November "Song of the Month"

Just in time for the Holiday's! If you start practicing now, you'll be ready for your get-togethers next month.

This month, I'm posting a new arrangement, "Here Comes Santa Claus" for the Banjo, Bass, Dobro, Fiddle, Fiddle tablature, Guitar (six string) and Mandolin.

Each arrangement is coordinated with each other so you can mix-and-match. This makes it easy and fun to play along with family and friends during the holiday season. If you have no one else to play/practice with, you can use one of the play-along mp3s below. There are several. The first mp3 is the complete arrangement. The following have some of the lead instruments removed so you can be in the band! The last mp3 is a Rhythm Backup tracks; no lead, just strumming guitars, mandolin and a bass. Note: this arrangement will be deleted December 31, 2014, so be sure you save a copy!

Banjo: In the tablature, the melody notes are indicated with a BOLD letter. Play these a little harder to let the melody surface. The second half o the arrangement, I've included my left hand fingerings, I (index), M (middle), R (ring), P (pinky).

Fiddle, Mandolin, Guitar: There are two arrangements. The first is the standard lead, the second is the harmony.

Fiddle Tablature: For fiddlers that can't read notes, a fiddle tablature version is included. If you're new to fiddle tab, see this link for the details.

Dobro: The arrangement is straight forward and is a good exercise in harmonizing the G major scale.

Bass: The top line is the vocal. The second line is the bass backup. The third line is the bass guitar tablature. There are some nice bass walks in this song!

Rhythm Guitar: This arrangement has some very nice western swing chords. I've included the chord diagrams if you're not familiar with this style.

21 String Harp Guitar Updates


The first production models of the 21 String Harp Guitar are complete and now shipping this Thanksgiving! This harp guitar is based on the 20 string Sullivan/Elliot design. I've made a couple of adjustments to the original plans.

1. The head stock has been modified to accept sharping levers.
2. There will be a full set of sharping levers on both, the sub-bass and the super trebles. They are black levers with gold levers on all "C" and "F" strings; similar to the set-up of a standard harp.
3. There are 21 strings; one extra sub-bass. Tuning for the basses are E, F, G, A, B, C, D. The tuning for the super trebles is E, F, G, A, B, C, D, E.

For Thanksgiving, there are three models available for shipping: Flamed Maple, Granadillo and Wenge. The next generation 21's will include Claro Walnut, Bocote and Cocobolo for the back and sides. ETA for those is around the end of January.

Tops for 2015 will include Douglas Fir, Sinker Redwood and beautiful Curly Sequoia. K&K are creating custom pickups for this model and a flight case is available. I make regular posts on my Facebook page as we make progress with the 21 string harp guitar. Be sure to visit and also sign up for my Newsletter. The links are at the top of this page.
