Gentlemen,

For a variety of reasons I have decided to resign from the forum.

I would like you to know that it has been a great pleasure interacting with you and I wish you all the best.

I would like to offer special thanks to Larry, Caevan, Scott Frazer DBM, Bluesape, A-String, and others who have befriended me during my membership.

Be well. Play well. Take care.

Fred

Fred, truly sorry to hear that.
You have your reasons-if there`s something about the forum that could be improved by pointing it out I hope you`ll do that.
Otherwise all the best and keep those strings singin`.

Sorry to hear this, Fred. Sometimes things, whether on the forum or in real life, can get to be too much and you need to take a break. I can understand that. In the end though, sometimes a break is all you really need before you return, refreshed and ready to go. I hope to see you return in the near future. It was good having you here.

Fred, you have your reasons & I respect that, but I hope you will always feel comfortable to stop by, share a drink, & at least say hi from time to time here. No invitation required, you're always welcome.
See you around the ranch sometime, pardner.

Brother Fred, it's not the journey through life that's important, it's the people you meet along the way. You can always change your mind someday and post again as you know we are going to miss you! You have been an inspiration to me and I always find your posts insightful. Take care and don't forget to play San Francisco for me...Brother Lar. cool

Gentlemen,

Thanks to all of you for your kind and encouraging words. I am deeply moved and humbled by the fact that so many of you have encouraged me to return in the future. It is greatly appreciated.

It may very well be that Craig (A-String) is correct. It may be that what I need is an extended break, rather than a complete departure. I just bought a digital recorder. Assuming that I can figure out how to use the damn thing, I would very much like to post some of my music on the forum at some juncture in the future. Until then, my friends,

Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we're together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
Happy trails to you, 'till we meet again.

Some trails are happy ones,
Others are blue.
It's the way you ride the trail that counts,
Here's a happy one for you.

Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we're together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.

Happy trails to you, 'till we meet again.

Happy Trails-Dale Evans Rogers

Fred, I always enjoyed your comments. Insightful, upbeat, honest and humble. I hope whatever "trails" you embark upon are happy ones.
All the best my friend.

Fred, I'm planning on buying a digital recording deck this summer. Come on back in a month or so, and share some of your recording experiences. I want to know what I can expect when I try to figure out how it works.

Hey P90,

Thanks so much for the kind words and good wishes. I am truly overwhelmed by the positive comments of my peers and colleagues here on the forum. With sentiments like these, I clearly can't stay away forever. But, I do need to take a break.

Thanks again, Pal.
