Jeff, Just a note to wish you a very happy New Year and the best of luck
in all you do. Drove down to Pennsylvania last weekend and listened to
your album back and forth. It was perfect driving music especially driving
through the mountains all covered in snow! Kim
I am writing in behalf of my sister and I. I want to thank you and compliment
you on the tape you gave my sister Dawn on a recent flight. She is a flight attendant
for a major airline. My name is Dave. Take care and keep writing and playing
Respectfully, Dave and Dawn
I've thought of you a lot. In fact, I often listen to your CD as I fall
asleep. Your guitar playing is so very beautiful. Thank you, Jeff! I'm
glad to hear you're making your music more available to people. You are
wonderfully talented, and it's important to share that with as many people
as possible. I look forward to hearing your new album. In the meantime,
I'll be dreaming with Dreams :)
Wishing you wonders and joy,
I fed myself with your music all the way into work today, it felt great.
I am still listening.
My name is Sue. Just wanted to tell you that your music is beautiful!
Very mellow and relaxing. I'm so glad they told me to tune in. Congrats
on your CD and continued success.
Re: Loved your CD
Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you but I've been real busy.
I really enjoyed or should say enjoy your CD as well. Beautifully crafted
guitar work. Great stuff to listen to when you want to be transported.
I am back in New York and wanted to thank you again for the wonderful experience
I had playing at Ocean Thunder's open mic last Wednesday night. I wish
the people in New York were half as enthusiastic as your patrons were with
me that night.
I did listen to your cassette. It was very pleasant. I remember because
I listened to it while cleaning my apartment...and if something spurs me
on to clean, I know it's got good energy - 'cause it's not something I
naturally do all the time!
I can't get that intro music that you wrote for LT1 out of my head.
Not that I'm trying to, it's sooo cool, THANK YOU!
How are you? I received your cassette and you were right I just loved it.
It made me feel so good but I thought and still think that I could
truly enjoy it if I was driving alone and listening to it. Tomorrow
I plan on taking a drive and listening to it. Thank you it was one
of the nicest gifts I have ever received. When your second CD comes
out I will be the first or one of the first to order it. I have a friend
who would absolutely love it and this is definitely worth sharing...........Love Ana
I listened to your CD this morning.......I still love it!!!!! I continue
to be amazed at how beautiful it is. It will always be one of my very
It's a Jeff Curtis kind of day
It is very foggy, my house is very messy, I have to get my life back
together again. So the Jeff Curtis CD is on an I am about to embark on
a mission to get organized again. Not that fog goes with your music,
but in a way it does today.
Talk to you soon,
like the CD very much, your sensitivity and joy comes through the
You're a hit!
I gave my dad your CD and he loved it. He raved about your finger picking
and made me promise to get him your next CD too, whenever it comes out.
So congrats, you're a success in Austin, TX!
Hey! Good luck. I listened to your CD and I wanted to let you know I loved
it. It's perfect meditation music for me while I sit out on my deck
in the AM. I hope all is well and good luck in Cali!
Love and Magic,
Hi there! =)
Hey you, sorry it's been awhile since I've been on here. I received your
CD on the 21st. I LOVE IT!!!!!! It's such beautiful music, very soothing
and relaxing for the soul. You are very talented. Thank you so much for
sending it to me. I will enjoy listening to it often.
Again thank you. =)
Love Ya Lots, Melody
Jeff, The wee hours of Monday morning are "evening" in my topsy-turvy
schedule, Mondays-Tuesdays my only days off during the week - with
organizing the benefits, my gigs, recording a new album and a mini-vacation
last week, I've been so busy I didn't have a chance to sit down and listen
to your CD until tonight...WOW!! Your an amazing musician, your soul really
shines through in your music. My girlfriend and my 10 year old son both
stopped what they were doing to let me know they liked what I was listening
to. Like a good book you can't put down, we listened to the whole album,
start to finish. " Country Walk," "Dreams," "Medieval
Forest," "Mystical Pathways," "Finger Lickin' Chicken," "November
Song" and "Rebirth" are among my favorites upon
first listen, but everything on this CD is excellent and inspiring...nice
touches with the flute and viola. Your guitar sound comes through pure
bright - just like an acoustic guitar should. This material really put
me in a good mood after a tiring day playing "catch up."
Keep Pickin' - Todd S.
