    The other night on the Voice a singer did Amazing Grace to the tune of House of the Rising Sun. Not a new concept but it works out nicely. It gives it a very different sound. A minor key sound.

    I told ya that, so I could tell ya this...

    I picked up the uke and found that I didn't immediately remember the chords to House of the Rising Sun. I've played it thousands of times. A little play and try a chord here and there and then run through it a few times and I'm back in business.
    So the moral to this story is even though you know something by heart doesn't mean that you don't have to get it out and work with it every once in a while.

    Don't forget the trumpet. It was striking.

    I wanted very much to watch that, and had it on, but apparently it was very important for me to be engaged in conversation when she performed. I saw the rehearsal sessions, and the very end of the performance.

    The talent level is quite high this year, especially amongst the young ladies. I look forward to it every week....

    I fully understand. The difference with me is that I never really get the songs "off book" in the first place. There are songs I've played hundreds, if not thousands of times, but without the book I can't tell you what chords are in them, much less play them. Mental block?

    We are off to the Bay Area today. 2 easy days in the saddle. Dinner Friday night at Chez Panisse Cafe. Visit to the ocean. See my family. Stop in Visalia on the way home to pick up roses for Mrs Pere's garden-in-the-making.

    Maybe check in tonight from scenic Barstow, California.
