I've got a lot to be grateful for this week. First off, what a terrific trip to Nashville with traveling companions Chris Welborn and Jake Ryan Coleman. Many thanks to Chris for driving through the night and getting us home safe....all so we could spend an extra day in Nashville and still be back at work today. It was great catching up with monster musicians Kira Small and Scott Fernandez. Thank you both for showing us some great restaurants.
It was great seeing Andy Irvine, and meeting Jon Giroux for the first time. Really enjoyed the new Warwick/Framus lounge....what a great space with a great energy! I really enjoyed trying the LWA1000 out with various potential cabinet combinations.
Grateful for the SuperVan. She's a trooper. Long may she run.
Came home at 6 AM Wednesday morning. Hit the ground running with a full day of lessons starting at FAYM and Forte Music. Got some great news from the mighty Michael Dimin about my tour up into New England in April....more on that shortly!
And very stoked to see my Rock For Strings group at Forte Music Studios growing! I took Monday off, and I came back to a group that has literally doubled in size! We are now larger than some of the local high school orchestras. I'm extending a hearty welcome to all our new and returning members. Thank you for joining the group this semester...it's an honor to have all of you in the group.
Very grateful tonight.
