    I've gotten together with a guy playing and singing his own take on tradional acoustic blues.

    Making homage and enjoying the music of Robert Johnson, Son House, Rev Gary Davis, without being carbon copies, or archival purists.

    We just started playing together in the last couple months but we hit it off musically right away and are pretty pleased with what we have to offer.

    I recorded him in my living room with a Fostex FD8, and then used those reordings to learn the comlex tunes and dub the bass lines.

    I mixed down the tracks at LMS Studio on Hawthorne in PDX

    In a month or two we plan on spending a day in a LMS Studio and record live.

    For the forseeable future we are happy as a two piece.

    My ThunderChief bass and his slide and fingerpicking styles compliment each other and make a big enough sound.

    Here's the myspace page I made last night.
