Folks, this album is so much a dream coming true for me, nothing less!!!
During November and December 2012 me and some friends recorded new material, my own stuff and some old blues classics in our rendition!



I'm in the company of my excellent blues buddies who plays various instruments creating a good mix of acoustic blues.

Back in the summer of 1999 I first heard Eric Bibb’s album “Spirit & The Blues”, released on Opus 3 Records, and it totally and utterly changed the way I look upon and perform music. Everything I did turned acoustic and I’ve stayed in the acoustic blues realm ever since.
Now being a recording artist on the Opus 3 Records label is something I’m extremely happy, thankful and proud about.

The CD booklet has 16 pages filled with info and pics..

yeah I visit your youtube channel with regularity... I pinged you for a reason, though: I dig your slide licks and am hoping you'd sell me a tab of your favorite (Open G) slide licks or something like that... I want to wrap up and take home with me some of the licks I've heard you play... any chance i could coax a lesson out of you on favorite slide licks in Open G? I'm totally serious... will compensate accordingly, too.

Well, I'd surely appreciate to be able to teach some of what I know.
I do from time to time but I can only do this in the old fashioned way, you know, sitting down and showing note for note how I play!! Passing it on..

A bit tricky but I might make a DVD one day, many have asked over the years..

Or, fly over to Sweden!! :mrgreen:

Congratulations, John. You must be a proud man. You have always been most generous in sharing your techniques here on the forum - I know I've learned from watching your fingers and slide at work. You deserve success here and may it come to you in a big way. :D Peace.

Thanks Ric, and yes I'm very proud about this. The album turned out quite ok but the label has been a dream of mine for years!
They've already decided to record a second one!!! That feels great!
