3 Hands High: Guestbook

May 10, 2016

Was getting ready to hit the trail after an afternoon at the Rolling Oaks Music Festival when I heard that 2 of the 3 Hands High were going to play soon, so I had to stick around for their set. Oh yes! I am so glad I did! I started to smile so big and my body began to sway and my soul felt happy again! Thank you for making my world sunnier and happier and I want to know where all you play so I can smile more!!! Love you guys!! Can I harmonize with you sometime? Oh, yeah.. I did! I was singing right along as I sat in the front row at the festival!! Ha ha! This is truly roots music... gets me to MY ROOTS I know that!! Truly SWEET to hear your music!! Love It!!!

well..........tonight here in Homer Alaska I walked into the house after a long day at the boat building shop where I work and poured a few fingers of discount Irish whiskey and was just preparing for the first sip when my wife walked in and handed me a small flat package from Texas. I saw the sender's address and realized it was from a fellow I shared an evening of trading songs with in Hawaii - several thousand miles from Texas or Alaska. I hesitate to say that after a life spent playing music off and on that I don't much listen to music all that much but the small package had a CD in it from Elliot. So with the strange long evening sunlight that Alaska starts to have this time of year streaming in through the windows I had my daughter put the CD into the electronic contraption that plays them but I don't really know how to use it. The music coming from those speakers set me down. That's no small accomplishment. I am a guy who many decades ago used to play the sort of music Elliot plays - but I lost the thread of it and got into Jazz for maybe way too long. It would be hard to explain what an amazing feeling this CD is leaving on me as I type. There are sounds there from a simpler time when we were homesteaders in Alaska - when our family first drove down to Austin Texas for a couple years in the 60's - when the valid simplicity of acoustic instruments and a night on the dance floor was all a youngster could hope or ask for. So - to Elliot and every single person who played on this album - I'd like to say thank you. As a musician, long after the lights dim and the excitement of applause and rowdy patrons dwindles down - its really good to have someone come up to you and tell you - "you done good". Hopefully they are reasonably sober. So - before this really excellent discount Irish blended whiskey starts speaking louder than I do - "Elliot - you done good" - and it's been a long time since I was moved by the expression of song.

BTW - please give my best to the Molokai wrecking crew - I'll be expecting to see all of you sleeping on my lawn some summer day that will be infinitely colder than Texas hill country in July.

Elliott, I just read your profile in Flatpicking Guitar Magazine that led me to the 3 Hands High website. Glad I took the time to visit. Great sound. Love the guitars, vocals and Janice's bass. Where can I purchase a CD? Also, thanks for your contribution to the magazine. I, too, discovered my love for flatpicking listening to Doc Watson on "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" album in high school and am now trying to learn more about the art. Hopefully I can find the time to see you at Camp Bluegrass one year.

My husband and I are Housesitting in the Blanco area and decided to go to the Redbud Cafe this past Friday night for some live music - and live you were! What a great sound you have! We had a wonderful time and will be keeping an eye on your calendar.
