Title: Texas Washies
Post by: PAPPY on October 04, 2007, 10:25:33 AM
Once again Pearl, Texas is coming up this weekend, any of you going to make it this time or will I be the only one there???? Last month after meeting up with all you folks, I got up the next morning with a bad inner ear infection and it is worse today than it's been so far.Can't see, can't walk, sick and dizzy but if it is any better at all I am planning on being at Pearl this Saturday.Hope to see some of you there and this time we'll do your songs...I need to learn new ways to play the guitar instead of just pick,strum..pick,strum that I do now.

PAPPY,
     I think you are woozy from STARING at SHINER'S boob-guitar drawings.  Sensory overload with too much of a GOOD thing all at the same time!!!  lolol   [8D]

Sorry, Pappy, I can't make it this month, either [:(].  I am targeting November, though, and hopefully I'll have yet another forum member who might well be interested that I can bring along.  I have an idea that once I retire in December, I'll become pretty much a regular at Pearl, it was such good fun!!

Get yourself some rest and make sure you take time to take care of you!!

Pappy, How far is Pearl from Rockport? We are planning to spend Jan.Through March down there and I would like to find a place to jam and play a little. I'm just learning and a good jam session is great for learning new stuff. Thanks

Hey Crawdad, if you're talking about Rockport down near Corpus, it's a little over five hours.

Crawdad, I live in the Houston area and spend quite a bit of time in Rockport--it's my favorite town in all of TX.

I could see how you could get to Pearl in 5 hours from Rockport, but even from Houston it is about 3 1/2 hours, so a 5 hour drive would be quite a feat, IMHO.  I go to Austin and then west from Austin on 183, then north from Lampassas.

Here's a link to the website for the event:

http://www.pearlbluegrass.com/

[Edit--BTW, I surfed in and check out the Mapquest link Chad posted--if you take that route, you are in for a real treat!  It will take you through what is probably the most scenic part of Texas, the Texas Hill Country!!  It would be a good choice!).]  

Tell you what, Crawdad, I'm retiring at the end of Dec and will probably spend quite a bit of time in the Rockport area.  I'll drop you an email and find some time to jam together.  I stay in a little nature resort B & B in Lamar, right across Copano Bay to the north of Rockport, called The Habitat.

Hope to see you in Pearl in November [edit--well, DUUUH!!!  I guess you aren't going to be there in Nov. since you won't be in TX till January].  Just so you know, we seem to have staked out a claim under a huge live oak tree just to the west of the side door to the school/community center.  If it's raining, though, there are plenty of places to play inside and even covered play areas outside.  You'll like it!!

That is a neat video on there about the Pearl festival. http://www.pearlbluegrass.com/

Is that you guys under the tree around 15 minutes in the video?

Looking forward to coming down to Texas and spending time on the gulf. I've been retired for a few years now because of health but am doing well now and really like to play but I'm not very good, just love to make music. Playing with new people and also just listening is not only fun but I've learned a lot of licks and different ways to do things. This will be our first trip down south for the winter. So everything will be a experience. See you all in Jan.

That's our tree!! (But that's not us).

Here's a photo of us under the tree:

Hey, for those who might want to stay overnight and partake of what must be some good pickin' around the RV's, I contacted the event organizer and asked if they allow tent camping or limit it strictly to RV's.  Here's his answer:

We allow tent camping or whatever

It might be a bit cool to camp in the winter, but come spring and summer I sure do plan on doing so.  I also asked if we could put more than one tent up in each camping space; didn't get an answer to that, other than .....or whatever--I'm going to interpret that to mean that a group of tents in one camping space is OK.

Sounds like fun to this ol' camper!!

That was a photo taken at the September Pearl Jam--Shiner's camera, I think, but perhaps it was strumsalot's.

Pappy's on the left, I'm the Dugly one standing up, and Chad (AKA strumsalot) and Beppi (Chad's wife, Becki) are to the right of Shiner and his beautiful ChildBride.

I've contacted one more Houston area forum member regarding the Pearl Jam event; who knows, we may get to add another to the mix!

cool place.  we went to watch robert earl keen... my brother met us there.  

by the time the show was over, you could wade, ankle deep, in beer cans.  and robert walked out... it was late...

he just talked to us like people do.  signed our t-shirts and signed shiner's straw hat.  

good times.  :)

i would go there again in a heartbeat.  beautiful country there.

i'm working on my new song, Wild Wood Flower, by the Carter family.  

i only have the first part of it [the lead] for Pearl, but give me a bit... i'm going to write down all of the popular songs there and start getting the flatpicking from my teacher.  he really wants me to get over my fear of playing in front of people, and i truly want to learn.  when i play, and i really get it, nothing hurts.  and everything makes sense.  i like that.  

i hope to see all of you there.

Hey Childbride, that Wildwood flower is fun to play.

Wildwood flower is one of my great accomplishments in my year and 2 months of guitar playing.
When ever I am with my buddies they yell out for me to pick wildwood.

That second part of the song was tricky,  with all of the hammer ons and pull offs.
Good luck with that classic.  I have a good tab for it if you need it.

Looking forward to hearing you do Wildwood Flower, CB.  Will you teach me?

It's one of my favorite songs, yet I've never learned to play it.

See you all there!

Merlin, that's in the same key i'm learning it in... C.  my teacher says that some people play it in A but the lead is a bit harder that way.  

i'm kinda stoked in that i figured out the second run all by myself this afternoon after playing it over and over.  i'm starting to hear where the song is going.  [:)] i don't have all the 'tricks' down to make it cool [the hammers et al] but i'm getting the basics down for next wed's lesson.

Wildwood Flower... hey, first time I'd heard of it.  [:I]

So I looked it up and that Mother Maybelle Carter plays some mean guitar halfway through this (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=ENS4nD0vRKI) clip.
(Don't all these thumb and finger picks look so cumbersome?  But listening to that [and being a fan of Jerry Douglas (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=gukFvG8VbK4)] you just can't help but love the music.)

it makes me happy.  ;)

we got to meet Dugly's SO, Anna... she's a lovely person.  

i was jazzed the whole drive home.  i'm finally getting over my nerves!

and a big part of it was Pappy... he just kept encouraging me... Pappy, you are good folks, my friend!  

Anna took lots of pics; hopefully we have some more shots in the next couple of days!  [:D]

Chad, hope you get to feeling better!  hope to see you and Beppi next time!

I really enjoyed seeing all of you again, and hope to do this again soon!

Kim, I was so proud of you today and it was an honor to sit in a jam with you. Folks this is one courageous woman. I watched her go from a cool,calm, collective person before we got started to a nervous wreck after we started, I mean she was shaking uncontrolably and yet she did the best that she could at that point. Then I watched her reach a point where she wanted to quit but got a determined set in her jaw and slowly began to conquer her nervousness. She fought a great battle and came out victorous at the end. She played Wildwood Flower for us and you bet she made some bobbles a time or two but it was worth my trip over there just to see the way she handled herself during a trying time. WAY TO GO GIRL!!  One of her greatest supporters is the man that calls her Childbride. A little smile at the right time, a whispered word or two of encouragement I think had a lot more to do with her victory today than anything the rest of us might have done. Shiner, your de man, man.You two are a great couple and I have nothing but the greatest respect for the both of you.

Douglas, it was great seeing and playing with you again, I really enjoyed the comradere. Ann it was a pleasure meeting you and I sure wish I could have talked you into singing a couple of songs for us, I think we might have missed a real treat. Hope to see the both of you again soon.

Chad and Beppi, missed you two, it wasn't quiet the same without you. Get well so we can do it again soon.By the way Chad, you remember that little house I built on the Rio Grande last year??? Well today I torn it down by the roots, I mean there's not even a foundation left, I started it four different times and never finished it...man you talk about embarrassing..couldn't even remember how a song I wrote and put music to went. It just weren't my day. I started off by moving my chair a little and getting my finger cut on the blamed chair and then when Doug brought me a box of bandaids to try and stop the bleeding, I opened it and every bandaid in the box fell out on the ground...I knew right then It ain't gonna be your day but I made up for it by all the fun I had.

Shiner, the shot of the jam room above has a celebrity in it. The man with his back to the camera with the blue hat is one of the very few guitar players to be enducted into the Fiddler's Hall of Fame. He played backup for a lot of great fiddlers all over the States and spent several years at the Grand Ole Opery in Tennessee doing just that. He lives in Gatesville and last year I spent one whole day playing with him at a friend's house. His name is Bill Lyell but most folks know him as Wild Bill. What he can't do with a guitar hasn't been done and his ole guit looks very similar to the one Willie Nelson plays LOL.

Take a look at just a few pictues of Wild Bill

He enjoyed meeting all of you two, he has diabetis and his blood sugar went low on him,that's the reason he put up his guitar. I should have been paying closer attention because he loves to play and sing, as soon as we got some food in him he was ok and we played at my brother's till around eleven last night. He owns a few real nice Martins, a Guild, a Yamaha that sound good and several others that I have not seen.

Shiner------our coach being DISTRACTED is the reason why we have a chance at beating y'all.  [:D]  Andy Reid is probably the worst 2 minute coach in the pros.  You wouldn't believe all the dumb calls, poor clock management, bad or non use of timeouts that has cost us points over the years.  UGH!!  County jail it is pardner.  What do you say we do it based on the aggregate score over the 2 regular season games???  [;)]  I'd feel bad ([}:)]) if you ended such a fine weekend in lock-up.  lolol  Good luck; y'all will need it!!!

Hey Pie, man the Iggles were head hunting last night.[:(!] There should of been a couple ejections after that helmet-to-helmet stuff.

Westbrook played well.

Shiner, I was less than thrilled to see the helmet-helmet stuff.  To me, that is just cheap-shot playing and has no business being in a game.  Ejections were warranted.  Yes, IGGLES sucked, especially McNabb.

