Usually when the first Tuesday falls on the first day of the month, our turn-out is dismal. It just catches everybody off guard. But our March 1st meeting was fairly well attended, with 12 players and one guest, our friend Ron Labrecque. Mike Clark came up from Ft. Collins, Edith came down from Wheatland. Also some folks we haven’t seen in awhile were Larry Jacobsen, Jeannie White, and Ed Heffern. So it was a good (and talented) crowd for our March madness meeting.
Rick brought not one but two group songs. Only fly in the ointment was our last half dozen meetings or so have been sparsely attended, so we had to share the eight copies around the circle. The first effort, ‘Down On The Corner’ by CCR was pretty raggedy- you know, the usual… But The Youngblood’s ‘Get Together’ turned out quite presentable.
David not only brought us a tune we haven’t heard in awhile (as is usually the case) but he also brought us a visual aid, the album containing his musical offering! I might add, he did this at considerable personal risk; his better half was turning up the heat for this album to be returned to its proper place. He hung tough tho’, and said it would stay out until AFTER the guitar society meeting. We salute your bravery, sir.
