Lots and lots of health issues and I need to be excused again. Have fun y'all!

I'll try to commemorate my one year surgery  by hosting in May or June. I feel really fortunate to be playing again, not  100%, but enough to still enjoy it .

Thinking about Fingig end of the month, any volunteers to host? Maybe Lisa? Heard from Aaron. Finally back to playing again about a year after his neck surgery.

I was there :-)  Nice evening, smaller turnout, especially after last months Vicki Van blowout, but Mark played some really great tunes, and  Quinn was a very nice discovery.

For those who weren't there, we're doing something different for April. It hits on Easter sunday this year, and I don't know, apparently the church is going to be doing something that day...  I was going to just cancel, but I have this Japanese guitarist coming in, touring the area and I feel bad canceling on him, so the plan is to do a house concert at my place. Hope you can make it, and help him feel welcome. The name is Hiroya Tsukamoto and he seems to play real nice!

Also, the Woodshed is shutting down for at least the summer after the May 3 show. I'm working on good show for that month, and trying to decide what to do next. Ideas welcome. Could call it a good 10 years, could take a summer break, could find another venue with more comfortable chairs :-), could do something completely different. Thoughts welcome.

Hey, I missed the Woodshed! Anybody go and how was it?

That's a great idea, Tom!

Thanks to all for coming by and playing some excellent music!

I suggested a song "Barbara Allen" that we might all try to learn and we made some progress. It's just 8 measures and repeats until we get tired of it.

My favorite version of it is heard here:

Here's a quick and dirty arrangement I did. (I didn't leave enough room for the time signature but it is 3/4)

See you all next time!