Actually, just made it home a couple of hours ago.  Stayed in Austin Saturday night, saw an old guitar playing friend I hadn't seen for about 8 years, we jammed together for a while, then AnnA and I hung with Jade for a while Sunday before we drove back to her place.  Had a medical appointment today (NO kidney stones, none for 2 years, I think I beat the curse!! [8D][8D] ).  

AnnA asked me to tell all y'all what a good time she had and how much she enjoyed hanging with the group.  We spent about an hour last night going through her old time C&W cassette collection--she wants me to learn some of the old time stuff, says that's what's popular at the Pearl event!  I'm getting the idea she wants to return with me again--hope so (she's been fighting some pretty severe back pain recently--was off work for 4 weeks, and can only work 4 hours a day now, but she's a trooper and you wouldn't know it if you didn't see the back brace)!!  I'm like Pappy, I'd like to have her chime in and sing a few--she grew up in an environment where it was almost all she heard as a child and even as a young teenager.  She know's 'em all, I tell you!

Looking forward to hearing Wildwood Flower in its entirety, CB--you'll get it, I can tell!  I may even find a version of it so I can play with you, well...................maybe?  

I'm hoping to have a few new ones by the next time I get up to Pearl, too--Pappy found the music for Buffalo Skinners, an old traditional bluegrass/cowboy tune I've loved for years.  I just didn't have time to work it up before this past weekend, watch out for next time!

Believe me, I'll be back (wish I could type that with a Schwarzeneger/Governator accent!).  Maybe December, maybe not, but for sure in January after I retire!!

I'm going to spend some time uploading to photobucket so I can post some of the photos AnnA took.

Maybe if we can't get Anna to sing for us we could hire her as photographer when we hit the big times. Great, clear pictures, one of them was almost to clear and I'm surprised it didn't break the camera. Glad you folks made it home OK and we'll see you next time you make it up this way. Had a great time.

What an great bunch of COWBOYS !!! Looks like really fun gathering. I really envy you and would like so much to be there. Hey guys, don't you worry about smoking cigarette while holding your guitar ?? I've also noticed that most of you guys drive pick-up car or big 4X4... A lot of washburn out there, but someone, should bring an 12-string next time !!

I don't worry a bit about it, by dropping the ashes down the soundhole it provides me an easy short fix at times when I can't take time out to smoke...I just raise the guitar up and smell the soundhole and waalaa. It might hurt the resale value but I won't have to worry about that...these babies ain't going nowhere as long as I'm living.[:D][:D]

We call em pickup trucks instead of pickup car and yes there is probably more pickups than cars in this part of the country because it is ranching country and you have to use pickups to haul feed for the stock, fencing materials, windmill tools and more...plus it's a lot easier to reach the beer cooler in the bed of the truck than it is to get to it in a car. I haven't owned a car for myself since I got out of highschool, I'd much rather drive a pickup. Maybe you could set it up to come see us next vacation time. You'd be welcome.

AnnA has been looking for a camera with a zoom function for a long time and this was the first time she got to give it a real workout.  We were very happy with the way it produced closeup photos, like those of us sitting under our live oak tree, but the camera has a complex process for focusing on things in the distance and the photos of those on stage were less than clear--in fact, some I didn't even post b/c they were very grainy.  I know what happened--I took the photos sitting down and just holding the camera up a bit to try to get the photos over the heads of those sitting in front of us, but the autofocus feature must have focused on the backs of those heads rather than on the players on stage.  Next time, I'll get closer or perhaps stand for a few photos so I can get the focus right.  Also, next time I plan on spending some time in the jam rooms, taking photos of the various jam sessions going on, and post them, too.  This is an incredible event, just a bunch of music lovers who get together for the love of playing together, and it is a great way for someone like me who has never played with others before to get our feet wet in the process.  I'm getting more and more comfortable, plan on joining in on some of the jam sessions in the jam rooms someday (maybe not soon, but ......).  My problem right now is that my song list just doesn't include many songs that are appropriate for the musical focus of the event, but that can certainly change and will.

AnnA loves to take photos and in fact we bring a Kodak Easy Share printer with us whenever we go someplace together.  If anyone would like copies of the photos to take home from the event, just ask and I know AnnA would be more than happy to oblige.

Pappy, here's hoping your cousin will return again with you and also Small Town Bill, my favorite dobro player!!  I think we could get quite a group going.  I've already found out they will allow tent camping back with the RV's, next is to find out how they pick the groups who will get up on stage.  If we work up a few songs, we might get on stage, who knows????  I think I'd be frightened scatless, but there's only one way to get over that, do it and then realize it wasn't as bad as you thought it would be, right?

To get on stage all you have to do is sign up and next time your up here I will introduce you to the man in charge of that. But you may have to do that solo [8D][8D] I'll sit in the audiance and tell you how you did.
The folks down there will play just about any type music you want to play.

No problem, Shiner.  There were more, I just picked what I thought were the best and posted them.  We have more of you, of CB, and of you and CB together, I think--if you are interested, I'll send them on to you privately.  Lots more of you, too, Pappy, and of your cousin and of that lady who sang that song for us--sorry, I can't remember her name [:I] .

As for the equipment, AnnA just got a Kodak digital camera, a model EZ Share C-653.  It's a 6.1 megapixel camera.  It is suppose to take panoramic photos, too, but we haven't gotten time to do that yet, and this one has a 3X zoom feature, too (36mm to 108mm equivalent).

Pappy, won't you consider joining us onstage if it ever comes to that?  Believe me, I don't consider myself solo material!!  Also, I think the audience would absolutely love to hear some of your original compositions--I'd sure do whatever I can to provide backing for you in that endeavor.  No, other than what I've done with you and the others sitting under that huge live oak tree, I've never performed with or for anybody publicly.  It's just an experience I would like to have, for some reason  [:0] .

Well, guys, I think it's safe to say that a good time was had by all  [:D] .  We just need to get Chad and Beppi there next time and we'll be complete again.  Who knows, I could foresee that we might even be able to put together a small group with a few songs if we'd all bring some printed material and practice a little bit, or in my case a whole lot of a bit--it's something to think about, anyway.

Oh, yeah, Ship, you'd definitely be welcome.  As for a guitar, I suspect we could round one or two up for you, unless you just have a case of GAS and need an excuse!  Do you play right handed?  I own two Washburn dreads, so if you play right handed, you could play one and wouldn't feel like an outcast in our little group [:I] .

The Pearl event is always the first Saturday of the month, except for the month of September, in which it is always the second Saturday.  Here's a link to their website, check it out and you'll get an idea for the flavor of the event:

http://www.pearlbluegrass.com/

Don't forget to bring your friend.  From San Antonio I could imagine you need to allow 2, maybe 2 1/2 hours driving time, one hour from SA to Austin, then a bit over an hour from Austin to Pearl.  If you were to take the Hill Country route, it would be less miles, but maybe not less time, as you'd sure want to stop and look at the scenery at times.

Yes, I am sure I might suffer from some gas while I am down there and may have to come up with an excuse or two ( then again I did promise the mrs's an Alaskan cruise this coming year also)I am not sure if my friends can make it though, by the way did you get the e-mail I sent you,side note thing,sorry.As you can see they sure do tour a whole bunch,maybe I should drag you all back down to San Anton and we can all hook-up with the group one nite.Either way I figure seeing how the Shiners never get up this far maybe the mountain has to travel down there to see Texas,I think it might be just what the doctor ordered some sun and warm and a reason to wear my cowboy hat,not that I need one,thanks for the link and I will be pushing real hard to make sure I get there next year, or sooner than later.You just never know with us Canucks,how are the hotels down there anyway.Ship

Nice pics Dugly, thanks for sharing. [:)]

Hey, I like your hat and Pearl Bluegrass badge!  But IMO... you should really upgrade to a white (Pappy/Shiner type) hat. [;)]

Pappy, i'll be sitting out there in the audience cheering Dugly on, too... [:)]  no stage for me, unh unh.  i do love your songs, though!  and i truly hope your cousin can make it back out again next time; when he sang 'walk the line' i got chills, he sounded EXACTLY like johnny cash!!!

Dug, i think that it would be an excellent idea for us to circulate some potential songs to work up ahead of time.  we need to put that on the list.  i'll get with my teacher this week, and see if he has some recommendations; we can email the progressions to everyone... i like it! [:D]  i just ask you throw in some simple ones for me until i can take off my training wheels... [:I]  and those pictures were phenom!!  i was showing them to some of my co-workers today... [giggle... they are getting to know who all of you texjammers are... they recognized peeps from the last round of pictures!]

You know, Pappy, I was curious about motels, myself.  I go through Lampassas and there are a few there, but for the most part they seem to be pretty scarce in that part of the country.

AnnA and I ended up staying in one on I-35 in Austin Saturday night.  We had dinner with an old guitar buddy and my daughter and therefore we didn't try checking in until around 10:30, and by then the place was pretty well filled up, so Ship if you are thinking about making the drive back to Austin after the Pearl event, you might want to make a reservation in advance to make sure you can get the kind of room you want.  

Just a suggestion--if you plan on spending the night in Austin, get a motel within walking distance of 6th street and check out the live music scene.  Austin is quite music-friendly (when my daughter and I and that guitar-player friend walked into Furr's cafeteria Saturday night, there was a guitar player set up with his guitars and a PA system). I mean, how many towns do you see where the all you can eat cafeterias provide live music???  Pretty cool, eh?

Hey Dugy, I finally got around this morning to putting in that bone saddle you gave me. Man does it make a difference to the D10. I lowered the action as much as I dared and it plays much better. I am calling a man this afternoon to have him do a setup with bone nut and saddle to the J28 and am looking forward to hearing it when it is completed. Thanks pal.

