I like jammin with a drummer, but have no skills on the sticks myself…
As a side note, I mentioned I am going to the Gearfest to Peter Stephen (the luthier at Lyttelton) and he seemed open to the idea of hosting one at his workshop, maybe next year? He builds acoustic things but also makes electrics…so maybe an acoustic themed Gearfest next year??

I'm flexible on timing, what suits most people? lunch into the afternoon? or morning into lunch?

I'm a long way from clearing out to make space so I've got a busy few evenings coming up. In fact the time I'd earmarked for tidying up has been spent loading vinyl into the Discogs database.


As for practice... I think I need inspiration! I think that might be an interesting conversation for the day...
