Mike -- I sent you a PM with CD information.

Stringsinger -- I grew up with ten-inch Burl Ives records, learned all his songs.

My playing now has several technical problems due to a left ring finger permanently bent at a thirty degree angle. I get ugly buzzing because I can't stretch it enough to reach the frets. I get strings accidentally muted because I can't arch the finger enough to clear the strings in some positions. I can't change chords fast anymore and there are chords I can no longer play at all. It's this kind of stuff that is driving me toward considering accompanists -- I like spare, but I don't like ugly, unintended sounds. The flip side is I don't want someone else's vision cluttering up what I do (and it's hard to give up being in charge). Of course, with the right collaborator, it could just be fun. So I'm looking around.