So glad it worked out for you, Pappy!  I know what you mean about the improvement in sound quality--it's instantaneously noticable!  The nice side effect of lowering the action as you install the saddle is a great plus, too--if you got the action as low as Shiner's is, it will be sweet!!  I'm anxious to hear it next time we PearlJam!

A funny side note--when the luthier took the original plastic saddle out of the bridge on my D32S, he found a piece of a low E string had been used as a shim.  I suspect somebody shaved the saddle too low and thought it would work, and I suppose it did, as the guitar had pretty good volume.  Still, I wanted it done right, so it's still at the luthier for one of Colosi's bone nuts and a bone saddle replacement.  Once I get that done, I think I'll put a pickup on it--never know when a chance to gig with an amp might come along.  Still, I can't imagine it sounding anywhere as good as that D32SW I brought to this most recent Pearl event--that turned out SO FINE!

Someday I hope to get to hear that J28 of yours, too--maybe at your Thursday night jamming sessions after I retire!

Well I'm on the forum at this early hour because a thunderstorm just woke me. Did I mention that it's 38 degrees outside.

I hope the weather is better for Pearl next weekend. What do they do for inclimate weather Pappy? Our oak tree wouldn't be a good option if it is like this (insert freezing & wet emoticon here).[:D]

I've been worrying about that Chad. We maybe can find a corner in one of the four rooms for our getogethers. I'm not sure what the procedures are on the rooms but think they rent them out to individuals but I've never seen anyone wanting to play be turned away from doing so.

Should I set the record straight on the oak tree that you and Dugy have mentioned?????? No I guess I won't tell that the oak tree you two have mentioned is really a Piss Elm. [:D][:D][:D]

I usually have nothing to say in this thread, having moved from Marfa almost two decades ago.

But, as I was eating Thanksgiving dinner at a truck stop outside of Dallas it didn't seem quite as lonely being so close to a few friends--even if they didn't know I was around.

The best part is I remembered that they sell beer in Terrell.  I stopped at the fuel stop on US80 just before it dumps onto I20 and grabbed a six of Shiner.

So-----I'm enjoying one now.

Here's to Texas and Texan friends.!!!!!

Funny...every year we travel to Dallas for Thanksgiving and we stop at that very fuel stop on the way. Long story short, we filled up with some bad gas and I spent Thanksgiving morning changing my fuel filter and spark plugs. We ended up missing dinner, but I'm thankful my fuel injectors weren't damaged.

Hey, guys & gals, we've talked about having a play list in advance so we could all play together.  IMHO, our obvious warm-up choice ought to be Margaritaville, so there's one.

We can approach the others in a couple of ways--one would be to post here, either as a link to a website page for the song we want to share, or by writing it out, and the other way might be to come to Pearl prepared with multiple copies of a song (or multiple songs) we want to share with others and develop a play list that way.

Anyone have any preferences?  I guess we ought to sort of hold to the spirit of the Pearl event, here, and choose songs that are in the country/cowboy music, bluegrass music, and christian music genres.

And, of course, it should go without saying that we want the songs to be fairly simple for those of us who are challenged (that would certainly be ME [:I] ).  For me that would mean standard tunings, pretty much the major, minor and some 7th chords, etc.

And, in the spirit of the way we've operated in the past, I also like the idea of coming prepared with something we'd like to share, just for the entertainment of our fellow Washies, not necessarily for the play list.  That's always my favorite part of the day, hearing what others are doing for their own pleasure and improvement--those things could obviously be in any genre, don't you think?

What say you all [:D] ????

Not that I know of, Joan, but I'd like to hear/see it.

Got a YouTube or chord/tab site link?

If not, come in January prepared to play it for us and have a few copies of whatever you can find for us--not all of us read music, so perhaps some lyrics with chords?

I've been working on a couple of Paul Thorn christian songs--one is called 800 Pound Jesus and the other is Things Left Undone.

Believe me, if I can play them, they are easy!

Look forward to seeing you and your husband in January!

I didn't know Bon Jovi did that one...awesome! Probably everyone's heard Rufus Wainwright's version from the movie Shrek, but I like Jeff Buckley's (http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=AratTMGrHaQ) cover of it.

Nice video, can't believe we could match Bon Jovi's version, nor Buckley's.  We're just a bunch of guitar crazy people who do enjoy the process of playing together and are fortunate enough to live within driving distance of this very pleasant event.

Like Chad, I'm a bit camera shy, but getting better.  Future plans involve getting technological capability to post on YouTube so I can join in on Skip77's Video Throwdown.

Just out of curiosity, I'm familiar wth Photobucket, but is there a web-based video hosting site (other than YouTube) if someone were to want to share videos with a select group, like our Washburn forum family?

As will Shiner, I will also let others know as the event nears.

Well it's Friday and barring some miracle I probably won't make Pearl tomorrow. I have been fighting a bad chest cold all week and it just isn't getting any better. I have coughed so much and hard that my sides feel like I played football with the Cowboys last night, so sore I can hardly breath and it's torture to cough. So you Texas Washies have a great time and sing one or two for me, I'll see you all in January

Sounds like you got what I had, Pappy.  I don't think the massize infusions of alcohol helped me fight the cold, but it sure made having it more fun [:o)] !  Take your time and get well, we sure will miss you if we get together.  

I'm there if others are--waiting to hear from the Shiner family and Beppi/Strumsalot----what say you all, are we on for Dec. or should we all wait for January?

I'm OK either way.

OK, guys, looks like it's a washout for the Texas Washies--we'll plan on January, OK?

Gives us more time to work on the playlist--Chad, I've favorited that Buckley version of Hallelujah--what a powerful, anguished performance!!  Like I said, I think even these fumblefingers can find their way to the chords, not sure about the vocals, but here's hoping you and Beppi will oblige us on that.

See you in January, folks--let's pray for sunny weather, OK?

UPS says it is on schedule to be delivered tomorrow [:D] .

Even if UPS is a day or two late, that leaves plenty of time for it to get to me before Jan 5th!

I'll bring it--won't have it in playable condition yet, but would like for you and the others to look at it with me and see if you think my ideas are on the right track [^] .

Not sure if AnnA can make it this time--she returns to work on Jan 2, so we'll just wait and see, I guess.

See y'all there!!

Oh, perhaps we might have to join in on some of the jam action already happenin' [:0] ??

Nope, AnnA has 2 years to go till she meets the minimum requirements for retirement [:(] .

But, yeah, I do think I'll enjoy the life you mentioned for a while--and you're right--it is a great set-up [:D].  Hopefully she will get to go to Pearl this time, too--the last time we spent the night in an Austin motel so we could spend the next day with my daughter, who was having one HUMDINGER of a party the night we spent in Austin.  We threatened to crash the party--you should have heard her stammer--uh, uh--but---um--well--.  It was fun [:p] scaring her that way!

Weather man is still calling for partly cloudy with a high around 70. Only problem is the wind might be a little stiff at 10/20 mph. But it sure will beat being down in the teens. If things keep on like they are at this point I will be there, won't have bells on but will be there with Kimmie in tow. I sure am looking forward to seeing everyone again. Haven't seen Joan from Granbury,Tx. on here lately, sure hope she and her husband doesn't forget to be there day after tomorrow.

barring last minute travel delays w/BG [she flies out tomorrow] or some other health issues [shiner has been sick] we plan to be there.  

Joan, when you drive up to the festival, you will actually see an old school house in which the majority of the activities are held.  find a place to park.  as you stand facing the structure, head to the right.  on the back right corner of the building is our 'p-elm'... and i'll do what we did when Dugly first came.  i'm right around 6', black boots, black jeans, and i'll either wear a black washburn shirt or cap, i'll make up my mind in the morning.  just look at the pictures posted on prior pages of this thread, you'll find us.  [:D]

Hey, a singer sounds good!......Lord knows, I can't carry a tune in a bucket [:0] !

Any chance that other young couple who were at Pearl with you last time might come back?  They looked like they were just starting on the journey; if so, Pearl might well be a motivating event for them!  I know the Winfield Bluegrass Festival was for me!

well, everyone made it out just fine... we met joan and her husband, who plays upright bass!  another group got our tree before everyone got there/got guitars and gear out, so we had a different spot this time.  

joan has obviously been playing for quite some time, and is a very talented player/singer.  she's a finger-pickin lady, i tellya!  [joan, it was very nice to meet you and your husband!)]

the weather turned out to be about 70, but the wind made it chilly in the shade.  

we had some of the regulars sit and play/sing with us again, and a real treat, something i'd never seen before and didn't know existed.  a four string guitar.  gibson, the entire body solid koa.  that was nifty!  and the senior gent who was playing it was really gifted!

and... [:I]  i only shook one time today; that was when everyone was staring at me b/c Pappy asked me to play Wildwood Flower for him.  tanked it, but got through it.  still hard to play when everyone is staring at me!  but it's getting easier every time.

we had a blast, and i can't wait for Dugly and AnnA to get to a computer; AnnA was shutterbugging away and i just know she got some awesome pictures!  

ps:  Pappy, please let us know that your bee sting incident didn't get any worse... i worried about you the whole way home! [a bee crawled into Pappy's diet coke can and got him on the lip  [V]]

Kim, that little four string guitar is called a tenor guitar and one minor detail is that it is a Martin instead of a Gibson, it is a solid Koa and according to him it is the only solid Koa guitar Martin ever made, don't know if that is true or not.
I left around six and the lip was really beginning to swell, it now 8 and I just finished trying to eat a bite of supper, didn't make a very good hand at it though. It will be ok in a day or so. After everyone left a lady joined us playing a 12 string and George, who came with Dugly I think, got wound up and did several songs.That man can sing and play.
I was impressed with the way Childbride played today, she has made progress in leaps and bounds on her nervousness,you da girl Kim.
I got to see a first today, Joan's husband played a stand up bass,holding it just like we hold a guitar, sitting in a chair with that monster across one knee and playing away,,,,beat anything I have ever seen.
It was sure good to see everyone again. Chad and Beppi, Dugly and Anna, Shiner and Childbride, and the new ones Joan and her husband and Dugly's friend,George. It was great seeing new faces and hearing their music.
P.S. Shiner I am in love with that new darling you had with you today,man what a beauty she is, love that satin finish. I would love to be the Guardian over that Angel.

