I recorded these tonight. The mood went back to the the 1970's-80's when clubs were full of dancers tearing it. I am able to travel through time. All I do is close my eyes and I am back there. I see, feel, smell, experience, it all just like it was all happening again. This one brought me back the Red Barn in Gurneville California. The place would be wall to wall hippies all smoking weed, drinking, sharing it with us, and the young women loved to braid our long hair. Those were some days! I had a real trio behind back then (guitar, bass, drums) and I just blew harp and sang. The 1 man band caught it tonight and I am so thankful to have discovered Spontobeat. ! Walter

I recorded these this afternoon with the 1 man band setup and a handmade acoustic guitar with a vintage dearmond soundhole pickup in it. Walter

I have gone back to playing my harp acoustically in the rack. The past few weeks were fun messing with the amplified sound but it just doesn't hold my interest like the acoustic sound. Walter

The black cat mojo guitar called my name tonight and I used it with my 1 man band. It was given to me by the late Paul Sessoms, owner of the black cat lounge in austin texas. Anyone living in Austin in the mid 80's will tell it was the craziest club in town. He gave it to me when we left austin 96. I played his club more than anyone and this was a going away gift. He had it made by a mojo man for me. It is an aluminum body resonator with kitchen sink drains, a funky japanese pickup (I think), has a spell on it and will only play when it calls me. Otherwise it will not tune up, crackles, or simply won't work at all. The action is set real high like a lap steel. I play the bass strings with the palm of my left had which holds a slide bar and works the other strings. It also has instructions for me to follow. It guided me to working with disabled children, building my own studio, and other things since I got it. Here are some pictures of it. It is a real deal magical box.

I ran my paper towel roll/shure57/ into a plug in amp simulator. As usual, all the words and music are made up on the spot and recorded. Walter

My wife and I went to the Lent fish fry at the local catholic church tonight. The cool part about it is there is never enough tables so you end up sitting wherever there is a seat. This reminds us of living in Europe. In the states tables are viewed as much more territorial to the first sitting there but the fish fry defies this rule. Tonight we ended up sitting with 4 elderly woman who ranged in age from 82-93. They still are independent and live together in a senior complex. We had a great conversation with them. The oldest was a real character. She has a $50 dollar bet going with two other seniors in their complex to who will die first. They have a routine everyday where they get together and check another day off on the calendar. I asked her what is the secret to living so long and she said to be awnry with a smile in your eye. These songs came out when we got home. Walter

I recorded this set this afternoon after reading the newspaper. I read the paper about once every few months and nothing changes. I don't watch the news or listen to the radio either. I get enough negative stuff just doing a day on this earth. Walter

A lot of spirits passed through me today as I played. This is the coolest part of spontaneously making up my words and music as I go along. I open my heart to the universe and some great spirits come by to tell and play their stories. There were a bunch today. I wonder why others aren't doing this approach? It is a real trip like no rehearsed one offers. Walter
