Please allow me a little self indulgence here.  (Who am I kidding– podcasting is a self-indulgent activity).  Last week I met with my friend Ron Belanger at theGood Vibes Coffee House to pick up my new Ron Belanger handmade guitar.  Here is a recording of my first set of my own songs with my new guitar.  Enjoy.

I got a new Ron Belanger guitar last night. I thought I would play it for a couple of hours and invited my online friends to join me on ustream.

I remembered to press record about 1/2 way through my set.

Here’s what I captured.
