Buddy Guy Signs My Guitar

No big headlines here but how cool of Mr Buddy Guy to take the time and sign my Fenderstrat.   This is my main axe so I am thrilled to play it everywhere I go with his name on it!

River’s Edge Song in Memphis Video

I’ve had the pleasure of touring back and forth from Chicago to Memphis many times throughout the year.  The last time I was there I shot video for one of my original songs “Rivers Edge” which I recorded about Memphis on my “Drink My Wine” CD.  I took several footage, shot with a Go Pro camera, from different places and put together a music video using Adobe Premier Pro.  I have always wanted to do this and with a little research and lots of You Tube help I was able to produce my own music video.  Enjoy!
