Next Big Adventure shot to number 17 on the most popular list at www.guitar9.com after a bunch of sales and great reviews in the word of mouth section. I also had just under 200 downloads on iTunes in the last month and a half or so. That puts the total number of downloads at somewhere around 1400 give or take. I cannot say how cool it is having people from around the world buying my songs. Thanks a ton!
Well I had been working on my Christmas CD like crazy but ran into a delay when one of my band members children got very sick. I really want to complete this CD using as much of my current band as possible so I am waiting for this situation to get better. Hopefully I will have something for you to at least listen to here on the site soon.
I started writing tracks for my new CD which is yet untitled and am hoping to have it out by Summer 2009. I am also buying a new video camera and will have regular vid clips up for you guys to check out more often. I have been delayed by never having the right gear to do this correctly, keeping updates current on the site and having lessons/vid clips on some regular basis. It has been my fault, I was and am super busy but not having a good camera and software is not good either. But fear not my friends it will change shortly.
My company T D Clark Productions was written up in the Mokena Messenger last month. I currently am offering guitar classes going on through my company at 18 Park districts here in Illinois and it is growing by the minute. Mokena was so happy with their class taught by my instructor Bill Osman, that they sent out the local newspaper to do a shoot and I did a 30 minute phone interview. To see it, go to Mokena Messenger and look up Mokena’s real guitar hero's.
My annual Christmas recital is on December 21st at the Eola Community center 555 S.Eola Road in Aurora 60504. Student drop off is at 4:30 and the food will be served around 5:45 with the recital starting around 7. I look forward to this event every year and it seems to get bigger all the time. I am expecting 120 people this year with 35 students participating in the recital. Merry Christmas to everyone!
