Still at it after 67 years.

Monday, February 17, 2020

I can still remember the first time I bought a Dobro on March 15, 1953. So many years have gone by since that day with shows, recordings etc along the way. I am 83 years old now and still playing every week at the studio with singer Jim Melvin who was in a movie with Elvis Presley and Ann Margaret entitles Viva Las Vegas. He was in several scenes as a guitarist and we have been playing with him for aver 25 years. We built a recording studio some 20 years ago and it is completely decked out with everything we need to record with. Very expensive mikes, recorders both analog and digital, drums, overhead mike stands, cordless head phones, glassed in control room, large rehearsal area etc, etc . We don't play out as often as we like to but still enjoy the weekly get together at the studio in his home. I started out playing pedal steel there in 1995 and actually helped in the construction of this facility. After about 2012, I switched to playing resos there because the steel guitars were getting too cumbersome to lug around all the time. Now I have five custom resos to play with in my old age . It's been a fun journey all this time and I hope to continue to do this as long as my health holds out.

I am also on Facebook and Twitter. Check out my blogs on my home page.. Been playing Dobro since 1951..Stage,Radio, Television,Recording Studio Specialist...country,blues...folk,..rock. ..also pedal steel guitarist with 2 Sho-Bud heavily modified pedal steel guitars...one single neck (3X8)..one OPRY Steel ( 10X8)..I.always reply to e-mails...at tom165mph@yahoo.com. ...numerous recordings on private labels...since 1965 . 4 different dobros..1934,1982 2012..2014... Have not played pedal steel in over a year. Burned out after 55 years of playing it. Now concentrating on getting the best sound with my four resos...And how different cones react to different strings. Curly maple VS mahogany VS all others... This could take a lifetime !! Did Opry touring package shows in 1966-1967..
