Funded! This project was successfully funded on June 10, 2012.


Looking to fund my 12th solo album! A longtime dream of mine, collaborating with other famous slide guitarists for "SLIDE-ONLY" duets!

This "Slide Guitar Summit" album will hopefully feature duets with some of my favorite slide guitar masters, such as SONNY LANDRETH, DAVID LINDLEY, MICK TAYLOR, BONNIE RAITT, ERIC SARDINAS, RICK VITO, JOHNNY WINTER, JERRY DOUGLAS, DEREK TRUCKS, LEE ROY PARNELL, ROBERT RANDOLPH, GREG MARTIN, JOE PERRY, J GEILS, WARREN HAYNES, G.E. SMITH, JIMMY VIVINO and more, and will include both original as well as "cover" tunes, on both acoustic and electric slide guitar, and also Lap Steel as well! I hope to record at least 11 to 12 tracks and may have to do a fair amount of traveling to accomplish all these recording sessions, and to make them fit into everyone's busy schedules. It will also feature some documentary footage of the "making of" the album.This is similar in the way I had to record my famous "Toolin' Around" album, which also featured many duets with artists such as Danny Gatton, Duane Eddy, Albert Lee, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Duke Robillard, Brian Setzer and Bill Lloyd, and which was recorded in a number of places, including Nashville, Woodstock and D.C.. I intend to make this one of the most incredible guitar-related albums ever, and perhaps the greatest Slide Guitar album of all-time! It will be a "must" for any serious guitarist's music collection! I hope you can help "kick start" me on this worthwhile and exciting musical adventure! Thanks, AR
