Title: Wagjam
Post by: Toaster20 on April 24, 2007, 10:26:57 PM
There have been a lot of new faces on the board lately and some might not know about WAGJam.  We're getting together in Vegas for a few days to see how much noise we can make with our Washburns!  Everyone's welcome and as time is running out, it would be great for some of you new and not-so-new members to sign up.

All it takes is a lousy, measly $100 to reserve your spot. Total cost will be more than that, but we need a good headcount in order to figure it out.  The more who come, the lower the cost.

Here's a link to my site where you can find some details, and an easy way to sign up.  Deposits can be made with cash, checks, credit cards, paypal, wampum, you name it.  Heck, we'll even take Canadian dollars if you have enough of 'em [:)]

See you in Vegas!

Hey, wish you could make it too brother.  But hopefully this will be the first of many to come.  Less than 30 days and we'll be enjoying a little down time with good friends and good music (except for when I'm playing . . . um . . . on the good music part[B)]).

Shiner,Shiner when will you ever learn, its easy making good music its tough to relax when you are having to much fun.Dr.Ship recommends at least 3 beers in the morning followed by some guitar playing,and then take 2 beers after lunch and play some more playing and then you will need a mid-afternoon snack of at least 1 beer, with 5 beers right after dinner, and then we will need to take you into town and do a little gambling and sight seeing,sorry I dont do topless dancers,but I will recommend some more guitar playing and then a nice leisurely run in the morning to help burn off some of those calories,dang just over 3 weeks to go my brain is a racing with excitment,common guys beg,borrow or steal to get there its going to be fun and the more the merrier,Dave thats $1.1860 for every US dollar, but hey whos counting,I need a vacation,got to get away, and hey guys I get to play with everybody else's girls.louis[:p]

Hey Squint, my tax bill was larger than expected.[:D]  Ah hell, who am I kidding, I won't pay my taxes till October (thank God for automatic extensions!).

I still need to find one more shipping box, but here's the short list:

I'm bringing my D10S and my D46S12, Child bride is bringing her Augusta and Storm (J28S12DL her Cumberland 12 string) and Baby girl will be bringing her D46S.

If we can find it, the Shiner Bock is on me (literally and figuratively) and don't forget Child bride will be making her world famous chili one night.  Between that and Ed Roman's we're going to have more gas then we know what to do with![:D]

I can't wait to hear two Cumberland 12s doing their thing! That will be awesome!

I've also worked up some easy chord arrangements for some of our best songs that I'll be teaching everyone, and free CDs to boot!

It's gonna be fun.

Shiner are you saying that I should also bring the tums for the tummy, are you bringing some hot habenero's for us to chew on while playing and waiting for the chilli.Sorry guys its a real pain in the butt to take a guitar across unless I am working down there,its a lot easier to have the Management fill in documentation for the work permits and gear,so I hope you dont mind me borrowing one or two or three for the night ,I can't wait, the excitment is bubbling over in our house, wifes happy she gets the bed to her self,daughters happy cause dads not going to wake her up esarly to clean her stuff up( little does she know I have bribed the wife,hee hee) and me well I get to meet some great new friends and play music,what more can a man ask for.louis

Whoops, did again.  Accidentally posted as Childbride, here ya go.

Ship,

For some reason I sincerely doubt we're going to have a shortage of beautiful guitars waiting to be played. Believe me, I've tried to play more than one guitar at a time, and it's really, really, really hard. In case you didn't notice, really is the word of the day.

And yeah, that whole customs thing can be a real b***h. When I took Childbride to the island, the only thing they inspected was the guitar. I guess that whole Johnny Cash thing has made them suspicious of folks who take their guits across the border.

Childbride the only think I will spill on her is maybe some drool,as for big Toruble ,well lets just say once upon a time that was my middle name, and Squinty you know I'll gladly test drive your little women also while getting a sun tan at the smae time,who could ask for more, life is wonderful,counting the minutes away,as for Ed Romans Guitar Emporium, wife has suggested VERY STRONGLY that I should probably pass on going there, have far to much room on the credit cards to be safe in there and I am considering going back to the Dark Side of Music and I may be in need of a few electrics,been drooling over a friends Telee that he is thinking of selling to me, he bought my Strats,so he said I would get first dibs on the Telee.Anyway I best leave now the excitment is building to great heights.say good night louis,good night louis.louis
PS Shiner I have played two guitars at the almost same time, used a guitar stand to hold an acoustic while having my Start on at the same time to get the sound required[:D][}:)]but it can be a pain in the, well you know where.

Wagjam Setlists.
I was thinking that everyone should come up with 2 or 3 songs that they want the group to work on.  Bring a bunch of photocopies.  For example, I'm bringing Like A Rolling Stone.  Nice and easy and the more guitars the better.

Shiner, you can print out some of your Carpenters classics.

Woo Hooo!!!!

Louis, you might want to remove the bands just in case, but they really shouldn't hassle you about them. Bring as many as you can and I will make sure they find a home, (he said trying not to be open about buying them... ;-))

And yes, you can (still) smoke in the casinos. It's one thing Bush has managed to keep alive by not messing with it. Harry Reid, on the other hand, is from Vegas and he's trying to get them to stop allowing smoking in the casinos, so go figure!

Don't bring so many they give you a hard time about it, louis, but I will gladly trade guitar-time for Havanas, any day!

This is getting really exciting!!!

Now that I've got a great deal on the SUV for the herd, I'll only have to sell one kidney to cover the gas prices!

Speaking of... I hope you get a break on your fuel cost, louis. That's a long drive!

Hey Kudos to our new friend Mr. Fitz who made this awesome Freak Flag for Wagjam!  This will help set the mood for some serious rockin.  He's quite an artist with the dye, wouldn't you say?

Hey Rocket, that chambered LP reminds me of my old Gretsch Roc Jet. Sorry to change topic or if you answered this already, but how's the feedback?

Wings,
A.  You mean we're going to miss you by a few hours??
B.  I heard about that show.  That was the catalyst behind all the Beatles remixes on the Love album. That's gonna be great!  Thanks for the tip.

 Happy anniversary to you and Mrs. Wings.  (aka Wingsmom?)

Toast,
Yeah, thanks, and 'Wingsmom' is precisely appropriate. Uncanny you should go there. Sometime, I'll explain all that.

Having just landed the new job, we'll be lucky just to get away from it all for 2 nights. A short 200 mile drive from Sin City. We'll probably get up there around 9-10 Friday nite, play all nite, head for 'breakfast' around 3-4 Sat. afternoon, and to the show. But Sunday traffic back to California down the I-15 can be so rugged that a normal 2-3 hour drive often turns into 6-8 hours if you split Vegas after 10-11am. I clock-in to work Monday at 7:30am.

Yep, that's the show. The Love album is basically the soundtrack. The show is in the former Siegfried & Roy theatre at the Mirage. There's a Beatles themed nightclub called 'Revolution' there, too. Any of you WagJammers digging the Beatles ought to at least dip in one night for that if you can't get show tix. I got ours 2 months ago calling the box office; online showed best seats were last row balcony.  I think the show is dark Tuesday-Wednesday?

Thanks for the nice words.  A few years ago I became very interested in learning how to do unusual shapes and patterns with dyes.  I learned how to fold, stitch, and twist fabric to yield various shapes and patterns.  Admittedly, it's an odd thing to be interested in, but it works for me.  

I can't figure out how to post pictures here, but if you follow the link you can see what a tapestry for a Deadhead convention might look like:

The Shiner family will be rolling into Vegas at 9:45 p.m. on Sunday May 20, via Buick boat.  Squint, I think I'm going to mail the guits via USPS priority mail on Friday the 18th, I think that should put them there sometime on Monday.  Toaster, does that sound right or should I wait to Saturday to ship them out?

Squint checked with Customs (wife made me do it) they informed me if they suspect they are Cubans even for personal use they may take them and the rest away,so its Hondurans or Niguaragan's only,wife mentioned something about the fact that we dont have the Death Penalty and that she would only serve a very short time due to stress being brought on by said husband,she maybe choked a bit about the amount we spent on Wine,which is funny cause I drink Scotch and only a occasional bottle of wine,unless its bubbly,go figure hey,but I got to keep this one dont want to try and train a new one, far to much work and I aint getting any younger.louis......sorry about getting your hopes up[:(]

Well, got the guits boxed up and ready to ship out tomorrow.  I had one of those pesky job things that was going to tie me up most of the day tomorrow, but it fell through.  So just eight more hours of work (who the hell am I kidding, six at best) and we'll be on island time!  Our son is coming into town tomorrow so he can see Baby girl when she comes in on Saturday, Sunday we're flying out.  Let me just tell ya', Shiner is a very happy man right now.[:)]

The WAGJAMOBILE is a brand new Chrysler Pacifica 4.0. Only 500 miles on it! Leather interior... Premium sound system... arrh...arhhh...arrrrh..

See y'all there!

And son't worry about bringing a guitar. I can only say that you will wish you had because you will probably wind up buying one of the herd when you fall in love with it.

You've been warned!

The weird thing is the looks I've been getting from local lawyers and Judges when I tell them that we're going to Vegas but I don't enjoy gambling.  Have y'all ever thought about how difficult it is to explain our little community to people who are not a part of it?

