I'm hoping things are going better for all with the new year. I put in some miles last couple months. Couldn't play much and traveled without my instruments one trip. Well, I finally fell back into playing and enjoying again. Life and developing better playing skills made playing feel too much like a task. But now it is fun and things seem to be falling into place musically. With better fingering techniques included! Had all the amps on last Saturday. 3 guitars and a keyboard to go to at the ready. Cornet too! Enjoying the bass and 6-strings so far this evening! I have a Dr. Demento CD on atm with hours of his show to play. Sometimes life is good. But I work at it. I hope ya all can get back into the swing of things if the holidays put up some roadblocks.
