Gig Face

Jilda and I have been getting our gig faces on this week. We've practiced hard this week. A funny thing about practicing any particular skill. You work for months without noticeable improvement and then without warning you can do things you could not do before.

I know my blog buddy Joe over at Cranky Old Man can identify. He's a guitar player too and I'd be willing to bet he's experienced this same experience.

Over the coming months, we will play somewhere almost every week. Several of you have asked about us posting videos. We've done a few but I haven't been that happy with most of them. We now have the equipment and software to make that happen and it is my intention to put something together over the coming weeks.

It was a beautiful morning here, but storms moved in this evening making our dogs crazy. I'm asking the vet for doggie downers so that we can sedate them next time storms are forecast. I did manage to shoot a picture of the rhododendron that lives next to the house. It's one of my favorite plants.

Have a great weekend.


  1. I look forward with pleasure to seeing you two perform. "Gig faces" --I like that.

  2. I know the GIG will be great. Would love to be there. I know you guys love what you do.
    Go ahead, knock it out of the park!

  3. I know absolutely what you are talking about. I do not play well enough to perform, but that sudden improvement thing keeps me practicing. Lots of songs I can not play in my head, but when I start to play the fingers know just where to go. Is that also common?

    Have a great request is "Barbecue!"

  4. It sounds like things are going to get very busy there but doing what you love to do isn't really work. The picture is beautiful!

  5. It would be great seeing you perform. I admire anyone who can make music.

  6. Cant wait to see a gig soon. Cranky old man is a trip. Love his blog too.

  7. I can't wait to hear you and your wife perform. This will be fun and am looking forward to it. Now, it didn't work with my phobic dog but my friend had a dog that was just terrified of thunderstorms so she used rescue remedy which worked and she bought the thunder shirt. It's for dogs and it really settled her dog down. I watched videos on it so you may want to try this
