    Default Sent This to Sam Bush

    Heya, Folks:

    I'm looking forward to seeing Sam Bush and Ronnie McCourey tomorrow night in State College, PA. Sam's actually been promoting the five-day jaunt they are doing together, and on Facebook of all places. So, since he stepped into that realm, I decided to do what we do in social media. I replied, and offered my services if he needs me tomorrow night, lol.

    Here's proof:

    Mandolin: Kentucky KM150
    Other instruments: way too many, and yet, not nearly enough.

    Haha! I've always appreciated Sam's humor, especially his presidential campaign bit, running on the nothing platform, etc.

    Still waiting to hear from him about joining him on stage tonight...

    Yesss! The MT2 is continuing to delight.

    I have been playing J75s recently, and I thought they would make the action rougher going, but itís not the case. Itís actually woodier and more responsive. Sometimes is hard to digest just how much I enjoy the tone.

    The concert was fantastic. Sam was as good as Iíve ever seen him, full of energy, creative as heck and having fun. Ronnie was good, but I was a bit perplexed by his band. The energy was missing, like it was a bit flat. I think some more mando features would help that.
