The Music For Life program is part of the foundation’s work dedicated to the betterment of the world community through music. “In honor of the love and giving spirit of Jimi Hendrix, the foundation works to improve the quality of life for children and the world, and to inspire creativity in music, arts and sciences,” they proudly declare. They do this by providing children and young adults with musical instruments and instruction without the worry of cost, and the initiative is funded with help from collaborations like this Black Diamond project.

Although it was 1928 when the Dopera Brothers first created the Dobro guitar, it was the mid-1950s when Flatt and Scruggs really started to popularize the instrument with Buck Graves' inclusion in the band. As a result, their bluegrass was smooth and impressionable. Now, with his Harlow resonator guitar in hand, Ferrell Stowe (aka "Stobro") captures his own carefree, restful, and comfortable sound. "Stobro's Blues" and "Carroll County Blues" and "Wayfaring Stranger" have some evocative melodic licks, and the unhurried renditions of various gospel tunes are also great showcases of Stowe's skill. Ferrell Stowe resonator designed string sets. was founded by award-winning musician and performer, Frank Stallone, with his business partner, Gary “GJ” Panepinto. The company started as a passion project to make high-quality guitars affordable to guitar players of all levels. Frank has hand-selected components of the guitar for sound quality, playability, and looks that meet his high standards.
