I mentioned this online workshop I'm planning to do this afternoon. I'm going to try to see how StageIt works for teaching a workshop online. No idea how this will go, so anyone willing to stop by and let me know how it plays out on the other end would be much appreciated. My hope would be that it is more interactive than a static DVD-type lesson, I plan to have the computer near me for this so I can see the chat room. And it may have some advantage over in-person in that everyone can be playing along without creating chaos. We'll see! I just picked a quick topic that seemed focused, yet a little different for the first trial run. Anyway, here's the link:

I think I might have to pass on the fingig this afternoon; this poor ring finger on my fretting hand is not quite ready for prime time yet, (I fractured it about a month ago).   :~( 

 ... though I suppose I could come out and listen to some good pickin' and chow down on Stu's caviar.  ;~)

We'll see ...

Hey Stu- thanks to you and your wife stopping by Concannon last night. What a nice spot to play. Always great talking guitars and equipment. I was quite happy with the new Fishman SA-220 and the Esteve cutaway. Not sure if you heard the 12-string being played with the SA-6 pickup but it really sounded nice to me. I still need to adjust the Baggs anthen on Esteve, I thought it slighlty boomy. MK

Yeah Mike, sounds like a great place.  Only problem for me is I have students until 7:30pm on Thursdays so I wouldn't be able to make it.  Hopefully Sundays will open up there in the future.

Looking forward to seeing you, Josep and Doug on Sunday.

Josep and I are prolly gonna carpool to Stu's.

Hey, hope this new place works out, nice central location!

Sorry Stu, but 237 practically runs into it................

Late notice: I've turned up a place to play that I think has a lot of potential, and we're going to try to kick off a round robin show this coming Thursday, the 21st, 7PM with me, Fran Guidry and John Begley. Very interesting place, a Hawaiian Cafe in Sunnyvale, Da Kine, 153 E Fremont, on the corner of Fremont and Sunnyvale Saratoga Rd in a little strip mall. The strip mall's not too impressive, and you might miss the cafe in between the laundromat, cell phone place, etc, but the Cafe is quite nice inside, really terrific food (I've had two meals there so far), beer and wine, with a built in sound system, and pretty big stage. The place is small, but can hold up to 50 (packed in), so I'd call it "intimate", and I think the sound will be really good (we'll see) just based on the setup and acoustics.

Most promising is that the owner is really gung ho, and wants to fill the place with music, and doesn't care if its Hawaiian - he does real Hawaiian Saturday nights. He's hoping I'll do at least 2 thursdays a month, which would be nice, as we could get more people playing more often. This will be a trial run. I'm still planning to do the scheduled Sunday show over in Fremont next month, but if all works out, this might be a new home. He can only give me Thursdays right now - it's complicated - but we might eventually be able to move back to Sundays if that makes sense.

Anyway, hope you can stop by and help us kick this off, check the place out and see how it would work. Here's a map to the place:
