Story of Dan 2.0 at the STL FEST

Posted on June 6, 2017 at 10:34pm 10 Comments

Unfortunately Dan got some bad news and life turned on him and he wasn't well enough to attend this year. Talked with him via email and he asked if he sent a photo would I stick it in a corner then he would feel like he was there. I said that I would make it happen.

Gary, just read your "Mr. Keys Guitar" post, Very nice. I know pick, don't know you, but would like to. curious, my friend has a saw mill that can be pulled as a trailer. helped cut a bunch of wood and a nice piece of walnut, the kept warping. how long did you need to dry your poplar wood? Here's a photo where we cut some rather green oak for friends truck bed. HEAVY.

Thanks for the invite and welcome I received from a few of you.  I look forward to attending the club meeting.  .  I just made my first cbg and license plate guitar as gifts and now I'm all in.  It's time to kick it up a notch!

I picked up a CBG kit at the latest festival in St. Louis and wondered if you know who I can talk to to get more. There is no contact info in the kit. Thanks!
