Kentucky Waltz

Kentucky Waltz – a tablature of a bluegrass classic was added to the shop. It is a song written by the father of bluegrass music – Mr. Bill Monroe. Although the former recording doesn’t have a Dobro break it’s an excellent vehicle for the Dobro playing. Here is my arrangement of this beautiful song in the key of D. It contains many forward and a few reverse slant positions, so pay attention to them and be patient. For more reference feel free to watch the video of me playing this song.

You can watch the video on my classroom page or my YouTube channel.

A new CD by Novy Rownak – Cesty po hvezdach

A new CD from the country-folk band Novy Rownak, where I play the dobro and lap steel is out. The CD contains exclusively original songs by our singer Viktor Pucek and it’s sung in the Czech language.
If you are interested in this type of music, or if you are just curious how it sounds, here is the link to the Novy Rownak website where you can hear the song samples.

If you like it and you want to own this music on your CD collection write me via contact sheet on this website. The CD is not available in digital distribution. The price is 12€ plus postage.

Musique Acoustique fundraising

I have to say, I feel blessed to be a part of the Musique Acoustique family. What a generous act to organize fundraising for lectors-musicians, who lost the opportunities to perform their occupation during this corona crisis. Along with the students of the workshop, they gathered the money in fundraising and divided it among the teachers. This is not something that might be taken for granted and it makes me speechless. I am deeply touched by this act of humanity. What a pity we couldn’t celebrate together the 35th anniversary of the MA Workshop together this year and I hope we’ll do it in good health next year.
Stay safe and healthy everybody, looking forward to seeing you soon!
