In the past year I re-covered several Fenders and made some new
cabinets using “Tolex” supplied by Kendrick and John Sprung. There
are also several wholesale suppliers if you are buying quantities or
want something like purple or snakeskin. It isn’t too difficult if you
clean the surface and can cut straight with a razor. The buest glue I
have found is 3M vinyl trim adhesive available from automotive parts
distributors. It is 3M part number 08090. Use outside on a warm dry
day. Don’t inhale and don’t get it on anything you don’t want to look
like a guitar amp! If you need mare detail E-mail Nick Colleran


Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.

Harp Tab

A collection of songs and riffs that I’ve worked out over the years, plus some libraries of stuff I’ve converted to tablature. I’ve included most of the notes and instructions that helped me when I was learning to play blues harmonica.
