What's happening January 2009

Well, not much is happening.  I went to "my country retreat" over the holidays and even though I have a steel string and a nylon string there, I only played once in 2 weeks, and even then nothing new, just a refresher on all my standard stuff.

So as it stands, I'm still working on getting "Mad World" up to playable; noodling with "Head over Feet" to make sure it plays well; I'm still also noodling with "Space Oddity" which is coming along nicely.

I recently got in touch with a guy who had been playing with some of my Pink Floyd stuff and does Pink Floyd stuff of his own.  I've been working on a guitar arrangement of "Great Gig in the Sky" for a long time now, it's coming along nicely but it is not high priority and it would be years before I finished it.  I sent him a copy and a quick vid of my playing it and discussing what I'm doing with it, he seems keen to run with it.

I may have mentioned before that I have a long long term ambition to do a fingerstyle arrangement of the whole of "Dark Side of the Moon".  He likes the sound of that and may put his hand to assisting - which means something might come out within a decade!
