Any real promising students? I like listening to some of Phil's students (and daughter).
Rarely...

I have a girl that has been taking lessons for about two years now and I recently taught her a basic version of Elizabeth's Cotton's "Freight Train" finger picking style. Took some time but she's getting through it and I have her playing it at the beginning of every lesson so she'll stick to it. Taught her older sister years ago who also had some real motivation and although she's not taking lessons anymore I've been told she still plays! :)

An adult student of mine has been the second guitar player in our band for four years now - not too bad either. He's still taking lessons to refine his technique and knowledge.

Those are the ones that are fun and make teaching rewarding while others probably only pick up the guitar for the lessons...

(Oh - I've got another lesson tomorrow - I'll have to practice a couple of minutes tonight!" :lol:

A couple others may be promising but it's too early to tell...

Yes - a dozen is pretty good.

The weekend - I am so ready for a couple of days off - the band did a Trio last night, Means two of us get to sit out, which is fine by me. 8-)

If it wasn't so damn cold I would go car (SUV) shopping.
Since it snows like crazy where we are moving, I'm thinking it's time to give up the Mini Cooper and get something a bit taller.
Maybe a Jeep Compass or a Buick Encore - unsure yet which way I want to go, but I am NOT getting anything too big :!:

You are moving to a place where it's snowing like crazy? :shock:

Wouldn't Florida be a more appropriate region at your age? :mrgreen:

Yeah we used Zillow to save houses in Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Colorado and New Mexico all southern states with little to no snow.
Here in Detroit we get maybe three feet from November through February.
In Traverse City the get about 11 feet from October through March - call me crazy!?! :D Yes, yes I am.

I figure we'll go shopping in October and buy enough food to last until April. :shock:
There's a reason Go (my wife Margo) has been a care giver for more people than I can count. We have one more - her dad's wife who lives up there.
85 and healthy than me, but Go wants to be there for her.
I have no complaints - it's beautiful country up there 8-)

Our company has an office 30 minutes from where we'll be and if they'll have me - I'll work.
If not I've got 3 bedrooms, so VIN is covered . . . ;)

Found out an old drummer I used to play with moved up there in November - 12 minutes away :lol:
