Djörk's Favorite tracks on alonetone

Cobalt Blue

Kinda rough. I’m uploading this mainly to share a guitar technique I’ve been working on. I’m wearing a slide on my picking hand and using it to alter pitches in single line phrases. There’s a lot more can be done with this technique that I’ve not yet explored. Didn’t like any of the available slides so made my own from a piece of bronze bushing material

very cool playing, love the bends where you let the tone blossom and then fade

Nice tune man. You always play well and creatively - but I have always loved the way you played the blues - you really have the heart and soul in it - something you can't be taught. Really enjoy your stuff. JunctionPA Tom

It's not a bad tuning. I have been stuck on 1/2 step down for a while now. You lose a bit of the tone, but it makes for a good dirty sound. My Jackson likes the tuning, but the strat copy and my les paul copy don't. I usually keep one of my acoustics and the strat in open G, the other acoustic in drop D, jackson in half step down high and low e to d, and my other electric in standard. Just run the whole spectrum of easy tunings lol.

Lovely sounds. I can't figure out how you're using the slide on the picking hand - or I can't here where it might be in use... but just as a piece of music and playing this is beautiful.

This is very good. P.S. I'd really love to hear you do something with a heavier Sabbathy/AIC-type riff underneath.

I like when people sneak in 9th's and diminished whatchamacallims . . . fingers in strange places + cool solo = awesome song.

Very emotional in its own way. Those added "bends" tell a story about being blind-sided and trying to maintain composure in a topsy-turvy world. could just be a demo of a new technique. ;)

I 2nd the request for a video. I'm assuming you are pushing the slide off the bridge toward the neck - correct? I've net ever heard of someone putting the slide on the picking hand before - but it sure sounds great!! Beautiful piece of work here Kirk!!

Awesome. I hadn't read the description and couldn't figure out what was going on here. Very David Gimour in both tone and quality. Would love to see a glimpse of what you're doing.

Blues Guitar for Christmas as a metaphor for saying farewell to the outgoing something (sound cool, eh?). P.S. Nothing to do with my favorite Michael Brook album with the same title - Cobalt Blue. ~bronze bushing~

Very nice Kirk....i'm a little confused on the technique....are you placing the slide on your..say...ring finger and still picking or are you holding the slide? You don't have to give up your secret if you don't want to, just curious ;)

Guest said

Not sure I understamd the difference or distinction that you are making between sliding and forgive me ..sliding...but hey it's not rough is smooth as silky and I suppose the similarity to a certain Charles' sound must be nodded at.Great work,much respect . Chris Jarvis. Merry Christmas.

Here's to the ingenuity to customizing the tool to work for you, rather than the other way around. Sounds really great!

I just invented a word for you, Kirk. "Bloohsy"
