From recent comments, it seems that even those still active in the group are fading. I propose we speed things up a bit - take the rest of May to finish the exercises in the first half of FE#1, and then move on to songs in June. Regarding FE songs - if you are anything like me, it takes maybe half an hour to 'understand' a song, a couple of days to 'play reasonable with tab at reduced pace,' and weeks to months to smooth out / add to repertoire. To keep things moving (NS2013), I suggest we shoot for the middle and try to cover 2-3 songs a week. Of course, you're free to detail anything that catches fancy, but I don't think we can wait for everyone to master every song. Any thoughts?
