    Grab some good headphones...the video is just my excuse to post an original bluegrass instrumental! This is eleven tracks of acoustic and electric guitar with mandolin and bass, "The Cable Car Ride". Although I had a jazz recording out in the '90's (Better Than Dreams) I love performing and writing all types of music. The Hawk's Nest park near Ansted, West Virginia, is a frequent place we visit my wife's relatives, the Oxley family, among others in West Virginia. This is video of the cable car and jet boat rides taken with an inexpensive HP camera and edited on a Mac laptop. We welcome your reactions! - johnsharpband @ gmail.com.

                    The video here is not important...it is the audio track that is the reason it is posted. Plug in some studio quality headphones. Listen to the deep, rich tone of this 1978 Aria Pro II guitar, a Japanese made version of the famous Gibson L-5. Also notice the audio effect between the left and right channels. John Sharp, former recording artist for Reference Records of California, is an independent artist based in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. The track here is simply an improvised intro to the Victor Young song, Stella By Starlight. We welcome comments!
