"Just thinking, do performers have to pay to get in? Any line up longer than 2 people I can't handle. They must have been giving away something very cheap for a lineup like the one above. Cheers Taff."

"That was fun, Rick.  Just made it home.  Tired, but happy.  Linda has not decided if I get to go in 2023 or not.   She somehow got the idea that some of you are a bad influence on a poor old guy like me.  Nahh.."

Last Night. Live from the Watchtower Stage.

"Thanks Danny! It’s a nice little guitar gifted to me by UJ. I think, guessing, he called it old red. I agree, hopefully Dave had a front row seat."

Youtubing for Dave's music and getting linked to yourself was another great find, not being one for commercial radio while working in my workshop over here in the U.K I now can listen to play that house of cards, (how bluesy is that) and what a guitar tone;-) I feel like I've been to San Francisco and yes It is a Mad World, but in a Richard Sundberg Kind of way, great videos, great music and please keep posting, because somewhere in the world there's somebody enjoying your music.

Thanks for the green light Richard! If you don’t have a PC, you must be using someone else’s or a tablet or a phone; Zoom is free app for all. It would be great if you could Zoom with us. I am going to touch base with a few CBN regulars that I hope will be willing to cohost the jam with me. If they are game and we can nail down a date and time, I will post it on the events page as a first step in getting the word out. This could be a great opportunity to connect in a new way. I currently Zoom with a weekly CBG builders group in Sacramento hosted by Will King here at CBN and I really enjoy interacting with the guys! Will keep you posted.

Food for thought: A CallyFest Zoom jam for Cigar Box Nation enthusiasts. I am willing to host it. We could use songs from the Slinger’s GDG 1-finger songbook. Only 250+ songs to choose from. I could lead the songs or we could share the leadership of the songs. You choose the leaders and they choose the song or songs they want to lead. Once the songs have been chosen, I can create a downloadable songbook of the songs for the jam in the order we do them. We can normally do 15 songs in an hour or so. I’ve got some ideas for interaction between the participants that is more Zoom friendly. If we do the Zoom session early in CallyFest, I can record it and then break out the songs and post them and/or post the whole jam at CBN. What do you think?

Hi Richard, I just love reading the comments on your page. Lots of laughs. Say, I’ve forgotten how to make an mp4 file and how to send it to my friends for collaboration videos. Could you help me again in your spare time (like you have any to spare)?
