Yeah Dave, Lucky Lisa!
If you would have stayed a little longer, she remembered she had a copy with her and showed us who were left. No pun intended. Hey Tom, If you have tab for "Tennessee", I would certainly be interested. That is one of my fav's and it's rare to find a piece by Ed in DADGAD. Also, thanks for bringing the Bari, I really liked playing my version of Louise on it. I have cleaned up my rendition of "Moonglow" quite a bit and hopefully will have a complete piece in hand by next Fingig. Thanks to all who listened patiently to my "rough cut".

Has anyone besides me encountered Jim Steinke, a fine picker who occasionally plays on the sidewalk at the Sunday Farmers' Market on California Ave. in Palo Alto? He's a Jorma disciple and I'm thinking I'll take a lesson or two from him, although he lives clear over in Oakland.

Thanks to Mike Nepper for the invite and thanks to Tony Loeser for hosting! I had a great time and look forward to future events! Stu got me inspired to relearn Ed Gerhard's "Tennessee"!

Opened my fresh new copy of AG today and there's a full-page picture of Lisa! Page eighty, uh, three, I think.

Yep, twas a fine git t'gether! Ditto on the kudos to Tony for hosting...what a fine room to play guitar in. Mike, here's hoping you'll be feeling better and more energetic soon. Nepper...thanks for the kind words re: Red Mtn. It's a fun piece to play when done right...wasn't quite so much fun yesterday! Thanks to Geary for bringing a little "class" to our gathering by doing some Classical on a steel string. Looking forward to next Sunday with Tom and Lisa (and Doug too!) at Mission City.

Yep, thanks Tony and all who came. Sorry to be a bit of a shortfall in energy and skill - wish I could have stayed the whole course!

Hey all, just a special thanks to Tom Lamson for bringing Mr. Yamamoto's latest baritone creation along and allowing us to try it out. The thing is absolutely gorgeous - from the wedge body with sound port and built in armrest to the amazing tonal qualities each person was able to pull out of it in different tunings. Thanks Mr. Y - I think this is your best effort yet!

The fingig was a wonderful experience for me. I was a pretty good picker a few decades ago and for the last few months have been working my way back up. The chance to sit with players who are way ahead of me, in such a friendly and accepting atmosphere, was solid gold. And special thanks to Tony for hosting it.

+ 1 on fingig-was-a-winner. Here's a hearty welcome to Tom and Dave; we're glad you could make it. Nine players today, wow!

By the way -- I've got an extra capo over here. Red, Kyser. Geary?

Don't forget, next Sunday, Doug's Mission City thing is an all-peninsula-fingerstyle affair.

Well, let me say that was a really fun FINGIG 12/13 !!! 2 new members and some mighty fine hardware, and some awesome tuneage as well. I thought I was the bravest soul to play my new arrangement of "Moonglow", but after thinking about it, the nod should go to Stu for the Gerhard piece "Red Mountain Serenade". That is one brutally tough piece and he did it quite well! Hats off to you my friend..............
