I've got a 2 part question. Do you play with the pulp of your fingers and thumb (rather than with nails or fingerpicks) and if so, how do you get such a bright tone?
Hi David, No, I don't use picks or fingernails. Just the fleshy part of my fingers. I really don't have any secret for the tone- it just comes out that way. So I guess it would have to be the attack? Hope that helps and thanks for asking.
Hi Doug. Any chance of seeing you at The Stables in Wavendon UK (Cleo Laine and the late, great Johnny Dankworth's music venue - recently voted the 4th best venue in the UK) sometime soon? We would simply love it if it could be arranged. Have recently 'discovered' you on Amazon Prime Music; where the hell have you been all my life!DOUG MACLEOD responded on 11/23/2015 Next question
What do I need to do in order to arrange a show in the Paso Robles/San Luis Obispo (CA) area. We have several new venues and a music-starved populace. Maybe my LPFM radio station will be up and running for a pre-concert interview.
I'm willing to do legwork . . . let me know.
