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..............

Pickers, saw a beautiful Breedlove SA22 at B Street Music in San Mateo. Auditorium size body w/sharp cutaway, black walnut back & sides, killer sitka bearclaw top, wonderful neck, ebony fretboard, sounds dynamite. They are confused about the price on this thing, I've gotten $2600 and also $3450 for a price on this thing, should of bought it at the $2600. If you're looking for a new axe and want to haggle, could be a great buy. I'd hate to see this instrument go to somebody with too much $'s and not enough skills to do it justice.

Hey y'all,
just so there is no confusion, Ken Gaugler had a death in his family and needs to be out of town this weekend, so Ken, our condolences to you and your family. Be well, and I hope we can enjoy your lovely home for some future event.
Thanks Tony for stepping up short notice to host our little group in Paly.