I've got a younger brother that lives around Austin.....somewhere.  I've been threatening to go see him.....LOL. Pearl sounds interesting....do you have some directions for someone who'd be driving in from the East?
Title: Texas Washies
Post by: PAPPY on January 06, 2008, 08:31:26 AM
Pearl is located just off Highway 84 and a little south of Evant,Tx. Evant is between Lampasas and Hamilton,Tx. So depending on whereabouts from the East you would be coming from on whether you would use 84. It would either be 84 or 183 as those are the only two highways going through Evant. Pearl sits on the old 183 (I think they call it spur 183 now) highway about 10 miles southeast of Evant. If you get a chance drop by anytime on the first Saturday of each month and I bet you will find something that you will enjoy.

We had a great time at Pearl this weekend.  It was great to add a new couple to the family of Texas Washies, Joan and Lee really added new talent to the mix.  Joan and Becki both had absolutely beautiful voices, they really do need to share that onstage (hint, hint [;)]).

We all talked about putting a play list together, one where we could each contribute a couple of our favorite songs so that we would have the chance to work on them before the next Pearl jam session--more to come on that soon, hopefully.

Soon as I figure out how to post photos again (did it before, but I've slept since then [:D]), I'll post a few from this month's get-together--we got some good ones!  Tune in tomorrow!

Hi guys! Thank you so much for the great time at Pearl - Lee and I loved it!!! There's so much to learn and such a wealth of talent!! (I mean besides all us Washburn people!!) We'll definitely be back but the best part was you guys and getting to know you :) Thank you :)
Pappy, sorry about your lip - Lee and I felt bad for you.  

I'd really like to help get us some songs together that are on paper and that we all know. How about if each of us came with a couple of songs all printed out with the chords for each of us and we could each build a personal songbook? Dugly could do all the research since he has nothing else to do now but play. (we're all jealous!!)

We really appreciate you all :)

Hey guys - go to this page for a song that's all written out already that also has an accompanying track to listen to. The chords are really basic to learn. I'm going to work on the melody line. Anyone want to join me in that?? Some of us can do the chords. We could have it ready by next time. It's called Big Sandy River . Make sure you capo up to 2nd fret and try to play along with the track after you print off the music to have chords to follow with. Let me know what you think.

Can Do, CB!!  This was only about half of them--do you want just these or all of them?

AnnA just beamed when she read your post and then said she thinks the digital camera is just about one of the best inventions of all time.  She's becoming more artistic with the camera all the time--many people don't realize it, but AnnA is an artist, too--perhaps next time we meet at Pearl I'll bring some examples of her artwork!

Now, onward to learn Joan's song--with any luck, I might have it down by the next time we meet at Pearl.

i heard her comment that when we moved [from under the shed to the front], that the trees framed us perfectly.  she made me Happy.  made me remember Shiner popping around taking pictures of gram and i at the ranch one time in the past.  she's not only Gifted, she's just a neat lady.  i like her more and more every time i get to talk to her.  [:)]

Make sure you capo up to 2nd fret and try to play along with the track after you print off the music to have chords to follow with. Let me know what you think.

Which version, Joan--version 1 or 2?

I am not much for melody lines, but I'll pitch in on rhythm/chords!

OK, but my Earthlink account limits me to 3 attachments per email.  Let Shiner know to expect about 20 emails.

It's our pleasure to share these.  AnnA doesn't know I'm typing these, but today in Austin we popped into a Guitar Center store to look for humidifiers for the guits, and we went back into their humidity controlled room where the acoustic guitars were displayed.  AnnA listened to me play a few of them, including a Breedlove that had a sound to rival those old time Gibsons, and on the way out she asked me how difficult it is to play guitar.  Hopefully my answer didn't discourage her [:0] .

Sure is, but, no, I'm not any sort of official--the people who run the Pearl event decided that many of the regulars would like to have some sort of ID and so they started selling these name tags for $7.

I just happened to have $7 a few months ago when I was there [:I] .

Congrats on #100--post on, Merlin [^] !

Oh Anna! Thank you so much for putting the fun time we all had into pictures!!! It just is the icing on the cake!! I can't wait to see you all again! CB, you might look at that song at this address: I'm so impressed by your stick to it attitude!!! It will be fun to watch you as you get better every month :)
Guys, check out this song we all could learn - it's only got 3 chords and they repeat a lot:
look for the slow guitar version 1 and there's an MP3 to practice with once you get the chords down:

Thanks for sharing those jam pictures with us... That looks so cool. I Would really like to be there an play with all of you. Too bad I live way too far. And my god, the temperature seems comfortable for outdoor playing at your place at this time of the year. Here, I would'nt dare getting my guitar outside of the warm house (snow everywhere).

Looks good Joan, and probably simple enough that even I might be able to learn it.  I really like the way it has the musical notation at the top and the tabs at the bottom.  That's way cool!

Thanks--I'll be working on it.

As for other song suggestions, what do y'all think--should we post suggestions on this thread or start a Texas Washies Playbook thread?  Just curious what the rest think!

With any luck, I'll be camping back behind the community center and perhaps taking a Saturday morning ride with the bike riders from Waco.  That still leaves all afternoon for pickin' & [:D] !!!

Well, we've been back, most of us.  Everyone brought something new--new songs, new skills, new guits.

Here are a few photos, but check back now and then.  I'll be building this for a while, computer problem that allows me to only work in one window at a time.  I have to submit the post, log out of Washburn's website, go to Photobucket, copy the IMG code, close out of photobucket, get back on Washburn and edit my post, all for one photo and there are many!

First the crew:  

Our esteemed Shiner brought one of the new kids, one named D'Aquisto (I think Centura was the middle name).  That is one incredible guitar, you should see the tailpiece, the bridge and saddle, and the pickguard--works of art in themselves, not to mention the guitar and the tone, OMG, the tone!  He's the proud one, check him and it out:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_0761.jpg)

Next is CB, you should hear the progress she makes--every time we get together, she's kicking more serious arse!  She's doing some mighty fine lead lines now and should be gigging soon......

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_0757.jpg)
 
It's always a treat to get to play with Pappy--he brings a big book of originals and seems to enjoy singing them as much as he does composing them.......

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_0760.jpg)

Dugly still is, and it doesn't make it any better when he sings with his eyes closed..................

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_0764.jpg)


This is Roger from Copperas Cove.  He sure could play that Taylor!!

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_0753.jpg)

We've played with Ray twice now.  I can tell you he gets an incredible tone out of that Blueridge.  He says he's first a drummer and has been playing for only a couple of years--he's very fast and very good!

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_0755.jpg)

OK, you've met everyone, now a couple of group photos.  This first one is titled Confusion reigns supreme.  This is hilarious, take a look at the expression on each of the faces, notice that everyone is playing a different chord.  Now you know why I named it that:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_0754.jpg)

I finally caught AnnA aiming the camera in time to get that goofy look off my face and smile for a change......

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_0759.jpg)

Check back whenever you see the Texas Washies thread at the top of the board, folks--it probably means I've added photos.  I have a lot more, this time showing each of the rooms at the community center and some other common indoor jam spots--and there are more outside that I haven't been able to take time to photo yet.

Aw come on Dugly, don't you know precision when you see it. The song was in the key of D which I was in the process of making.

I won't be able to make it, Pappy.  I just returned from 6 weeks in Kansas and I need to tend to some business here at home....

As for September, I'll be going to the Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival in Winfield, KS the 2nd weekend of September.  IMHO it's one of the nation's premier bluegrass events, I've been going on and off since the mid 1970's and it is an incredible event.

If anyone wants to wander that way with me in September, please contact me.  I think I'll camp out in the Winfield town park, which is right next to the festival site.  There are plenty of good bluegrass jams going on all around the campgrounds in the evenings...good times!

Now, October, that might just be a different matter altogether.  I'd like to make the Pearl event in October--I'm all ready to make it a camping and biking trip, too!

Say Pappy, Shiner, CB, Chad, Beppi, Joan and Lee, and any other forum members who make Pearl on a regular basis--I have a real DEAL for you.  I pursued permission from Browndog/Deltacaster to use the Washburn logo on a Texas Washies sign to mark our customary little spot at Pearl.  Both not only gave me permission, but Browndog also offered free Washburn T-shirts to all the Washburn forum members who attend the Pearl event.  All I need is your T-shirt size and I'll get the info to Browndog.

currently working on another flatpicking song... double eagle... going to see if i can get it up to speed [literally]

AnnA has been working her magic with the paintbrushes again, thought you might like to see what she's been up to:

Front View:

Another closer view of the front:
(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1066.jpg)
And a closeup of the signs:
(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1069.jpg)
These two gentlemen are at almost every Pearl Bluegrass jam:
(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1057-1.jpg)
A closer view of Harold and his tenor guitar on the right, with Ray on the left:
(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1059-1.jpg)
Now, this is cool--through the window you can see performers onstage:
(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1065.jpg)
Next, we go to the back, here are some of our Texas Washies (that's Shiner and CB with Dawn, a new friend we met at Pearl):
(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1056.jpg)
Another view of the onstage performers:
(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1061.jpg)
And onward to another of our Texas Washies couples, Strumsalot and Beppi, along with Pappy and his cousin Joe and a lady who sings It Wasn't God Who Made Honky-tonk Angels for us every time:
(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1062.jpg)
And yet another view of the onstage performers:
(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1063.jpg)

We thought this was a unique way of commemorating the Pearl experience, AnnA may very well donate this birdhouse to the Pearl Bluegrass event organizers!

well, we're back from pearl.  it was a blast, as usual; no one had staked out our piss elm, so it was back to our favorite spot.  [:)]

the weather was awesome, and it was so great so see Pappy, Dugly, and AnnA again!  

and i have a progress report... i actually performed w/o getting overly nervous [and Rocket, even played part of the time w/o looking at my fretboard, just others' to watch for chord changes to songs i didn't know]  [:D]

we also had the pleasure of meeting and jamming with new friends-- wes, jp, and lucas... lucas and jp are 'wonder kids'... they really make me wish i had started in hs on guitar.  [V]

all in all, a great day.  now we just have to wait for AnnA/Dugly to post pics!  

