Very Nice DE - reminds me of the Gibson L-OO's that I have been looking at for a while. It's amazing the sound some of these smaller body guitars produce!
Thats horrible and wonderful at the same time. Loved the announcer dude. Lol
Purty guit Jim. Happy NGD!
DE - I only caught the tail end of this story (the tooth part) while you were sitting around the breakfast table at CS last week. I am glad to have heard the rest. Hilarious!
Those are good thoughts. Next time I will ask that no recordings be made unless the person being recorded agrees in advance.
Great seeing you and your family again Joe. You are most definately welcome every year. Here's a group shot.
^ Looks like an excellent selection of instruments and libations DE!
I think it's both hilarious and slightly disturbing that this thread is about discussing booze as opposed to what guitar everyone is bringing. Priorities!
LMAO Joe - I told you this was a party!
DE - I've got a handle of Devils Cut with your name on it!
LOL - I just counted, I have 17 bottles of booze, but scotch isn't one of them . Rum, vodka, bourbon, gin, Irish whiskey, but no scotch. DOH!
I use Car Wax on one of my guitars regularly. Being an old car guy, my go to products are typically from Meguiars.
Of course, that guitar is my CA - completely made out of Carbon Fiber.
I bet beamer could put a real nice polish on that one - next time he makes it to chordiestock!
would love to, and when I do make it I am bringing My polisher since now I have enough backups that i dont have to worry about a broken one.
Well this is certainly timely bringing up this thread . No worries Beamer, I won't put you to work this year, but my truck sure could use it!
i have no idea. We should restart it...maybe put together a new box at Chordiestock this year?
I think that's a fine idea. I kinda like the way the package started simple, with an envelope of picks, but over time it included, CD's, tuners, a harmonica and various other musical related items. I suggest if we start it again, we keep it simple - just guitar picks. Then we can again watch the package grow as it goes "Around the World".
the fried piper is probably more accurate.
i dont think i am going to read this thread any more, i hate it when i miss a good party
Well then you need to make plans for next year! It's always the weekend after the change to Daylight Savings Time. 03/16/19 next year
I plan on bringing a Nashville-tuned travel guitar Zurf, but I'm just trying to figure out whether the other guitar should be my Martin or Blueridge that have pickups installed or just one of my campfire guitars that have already been baptized with adult beverages and sand.
Safe bet - bring all 3!
BTW Jeff, will we just be playing at your house? Will we also do a "beach" jam or play at one of the local watering holes as in years past? Like JJJ I'm trying to decide which guitar(s) to bring.
I'll share the post I put on the FB event page for those who aren't on FB or otherwise may have missed it:
OK - There are some newbies coming this year, so I thought I'd share the "agenda" - there really is no agenda so please feel free to come and go as you please. In addition to back porch pickin' daily from 10AM to 2AM, this is what typically shakes out:
WEDS - Paul will be here and Joe will be arriving, right now I am thinking we will head up to Seminole Mickey Quinn's for their Open Mike.
THURS - Most of the out-of-towners will be arriving, so it's airport / welcome day. Casual jams at my place, usually order pizza for dinner. (i'm contemplating changing this up to corned beef and cabbage for those who need that traditional St. Paddy's day meal, sine I won't be making in on Saturday)
FRI - Set-up, prep day - maybe happy hour at DS? Sunset jam weather permitting. Dinner? - unsure.. (Robert is bringing dinner)
SAT - Party day - Folks usually start showing up anytime after noon. I'm going easy this year, just making burgers, dogs and brats on the grill. If anyone wants to bring a side, feel free.
SUN - Bloody Mary's at DS at noon (because that's what I do every Sunday ). Casual afternoon, then we take over Toney Hall's jam at Jimmy's in IRB Sunday evening (still to be confirmed)
MON - Clean up and GTFO day!
Florida liquor distributors are about to have a great month.
Photo from last year - I'm gonna need a bigger table this year
Beamer mentioned that this might be the most chordians at any chordiestock yet and he may be correct, Along with DE, we now have me, Zurf, Normtheguitar, Beamer, BGD, JJJ, (that's 7 regular contributors), plus ex-moderator Southpaw41 (Toney) and Topdawg (Robert), and UJB is still a "maybe" - so potentially 10 of us total. I do believe that qualifies as the most chordians ever at a CS and possibly the most ever to gather at a single event. That's AWESOME! Throw in the 20+ non-chordians that are coming and this is turning out to be another great year!

I usually wear a hat when playing for others so the reflection from the top of my head doesn't blind them. Also ear plugs or ear muffs are a good option for the audience to be wearing.
Friday I'm playing in the annual Foothill Folk Society concert at Ohio University Chillicothe campus. The theme is "Campfire Songs and Stories" so we'll be on stage dressed as "campers" telling stories and singing songs around a fire, surrounded by tents, rafts, canoes, kayaks, paddles coolers, etc as stage props. I haven't decided what "special clothing' I'll wear.
Well picking guitar and dressing the part in that sort of environment will be a stretch for you, oh Great Soiled One, but I have a feeling you'll be able to pull it off somehow.
Reminds me of the story bout the bunny rabbit and the briar patch Have fun Ken!
Several years ago a wise man named Wayne said you should wear a hat every time you pick up a guitar. I have heeded his advice ever since
Yeah, but if Jx3 travels 1500 miles by bus with an L2, doesn't he get a wrinked, dusty suit and a skinny black tie as an award or something. I think he should.
In addition to the suit, that kinda trip with that particular guitar certainly deserves a Blues name. Sticking with the JJJ theme, I'm going with Joey Jailhouse Jefferson
^ JJJ - If you don't want to travel with a guitar, I've got a couple of spares you are welcome to borrow.
Jx3 and UJB in the same room would be awesome! I always seem to get you guys confused, so it would either add some clarity or be very confusing to see you together (likely dependent on the amount of bourbon I have consumed). Hope you both can make it!
There is no rookie tradition as of yet, perhaps someone will come up with one? Of course a shot of your beverage of choice will be offered!
As far as other instruments go, as long as it doesn't plug in you are welcome to bring along whatever you can squeeze in your suitcase. We will have a percussionist here (Cowboy) and I have a small assortment of shakey and bangey and jingly things, but more are welcome!
