Sorry for taking so long to get back here. Our internet was down all day. So I spent the day going through and renaming all the videos. There are 44 total. A couple of them are just idle chit-chat but I'm going to include them when I upload to YouTube. I have 8 uploading right now. When I was labeling them I numbered them as well so the whole series will be in chronological order.
Thanks to everyone that came. It was great to see you again Zurf. Sorry that you went under the weather and couldn't stay the night. I'm looking forward to a Zurfapalooza next summer.
It was great to meet Robert (Topdawgz) after our first meeting a couple years ago fell through. He added another dimension to the group. The height of the evening for me was he and Scott did a song called Mexicali Blues. It fit right in with his "Troubles in Mexico" theme of the day. Even though they had just met a few hours earlier you never would have guessed it. They sounded like they'd been playing together for years. It may be a couple days till I get videos from that late in the evening uploaded. Thanks again for stopping in Robert. It was a pleasure meeting you.
And Jim and Amy. What's there to say? It's a real pleasure hanging with you and I always look forward to seeing you guys. Jim has made amazing progress in the 2 years I've known him. Quick side note Jim. More wrist. Less elbow.
We couldn't have asked for better weather. Woke up to a crisp morning which quickly turned into sunshine and low 80's for the rest of the day. We set up in the shade of some big, tall oak and hickory trees. The light breeze under the trees made for a perfect day. A complete turnaround from last years rainy weekend.
The weekend weather was absolutely beautiful, the guitar time was wonderful (or "something like that")...
The theme of the weekend along with "play through it"
...Let Jeff know that Steph will be impossible to keep out of the car next year, as long as Dexter is expected to be there. I'll make sure she practices up. We look forward to seeing you all at the next slightly North Eastern event, be that perhaps a little south of here or right at our home in July/August next year.
I'll let him know and will certainly be coming to NY next summer
Hey Uncle Joe, thanks for having me... I really enjoyed that fellow who was playing bluegrass tunes. That made the night a little brighter.
Thank you for coming. That fellow (Mike) had hurt his fingers a couple years ago and was just getting back into it. He was hoping we would be doing it again this year. He was a bit disappointed when I told him it was a once a year event but I expect that we'll get together when we're both there on the weekends.
And since I got distracted while writing this, the first set of video's finished loading. Here's a bit of the early afternoon. If I screwed up any of the song names let me know. I'll fix it
