Love it! But now I wanna know the origins - I thought it was an old Irish Drinking Song.
Congrats JX3. When are you moving to Florida? By law, New Englanders are required to establish residence within 5 years of retirement.
In all seriousness, if you need a break, I've got a spare room and a full liquor cabinet - well not quite as full since chordiestock, but the booze store is close!
Welcome to chordie Marshel. I have no experience with carpal tunnel, but I wish you the best of luck!
This is a little late, but I've been busy. My good friend Zurf conspired with Topdawg to obtain this killer Squire short-scale bass and gifted it to me during chordiestock. He was also kind enough to bring me a book so I can learn how to play it!. As a bonus, it matches my Strat perfectly! Thanks Zurf! Now if only I could learn to play one of em.....
Beautiful Guitar -Happy NGD!
I think most folks I know here are on facebook and have seen the photos from the weekend, but is a sample for those who are not (Dirty Ed ). I am happy to say that CSV was a success - the level and quantity of talent that gathered on Saturday was AMAZING!
Ken, we're sure gonna miss you too, I believe other than Zurf and Southpaw, you have made the most chordiestocks. At least we will have some Dirty Ed tunes to listen to - thanks for that, I am sure we will be playing and singing along with your music! Hope the knee is healing well and we look forward to having you back next year!
CSV starts in 4 days - Banner is up!
That guitar has Beamer The Metalizer written all over it. Happy NGD buddy!
I've got the full size big brother of this CA and love it.
Dylan - at Doubleday field in Cooperstown a few years ago
It was awful. Placed was packed - but many left halfway through. I stayed for entire event b/c I'm a Dylan diehard no matter what. My wife and daughter left to go to local bar for drinks. At the end- I kind of wished I had left with them.
With that being said two years later I saw him in NYC and it was great.
Guess everyone can be lousy some nights.
Sounds like the time I saw him. He was touring minor league ball parks with Willie Nelson. Willie was awesome, sang every popular song, interacted with the audience. It was a joy to see - actually brought tears to my eyes, seeing this American Icon.
Then came Dylan - all electric amped to the max, totally incoherent vocals and not a single song recognizable. I left early. I still am a huge fan, but man was that disappointing.
That's why I didn't see The Who last year when I was in Vegas. After the fiasco in the Super Bowl half time a few years back, I didn't want taint my love for Pete and Roger by witnessing it in person.
Concert i missed `Chordie Stock`
seen a few vids but much more next time please.
Sure hope you can make it some year EB!
This party will be staring 3 weeks from tonight. I ordered some custom collector drinkware for the big event. If there are leftovers, I'd be happy to ship to any previous attendees.
I can't name any specific tours, but there are bands that I have never seen and wished I had the opportunity or made the additional effort to see. Off the top of my head:
- The Who - probably my all time favorite rock band. They just never came close enough for me to see easily. I sure wish I had made an effort when they were in their prime.
- Led Zeppelin - I was only 16 when they ended, but I have friends who saw them and I wish I went.
- Pink Floyd w/ Roger Waters - I've seen the Gilmour led version several times, but always felt that I never saw the true Floyd. Roger is coming to Tampa in July - maybe I'll finally get to see him then (even if it is on a Tuesday night )
- Clapton - I'm a huge fan and he certainly used to tour enough, but for whatever reason I've never had or made the opportunity to see him.
That's a pretty short list - I've probably been to 100's of concerts, I guess I should feel lucky that I've seen so many amazing shows.
Ah but the tree pollen is a real killer though.
Ark - Palm trees give off very little pollen
Topdown ... your killin' me here, man!
Come on down anytime TF - I've got a spare bed and rum runners on on me. Chordians are always welcome!
Y'all really oughta come on down for chordiestock
That was freaking hilarious. Love bad lip reading
Re: February 2017 FSOTM - Amie - Take me Home, Country Roads (40 replies, posted in Featured Song of the Month)
Even though the month isn't even 1/2 way through, I declare BGD and Zurf the winners. I guarantee nobody had or will have as much fun playing these tunes as these two did. Please pick a good SOTM for March - perhaps we can record a chordiestock collaboration!
Knowing both of you, I am sure a good time was had. I only wish I could have been there!
Bummer. With all the recent cancellations, it seems Zurf may be the only true chordian traveling to the event this year. It will still be a great party with plenty of local friends, put perhaps "chordiestock" has run it's course.
Seems to me that you and that PA were destined to be together!
2 months away!
All these NGD posts are putting me in the mood. Need Pics!!!
Sounds like you go a hell of a deal. Happy NGD! - looking forward to seeing the pics
- The ACC one again proved they weren't the pushover conference everyone thinks they are
- I am very nervous facing Green Bay with 2 rookie play makers, that said the home team has won the last several times we have met in the play-offs, so GO COWBOYS. Whoever wins this game I will be pulling for to win the Super Bowl.
