A Future Picker? Music in Families - a query

So, three things inspired this little forum post -1) the joy of seeing the Booth clan play in Anchroage last week (Greg on pedal steel, Dan on guitar, Mandy on bass, and Dan and Mandy's signifcnat others on fiddle and drums), and 2) the post Greg just put up re: Mike Auldridge tribute and 3) this picture attached.

Finn Pickin

The other day, I was playing in the living room. My son Finn who is 21 months old grabbed a spare finger pick (sure it is losely hanging on this finger), grabbed his toy banjo and started trying to imitate me. Also last night at band practice, Finn grabbed his new harmonica and walked in the room and started blowing on it joining the fun with giggles between each blow on the harp. He also loves to count songs to start - "one, two, one two free."

Home for Christmas, I teamed up with my son Dan again to make a dobro and bass duet of this classic Christmas melody. I love hearing the bass bowed. I couldn't decide what key to play it in, so I tried several. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

Tab files from my ResoSummit classes

Hi everyone, I just got back home to Alaska last night from RS and a short tour with the Kathy Kallick Band. It was a super trip and with Thanksgiving almost here I realize I have a lot to be thankful for, much of it I owe to the dobro.Smile

Anyway, during my ResoSummit classes I took a list of email addresses from folks so I could send them files of the class material handouts. I sent out a lot of emails but some of them bounced back. I hope to have a website up sometime this winter but until then, if anybody who was in a class and wants but didn't get the files, PM me here and I'll get those out to you.

Happy Thanksgiving!

ResoSummit highlights & thanks

Hard to believe that ResoSummit 2012 is over.

Highights for me:
All the Station Inn shows -- I'm still hopeful that 100% of my hearing will return from that killer show by Randy Kohrs, Jack Pearson & Friends. Randy was definitely on fire, and it's always great to see/hear Josh Shilling on keys & vocals. Jack Pearson was unbelievable. Monroeville was high-octane bluegrass, and it was great to present them in their Station Inn debut. And as for that performance by Rob Ickes and Jim Hurst -- well, there are no words in the English language adequate to describe that phenomenal performance.

The closing faculty performance -- loved it all, and it was a beautiful thing to have Michael Witcher's gorgeous take on Roxanna Waltz as the last song of ResoSummit 2012.
