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?"

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!
