I thought I'd start a discussion with some tips and tricks I've picked up from attending previous Resosummits. Please add your advice and experience as you like.
- Talk to everybody! I haven't been bitten once at Resosummit.
- Stay hydrated. There will be water machines in the lobby and elsewhere.
- If you need a break, there are plenty of dining options a very short walk away. I like the San Antonio Taco Company because it's fast and cheap. The Mellow Mushroom has good pizza.
- Diagonally across the street from the Station Inn is the Turnip Truck Natural Market, sort of a Whole Foods type grocery and deli. They have very good food and are a good choice for a fast meal before the Station Inn (unless you prefer the pizza at the Station Inn). There's also a frozen yogurt shop in that same complex.
I am pleased to announce the release of the first four lessons in my Download Lesson Series. Here is a sample of Salt Creek. Included in the download is a HD Video, TAB, MP3 of the performance and Jam Tracks (real instruments, not band in a box). I'll be posting more lessons every month.

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.read more »
Had the pleasure of seeing Mike with Peter Rowan's Band at the Longford Banjo Festival last Saturday. Great gig and really helpful workshop with Mike earlier in the day. If they come your way dont miss them.
