2009-12-06T13:47:30+00:00 <![CDATA[Re: Peter "Madcat" Ruth]]> He started by talking about growing up in Chicago near the rail yard, first played a harp at age 11. He started doing a harp thing sounding like a train locomotive taking off, rolling down the line and stopping.
A muti talented guy though, played using a ukelele & harp, even played a nice version of "Come into my kitchen" playing slide on Uke with Harmonica that was great.
But by far my favorite was when he Played "St Jame Infimary" with his old Guild Baritone guitar, that thing sounded great.
Very nice thing for a professional performer to do, I realize he had a workshop afterwards that he was making money on but still nice.
The workshop was great as well. I gained the concept I couldn't get by just reading of different positions. He went through 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, & 12th. The only bad thing is I didn't bring pen and paper and there were no handouts but now I can probably get them off the net.

Oh and yeah, Jbone1 he spends a fair amount of time on the net I found out while talking with him, didn't get specifics.
Wonder why more players don't use his mic, looks like a more friendly to hold design, not as much bulk.
The way he explained the hand movements and how air works seems like you could get more sounds rather than the bigger mics.

2009-12-01T17:30:20+00:00 <![CDATA[Peter "Madcat" Ruth]]> I can't say I I've heard much, seen his mic's on ebay and such. Says he's a Grammy award winner.
He's putting on a free concert at Elderly saturday starting at noon. Then at 1pm-3pm he has a workshop.
Just wondering if I should go.
