It took me awhile to recover. Yes, I have been practicing the G patterns and Chris Newman's finger exercises. The little finger is starting to come down. I also graphically did Kathy Barwick and John Goldie's chord system. I will send it to you along with the signed instructor photo.
When I got to the airport, I was told to attach my gig bag to my main luggage. I interlocked both, then interlock them together with the TSA luggage cable. It was gone when I got to Boston.
