This is the first I am reading this topic.

 

I had mentioned same to Steve last Fall by private message and offered to carry most of the water but he didn't bite so I figured he was too busy and it was dead.

 

First I learned anything might be happening was a brief comment Steve made during live lesson 2/24/15.

 

I attended the last two of these events (my icon is an otherwise ugly ovation guitar signed by artists at the last one 2011).

 

I would be very interested in participating in the next one be it 2015 or 2016.

 

If I can help in any way, please contact me.

 

 

Hey Mark:

 

Here's the updated tenative schedule for 2015's gathering:

Alright.........after talking with Steve and getting a feel for the ligistics involved with a formal gathering, it is apparent that it will have to be scheduled for 2016. Working on this and I will be back to you with a little survey to acquire some feedback!

The next item that will be addressed is an informal gather for 2015. This is all tentative at this time. I need to talk to Steve one more time and I will post a seperate survey for feedback on a possible informal gathering in Nashville during Summer NAMM Thursday July 9th thru Saturdeay July 11th. Please standby for additional information. "I'll be back" (in my best Arnold voice) :)

 

Popeyetsm, whoops, I mean Arnold, unless a lot of people absolutely want/have to go to NAMM maybe we should consider a time other than July 9-11.  Because NAMM is so huge and it fills up hotel rooms that may be why the rooms were so expensive that I reported.  If we consider a less "peak" time we may get more reasonable room rates.


Guitars: 2013 PRS Paul's, 1972 Gibson ES-325 (Used by Steve on Live Lesson March 29, 2016), 2012 Fender American Standard Stratocaster, 2011 Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe, 2015 Epiphone Casino Coupe, Walden G740CE, 2012 Yamaha Pacifica
Amps: Fender Blues Junior III, Boss Eband JS-10, Boss Eband JS-8, Fender Mustang Floor multi-effects amp, Line 6 POD HD500X

Study materials:
L&M Guitar: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1112 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
L&M The Song Hits: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
L&M Blues Guitar: not started yet.
L&M Guitar Set Up and Maintenance: not started yet.
Piles & Piles of other stuff I've purchased and not started yet!

M- I hear you and I have been concerned with the dilemma that this time frame appears to be having on the scheduled gathering and the feedback from forum members as to cost and lodging. The date was selected based on prior gatherings and NAMM for the intertainment value that is brought to the city during this week and to enhance the gathering and all in attendance.
There is no one person who can select a date that will appease everyone and their schedules and situations. If someone has a method to select a better date, then I am open and flexible to serve the whole. This is not about me, I am only trying to facilitate an LMG member gathering. Consider this an open discussion for review and making adjustments, if that is what is necessary to provide the best opportunity for attendance. This is a members decision, but I fear opening this up is akin to opening Pandora's box.
I have deferred to Steve and his local connections and abilities in trying to make provisions that would assist in defraying the cost of lodging. I have emails and phone messages requesting additional information. I know Steve is busy and does not need the added burden, but we should give him a chance to respond and assist in this decision. Steve and Greg are key individuals and their time and schedules have a major impact on this gathering!

Thank you
