Default Lame Horse is Coming to BIG!

Lame Horse Instruments is looking forward to BIG this coming weekend. We are going several places this fall - BIG in New Braunfels, Texas; Cremona Musica in Cremona, Italy; Ullapool Guitar Festival, Ullapool, Scotland; and Festival de Guitar Puteaux, Paris, France. We will have several instruments. Chris will be speaking in Cremona, Italy. However, we built a pair of special instruments from Italian spruce and mahogany from Belize, especially for these shows. The attendees at BIG will be the first to see and hear them. We will have a Saddle Pal with a wonderful back and sides from the TREE. Also a Big Hoss with back and sides from the Fiddleback Tree. This is perfectly matched curly mahogany.

Thank you John. The best part of BIG is the wonderful collection of people who attend…..and I’ll surely miss seeing you there this year.

Thank you Joel and Lamehorse for showing your instruments. Truly amazing work and I am proud that you are bringing them to our show!

Even after 4 years, many sales, fantastic workshops and performances from many varied artist, all world recognized, and guitars like these seen above, including #200 Kinnaird completed purposefully for B.I.G., there are still people who do not even recognize B.I.G. as a guitar show. It breaks my heart really, but I take solace knowing those who attend know what it is and many have been for all of them. We have about 20 new folks this year who will be in for quite the shock when they see what B.I.G. is all about.

Just a couple of days to go, speaking of going, I must as well, I have a deck to power wash, our lunch area to clean up and the parking lot to mow before Thursday!

Anyone arriving late-ish Thursday? I think there's a restaurant or gas station to grab a little grub and beer.

Tom, I have been to guitar shows all over North America and Europe. While the format of BIG is unique, it is that originality along Texas friendliness and hospitality that makes BIG among the best events that Lame Horse Instruments has ever attended. Once again this year we look forward to having time to really get to know the attendees, explain every feature of every instrument, have our instruments demonstrated by some of the the best players in the world, and listen to world class concerts every night. Maybe some people don't recognize BIG as a regular guitar show, because it is not. It is something different, and much better. Whatever one wants to call it, we are thankful for it, and the great experience that it is!

Beautifully put, I agree and look forward to seeing everyone in a couple of days.

Well anyone who’s been to our shop knows that we’re from the backwoods. As such, Steve cut his teeth building mountain dulcimers, and we’re going to bring one with us to BIG in case anyone wants to get a real sense of the country. Plus it’s always fun to use the term mixolydian (Ben Wilborn can tell you what it means).







So close now!

Are you looking to sell the dulcimer or is it a show piece?

I don't know how to play one, but it's clearly diatonic and there are only 3 strings so (famous last words) how hard could it be? (No insult intended to anyone)

The bar to get into them is pretty low, but they are a lot of fun and actually sound great. Hope you give it a whirl and get comfortable with it.

If Chris or Jeremy bring a Gitjo, perhaps we can recreate that Deliverance scene and add a dulcimer to the mix. You know, just to creep, I mean, country it up some!
