Met kickstarter goal in 1 day

I met my kickstarter goal in one day YAY!

Ok, I set a lower budget knowing that, but wanted to reach about $2500 for this, so if you get the chance to show your support, here’s the link again.

Thanks a bunch and look forward to sharing my new project with you!

What has Lance been up too?!?!?


Hey everyone! It has been a while since I have posted a blog post! I thought I might share with you a little of what I have been up to lately.

This morning I had breakfast and a jam session with Ben Clark. Some of you may know of him as Banjo Ben. Here’s what he does.. He teaches like me, but on a subscription based site and does a great job at it! He’s a super fun guy and I really enjoyed our conversation and jam. I’ve considered doing this myself, but haven’t bit the bullet yet. More to come.. with Banjo Ben too, as we’re going to plan a thing we can do together that will be fun and educational.

I recently went to Nashville Indiana and competed in the

Indiana State Fingerstyle Guitar Contest. 

I prepared and prepared, and worked hard, but didn’t even make it to the top 5, however I did snag the peoples choice award. It was no slouch of a prize at all.



For a long time I’ve wanted a telecaster guitar, and I’ve been that only lonely fella in Nashville with out one!  lol!

Now I have this beautiful custom made guitar by SDC Guitars of Indianapolis!

SDC Guitars
4357 W. 96th Street
Indianapolis, IN 46268

Scott Campbell and Chuck Wills were gracious enough to put together this lovely guitar, which is now one of my favorite electrics!

“It’s very slick, with Warmoth Licensed T-type replacement neck, “Modern Vintage” style. 1 11/16″ nut width, with a ’59 Les Paul back carve. It’s a little chunkier than most Fender necks, but fits nicely in the palm. It should strike a nice balance between fingerstyle and other electric type playing. The frets are medium jumbo, and it’s a nice hard birdseye maple wood.
The body is a medium weight ash with transparent black finish. Everything was hand fitted by Scott for a tight fit and mirror finish. Chose to not do a pick guard since the wood was so pretty. In choosing the neck and body combo, one of us said out loud “we want it to look pretty bad ass, like something David Gilmour would play”…. so you got trans black and maple!

Hardware all came from Stewmac:
Oak/Grigsby 4-way switch with series/parallel wiring, CTS Pots, Orange Drop cap, vintage style tuners, compensated brass saddles.

The pickups are Lindy Fralin Blues tele pickups. I had played these before and knew they would be able to pull off both a traditional Tele sound as well as push the amp for more modern styles. In the series switch position they are wired like a humbucker and give a thick tone that really grinds through an overdrive pedal or turned up amp. The control plate is reversed so that it’s easier to do volume swells.”


Here’s a shoutout to the winners at Indiana

1st Place Ali Deniz Kardelen

2nd Place Jonathan Brown

3rd Place Jeff Foster 

Now that I’ve competed in Indiana I’ll be headed off to Winfield Kansas to compete in the much bigger contest! I enjoy going there win or not, so I’ll give it my best. That’s all you can ever ask for out of a person right?

OK So recently I got involved with the Faith Guitar brand. Lovely guitars at a fraction of the cost of it’s similar competitors.


I was hired to create some video demonstrations of some of their guitar line! So far so good! One of the guitar I really like! It’s their MARS all Mahogany guitar! 

These vids will be posted soon, but here is my sample I sent to them and a funny out take video you might like.


In November I’ll be heading to L.A. with Batson guitar brand. We’re taking part in the Taxi Road rally event. That should be really awesome networking for me and what not. I’ll be playing and showing off the new model of Batson guitars as well as drinking coffee and hanging out with other songwriters..

I’m also in the works of making a new cd of original guitar music. Thinking on doing another kickstarter to help with the fundraising and all.  I’ll keep you posted.

And as always, thanks for reading my blog entry. If you ever have any direct questions for me or want lessons, or chat about guitars, coffee, or life, shoot me an email!


Busy Fingerstyle Guitarist Here

Good Day everyone!

I’ve been busy!

Writing tons of new material and getting ready to share with the world. I’ve been posting some new videos and arrangements you can listen to below.

Soon I will be doing another Kickstarter to help presale and market my new album. Their will be some very cool things to happen there!

Here is a tune I wrote for my wife Twila Joy. This is a beautiful waltz, “Waltz With Joy”

Here’s one I wrote for a Friend, Scott Bravo. I left the initial out takes in there because sometimes it’s funny. When Scott and I hang out it’s always funny! It’s a work in process and is getting tighter!

Here is my arrangement of “Our God is Greater” by Chris Tomlin

I play guitar in church a lot and do a lot of strumming of tunes like this. I just came up with this for fun and hope you can enjoy as well.

Lastly, I’ve revamped and recorded my arrangement of the lovely tune, Rainbow Connection

Be on the look out for me promoting my kickstarter soon.

I’m preparing for the Indiana guitar contest last of July and also have some work coming my way with the Faith Guitar company.

Here’s a look at a Faith Guitar

New Guitar! Faith FNCEHG – HiGloss Neptune Cut/Electro

Hey Guitar friend and folks!

I got another opportunity to showcase, demo, and play on Faith Guitars at the Summer NAMM show here in Nashville TN. I’m looking forward to getting to know some of the fine folks at Connolly Music and showing off their guitars to potential buyers and B2B operations! Will certainly be fun. One of the perks of this gig, is I got a new guitar. It’s the Neptune model, which is a small jumbo style guitar. It’s easy to play and sounds great right out of the case!

Here’s a couple of performances of me with the guitar.

This first one is Somewhere Over the Rainbow. Got a lot of great feedback from this one.

Make you feel my love. Adele arrangement Dylan song.

This is my arrangement that I put together for a recent wedding I played. It allows you to hear the resonance of the guitar. It sounds fantastic. I only added a touch of reverb to give it some depth.

Let me know what you think! or comment on the videos..

Thanks for watching and keep on guitaring!
