This year at CAAS I plan to have a table where I can show my guitars that are currently available and make people aware of the two websites. I have asked a good friend Mark Barerres to help me out at the table while I do my yearly stage managing and sound on Stage B. I plan to have several of my guitars at the convention so that some of the Guitarists can have the opportunity to play them and get familiar with Sullivan Custom Hand made Guitars. I look forward to CAAS each year for the music and the camaraderie.
I want to try something a little different this year though, I would like to take a video camera and video tape some short interviews with some of my favorite artists. On our websites we have been working to build a comprehensive directory of artists around the world linking to them and asking them to link back to us. One part of this is to help connect the community of fingerstyle acoustic guitarists and other acoustic Guitarists and have a central place to help promote Acoustic Guitar playing in America. We encourage all of you to link back to us as well and keep the promotion going.
I’m using a Blog technology to to help build the community and to link out to events like CAAS and my websites, by using a very handy plugin to word press called WP Affiliate Pro, I set it up so that it looks for different strings of words and then when it finds them it automatically makes them links to what they talk about. So for me I just type and don”t have to worry about the details of making links it done automatically. Feel free to explore the links, they will guide you around my sites as well as to WP Affiliate Pro to learn more about that technology.
