    if there is no a sea, if there are no rapanas, if there are no figs with hearts like wounds, if there are no eyelids, out of sadness salty, if there are no surfs, if there is no excitement, if there are not roughened by the rocky palms, if there are no moons, if there are no harbors, if there is no a shattering from the hubbub fire, if there are no smiles reaching The God, if there are no crabs, no fish, no shells, if there is nothing to taste and see ... ... make a raft out of your soul and let it go to the distant missing sights and lips. And even if the real world to judge you: know - then there it will have. Then it will be.

    Hi there. It is Easter in my prat of the World. I'd like to share with you a studio record of the title song from my second studio album. If you are interested I will post a translation of the lyrics (not written by me). I would appreciate your comments (in youtube too). Music is mine, I sing it and I play all the guitar parts. Enjoy:

    "Relaxing" - that's the least I've ever been looking for when I recorded that whole work in that pitch. My idea is: I hope (because it has been proven many times and it is verifiable) using that pitch my music will be heard better in that dimension I live in and may be it will echo in some other dimensions to be heard by other living creatures...

    Let's figure it out like that: we play music using some pitch. This pitch we calculate using measuring units. In that case the units are the second and the number of the string oscillations. How we can know if The Creator used the same measuring units. What is "a second" for God?

    Matrer of fact I did this in A=432Hz to experiment. And I am glad I did this. They say every tone has 12 harmonics in this pitch and in A=440Hz every tone has only 8 harmonics. So the harmony is not complete in A=440Hz.

    Well, that Martin HD-28 has a long story and I know only the last part of it... One morning about four years ago while drinking my first coffee I noticed this instrument in Dream guitars. May be you know that site. The price was low for such a class instrument and I did not hesitate. When the guitar arrived it was in a bad state... The case was misshapen due to a water damage. Stung mold! The guitar too... The frets bulged 3mm. above the fretboard, there was some ugly stick under the nut and the keys were terribly worn out... This was a bad surprise. There were some strings on it. I started to change the first string, took of the old one, putted the new high E and started to turn the key without checking the tone. In a moment I just picked the string and it was exactly the E on the tuner. Said "hmm..." and took off the B string, putted a new B and did the same - turned the key without checking the tune. When I picked it was exactly a B... ! I did exactly the same action with the G string and the result was exactly the same! I was amazed!!! The guitar tuned itself the first 3 strings!!! Few days after I sent the instrument to my luthier, he did what was needed - refret, new nut&saddle&pins, changed the tuners with Gotoh 510 (I had to put some open gear Gotoh, but I don't regret the 510s), did a good set up, installed a K&K Triniti Mini System inside the guitar and this was a resurrection. The instrument started to play well. I bought a new hard case and sprayed inside the guitar many times some Bill Blass to eliminate the mold smell. That Bill Blass worked well. I wrote some e-mails to Dream Guitars to ask who sold them that instrument to ask some questions, but Paul Heumiller's answers were very "lubricous" and I couldn't get any information about the previous owner and the previous life of the guitar... A year and a half after the frets started to stumble and to scratch my left hand. The top collapsed and I sent the instrument again to the luthier. he filed the frets and installed a "bridge doctor" inside the guitar. And it was good again. In April 2018 me and my wife went to Grece. I played one day with some friends when my wife came to ask some money to pay the stay. I told her to get the money from my bag, but she didn't want to stir it my bag and asked me to do i myself. So I told her to get the guitar, and she grabbed the strap (instead of the neck...) The guitar felt down from about 1m on the ground and broke in two places... 25-30 cm. the top peeld off from the side below the bridge and the head broke away... I remained silent, did not say nothing... Just called my luthier on the cell phone... He was not at home - it was his wife who told me that he is out of the country and will be back in 4 days... I told her to tell him to call me immediately after he gets back home. My wife was so confused and ashamed that she told me if the luthier can not fix the fractures she would buy me the same guitar. I just told her that this is not possible first because there are no two same guitars and because she can NOT buy me even the strings because she doesn't know nothing about it... We returned the next day home I sent the guitar to the luthier and he fixed everything OK. After I received the instrument I starded to play and I was amazed once again - that guitar played like it has never played. The sound was just crisp and clear, it articulated like Heaven... I called the luthier and asked him is it possible that the guitar plays better after the repair or I am fantasizeing... he told me that this is absolutely possible because there were probably tensions into the instrument and after the fracture these tensions were released and disappeared... I told this to my wife and she suggested that "we have many guitars at home and if there are some tensions inside some of them she could help..." Sometimes women can be very cheeky!!! Now the guitar plays like a dream! The audio recording for that video was made before the last damage. By the way there is a baritone Alvarez guitar, recorded here in the audio too.

    The song (and the whole album) is recorded in A=432Hz A N G E L Thecold hugs the sharp chimneys. Thesky descends low and comfortably. The Angel will pass over the roofs to try the shoes of the Winter. My eyes are sewnof the frost but they are hidden by the hands of the fog. Asparrow, swallowed up the crumbs flies to the homes ofthe leaves. Thewindows of theyellow-eyed houses with extreme fidelity don't reveal nothing. The Angel will passand from above will detect the changesof the climate behind all of our towed curtains and he will feel arheumatic pain, because in the housesthere is often an Autumn or it is a Winter,nothing different. Thecold hugs the sharp chimneys. Thesky descends low and comfortably. The Angel will pass over the roofs to try the shoes of theWinter. Theshoes will tighten him tightly the emptiness will tightenhim too. Look, the Angel sitson the roof, sighs and remembers The Wings.

    Ut Oh!

    ... see ... The friend of mine I had given the guitar to has NO (let's say) correct attitude towards acoustic guitars. This is because of his arrogance and partly because of some kind of stupidity (I guess)... I suppose (according to the smell of the guitar and the case) that he kept the instrument in some basement because it stinked mold... And well, it needed some neck reset and fretboard redress... and refret... and I was a bit angry... but we play together with him and I can NOT reeducate that ALMOST 50 years old bastard... So I just took the guitar from him, fixed the problems and gave it to somebody who gave me the first electric guitar in my hands 40 years ago + LP-s like "The white album", Äbbey Road", "Let it be", "Revolver", "Help" etc. (don't forget that I live in Bulgaria and 40 years ago here was a "wild communism" - Beatles were enemies of the system, and after all I gave the J35 to my uncle.

    Ut Oh!

    Yeah, I still keep this J35, but I don’t play it. One year after I bought it I gave it to the friend of mine guitar player I play in a group with. He gave It back to me 6 months ago in a bad state after I gave him an Epiphone Texan. The guitar went to a luthier for refret, nut+saddle change and neck reset and I gave that J35 to my oncle who is now old and sick and had never had a Gibson acoustic to play on it. He was amazed by what I did and still can ont believe he has a J35 in his hands... I gave him a Gibson guitar to play in a hope that the playing on it will somehow cure him...
