Jack Rose - NPR and Andrew Stranglen pay Tribute

Tim Bugbee/Tinnitus Photography
Time for a little more Jack Rose content! 
Andrew Stranglen has sent me a couple tunes to share with all of you! 
Andrew is certainly no Fahey traditionalist!  Instead preferring electric sounding mixes, flabby low-tuned guitars and usually improvising as often as not.  It's great!
Hit the link to d/l 2 songs: "I Didn't Know Jack" and "Dis Wam Me"
About "I Didn't Know Jack" - "I recorded at home with a crappy mic and a soundhole p.u.and the mic's not prominent at all in the mix Tuning is open C/NO, it's Open A7th tune to open C then drop it down to A, then tune the high string from C# to C for that 7th nice and flabby drop tuning"
About "Dis Wam Me" - Recorded with a ZOOM, part of a larger project Andrew is working on.

Rose has been garnering some attention on NPR as of late.  Here's some links to those in case you missed them.
