Thanks, Josh...i looked around and listened.  I like him.  The free song of the month; "Caveman" was cool.  -_-

I've been a Smither fan for years.

See him in concert, he's great. He also does seminars at Jorma Kaukonen's Fur Peace Ranch. My brother took one with him last year and was transformed by it.

A great writer, performer and guitarist.

He has a couple of instructional videos and a book. Great stuff.

I love Chris Smither. Kind of a cross between Mississippi John Hurt and Chuck Berry. I just purchased the Instructional DVD. It isn't too in depth but it's kind of like having him in your livingroom. More conversational than instructional. Kind of a nice way to learn.  Capo on the second fret standard tuning or open D tuning will get you really close.
I recommend all of his recordings. There's not really a bad one. The live recording really shows how his personality adds to his music.

Good stuff. He sounds too much like Guy Clark to be an individual star but good stuff.  Speaking of that, I've been listening to Pierce Pettis lately. Who came first? Lyle Lovett or PP? They seem to be sharing the same voice.

I've been a fan of his for a long time. Saw him a couple of years ago at the New Orleans Jazz fest. Bought a cd of that performance. I sure hope N.O. finds its way back to us. Need to try to help the best we can.
