I am in immanent danger. I missed seeing your performance in the B.A., and we have this Cultural Death Squad up here in Berry Creek. This is a deadly serious branch of our local militia and they don’t accept excuses (I forgot!). Unless you grant me a full pardon they’re sure to kill me or tell Michael.
On the other hand (the one without the broken thumb) maybe I’ll see you in Napa. I sure hope so. My best, Reynold
Hi Duck. Looking forward to your show at the London South Bank on 15th Feb. Hoping to pick up a few tips. I hope you don’t mind me trying to steal a few licks.
Duck … ole buddy. how you been doing.. Long time since out Leesburg days. Steph and I are in Phlia now.. I still play that blasted flamenco guitar you got me hooked on. My technique is still good ….. but hell if I can get that alternating thumb thing to work for me….
Let me know if your in the Phlia area…
As much as I enjoy your music, I also enjoyed your essays on Traditional and “Celtic” music.
Thanks for a great workshop. It was great to be able to hang out and learn from a player I’ve been listening to for years. One of the very first songs I learned years ago was your arrangement of “The Duke of Fife’s Welcome to Deeside”. I really liked the way you tied in a music history lesson with everything you taught. You showed a respect for the art that’s not seen very much.
Duck…just a belated thank you for a wonderful evening at The Bop Shop in Rochester, NY…raconteur, bon-vivant, hail-fellow-well-met, all-round good guy…and a truly superior musician.
June and I love your Christmas CD, by the way!
I hope to enjoy another evening like that somewhere, sometime soon…
all the best,
I have your first ever album, and I’ve still got the tab book that came with it. I’d forgotten all about your wonderful playing until I went into Guitar works in Reading to buy a guitar with the intention of reliving some of my lost youth. One of the guys in there mentioned your name as a local guitar teacher and it all came flooding back. I’ve not played guitar for about 10 years and I shall certainly be dipping into that Something For Everyone in America tab book while I get my fingers working again. It’s just a pity I don’t have an old-fashioned record player any more.
I ‘ve enjoyed your style of pickin’ for years. I am a long-time gospel guitar player
