If I had my POS Plec'd, I wonder if I would be able to play any better (smiling ruefully). Right now I have a broken and infected index finger, so I can't even play fingerstyle. I have a gig coming up with Shannon Miller, a great young singer, so I'm hoping for a fast recovery. Shannon and I will be playing at the "Last Sunday" festival at Blake's in Berkeley at the end of the month. But it is not a FS gig, so flat-picking should be possible for me.

Just the same, it is really frustrating to have a busted fingernail. The silence is deafening.

Sounds highly energy consuming.............I was actually thinking of having it at my house this time, but haven't got a firm on that yet, but working on it. Stay tuned.

Two frickin' jobs trying to go full tilt, and other such topics not appropriate for this board. Various musical projects that aren't getting the attention they need.

So hey, when's the next FinGig? Sadly, I was in Europe when Doug's evening happened. Should I host something soon, or are other folks claiming the slots?

Thanks CR, those were excellent.

Algerian French guy? Did he happen to be named Pierre? Did they form a cigarette company? (OK... perhaps a little too much free association)

I used to plant myself upstairs in the little room and listen to him nearly every Friday night Magical times, they were. Sometimes Michael Manring would join him on fretless bass, once this Algerian-French guy joined him and the two of them blew us all away.

Is this early Michael Hedges?

He'd even do the occassional Beatles cover.

Anyone recognize this guy? This is only his second ever performance at the New Varsity in Palo Alto:

Sometime history is being made while no one takes notice.
