I have to write another comment. I just listened to your songs. I loved them. (sounds a lot like Jack Johnson). I especially loved "Home to You"...... made me think of my youth. I loved your lyric "criusin down Lakeshore in a hot Trans-Am" Made me think of growing up in Cleveland Heights, when we were cruising down Mayfield Rd in a red Plymouth hemi. I suspect we'll meet some terrific people at this jam session. See you there.

Thanks, Rick
I'll probably attend by myself. If I bring my wife and/or daughter, I'll let you know.
Sounds like it will be lots of fun. I haven't played with other people in a long time.

See you then,
Sam Lester

I'm very glad to hear about the jam session on Oct. 30th. I will be there. What time will it start? I don't know yet if I will, but can we bring relatives or friends?
I look forward to meeting all of you,
Sam Lester

Richard, I'm so glad you like the K-Levers. How are you doing with hammering on with the lever? Keep in touch.

Just listened to "Home To You"-beautiful pickin' and a really pretty song. You have a really nice voice.

I like your little apple head Yorkie!

Yes Richard, full body Breedloves, like my dread are boomers. I like my Taylor, and it sounds great, but it's anemic compared to the Breedlove. I have an Aunt in Lancaster, Pa. and have always wanted to get to Nazareth, but haven't yet. However, maybe my hands are weak, but Martins and Gibsons have always seemed to have much harder playability for me. Maybe all the dozens that I have tried over the years were not set up very well. I have still always wanted a Martin and Gibson in my family. I will have to check out your music. Take care, Jim

I just visited your page and listened to your songs......they really sound great. You're a one first class musician...vocals and git-tar playing is spectacular. I really enjoyed all the songs and Home to You is my favorite...I'm getting ready to have my wife Trish sit down and listen.

Guess you folks have had a mess of snow and freezing weather for a while...I've been to Cleveland several times...nice in the Spring, Summer and early Fall...but , the Winter can be ...brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....cold. Still, it's lots better than Madison , Wisconsin where one of my brother in laws live and work. I don't dare head that way this time of year.

Anyway, I enjoyed your music.....stay warm and keep cranking out that good sounding music......go grab yourself a big ticket label and go big time!!!!

I look forward to hearing what you've done with the Open G. Keep me up to date.
Thanks, Greg

Thanks for the friend request; granted without reservation. I hope to someday make the pilgrimage to Nazareth, but I suspect it won't be this year.
