Thanks for coming out everyone.Thursday traffic down 280 can be really bad, I know I would occasionally try to get to Mission City for the SBF open mic, and as far as I can tell, it's simply impossible to get there in time, unless I leave the night before :-)

But,  I had a nice chat with the owner on the way home, and I think moving to Sunday's are an eminent possibility. Some details to work out, stay tuned!

It was good to see Fran and John again performing with Doug last night at Da Kine. Sorry, I won't be making any more Thursday night trips down that way though. Crazy bad traffic coming from my house basically at rush hour. Maybe if I work late and am in the area anyways I could come............ The venue itself is not that bad. Smaller than the other place but with a cool stage and sound system is decent. Would be ok on a Sunday night. Closer to me than Mission City.

Sorry I missed the Fingig, folks.  But I had a great Father's Day so I can't complain.

Caught Michael Manring and Alex Digrassi at Pacifica Performances- Wow!  Just over the top musicianship.  I have to say Michael Manring's bass playing is just out of this world- as in otherworldly- really something to behold and listen to.  Also the venue was quite surprisingly good-  Pacifica Performances/Mildred Owen Concert Hall.  Had a slight Old Freight and Salvage feel to it  but a really cool and professional set-up, sound was great.  MK

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:

Yes, come and enjoy the the tunes.  And ya know, Mike is fun to critique whether he needs it or not! 

As they used to say, "It's COOL Inside"!  TGFA/C!  It was at least 105 here yesterday.  Gonna have a regular cool down with it only reaching 95 today!  :-)

See ya all this pm.

come anyway if you can. I need critique! Also, we should talk about August.

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 ...
