Blues For Ronnie Earl

Ronnie Earl--the man from Rego--just happens to be one of the most soulful players out there.  We're delighted to play one for him.  Check out Blues for Ronnie Earl.

Ronnie Earl is one of the great blues guitarists, made greater by his humble nods to those whose spirit he admires, in songs like "Blues for Otis Rush"; "Blues for Martin Luther King"; "Blues for the Homeless"; etc.

This instrumental is a tribute to his spirit, written and performed with THP's own humble nod to his classic, soulful style.

The next acoustic tune is live!

Keb' Mo's original version of "Angelina" is such a lovely little ditty that we just had to make her ours.

Bull's Bourbon Blues

So it begins...

"Bull's Bourbon Blues," the first song off the new acoustic blues album, Bare Bones, is live now.  Listen here.

The song is written by Mr. Bull "the Michael" LoBue, who sings and plays rhythm guitar and harmonica on the track, and features Marlon on a lap steel that he built with his very own hands.

The next song to be released is Keb' Mo's "Angelina."  Look for it next week, August 19th!

One Week

The slow release of the new acoustic album, Bare Bones, begins next Friday with the original tune, "Bull's Bourbon Blues," written by THP's own multi-instrumentalist, Michael "the Bull" LoBue.

We'll have Bandcamp, Soundcloud, and ReverbNation links up and running.  (And you'll be able to download the new song for free on Bandcamp.)

And then, a week from next Friday, there will be a second song.  And you'll just have to come back to see what it is....

Guitar Practice

If only this video had been around when I was learning guitar.  It would have saved me so much time.
