Michael, I've been listening to your music and I was blown away! Gourd on Gourd hit a nerve , that's the sound I aspire to.All of my music is improvised, spur of the moment stuff.

You're blowing my mind. You're doing some real interesting stuff!

Enjoyed Phrygian Enchantment 1 very much, touch of the Robbie Basho's about it.

Is there to be a No. 2

Hey Bucko, just listened to your sound files. (Rust, Phrygian and Sliver) Great stuff, each and every one, always a pleasure when you post, many thanks!Grin.gif

The band I mentioned was Durutti Column. I'm glad you haven't heard of them because you'll like and be surprised by their complexity. You can find quite a bit of their stuff on You Tube. Vini Reilly is an amazing guitarist and I think you'll like him. Again, my husband and I really, really like your work.

I just wanted to say hi and let you know that another Shreveport citizen has joined FOTMD. It appears that we both have aquired the Yocky electric dulcimer. Great stuff!

Alright, thanks for the invite. I've only been pickin on the dulcimer for three years, but I am better at that than I am at social networking via the web. I'm learning though.

Bucko -Thank you for being a friend (wow - that could be a song...naw!) Seriously, I've returned to the dulcimer after 30(+) year on and off relationship. Your skill and talent are helping me to keep the renewed fires burning. Thanks and keep on doing what you do...so well.- Scooter
