Happy Friday! I've been busy recording new videos. I've started on the How to Play the "Stay Primal" album and will be releasing those in the next few weeks. I also did this demo video for the Stubby Bottle slide.
"When is the new album coming out?"
As promised, it will be released next week. We're still working on last minute details for the exact day. There will be two album release concerts next Friday and Saturday at Liquid Hero Brewery in York, PA!
SHANE SPEAL & THE SNAKES Stay Primal album release party:
Liquid Hero Brewery, 50 E North St, York, PA 17401 Friday, Oct. 6 from 7-10pm and Saturday, Oct. 7 from 5-8pm
The Saturday show will also be Liquid Hero's 6th anniversary! Special small batch brews will be available.
The album has four different album covers. Three have been revealed. The fourth will be revealed at the album release party!
Look for another newsletter very soon with a link for buying the album.
In the meantime, check out the latest at www.StubbySlide.com including that vid posted above. I also have two of the Mojobone slides remaining with some new versions hopefully arriving next week.
More very soon! Stay Primal! Shane Speal
Bone & Wood by Mojobone - Two left from original stock
A limited run of handmade guitar slides by Randy Bretz.
Randy Bretz of Mojobone Works creates these in his Pennsylvania shop. He's legendary in the cigar box guitar circles. Rarely seen...often found posting photos of outlandishly carved bone artwork on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/MojoboneWorks
Bone slides are the old Delta Blues standard for dry, mournful and distinct tones. It's less of a sliding sound and more of a hollering noter that makes the string ring. And wood is earthy. Quiet. Subtle. Perfect for classical guitars.
