The Driftless are three beautiful ladies in California making some of the most wonderful bluegrass-colored folk I’ve heard in some time. Together, Megan Saunders (mandolin, banjo, vocals), Blair McLaughlin (guitar, violin, vocals), and Nicole Campbell (violin, guitar, vocals) weave melodies that evoke a soft breeze in a field on a warm summer’s day (and a visit to the pub that very same night). Now, The Driftless have released their first self titled ep and my ears couldn’t be happier.
Running time: 15m11s

3. Salt And Sweet
GuitarWorld got the legendary Ihsahn (Emperor, Peccatum, Ihsahn) to give another set of video guitar lessons, this time for Left Hand Path. I squeaked with joy and had to share it with you. Feast ears and eyes after the break.
A few more songs were written whose rough writing demo recordings made it to my SoundCloud account. Enjoy? o.O

I just added a sub-folder in the DigitaLucifer photobucket account for my guitars past and present. Nifty and keen, I say! I’m missing photos of guitar #3… I must track it down. What should I name my current Ibanez? I have some customizations and modifications I’ve been tossing around in my head for a year or so I should get around to. Hmmm… First step: pickguard.
