Hi UJB
how's it going I enjoyed watching the videos with you and your friend playing guitar and singing. Are you and him still playing music together?????
Good to see your still around.
Pete

Thank you. Yes we still play together. We played for about 6 hours at a birthday party a couple weeks ago. My fingers were mush by the end of the night. :lol

Truth.

Forums have been suffering for years as the tech allows for more instant communication. The younger folks seem to not want to take the time to wait for a forum response.

Bingo!! I rescaled the browser window to 90% and the OK button became active.

Just for information purposes;  normally I have the window set at 110%. Old eyes need a little help. lol  At this setting the OK button does not work.

So the OK button is not OK?

It does work. But I had my browser magnified to 110%. At that setting it did NOT work. When I reduce it to 90% it works

Oh Zurf. You can't seem to catch a break lately. So sorry you've had to endure so much heartache in such a short period of time. I'm not quite local but if you'd like to get together for a little music therapy, let me know. It's less the 1.5 hours to your place and I'd be happy to make the trip. Seriously. smile

Well Zurf. Might I make a suggestion to help open up and free your mind from past challenges.

OK. I will anyway. big_smile

Zurfapalooza 2021!!!

What better way to break free from the mind block than having a handful of friends over to help unlock that long repressed creativity gene. smile     

My vote is in. Good luck! smile

Well, would we expect anything different in this crazy year ?

We just got about 28" of snow dumped on us in 12 hours.


Jim

We came at half of the predictions and ended up with about 12".

My mom on the other hand took the full brunt of the storm. She's about 75 miles south of you and is buried under 22"

2007 Martin DC-1E. It's been my go-to for 5 years now.

When I want a little more sound I'll pull out the 1982 Alvarez 12 string.

Lost another one.

Country music legend Charlie Daniels passed away this morning after he suffered a hemorrhagic stroke. He was 83 years old.

Daniels was a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, and his best known recording was his 1979 single “The Devil Went Down To Georgia,” which was released with The Charlie Daniels Band.

Born in Wilmington, N.C. in 1936, Daniels grew up listening to Pentecostal gospel music, bluegrass and country. In the mid-to-late-1960s, he worked as a session musician in Nashville. During that time, he played on three Bob Dylan albums (providing guitar and electric bass work), as well as playing fiddle on the Marshall Tucker Band’s early albums.

In 1973, Daniels reached number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 with the novelty song “Uneasy Rider.” Two years later, he would reach the top 30 (with The Charlie Daniels Band) with “The South’s Gonna Do It Again.” Finally, in 1979, he reached number 3 on the charts with the aforementioned “The Devil Went Down To Georgia,” which also earned Daniels a Grammy Award for Best Country Vocal Performance.

In 2008, Daniels was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, and in 2016, he became a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

“Charlie Daniels was a reverential innovator. He was a fiddle-playing bandleader, like King of Country Music Roy Acuff. His music fused the immediacy of Southern Rock with the classic country storytelling that he heard as a child in Wilmington, North Carolina,” said Kyle Young the CEO of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum (via press release). “He brought new audiences to country music, pointing people to the sources even as he explored the edges. He was also a delight to be around, always with wife Hazel at his side. Just as fiddler Johnny did in the famous song, Charlie Daniels beat the Devil.”

Daniels is survived by his wife, Hazel, and son Charlie Daniels Jr.

That was excellent.  It is a very difficult song to sing !


Jim

Indeed it is!!
With the capo I don't know what key you're in but I do it in D and it presents a challenge. But that's the way I learned it and I'm too old and lazy to relearn it in another key. smile

Yeah, since my dad's funeral I hadn't been playing much. But with this lock down thing going on I've been at it a lot more. I've found that you get rusty when you don't play for a few months. lol

Wow Zurf. Sounds like you have about 100 hours in that thing. Hope you get at least that many hours of playing from it. smile     

I still have my skype. We used to do that too.
