Well, we just started a sabbatical for the first time in years… we are staying in Idaho. We flew out here about two weeks ago. This is my first time visiting this state. A few days after we arrived, I played during the offertory at the Intermountain District Assembly of the Church of the Nazarene held inside of the College Church of the Nazarene in Nampa, Idaho… It was a hit!

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

Well, While I was back in Costa Rica I became an Endorsing Artist for Deering Banjos and ordered a Customized Deluxe 6 string model. I ordered it with an upgrade from the standard Mahogany wood to being an all Walnut Banjo! It is both LOUD & beautiful!

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”
Wow, this has been a great trip around the country… lots of beautiful places. Dad and I headed out towards Southern California and went through Colorado with it’s majestic Rockies where we stopped to visit a good friend just outside Denver. We then traveled down into New Mexico and stayed with some really great folks in Santa Fe. They’re more like family now.
Afterwards, we continued on to Arizona where dad wanted me to see this place called Sedona, a gorgeous colorful town he remembered from years ago. So me, being “resident navigator” of this entourage, found a “shortcut” on the map. Well, at least that’s Continue reading “BIT-16”
