I was there :-)  Nice evening, smaller turnout, especially after last months Vicki Van blowout, but Mark played some really great tunes, and  Quinn was a very nice discovery.

For those who weren't there, we're doing something different for April. It hits on Easter sunday this year, and I don't know, apparently the church is going to be doing something that day...  I was going to just cancel, but I have this Japanese guitarist coming in, touring the area and I feel bad canceling on him, so the plan is to do a house concert at my place. Hope you can make it, and help him feel welcome. The name is Hiroya Tsukamoto and he seems to play real nice!

Also, the Woodshed is shutting down for at least the summer after the May 3 show. I'm working on good show for that month, and trying to decide what to do next. Ideas welcome. Could call it a good 10 years, could take a summer break, could find another venue with more comfortable chairs :-), could do something completely different. Thoughts welcome.

Hey, I missed the Woodshed! Anybody go and how was it?

That's a great idea, Tom!

Thanks to all for coming by and playing some excellent music!

I suggested a song "Barbara Allen" that we might all try to learn and we made some progress. It's just 8 measures and repeats until we get tired of it.

My favorite version of it is heard here:

Here's a quick and dirty arrangement I did. (I didn't leave enough room for the time signature but it is 3/4)

See you all next time!

Thanks to all for making me feel welcome at the fun fingig!  Thank you Tom for inviting me into your home, and for your hospitality. 

I really enjoyed hearing all of you play.  I have much to learn, so if you are willing to tolerate me on the low end, then it is my pleasure to grow musically from all of you.

Yep, fun fingig.  Nice to meet you Larry.  Thanks for having us over, Tom.

Fun, relaxing afternoon of music.  Nice to meet you and welcome to new member Larry.  Thanks for hosting Tom!  And this time we even got homework!

Had a really nice afternoon Fingig at Tom's. Thanks to Tom for hosting again and to new member Larry for adding his music to our little fingerstyle fest! Life is sweet!

Also, want to mention for you Andrew York fans, I saw him play his tune "Mechanism" at the International Guitar Night on Sat night. There were posts later on FB about that tune which for several of us was the highlight of the show. Anyways, check it out if you have a few minutes, it's worth the time. It is in Dropped D tuning.

Tom, sorry, I meant for Pierre's gig.  Unfortunately I have a prior engagement this afternoon, and won't be at Fingig.  Have fun, the rest of you!
