What’s new? Well, it was a busy summer for one thing, too busy to keep up with everything. Like my homepage for instance! But better late than never as the saying goes. These updates fall under the icon “what’s new?” so I think it appropriate to start with what really is new (like my new acoustic guitar!) and then look back briefly and give a nod to the many adventures the last five months. The guitar is a Larrivee L-10E, a very well-crafted instrument from Canada. It has a wonderful sound, great feel, and balanced tonality. Not only this, but it looks beautiful! As with any new instrument, current life with my Larrivee is a kind of mutual “getting-to-know-each-other” — an on-going tuning in and feeling process. From the first strum I can say without a doubt it is an absolute joy to play and will certainly look forward to the secrets it has to share and reveal.
As for the events, starting from where the last update left off(Romania) beginning with the first of the summer events in Lisbon, Portugal, the photos proceed choronologically through the recently-finished USA tour. Enjoy!
