Melody Maker Tablature

Hello everyone! I’d like to now make my tablature available for my song “Melody Maker”, the title track to my Melody Maker album! It’s been quite popular on the Spotify Acoustic Concentration playlist and I’ve had numerous requests for it.  So here it is! I hope you enjoy learning to play it. Show me your performance of it on youtube if you get a chance to upload it. It doesn’t have to be the whole tune. It can be your favorite part of it, or whatever you like.

 The important thing is just to enjoy learning and playing!

New Video, Viking of Rimrock by Lance Allen

Hey everyone, I’m excited to show this video to you as it’s one of the best I’ve had done so far! I think it turned out really great! I have 2 more coming soon and I’ll share those as well!

-This tune was inspired by the show on History Channel called Vikings. I happen to live on a rimrock and resemble vikings from the show with my beard and all.. lol ! I’m the Viking of Rimrock! Hopefully you understand my story in the music.

-Hope you enjoy! Make sure you check out Michael Gomez and his studio that put this together!  West light Studios. Shoot him a message at his site or Facebook, letting him know he did wonderful! And consider hiring him for your own video like this!

Make sure you check out that special capo I have on there! Notice guitarlancer? It’s a g7th Heritage capo and its awesome and I’m very proud of it and glad to endorse!!

Don’t forget you can always listen to my music on Spotify and add me to your playlist! I’d love to be on there!

Also if your a fan of acoustic finger style guitar music, check out the playlist Acoustic Concentration. I have a tune on there! It’s a great playlist. Hoping they’ll put one of my new ones on there or perhaps on the 6 String Peacefulness one as well! If you’re a curator and found this post, please consider adding some of my music to some of your instrumental playlist!


Lance Allen on Fox 17 Nashville

Hey there everyone! I got the chance to be on the Nashville news with Mr. Eric Dahl from Fox 17 Rock and Review. We talked Takamine guitars and about my newest album, “String Poet”. Available on iTunes or wherever you get music.

Here is the actual news piece.. I recorded it with my phone.

Here is the extended interview:

Here’s a couple of other things that I have been up to if it interest you at all.

Me demonstrating a guitar impersonating Hank Hill, from the 90’s popular show King of The Hill

Here’s a couple of beautiful Takamine Guitars that I put together a demo video on.

Skye Boat Song Fingerstyle Guitar tablature

I’ve put the work in and now have the tablature available for

“Skye Boat Song”

It’s a very lovely arrangement using DADGAD tuning.

My wife, Twila, is a super fan of Outlander! I’m not kidding! She has the books, loves the show, the story and everything Outlander! I made this arrangement for guitar as a tribute to my wife’s addiction to everything Outlander.

Hope you enjoy learning it. There is a video below. The tablature follows my recording of the tune, available on my album “String Poet” and in the video at the bottom

Just $5 is a good cup of coffee and a learning experience! 🙂

For those of you interested. I’m playing my Takamine EF75 with Brazilian rosewood. Such a Special guitar! I recorded the video with the Zoom Q8 recorder with an AKG c3000 mic plugged directly into camera. Turned out really nice.
