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.

Nepper is my go-to guy for all things mechanical (he works on stuff at tolerances greater than .0001"), and CR is an MIT grad, so both are super-techies compared to me (I am a mechanical idiot . . . I only recently learned that a phillips screwdriver is NOT milk of magnesia and vodka), so after listening to them talk about it and getting to play a before and after guitar, I am sold. I understand the scepticism, most things that sound too-good-to-believe are just that, but there is real value in this pleck process.
