Check the Carvin site, you can build one for way less than 3k. (That's why I went Carvin, pretty much half of the price of an ESP or Mayones custom.) Plus they have a tremendous rep for building guitars, just resale values are off since they are custom jobs. This means if you find a used one, you're probably getting a heck of a guitar for cheap!

The one I'm building I didn't go for any fancy maple tops or anything. Spent whatever extra I budgeted on neck wood and a few features. It's when you start to go for the exotic woods that the price goes up. $400 or so for a quilted maple top alone.

I usually don't have this fast of a turnaround for a song I just wrote, but this one came together quickly and I'm really pleased with how it came out. The arrangement just fell into place easy, and the fellows I did this one with are top-notch players. Last week I put up the acoustic demo, here's the full song work up.

Thanks so much for sharing this. Two years of grade-school piano lessons and a semester of music appreciation in college don't exactly make me a connoisseur of music, so I can only appreciate your work in a very simplistic way; but I really enjoyed it.

Thanks. I'm glad you liked it. I sometimes wonder if anyone listens. I know there is so much out there and everyone's time is limited, so I really appreciate when someone takes the time to listen.

That's also good you appreciate in a simplistic way since I only know how to play very simply! I have been fortunate to be able to play with some people whose ability far exceeds mine and they make things sound way better than I ever could.

Here is the finished version of the other acoustic demo. It also came together really nicely I think.

Thanks dude. That means a lot. I try to learn something new each time and make each one a little better than the last. Plus I have been fortunate of late with other musicians that share in the same taste I have in helping me shape the finished product.

For the most part it isn't too hard to attain. Keeping it afterwards is what tends to be elusive.

Thanks for listening.

Getting sick of me yet? Here's another one I just put the finishing touches on. It is a classic country/ folk/ a little bluegrass kind of sound.

Yeah, I can feel that too. I think in part because the finger picked guitar and mandolin were done by a gent from England, the sound is more Irish/Welsh than American bluegrass due to his probable influences in style.

I have another song that's folk-y and vaguely Irish in sound that is nearly finished that we did together. It was actually the first draft for this song with a different drummer and in a different key. For some reason it came out bouncy and upbeat and unfitting for these lyrics, but the music was so good and the vocal melodies suitably different, so instead of scrapping it I wrote all new lyrics and got two songs out of it.

You sure can. Most of my links are to soundcloud. So post away, it will be nice to have someone new posting here.

Alright, one more time. I swear I'm almost done. I only have two more that I'm actively working on and then I'll quit foisting my rambling on the masses!

But until then, here's a slow-burn country ballad that's nice and twangy!

I Miss The Fire

I really liked them both--thanks for giving us the privilege of hearing your work.

I especially liked the instrumental bit just before 3:00 or so in "Flood of Tears", and the way you muted the instruments at the end--it seemed to leave the listener with that wistful/regretful impression evoked by the song. Also, it's pretty awesome that you have back-up singers now.

You surprised me by using your speaking voice for part of "I Miss the Fire", but in a good way. You also did a great job of capturing a feeling that a lot of people in LTRs experience.

Songwriting ability is such a mystery to me--it always amazes me that musicians can reuse the same notes over and over and not have every melody end up sounding like "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star."
