David, glad to hear everything went well & hopefully you enjoyed it [though I'm not quite buying the "tons of mistakes" line.]
Maybe someday thru the magic of bootlegging or webcasting, we'll all get to hear you. Enjoy your Thanksgiving and let us know when you're playing again.

I first found work in a general store, a general store you see,,
When a woman walked in with a question that was just too much for me
So I asked the boss what kind of girdles we sell here at the store,
"Rubber," he said, and rub her I did and I don't work there anymore.

Sorry - I thought I did! It was in the November 1 newsletter...

Got one coming up on Friday, December 15, again at the Monterey General Store. I'm backing up local songwriter Joel Schick. And when I say "backing up," I mean actually being his "second guitar" and not opening for him. Show's from 7 to 9.

And Mike, the "tons of mistakes" line is quite literal. I never play a song without making at least three to five of them (I usually stop counting after five :wink: ). As I tell my students, the only way I know that guarantees no mistakes is not to play and that's simply not an option.

Peace

Man, all these gigs up there makes me wish for just a minute that I was back in New England. You guys have fun!

Great quote David! :D I also find that most times I'm the only one who notices the mistakes, unless it's a really obvious one like your strap & strap button parting ways, and your guitar crashes to the stage during a song. :shock: Oops! :oops: Sorry folks! :roll: :wink: :lol: **straight to guitar store next day to purchase straps locks! **
Good luck on your next gig David. 8)
