Good to hear from you, Roy (Burl)! Caroline and I are hoping we can see you when you come back to the states next year. Didn't I see some notice somewhere about you getting out to the left coast of the States soon? If you do, be sure to post your schedule to the kids here on the Mudcat. Us old folk farts are obligated to keep 'em up to snuff on the old traditions. I'm now 71, pushing 72 real hard, and Caroline and I just did three gigs in three different states over the last weekend, working with that young whipper-snapper, Rick Fielding from Toronto (well, Scarborough). I actually showed young "Fingers Fielding" a few guitar tricks that surprised him (1: how to get through an entire song without going above the third fret, and (2: the proper way to lean on the top of the guitar while singing an unaccompanied ballad. Yep, there's a lot we can teach these youngsters, Roy. Don't despair!
