Flatt Rabbit performing Donna Hughes' song "What I'm Looking For" last night at Sally O'Brien's in Union Square, Somerville MA. Sorry about the audio, a hand-held recording from the audience. Bassist Tom Fitzgerald and Banjoist Grace Van't Hof singing on this one. That's my awesome MA-6 (#96), which I don't play enough!

Even Santa Claus Gets the Blues - written by Marty Stuart

3:33 minutes (4.07 MB)

None of the Above is a bluegrass band based in the Mt. Airy, North Carolina area, I've played with them for a year or so, and this is our version of a Marty Stuart holiday tune.  I'm playing a 2004 Harlow that I bought from a forum member just a few months back, and I'm really pleased with the recorded sound of the guitar.  I hadn't heard the finished mix until today, and while I can always critique my playing, I'm really liking the old Harlow.  This is my first attempt at posting anything other than a classified ad, so apologies in advance if I mess this up.   

There's also a youtube link:

Hope you enjoy this,

I haven't posted anything for quite some time but was in the mood today. I love Mike Auldrige's arrangement of this song and couldn't rest until I learned it. I'm no Mike A. but hope everyone enjoys. I'd like to hear what you think.
