For those who are home and didn't go to Reso-Summit, here's a swingy old-time style tune from fiddler Alan Kaufman.  My first dobro break is near the beginning, right after the fiddle head and the second one is @ 2:42, for those who like to cut to the chase.  Thanks for watching.

Down Yonder - Michael Bean with Kitchen Sink @ Cantab 11/1/11

Here's a fun old-time tune with twin fiddles and dobro.  My dobro solo is early in, just after the opening fiddle head - very little waiting! This was the opening tune of the opening set at the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge, MA, 11/1/11.  These are the kind of bouncy tunes that I love to play over!

Orville Johnson- I Cover the Waterfront

Here's another tune from the project I'm working on with my friend Casey McGill. It's mostly 30s Hawaiian stuff but this is a song from the same period that we did with the Hapa-Haole vibe and it works pretty well. Casey is singing and playing resonator uke, I'm on my Rayco Stage DeLuxe Hawaiian guitar and using a dash of Omnichord for the sparkles at the front and end.
