I woke up and remember having to go into my room to get some clothes or something out of my chest of drawers. I was very quiet, as I could hear Rev snoring and didn't want to wake him. Well, I got whatever it was and I was headed toward the door when I heard in a commanding voice,"Don't move or you're dead!". I turned around to see Rev with a .38 revolver in his hand pointed in my general direction, but sort of moving around so as to cover a wider target area. I remember screaming something to the effect of, "No--don't shoot." Rev replied, "One wrong move and you're dead." Well, then I started talking a mile a minute..."Rev, it's me, it's Barry, don't shoot Rev...I was only getting something from my chest of drawers..." Finally, Rev said, "Is that you, Barry?" The incident was soon over, and I had escaped with me life. I guess, from his perspective, it must have been kind of weird to be alone, blind, on the road 3,000 miles from home and rooming with a bunch of lunatic young musicians many years his junior. But to this day, the picture of Reverend Gary Davis that sticks in my mind the most is early in the morning, half-awake and blind as a bat, with a .38 in his hand pointed in my general direction. It was one of the most frightening moments of my life - Barry Melton

Fraulini 12 string video demo
« on: May 03, 2014, 08:12:33 PM »
Hi everyone, I just posted a new video demo on You Tube describing a Fraulini Angelina 12 string. I geared a lot of the information to the viewer who may not know much about this type of guitar so a lot of the video will be old hat to Forum members. Mary Flower and I were originally going to do this video together on 6 and 12 string Fraulini's but she did a session with Acoustic Guitar magazine and they asked her to describe her gear so I decided to do one just on the 12 string. It is far from perfect, but we did it all in one take so it is what it is. I am just trying to get some publicity for Todd's great instruments beyond our little niche. Hope you like it.

Great job James. I've been a fan of Todd's guitars for several years, always a joy seeing them played. I first became aware of them seeing Paul Geramia play at the Blue Door in OKC, and asking him who made his 12. I really enjoyed your Broke Down Engine, thanks for posting!
