Gregg Miner: Norwegian Wood companion book

90 pages, softcover or PDF

In Stock

The ultimate in liner notes!  This beautiful full-color, fully-illustrated, 90-page perfect bound book was created to share not only the stories behind the music of Norwegian Wood, but the instruments that it made it – along with the fascinating builder (Knutsen) who built them. An additional bonus are the dozens of rare historical photos and advertisements depicting similar instruments in their 1895-1930 heyday. Main shots (first and last) of instruments are all in scale to keep everything in perspective. As an accompaniment to the CD or a stand-alone book, it’s another over-the-top Gregg Miner production!  More >>> See format options

Chris Knutsen: From Harp Guitars to the New Hawaiian Family by George T. Noe & Daniel Most 

190 pages, softcover

In Stock

The ground-breaking book begins with Knutsen's life in the 1890s in Port Townsend at about the time of his harp guitar patent applications and follows his life and the development of his instruments in Port Townsend, Tacoma, Seattle and Los Angeles, and his influence on other luthiers, until his death in Los Angeles in 1930.  Chris Knutsen has been possibly the most unappreciated luthier of his era.  His contributions to, and influence on, the development of the Hawaiian steel guitar, in particular, have been largely overshadowed by those who came after him, both then and now.   He was the first mainland luthier to build instruments specifically designed to be played in the style used and taught by Hawaiian musicians.  More >>> $39.95
