One day, maybe I'll get to attend and hear this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FINnXz06qic

Anybody know what  song that intro comes from?

"Born On The Bayou" comes to mind.

Y'all have a great time!!!!

There may be an issue there. It was rather windy all day and it really interfered with the recordings. Amy thinks she can filter it out with a program she has. so it may be awhile before recordings get posted.

Re: Backyard Gathering - 2017 - August 5th!

Thanks for putting up photos, Joe!  I heard back and both Joe and Ken made it home safely (Jim was prepared to drive halfway to Ohio if there were any issues).  JJJ and Chris are still in town, safe from zombies.  I just want to thank all of you that came to the gathering. It was so nice to sit and relax with guitars and friends.  As I am on vacation from work for a few more days I'm staying away from the computer... so photos and videos may take a bit of time to show up.  It's kind of nice not being tied to it all day. wink

Re: Backyard Gathering - 2017 - August 5th!

well it looks like I missed out on a good time. cant wait to see the rest of the pictures

out of tune out of key and out of touch

Re: Backyard Gathering - 2017 - August 5th!

I put over 1100 miles on my wife's car but it was worth it once again.  A weekend of music, laughter, and great food. A little rain didn't dampen our spirits and a great time was had by all.

I want to read my own water, choose my own path, write my own songs

Re: Backyard Gathering - 2017 - August 5th!

I spoke to my sister who lives in Elmira. She was also visiting Dad and sis in PA this weekend. She'd like to come with me one year, so I'm hoping we can work it out.

I guess I'll see folks at Uncle Joe's in Pennsylvania come October.  Hoping that I'm not inviting myself to Uncle Joes house and that he was planning to have his gig again this year.

Re: Backyard Gathering - 2017 - August 5th!

Some of the video files I have from the weekend are rather large. Being a novice at this kind of stuff it takes me awhile to cut them down into bite sized pieces.  I just finished this one tonight. The wind and vehicle traffic noise is still there but I did cut out a lot of the "between songs" chatter to shorten it up a bit.

Here's Dirty Ed doing Small, Medium at Large and I follow him with El Paso.

Thanks for posting the video Joe.  Excellent rendition of El Paso.

After sampling the contents of that bottle of Blanton's Single Barrel bourbon that MKD was holding, we had to make a run to the liquor store so I could get a bottle to take home.... tongue

Re: Backyard Gathering - 2017 - August 5th!

Thank you everyone who came to the byg. It was great to see everyone, catch up and play music. Looking forward to joes get together in pa.

Re: Backyard Gathering - 2017 - August 5th!

All in all, I think it was a success.  I didn't burn the house down, MKD didn't burn the tree line down, so that's always a bonus!  wink  It rained on and off all weekend, but that really didn't slow us down at all.  We moved to the porch or in the house when rainy, and back outside when not over the weekend.  Saturday the tents were up, and that kept us all dry in the backyard while the butts were smoking all day. 

UJB stayed nice and dry in the house each night, as his tent ended up a little more wet than planned.  He really did 99% of the photography and videography, and for that I'm thankful!  My hands were full playing hostess, cooking, and trying to keep my glass full.  Our little Ukelele player wasn't feeling quite up to par, so we didn't hear much from her.  A young man stopped by with his guitar, but he was pretty nervous.  That said, I think he's been finding everything that exists online from DE - as he seemed to know quite a few of those songs that he played.  I think Young Joey will be back again next year ready to play a bit. 

I heard that Blandon's has several different stoppers, and they're collectable.  Though, I also heard that supposedly, if you collect them all, you can trade them in for a free bottle!  :0

It was really a great weekend, and the best part wasn't necessarily the guitar time, food, or weather... it was the people.  Catching up with Ken, Joe, Joey, Chris, and one of my friends I only see once a year was the real treat!  It's about the people really, and the guitars that bring us together is just the icing on that cake.  Thank you, each of you that made it out. I'm grateful to know such good people, and to have the honor of your company. 

Looking forward to the PA get together!

I haven't gotten very far with the BYG 2017 Videos, but there's the beginning of a playlist developing here:  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P … WNv--2_2b8

More songs will be added to it each day, so please do check back!

Have you tried running any through Mixcraft to weed out some of the wind noise?

Not yet, but I have converted a bunch to file types mixcraft can open (ummmm... and installed mixcraft on my new computer lol)

Re: Backyard Gathering - 2017 - August 5th!

It looks like everyone that made it had a great time ... thanks for the postings to keep us "remote members" informed. I'll just have to imagine the music, the camaraderie, Amy's cooking, Dirty Ed's fishing stories, and everything else that made this a terrific weekend.

Still going through everything. Here's one that didn't need any work except trimming a little off the ends.
