MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all!!!

Since the question was asked about the instruments used on the cd:

1. For "O TANNENBAUM, I used a self built 12 string box guitar:

2. For "WE THREE KINGS", I used my fanned fretted Padron 4 string:

Double CBG goodness! Cool Ben. I need to build a tenor CBG or canjo.

 

My track is solo 3-string fretless (all slide), tuned GDg. I based it on the Disney version of the tune.

Comment by Ben on December 14, 2010 at 3:15pm

BenBob, I was thinking the same thing. I'll get things started off. I "cheated" on my drums and used my Yamaha keyboard for them. Washburn AB10 acoustic bass. The slide guitar is my 6-string Cohiba lapsteel played acoustic tuned DGDGBD. The strummer in the back is a 4-string Padron Tenor tuned CGDA - traditional 23" scale. I'm using a Bach Strad 180S-37 trumpet and a King 606 trombone also. I think that covers it. Enjoy!

Been listening to the Christmas album and loving it! One thing is missing though... performer notes. I'd love to hear anything the contributors want to add, especially what instruments/tunings were used for the tracks.

 

Could we collect any notes here?

Comment by BenBob on December 14, 2010 at 11:44am

THANKS SHANE! I'm downloading those joyful tones right now.
