Iko Iko is a favorite fun song in our Monday jams. Steve Reynolds (multi-Grammy winning) sound engineer put together this short video of him on a short hike in Creede,CO area. Steve's philosophy is that you don't need to know how to play a 'formal' musical instrument to play music.

Does anyone know where I might be able to find the ABANA Anvils Ring, Spring 1999, vol 26, no 4?

ABANA doesn't have that volume for back order. I'm looking for an article related to a guitar stand. Page 27 to be specific...

Cheers,
Dave

FWIW quick note to everyone who happens to check on my posts once in awhile: I've started a formal business called Iron Rain Forge. Between now and May I'll be slowly moving my blacksmith posting to my new G+ account.

Looked up and there was this herd of 1.5 million elk walking past my shop door. For reference the snow is about 30" deep by my snowshoe tracks. #creedecolorado #blacksmith

A batch of courting candles waiting to be finished and 'plugged'. Another 5-6 to go. These are all done cold and after 2-3 you can really have a sweat worked up.

I'd like to take a second and thank the moderators +Mike Creuzer , +Aaron Armstrong , and +Benton Frisse for the great work on the Blacksmith Community. Keeping the wacko's at bay can be a chore I'm sure. /insert{Heavy Sigh}

My hat off to the community as well. This group is more understanding of the work by beginners; certainly a level of civility and encouragement that's absent in other smithing oriented social media.
