Scheerhorn Guitar recording

OK now that it's under way, I'm working with Tim Scheerhorn & Randy Kohrs on a recording about Tim , his guitars & the effect it's had on the reso world. The proposed players are Tim Scheerhorn, Randy Kohrs, Rob Ickes, Andy Hall, Sally Van Meter, Lou Wamp, Justin Moses, Billy Cardine, Mike Witcher, Bruce Boughton, Jimmie Stewart & me. Only Scheerhorn instruments will be used, his reso-guitars, lap steel, the one banjo & the one flat top.Five or six cuts are being worked on now with the rest after the holidays. The players were told to bring any type tune they want, nothing barred.