Yeah, good point Shiner.  Luckily for you, your Child Bride is part of the group.  
Try explaining a week in Vegas to a wife who doesn't understand GAS!

i go get the 12'er who is the sister to BG's git and shiner and i start playing on the patio with the fireflies all around. we serenaded the neighbors.  i caught a firefly in a jar and let it go to light again.  i felt like a little kid.  

we ship out tomorrow, i have a house full of happiness and life is Good.

peace, love, and happy things,

Heh, heh, Vegas Vacation with the Shiner family in tow.  The only thing that would have made it better is if I had an old station wagon to load the family up in.[:p]

Well we're just about packed up and ready to go.  Flight leaves out at 6:40 p.m. our time and we should be pulling in to Vegas about 9:45 their time.  Enjoyed visiting with our son last night, and he and Baby Girl enjoyed spending a little time together.  Funny thing about kids, it doesn't matter how old they are, when they get together they slip back into the comfortable routines of their childhood.  They hadn't been together fifteen minutes before I hear DAD . . . HE'S TOUCHING ME . . MAKE HIM STOP!  Followed shortly by DAD . . . SHE'S LOOKING AT ME . . . MAKE HER STOP!  Enjoy 'em while you can folks.  They grow up quick.[:)]

Hey Shiner I would lend you my Dads Wagon,but alas he wrapped it around a pole, see you kids tomorrow night, as for the kids, did they have a time out together. sad_fingers why didnt you come,yep its small now but everything starts off that way and next thing you know the whole forum wants to come to the next one,can you imagine that and the chaos that would come along with that.
Hope the next one planned can be done in Canada, so all of you who think you have great beer can discover a truly hidden secret here in Canada, we make not only good beer,but the absolute best beer in the world.Anyone want to challenge me on that,yep that what I thought can't beat a cold Canadian beer anytime.louis

louis, you're gonna really like the villa. Even in this desert, it is cool and comfy here. The place has everything and is spotless! The yard (and everyone elses around), looks like a moonscape. Rocks are obviously easier than grass. You don't have to mow them. But the inside is so nice! The grill looks brand new. There's everything you'd need that you'd never get in a hotel and the surrounding area is very well off. We'll probably be heading to Memphis BBQ tonight when the Shiners get here. The 24 hour WalMart is only about a mile away.

We're having a blast already. Spamalot was a riot! My face still hurts from laughing so much!

See ya tomrrow!

Squint, Glad to see you made it to Vegas!!  It looks like you have internet access figured out.  Is there wireless DSL?  I'm bringing my laptop but if you can think of anything we'll need, let me know - maybe I have it.  I can't wait to see you and the crew tomorrow!

There is so much happeneing here... I can't find the time to tell y'all, but I have made some friends for life here at the WAGjam and I can't thank WASHBURN enough for giving us this forum. I'll get into details when I've got time, but let me just say that anyone who can't make it this year, should start planning a WAGjam for your own area. This is turning out to be the vacation of a lifetime. How often do you get to make friends for life and play your Washies at the same time?

You know the answer...

Very early Tuesday morning - a few quick comments. My brain's on east-coast time but the sun is just starting to rise here in Vegas. What a great day we had yesterday. I flew 2000 miles to get here but last night alone was worth the price of admission. I see Squint posted a few pics already but that's the tip of the iceberg.

What a great GREAT night of jamming. We played until we dropped at about 4AM and I can't remember that last time I had that much fun. Everyone here is as cool as I knew they'd be, and everyone brings different songs to the table. Lots of great music passed through here last night and there's so much more to do. You should hear how great a room full of Washburns can sound! It's good stuff.

The Villa is perfect for what we're doing and there are a LOT of guitars here. But the most important element should come as no surprise - it's the people. On one hand, we've never really met. On the other hand, we've been friends for years. It's interesting to me to see that the positive vibe thing that makes the forum so special can make it's way from the cyber world into the physical one. The chemistry here is all good.

That's all for now. I'll try to post a little more later. I know that a lot of you guys would be here if you could and believe it or not... you are!

I am tickled for you folks, sure wish I could have been there. Play a song for me and get Childbride to sing one for me. Have fun and take lots of pictures for rememberences when you get older.

As for pictures: yes, I would love to know who is who and I would like to offer my Photoshop skills to maybe do a photo-collage and identify everyone, just send me your images with the appropriate information and I'll put something together.  Some suggestions: a group shot of course, a shot of the hotel/surroundings, lots of candid shots, especially jamming, but everything else too.  The higher the resolution, the better!

Happy WagJamming!

But I surely be able to follow your discussion and answer by YES or NO at least !! lollll

Nice familly guitar shot !!! PLEASE tell us who is there !! Paul Simon song book, hope someone is playing Scarborough Fair capo 9 fingerpicking style [;)]

Very early Wednesday morning...  Here comes the sun again.  It's nice to check the forum to see you guys are with us too - we really appreciate that.  

My fingers are turning into sore, bloody stumps and I mean that in a good way.  So far, this has been a lot of fun for me. I'm surrounded by guitars and good people.  Music and encouragement are being shared. Everybody's learning from everybody else.  It is exactly what it's supposed to be.

Interestingly enough, that music is hanging on a huge television - probably a 60 set which has never been turned on.  EXCEPT of course for American Idol, which is the center of Baby Girl's life.  

Trivia question:   Name that tune John!

Hey Pappy, we're working on a couple songs to jam out at Pearl with ya'!

Things are great here and we're having a helluva time.  It has literally been guitar boot camp and I can't even tell you how much I've learned and how much fun I've had.  It has been so unusual to realize how well we know each other.  From the very first moment it has been less like a gathering of strangers and more like a reunion of old friends.  Everyone has been great and has been very patient with the ole' Shineman slowing things down as I watch their fingers and try to figure out new things.  I wish y'all could all be here just to be a part of this.

I'm borrowing Toaster's computer to post this, but as soon as I get back I'll upload some of my pictures.  Thanks to everyone for all of the interest, and I'm glad we get to share this with all our online friends.[:)]

Wednesday night / Thursday morning... It's about 2am here, and about 5am at home.  My fingers are sore - can't play any more tonight.  Squint is still playing though - I don't think he ever sleeps.

The guitars have been active around the clock.  We had a really good session tonight.  We played everything from the serious to the silly.  Everyone brings something different to the table but it all mixes together really well.   I think there were a couple moments of actual musical magic.  Know what I mean? Fun stuff.

Here are a few pics from today.  More later!

Sorry guys as for the ship of fools,no can give who he is,you will have to guess the names(but I dont speak for the others,thats up to them)Now for the main part.Well I leave tomorrow and I can't tell you how happy I will be when I leave Vegas I need to go home to get some rest,in others words I am going to need a vacation.Being the oldest is not advantages at all,can't keep up with these whipper snappers, first night bed at 2:30 am,up at 4:30 am,Tueasday bed at 1:00 am up in the morning at 5:00 am last night bed at about 2:00 am up this morning at 5:30 am always the first up, so I need to get home so I can have some rest.Dang you have no idea how much fun you will have missed out on, there are not the words available to describe the great time we are having and the amount that even I have learnt,everybody including Child-Bride and Baby-Girl who have not played long have bought things to the table and you can see vast amounts of improvment in everybodies playing,myself included.
We are planning another WAGJam either here in the US or in Canada about the same time of year again,dont let the next on slip away.
You will miss out on some of the very best workshops without having to pay hundreds of dollars for the privledge of learning from someone else, this puppy was free and you could and would have gone home with better fingers and life lasting memories, and friendships that will last you a life time,which can never be beat.
We are all different in what and how we play,but remember why you are on the forum it,s to learn and share your love of Washburn guitars, and its really to bad that we couldnt have browndog join us, he is after all a dang good mandoline player from what some others have mentioned(sorry BD) cant mention any names,but you were missed by the very least me,it would have been nice to hook up and jam together , and pay attention everybody...a family that jams together stays together......well so much for the wise words from the Ship of fools,didnt mean to be winded but I thought I should share my evaluation on WAGJam cause I have nothing but love for the Forum and Washburn Guitars,way to go USMusic, and hey BD you can use my statement anytime you want,yours truly kids and adult.louis

Hi Flint.  Glad to have you on the forum!  Your partner is doing great.  We just got back from an excellent day of dining, gambling, and shopping at Ed Roman's.  

No new guitars for Squint today but a quick heads up... there's this girl singer who Squint's been working with all week.  She might actually need to become the third Cowboy.  Or Cowgirl.  Or Cowperson.  Not that she looks like a cow or anything...

Hey Flint, welcome to the forum.  We've enjoyed jamming on a few of your songs this week.  I wish you could have made it, it would have been a pleasure meeting you, but maybe next year.

Now Yan, I've been called a lot of things in my life[:D], but no one ever said I looked like John Denver.  So you busted the dude in the black shirt, that's me.

Had a great time today folks.  Squint took us out for an excellent meal at the Stratosphere (thank you Squint), did a little gambling, then headed over to Ed Romans.  No one bought any guitars, but I did get a good look at the SW32 and I think I've got gas REALLY BAD (some of that could be attributed to Child Bride's excellent chili last night).

We're headed out EARLY tomorrow for the flight home, but I have to say this really has been one of the sweetest vacations the Shiner family has had in a long time.[:)]

Just like a great novel,,you guys are leaving the rest of us wanting more,,,

I tend to go back to the genesis of this idea and the twists and turns that it took to completion.  Congratulations to all of you kind folks who made it happen.

I do not care who is who, but, want you all to know that there will probably be a lot more interest in the next meeting.

When you are out on the economy, do you tell the locals that you are attending a guitar convention???  Then again, how many locals do you find in Las Vegas??

Would love to hear a review of Roman's.

Steve

This week was one of the most wonderful vacations i have ever had in my lifetime.  everyone is eating a second batch of cornbread right now and just talking around the bar.  

i can't tell all y'all how wonderful this experience has been for me.  i learned new songs, i learned new chords, and most importantly for my advancement, i went a HUGE way into getting over my utter terror of playing and singing in front of others. [:)]

i can't tell y'all enough; the one thing i have taken away from this experience is just how wonderful everyone i have met has been.  these are the nicest, most encouraging, funny, and sweet people... i feel like i have known them all forever.

i may leave here tomorrow, but i know i have made friends for life.  

how wonderful is that?!

Thanks, one and all.  If the timing would have been a bit better, I'd be there with you all.  It sounds like a blast.  I would need to go through a 'spring training' to get ready to play that much!

The pushy one?  Maybe, but if the guys haven't figured it out already, Squint's the implusive one!

Did any other non-Washburn guitars make an appearance or is that a WAGJAM no-no?

A female singer?  I'll have to finish that duet I was working on.  I have a raison d'etre for that tune!

Have a fine last day.  Getting killed with email today.  I'll try to check back this afternoon.

Well, the Shiner family made it home safe and sound.  Had to get up at 4:00 a.m. so we're pretty bushed, but at least we've got the long weekend to rest up and get back in our time zone.  I have to install my digital camera software on my new computer before I post any pics, so that will probably be coming on Monday, but I promise there are plenty o' pics on the way!

Hey Shiner family, Glad to hear you made it home ok.  I got home around 7PM Eastern.  A LONG day of traveling but it was worth every minute.  It was great to finally meet all of you.  Ship is probably in the air right now.

