Thanks so much for your suggestion of a new lesson by Chris Smither, one of my personal favorites. It’s a good idea and I'll add it to our "wish list" of possible new projects.
wishlist?....c'mon hap, let's make this happen...lol
Yes I've experienced that as well. They have their transfer rates throttled to a certain value. I'm guessing they are paying for a certain size internet pipe and want to stay within a defined limit. Once you've downloaded your course you're done so if it takes 5 minutes or 50 it doesn't really matter after that. So kick off a download and either practice another video or do it before going to sleep and it will be there for you the next day.
Any chance of getting a video on Texas-Style Fiddle backup? There isn't much for resource that I can find out there.
I agree! Another Chris Smither instructional DVD is what this music world needs. Chris Smither has incredible talent and I would fight Chris Knoeppel for being first in line! :)
get your gloves on, nathan..looks like we're going' toe to toe..lol.....glad to see another huge chris smither fan........i especially would like to see him break down "small revelations"..."all we need to know".."outside in"...."deed i do"....."shillin' for the blues"...."seems so real"...to name a few
I just noticed that the latest purple player update has a "use external storage" toggle button. That is great news! I am trying it out now, and i bought another lesson to express my gratitude. Thanks for listening to your customers.
Our friends at Platform Purple are continuing to upgrade their products to give our "students" the best possible way to view our lessons. I'm glad you noticed this particular function, although I believe we've had it for quite some time now. Anyway, thanks for noticing and passing along the info.
I was Googling around for some of the many covers of "Killing the Blues," and was fortunate enough to find Chris' live version (Paris, 2007). It's outstanding. (I should see if I can get that from Amazon.)
Also noticed that Acoustic Guitar magazine had Chris' "Link of Chain" as one of the Songs to Play in the May 2006 issue. Googled that, and found a YouTube video of a live performance. I think it's way beyond my abilities, but it sure sounded good.
douglas clark, you can get link of chain ...taught by chris himself, right here at homespun....his first dvd covers it.....
killing the blues is on that, as well
Someone has uploaded Paul's DVDs to YouTube. Thought you might like to know, since that would seem to be a violation of some sort.
try this link,
good stuff, not expensive, I bought a plenty
but the guy is in vacation till next July 3rd
No risk of wrath from me, Colin. It's not a bad idea, although since the six string banjo is tuned exactly like a guitar, you can use any number of our DVDs to learn to play this instrument. I'll give it further thought, though. Thanks for the suggestion.
I'm sure Susan got right on this and sent you a replacement. This is very unusual but stuff happens. Get back in touch and let us know if you got this straightened out. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Yes, I agree, especially about Spider John. I think I brought this up to him a couple of decades ago with not much response. I haven't seen him in ages. I'll keep it in mind and will see if, at this advanced age, he has any interest. Thanks for the suggestion.
Hi, I couldn't find a lesson on: SLOOP JOHN B, is there a lesson available?

It took a couple of years, but I am very happy and grateful that the Blues lesson of this set has been pulled from the archives and made available as a digital download and at a great intro price as well! Time to dig into "Rolling Log" again....
Thank you Happy, I really appreciate it!
