    nothing fancy, at all; just some noodling,
    a very quick clip i did,
    for someone potentially interested in purchasing this instrument from me.

    recorded on an m-audio microtrack, w/the wee little onboard mic.
    tiniest bit of 'verb added.

    do beware the accidental "sketch", near the ending;
    i got carried away, a little.
    and:
    please don't listen on tiny laptop speakers, if ye can avoid 'em.

    enjoy, if possible!

    ha!
    i lost it.
    my little microtrack forgot to tell me it was "full", so i kept recording,
    and recording, and recording..... but nothing was in the files:
    zero:
    it surely LOOKED like it was recording, the stoopit bugger did.
    but, i finally figgered it out.
    silly me, really.

    That was AWESOME. I humbly suggest you submit the singing coda to Mr. Eicher as your proposed new direction for your next ECM release!

    :bow

    Seriously - lovely playing and singing.

    Best to y'all this season, d00d!

    ha!
    man. in all honesty, the only reason i could actually post this clip
    was for the inclusion of that little, accidental "comedy"-sketch!
    not fishing at all, here, but..... i thought the playing was, errrmmm, weak @ best,
    mostly 'cuz the stoopit recording device bungled my first 3 improv'ed
    recordings..... by not actually recording them:
    argh!
    still, the clip does show how this guitar sounds, pretty well.

    ..... and to you, too:
    o, my missing brother.....

    that's a rare resonator geetar right there!

    are you still recording for ECM splatt?

    i almost went to work for them in the late 90s. they were one of the only BMG labels i totally respected.

    ..... truly, dude!

    yes!
    i left them for almost 20yrs, but returned in 2007;
    very nice to be "back", in fact.
    thinking hard about my next disc, these days.....

    it was a completely accidental, impromptu comedic fit, born of personal frustration.....
    ..... and, the primary reason for actually posting the danged thing.