There's a lot to report to the group but for now I'll just say this.  Shiner is as silly and bizarre in real life as he is on the forum.... non-stop!  And that's a good thing.

More later!

MAde it back after Ship forced me to take him to the airport early so I promptly got lost for a couple of hours, wound up at Ed Romans'... no trades or purchases and that Centura is in need of serious attention... after driving all the way around downtown like we did the other day... traffic going TO Vegas was at a STANDSTILL for about 150 miles. All the way from the 215 to Pasadena. Our timing couldn't have been more perfect!

I am still digesting and smiling at the kooky fun we had this week, so there will be MUCH more posted later. Stick around. Especially the kind things Ed ROman had to say about Washburn... VERY interesting.

Walk the walk, jammers!

giggety...

BG and Toast, there will be cd's and music comin at ya this week, so hang on mi delgados!

Child Bride is an angel in disguise.

Babygirl is an incredible light in a very dull world and by far the most smartest of our little group next to CB...

And Shiner... that boy jus ain't right! ;-)

And LOUIS... he's just f*****g cool.

Toast? He has so much TALENT and an incredible EAR that's almost as good as mine and will be better.
Plus, he's a righteous dude.

Well I am home after the most bizzare day of my life so I will end the Story of WAGJam 007(seeing how I am so freakin cool and so old).
     Woke up Friday moring at 4:00 am to make sure the Shiner family and Toaster had coffee before the cab came(in Vegas they dont take dirrection very well,when youy pre-book a cab for 4 and 4 guitars and suitcases,they sent a regular cab,so Toaster took that one while the Shiners had to wait for an SUV) anyway,back to the Story.They left( balled my eyes out,yep the Ship is very mushy )Squint woke up early( at least very early for him ) and started packing up and decided he didnt want to stay by himself,so I,I,I,I,I,suggested that he can drop me off earlier so he can get on the road,not to go back to ED's ( but that is another story I will let Squint tell ).    Well we get to the Airport at about 12:45 and I am thinking I have a couple of wobbly pops(beer) and have some lunch,to discover Terminal 2 has no food until after you check in, not till 5:30 PM and couldnt even get a bottle of water(gave all of my change to B-G's tip jar that morning and of course nobody could make change for you there.
    So I sit,patiently and while doing so I am acosted by a fella screaming at me that he needs an ambulance,I tell him I am not from here,and where the heck is security,they aren't in  the check-in area of course.meet a great couple at 2:45 PM and they yak till its time to go home.
Finally make it to customs,they search me like I am transporting something I shouldnt be ,but thats Okay as I understand I look scary to them,no prob,start to look for food and muust have a serious drink or two,find a bar walk in its empty,so I ask the server if they are open he basically tells me no and then tells me to get the hell out NOW,what a jerk,end up eating some real gourmet food Pizza hut,stomach still hurts after that.

Okay enough of one crappy day,wow I wouldn't trade WAGJam007 for nothing,learned a ton of stuff,Childbride is drop dead gorgeous,Baby-Girl you made this trip even more fun then you can know(thanks and listen to Uncle Ship when he tells you,forget an instrument for school,you have your own when you sing,she has a great voice,its wonderful to listen to)and well what can I say about Shiner,well it woint be on a open forum where it might be used against him,that boy is just nuts,I know I must have taught him every thing he knows.
Toaster is like a sponge with music, he just picks up things like you wouldnt believe,and dang the boy can play,he has talent that he doesnt talk about( T keep up with your lessons,you are freaking fantastic,because you can feel and hear the music, not everybody has that).
We need a new line when it comes to Squint, because he is a real rebel with-out a cause and a damn good nice guy all around, no matter what some of you think about him,he is the one that will take his shirt off and give it to you right after you spit on him,the salt of the earth and someone who has made the biggest contribution to this forum for keeping this alive( no matter what you all think,cause it did develope its own life in Vegas and hopefully we can keep it going forever)As for me well lets just say I have doen and been places that most have never seen and I have done things that most wold never get to experience.Lets just say this had its ilfe and I gave what I could,but I took away a ton of memories that don't have a price tag.So you young punks out there the gauntlet has been thrown down by us now its up to you to keep it alive,no this doesn't mean we wont ever come back. It just means if you want something bad enough you will find a way to make it happen and I guarentee you will learn more than you will imagine.The ship signing off now.louis.....ps I really do love you guys that attended and will always have a place ot my table for you,we shared a lot more than music.....thank-you my friends.....pss not spell check at all so please bear with me

One of the interesting things about the Jam is that we almost never left the house!  We had a few excellent cooks with us (there's a lot more to Louis than meets the eye.  I think we need a 'Louis' thread) and so we made some supply runs, but for the most part we were self-contained in the Villa.  It wasn't until Thursday that we went out and saw the sites of Vegas.

Here is the view from the restaurant Squint took us too.  The highest point in Las Vegas and one of the best restaurants in the country.  I know someone has better pictures but this is the view from our table.

And here is our pilgramage to Ed Roman's

We will definately need to get into an Ed Roman's thread too.

Squint and Louis... I just read your compliments and I appreciate what you've said.  I don't know that I agree with them but I'll let it go at that.  It means a lot to me.  Playing with seasoned players like yourselves (big on talent and tiny on ego) brings out the best in all of us.  Thanks for giving me the opportunity to stretch out a little on guitar and to make mistakes without really caring.  I think I heard myself singing once or twice and that's something I've NEVER done!  

That's the way to pass this kind of music on!

Hey Lou, glad to hear you made it back safely brother.  Don't be too hard on customs, you know how vicious those Canadian terrorists can be.[:D]

Toaster is dead on.  We were having so much fun at the villa that we rarely had reason to leave.  Usually started out the morning with enough coffee to wake the dead, followed by a little jamming.  Early afternoon was a supply run to the grocery store for whatever supplies were needed by whoever was volunteering to cook that night.  Followed by more jamming, then a couple of hours pool break.  After supper was when the real jam session would start (although someone was usually playing guitar at some point throughout the entire day).  It was not at all unusual to see the evening jam sessions last till three or four in the morning.  SQUINT NEVER SLEEPS!  Honestly dude, you're like the energizer bunny brother!  Old man Shiner was ALWAYS the first one to call it quits and hit the sack.  I just can't keep up with these darn younguns'.[8D]

Oh, almost forgot to mention, did you know that the sun is ALWAYS over the yardarm by noon in Vegas?  Heh, heh.  I'll let you old guys explain to the kids what that means.[:D]

Hey I was held over in Cleveland for about an hour yesterday.  No time to pop in for a visit but I sent some positive vibes your way around 3:00 PM.  Did you feel it?

Well, Baby Girl got on the road this morning, so it's a little quiet and lonely here at the Shiner household.  Even though we had a great time together, it's always hard when they leave.  Hopefully she'll have the chance to come visit again at the end of the summer before she starts school.

We miss you already Baby Girl.[:(]

I don't know that I can tell you the total, but here's my best guesstimate:  we brought three guitar stands, two music stands, and five guitars.  Toaster brought one music stand and one guitar.  Squint brought five(?) guitar stands and eleventymillion guitars.[:)]

Great pictures Shiner!
I don't think we ever had all of the guitars out at one time, and I kind of regret that we never got a good couch picture with all of them together.  But if I had to guess, I'd go with eleventymillion.

Hey Millenium I did the BIGGEST tipping of Baby_Girl,she was well worth it,that voice would make even the most stubborn pay attention,sure wish we had a recorder there so you guys and girls could hear her sing,she had a couple of toonies in her pot,however I think her asperations for tips was,well maybe just a bit TOO BIG,but hey you can't blame her for trying( after all thats just who she is).As for how many guitars,Squint brought 10, Shiner family had 5,Toaster 1 and the Ship, well he got to play all the others,by the way Shiner did you get around to changing ChildBirides mediums to lights,just remember it will bring her to life like you wouldn't believe,it will sing like song birds sings a sweet melody.And hows that working for ya(Dr.Phil refrence).louis

Now that I've got a few minutes to try to remember all that went on, and believe me, there was always something to do, I'll try to relate some thoughts on this, the FIRST WAGJAM...

Everyone was so nice. The manners went out the door with the first burp, but from the second they arrived, everyone felt very much at ease with each other. I feel like my family just gained a bunch of cool folks who love Washburns! If you have ever dreamed of getting away and doing NOTHING but living, talking, eating, breathing, playing, holding guitars... and especially WASHBURNS... then you would have loved the WAGJAM. That's just about all we did.

No one was tied to any schedule. The only plans made were for lunch or who needed what booze from the store. We were very close to anything we needed. Even 24 hr groceries and pharmacies! The Memphis BBQ was within walking distance, but we always took the Official WAGJAM Chrysler Pacifica (thanks for the great deal ENTERPRISE!!! Y'all ROCK!), because it was there and it was very comfy. Gas wasn't too expensive in Vegas compared to L.A., but I only needed to fill her up once. If you're looking for a great small SUV that's wide enough to put 5 guitars in the back and then have so much room for 5 more that you have no problem seeing out the back, and you want one good on gas, then the Chrysler Pacifica is for you! Rent one from Enterprise next time you can and you'll see what I mean!

The weather... perfect! Not too hot and it was a nice dry heat. The evenings really cooled off and we actually went outside to hop around on the moon rocks that Las Vegas folks use instead of grass because it's much cheaper to rake rocks than water grass. But we'd be out smoking cigars or cigarettes and we'd hear something coming from an acoustic and have to put the butts out and go see who was playing what, or who was losing at pool, etc... then there were the nights we were serenaded by a local show band practicing nearby. They were TIGHT!

Even though we were very close to the airport, we were not bothered by the planes. I am constantly being awakened by planes from the Burbank airport, but not in Vegas. I actually had a difficult time sleeping the first night due to the QUIET! LOL!

We had a HUGE tv and we mostly used it as a song display. I have not missed this much tv since I was grounded as a kid and I am happy to report that I don't miss it!

What else...? I'll post more as the memories come in to stay, but for now, I've got five new best friends and I've got this forum to thank for it.

Till next time,

giggity

OK, I've emptied my camera and put together a little slideshow.  You've seen some of these pictures, but not all of them. Some of these were stolen directly from Shiner.  It's a BIG file, so if you're using dial-up, don't bother with this.  But if you have a fast connection, then I hope you'll like this!

