Thanks for the update. :D

I once played a cat and got all scratched up. I should have waited until it was made into guitar strings first. :blink:
Jell-O curtains are the best of both worlds. Just don't eat the curtains. :whistle:

Yesterday was wonderful. It started early at 8am with the Morning Guitar Workout. I had a room filled with about 60 guitarists and we stretched and did finger exercises and several other warm up techniques. I'm already thinking about what I can torture them with this morning.

After that it was more group lessons for myself and Will Barrow (piano) while the stage was getting set up in the ballroom.

After lunch, we had our first session together. It was a slide guitar workshop with the legendary Rick Vito. If you've ever watched a Ford guitar commercial and heard that slide guitar starting up on the Bob Seger song "Like A Rock" then you've heard Rick Vito.

He was funny and a warm and gentle person. What great playing. He hung around afterwords and took pictures and signed CDs and things. What great instruction on playing slide and muting the other strings while playing slide.

This year we have a camera and a projector right up front so we could see exactly what he was doing with his hands.

Greg Voros had his first day setting up guitars. It was a full day but he had another renowned guitar tech, Tyler, helping him. People were going in and out of his room all day and into the evening.

The guitar hang room has been going non-stop for 2 days now. Everytime I look in there there are people playing together and swapping ideas or just talking.

Sorry to be so short but I have to run off and get things set up for this morning.

I'll try and post some pictures.

I wish all of you were here. It's a wonderful event.

- Steve
