This blog is for Gary. He likes reading about the Como happenings since he can't make it. But tonight he was there! Along with David, Tom, and myself. It was a beautiful evening to sit out there and play, at least until the mosquitos came out at about 8:45 and we cut it short.
We had some teenagers stop and listen for a few minutes and then ask us what kind of band we were. Gary told 'em the truth but should have said we were the Fab Four. :-)
We played through some good tunes that Gary had along and then David worked us through an arrangement of "You are so Beautiful" that he is putting together. I can't wait to get a copy from him, he only had his one working copy along tonight. He even taught us a new chord, I called it "David's chord" but he's going with the FSTC chord (that's F-Shaped Tone Cluster for those not there.)
We also talked a little about the Windy City Uke Fest coming up on Aug 1,2,3. David and I are going to head over there and check it out. Let us know if any other StrumMn'rs are going.
(Maybe Curt Sheller can tell us the real name of the FSTC while we're there!)
I'll get a date for our next meeting soon, most likely a Monday night in 2-3 weeks.