Dang Toaster I may not be able to wait for WAGJam 2008 I felt home sick watching that video,they will never truly get just how much fun we all had together like that.
Its to bad we couldnt talk Washburn(USMusic) into sponsoring another one, say in Chicago, right near the factory, with some new proto=types.Now that would be the endorsment of a life time,hint,hint browndog,I am sure we could all slip away say for a week-end or even several more days to help with this.After all I really want to try out that sweet looking bluegrass sweety,and who knows maybe a release or two of songs,I am sure with Toasters writing and Squints and Baby_Girl and I could come up with some music for it,you WAGGERS up for that.Hint,hint, a year just seems so far away.louis

One of the things I wish we did was record a few numbers.  We never really got around to it though.  Maybe if there were a few more people there we could have shot some video.  At any rate, Dead Flowers worked out because it was one of the tunes we did a few times, AND it happened to be just about the perfect length for the slide show!

There was plenty that should have been taped, but it was all we could do to get everyone playing the same chords, so we really didn't need the added stress.

This, the first WAGJAM, was designed so that the next people who have one will be able to modify it to their needs and wants.

Really wish we'd gotten those Delgados covers on tape, but who knows... maybe something better is in the making. We'll see...

Besides, who wants to hear my sad bastard songs anyway??

Squint had the most unusual sheet music & tab collection. Along with a few happy tunes, he has a lot of bizarre, 14th century funeral marches that make you want to kill yourself.

We are just going to have to find some happy songs for Squint to perform next time, and for sure we are going to have to record the music nights or days,don't think I can stay up that late again.Next time may kill me( or should I say my wife will kill me for all the bit**ing and crumbling I did when I got home)I think next time I will bring a DVD Camcorder and set it up so as to capture the true nature of the beast that was created.Dang I wish we could do it again we had so much fun.louis

Right Louis.  I realize that some people are tired of hearing about Wagjam.  But there was a certain 'synergy' there.  I have to be honest; I'm having a tough time getting back into my routine since Vegas.  I don't think I'm even the same person anymore.

We DEFINATELY need do this again and get a few more people involved!

Well, if you guys really want to hear more about Wagjam, let me help you out.  Hopefully I won’t bore you.  The night Childbride, Babygirl and I arrived, our plane was 40 minutes late because one of the flight attendants broke bones in her hand on the previous flight.  We had to wait till a new flight attendant arrived for “safety reasons”.  By the time we got to the villa, Squint was scared to death that a nefarious Canadian terrorist had hijacked the plane or something.[:D]  We got there around 11:00 p.m. and stayed up till three or four o’clock in the morning chatting, playing pool, and playing guits.  Toaster and Ship arrived the next day.  The funny thing about the arrivals was, we all immediately began hugging each other and talking as fast as we could.  This wasn’t a group of strangers meeting each other, this was a group of old friends who hadn’t seen each other in a long time. The first night we ordered pizza because we were way to busy with other things to bother cooking.

Louis was definitely the early riser.  No matter how late we stayed up, he would be awake by 4:30-5:00 a.m.  and always had coffee waiting for us.  By the way Ship, you make one helluva cup of coffee.  Louis was our sage, regaling us with stories of broken contracts and music made.  And man could he play, AND sing.  He has this tenor voice, raspy, which lends itself to old blues and stories of bar fights, or at least dodging beer bottles.  I would normally awake second (except for Thursday), to the distant sound of Louis strumming away and singing in the other room, usually around 8:00 a.m.  A quick shower, grab a cup of coffee, and Louis and I would sneak outside for a quick smoke (no smoking in the Villa, so we had to go out on the patio).   Followed for the next few hours with more coffee, conversation, and a few songs.

Toaster and Squint brought their laptops, and they always left them out so we take a quick peek at the forum.  I’m proud to say I went the entire week without checking my email.  What do I need with legal questions or offers to sell me Viagra, or which stock I need to buy in a hurry.

Usually Childbride and Toaster would get up around the same time.  Followed shortly by Squint with his trademark sunglasses.  By the way, Squint was our energizer bunny.  You do NOT want to see him at 10:00 a.m. with two cups of Ship’s coffee in him!  He was also our night owl.  I don’t know how he does it, but I don’t think he ever sleeps!

Babygirl was always the late riser, but in all fairness, she warned us ahead of time.  She would usually make an appearance around 11:00 a.m. to noon.  It was so cute to watch her and Squint though.  Early on she connected with him as her brother by proxy.  In the afternoons they would play pool and spar with each other verbally.  We would all laugh our tails off as she gave him crap about where he had misplaced the receipt for the pizza!

There was always someone playing a guitar throughout the day.  And Toaster, having taken lessons from Tom Cruise, every time he heard a song he liked would come running across the tile floor in his socks and slide for a half mile!  Squint, Ship and Toaster were scary smart on the guitar.  I was definitely the guy who had been held back a few years.  But it didn’t matter.  When we played I would strum along, kind of as the background.  And OH MY, the guitars we got to play.  Squint, before I die I will own a Centura.  I know it’s not a Washburn, but that was the sweetest guitar I’ve ever heard or had the pleasure of playing.

Shortly after Toaster arrived, but before Ship got there, Squint noticed a missed call on his cell phone.  He thought it might be Ship and headed outside to call him.  The rest of us are sitting inside strumming a tune when Toaster’s phone rings.  He answers it, and it’s Squint.  â€œWhere are you?”  Toaster walks to the front door, gives him very explicit instructions, and when Squint looks through the window he says, “I’m right here.”

Every night Childbride and Babygirl would head out for a walk after things cooled down.  They found a horse “ranch” about three blocks from the house and took some pictures.  I’ll have to see if Babygirl can post a few for us.

And the FOOD!  Lunch was barbecue most days.  The second night Louis grilled up some steaks to die for.  Third night Childbride made us her bona fide Texas chili, and on the last day Squint took us for lunch to the Stratosphere (AWESOME), followed by some more of Childbride’s homemade cornbread to snack on that evening.

It was one of the best vacations I’ve ever had.  I hope that we can do it again, and I hope there will be a few more people who can join us next year.  Ship, Squint and Toaster, thank you for one helluva time.  I love you guys and I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

Definitely NOT boring me! I long for what I missed out on guys. I sure do hope next year will come quick and I can make it. What a time you had! and only 6 of you....sigh...shoulda been so many more, but sometimes the small start is for the best. YOu had friends by Forum that are now permanently blood brothers and sisters. I love hearing all about it. I would like if you all could, have each one of you post your side of the stories, all at once or in shorts burst either way. This WAGJAM thread will be going on a LOOONG time ! Keep em coming! [:D] I love the pics, love the slide show, and the collage and ...is it Toaster?...the guy who blends right in with the Official WAGJAM Flag when he sits in front of it wearing his tie died shirt lol. That villa looks like heaven compared to what was thought (by me) to be a group of hotel rooms set up together. NICE!

Thanks have to go out to Squint and to Shiner because truthfully, they did most of the heavy lifting and really kept the thing going during the planning stages.  I don't know if it was just luck or a well-thought-out plan, but the Villa couldn't have been better.  Have you ever seen a rental spot on the internet that looked great, but when you get there it's a lot smaller in real life?  Honestly, this place was much larger and cleaner and better equipped than I was expecting.  It was huge!  There were bedrooms that I don't think any of us even stepped foot in.  The bedrooms were classy, well-decorated, had cable tv in each, very comfy. Fancy vases and flowers everywhere... much nicer than a typical rental unit.  The location?  Four miles from the airport.  A 15 minute drive from the Strip.  The price?   Much lower than I would have expected.

If and when we plan Wagjam II - of course it's open to discussion, but I wouldn't hesitate to go to the exact same place.  I would also hope that whatever it was that nearly derailed this trip won't happen again.  It turned out to be exactly what it was always supposed to be:  A very unique group of people and their Washburns.  Good chemistry and positive vibes.  And damn if those guitars didn't sound great together!

Again, my personal thanks to Squint and Shiner for making the investment and making the commitment to work this all out.

Hey Shiner,,,

Agreed that you are not boring anyone.  It is a contact high and a lot of us, are Jonesing for more, in depth, info.

It makes me feel good to hear that you all enjoyed the time and the town and the guitars.  

I am also jealous that I was not able to rub that playing in front of folks, pimple, off of my own face.  It is still there but, unlike that Griffin kid, I have not named it.  Giggety-giggety,,,,

A missed opportunity for a lot of us and a special time for the folks who broke new ground.

Ideas come and go.  A rogue thought can gain mass and turn itself into something not perceived at the first attempt.  I still think fondly of the Dreadman, and will try to be at the next gathering if he is in attendance.

Now that I know squint is the sunglasses wearer.....it definately makes more sense with the moo pick guard....it all fits now...unlike Ships wife....mine would never let me go to vegas without her again LOL....last year for nationals she did not get to go as everyone we trusted to babysit was on the same team and all going to play so she had  to stay home with the girls.....and was not happy about it....but she loves to hear good guitar playing and she doesnt really get to hear any of that at our house LMAO.....If this is planned early enough you might get the Kazztic family next year.....

Hey y'all, glad my long winded post last night didn't bore y'all.  Let me follow up with a list of Shiner's T-Shirt slogans for Wagjam week:

Day one:  Hide the beer, Jesus is coming

Day two:  If you think my attitude stinks, you should smell my fingers!

Day three (Pike's favorite):  Jesus says, 'Don't be a dick!'

Day four (my personal favorite):  Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy--Benjamin Franklin

And on the last day for the flight back:  Kansas Dad (given to me when Baby Girl was in high school as her not so subtle way of telling me she wasn't coming to Texas to go to college, but that's ok, we love her anyway[:)])

Shiner wrote his chronologically…

So let’s try something a little different.

My first impression of my entire experience in Vegas began when we got to the villa.

The cab driver didn’t know where we were going, and thankfully Shiner had a map.

We drove into the place, and I was sent to knock at the door to make sure we had the right location.  I hadn’t gotten five feet from the cab before Squint came barreling out of the doorway, so utterly relieved, concerned [about our safety], and thrilled that we were there I immediately felt at home.  

I remember that the next day was like that as well; as people would arrive, everyone would go rushing out to greet them with hugs and excitement.  Everyone immediately clicked; we laughed and joked so much my face hurt.

We were like family.

