    I still haven't got my hands a printed copy. John sent me this photo when the books arrived at Walker Creek camp where he was teaching at last week.

    It's spiral bound so it lays flat on your music stand. A HUGE plus!

    Picked this up at camp and it was very fun to watch John Reischman and the other instructors play "Nesser" and then go back to my camp and slowly pick it myself! Look forward to getting some good new tunes out of this!

    I too was lucky enough to score a copy of the new Reischman transcription book at Walker Creek Music Camp last weekend, and can attest that it is a beautiful folio befitting the album it celebrates. More than just a dry collection of basic melodies, it also has accurately transcribed solos identified by their start time on the recording, extensive notes from John himself on each tune, many photos of John and the Jaybirds and his cherished Loar (notably a nice glossy back cover with a collage of photos of John's legendary Loar) and a discography on the inside back cover. I hope we'll see a similar treatment for Walk Along John someday!

    I got my copy from John today! It turned out as good as I was hoping for--excellent print job on quality paper. A couple pics of it on my music stand. Second pic is inside front cover and title page.

    Thought we'd use this article to observe the anniversary of our John Reischman Interview, originally published on this date 2009. Still one of our favorites.

    My copy arrived in the mail today... just wanted to say that it looks great!

    Looking forward to diving into these tunes tonight...especially Indiana firefly, which I've been playing for a few years...

    One added bonus: there's a nice intro where John talks about composing and recording the songs....I always enjoy these insights from top musicians.

    If you haven't ordered yours yet, get a copy!

    Appears the entire site is not working at the moment. If you just go to his home domain address you get the same error. Likely a temporary thing.
