As far as singing goes, I wanted to do something new and have a style that wasn't too common. I was inspired by the records of Jimmie Rodgers, a white singer of that time. He was called the 'yodeling singer' because he would sing some parts in a head voice, like the Swiss yodelers. I took that idea and adapted it to my own abilities. I couln't do no yodelin' so I turned to howlin'. And it's done me just fine - Howlin' Wolf

You can ride the ferry from the Colman Dock downtown over to Bainbridge Island and walk into town. There are a couple of moderately priced restaurants there that won't set you back too much. And the return ferry trip is free.

If you like outdoorsey stuff, you can always gear up at the REI Flagship Sore:

No shortage of good seafood in the area. Quite honestly, we usually just buy it and cook it at home. Or have it given to us (see attached photo).

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone.  Sorry to see that the Miro exhibit leaves the Seattle Art Museum before we get there!

Stuart -- the fish pic (coho salmon?) is a tease!  :)

Anybody checked the PT website lately?  I can't seem to get it to work.

As things come to mind, post them and I'll see what I can come up with. I live in Shoreline, which is just north of Seattle, so even though I haven't walked every inch of every street, I might be able to come up with something helpful. And you can always send me a PM if you think your info requests are too specific for the Forum.

I think it's a Coho, although it might be a King (Chinook). We went from a sink full of fish to a fridge/freezer full of fish, which sounds like a good title for a happy blues song or maybe even a short story.

Hi Eric:

Just checked with IE and Firefox and got the "Error 403 Forbidden" page, so it's just not you. Might be worth sending an e-mail to give them a heads up, if someone has something other than the "Centrum.org" contact info.

The Centrum website is back, but the PT info isn't yet.  It looks like they were down while reconfiguring the site:  the layout and look of the site has changed.

EDIT:  The PT pages (the general page, the one with faculty bios, etc.) appear to be there and available -- but the sidebar links to them aren't there.  But if you have the URLs in your browser history, you can get to them that way.

I just registered! Second time for me. Went in 2008 and had a pretty darn good time despite the fact that: I was in the proverbial "bad place" in my life and not very fun/ outgoing; I had never played with others before, let alone in front of other people. I am a very slooooowwww learner and was in over my head most of the time...but hey I never felt judged and the ribs were good!

I promise to have more fun this time, but not too much.

Gary

Just wish Warner Williams was going to be there; Not to teach, just to be there seemingly wherever I went, playing some of that sh** he played!

Is there a secret hand sign by which we'll be able to identify fellow weenies?  ;D

Lurker Buzz , here!

Came looking for chords for Old Tune: "Who's Sorry, Now?" covered by Milton Brown and tons of others. Turned up zip. then decided to check posts  since last visiting WC. Here I is!

PT 2014 will be simply said, "Awesome!"  I agree with Broszzzzzz that deciding who to sit in with and when will be tough, as usual.

But, remember Mike--regardless who we study with, our little gray cells will absorb the pearls from each sitting. We will leave with at least 7 little pearls up in our heads. If we are lucky, maybe more than 1 each day!

I  look forward to seeing and playing with all the usual reprobates and petty no-accounts up at PT. I will be there, adding to the reprobate count. Music camp for adult reprobates, how nice....

John Miller's classes are generally a good place to meet. :)
Buzz-I'm still tryin' to dust off the handful of pearls remaining from previous years, but I reckon I can cram another couple-few up there...
Lookin' forward to seein' y'all!

I'm looking for a ride to Blues Week from Port Angeles (I'm arriving on the Black Ball Ferry).  Anyone headed that way? I'd be happy to share expenses.

Thanks

Can't help you, and maybe you already know about this; but just in case you don't, and just in case you're not able to find a ride with someone (which would obviously be more convenient), I wanted to make sure you knew that there is bus service between Port Angeles and Port Townsend.

I dropped a guitar off at Centrum this morning, to be raffled to benefit the scholarship program.  It's a stainless steel resonator parlor model, 14 fret, about the size of a Martin 2 at 12" wide, weighs 6+ lbs.  So remember to bring extra money!

see ya July 27

I'll most likely be in PT around Sat. afternoon- it looks like the buses are a bit sparse on the weekend. Do you have an estimate when you are arriving? I might be able to shoot over and pick you up.
Got the name, still workin' on the licks!
