Well…summer time is here! Just in time for my summer road trip I was able to get a new guitar. I know, I know…my wife is completely thrilled! (LOL). I have to say that this one is pretty special…it is a Martin D-222 100th Anniversary Edition. The 100th Anniversary refers to the invention of the Dreadnought by Martin Guitars in 1916. Only 100 of these guitars were made and I got #46. Needless to say I’m stoked and cannot wait to start writing some new songs on it. You can check out the short video I made the day after I picked it up….just click the link below.
Also, stay tuned for “Road Trip” updates…I’m excited to share this experience with you. I’m making my way toward two gigs on July 10 & 11 (more on that later) and making some stops along the way. My first stop will be Graceland in Memphis, TN. Believe it or not I have never visited the home of the King of Rock and Roll. I can’t wait to eat some barbecue and see some places that are important to the history of music.
Let me know what you think in the comments below or let me know if you know places I should see in Memphis.