============================================================

Mental vignettes:

Squint… the epitome of the Energizer Bunny.  Always accommodating, always thinking of what he could do to make the trip perfect for everyone… our driver for the week… hysterically funny.  He and BG playing pool sparring like she and her brother, making me laugh so hard I was crying…

Toaster… so patient, sweet… making the butcher paper hangings for the TV so all could play the same song together… such a genuinely white soul and honest person…  impromptu lyricist [giggle]… taught me new chords and a blues progression…  also always there to help with anything and everything that week.  

Louis… the sage… knew a little bit about a myriad of things… early riser and maker of coffee… always willing to share his knowledge of all things musical… friendly and genuine… fellow Chris Isaak fan… great tipper of both nations’ currencies to BG’s tip jar… extremely encouraging to everyone in their playing as well…

The utter joy of spending an entire week with my stepdaughter, going on walks… her petting the horses… getting caught up with what’s up in her world… singing and playing songs with her for the first time… Toaster sliding in like Tom Cruise to see what we were singing/playing and teaching him Gary Jules’ Mad World… watching her sing for Toaster and Squint and thinking she sings like an angel… the little Shinerfamily-ism phrases we coined over the week, she and I…

My husband… I thank him for a magical week I will never forget, one of friends becoming like family for us…

Ditto to everything CB said. It was so much fun and relaxing having the vacation turn out to be all about the people and not just the destination, that even I was surprised. It was obvious when I had to get back into work mode that this is something we'll juat HAVE to do again next year. No question!

I've been playing with custom pickguards again. NEXT year, we'll be fousing more on acoustic electrics and hollowbodies and what amps are best for your needs. I think everyone will be ready for that by then. Y'all learned so quickly, I was again amazed.

How's this look?

Well I finally got a vacation in after WAGJam,( actually more like a mini-honeymoon,25 years this year for me and the miss's)and wouldnt you know it I need another one.
Anyway for those who think that we should stop posting on WAGJam,too bad ,so sad, cause if you had been there you would really understand how some need to live vicariously through these adventures,as some mentioned their wifes would not be so understanding about them going and doing something that they are passionet about,so please for their sakes don't take this away from them.
And I know I will never tire of talking about it,love the trip and the experience, that it would be better than any concert I could play.Yes it really was that much fun, when you take those that can play and those that can't play as well but are willing to try and they learn while playing what more can we ask for.
I had fun, they had fun and it was an experience for all to have folks who never met in person but share a love for all Washies,which is what it is all about,so lets play them girls and boys and enjoy whatever people have to say.
Oh by the way what did I miss while I was gone?louis

I'm not sure where the Anyway for those who think that we should stop posting on WAGJam,too bad... came from, but I think most of us enjoy the photos and stories.  Personally I am not a Vegas guy and probably would have preferred another location, but I am happy for those that made the trip and envious of missing the opportunity of meeting everyone that attended.

My situation at the time of the event wasn't conducive to enjoying the event even if was held in my backyard.

I hope my situation to be different for the next one and I hope the time will allow for healing so that the core group, along with newer members and members that have yet to join, will be able to have a good time.

Decompression is important, as is the sharing.  I'm not a Vegas person, either, but then again, it sounds like being in Vegas had little to do with the experience.  Did someone mention the Great White North?

Having looked at the pictures and read the stories, I realize that now.  However, like I said, the timing just wasn't right.  Some how, some way, I will meet all or most of you.

I'm not slamming the location, just making a point.

Again, I am really happy everyone had a good time.  I'm looking forward to the opportunity to play with the group and learn a few things.  I am a breakfast kind of guy, so I am also looking forward to Louis making a great breakfast. - You do make breakfast don't you Louis?

Way to go Child Bride!  Good luck with the lessons.  By this time next year you'll be on a whole different level.  Head chef AND lead guitarist.  

Strum, I'm confident that things will calm down for you and we'll be seeing you at WG2.  Even if we have to have it in your back yard... not a bad idea!

Thanks for noticing John.  I'm in the process of making some gradual changes.  Yes, Alvarez got the boot.  I like their guitars but I can't afford to promote someone who's always out of stock of everything.  (speaking of stock... I have a bunch of Oscars that rolled in last week, and a shipload of D10's just hit US soil.  This is really good news for me, and for people who've been concerned about Washburn).   We're back in business!

Anyway, I added some new strings (D'Addario Flat Tops, Silk & Steel, Gypsy Jazz, the new EXP Classicals...  I'll be adding the Planet Waves HumidiPak in the next few days.

I'll be adding 3 new Breeds this week... drool material.  And I can't wait to add some new Washburns as soon as they become available.

More changes: The 3 magazines I advertise in have all just folded up their tents.  Play Guitar, Guitar World Acoustic, and Frets are all gone, so I'm looking for some new places to advertise.  Suggestions are always welcome, especially you folks in Canada.  Any good guitar mags up there?

Enough about me for now.  Thanks to everyone here for your support!

scheduling is a complicated issue with my work hours, but i'm truly hoping it comes together.  weekly 1/2 hour lessons, and he pushes the whole 'recording session' thing that you had talked about.  

letcha know how it works out... [:D]

Ship, my partner and I have traveled up north in the dead of winter, as well as in summer and fall.  You folks really know how to handle snowfalls up there, I'll say for sure.  One January we were in Montreal during a huge east-coast snowfall, and everything remained clear and passable.  But when we got back to Philly, nothing had been plowed.  Cars were either buried under several feet of snow or parked on top of mounds of compacted snow, and parking lots were covered with 6-10 inches of compacted snow and ice.  It was a mess for weeks!

Truth is, time is my biggest constraint.  Although I can work time off from my practice pretty readily (within reason), the farm has its own schedule that goes with the seasons, and our windows of opportunity are few.  That's probably why we travel up north most often in the winter!  But I do have one jam I make time for once a year, to gather with a handful of old, old friends (of about 35 years' duration) deep in the river valley of the Allegheny mountains, where no television or cell phone signals reach, for a long weekend of eatin', yakkin', pickin' and grinnin'.  Yeah . . .  [^]

There's a cabin with electricity and a phone line.  But it's a very looooong line, and I suspect that you'd not get even 56k dialup on it.  It's great to be unplugged for a few days -- like going home.

We're a gathering of old high school friends, a gang called the Cloud (guess why?), aged hippies who started our varied interests in music together.  We played in and out of bands together and taught each other our first chops.  Over the decades we drifted in our own directions, but our paths intersected regularly.  We've gotten together informally for several years, but more more steadily around end of summer for the past few years. Spouses and partners come along, too, and other family sometimes, too, so the number might be a dozen or so.  Kind of a Big Chill sorta thing.  As the years pass it becomes more imperative to connect.

Now Kazz, you know damn well the State Department has been on me for years to move out of the country.  And you're right, they won't let me back in.  There seems to be some belief that the national average IQ would be increased if I left.  Fortunately the powerful beer lobby has prevented them from just throwing me out.  Seems they're afraid they might go out of business.[:D]

I have no idea Toaster! I think he's an early incarnation. No playing with ties on. They got in my way. You can't see it very well, but that's a cowboy shirt with a button up bib. Very geeky, but hey, it was the 80's! (82 to be exact)

And yes, that is Steve Martin in my cab grille!

Yep, that's a drumstick. Played the reggae tom part AND the guitar parts at the same time.
Used the drum stick to tap the rhythm chords and the tip to tap out the lead notes on the fretboard.

If you've ever heard the song, you'd get it. I have no clue where I stole the idea, but it worked at the time... LOL!

Squint, I love the song.  Oh oh... catch that buzz.  Love is the drug I'm thinking of.
So what was the name of your band, and more importantly, show us some video!

Xtra Xtra! and there is video, but I have to figure out how to capture it from VHS. It was for our hit song, (and our bass player's video production class project), it's called 4 Inch Heels.

Maybe soon...

Dang Dreadman, he's got some of the greats. All the Bourgeois builts, including the very rare Paramount and the very rare Presentation, a Bourgeois built Savannah, all the Native Americans including a Bourgeois built Cherokee and the fairly rare Bourgeois built Apache, I believe he has one of everything from the '96 catalog (at least I know he was working towards that) and a whole bunch of others. I sold him my Cheyenne and pointed him to the Comanche I had at one time which he bought. He used to post pics of some of his collection on the other Washburn site, but I don't see them there anymore.

That is way cool to hear Squint,maybe the two of you will lite a fire under everybodies ass here,latley all I see is a bunch of Pansies whine and complain instead of getting down to business,which is playing their Washburns.
Glad to hear that you two are working hard at it,sometimes all it takes is watching someone play (or in this) sell a song and boom they are off to the races inspiring others to get working hard.
Not to take you off subject,but I havent had but a few folks who seem interseted in doing WAGJam 08 in Canada,what do you think about Washington State,at least the weather is decent in late spring or even Oregon on the WestCoast is really beautiful up and down the coastline,we should start planning fairly soon,as to start looking at possible bookings.I wouldnt mind for the rest of you animals out there to start piping in,and for those concerned about this fact I will be asking and hoping to get USMusic to do some promotional stuff with this.Such as photo's and maybe some recordings.
Also I ask now in advance to remember that this will be an adult(OK I know,adults?) orrientated Jam session,and some language maybe inappropriate.louis

Well, sure, why not?  The first WAGJam was only 2,500 miles from the east coast -- why not take it all the way out?

And not to cause a ruckus, but since you raised it: as for hoping to get USMusic to do some promotional stuff with this.Such as photo's and maybe some recordings -- why???  Don't the participants pay for their own travel fare, their own lodging, dinners and entertainment?  What would they get by giving away their performance and image rights?  T-shirts and ball-caps, emblazoned with corporate logos?  There was a time when I wouldn't even open my guitar case without a contract.  I'm not that much of a mercenary any more, but still . . .  It never ceases to amaze me how so many people would willingly stack things against themselves for a fleeting chance to make a fool of themselves on TV -- or maybe appear in an advertisement in Acoustic Guitar magazine.  That's what modeling agencies are for.  If WAGJam is a gathering of friends, let it remain among friends.  Don't confuse the dealer as your friend.  (Dave excepted, of course -- 'cause he ALSO uses what he deals!)  

