Hi Slaid! I first heard you on WFUV, first saw you at Outpost in the Burbs in Montclair, NJ, my favorite show was when you and Scrappy played the Four Corners festival In Pagosa and I am very much looking forward to seeing you tomorrow at the Saxon! My sister and 87 year old mom were coming down from NM to see you,too, but mom got sick, so they had to cancel. She suffers from acute dementia and I was wondering if you could play "Gone" for me tomorrow? The song kills me, but it also makes me feel better knowing somebody else understands.how terrible it is having somebody you love not know who you are.....This long time fan would sure appreciate it. Thanks for sharing your music. Holly
Hi Holly. Sorry to hear about your mom. I haven't done "Gone" in a while, but I'll start brushing up on it right now. See you tonight.
Hello from Phoenix. I hope you will play here soon, maybe a gig at the Musical Instrument Museum. Anyhow, do you still sing Jenny's Alright, and was that based on anyone? It also seems you capo for Broke Down and other songs on the second fret but in concert recordings I don't hear you tune down the low E. Are you using a partial capo that opens up the low E string only? My friend Harvey Reid from York Maine uses all sorts of those capo configurations. Thanks.

Just found you and found the chords to "Rust belt fields".
Definitely the music that I like. I'm adding it to my secret little compilations that I sing at night for catharsis.
