GUEST,Big Red Old Folkers (44) RE: Old Folkers 03 Dec 00

I fell in love with folk during the folk "scare" of the 50's & 60's. While I ahve no instrumental talent, I have been strumming my guitar ever since. In the old days we ahd a trio (like everyone else) but went our seperate ways. While the other two guys gave up the music, I stayed with it. Last Jan. we got together again for the first time in over thirty years and it was a blast. We did it again in Sept and plan to do it several times next year and maybe even go on stage. Over the years I found (and still find) that to sit and play and sing is the greatest release in the world for me. While I stay with the stuff from my day, it never ceases to comfort me. I am now collecting records that I couldn't afford back then. (See my thread on lesser known folk groups) I love the Mudcat and have learned much from it. I recently started a thread on buying a guitar and was advised that not many old Gibsons are beyond salvation. I took mine in to a good luthier and it is again a wonderful instrument for a lot less money. Thank you Mudcatters. Stay with it. It's good for the soul! Mudcat has livened me up enough so that I am even considering taking guitar lessons so that I will be able to more than one simple strum with my right hand. Who know's, I could even becopme passable, even in my old age.