Pappy, Dug/AnnA, thanks for a wonderful saturday, and looking forward to our next meeting!

After you guys left, will's, aka wes, wife/girlfriend stopped by and played songs on the fiddle for us and Mr. Bill got out his lap guitar and played a couple with us. Then another fella stopped by that plays any stringed instrument and the better players kinda took over. Dugly,Anna and myself went in to the stage area and listened to the couple from Canada perform, man were they great, by far the best performers of the day.

It was great seeing you two again and Kim, I was so proud of you. You've come a long way lady. We keep saying we're going to get together at my brother's house and we're gonna have to make that happen, somehow, soon. Sorry you two had to leave so early but I also had to leave not long after you did. Thanks for a great day all four of you.

AnnA got some great photos--of course, it helps when you gave good subject material [:D][:D][:D].

The jammin' doesn't stop when the stage shows shut down, we jammed in one of those 4 jam-rooms until after 10PM [:p] .....there was a jam session going on outside that lasted till about 12 midnight....[^]  

I'll post them tomorrow, right now I'm at AnnA's house, dial-up is a bit slow to upload to Photobucket.

OK, folks, here come the photos.  We made some great new friends this time and AnnA took over 140 photos at Pearl, about 100 of which were of our changing group under the old piss-elm.

AnnA and I arrived about 10:30 PM on Friday night--the location for this event is an old community school that has been converted into a community center.  They have RV hookups with electricity and water, but I prefer tent camping.  We watched the light show on the way up, got rained on almost all of the last 30 miles, and felt lucky as we got closer to Pearl to see that the roads were dry.  I was feeling pretty smug about having made a good call (no motel), until we realized about the time we started pitching the tent that the storm was coming TOWARD us, not away from us as I had thought.  Here's a photo of the tent, care to hazard a guess what the ropes are for?

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1184.jpg)

Here's one of the 4 Texas Washies in attendance, we were missing Strumsalot, Beppi, JSlaughter and her husband, Lee, but we attempted to represent Washburn's products as well as we could.  I'll introduce the friends later:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1211.jpg)

Of course, the nature of the group keeps changing throughout the day as people leave to go watch stage performances or eat or take care of other business, here are some of the group photos AnnA took.  I'll introduce the friends later--

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1270.jpg)

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1273.jpg)

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1274.jpg)

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1275.jpg)

But first, folks, this is a thread about our Texas Washies, so let's see a few of them:

Pappy is our most original artist, playing with him is always a treat b/c he plays his originals--sometimes I get lost in the words and forget to keep up with the chord changes, but he never seems to notice, or if he does he's just gracious enough to not embarrass me by mentioning it!  

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1228.jpg)

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1286.jpg)

ChildBride is next--she's getting better and better each time, this time achieving a milestone she's already mentioned, overcoming the inevitable insecurity of playing in front of others and enjoying the victory of having played well:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1248.jpg)

She plays all the way up the neck to the point where she needs that cutaway design (don't you just hate her already???? [:D]):

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1249.jpg)

OK, Shiner's next--he's a quiet sort of fellow, but when he speaks, you want to hear what he has to say (especially when he's describing his melodic contributions to the group efforts--ask him what I mean, he'll know [:0] ):

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1227.jpg)

Of course, Shiner would be the first to mention that he's just part of a dynamic duo, I suspect this is during our traditional rendition of Margaritaville, our theme song:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1212.jpg)

Uh, oh, here comes trouble [}:)] :

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1252.jpg)

CB and Shiner asked me to play the two pieces I played onstage at Winfield, and after I did so they informed me that they had determined why I didn't place in the top 5--apparently I just close my eyes, play, and if something happens that I like I just smile; however, they said it looks too easy, so they suggested I work on my guitar face to make it look a bit harder.  Here's an example of what we came up with:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1202.jpg)

OK, folks, that's enough about us, what we really wanted to do was introduce our new friends.

First of the Wonder Kids is Lucas White.  He's a regular at Pearl, only 13 or 14 years old, and has been playing Pearl for a while--we've posted photos of him onstage earlier in this thread.  He got his start when they were raffling off a guitar and he won, now he can play guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo--I've never seen him play a bass fiddle, but if he could he could be a one-man band!  Here's a photo, then a YouTube link so you can hear what this youngster can do!

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1237.jpg)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMIVJVwtEfE

Here's the next of our Wonder Kids.  We were just playing and I looked around to see this young gentleman standing back with a mando under his arm.  I greeted him and asked him if he'd like to join us and he said yes.  In the next hour or so, I was humbled and honored to meet him, he's a real treat!  Meet John Peyton (I just called him JP, with his permission):

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1230.jpg)

Here I am having a hard time keeping up with him:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1234.jpg)

Soon enough we found out how talented he is--he played a mean guitar, too!:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1244.jpg)

And that's not all, see for yourself:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1282.jpg)

I tell you, folks, bluegrass might seem like a dying music form, but judging from the calibre of young talent at Winfield and Pearl, I'm not the least bit worried.  We call these kids Wonder Kids with good reason!!!

Will is another of our new friends.  He just started playing guitar 6 months ago, so it's almost time for that first epiphany---I'm sure you all know what I mean, that time when things sort of gel and it becomes easier.  He's a delightful young man and is part of an incredibly talented musical family (more on that to come):

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1216.jpg)

Will's wife, Holly, is a classically trained pianist.  According to Will, she grew tired of playing music for which she had to rely on a score and took up the fiddle.  She was very good, joined in with us for at least an hour, and later that night at a jam session inside she joined another group and sang for us, her voice is quite pleasant!!  Here's a photo of Will and Holly together:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1269.jpg)

Here's our next new friend, Charlie Joplin--he just happens to be Holly's father, so there's  more about that musical family connection Will enjoys (speaking of a musical family, Hmmmmm.....Joplin as a last name, doesn't that ring a bell?  Sure enough---3rd cousins!!! [^] ).  I've seen him at Pearl before onstage, just never had the opportunity to play with him.  He's just quite the image of the old west cowboy, isn't he?:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1289.jpg)

Here's a photo of how we met Charlie and a testament to the spirit of the event.  Charlie was just listening to us and he liked what he heard JP doing, so he offered to give JP a tip.  A thoroughly enjoyable lesson followed, we all just sat back and enjoyed as the two of them shredded on the guitars!

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1261.jpg)

Next is Mr. Bill, a friend of Pappy's (please, no SNL jokes [}:)] ).  He doesn't call me Dugly, probably doesn't even know others do, my name is City Boy to him.  He was joining us at a previous Pearl event and I didn't recognize the song he was playing (I think it was Your Cheating Heart), and it must have been unbelievable to him, so he said You must be a city boy!.  I have been, at least to him, ever since, I have no intentions of ever correcting him:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1291.jpg)

Here's a photo of Pappy (that's his right arm on the left, rest assured he was playing and not just resting) and the rest of us, jammin!:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1293.jpg)

Well, guys and gals, it looks like Photobucket has crashed.  I can get to my photos, just can't upload more--will have to finish some other time. There's yet another new friend to introduce and more photos to share [:D] .

I was disappointed that I couldn't find a you tube of Lucas playing the fiddle, in my opinion he is better on the fiddle than the guitar. He is also good on a mandolin, I am not sure about a bass but I bet he can play it. I will ask him at the next Pearl jam.

Thanks Yer Dugly City Boy Ness lol. Looking forward to More! It is great to see multiple generations sharing a love for music. Bluegrass has always been a part of me, stemming first from country and I have a Celtic heart, being Irish ( still love my rock n roll too). To all you Texans, keep the music alive and well at Pearl! Dugly, in all the years you have been playing classical guitar, did you ever imagine you'd be playing bluegrass with such a great bunch? [:D]

Now that you mention it, no!  However, I am primarily an instrumentalist, so I'm looking forward to having the chance to take my Hippner classical guitar to Pearl to play with them.  I'm not much of a singer (I paraphrase Leo Kottke here when I say I have a voice that resembles ...goose farts on a muggy day [:0]--now there's  some auditory imagery for ya!).  I usually don't need to sing, but every now and then we'll get stuck as we go around the circle sharing songs, and somebody will say Make Dugly sing one, at which point you should see the rest of them scramble through their song books [;)] !

Well, I may have exagerated just a bit above, but singing in a group really is a new experience for me and I'm not very confident about that [:I] . It's getting better, though!

TX must be a hotbed of bluegrass, I've recently found out about another monthly bluegrass event less than an hour from my home (Pearl is a 5 hour one-way drive), and a couple of others within two hours.  None of these seems to match the Pearl event, though....and never will, unless the rest of the Texas Washies want to join me at those events, too [:D] .

More photos to follow when I get home again...

