    I'm Looking Forward To It

    I'd like to meet some other players. Name: Chuck Foster, I'll bring a '52RI and an amp. As I live quite a distance away I'll probably stop in Livermore and pick up a bucket of chicken.

    If I remember, I can bring a music stand. How about a guitar stand or 10? I can bring one of those.

    Lotis - man, that is one serious list of equipment, especially the amps!

    How does the minidisc work - do you use an "audience" mic, or take a line out from the mixer (which wouldn't catch amps not going through the board), or what? Can you burn CD's from the minidisc so that we can distribute copies to everyone who's there?

    With the minidisc I just plug in a Sony stereo mike. It records real good if I get good mike placement. I got a '64 Princeton Reverb I might bring too if I feel real ambitious. Looking forward to putting some faces and pickin' with the names. Lotis

    hoping that can i play with your toys???

    i'm hoping that i can try a few licks thru the 66 bassman. i used to have one and it sounded so very fine. and then i'd like to take a few minutes with one of the Hamel equipped Teles. i've been able to kick my GAS habit, but with this jam coming up i can feel the stirring in my gut...

    and of course my stuff is open for messing with too. tho probably the only thing that i have that's of any interest to this group is my Mesa-Boogie Studio Caliber amp.

    and, hmmm, if people are open to an acoustic jam out back or something, i'll bring my Martin too.

    this is going to be sooo kewl!!!!

    Ronetele -

    Definitely bring your Martin. I'm going to bring my Martin, mandolin and fiddle, and others are bringing acoustics, so I think that an acoustic jam would definitely be a possiblity.

    Could be time for a 45-minute jam on "Sally Goodin'"!
