Also -Big News - I cannot state the details yet, but there is rumblings that a special surprise guest "star" will be attending! Got a feeling this is going to be the best chordiestock yet!

Its mid November here in southern Ohio with 15 degree temps and 3" of snow on the ground.  If this is an indication of the coming winter, then I'm REALLY looking forward to being in Florida in March. wink

Thanks for the offer Jeff, I'll bring a tent, sleeping bag and air mattress and just find a corner somewhere to sack out for a couple hours each evening/morning or whenever the music stops. I'll be bringing the LAG acoustic/electric I bought a couple months ago and some new songs......

Re: CHORDIESTOCK III - 3/13/15 - 3/15/15 - save the date!

So far we have 8 or 9 chordians confirmed representing 5 US states and 2 other countries. Plus the 8 or 10 local musician friends that are gonna join in. We have several guitar players, a handful of bassists, some killer vocalists and a drummer or 3. This is looking to be the best chordiestock yet! Tents in the backyard are welcome! Make your plans and get on down to chordiestock III in March!

Hey chordiestock folks - I've had one of them fancy digital photo frames in my closet for about 4 or 5 years now - never had the motivation to load up any pics. I thought it might be cool to load it up with photos from the previous chordiestocks and have them scrolling for this years festivities.  I snagged all the pics I could find from chordie and facebook, but if any of you previous attendees have photos available, please email them to me or send me a link if they are posted somewhere on the net. THANKS!

Baha ....:)   smile  smile   I was just reading all the posts about chordiestock 2015...... sounds like the first two were a blast !
I can kind of picture this in my mind - reminds me of the post I put out about  my song The Sun Is Burning Out, that had the video of all those singers sitting around the kitchen table jamming - but some how on a bigger scale.

How many have attended in the past ?

Where is  # 3 being held ?

Anybody got a couple of pictures from past highlights?

It seems like it's truly a music family global event .

Thanks Dino - I already grabbed the ones I found here on chordie so don't go through to much trouble. I was thinking some of the past attendees might have some I haven't seen yet.

Hi TIJLIK,

This will be the 3rd year for chordiestock, held annually in Madeira Beach, FL (Tampa Bay area). It all started when an English chap (Normtheguitar) took me up on my invitation to crash on my couch - sounded like a great reason for a party to me!

The gatherings typically run between 10 and 15 pickers / strummers / bass players, including some local friends plus a smattering of spouses. Top of my head I count 9 different chordians who have attended and several will be returning for a 3rd year straight. I know of at least 2 confirmed newbies coming this year.

Links below are threads from previous years and include some photos. Please join us if you can - a great time is pretty much guaranteed!

I mentioned this to a buddy of mine (Dirty Ed knows him as Garuchi), and he thought it sounded like a lot of fun. I'll be giving you a call Jeff.

The previous 2 were a blast but I'm thinkin' this 'un's gonna be legendary !

Give everything but up.

Re: CHORDIESTOCK III - 3/13/15 - 3/15/15 - save the date!

14hrs 36min or 957.3 miles whichever comes first. Not out of the question since I'm not working(my choice) right now. What a 72nd. birthday(3-21-15)present to self it could be. Can't commit right now but will confirm one way or the other as time gets closer.  Will stay in tent in the area if possible.I can play guitar or mandolin equally as bad.Prefer to travel with mandolin.

I've got about sixty miles to drive.  Then the pilot takes over, and Jeff does the tail end.  It's a good life I'm living, and I'm grateful for it!

I guess I haven't got around to making a 2014 album yet.  It's only been 10 months.  Get off my back.
