Re: Any Skype this weekend? (21-23 Sep)

Haven't heard anything.  I'm almost always up for a 1:1 session, but I haven't got the Premium membership yet. 

Saturday evening would be best for me if anyone cares, if I'm not at the nearby lake doing a little fishing.  Friday and Sunday have family plans.

Re: Any Skype this weekend? (21-23 Sep)

What time Sat night?  I may be able to get in a little bit of playing,, or May just sit in for the company and a few beers.  Who can host or maybe share the code so Z can control the goings on?

Re: Any Skype this weekend? (21-23 Sep)

I can host - but I will be distracted as my Wolfpack will be playing starting at 6 on ESPN3 (the computer). I have 2 screens so I should be able to watch and monitor the Skype call at the same time time (using mute on Skype). We are playing a FCS team, so hopefully we will be blowing them out by half time and not needing my full attention (although I'm not at all confident in that prediction)

Say 6:00 eastern  tomorrow? I'm willing to go earlier if any "across the pond" chordians want to join in.

I'm in.  I'll check back periodically to see if the time changes.  I'm free pretty much all day, so no biggie if it does.

Thanks for hosting, Jeff.

Re: Any Skype this weekend? (21-23 Sep)

Having a situation with a child who needs an attitude adjustment this weekend, and I'm just the grouchy old son-of-a-sea-cook to give it to her.  I'm not sure how the day's going to play out, but if I can be on I will be on. 

It's already started.  She was told to bring her laundry hamper down to the laundry room yesterday.  She didn't.  Her clothes from last week still aren't in her drawers, and some of her dirty laundry is on the floor instead of in the hamper.  So laundry is sorted and going through the machines without hers among it.  She will have to do her own this week, or wear stinking clothes to school and suffer the teasing.

Re: Any Skype this weekend? (21-23 Sep)

It was fun guys.  Sorry I had to drop out early.  The real reason is that I don't know any fun songs.  Only horribly depressing songs.

Re: Any Skype this weekend? (21-23 Sep)

I had a great time skyping with everyone tonight and wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all smile for making me feel welcome. Scary as it was, it was a real pleasure to meet, chat, listen and play for you.
Here is the link to a youtube channel that has some awesome tutorials for some great songs.

I had a blast and I'm looking forwards to the next session.
Thanks again and Special Thanks Topdown for hosting. smile

Re: Any Skype this weekend? (21-23 Sep)

It was a LOT of fun.  Jeff (topdown), Ken (KAP54) and I ended up staying on for almost five hours.  I felt like less than a rank amateur as compared to Ken's elegant fingerstyle and Jeff's absolute command of his instrument, but by the 6th beer it didn't matter.  smile

And to second what others have said, join in next time.  There are much worse ways to spend an evening.

One thing I would like to see is some of our veteran players put on some clinics.  I think I could learn a lot of good techniques from many of you if you wouldn't mind teaching.  I particularly would like to see how Zurf does his fill-ins.

Anyway, again, I enjoyed meeting and playing with all of you, and thanks to Jeff for hosting.

Re: Any Skype this weekend? (21-23 Sep)

Sorry I had to bail so early too.  I'm glad I got on for a bit though; its was great to meet a couple more chordians and hear some fine music. 
Good idea Astro (sorry, 2 second retention on names - and everything else too) I'd love to see what Ken's doing and get familiar with some fills and riffs -- any bit of technique will help.

Thanks again!

Re: Any Skype this weekend? (21-23 Sep)

My head has finally cleared from too many wobbly pops last night...but it was well worth it. Almost 5 hrs of good times went by way too fast sad but that's OK cause I know there will be a next time. smile Between Topdown, bensonp, Zurfs, Astronomikals, and jgreen (sorry I can't remember first names and hope I didn't forget anyone) I heard some awfully good renditions of songs I haven't heard in years and some I've never heard but will certainly look into for future songs to play.
I think having a session to share techniques would be a good idea. Let me know when and I'm in, just don't know what I have to offer but I'll try.
Thanks for all the kind words on my writing style. Without getting into crappy details I wanted to let you know how huge it is for my well being to hear a positive for a change. Makes me want to start writing. smile

Russell.......................I know your reading this so I hope you and others will join in on a future Skype.

Cheers all smile

Re: Any Skype this weekend? (21-23 Sep)

Sorry I missed it. I looked at 00:30 GMT but no one was around so I guess you guys got together a bit later. Still there is always the next time smile.

Great to see you were there Ken, hope to catch you soon.
