I see no real problem there (assuming work does not
get in the way of pleasure too much, some hope!) ;-) ;-) ;-)

Robert Johnson wrote to me this morning, and embarassed me by saying
some very nice things about my contribution (blush, blush, giggle).
As I said in a reply to him, when you are on a list like this, which
seems to be ~90% blues, you tend not to get a great deal of feed back.
Because of this, I sometimes wonder if the folk biased stuff either
goes over peoples heads, or is not really of interest.
This is *NOT* a plea for recognition, just a subective feeling of mine.
I like to see balance in all things in life, the older I get the less
black and white life becomes. I'm sure this is true for most of us
oldies. Hell I'm 47 soon (June twenty third, but don't spend a lot on my
presents, will you?). ;-)
You certainly don't get instruments as weird anywhere else as in folk
music, well only in nightmares ;-)
Mind you I would say the accordion is now a main stream machine,
in the U.K. anyway.
>Maybe we can create a Fellowship of Outcast Instruments, sort of like
a Support Group.... =:)
I LIKE this idea, it reminds me of the Zen Buddhist meetings where
nobody turns up.
Let's just enjoy life!
Have a really good weekend everyone.
