Shortly, I will be updating the club schedule on our blog schedule our next meetings for our standard 2nd and 4th Tuesdays at the Western Country Diner.
I don't see any problem with the 8th of November, and I personally don't have any problems with the 22nd of November, but if the 22nd is pretty close to Thanksgiving so we might want to think about this date a bit later in the month.
I've added three names to our email list -- Eric Clark, Shawn Gann and Marcus Messimore-- so when you club old timers see them next month, let's give them a big welcome.
Please be thinking about selecting some songs to do on the 8th. This is your group and we want to do numbers you like. How about selecting 3 songs either from our song book or new ones you will share with the group at the next meeting that your like, or would like to learn or on which you would like to improve your technique?
And while we will not, a a group, be giving any performances this holiday season, want to do some Christmas season songs? I really like "Christmas Cookies" (in the secular group) and "Mary Did You Know"(in the religious group). You probably have some favorites too. So if you want to share some of these bring along some song sheets to share or let me know and I will try to find one.
I now have a lot of the songs in our club book in a Walkman and can play them at our meeting, so if we want to hear how the "professionals" play the song, we can do so. They key that they use may not match our song sheet, but at least the tempo will be good and you can refresh your memory for the melody.
Hope you can make it on the 8th.
Lastly, if anyone is interested in a weekend informal gathering at the Troubador's Emporium (a shop in the back of the Persimmon Hollow) let me know and I will see if there is an open time slot.
