Butchered this one from memory, my parents used to do this for
weddings and shows. Played on a 1935 Oahu acoustic I got from Tom
Warner a couple years ago.....sadly only the 2nd time I have had time to
pull it out. D tuning.

Here's another tune from my upcoming book of solo acoustic arrangements for Weissenborn or Dobro ... the Tears For Fears classic, "Everybody Wants to Rule the World.
I can play it but haven't worked it up to performance quality yet so this is MIDI output of the music in D6th tuning (same as open D with the 2nd string raised to B: D B F# D A D (hi to low). This tune has a bit more guitar-like flavor than most of my steel arrangements because you hold bar positions in place while the right hand plays triplet figures - it's almost like a jig in that respect. All the songs in the book are in standard notation and tablature.read more »

This is my favorite carol. I recorded this a few years ago for a compilation Christmas album. I sing the song and play the guitar and overdubbed the dobro in the background. The extended outro is all dobro instead of reprising the vocal. It's a haunting song and the dobro accentuates the feel, IMHO. I hope you enjoy it. Merry Christmas! :)

This is a demo of Lindamon #16, "Big Red" a quilted sapele guitar. Thanks for listening!

Another demo of Lindamon #14, this one in standard tuning. I thought the low E made the guitar a little more heavy on the low end than it is in real life. I have to say the highs don't sound as good on the recording as they do live, I'm not sure why that is. The guitar really has a piano like feel!

Here is a song my buddy wrote, that we recorded for my wife to walk down the aisle to at our wedding. We recorded it the day after Resosummit 2013 in central Alabama. I used my 2005 Beard MA6 with a brand new Legend cone and strings that Paul put in two days earlier.