After traveling on a bus with 40 other crazed hockey fans and coming home
only to change and run out to a Hawaiian theme party for 300 that I was
in charge of...all I could think about after all was said and done was
taking a LONG, relaxing bath and listening to some music...it dawned on
me that your CD might be at work waiting for me...so, at 9PM I ran by work
on my way home to check the mail...and guess what? I am listening to it
as I type...Wow, sooooooo beautiful. I love getting the feel of the rhythm
and the melody, the tone of the instruments...and especially your guitar...I
feel like I can close my eyes and picture you playing...Thank you so very
much for getting this CD to me...I have tons of billing to do tomorrow
and am going to listen to you over and over for hours till I get it completed...I
feel like your music is a friend I've had in the past and just found again...hard
to explain...but your music touches me...Bless you!
So glad I caught your live performance. Your guitar music is wonderful!
Will order CD. Please send listing of all your CDs.
Thanks, Karen M. San Jose, CA
Jeff, I am listening to your music and want to let you know again how
enjoy it. I hear it often in my mind.
More Kudos for you from Jon.......thought you'd like to see this:
> I'm listening to Jeff's music this morning and it's very soothing.
> Thanks again.
Just a little note to tell you that I enjoy all your recordings. The title
is very appropriate since the songs make me feel that I am in a virgin
forest enjoying all its majesty. Or on the top of a mountain on a warm
sunny day where I can see forever. You have a great talent. Thank you for
sharing it with me.
Your soft, sensual, and gentle music
wandering thru the majestic land...
a touch of heaven it would be to mix both
I really enjoyed your CD...thank you. I love the style, the guitar work
is beautiful and the flute gives me something to play along with when I
relax. I wish there were more of a market for it...along with the jazz
CD we're releasing in May. I hate that people buy what's being pushed on
the radio. I guess there's something to be said for being a musician's
I am very grateful that you had sent me the CD, I received it today, opened
and played it immediately. It is beautiful music. I wish I could tell you
that I had the lights out and my candle going and just relaxing, but the
candle was glowing and the lights were off, but I was cooking dinner. I
enjoyed the Faded Love song and All The Same. I don't have an ear for music,
sorry to say, but I enjoy listening. I wish you good luck on your next
Thank you again,
I have managed to put together a new song in DADADE. Its about 95% complete
and it ranks as an A song, amongst my others. I got some A,s and some B's,
and some C's.
Thanks for the tuning!
the only person I know who can actually make soundscapes w/the guitar:
You write some great material. I enjoyed your relaxing music! Definitely
keep up the good work. All the best to you in your career-and may you
sell a million CD's!!!
I have one song written in DADDAD tuning. This is called "double DAD's".
the song is called "Hammerhead" and a sound clip is available
on my website.
I would suggest you consider DADFAD tuning - a lot of material in this
tuning - and not a lot of people use it - D minor tuning.
Lori and I stayed up as well to see the legendary Jeff Curtis on our
very own TV in the comfort of our living room/bedroom (ah the joy of
a studio apartment!). Finally, we were able to see the show we've been
reading about for so long!
And the absolute coolest thing about it all?
WE GOT TO SEE JEFF CURTIS' FACE WHILE HE WAS PLAYING!!!!
I'm guessing the camera man was laying on the floor going for the "under
the wide brim" angle! Seriously though, it was a joy to see an accomplished
musician such as Jeff on our TV set.
All the best,
Mike & Lori
Thanks for sharing those tunings with me - I will have to try them. Starting
to sound like there's a lot of DAD's out there!
I'm glad you enjoyed the show as well - means a lot to me, especially
considering the fact that you are one of the most incredible musicians
ever heard. Listening to your music has become something of a ritual
when I come home from a gig - I "unwind" by playing your CD,
lost in its peaceful sounds...
Thanks Again, Todd S.
is a gift that when you give it away...you end up having more...thank
you for sharing the wonders of your music with me, ~soft whispers~ Joan
I really dig your playing.
What tuning do you play in?
gentle friend from afar,
...music is a part of my world...
I am playing a wondrous CD as I write to you, the guitar riffs float thru
my heart strings and wander tenderly into my soul...maybe you have heard
of this wondrous musician...I believe his name is Jeff Curtis...
big thank you to Jeff Curtis for appearing at the first Open Mic at the
Irish Cottage last night! I had never heard him before, was blown away
finally had the chance to listen to your music and let me tell ya I was
impressed!!! Man I loved it so much. It gets your emotions flowing. I
cant wait to get a CD!!!! I am gonna take it to work with me and listen
to it in my office. You are very talented and I am very proud of you.
Jeff, for blessing my trip home to KC, and for last night and this morning
as I listened to your soul expressed in your music. I love the CD. I
do like the numbers you had picked out especially, but I wonder if #13
is my fave. I'll have to listen and absorb a few more times.
Jeff Curtis - you man!
Ok, I listened to many of the artists on "Guitar Nine" and honestly
you play the melodies I really want to learn. I mean you are there among
all the other artists and I feel fortunate to have found your talents online.