Sure, I can hear someone saying already, Well, what about this forum -- USMusic provides this forum for us to use for free.  I thought that too, until I realized that the activity on this forum drives traffic to Washburn's website, through countless external links, references and straight-up search engine listings.  It's not like USENET; the forum will remain as long as it remains cost-effective and profitable, and no longer.

Not pointing any fingers, just expressing a frustration and an observation: angling for something always takes you off course.  No hard feelings?

 Maybe... maybe not.
It's really not always about money.

I don't know if we should really go down this road again but I'll try to sum up how I see it.  About a year ago, we had something really special here.  This was a community that many others could have taken lessons from.

Technically, we might have only been strangers on the internet, but in a very real way, we would get things done.  We would support each other; we would buy gifts for fellow members if someone was in need.  We would take up collections for people and for causes as they came up.  I felt as though we were on the brink of launching a legitimate not-for-profit organization aimed at getting guitars into the hands of needy kids.  

Washburn gave us this forum, and they were also a part of it.  It was never us against them.  After a while the idea of getting together in person seemed natural.  Why would we want to leave them out?  And in the spirit of being decent to one another, why would we not want them to benefit from that?    Granted, it's not like they are dying to get our ugly mugs on their website (yechh... why would they?).  

From what I know, the people at Washburn are all decent people.  I don't look at them as the big bad corporation; I look at them as people.  The way I see it, Wagjam includes Washburn, it celebrates our friendship with each other, and with Washburn and their guitars.  Those of you who don't like it - then have your own event.  But don't promote it here, and don't name it after Washburn.

Kris, I'll respect your opinion and I hope you will respect mine.

Well this has to be the most pompous and arrogant statement I have heard in a long long time. And you have the authority to speak for Washburn or tell everyone on this forum what it is that they can or cannot do? What would ever make you think that you have that right? What, are you kidding? Who do you think you are? If there are others here that want to have a get together and play their Washburns and want to call it a Washburn guitar get together, and want to discuss it on this forum, by all means do, you have every right. And speaking solely for me Dave, don't ever again try to tell me what it is that I can and cannot do. I'll do whatever the hell I want to do as long as it brings no harm to others, and if you, or any like you, don't like it, you know what you can do with it.

Actually, you're right.  The 'don't promote it here' comment was wrong. Promote whatever you want.   I guess what I meant was that having an anti-Washburn session here is wrong.  Calling it a Washburn event while putting them down is wrong.

As for how Wagjam goes down, all it would have taken is a hundred bucks and anyone could have had a say.  For the people who want to tell us whether Washburn should be invited: either put up or shut up.

No hard feeling are felt Kris,but why confuse the issue,you don't like corporate sponsership,don't attend.As for why I suggested it was so as to not have to drag recording devices with me or anyone else.
Also as Toaster has pointed out the folks that work there are just folks like us, and least we forget they also play Washburns,so please for WAGJam 08 lets not confuse the issue if you have a problem with them benefitting from our gathering,please do not attend and voice your opinions as I feel that you have everyright to your opinions as a fellow Washburner,but hey for those of us trying to organize something ,well I see it as those who want to attend and those who don't,and then you miss out on meeting some fellow players that could potentionally become some of your best friends, or maybe you dont need new ones,but hey I can always use some more and the more new folks I play with makes me a better person and player.
And please for the rest of you stop taking words and peoples thoughts and attacking what they say,this is still about folks getting together and playing music,so why try and start another fight.louis

OK, I had a pretty nasty post here, and I edited it 5 times to make it nicer, but each time it got worse.  Then I read what Ship said about just getting along and he is right.

Thanks Ship.

Sorry louis, another person tells me what it is that I can do and cannot do, they're gonna hear about it. It has nothing to do with starting a fight. You want to be a sheep, that's your perogative. As for me, I wasn't born to follow.

Geez, I thought we put this behind us, but apparently not.  I don't get the need to justify or debate the event and the rules.  There will NEVER be a single event that will even come close to resembling the original idea.  In addition to the difficulty of selecting an agreeable location, an agreeable time, no one here will even come close to compromising on a format.

I'm not sure why this argument continues.

WAGJAM is destined for extinction.  You may have gatherings, but you are fooling yourselves if you call it WAGJAM.

Just my 2 cents.

There's no argument continuing Strum, actually no arguement at all. Just asinine statements that need to be exposed for what they are. I see you're one step closer to playing fingerstyle, hey man, good for you! (too bad for the Cavs though).

There's more good points being said than there are asinine statements, unfortunately the good points aren't agreeable points, but that's a democracy.

Hey thanks for the website and the Cavs are on the ropes and surely are near the end.  The local news (I'm watching it now) and people are holding out hope.  Then there's the reporters that are badmouthing the Cavs - the way I look at it is 1) they still have a shot, although very slight.  2) At the beginning of the season no one expected them to be in the Finals.  Get a couple of good players and eliminate the opponent putting three players on one player and you never know what might happen next year.

I've been busy with work and haven't had a whole lot of time to practice.  I had visitors in from California Monday and Tuesday and I have another visitor coming in from Florida tomorrow.  A lot of meetings, lunches and dinner (not my thing).

I might hold StrumJam and we can conference call with audio and video.

This is interesting for me to observe, and I can't help adding a few observations.  When I first started lurking around the forum I remeber seeing discussions about a get-together, and I remember thinking, Man, how cool is this?  A bunch of people who only know each other in a remote, abstract way, which wasn't even possible 10 or so years ago, getting together to share music and their appreciation for the brand they like.  It seemed to me to be among the coolest internet experiences possible.  I remeber reading twists and bumps along the way as folks made it happen.  

It seems to me the participants were determined to overcome all deterents and work it out, and it seems as though those folks had the time of their lives as a result.  Their dilligence paid off, and good for them for that.  So, if another gathering happens, who cares where it is or what you call it?  Just make it happen.  And If Washburn wants to throw in a few trinkets, or not, who cares?  

Finally, I think Washburn really missed the boat by not loading up a truck with pototype guitars they hope to introduce soon and letting a bunch of already loyal customers play them for a week.  If that had  happened, the chatter on this forum now and for some time to come would be about how we can't wait to get our hands on this, that, or the other new Washburn.

Believe me, Pike and Strum no one is telling you you can't be jerks.

Knock yourselves out.

As long as I am around, there will be a WAGJAM. Don't like it? Whine and make all the asinine statements you want.

Your opinion is worth nothing if you're not supporting it and as we've already seen, WAGJAM will happen no matter how much you, or anyone else whines.

Hate it for ya. The only thing destined for extinction are your negative attitudes.

I'm done with you idiots who think you know anything about peformance rights or even basic capitalism. I'd be happy to have my agent explain it to you, but you're really not worth the $300/hr it would cost. You might want to try a self-help book or something that teaches you how to play well with others.

I'll see everyone I want to see at WAGJAM '08.

Thank you all for your fine points and I appreciate the fact that everybody understand if USMusic decides to join our group,well I have no problem,and if they use it as advertisment I have no problem,and for those of you who do have a problem with them profiting from us,well is that what this forum does also because we do keeping buying their products and when they get the kinks out for their new Bluegrass model,well you know the Ship of Fools is all over that one.
But please I only ask that we not make things or take things personal,I am sure that when we responde in a negetive way we reduce ourselfs as Washburn lovers who can't get along.
We can't always agree,I know some of you have seen some of my explosions, and for that I am sorry,but we can't always see eye to eye,but that is not an excuse to blow off steam at each other.
My whole point was to try and gather more folks for the next and I have invited Mike along because there are songs that would be absloutley fantastic to have a madoline player along to and he also plays acoustics,so I thought it would be nice to meet the guy who keeps us alive here,he could have washed his hands many times and just said pull the plug on the forum,you don't pay me enough,so please if you can contribute, do so, but lets keep our personalities seperate and we will get this puppy off to a better start, and garner some life time friendships from it.Again Please I can't do this with-out you all and I need the forum to be together on this and Strum you are right,but because I have the bull by the horn I will decide when and where just so we get somnething started and finished and if it happens to exclude some folks from attending,well WAGJam 09 is open to anybody who wants to otrganize the one after.louis,.......so for those of you who respect me and my kind words to all of you I ask thsat you contribute in a positive way and lets keep the friendships.[:D]

I'm one of the people that had no objection to Washburn's participation, but I respect the opposite viewpoint.  It will remain a stumbling block and I'm not sure if a compromise is possible.

As for Washburn's opportunity, they certainly can send prototype guitars to forum members.  There are some knowledgeable people here that can review the guitars and there are people here that make it a point to try to sell Washburn guitars to potential new members when they log on to the forum.  Bottom line, Washburn doesn't have to wait for a gathering, one already exists right here [;)][;)][;)]

Ok Squint, one last post and then you can post all the f*****g trash that you want.  Don't give me any more of the comments about acting like a child or a jerk, because at no time did I make a personal attack.  I commented about how the group will never come to a consensus because of the unwillingness to compromise and you are a perfect example of that.

If anyone here wants to follow your lead, let them go right ahead, I just hope their opinion doesn't stray too far from yours because they just witnessed the classless performance you are able to display.

Oh, congrats on having an agent, I didn't realize the pick guards that you have SOMEONE else make were selling so well.

Well, that's probably what will happen anyhow, for reasons other than the meager sponsorship.  And I would certainly hope that there are employees of USMusic who love playing the instruments they market, but they aren't really the corporation, are they?  They're just people like you and me, who have their own thoughts on a number of subjects.  And other than Browndog, I'm not sure I've seen any regular members of the forum who admit to being employees.  Of course, that may be for the same reason I tell people I casually meet at gatherings that I own a farm rather than a law office: if they know you're a lawyer, they're sure to have a legal problem that you could surely advise them on.  For free, of course.  Hmmmm . . . maybe I am just a mercenary at heart.  [;)]

What would they get by giving away their performance and image rights?

WHERE did this idea come from???!!! I would think it would be a personal decision what one does with their rights. Why are you assuming Washburn would be taking advantage of that?

The only thing I'm angling for is a good time with great Washburn guitars and great Washburn friends.

Nothing more, nothing less.

This reminds me of an old western where the two cowbows are in the middle of a old town and one is like this town aint big enough for the both of us

Maybe we can put a National Wagjam aside and have regional and UK, Canada, Germany, and Australia (and everywhere else i forgot) ones for a bit. And whether we would feel comfortable with USmusic to participate, should be decided by a vote. And no one is restrained to a particular regional, but don't be little kids and fly from Maine to California, just because you disagree with the sponsorship- and then come back on the forum and whine and the bill.

