What's happening August 2016

Recently I was working away again, and took up my main guitar.  Managed to get a lot of playing in, nothing new, just practise on the old stuff.  This turned out to be fortuitous; when I came back Glenn at Cafe Chicchi got in contact with me and I've been playing out there around every two weeks.  It's great to be out there playing and chatting to patrons again.  If you are ever in the Mount Claremont area, check on their webpage if I'm playing on the weekend, and stop by. Make sure you say hello!

I still have "The Chain" to record, I need to get the motivation to get on with it.  When you aren't recording, it gets easier to keep not recording.  If you know what I mean.  Great song, I've done a pretty good job with it if I do say so myself, I'm looking to get it out to you.

I also need to finish making my little guitar USBs.  Did I mention it to you?  I get asked from time to time "where's your CD?" Well, CDs are pretty olde school, I decided I could do better than that, so I bought a batch of USB sticks in the shape of a little classical guitar.  They were around $5 each, 8GB flash, they are a very cool shape although it would have been better if they were hard plastic rather than flexible plastic, but no matter.  I plan on filling them with all my MP3s, sheet music, videos, lessons, and anything else I've ever created.  Most of it is available here, but not the raw videos, so you are getting something you can't normally get.

I was thinking $20 each, and the offer that if you ever see me again, I will swap it with the latest revision.  Each time I make new stuff I will update it.  And I will sign/initial each one.  And you get to talk to me when buying it! :-)