Well, Photobucket and I have sort of negotiated a peaceful co-existance, so I'll post the last of the photos from this past Pearl event:

First, let me introduce the head honcho for the Pearl event, Ronald Medart.  AnnA donated the Pearl-Jam birdhouse to the organization, here is a photo of Ron accepting it:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1194.jpg)

Next is another of our new friends, James Reed.  He not only plays guitar, but also mandolin and fiddle and I later heard him playing a mean 5 string banjo, again a sort of all-round musician!  Here he is demonstrating Freight Train for J.P. (btw--notice that he's playing my Breedlove [:D] ):

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1266.jpg)

And, once again, J.P. rises to the occasion!  He caught on to the lesson very quickly! (that is J.P.'s father, John, in the red-orange shirt):

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1268.jpg)

This was the first time we've been able to see Tammy and Jay Roy, they were a real treat!  Take a look at that bass guitar Tammy is playing, it's huge!:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1301.jpg)

OK, that's the last of the friends (well, sort of, you'll have to wait for one more [;)] ).  This next photo is one AnnA and I always enjoy, as the stage is decorated each month with different quilts.  Since this is October, it's not surprising that the center quilt would be a Hallowe'en quilt--look carefully, you'll see Pumpcat, Batcat, Skelecat, Piratecat, Ghostcat, Witchcat, Muymmycat, Dracucat, and Devilcat!  Even the corner blocks have quilted on spiderwebs--this is a real work of original art!

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1298.jpg)

And, finally, I promised yet another friend, here it is--this is an incredibly friendly and expressive dog belonging to Holly and Will.  AnnA and I watched from inside our tent as Holly attempted numerous times to load this dog into the car so she could drive home, she even tried backing it up and getting up a decent run toward the car (much as you might need to do to get a reluctant horse to cross a stream), no luck.  Finally, the dog just started talking to Holly, sort of like a wolf might howl, it was so expressive--No, I don't want to go!.  Charlie finally managed to pick the dog up and load it into the car, otherwise Holly might still be trying to convince that dog it was time to go home!

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/100_1326.jpg)

Well, that's all for this trip, we hope you enjoyed the photos.  AnnA is becoming quite the photographer, she's getting quite good at catching things ...at the moment, so to speak, and she really seems to capture the spirit of the event.  Funny, we don't seem to have a photo of AnnA.......hmmmmmm.......need to work on that [:D] !

Till next time, folks!

Great pics dugly...I seen Fiddles and mandolins just wondering, could you bring some of your new friends here and show them the Bluegrass forum.  Greg,Scott and myself seem to be to only members who regularly post there It would be so nice to get a few more posters.

I'm about 7 hours ahead of you, magoo--I have emailed most of them a link to the thread and invited them to view their photos, as well as read about our fellowship here.  I'd hope they will enjoy what they see and perhaps become members.  Thanks for mentioning the Bluegrass section of the forum!

I would suppose they will be reading this post, so here's a link to our mando/fiddle Bluegrass instrument forum if they are interested:

http://www.washburn.com/forum/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=10

I must admit, I've not really investigated the bluegrass board, since I don't play a mando or a fiddle--50 lashes with a limp A string for me [:0] !  You may have gained yet another poster, as AnnA and I have found out that there is a different bluegrass festival within driving distance every weekend!  Since bluegrass is one of my two favorite genres, you can be sure we'll be investigating those other events!

You'd be more than welcome, Denim!  You wouldn't even need to bring any of that incredible instrumental stable you have--we have plenty guitars to loan out, as you can see by the equipment list below my signature.

We're in the Houston, TX area.....give us a heads up next time you're headed this way, we'll show you some good, ol' Texas hospitality!

Thanks Dugly, as you know I live in a small piece of this old world and we don't get a lot of bluegrass music here fr out of province, so It would be great to here from and see pics from people around the world. I enjoy hearing stuff that others play. I love Celtic music and Newfoundland has Its own brand of this...Its only in the last ten yrs or so that the Band fr NL called Great Big Sea have been showing the rest of the world what we here have to offer..there are also some great Bluegrass bands here,  they don't get any recognition because there just isn't a market for bluegrass here and in much of Canada ..as far as I know.
so hearing and reading about bluegrass and Celtic and the instruments use to play this music would be a treat.

Cheers Magoo.

Hi Dugly,

thanks for your nice offer. But I think it will take a longer time to come to Texas, cause my son will be born in about two weeks. But someday I will come to the States again.

I knew he was self taught as I have talked with him at length several times in the past. I think at one point he was thinking about lessons but he's made such rapid progress he probably isn't even thinking that way anymore. He can get er done

Don't ya' hate kids?[:(]



Glad to hear you were able to make contact with the family.  I have JP's father's email address, sent him a link to this thread so he could see the photos I posted, even made a heartfelt request that he consider continuing to bring JP to the Pearl event in the future.  I didn't receive a bounce back notice, so I assume the email got through, but neither did I get a response from him....I sure hope he got the email.  

Looking forward to seeing JP at Pearl again!

WELCOME to the Washburn forum, JP [;)] !!!  You can't imagine what a nice surprise it is to see you've joined and started posting--I tell ya, these folks really should get to meet you [^] !  Please stick around....we're a pretty friendly bunch around here and every now and then some of us actully play a guitar, too [:0] !

This was undoubtedly the best Pearl weekend I've been to yet.  There were more people there than I've ever seen before, and since I've started camping rather than driving back to Houston soon as the stage acts are finished, I've discovered that the jamming in the rooms inside and outside under the tin roof goes on until midnight or so, sometimes even after.  This time, one of the three piece bluegrass stage acts jammed with us 'till midnight, as did Jay and Tammy Roy....now, that was a pleasure, to get to play with those folks!

I'm told people in the RV's start arriving for the monthly Pearl event on Wednesday, the lot is pretty full by the sundown Thursday, and here all along I thought I had to wait till Friday.....I guess that's what I get for doing my own thinking [:I] !  I also found out that they leave the entrance to the school, which provides access to the restrooms (with showers!!! [:D] ) open until noon on Sunday...I mean, is that good ol' Texas hospitality or what [?]

I think I'll have to miss Pearl during December....a big project in Kansas awaits, but if I can make good progress, I might be able to make it back.....I'm hoping!!

No photos this time, I was too busy jamming and AnnA couldn't come due to work constraints....let's hope for next time.

I can make sure he gets to play a nice WD32SW next time we meet at Pearl, maybe even a vintage D61SW!

He has played my Breedlove, I was jealous of the tones he got out of it!  Maybe in the future I can get J.P. to sit down at Pearl and play a bit for us (or, with us [:D] ?) and get AnnA to video it so we can post it at YouTube.  I did see his dad there this time, didn't get to talk to him....but I did get J.P.'s email address, so I'll drop him a line and ask.

Glad to hear you're up for it, J.P. [^] !  We'll see if we can't make it happen, but probably not next month.....I'll still be in Kansas, I predict, and even if I'm not, AnnA has the camera with audio capability and that's what we need.  I have a YouTube account and can post the video, just need to get a camera with a mic and go for it.

Thanks for the info on James, I've gone back and edited the comment by his photo to include his name.  I always hate it when I don't get someone's name or can't remember it!

He borrowed my new Epiphone slot-headed 12-fretter slope shouldered guit last month, must have enjoyed it, b/c it was 3 hours before he came looking for me to return it.  I knew it was in good hands, like you say he's one of those who's there every month and is good on everything he picks up!

Looking forward to catching you on video and getting you some exposure on YouTube [:D] !  Let's keep our fingers crossed for January.....

hey fellers.

a good friend of mine from here in the windy (and frigid) city recently moved to Austin. She's a younger gal who was part of the school of folk music crowd I run with up here. She's done a bit of playing, and even the odd open mic here n there. Is there a site or something I could forward to her to get her in the loop on the Pearl gig? sounds like it'd be right up her alley. We do similar open jams up here.

Cheers!

Pappy, we aren't going to make it this weekend.

ever since the 'studio room' makeover, the house has been in a state of flux, moving bedding, furniture, stuff we need to get rid of... from room to room.

it's now come to a head, b/c we're going to have them both during the holidays [shiner band recordings to come [:D]] but we have to finish the house.  

hope y'all have a blast, and can't wait to see you in the new year!

Just got back from Pearl, it started off a little slack on spectators but before it got in full swing the place was packed as usual. Took my friend with me this time and Dougly came rolling in, just a few minutes after I arrived, on his way back home from Kansas. I never even got my guitar out of the truck today but spent the whole afternoon just listening to different folks playing. It was rather nice for a change to just sit back and listen and visit with old and new friends while the music played on and on.

p.s.
Shiner they had a raffle on a mandolin and a banjo today and our friend Jon Peyton who is starting to learn to play a banjo won the banjo. I thought that was real neat. Also his mother and I visited quiet a bit today then later on I snuck up to where she was playing a guitar with some of their close friends and heard her play and sing. She has a good voice and I had visions of a band with Kim and her doing the vocals and you playing guitar. One question....are all the good looking women in Texas from Waco??

She must not have attended, Kimo, or at least if she did she didn't find me......but please encourage her to come to Pearl for at least one of our weekends.  Even if the Texas Washies don't congregate, there's plenty of others with whom she could play.

I just returned home following two days in Austin after the Pearl event, my daughter lives there.  If your friend would like to contact me, please contact me through the contact link in my profile and I'll get the address to you.  I'm getting quite a few acquaintances in the Austin area who are musicians, would always like to add one more!

Looking forward to hearing from you and your friend--and I'm also hoping to get some time in front of the camera so I can get rid of those ol' Dugly Blues (although, I must admit, I really do find The Blue Duglies an interesting concept.......[;)]  .

Hey Dugly,

I expected nothing less than unlimited hospitality. I passed the link on, but it was short notice for her. She knows NO ONE except a few co-workers, and wasn't thrilled at the prospect of heading out there alone. But she viewed the website and thought it looked like fun. She's a huge Chris Thile fan, just a huge music fan really, but believes bluegrass being played by smiling people is about is good as it gets. I'll share your offer with her, and see if she'd like to make the connection. She may be lurking here as well, as I thought she may wanna join in the discussion first hand, and sent her a link.

Thanks again!

