Mic the Pic plays Banjo too in addition to all fine guitar fingerpicking at the start of some of the CDs.

David Eifling has got a great voice and plays his vintage Martin in the wonderful songs he did on the "Night on the Mountain" CD. You heard him on the song " Dark as a Dungeon" . Listen to the cd and you will hear him in a total of 4 songs.

You should not have any trouble recognizing his super voice.

Bob Pennington is the picker that did wildwood flower on  CD6.... The you also heard him do some great flat picking backing up Charlie Teas on the Song "Big Iron" on the Authenic Bluegrass CD.

Hey a new music store to check out in Springdale....

I was up to see TomH and that night drove down 471 that night and spotted Mountain Music but it was closed. Seein how I had full day coming the next morning I did not get to check their instrument selection.

Maybe TomH or TBarne could check it out for us since they stays up on the hill. Send us a post you guys. It about halfway between I540 and old 71 on 412.

Instrument Discussions / advice/suggestions requested

Don... I do have both a d-35 and a d-28. I bought the D-35 and the d-28 belonged to my brother. The D-35 plays real fast and has an enhanced bass response. this makes it pretty good for sing and playing alone.

The D-28 is a little harder to play but has a most beautiful tone. It's greatest response sound wise is in the mid to treble range. The "B" strng for example is the loudest. It has an incredible sound when played up on the upper parts of the fret board.

Recently I have taken to tuning the d-28 down to an open "D" and I think it sounds really good when played with a glass slide.

Notice the calendar icon in the upper right hand corner of the main page......

This is the calendar for Arkansas Bands and gigs. Right now we have Something Blue posting. Mark Hammond an origonal Pickoid, is in this Band so let's turn out and support them.

Then The Intruders and longtime well known Rock and roll Band led by my friend Chris Newell plays at Cajun's ...maybe the top gig in town.

David Nelson is in a Band too but he hasn't posted their schedule yet.

 I have been having problems recording clear cuts. I am getting some electrical static occsionally.  I can't pin it to anyone stepping on mic wires and I would not think it was caused by some listening thru the headphones and moving around.

I have even considered whether a cell phone next to the mixer might cause this static. Then it might be something else entirely.

Anyway does anyone out there with more knowledge know what the cause of this might be?
