OOPS

I accidently sent out a message to all of you via email.  It was supposed to be my attempt at starting a new discussion.I was thinking it would be cool to hear some of your styles or interpretations of songs.  Some try to play a song exactly as the original.  Some add their own 'flavor' to a song on purpose.  Other's, just because of the way they play normally end up changing the way a song is played.  Some of you have some amazing original songs that you wouldn't mind sharing with us.Anyway,…See More

Ah!  At first glance I thought it said "Steven A. Smith" (erstwhile ESPN annoying commentator) !!

I'm originally a Baton Rouge native, so I do know the region where you're now living.  The population density and ten lifetimes' worth of 8-months'-sauna weather finally got to me in '98:  I moved to the Coeur d'Alene area in January 1999.  My wife is a Bonner/Kootenai County native, so the fit was immediate.  A few trips back to what I used to call "home" have reinforced the sanity of that '99 decision. 

Last month we were in Sandpoint to hear Leo Kottke at the Panida Theater.  That's the kind of small-venue where I first saw Leo in Baton Rouge, so that show was another kind of "coming home" for me. 

Give me a shout whenever you're headed this way.  The Bitterroot Valley is a beautiful area.  Hope you find a place there that fits your dream.
