The Stark Sessions are bare-bones song studies shot in high contrast black and white with no dialogue, allowing viewers to focus on the tune at hand. For this session, the song, “Colored Aristocracy”, is broken down into melody, drone melody and then chords are added along with a backing track.
Bing teaches the tune “Fly Around My Pretty Little Miss” on mountain dulcimer in the key of D, tuned DAD, and then cranks up the backing tracks to audition the song for “Mountain Dulcimer in the Band (Book 8)”.

Bing teaches the tune “Shaving a Dead Man” on a Folkcraft Instruments LAP-JO hybrid mountain dulcimer/banjo. Also, a sneak preview of “Mountain Dulcimer in the Band (Book 8)”, and Bing receives a surprise phone call mid-shoot.

A full-blown music video for Bing's new song, “ChatGPT (Been Very Very Good To Me).” It started January 20th with Bing singing the chorus melody for fun, and ended up two weeks later as both a new single, and his first official music video!