I'll make a search to know more about Shiner Bock.. people here will probably ask me what is this ? I have to know what to answer, expect that an friendly guy send it to me right from TEXAS !!!

Rocket... maybe I've never seen this beer here, but this w-e I've seen a LOT of Washburn at Rivière-du-Loup local guitar store... seriously oven 30... and not all D10 series (maybe 2 or 3)... I've try AUGUSTA.. and an limited one you won't see in USA... No trace of the Bluegrass guitar

I would agree with that ratio Yan. Although, everything has it's place. The heavy flavor of Unibrou's beers are great on a cold dark northern evening, but nothing beats an ice cold shiner (or 4) on a blazing august afternoon in Austin.

Well doggone it why didn't one of you Texas Washies remind me that Pearl was yesterday!! I moped around all day yesterday wishing someone would call to play guitars awhile but nobody did. Usually there are two or three that call on weekends but not this weekend. I did play as usual on Thursday night and then myself and three more friends got together Friday night for a short jam. I had full intentions of making Pearl yesterday but it just slipped my mind. Would'a been a might windy on the outside though. Maybe next month we can all get together...it's been too long.

Is this officially the largest thread on the forum?

Yan, first of all, I saw the comment about being married a month and the shaving of the beard, so I knew they were referring to you.

Second, I like that hat, I sort of collect hats and will have to track one of those down.

Third,I believe Rocket has a number of nut crackers laying around the house, but you will too in due time.

Bottom line, congrats on the marriage and I hope it doesn't interfere with your guitar buying.

Hopefully March...it was awful windy over here in Houston yesterday (and today), hope March will be more like camping weather.  I like driving to Pearl on Thursday night.  They open the school on Friday for showers and restroom use and there's always pickin' & grinnin' outside the schoolhouse late into the night on Friday.

I'm hoping to bring a video camera to Pearl so I can catch some footage of JP and Lucas to post on YouTube....JP's father gave permission, I haven't talked to anyone about Lucas yet.  Lucas hasn't been there the past 2 times I was there....other committments, he said.  I'll drop JP an email before March's Pearl Jam and see if he's coming.....

I'm with you, Rocket, the kids are the most fun to teach!  This was a fishing tournament for kids from 4 to 14, the city just stocked the park pond with 2,000 rainbow trout and gave out trophies for most fish and biggest fish in all three age groups.

You'd be surprised, however, at how few people actually know how to fish.....much like playing the guitar, there's a certain feel that we all develop, or hope to someday [:0] .  Just as in playing guitar, there are all levels of skill, but probably the most rewarding experience is seeing those young kids pull one out for the first time and wonder what it is and what to do with it [:D] .  It's how we all started [;)] .

Actually, those catfish are prime eating size....any larger and they get muddy tasting.

The trout are small, hatchery fish.  It'll take all 6 or 7 of them to make a meal for me and AnnA.

As they get larger, the flesh also gets mushier.

A good 2# to 3# catfish, cooked correctly, is a very good fish, with firm flesh and great taste (YUMMY, BEER batter!! [:p] ). The problem is too many fishermen throw those back, hoping to catch the bigger ones.  Fun, yeah, but not so good eating!  I toss the big ones back and keep the little ones [:D] .

Hate to tell you this, Shiner, but the hatchery raised catfish (those in the photos I posted were raised in a TPWD hatchery and stocked in the pond at the size you see in the photos 2 months ago) are reared in a stock tank, Texas-speak for a farm pond like structure.  There's plenty of scat to eat off the bottom there, too......[xx(] .

I merely want to point out the facts. Dug, will eat Texas Tuna. Dug, will eat cat food between two slices of plain white bread.  I have wittnessed this in person.

In addition, this is the twenty-first-century and beer batter is soooo, yesterday.  Panko bread-crumb mix is the only way to go.  Panko batter will make a very crunchy crust.

On the other hand, with this economy it may boil down to bottom fishing and cat food. I think things may get grim here (USA) maybe even grimmer than Washington admits.

Last Friday I bought a house and three acres 10 miles from Hilo on Puna Island. I like the climate, I'm on the beach (fish) and look forward to a garden, chickens, and a ultra-high-speed internet connection.

True story, it happened on the beach south of Corpus Christi. We were fishing the surf and the reds were running and the bigeye tuna were feeding on the incoming swells.  I asked Hans to bring me something to eat and I inhaled it.  I recognized the odor as something with which I was familiar, but not having a cat at the time I didn't make the connection.

It tasted a lot like Chicken of the Sea tuna.......[:D]

Yeah, Hans, I'll second that--great to hear from you again!  I'll have to call so I can hear about the new place!

maybe i'm missing something. [?] correct me if i'm wrong.

Well it looks like I'm gonna have to miss another Pearl event this coming weekend. Also gonna have to miss my class reunion,the first one we've ever had, because it happens to be Carrie and I's wedding anniversary. Some of you remember my cousin, Joe, that played with us one time at Pearl. I think maybe he is coming down this weekend also, he lost his oldest son,26, in a car wreck two weeks ago today and I sure need to get him down here so he can get away for awhile. Anniversary plans may have to be put on hold if he does make it down but Carrie has no problem with that, in fact she suggested that I should try to get him down here. Anywho, if any of you make it this month be sure to post the outcome and tell em all I said Howdy.

I think AnnA and I will make it this month, if so it'll be the last chance I'll have to make Pearl for 4 months....I'm going back to Kansas in early April and won't be back till mid July.  Lotsa work to do on the old High Plains Hacienda [:D] and a fly-fishing trip to the front range of the Colorado Rockies beckons [;)] .

Here's hoping some others will make it, tell Joe he'll be in my prayers.  No parent should ever have to bury a child [:(] , it's just not the natural progression of life.

Well ain't wonderful women beautiful?? The wife agreed that since my cousin didn't make it down that I should go to Pearl for awhile Sat. Met up with Dugly and Anna, boy has that girl taken hold of her life, she has trimmed down and looks fabulous. We did some visiting but never got around to doing any guitar playing together. I had a great time and the hours slipped away quickly and before I knew it it was time for me to get on home and take the wife out to supper for our anniversary. Thanks Dugly and Anna for a great time. Sorry you didn't get to make it Chad and Beppie.

Sorry to hear that, James was a very talented gent and could play nearly any stringed instrument but I remember him most from playing the banjo, man could he make that thing talk. He would gladly lend a helping hand to anyone who wanted to learn playing. I know he will be missed by many folks. JP I know what your feeling right now but James would want you to carry on with sharing music and was proud to be a part of your learning stages in the art of playing music. My prayers are with you and James' family.

Post by: YerDugliness on May 10, 2009, 11:57:34 PM
This is just terrible news....James was always there at Pearl, a willing player and an enthusiastic teacher.  He seemed so healthy, I guess this is yet another reminder of how fragile this event we call life is......

So sad for James' family and all those whom he touched with his talent.

Well I missed seeing you all at Pearl this past Saturday. It was spectacular as usual. Late in the evening they had a special tribute to James Reed. All the musicians in the whole building came into the auditorium and lined up all around the outside walls with their instruments and showed their respect for such a wonderful man. Some of the young people that James had helped teach performed on stage and there weren't many dry eyes in the whole building. This man is sorely missed by a multitude of friends.

Just to let you Texas folks know that Pearl will NOT have their Bluegrass Festival on the first weekend of September, which will be this coming weekend the 5th, on account of a Supper for the Foxhound folks put on by Pecan Wells, Mills County, Tx. being on this same date. Pearl will have their getogether for September on the 12th instead. This will be for September only and then back to the first weekend of each month thereafter. Hope to see some of you on the 12th.

was walking from Shiner's office [where i ate lunch] back to my office, when i ran into JP's mom.  we stopped and chatted a bit.  

basically, she really wanted us to go back to Pearl in the near future... they'd missed seeing us; i told her we'd been really busy but promised we'd go soon.  

she was telling me that JP wants to start recording some of his music and wants to come over here to do it.  [:)]

I'm in, will probably go up to that area of Texas sometime mid week, spend a day with my daughter in Austin, might even play with a friend on Thursday night (Pappy, is that invitation still open?).

I'll be tent camping...I'm usually the only one there who does that, so I won't be hard to find.  Just look along the fence to the west of the schoolhouse.

Pray for warm weather, and NO snow, please!!!

Greg, the official festivities don't start till around 1 PM, but by that time there has always been 4 or 5 hours of informal jamming.  There's a group that sets up under the tin roof outside, and 4 other jam rooms inside that gear up pretty quickly in the morning.  Likewise, the informal activities continue on long after the stage acts are done....I usually wander off to bed around 11 PM, others jam on.

Bring a guitar or two or three, your song book, that sort of thing....we like to set up under an old P!ss Elm tree right outside the west entrance.  Since I'll be there early, I'll try to get some gear set up out there and some chairs to reserve the location for us.

Looking forward to adding another to our Texas Washies group, amigo!

Short but great visit with Shiner and CB, but missed meeting Pappy!  That was my first time to the Pearl Bluegrass festival...well, any Bluegrass festival for that matter, and there were a lot of great musicians.  Jam sessions in the rooms, in the halls, outside, by the campers, there was music everywhere!  

Kimo, that's my D56SWCE. Thanks to some inspiration by others who posted their saddle work, I worked it down and really like the action.

The guitar players there could have their own Martin reunion, but one of the old timers did swap with me for a song, and with Dugly's Breedlove. Different axes definitely catch people's eyes, but they are a pretty die-hard group.

also... they premiered a documentary on the Pearl Bluegrass festival this weekend, it's not on DVD yet but will be in a few months.  They are gonna hit some film festivals before releasing it.
http://www.unbrokendocumentary.com/

Most of the people in the trailer were there this weekend - Magoo, the mando player with glasses was there and could kill it.  They had a jam going most of the day Saturday that was awesome.

and what bluegrass festival would be complete without a washtub with a broom handle and string?  Had one of those too!

