New stuff July 2015

Hi Everyone! I hope you’re enjoying the first week of July. Here in Nashville, it’s raining and thunderstorms everywhere. So I’ve been busy uploading videos and wanted to show them to you. Especially if you’re not a youtube subscriber. These are all finger style guitar songs. And you’ll notice that I have tabs for sale for a few of them.

First, is my song Us Together. It’s a lovely song inspired by just hanging out with family etc. It also reminds me of getting opportunities to play with my guitar heroes like Tommy Emmanuel, Phil Keaggy, and Pete Huttlinger. You can google them, they’re seriously good and I’m doing my best to follow in their leadership.

You can also buy the tab to this song here for only $4.95.  BUY NOW

Hope you enjoy the song.


This is another beautiful tune, Peaceful Dreamer. Written for my wife, who likes to sleep in in the mornings. Isn’t it lovely? Sleep… yes. Maybe this song can help you or a little one get some much needed rest.


And this is a song on my first album. It’s the title track, Sometimes in Life. I also have tab for this one as well.  BUY TAB. $4.95


Also happening….

I’m headed to NAMM next week, as well as the 2015 Chet Atkins Appreciation society convention. Busy week! And on top of that I have a gig on Friday the 10th in Nashville and a wedding to play on the 11th. As a guitarist making a living in Nashville area, I have to be on top of my professional behavior and do what I can to continue my dream job of playing guitar for a living. It’s a great challenge and I enjoy the rewards!

At NAMM I plan to meet the new guys at Takamine, which is now managed by ESP guitars, and meet a new friend that works with Lanikai Ukuleles! I’m excited about Lanikai, as I may be doing some ukulele lessons for their site. That typically means new, beautiful ukulele. 🙂 I’ll keep you posted about all that. I’ll also be checking out the main floor, looking at people products and services. I’ll keep you informed if I think it’s cool.


BTW Thanks for downloading any of my music on itunes last month. I took my family out to dinner and ice cream. Would be nice to pay my house off with my music, so keep telling people about Lance Allen music and listening on iTunes, Pandora, wherever.. My music will also be on Apple music, so if you’re a subscriber to that, please feel free to play my music over and over and over again.


End of month I’m competing in the Indiana Fingerstyle Guitar competition. Check it out and cheer me on!


I visited the Guitar Gallery today and played a few wonderful guitars. Again, a Julius Borges was friggin amazing! and I tinkered on a very beautiful sounding Delgado classical guitar. A Bown also stuck out to me as a wonderful and very resonant instrument! Check them all out I’ve included links.

Thanks for listening and I’ll talk to you next time I have news.





CAAS 2012 Chet Atkins Appreciation Society

It’s that time of year again and so many people come to CAAS. (Chet Atkins Appreciation Society)

This, I believe, is my tenth year in a row that I’ve come to the event and I’ve been very fortunate to play the event for the last three years. CAAS was a great event for me and my dad to get together and hang. He passed in 2010 and going gives me a good memory of him and the legacy that he left me on the guitar.

My career owes a lot to CAAS. On my first year I met some English people, that became friends immediately. This eventually led me to a trip in 2008 to London and I got to perform for a finger style guitar club in Chesham.

In 2006 I produced my first cd and promoted it at CAAS, along with my arrangement of Sometimes in Life, which was featured in Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine. Now known as Fingerstyle 360.

On my first year I got to meet Mr. Tommy Emmanuel and jam with him for a good 30 minutes on the early morning. He gave me the name guitarlancer, which a lot of you know me by because of my email and website www.guitarlancer.com.

CAAS brings people from all over the world! I’ve met so many finger style guitar players that it may drive someone crazy. I’m sure it has driven some wives quite crazy!

Here’s a list of people I’ve jammed for and met and became aquiantences with.

Tommy Emmanuel, John Knowles, Pat Kirtley, John StandaferNishi Nishiyama Takayuki, Bob Evans, Thom Bresh, Not to mention Keith Fletcher my English buddy, Ben Hall, Mark Pritcher is the president, Tony McManus (Love that guy!) Martin Taylor, Bob Saxton, Michael O’Dorn, John Goldie, Pete Huttlinger, Muriel Anderson, Edgar Cruz, Tim Thompson, Bill Piburn, Fred Kelly Picks, Adam Rafferty, Bobby Gibson, Nokie Edwards, Joe Robinson, Fred Gretcsh III, and many more as you can imagine.

If I’ve left you out and you’re reading this, let me know I’ll give you some props too:)!

I’ve become quite the finger style guitarist as a result of being a member of CAAS and taking in all that I could!

There is also guitar builders there that display there instruments. People such as Kirk Sand guitars, Gretsch, Maton, Travis, Stonebridge, Morris, Beard Guitars, Benedetto Guitars

It’s a great event and one to return to.

Here’s a picture of me and long time friends Tommy Emmanuel and Kevin Hayes.

I brought Kevin because he’s a huge Tommy fan! He really Enjoyed the concert!

Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo were outstandingly hilarious entertainers! And phenomenal guitar playing!

Tommy has been a big influence on my ongoing guitar career. I compose many of my own original compositions and Tommy and many other people from Chet Convention have inspired them.
