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.
Idd like to, but Ill be at foot ball with the kids from 9am to at least 6 pm WHEW LONG DAY, 2 games 12 and 4 and kids there an hour early each. its also a away game, Im taking a blanket and a tarp for shade so Maybe I can get a nao inbetween. Second kid has to be there with us first also,,, So he wont be very happy about that. Pic nick time for sure!
Ill join you saturday if anyone is up to it. I don't have the premium either.
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?
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.
Say 6:00 eastern [Saturday]?
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.
depending on how long you guys are online i will try to get there for some playing. game starts at 4 our time,, so I may get back by7,, maybe you guys will still be at it.
I have a Rock Choir gig tonight but, with the time difference, I should be back in time to join you guys.
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.
I went out today and bought a webcam cause I was hoping I could join in the skype session today. I have joined skype but I ain't got a clue on the next step. Any help would be awesome.
Look me up on skype if you want to join in- skype username is topdown67
I will be hosting, but not participating (at least initially)
Since my audio was bad at my end anyway, I decided to p[ost the song I did here, so you can hear howit is supposed to sound.

Pete my computer was acting up,but I saw about 3/4 of the video,you did an excellent job on Mind your on business.
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.
It was another Awesome good time tonight. Thanks to all who participated, especially to Ken (who was a first timer) that despite his bashfulness, rocked the house!! Chordians who haven't joined in yet - you don't know what your missing!!
I had a great time skyping with everyone tonight and wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all 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.
Didn't get home till 730 your time and had to change oil,, hope to catch next time.
work work work... always keeping me from the fun fun fun. Sooooooon it will all end. Well, not work... but working for that company that requires me to never have fun. LOL
I had fun also. Ken and Marty, you did great. Zurf, next time you can play all depressing songs for us. Thanks guys and it was nice finlly meeting some of you others.
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.
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.
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.
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 but that's OK cause I know there will be a next time. 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.
Russell.......................I know your reading this so I hope you and others will join in on a future Skype.
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 .
Great to see you were there Ken, hope to catch you soon.
I should have checked in ! you guys would have still been on. if not just to say hello for a few min
