    Hi, Stan. I just heard you music on myspace and I got a few question. Are you using an open tuning, and what is it. Your sound is very cool. Are you using a distortion box, or just overdriving the amp. Have you ever tried a thumb pick. I have one that is totally adjustable, and you can set the angle of attack. It worked for me when I was having hand problems. It might be worth a try. And lastly...how can I hear more of your music? Thanks for sharing it.

It needs no help, and suffers no hindrance. It has always found me, and with God's blessing and permission, it always will." Eric Clapton

      sjs, I haven't checked out your site yet, but I'm psyched! I've always wanted to try playing again, but other stuff got in the way: school, drawing, work, etc. Like 6string wondered, I figured an open tuning would be best, maybe using a slide. I miss playing guitar badly...er...I badly miss playing guitar.

        OK, watching/listening! Cool! I see still shots, but not video. Maybe I need to be signed into MySpace? Anyway, I dig the sound, and it looks like something similar to what I had been thinking.

        Is that a custom built guitar? Where can I get one of those?

        I was just saying the other day how I don't know if I could even read music now if I tried, I haven't done it in so long. I broke my neck in 1990 (17 years almost) and I had been playing guitar for about 4 years, classical and rock, acoustic (Yamaha) and electric (Ibanez strat copy).

        Dude, we gotta talk!

          Haven´t gone into your site or listened yet. I am a para, which obviously makes playing a lot easier. I played during my teens and 20´s in cover bands and some original music. I stopped playing regularly in my early 30´s and picked it up again a couple of years after my accident (accident at 39, started playing regularly again at 41). I am now playing in a classic rock cover band. Hope the best for you. Keep it up!

            hi guys...im not sure what open tuning im using..i've experimented with making them up...i play by ear.i use 2 similr ones...one works for regular blues then detune one string for aminor blues.I'll describe better later...the guitar i use is made by chris fouke at www.industrialguitar.com he custom built it with the strings farther apart than normal too make picking seperate notes easier.i use a br8 boss 8tack recorder with built in amps and drums.then i record the bass lines i played and organ etc...then multitrack them all together...i don't have a video cam,thats why i used stills.at least it shows how i play though....the saying anything is possible just isn't true,but almost ANYTHING IS

                      man that is an AWESOME looking guitar! Bet it cost a penny to have him make it. I love that sound, you got talent dude!
                      You should get a cam on sale sometime and put video with it, we could learn from ya. I got a really good cam on sale at wally whirled for 26 bucks but never use it.

                            the guitar i use

                            the guitar i normally use ,called an electra slide ,costs 400buck..I straight on asked chris fouke if he'd sponser me with a donated guitar too sort of inspire me too play again.after he heard a couple songs i did on a. toys-r-us guitar, he said it would be a shame not too put a real guitar on my lap.Chris is a real cool guy, and makes some wicked cool axes.
