Produced in conjunction with Frank Duncan and Produnktion Records
(NYC Drum Works, Percussion Works) Fret
boasts an impressive roster of musicians
playing an intriguing variety of stringed instruments, including Hiram
on 6-string, 12-string and slide
guitar, Nunzio Signoire
vintage 6-string Gibson, Mr. Bill Simms
on his National Steel, C Nausbaum
mandolin, Nat Harris
on guitar and Doug
on his custom baritone guitar.
This collection is a journey "off the beaten
path" capturing the soulful essence of Delta blues, Appalachian folk,
and the roots of rock, bluegrass, swing and shuffle. The rare performances
were recorded in a musical context with all of the raw energy and "happy
accidents" that make a track live and breath.
The phrases are tempo-tuned for easy sequencing, and most are provided
in several tempos for flexibility. They're divided into four or eight
bar patterns and free-style riffs which can be strewn together in countless
ways to create your own unique solos.
The vast musical experience represented in these fine performances will
bring your tracks to that next level of quality and musicality.
