T-Shirts and Gifts From Acoustic Music TV

I had a great idea the other day, I have drawn all of these cool instruments for my chord charts, the guitar, mandolin, ukulele, banjo, etc, and thought wouldn't these look good on a t-shirt. I have always wanted to produce a line of t-shirts, and I now have all this cool art so why not. So over the next bit of time I will be putting up all kinds of shirts, and gifts using the art from our charts. Everything is located on Cafepress, so it makes it easy to order and it is ready to go. If anyone has a cool idea for a shirt, it isn't to hard to make one up so let me know and I can pull one together. I would also love to see you wearing one so take a picture and send it in and I will post it.

Banjo Chord Sheets Coming Shortly

Look at this cool picture from 1856, The Banjo Player by William Sidney Mount, pretty neat. Summer has finally arrived in the north east and we are finished with all the end of school year stuff, so back to working on Acoustic Music TV.

We have several new chord sheets coming, a banjo sheet in G tuning, a guitar blank chord sheet and a mandolin blank chord sheet. With the blank chord sheets you can write in your chords for a great way to jot down a song when you are in a hurry.

We also have a new AMTV show coming with the music of Gerry Ryan, finishing up editing should be soon. Thanks everyone for all the great comments and look for the Banjo sheet shortly.
