About this blog title

I cannot tell you how many times I have shown up at events with a couple of cameras around my neck, a gadget bag full of odds & ends and a lighting kit and have been asked that question. If it happened once every few years, that would be one thing. But it happens a LOT. It's like getting pulled over by the police and he's standing there with uniform, gun, flashing lights and asking him "Are you a cop?" I would love to come back with a witty reply, such as "No, I am Jesus. Don't you recognize my beard?" However, I cannot be that rude.

Classical guitar concert and workshop

This past Wednesday, April 16th, I did another one of the series of concert/workshops. I am doing a total of ten of them at area libraries. This one was at the Depauville Library.  Here is the poster they created. It depicts a steel string guitar as opposed to a clssical one, but that's OK. It gets the idea across.
The event went well. When I got to my selection of Beatles tunes I got hung up on All My Loving, simply lost a chunk of it out of my memory. No one really cared, we laughed it off.  There were 25 people in attendance. I also played my new Cervantes guitar that I bought a couple days earlier at The Classical Guitar Store in Philadelphia, PA. I have been getting a better handle on the stage fright issue. I am simply being more realistic about it. The new guitar was nice to have which also helped keep me focused on the music rather than on idiotic thoughts such as how people might be judging me.
