Hi Don,
Thanks for contacting me. I was wondering what happen to you.
Learn some tunes where you can sing and play and I'll meet you at Artz some Sunday to jam. I've got some good picking friends we can hook up with.
Last weekend in Austin was a Corpus reunion put on by Tony Merswah(?). I saw Annette Adams,Sid Sanchez,Gary Mcahaney,Mike Gershman,Jeff Burke, Chris Stevenson,Max Hudson, and others. You would have loved it.
Still in NSA but we only played once last year and twice this year. I've been jamming with Gershman on my 5 string electric bass that I customized and refinisned black cherry red. Play funk stuff. I love to slap and pop and practice new techniques. I still jam reg. on bass and guitar at bluegrass jams. Went to bay area bluegrass festival a few weeks ago and saw Micheal Cleveland and Flamekeepers with Jesse Brock.
I bought a Clarence White d-18 a few years back which is my main squeeze. I had stainless steel frets put on it which I love -no wear after a year and a half of playing. I still have my hd-28v which I love but I am trying to sell on craig's list cuz I never play it. The d-18 has the wider 1 3/4 neck and that works better with my bass fingers. Still have the capo you gave me and it works great. I worked for Elliot capos here in Brenham for 4 months but it was too hard on my hands. Pam, my wife and I built a house on 3 acres near Washington-on-the-Brazos state park about 2 years ago and I love living in the country. Need to find a part time job to make about 500.00 a month then I would be in good shape. I come to Austin a couple times a month, let's meet up at Artz. your friend, Steven ( or Shreba as Mike and Chris still call me)

Don,
My two daughters live in Denton just north of Dallas. We go up there. Let me know when you go I would love to see J.D.
I know some jammers up there also.

Don, maybe we have picked together before. Steve is a great guy and a great musician. Where is Lago Vista? Jerry

Don, I saw a couple of shows at Artz. One was with a 40's swing type of band with a girl I graduated with from high school in Michigan. Good music. I'm looking for someone in your area for my business. I'm in the de-regulated energy market. The person I'm looking for would be a good leader type. do you know anyone that might fit that description? Jerry

Hey Don,
My banjo playing friend Dave and I are going to the bluegrass festival in Overton, Texas this Fri. and Sat. It is just east of Tyler. The headliner is Lonesome River band and Sammy Shelor is giving a banjo workshop at 6pm Sat. We are spending Fri. night in Kilgore at a motel 6.
Maybe you guys want to come over and check it out. I've never been to this one but I have been told it is good. Go to Overton Bluegrass website and check it out.
Steven