It is folk, is it classical, it is sometimes haunting (in a good way, the
way that make you whistle the tune to yourself) I can‘t wait to get
the CD. Thank you - I have found the music I was looking for in your recordings.
My name is Kate and we met briefly at the Imaginary Bill, Tony Hightower,
Sonny Meadows show. I have a habit of going up to LIMC members and telling
them that I have heard their songs on the radio. I figure that's happy
news that most people like to hear.
I heard your song, "Country Walk" on the old Tri-State Sound
show on WLIR when it was hosted by Brian Mannix. I can't give you the exact
date, but it was sometime last year. I remember the song because it was
especially pretty and different from the other music I'd been hearing on
I heard you play on Guitar Nine. "Rebirth" was so great, I am
buying the CD after payday. I am new and aspiring to play the guitar. I
bought a "bargain-bin" teach yourself guitar CD and it failed
miserably to teach me very much. I know we live in a fast-food world, but
really, I am willing to put in the time practicing. However I do feel like
I would be wasting my money to pay a musician to teach me chords - I figure
I can learn chords from a CD and maybe I can learn to read music too, before
asking (and paying) someone to take me further. Any suggestions? I have
books but the hard part is hearing the piece as it should sound and training
my ear and my eyes to recognize it. A quality "teach-yourself-guitar" CD
must be out there - sleeping with my guitar does seem to help my plucking
and tonal recognition, but it isn‘t teaching me to play music.
Jeff, the CD is so great! Thanks so much! talk to you soon .....Patty
Hi Jeff, I hope you are okay on this 'day after the attack'!
Thanks for Your Great CD!
Darn Jeff, the main thing I wanted to do for weeks was tell you how much
LOVED your CD! and I forgot to do it...anyway...I LOVE YOUR CD! I have
listened to it several times and it manages to settle me down often after
a hectic day.
Todd - the secret with "Rebirth" lies in the guitar's tuning
(DADADE - low to high) and in the syncopation I incorporate into my picking
am in love with your music!
Life is so amazing, I went out tonight to hear Halley, and then maybe
go to the city, for some womens party…well your music blew me away…I
was so happy to be there
Jeff...sitting here going over some listings for some clients coming
into town this week and I'm listening to your music while I work...very
nice way to work! I had an open house today for 3 hours and no one showed
up! I guess that happens sometimes. Anyway...thought I would just say
your music inspires me!
Rob and I enjoyed meeting you and listening to
your guitar. You really play beautifully, which must
be more than learned; it seems to come from a
feeling you have in your heart about what music is
supposed to do for us.
I have been meaning to write for a while. My name is David and we met on
a flight a year or two ago. I had just come from winning an offshore powerboat
race. I just wanted to thank you for the great "Dreams" album.
Not only is it plain old great listening but it turned out to be therapeutic
I design and build custom homes in CT and the day after watching the horror
unfold in NYC on 9/11, I rounded up all the construction crews I could
get my hands on and headed down to NYC to help in the rescue effort. Most
of us stayed for 7 days and a few stayed longer. The majority of our time
was spent on the pile of debris, digging, cutting and clawing our way through,
trying to find anyone alive. Unfortunately, this didn‘t happen. We
had to cut several partial remains out of the twisted steel. I finally
headed home and when I arrived, the whole picture finally hit me. I hadn‘t
lost it while in NYC but the emotions took over as I pulled into the driveway
with my pregnant wife looking out the window. Long story short, I was an
emotional wreck for quite some time. I‘d watch the news occasionally
and it would all come back. After a couple of months, late one night, I
finally decided to turn the CD player back on. I opened up a good bottle
of red, grabbed my head phones (not to disturb my wife) and grabbed a CD.
Guess which one it was???? "DREAMS"
Wow! I cried and smiled all night and I think that is when I finally got
control back. Sure, the emotions come and go but your music really helped
(and still does)!
Thanks Jeff and the best of luck to you!
I, and everyone that heard you that night were honored to have had the
opportunity to have you share your music and indeed rare talent with us.
customers were still talking about you this afternoon and are begging me
to find out how to get in touch with you. If you have a website? When are
ya gonna get THAT GUY BACK? etc. Our house is yours anytime you wish! I
am sorry for my somewhat rude behavior to my own clientele that night,
but it is a rare opportunity for us to have such high caliber single entertainment
here, and goddamnit I didn't think enough of them were payin enough attention.
If there is ANYTHING that I can do on this end, i.e. media people? advertising?
etc. to help you in anyway get a further foothold here on the west coast,
PLEASE let me know. You may indeed have ANY evening you wish, and I will
do everything I can to pack the joint for ya if I have to go out and buy
brand new cattle prod...
By The Way, Where In NY Are You? Stay In Touch!
