work-out - 200 push-ups, 200 dips, 200 squats, 300 sit-ups and Friday saw 100 pull-ups, 250 calf raises, 300 squats...and a few hours later another 50 pull-ups]

In addition, I finally got back to specific guitar practice (other than scales and such) and am focusing on heavy rhythm drills (polyrhythms, specifically) and fingerstyle blues (constant thumb drone against fingers for chords, licks, melodies, etc) plus a bit of arpeggio work. Realized also that I slide when soloing more than the average player, so really building on that....and other "Skinny Devil-isms", as one of my students put it (haha!).
