"Had a great time at the Berlin Coffeehouse gig this past Friday night! After the gig it was still early so Teri and I walked around town and visited the Maryland Wine Bar, where I talked to the owner and we agreed on setting dates for me to perform…"
"I am using extra lights and tuning it in standard tuning. When the neck was reset they left the saddle high so it can be cut down over time. I really think it won't have a problem with extra lights strings on it though. It is not my main stage…"

Greetings James...so sorry I won't be able to make to Newnan this weekend, gonna spend time with my daughter and grandkids from Alaska, have'nt seen them in two years....you guys have a great time.
Hi James......working on my schedule today to see if I can make arrangements to be in Newnan this Saturday for some front porch pickin'. I think it will work out, if so,I'll let you know by Friday.
I know you like (as do I) Dan Fogelberg...do you play one of his called "Make Love Stay?" The original on the album was from the 80's and it is pretty upbeat...but his live versions were much more mellow and slower...beautiful really. There is a live DVD he has out that is really incredible, but the best part in my opinion is the acoustic set he does in the middle of it...really great. He even does a fingerpicked blues tuine that he plays slide on...not typical Fogelberg! It is called
"Dan Fogelberg Live: Greetings from tthe West
and there is also a CD audio version of the best of it. If you haven't seen it, it is a must have!
