This is important boys and girls, I am in the process of doing a cobbled-up timetable and find I could do with another workshop something to fill the time.

So, would any of you care to volunteer your services for say a 30\40 minute session or other for a couple of 15\20 minute spots ??? Or even all of it!

I would add that if you have never done anything like this before but feel you have something to impart it's a great and informal way to give it a go   :-X  At this point I should remind the latent audience that you are only allowed to jeer and boo, not throw things.

If nobody else is brave enough then I shall be reduced to doing another one of my dreadful aural type quizzes and a real time demonstartion of resonator polishing.

Blueshome is putting a quiz together with a minor contribution from me... That should fill 10 minutes.

Right here we go, hopefully attached is the timetable for the weekend  :)

As ever it is a movable feast and liable to change, but at least it gives you a clue as what may or not happen  ::)

Do not despair if you still feel the urge to do a short presentation\workshop just let me know and I'm sure I can slip you in somewhere, as the actress said to the bishop  :P

Just read the programme - looking forward to the workshop on "1-chord songs". At last something I might manage. Just hope it's the one chord I know....  :-\

Less than one week to go now, I am so excited, this will be the highlight of my ...weekend... :)
Now which of my banjoes shall I pack?...hmm difficult choice...maybe all of them then, that way ParlorP and BluesH  will have a good choice of which to admire and gaze in wonder at! I know they are both really closet banjo geeks, "why dont you two 'come out', we can provide the necessary support for you both" :D

Just read the timetable. I'm quivering with anticipation, as is Lorna :-)

My workshop won't be on RJ, as advertised; it will grapple with two CP numbers; both in open G

We look forward to seeing you all

Not sure I want to see Bob in that state, but I do want to see Mr S's collection of banjos  :P :P

Richard, I am polishing the banjoes all up so as to be seen in their finest condition, its good to have open acknowledgement of the wonder of these machines. I know Phil and Michael also harbour a love for all things banjo but feel unable to express it, thats why they deride and verbally abuse them, the more they do so, the more intense are their feelings of adoration to the banjo. I do hope they feel able to "come out" soon, it must be such a burden for them to carry.

It is really a shame Mike, that your professed love for the b**j* is based on your sublimated fear of the tuneless, sustainless, clanking sound that these things make. You believe you control them but in reality they control you. Seek counselling immediately to save yourself.

Dear All,
Just loading up to depart. Should anyone be interested, I will have a one song workshop available entitled   " Teaching & Preaching The Blues - Learning with Brownie McGhee "
which is about teaching in clichés.
