I can attest that those lessons are amazing.  Attending Richard's class should be a requirement for all attendees!

Richard, at the very least you should bring dvds of the lessons. No problem squeezing  an hour's worth of lesson into the programme for those who wish (me included).

I'd much rather have a live session with Richard than a DVD - surely that's the whole point of our get-together?  Was in two minds about bringing my lap machine, but a short workshop with Richard would definitely encourage me to pack the thing.

Edit: Sorry, forgot to mention - glad to hear old Scratchy's on the mend.

Finally got off my backside and booked...

Now- to start planning the instrument list:
5 string banjo, 6 string banjo, Ukulele.  Not going to have much room for guitars :(

We'll fit Richard into the programme  (I want a live lesson myself), but I still urge him to bring copies of the dvd for future reference, they are very useful and inimitably presented.

Slim, bring all the junk you like it's at your own risk. You, Graham and Parlor (sic) Picker can organise your own uke convention later. As for the Devil's work, I believe Guernsey welcomes b***os.

Dont panic...

My Uke has has been sitting with me in the office for six months and has not been out of its case in that time.  I plan only one banjo...

Im thinking of bringing a big noisy reso and playing some slide this year.

I may be sic(k) given my liking for the humble ukulele.  :D

Well there we have it, by popular request I shall cobble something together. Actually, having thought about that statement I can tell you now what we shall be doing, we'll be in open G and I doubt if we will be learning any songs  :o  but, we be learning a few basics moves with an emphasis on scales, did I say scales   ::)  oh, sorry so I did  :P

For those that have seen my infamous vids they know what to expect, but for for those that haven't you will need some form of guitar without to too low an action and some form of bar - a heavy slide is probably quite sufficient, I have no objection to sllde banjo and\or uke provided you play them somewhere else  :D

On the health front may I congratulate Prof Scratch on his recovery and imagine by now he will doubtless be hard at it perfecting his masterclass in soft crofter's croft. Personally, my bypass of several years back was reverting to more of a country lane so I have just returned from a major cardiac rebuild especially so I have the necessary impetus to do this class  ;)  Actually it wasn't half as bad as I thought since they gave me double the dose of intravenous vallium and I was flying high above the whole procedure, what's that song about being a viper?

The intravenous valium seems to have been slow-release. Sure they didn't spill some acid into the syringe?
