Forrest and his bud Ty Daniels, who he grew up playing football with here in Coweta, have finally gotten a couple hour set of acoustic music together. Ty Daniels was also actually the original bass player in Forrest's first band, "Crooked X." They were 10 and 11 years old respectively when they first started playing music together. Back before the days of voice changes and girl friends. Forrest and Ty are heading to Wagoner to play at the Canebrake for a wedding tomorrow night.
I am sending my camera and tripod with them, and will post some video of their acoustic set, which includes covers of Zac Brown, Eli Young, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Van Morrison, Darius Rucker, Johnny Cash, Steel Drivers, and others, as well as Forrest's original songs.
They are so proud of their newest editions. Forrest is pictured below with his 1989 D-28P Martin that he purchased from Guitar House of Tulsa, where he works, and Ty is the new proud owner of his first Taylor that he also purchased from Guitar House.
Boys and their guitars!
