The tropics are really hot at the moment and I have to come into the house and the Air Conditioning about 2 PM.
I won’t allow myself to enjoy an adult beverage until 5 Pm so I sit and play the Ramuda for several hours almost every day of late.
I have been working on improving my “own style” of a combination of strumming and finger style using thumb and fingers.. ……and Damn…I think I have been making the Ramuda sound better than ever. Dee has come from other rooms and said “Hank, that’s really good. Would you do some of that at my next gig?”
Now, I am not one to play in public, but I do think I have reached a new level in my playing…. It has only taken me till I’m 71 and spent a small fortune on guitars…..SE LA VIE !!… and Gracias Santa Cruz Guitar Company.
Maybe …Just maybe…If I can figure out how , I might try to record….but only for this group of trusted Amigos.

Double drop D. Can lend some very nice texture and warmth for hours of confidence building and enjoyment.
Get behind the mic

You know, there are some good little mics you can plug into your iphone or ipad that do a darn nice job of getting a good recording. Go for it!
Lots o’ SCGC guitars! But never ask which is my fav

Blue Snowball mic, under $50USD, on omnidirectional mode. Definitely airy and clear, and it plugs directly into your computer, so dead easy to use.
