Odds and Ends
This is my first try at a Dragon speech. I’ve had a difficult time typing and my daughter taught me this program. I hope that it will make me stay a little more efficient and help me keep my blog up-to-date. To update you on my medical condition I have seen small bits of improvement but my close vision is a major problem and precludes me from doing as much as I want to. Still despite all “Acquisition Syndrome is in progress as is my mandolin coloring book. Also I hope to start a mandolin duet CD with Darin Aldridge this fall. As far as I know it will be the only mandolin duet CD that also features storytelling and has a bit of generic medical advice. I guess you wouldn’t expect the world’s only physician bluegrass fiction writer to come up with anything else. In addition, in January Ihope to start a mandolin instruction book based on my lessons with Wayne Benson. It will be co-written with him. The ideas in this book, a practical theory for the mandolin, are based on Wayne’s mandolin genius not mine. I am gonna put to paper what he shown me over the years and have him edit it to be sure I get it right. I do think he has a wealth of knowledge that needs to be passed on down the line. I’m his only student who has taken on the task to do this.
