    Hey John, thanks for putting this site together and thanks to Danny and all for PicknBow. I could only attend on Saturday – my job reared its ugly head as it has frequently lately, c’est la vie – but I did learn a lot about navigating the fretboard and I loved the open tuning session. Sorry I missed Sunday and the performances but appreciate this blog is here to hear about other experiences and keep abreast of upcoming festivals, guitar tips, et al…thanks to you all and looking forward to the next PicknBow.
