I'll get these out to you hopefully NLT SAT - I'll try to get them out tomorrow - but, it depends on work stuff. I'm assuming you can share/copy for Larry also. They are in QuickTime, but if you don't have that you can download a free copy of it. talk soon, va
Hi, Jim. Thanks for getting in touch. Peaceful Bend was fantastic, wasn't it? I enjoyed your playing at the Tim May/Brad Davis workshop/jam. The only problem with that jam was where I happened to sit--my breaks immediately followed those of Tim and Brad. Not too hard to figure who was going to come out on the short end of that one!
Jim - glad you like them. I need to ship out several other copies for other folks. Hey, I was wondering - do you think any of the pseudo-local folks would want to meet up at Peaceful Bend maybe once or twice per month to jam? Maybe we could communicate via ning or email and come up with a list of tunes - maybe some vocals - you sing too don't you? I forget everyone who sang as well. Bill (who has the house in Rolla) and STL sings - but, he hasn't sent his email or anything...anyway, I figure Katie and Clyde wouldn't mind - we could start a SUN afternoon/eve jam???? Just a thought - it would be cool to have some good songs worked up. I'm definitely in - if anyone else is interested. val

I play two-thirds of a guitar. I have some wrist issues with fretting the 6th string. I enjoy finger picking but have been an avid follower of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for about 6 years. I find Dan Huckabee's beginners arrangements great for the bari-uke. I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
