Angeline the Baker

Improvised acoustic guitar / singing. Recorded on phone. A bluegrass standard, but I'm playing it as a stream of consciousness improvisation. Usually these days my playing is pretty much by the book, but here I was thinking about ecstatic / outside players like John Fahey and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. No patching in. Only one take. No overdubbing. Get it right in the moment. Be real and accept flaws as long as they don't spoil anything important. [more inside]

Dark as a Dungeon

An old Merle Travis song that I learned years ago when I first started getting into bluegrass. Another chance to break in the new resonator guitar, and do some fun chorus harmonies. [more inside]

Sailor's Psalm - 5-piece acoustic

I wrote this awhile back. This is the band performing it at our buddy Todd's house (I'm the fiddler player). I was trying to go for something like a ballad, early 19th century U.S. south, maybe. I think it's pretty. He's singin about drownin hi'self, if you were wonderin.

Diamond Joe

Low quality stomping country music recorded drunk and presented here in it's straight-from-the-desk unmixed format. Came out pretty good. Nice rattly drums.
