I'm thinking no Fingig this month. Unless somebody has a time to host, I'm pretty much booked.

Anyways, Happy Holidays to all!

Yes, thank you, Mike, for having us at your place.  As you can imagine, my place was pretty sloppy.  Great conversation, beautiful guitars and playing.  See you Sunday!

Sorry I couldn't be there.  Hope to see you all next Sunday.

Really cool afternoon here today with only 3 of us, me, Lisa and Doug. We had way more food than people but it was way fun anyway! Thanks you guys!

Hope to see some of you again next Sunday at St. James church with Doug and guests Roger Billery and Big Mike Simpson.

Right back at you Jon. Have a good gig!

Rog, the tuning was "almost" good with my HD lights. I kicked it up about a 1/4 step and all is good!

Yeah, folks, sorry - our place isn't going to be terribly hospitable this weekend.  Peter ordered the pump today, to be delivered tomorrow, but when he got to the last page of the order, it said "to be delivered between 12/1 and 12/5.  Bastids!  Guess who? Grainger.  mutter, mutter, grumble grumble....  We're showering at the neighbors' place, and eating off paper plates.  See you Sunday.

Mike, IME lights aren't very happy with detuning. Mediums should help a lot.

I've been tinkering with a couple CGCGCD arrangements, a new tuning for me. I'm hoping for some input on these and maybe somebody else has a tune or two in this weird low tuning? I'm having trouble keeping it in perfect tune on my 12 fret with HD lights. Maybe I'll break out the old D-28 with mediums on it and try that?
