I had a blast playing with everybody Sunday. Thanks for hosting, Tom!  Good seeing everybody.  My guitar is like new, though the wood is already opened up.  I'm loving playing it!  Thanks to all who gave her a try and gave honest opinions.

Many thanks to Tom for hosting yesterday's Fingig at his comfortable home. It was great to see everyone again after coming back from major hip surgery last April 16th. I got some good suggestions for a new guitar teacher here in the South Bay. I hope one of them works out. I want to learn some Bach Lute music, and a few other Classical pieces, too. More later!

For those who haven't heard, we are in the process of selling the house and moving out of the Bay Area, probably Auburn, or thereabouts. I will keep y'all posted as to where/when we land. It will likely be a very busy next couple of months for me but I will certainly see some of you at the Mendocino Guitar Festival in August.

A really fine time at Tom's Fingig this afternoon with the group including Lisa, Doug, Stu, Ken and I. I think I speak for all when I say that Lisa's guitar repair and Plek was well worth the wait. Lisa's little Custom Mermaid Carter was beautifully transformed by Gary Brawer's shop in SF. The belly split and lifted bridge are hardly detectable now and the neck and action is perfect. The voice is now pure, balanced, articulate and has the volume and sustain it was meant to have. Nice playing all round and good eats too! Thanks everybody! Other than being up right now in the middle of the night with an allergy attack, I couldn't have had a better day!

I got a thumbs up for Sunday from Ken Gaugler a little while ago. Just getting back around after a major hip replacement surgery!

Really too hot to do anything today! Looking forward to a cool afternoon at Tom's this Sunday. Temps should be comfortable.