This place is seriously just a 'map dot' and if you blink you'll miss it, but what a turnout of musicians from near and far!

LOL - only a couple of times, Shiner... well, maybe a few. I think that's the new code for any non-alcohol events - ummm... I think I need to go walk my dog...  If we get together at Pearl again, you guys are welcome to come out and make sure Blackjack is doing well and taken for plenty of walks, or bring the Beagle, that will provide plenty of opportunities to take breaks!

Man, it started raining about 4 am, and I had to go put a tarp over Blackjack'st kennel - no, I did not take him for a walk - and luckily Dugly's tent stayed dry. Thanks again to Dugly for letting me bunk in his tent.  I'm not much on camping but with the dog, it made things easier. The rain let up enough by 7 or so this morning to pack up and hit the road.

Thanks for the pics. It always looks like a good time at Pearl.

Now for the men...I don't want to accuse you guys of being ugly, but let's just say it's a good idea for y'all to be sitting with CB to smooth things out a bit.

legal disclaimer.  I'm allowed to call people ugly because I'm a card-carrying club member.

Blackjack and I had a great trip, and since I didn't want him to feel left out, I went out to my truck often to take him for a walk (and since it was a non-alcohol event, I took the opportunity to have a beer while I was ou there). Here he is enjoying the scenery near Pearl.

JOAN!!!  Great to hear from you again, we had all wondered what happened to you and Lee!

I've cancelled plans to attend this month, but have made arrangements to attend in March (assuming we don't have another blizzard like this one with 200 miles of icy roads to travel [:0] ).  Here's hoping you two can make it down again!

Well, the original washburn that you guys so encouraged me about when I found it in a pawn shop and asked you all about it some 4 years ago,(WD41S) has collected 2 siblings: a D56SW which is the solid rosewood ( I love the sustain and projection of this one!)
Also, there is a solid maple J58SW natural that is really beautiful - you can't beat Washburn - you guys convinced me about the brand and you were right!!
I'd  put some pics into this post but how do you do that??

Joan, most of use use Photobucket.com for our photo hosting.  The account is free and you upload the photos right from your computer.  Once you've uploaded a photo, if you move your cursor over the photo you'll see 4 links below it.  Hilight and copy the IMG link, paste the link in the body of your post, and the image will appear in your post.  If you like, you can put all of your Washburn photos into an album on Photobucket and then post a link to the album in your post...but the photos won't appear that way, only the link. I always edit my photos to the large size (640 X 480) to eliminate the need for scrolling...that often happens when the photos are oversize and fill more than the available screen.

Looking forward to seeing photos of the new crew members, as well as the WD41S)!

Cheers from.....

Hi Joan, maybe one of these days we'll cross paths at Pearl.  I went last year with Dugly and also met Shiner and CB.  Like to go back but having schedule issues lately.  

If you copy the IMG code on the picture on Photobucket then paste it, the actual photo will show up in the thread.

Looks like it, Joan!

I just checked the 10 day weather forecast for Gatesville (not sure Pearl even has a zip-code anymore):

Thurs., 3/3 Partly Cloudy, high 77, low 55, 10% chance of precip.
Friday, 3/4 Partly Cloudy, high 76, low 49, 20% chance
Sat'dy, 3/5 Partly Cloudy, high 71, low 41, 10% chance
Sunday, 3/6 Sunny, high 67, low 45, 0% chance

I'm going to call and make the motel reservations in Gatesville (no camping this time, maybe in April, most assuredly in May as I stop by Pearl on my way to Kansas for a month to work on the High Plains Hacienda [:D] ).

Hoping the rest of you can make it....I might bring my digital camera, maybe we ought to put our theme song, Margaritaville, up on YouTube for the forum to enjoy?

Most likely we'll head up Friday A.M., planz at this time involve making Pearl early Friday afternoon.  For those of you who don't know, the RV's seem to arrive starting sometime on Thursday, by Friday there are jams going on outside as well as inside, and of course Saturday is the event day.  On Sunday things wind down, with the RV's usually pulling out by noon or shortly thereafter.  I like to stay over 'till Monday.....they don't close the school 'till sometime around noon on Monday.  We won't be able to stay through Monday this time, though (will probably leave Sunday AM)....a little thing called work [xx(] .

Looking forward to seeing you all!!!!!

Cheers from.....

Well, another weekend with conflicting plans [:(] (baby shower for a friend [:)]) so I won't make it.  Dugly, we need to pick a weekend and do JP's or just get together.  
The good news is that my girlfriend always tells me to make sure I bring a guitar when I come over, and we sit out on the back porch with friends and enjoy some tunes and cold beer!  Heck, she's even switched to Lone Star Light... [:p]

I'm up for JP's, too....open mic is Sunday night, Hard Times Soup Kitchen is Wednesday night (free food, good music by the Hard Times Troubadores and always a guest musician).  The next two Sundays are already taken, but after that?

How about these from last March?

Jams aren't limited to the rooms, sometimes they just spontaneously spring up in the hallways!

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_3271-1.jpg)

A few of the Texas Washies:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_3264.jpg)

I don't think you've seen this one, CB:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_3262.jpg)

This group is always there, and they are ALWAYS the first act onstage:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_3259.jpg)

Some great jams outside, too (that's DTOM in the red cap standing on the left):

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_3241.jpg)

When the weather gets a bit wet, there's always this covered area outside for those who don't want to stay in the building. Newbies at Pearl should keep their eyes on this area, there is an awesome group that always sets up out there, the fiddle/banjo/mando player is a tobacco junkie and they don't allow smoking inside, so they always play outside:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_3242.jpg)

Jams even break out in the closets [:D] (actually, I just realized that this is a view of the stage from the hallway, not a closet):

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_3258.jpg)

A view of the location for the event, the old schoolhouse...this was a very sparsely attended month, usually there are WAAAY more cars in the parking area:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_3246.jpg)

And, finally, one of the main reasons we all go to Pearl...the FOOD!  Always home cooked, always good:

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_3252.jpg)

(http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd89/YerDugliness/101_3251.jpg)

Hope those will hold you until I return from this month's event [^] .

No pics this month....the pics are usually taken during the down time when the stage acts are not interesting and there is nothing happening in the jam rooms.

This month the stage lineup was incredible....J.P. and his band were there and they played with almost every stage act, J.P. on his mando and Adam Grier on the banjo and his new Martin guitar.  I jammed from Friday afternoon when we arrived (about 5 PM) until we left about 11:30 PM, then again on Saturday from around 7:30, when J.P. and his group finished onstage, until about 8:45....there wasn't any downtime in which to take pics.

Gotta add a few new tunes to the songbook......ya want pics, ya gotta show up [:D], otherwise if the event is as good in April as it was in March, I might not get around to pics, again!

Anyone else out there planning on going?  Becky had a great time at the last one, so we're hoping to camp onsite at this coming event so we can take advantage of the night-time jams going on in the classrooms.

Cheers, hoping to see some of you!

I won't make it Dugly, gonna chow on some mudbugs (crawfish, crawdads, crayfish, etc).  Glad to hear Becky enjoyed it, ya'll have fun!

BTW we still need to hook up so I can get my folk song book back. Did you ever get a bluegrass song book?  I haven't really used mine so might make you a good deal if you want it.

Thought I'd put out the curtain call again...I'm on my way to Kansas for about 6 weeks, more routine maintenance on the old 1920's High Plains Hacienda, and I am going to stop by Pearl for a few days......hope to arrive on Thursday and leave on Sunday or maybe even Monday.

Sure would be good to see and play with y'all again....I'll miss June's Pearl event b/c I'll be in Kansas, and also July as I will be recreating at a nature preserve near Rockport, TX during the week of the 4th of July.

Hey, DTOM, you're right! I do have your book, but I've been in Huntsville for the past 2 weeks, helping build a pergola, and soon as I make it down to Rosenberg (hopefully tomorrow) I'm loading the trailer and car to head for Austin, planning to spend a couple of days with Jade before I disappear into that great breadbasket in the middle of our country.  Let's plan on getting together at JPHH for open-mic night when I get back, OK?

Dugly, yes let's try to hook up at JPHH when you get back.  If you get back up to Huntsville, let me know, I have a place just off the Trinity river about 15 min. from there and usually there at least a couple times a month.  

Shiners - have a great trip to Aruba!  Make sure to check the operating capability at the Balashi brewery so they can replenish the stock by the time I get there in June [8D]  BTW - my Mom sent me a contact for snorkeling in Aruba.  Do a search for Kent Gerber Aruba - he posts on the bulletin boards and takes small groups out and has water scooters that pull you around.  He only asks for donations to cover the cost of the equipment and goes down several times a year but I'm not sure if he'll be there when you are.

We've been short an attorney at my office for three months... To say I'm crispy is an understatement... I am sooooo looking forward to this!  We will post pics when we get back, I promise to play lots of beach guitar, and DTOM, we will check him out!

Well, I'm back from Winfield...and already Pearl looms in the near future!!

I think Becky and I will make a stab at attending this month...October can be great camping weather and after 2 weeks in a tent at Winfield, we've NOT had enough of the camping [:0] (yeah, and pigs fly, too [:D]) .  

Anyway, anyone want to join us, the call is out, come on up and make yourself at home! We'll probably head for Gatesville for dinner Saturday, no campfire cooking with the drought, that's for sure! We know of a place that puts out a great steak [^] !!

Hope to CYA!!!

Cheers from.....

Anyone interested in making the trip to Pearl in November?

We're thinking about going up Friday, coming home Sunday, not sure if we'll camp or not...I guess it just depends on the weather.

Last month there was another tent camper there....and we know of one more family that tried tent camping but had their tent blow down in a strong wind (they didn't use guy-ropes...we slept through it, didn't even know the wind came up).

Anyone????
