Fred and I love to perform live, and it's kinda strange how this all got started...
When we travel with Little Feat, we sometimes get asked to go to radio stations to do promotion for shows, and "could you please bring a couple of guitars and play a tune or two?" was always one of the "requests" we would get.
We realized that by playing these songs with just two acoustic instruments, it put a whole new spin on the material - made it more bluesy, rootsy, almost folk like - and we really started to get into it.
We were asked to come to Japan and play some shows, and that was the beginning of our spin-off career as a duet.
