Just a bit of promotion here...

I'm going into the studio tomorrow to start recording a new collection of acoustic songs that I hope to release later this year. And since I'm planning to use my new classical guitar on most of the tracks, I needed to stock up on strings, picks, and so forth. So I went to Matt Umanov Guitars over on Bleecker Street. Visiting an instrument store always brings me a lot of happiness, as I assume it does most musicians. And all the employess at Matt Umanov are attentive, knowledgeable, and kind, always willing to help. So I've listed the website below in case you're ever if the neighborhood. It's important to me to support my local music store because, as Jim Osman, friend of the sculptor Lawrence Fane, stated so eloquently, "You need raw materials to have hope."
