    Thought some of you near Luckenback might be interested in this.

    They're trying to put together a Guitar Ensemble for the Guinness World Record book. There's even a chart for the song they're playing.

    James Burton is doing one in August in Louisiana. I've signed up to attend. Any proceeds benefits his foundation.

    I was in two of these. In '90 and '91 I think. In Santa Cruz, California. They are fun--you get several hundred people together playing the same song together for a couple of hours. I remember one of them was Presley's (You Ain't Nothin But A) Hound Dog.

    I wish i had known about it sooner. I would have chosen Texas as my vacation instead of Florida. I can't go till september anyway. Good luck, and bring that world record back to the home of the electric guitar, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
