Hello everyone,

We’ve been back home in Costa Rica for a while now, and have been very busy.

Showing off my D-6 to the guys.
Backing up Rick for a song.

Before we flew back to Costa Rica the first week of March, we met with some friends at a Cracker Barrel for lunch. While waiting for them to arrive, I took out my banjo and sat in one of the rockers and played. That turned out to be a great way to draw a crowd and meet some very nice people.  Continue reading “BIT-38”

This was my first time attending!  And like I said in my last BIT, it’s kind of like a dream come true to go as an Artist! Continue reading “BIT-37”

BIT 20 – April 23 2008

Here I am again on TV-45!

Hello everyone, I hope you’re all doing well.  The last few weeks have been very intense.  Unfortunately, two days after I wrote my last BIT, on April 6th a dear friend of mine, Buck Buchanan, passed away.  He was like my 2nd Dad… I’ll sure miss him.

The TV interview at “The Good Life TV 45” went well.  It turned out that It was the very first Spanish program that they had ever done!  The program went well and It was nice to be back there again. Continue reading “BIT-20”

Before we left the area I also played a concert at the Atlanta Christian College (NOTE: Now Point University) in McKinney’s Coffeehouse. After the show I had a really nice time speaking with their Guitar Professor and some of the students about the country style fingerpickin’ techniques I use. Continue reading “BIT-18”