And those who hate the idea of wagjam or any other kind of gathering- theres nothing wrong with wanting to heep the relationship on a online level, just don't impart and coerce your views onto other people. Noone wants an Anti-wagjam crusade.

Cahmannnnnnn. Can yall not fall out? Thanks

Oh what the hell, one more.

Calling people idiots, jerks and whatever other words you choose is a great way of showing your desire for a good time.

You know Squint you are too stupid to realize you've already displayed your true motive and true colors.

You're wasting your time back peddling now, unless you want to delete all your post to make it look like you are innocent of all accusations, but I think enough people have read your crap.

Squint, for the last f*****g time, stop with your twisting.  1) I supported WAGjam. 2) I supported Washburns involvement.  My statement was clearly in regard to the fact that the forum members are never going to agree on a time, location and a format.  Now the fact that I don't support Squint's Summer Vacation just pisses you off.

I am growing real tired of you twisting my words and portraying them for something they weren't.  Now we go back to you immediately resorting to the name calling and twist it that I somehow started this by making an observation.  It's unfortunate that is the direction that you took.

HEY ok! Everyone enjoys/can tolerate the idea of wagjam! And we can deliberate on the presence of USmusic and location in a civil manner. OF VOTING?

I mean, no one's logic will be totally understood by another. thats what the entire premodern movement is built upon. SO. We can be stuck in circumlocution OR have a democratic (in the real sense of the word) vote.

Of course theres a possibility that some regions will be underrepresented and ignored. To solve this, I already suggested it in my above post- have regional wagjams for now.

SO. lets end the bashing yeah? Hehehe at the frat house, when 2 brothers have a disagreement, we don boxing gloves and duke it out. Do we have to resort to such primitive actions?

Thats horrible. I dont think Dave is arrogant and dishonest. The exact opposite actually. He wasnt very vocal about this guitar playing abilities, but apparently he had everyone at wagjam impressed. And as for dishonest- Hes like the only honest guitar dealer left! every shop I go to I get to deal with a pratty kid or some ex stoner hippie thats probably still tripping, try to sell me guitars theyre evidently never even heard of.

I think that it would be prudent to forget this for today and just sleep on it. If you guys still feel like slitting throats tomorrow... ill be more than happy to do it for you, right after im done with magoo's friend that thinks washburns are only good for beaters.

Just following up with Ship's statement: for those concerned about this fact I will be asking and hoping to get USMusic to do some promotional stuff with this.Such as photo's and maybe some recordings.  I simply asked why?

Squint, none of this was about you.  You need to detach, man -- you have WAY too much emotional investment in this thing.  Like you said, it's just some on-line friends having a good time getting together to play guitar.  Not the second coming of christ.

Pike, Toaster and Dreadman if you are out there - just to put this in perspective, we are arguing over wagjam, coorporate involvement and whatever else and while we do this, our brothers, sisters, daughters and sons are on the other side of the world fighting a war.

What we are arguing about isn't that important (I'm also directing this at myself), maybe a good nights sleep and a prayer or thoughts for those fighting a real war might be in order right about now.

Good night and peace.

Sorry Kris, but I'll be the judge of that. When someone declares Wagjam extinct or tries to tell me what I should or shouldn't post, then they're going to get some feedback.

And I can't even get mad at Strum since he cracks me up too!
But my questions and comments still stand.  

Everyone should know that as grownups, we can disagree and still be friends. It's not the end of the world.

Except for Pike, it seems...

You really need to stop telling everyone what to post, Pike. You're not even making sense now. Calling Dave a liar?? WTF? Everybody knows that Dave is spot on about the idiotic actions of certain people who shall remain nameless, and since you can't even back up your own vitriol, you're just coming off as WAY creepy and certainly not interested in the fellowship on the forum. And if I'm wrong in this assessment, then prove me wrong and buy a frikken CLUE. You're the FIRST to bitch about other people trying to stop you from posting your mind by telling THEM what to post. Again, WTF? You're also the first to start personally attacking people and then whine about people knowing anything about you. Everything Dave said is based entirely on your posts. You don't like how people are responding to your posts? Then that should be clue, but it won't matter because it's ALL ABOUT YOU, isn't it?

Guess what, you're wrong again, Pike. Your bleating proves it.
Therapy of some sort may help but I doubt it. Your mean-spirited rhetoric is what prevents us from just forgetting about this. The fact that you obviously have no respect for anyone who states a fact that you don't like, is not the best way to get along in a forum, but that doesn't seem to matter to you, does it?

I'd be disappointed in you if I didn't already expect your childish behavior since I've seen it too many times.

Like I said, you want to be a jerk? I won't stop you. You want to claim to speak for everyone? Go ahead. You want to call people liars without proof? Be my guest.

Maybe you should do a little helmet shopping yourself...

Seriously...I make a living deconstructing dialogue and conversations and I can clearly say one thing...Pike, you like to stir things up.  That may be good; it may be bad.  Usually, though, it does more harm than good.

Feel free to take shots at me now.  I'm just calling it like I see it.

And yes I can point to the exact post that started it all and sent this particular thread into a hole of anger and resentment and half-cocked statements, but frankly I'm too tired to take the extra step.  Anyone reading through the last three pages with an objective mind will see it.

But I'm not picking on Pike.  There's a whole lot of immaturity from a lot of people I used to respect going on here.  Oh well, we're only human.  I'm sure I'll say something to piss someone off soon enough.

Nope, don't need Susie or anybody to be anything or anybody. You should at least know that about me by now Toaster. Being an ass? Nah, it's telling it like it is and you not being able to handle it. You can keep shoveling it on Toaster but you're just spinning your tires. You should go get some sleep, it's way past your bedtime.

Well, at least now we all know who the REAL liar is...

Here's how it works, Pike. You make an assertion, YOU back it up.

dreadful idiot is an accurately descriptive term.

YOU accused Dave of lying. YOU have not proven your assertion.
Therefore, you are what you accuse others of being.

Well this has to be the most pompous and arrogant statement I have heard in a long long time. And you have the authority to speak for Washburn or tell everyone on this forum what it is that they can or cannot do? What would ever make you think that you have that right? What, are you kidding? Who do you think you are? If there are others here that want to have a get together and play their Washburns and want to call it a Washburn guitar get together, and want to discuss it on this forum, by all means do, you have every right. And speaking solely for me Dave, don't ever again try to tell me what it is that I can and cannot do. I'll do whatever the hell I want to do as long as it brings no harm to others, and if you, or any like you, don't like it, you know what you can do with it.



This is exactly what I'm talking about.  This whole thread was moving along just fine for 12 pages and then KrisH mentions USMusic support for the next Wagjam and you flip out.

Sticking up for yourself and your rights is one thing, calling people arrogant and pompous, using an extremely condescending tone and ending by telling people to stick it does not constitute doing no harm.

That's like me standing in front of your house drinking a beer and calling you names.  I'm not hurting anyone, but I sure am asking for trouble.  You clearly started this little dust up, man.  I'm not saying others didn't come along and do their part to escalate matters, but you started the name calling.  The thing is I knew it was coming.  I read KrisH's post and winced.  I knew you would take it personally, because I know the the history of Wagjam and previous discussions of corporate involvement.  So, you were right on cue, which makes it predicatable.

I wore a uniform for seven years defending everyone's rights but noone has the right to be a jerk.  If someone insults me, even if they are doing so while defending their rights, that person will hear about it...that's my right.  But if we (Americans, Humans, etc) all stopped demanding our individual rights and thought a litte more about the rights of the community, of the society, of the world outside our own, it would seem things would be much nicer for all of us.

Nope, wrong. That has nothing to do with it. Where did that come from John? I don't care one way or the other about wagjam or whether or not US music has anything to do with it or not. I stood up to Toasters arrogant and condescending remark, and I started it? Huh? So, what, Toaster has the right to tell us what it is that we can and cannot do?

hey fellas. seems to be getting a bit out of hand no? bringing wives into the ordeal. I was sleeping peacefully listening to pavarotti sing nessun dorma in my dreams when i remembered the forum and sure enough. bickering past your bed times. this will never end so can ewe just accept differences in personalities and move on to constructive topics? for example strings?

where will any of this go? honestly, do you think that online words will leave one of us crying in the bathtub? (well.... i did... only once though... ROCKET WAS MEAN!! hahha) Unless youre zinedine zidane, then, you can send an e-headbutts to eachother.

I mean. sure bashing eachother is good exercise for your brain I suppose. You develop, organize, promulgate your logos. But when pathos obstructs what youre saying... its pretty useless.

SO can we drop the personality clashes and get jiggy with it? comonnn. will smith, sister sledge... the whole gang?

Keep it in context Squint. Yes, I stood up to that. Nothing proud about it, just a fact, just the right thing to do. And what does it reveal Squint? Nothing, not a freaking thing. You, on the other hand crawled up his butt. What's that say about you Squint? And no, you don't tell me how it works, on this forum or anywhere. You want to try that, then get your butt on a plane, get up here and tell me face to face. Till then, it's all just more of your BS. But we both know that ain't never gonna happen.

Well, it looks like things settled down after I left (not).

This will probably have no factor one way or the other, but I feel compelled to state it.

It is very true that this site had (and that could continue) to have something very special as compared to other forums.  I consider a number of you the foundation of the forum and I think the members that have joined in the past few months bring a lot to the forum.

Although I've never met a single person here, I am somewhat saddened by the turn of events.  I respect so many of you and the divide is so damaging to the forum.  A lot of us contributed either directly or indirectly to this and we continue this argument over something that really has no right or wrong.  The comments should be limited to opinion and not name calling.  

I got pulled, no I should say I willingly walked into that when the whole thing started months ago. I regret the result of the argument that I had with Dreadman.  I still stand by my opinion of the event, but I could have handled it better when it came to discussing it or debating it with Dreadman or anyone else on the forum.  I was admittedly very pissed off and went from opinion, to defense and finally offense.

Anyway this is the part that I assume everyone will blow off, but I hope that we can resolve these issues, clarify things off-line and move on.  Again, you are a great bunch of people and I don't want to see this split forum again.

I never thought I would say this, but does anyone want to talk strings?

