'46 Indian Chief
Lately there has been a LOT of neck shimming around here. This is my homemade parts Tele…and I could’t get the action low enough for my taste, so into the neck pocket I slid a personalized shim!
Someone once said that a business card is the proper thickness for a shim.
And YES, this does mean I have my own business cards! :P
Happy 82nd Birthday, Johnny Cash
(February 26, 1932 - September 12, 2003)

Audio Tip: Rabbit Foot - Tip My Hat. The new single from the upcoming ‘Dark Tales’ EP Release.
Voodoo infused, African flavoured, Swamp Rock Boogie Blues.
Wild and Beautiful.
West African and homemade drumbeats combine to form a back beat that is simply irresistible and cannot be denied (British Blues Awards nominee 2013 – Best Instrumentalist, Carla Viegas). More than just drum, Carla’s world class vocals soar between, over and all around the music, glued together by the fiery, soulful and rhythmical guitar stylings of Jamie Morgan, also adding vocals for when things need to get really ‘low-down’.
Add along some serious songwriting chops – the first song Jamie actually penned was shortlisted for a British Blues Award for Best Original Song in 2013 – and the sky is the limit.
Come and see these guys, you may not know how to quantify or label their music but it won’t matter, you’ll be swept up and moved along, grinning and swaying all the way.
Johnny Cash - A Boy Named Sue
Acquaint (or reacquaint) yourself with a true American classic.
