I am considering a half day kayak fishing charter on Saturday morning if I can work out the details. Let me know if you are interested. Jeff, how far is Clearwater?

Just bumping this up as a reminder. A little more than 2 months away. Zurf, Amy, Wayne, and Scott are confirmed plus Robert and Bill and some of my local friends. Anybody else making plans?

Please come to LA, she said no.  You better come home to Jim.

And Jeff said, Ramblin' Mom why don't you settle down.  L.A.'s not your kind of town.  There ain't no gold and there ain't nobody like Rosco.  So please, come on back to Madeira Beach.

Hi Chordiestock II Attendees- I am driving down from Virginia and will get there Friday 22 Feb and probably leave Monday 25 Feb. I am trying to get a condo near Topdown's condo in Madiera Beach. Anyone need a place to stay - let me know. I am working the timeshare system to see if we can get a 2 or 3 bedroom condo for the week - or at least a few days. I will bring my new Plek'd Epiphone Masterbilt, my 12 string Takamine, and maybe an electric/amp/mike set. Let me know if folks need anything. I will fill the old Lexus up and head south.

I don't care if Hell freezes, as long as I've got my plastic Jesus

Masterbilt, Martin, Tele and Nighthawk, Minarik Lotus....what cha got?

Re: CHORDIESTOCK II - Feb 22, 2014

Hi All

Is there a dedicated banjo section on Chordie? If not, how do I search for songs with banjo chords please?

Hi gas welcome here you should start your own posts though. You can get any song here transposed to bango if you look on the right side of the song you will see a place you can change it from guitar to bango.  (use the tuning section)

I could seeeee the fog last year. It's for work though, and they pay for the flight and room so I can't complain too much.  I will be right in downtown this time, at the Bonaventure.  I wish they'd send ua to FL instead fir a week though. Lol

Re: CHORDIESTOCK II - Feb 22, 2014

Still tryingto talk my son into using his guitar LOLOL I just can bring myself to put the Ovation in the hands of an airline.  Anyone know if you can get extra Ins. for it for the trip?

Re: CHORDIESTOCK II - Feb 22, 2014

Some airlines will let you, others won't.   United considers them irreplaceable items and wont even cover damage at all (clearly I won't have any instruments with me in LA as my company's got me flying evil United).   So, check with the airline you're flying, or maybe send it out a few days early via UPS and hold for pick up at the local station to grab it when you get there?  Jeff has me convinced to bring my Martin and gate check it to FL.  Southwest isn't evil. Lol.  But remember, Jeff has plenty of guitars and a new gibson just dying to be passed around. Ha ha! 

Just a few more weeks!!!!  Whoo hooo!

Thats a good tv show zurf,I would go but I will not be in florida ( now I am missing two good things). I am betting the exhibit will be great.

Re: CHORDIESTOCK II - Feb 22, 2014

Mythbusters sounds like fun, but I have to ask - Will there be guitars there? Will there be booze there? As I believe the answer to both questions are no, I think I'll hang out with fellow guitar playin', booze drinkin' folks that weekend. I can see the exhibit some other time!

Re: CHORDIESTOCK II - Feb 22, 2014

I think we both know that there would be booze there, but possibly not guitars.

I checked it out.  Looks like tickets for the museum are $25 each.  If I was taking the family it would be a positive stop... however, considering I can purchase some vodka for the same price, I think I'll hang with Jeff this time.  wink

It's difficult to argue with that logic.
