I know Dave and his music. He has a lot of firepower behind his
playing, very dynamic approach, so the "wow" factor would be high...I
think he also has some more ballad-like pieces, so it might prove to be
an interesting evening.
I've never seen a whole live performance from Dave, so you can tell
*me*, after the fact, if it was worth your while!
He is a super-nice guy, if this means anything.
I suspect he "discovered" you, Arlene, from seeing your info on my
website for the house-concert you so graciously hosted for me...
Well, thanks for the input, Larry. If I host him, I'll let you know how it
was. (But maybe I'll see you before then? I'm working on a trip to Puget
Sound guitar workshop this summer. I know Seattle is not Eugene... but I'm
planning a few extra days. Maybe there would be a way to meet up?)
As for Dave, it's possible he heard about me on your website, or possible
that he subscribes to some of the South Florida mailing lists, or maybe
both. One of the things he said when he contacted me was that I had been
"booking lots of his favorite players" and that he had been hoping to get up
to hear one of my shows, but his schedule wouldn't permit it. So, I'm sure
he was aware that you were here.
I've seen these things, and I suspect that they do help somewhat with
feedback on-stage, if it's an issue with a particular guitar, or a
particular set-up. I've never felt the need for this, or any other
kind of in-soundhole feedback-buster ...they're just guitar-mufflers,
and I don't mean the kind of muffler that you wrap around your neck in
the winter time (up north...you remember "winter" from your childhood,
My understanding is that the "need" for these things is as a feedback
buster. But the website claims that they do NOT muffle or mute the guitar
sound in any way, and according to the testimonials, some people use them
even when they are not micked (miced?) just because they look cool and their
guitars feel "naked" without them. I find it hard to believe it wouldn't
affect the sound... and anyway, feedback is not a problem for me since my
guitar doesn't even have a pick-up... I was just thinking that it was a
really cool looking thing and would "dress up" my D-18. But clearly I don't
need one. And yes, Larry, I do actually remember what mufflers are... and
mittens... and scarves... and ski pants... and thermal underwear... and
snowboots. Thank God I don't have a need for such things anymore. :)
