I've posted home-brew videos of me doing these songs before, but a few weeks ago, some local guys who run a studio asked me to come in to record a few videos. I was happy with how they came out. Playing the J-35 in both.

"Where the Wabash Meets the Ohio"

Very good David, I love the percussive left hand and the songs are full of soul, great stuff.

Thanks for the kind words. My website isn't down. I changed it and never thought to change the reference to it here. Better go do that.

The new website is https://davidhannersmusic.com

Great vids! I too am fascinated by your lefty guitar strung upside down. I can only assume you learned to play on a right-handed guitar turned upside down and then just strung a lefty in reverse? It makes the sound very unique as you hit the treble strings with the downstrokes first. Nice recording setup too. Looks like a Shure 55 and SM57 - classic.

I like the songs a lot. Your style is very rhytmic with great lyrics and melodies.

P.S. I've got an SM57, but have never used it on acoustic, might be time to try it...

Thanks. Yeah, I taught myself to play in high school. My late brother had an old blond Stella that he left behind when he went off to college. I got a book out of the library -- something like "The Glen Campbell Guitar Method" or something like that -- and looked at the chord diagrams to figure where to put my fingers. The guitar didn't have a pickguard so I had no clue which way was "up," so I held the guitar the way that felt comfortable as a left-hander. To show you how dense I was, it was awhile before I realized I was holding the guitar upside down.

My style, such as it is, just comes from years of trying to figure out what works for me and sounds natural to me. Lots of hammer-ons and pull-offs on the bass strings.

I never did learn to play like Glen Campbell. Then again, few could match that guy....

Very nice songs and a crisp, relaxed style - reminiscent of some of Steve Earle’s acoustic songs when he uses a pick.

Hey David! Enjoyed both songs a bunch. Like your playing style, the instrument and the songs. Something to feel good about for you. Well done.[thumbup] --- Hall

Thanks. Yeah, check out a J-35. Love mine. Got it in 2016. I've had a couple of J-45s in the past and the '35 can more than hold its own. The only modification I've done (aside from switching out the pickguard and tuners) is to replace the Tusq saddle with a Bob Colosi bone saddle.

Cool thanks for the info...I have always loved the look and sound, I have a 45 and like it as well but damn that sounds sweet.
