Andy, that's kind of a yes and a no, insofar as I have a lot of recorded stuff online, but not in the sense that I actually tried to do a collection of nice quality tunes per se. Most of the stuff is more like I'll get a PM or email from someone... "Hey Dadfad, I'm having a problem with this Son House tune. Do you think you could play it for me straight with no lyrics or anything so I can hear what he's doing?" or "I'm trying to figure out Blind Blake's "Diddie Wah Diddie" and it's pretty tough. Can you help me out?" and then I'll do a round or two and then explain what I did while doing it again slower or something, using a cheap dictation mic into my office computer with a guitar hanging on my wall here. (I'm doing a John Jackson tune someone asked for some help on right now.) I have a lot of stuff like that on several SoundClick bandpages, but not much where it's an actual effort to do a quality recording of practiced material or anything.

About the closest to something like that I have online is a couple of things where not long ago I was asked by a band doing a CD if I would do an extended solo acoustic-slide intro that they could then have faded into their more contemporary full-band tune that would be on the CD project they were doing. They actually bought me studio-time in a fairly expensive studio in my area, which was then transmitted to their studio, and their producer gave me a copy of the intro-final I'd recorded for them. (I stole most of the licks from an old Blind Willie Johnson tune. laugh.gif ). And a few years back a guitarist I know (who had placed second three times and third-place once in the National Fingerstyle Championships in Winfield, Kanasas) asked me if we could do a duet together on a tune at a concert performance in a college auditorium nearby. The concert was recorded professionally for public-radio broadcast and possible future CD release. Again, I was given a copy of it. Those are among the things I've copied to SoundClick also.

So like I said, I have a lot of stuff online, but really most of it is more... utilitarian in nature as opposed to an actual effort to do my best and record it and present it properly like you've done with your tunes. But if you want to hear any of that kind of stull I'll post some links.

(And thanks for asking! smile.gif )
