Man... this thread has a pretty good collection of harp guitar related videos on it! I figured I'd better share the video with me and Jeff Titus from HGG8 - Chava's Song - It was a very cool experience hearing that tune from the stage while playing it with Jeff...

Jason is everywhere! I had lunch with him during one of the HG Gatherings (I had a rental car and he needed a ride to wherever I chose to eat--- McDonald's). He is a fascinating, charismatic and  inventive performer. He is also very humble and kind. I don't remember what he ordered (maybe a salad) but just having lunch with Jason Carter was one of the high points of that gathering for me.

Michael, we too have taxied Jason around at gatherings. He has friends who live in Peterborough Ontario, about an hours drive from our home. Linda and I have attended several concerts that they have hosted for him.
What I find so intriguing about Jason is his "free spirit" approach to music. Most of us like to be surrounded by "like minded" people. Jason however seeks out those whom are the furthest from his UK roots. He is equally at ease playing for Bedouin tribesmen as he is for a communist country dictator/leader. He does not allow politics, race or religion to sway his goals of learning new musical styles and then playing his interpretations of them.
IMHO he is the embodiment of that famous seventies Coca Cola theme. He truly is trying to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony.

Hi Gregg.
Jason is now using the cedar and maple hg that he's playing in the "Guten morgan " video.
He has always been a cedar top man.
It's fitted with 2 Carlos Juan CP1 piezos. One under the guitar strings and one under the bass strings.
When he plays non harp guitar stuff, he can cut back the bass pickup. So he only carries one guitar with him now.
He's fitting a Miniflex 7 mic system at the moment. I let you all know how it works out.
Best wishes. Sean

Nice, Philippe!  Hey, you picked those supers up quick - what are you, the new "steel-string James Kline"?!
PS: Love the beard.

Thank you very much Sir Gregg! James Kline will always be a master for me. The beard is a way to approach his genius...

I really enjoy a beautiful Innovative melody coupled with excellent interpretive dance. My favorite music/dance video of all time is "Chandelier". I tear up every time I watch it - It is very powerful. Jason and Barbara's Deliverance video is my favorite harp guitar video..so far.

In case you haven't seen this video, (or read my other post) Don Ross now has his Marc Beneteau harp guitar.

Thanks Stephen

This one is really nice. I already worked out the first 10 measures. The rest is too hard for me to play. Great playing Jason and great sounding instrument.

Glad you liked it Michael. What tuning did you use?

That is where I ran into the problem. I could find "hammerons" and "pulloffs" to play along in standard tuning then at measure 11 the hard stuff begins.

Michael the guitar tuning from low to high is octave A, A, C sharp, G sharp, C sharp & E. (I think).
Hope this help you have more fun.
Best wishes, Sean

Thanks! I really like this piece and would like to work on it. Is bass descending DCBAGF? I guess I should be able to figure that out on my own.  Two others I'd like to learn are "Blue Shift Principle" by Don Adler and "The Friends I Never Met" by Gregg Miner. Both of these favorites are on the "Further Beyond Six Strings" CD. That whole CD is incredible! I will ask them both for help with these at the next HG Meeting.

Michael
