Handmade Music Factory - Not for the God-fearing

Posted on March 6, 2012 at 10:46am 18 Comments

Wow! I've just read a review of Mike Orr's Handmade Music Factory on http://www.southerngospelblog.com/archives/14370, and while it's a positive review, I was amazed to read this paragraph:

" This book has much of value to a Christian homeschooling audience, but would require several edits. Two handmade guitars involving bedpans as resonators are given names playing off of words not used in polite company. Each name is…

Yuri Landman's Triochord workshop

Posted on March 2, 2012 at 6:24pm 6 Comments

A friend of mine who knows I like to dabble in making my own guitars has brought my attention to a Dutch feller called Yuri Landman. He's an experimental performer and instrument maker, and he's holding a workshop only 15 miles from me in Bradford. During the workshop he will demonstrate making an instrument he calls a Triochord which everyone will make and get to take home.…

Bloodshot Records

Posted on February 11, 2012 at 8:46am 5 Comments

To all the good folks of the Nation,

Through a message from Uncle John, where he brought my attention to the marvelous Justin Townes Earle, I was moved to bore him about my love of Bloodshot Records. Whilst reminiscing and re-listening to some of the artists and music they've released over the last 15 or so years, I thought some of you guys on the Nation, if you were unfamiliar with the label, might find some interest in their stable of artists. So, if Uncle John doesn't mind, I…

Hi Hedley,

I finally broke a string on the lovely Ashton 3 string you made for me. I was just wondering which strings you recommend but buying to restring it?

Kind regards
Hari

Heard your version of the Bob Dylan's "Shelter From the Storm" and was blown away, this is the sleeper song on the album we all did together in colab, for someone who lived those days, during the seventies, and listened to that song over and over, I was brought back through the decades by your version of one of his best songs. Job well done, Downtown Vinnie sends his regards, a room away from SmartyPants, when he was playing your song i thought it was Bob Dylan himself somehow transported into Vinnies studio.
