while it doesn't replace an Argapa soprano resonator on my wish list, having recently taken up tenor guitar, the thought of a wood-bodied resonator version makes my heart go all fluttery too.

hey, +John Walkenbach - just got this pic about an hour ago at Pike Place Market. even though her friend behind her looks more surprised, I think she takes the Nancy & Sluggo prize.

Manitoba Hal is one of my ukulele heroes. it's my hope that I'll be able to meet him in person before I shuffle off this mortal coil.

And jam with him, of course. I do blow a pretty mean harp.

"Tyranny is not an abstraction. Tyranny is not faceless government. Tyranny is not some anonymous end boss to be defeated once and then confidently forgotten. Tyranny is us. Tyranny is our inclination to punish and oppress the other. Tyranny is our willingness to abuse our neighbor for not being on "our team." Tyranny is mouthing platitudes about liberty while cheering its suppression. Tyranny is our capacity to rationalize exceptions to rights for our enemies. Tyranny is our willingness to dismiss violation of rights as unimportant or minimal."

New Arrival

Thursday evening I picked up a new baby. It's an early 60's Harmony tenor guitar. I've been wanting a tenor for some time, mainly just to be able to add the steel string sound texture to my shows.

I've got it tuned to what tenor players call "Chicago tuning" but ukulele players would most likely just call it baritone tuning. This allows me to use the chord shapes I'm already accustomed to, rather than learning a bunch of new shapes.

I'll no doubt put a more thorough posting up about it later (hopefully after fixing the "Publicize" feature on my Wordpress site) but I wanted to get the announcement out sooner than that.

(Sorry about the horizontal picture. Buffer doesn't seem to allow me to change that.)