A little rambling, but hopefully you get the message.

An assumption Squint, unless of course you are speaking for your own behavior, which would certainly classify as well as any as silly. If it is me you are trying to refer to, I am holding no grudges.

Exvol,  I think Browndog gives us a longer leash than some mods would.  But disagreements aren't always bad things; maybe some good can come out of this.  There are rules, and we probably came pretty close to the edge but never really broke them.  There's definately no rule that says we have to be nice to each other or agree all the time.

I know it doesn't make for the best reading, but it's not that bad.  I've seen worse and over things that are much more petty than this.  In the end (hopefully soon) everyone will be back to normal discussions.  I do like the fact that people can and do disagree.  At times it seems like people here are falling over each other so as not to rock the boat.

When I first joined this forum there would be people complaining about people like Drake and a few others.  Even took there complaints to the moderator.  I see this place no different than I see a radio or TV, if you don't like the thread, don't read it.  It's not like this is the only thread on the site.

I don't take offense to your objection, but I thinking telling the teacher is a bit drastic.

Squint,

I'm not ignoring this, I must have missed it last night when I was on.

I don't think we owe each other an apology and I certainly don't expect one from you.  It was a spat, nothing more.  

It seems like apologies on this forum tend to come with conditions and causes the problem to go on (and on and on...)

So, no apology needed - what happened, happened and we just have to live with it.

Toaster,

I know that disagreements aren't always bad, but it seemed to me that the badmouthing and put downs should have been taken offline.  I know that the mods have a lot more to do than to police these forums, and I am glad that they don't over police them.  I am a bit suprised that the mods have been completely silent though.  Many people stumble across these forums and to read such childish bickering coming from adults over an event that Washburn had a hand in seems bad for business.

Strum,

I got a laugh out of your tell the teacher comment. It made me remember my elementary school days when the worst thing that could happen is that somebody would tell the teacher, or say you're getting told on.[:)]  Then out came the big wooden paddle with holes drilled in for extra aerodynamics. [:D]  

All that said, I still love this forum and have learned a lot here.  I hate that some have left.

But to call us all fools and try to narc us out to Browndog because we don't fit into your little box of what you suppose reality to be, sorry exvol, that just doesn't work. Oh, and by commenting, you yourself are only adding to your own idea of foolishness. Kinda like the pot calling the kettle black, wouldn't you say.

Strum,

I got a laugh out of your tell the teacher comment. It made me remember my elementary school days when the worst thing that could happen is that somebody would tell the teacher, or say you're getting told on.[:)]  Then out came the big wooden paddle with holes drilled in for extra aerodynamics.

All that said, I still love this forum and have learned a lot here.  I hate that some have left.

I am reminded of the saying, a nod is as good as a wink, to a blind horse.  Possibly a Rod Stewart Album.

This must have been a varsity scrimmage, as a lot of the players on the other teams, did not compete.

Just want you all to know, that I came here about a year ago, trying to get info on a Wash 12 string, that I was interested in selling.  Needed to find out what it was worth?  Ended up falling head over heels, into a guitar passion and camraderie that ended up, with me keeping the 12 string and buying three more washburn guitars.

I have met superior personalities and some very funny people.  Some of them are women.  I would not trade the time spent here, as I have learned more in this year,about guitars, than in the previous forty.  

This forum has allowed me to grow with it's information.  I know things that I did not know counted, humidity being one of them.  I can do set ups on my guitars.  I am sanding saddles and checking intonation like I know what I am doing.  I am becoming more, thanks to your generousity.

I thank all of you for the kindness given and taken.  

Steve

I was thinking about this whole thing and the last couple of post made me realize something.

Did the Vegas group get together because they all play Washburn? - No
Did they get together because they wanted a gambling junket - No
Did they get together because at least one of them may have overstayed their welcome in Texas? - No well let's put that in the maybe column.
Did the original idea begin for any of the above reasons? - No

This whole thing started because one or two people had the idea it would really be great to figure out a way to meet members of the group that they had bonded with. Not because they played Washburns, it was because they played guitar and the desire to jam.

Logistics made the idea of a big session damn near impossible.  The people in UK weren't going to show up, the people in Australia weren't going to show up.  The people on the opposite side of the US would have difficulty showing up.

Now we seem to be focused more on the name, who is welcome to attend, and who is in charge and screw ya if you have difficulty with the cost.  Oh and there's the - You can't have the one in 08 because someone else is having next years, but you are welcome to 09.

Let's get back to why we were having the event in the first place - it was to meet people and just play guitars - any brand guitar.  Since logistics is a big stumbling block, I suggest to those that want to get together, do so with others in your region, JUST DO IT.

Get back to the true reason we started all this.

Oh and ship, not to burst your bubble, but last Tuesday I applied for trademark rights to wagjam.  Keep using it buddy because you are going to line my pockets with dead presidents.[:D][:D][:D]

For you out-of-towner's - dead Presidents appear on all of our paper currency.

And one last thing - the community is right here - not at some resort or cabin or villa.

Strum, you put all this very well as the meeting of the bodies to the minds we have come to know here. I agree with Steve and Cal, I have learned more here in my 3 months than I ever knew I needed, in order to take good care of my babies and even make some alterations, which I am breaking into very slowly, with things I heard right here. I can say that I have now changed the tuning machines on 2 old classical guitars, and shaped and refit the elephant tusk (edit)saddle(edit) I have on one of those. It was sitting too high, I could see room for improvement, the tuners were rusty and either tight or too loose to turn. I found some great looking tuners and with the gleaning of everyone's collective knowledge I made a real nice 60 year old guitar into a classy looking and lower action/better playing sweet sounding child of mine...all thanks to this forum. I am even going to add Abalone side dots to her when they get here [:)] The forum is not an object...it is the people in it that make it happen. Anyone can and with the willingness, get together in whatever region you are in, if the desire to do so is there. It does not have to be just a yearly thing/WAGJAM only/Washburn sponsored gathering. People are people and getting to see and hug those you learned to care about supercedes all else. Thanks to everyone here [:D] And thanks, strummy..for not sending those matches too quickly [8D]

Hmm.  Its a bit like when NBC or whoever trademaked the phrase superbowl. im sorry strum, i know that the trademarking is for your own benefit, but im slightly disappointed/ weirded out. But if you did get the phrase wagjam trademarked, then every time someone used it (with or without your permission) then they would have to pay?  maybe im just not used to people trademarking, but it seems like crummy capitalism. You can argue that american economy was built upon it, but that doesnt make it any better. Its still a pretty cloying move. I may be the only one not congratulating you on your purchase, and im sorry, but if trademarking is what I think it is, sounds a bit grimy man.

I hate people who drive Porsches. not only does it announce to the world that your johnson is the size of a peanut, but youll also probably be driving a boxter- not a 911. so in combination, it yells out i have a huge gut that makes it hard to see my small wanger and my life hasnt been as profitable as i wanted it to be, but i'll buy one anyway and wear douchebag-sunglasses because i think it will make me look cool. buncha scum bag sleeze balls.

John, what's your major?

As for done - I'm done with the subject, I'm just here to have fun.

I told you to look it up because I've only applied, I didn't study all the rights of what the registered trade mark offers.  I know it cannot be used by anyone without the approval..., I know if it was something of value it could make me a lot of money.  I know it cost me money to apply ($335), I know as of right now I have no legal right to prevent anyone from using it.  I know I could apply for Wagjam, but I could not use the original meaning with the word Washburn, so it became...(confidential).

There's a lot of crap to know about it and that is why I said look it up.

Why are you being so aggressive?  Do you want to fight?  Are you looking for a verbal battle?  Geez John, can't a guy just be tired.

Well I think it's a great profession and I wish you the best in your pursuit.

I went to a psychologist not too long ago and the waiting room was abnormally crowded and when I was called to come in I was walking down the hall with the psychologist (out of hearing distance from the waiting room) and I said Man, it's like a scene out of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest out there.  He didn't see the humor in my statement, or he hid it and told all his friends later that night.

That brings up the old question:
What's the difference between a Porsche and a porcupine?

Wow. As some of you may have read in another thread I've been away for almost a week. When I saw how big this thread has grown I figured something really fun was going on - then I realized it was another feud. It sounded like the same old thing and I was about to close the thread just as I noticed Dave had taken the opportunity to give me a good slamming when I wasn't here to defend myself. (cowardly move to recover some of the status he lost when I semi-outed his disgusting way of manipulating people a while ago)

Like a lot of people I was sucked in by Dave's act early on (trust me, it's an act and I'll explain in great detail later) and I promoted him and his business freely on the forum. Somewhere around six months ago I gradually started to see his other face and it just kept getting worse. I wanted to warn everybody but there are so many that he's charmed I figured they just wouldn't hear it so I kept my mouth shut. Well Dave - you've picked the wrong person to try to put the heat on......... I bet you thought I was gone from the forum forever, huh? Well I'm back you two faced snake and I want everyone to look for my upcoming thread all about you.............

Dreadman,  Am I cowardly for posting while you're out of town?  As if I know when you're out of town! See, there's your first twist.  Truly I wish you had been around for all of this so we wouldn't have to open up this thing again.  

Post whatever you want.  On a personal level and on a business level, I have nothing to hide.  As a forum member I'm pretty much an open book.  As for our Wagjam feud - it's all been said a million times.

So go ahead and say what you will.  In fact, since you weren't around to defend yourself I'll step back and let you have the floor and I won't even respond.  That is, as long as long as you tell the truth.

You're a good man Dave.  Dread is too... but he and I disagree on many things.  This whole WAGJAM thing being one of them.  I am amazed that people are still arguing over it all, and that it has morphed into this slugfest.  I love you guys... and yes, you can have my Bud Light.

OK. I think we've had enough of this. [:(!]
I really wish I had more time to police this forum but frankly it's at the bottom of my list of responsbilities. I do what I can and I generally rely on you guys to police yourselves. You do a pretty good job of it most of the time but obviously there's been some ill-will festering for some time now. If you have a problem with someone, keep it to yourself or take it offline. This is not the place to air your personal differences.

I've already had requests from a couple of long time memberrs to have their screenname's etc removed becaue they are tired of the bickering. I don't really want to do that and I hope that after a few days they will reconsider.

That being said, I am locking down this topic. As I said, if you want to discuss your differences with someone, do it off line.
