True - it distracts from watching the girls!

LOL. Takes a little bit of practice. I learned to do it in 4th grade from a teacher who was INSANE about DaVinci who originated it (urban legend...just reporting my experience).

I'm fairly ambidextrous. I can write/draw mirrored or synchronized.

Didnít know where to drop this, but it must be seen. Thought about posting it in the guitar forum, but:

1) I donít know anyone over there.
2) Who cares what guitarists think?

Itís a great reminder of what a monster player Steve Howe is. He captures Les Paulís style perfectly.



Edit to add: it also may be the only time Iíve ever seen him jolly and playful. He has always seemed so dour and serious to me.

I was pleased to see Steve forgoing his pretty strict Ďno handshakesí rule for Les.

I saw LP play the Iridium shortly before he passed. He was still doing two shows on a weekday night. His son, who looked pretty damned old himself, was running the board and handling the tee shirt sales.
Les, crippled with arthritis, told more stories than he played, which was just fine with everyone in the audience. After all, there were not many people alive to tell of being babysat by W.C. Fields and getting stinking drunk with Bing Crosby.

Now there are probably none.

YouTube has a bunch of ĎLes Paul withí videos, most of them pretty good. The best, after this Steve Howe, might be the Larry Carlton one, with an outstanding female bassist, Nicki Parrot. Thereís also Dickey Betts, Brian May, Slash, ZZ Top, Joe Walsh, Zack Wylde, Chuck Mangione.

Gino Vannelli is on tour, and if youíre in the Washington/Maryland area (November 11, Annapolis), someone in the Facebook Gino Fans group has to sell their good seats, with no markup:

If you go, you wonít be disappointed. Iím thinking of going to the Atlanta show on February 15.

thanks, but the link didn't work for me. Maybe one needs to be in that fan club. The show in Annapolis MD is sold out.


A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.

I donít believe you need to be invited if you wanted to join it to connect with this woman, then leave the group. She says she has to be out of town for work on the 11th.

Here's a random thought rant:

I really dislike people who don't keep their word. It's happened often during the last few years, and even during this holiday season... to the point of sheer disgust.

Have you seen in a hospital one of those face-based pain scales - for example:


Based on this one, I've never been better than "hurts little bit."
I think 0 is there just so they know whether they're giving us too much meds

I'm probably the only one on this forum who thinks this way - - I've never been a big fan of Steve Howe's playing. The song orchestration and parts, that's obviously great, and Yes music is iconic. But a lot of his solos and general playing, seems very painful and not so much for me. If you want some effortless picking style shredding, here you go.

Apple Warns Customers to Stop Using Some MacBook Pro Laptops

(Bloomberg) -- Apple Inc. on Thursday recalled some MacBook Pro laptops sold between September 2015 and February 2017 due to a "battery that may overheat and pose a safety risk."

The Cupertino, California-based technology giant said in a statement that it is asking customers to stop using the computers. The problem affects the 15-inch version of the older MacBook Pro. The company said it will replace the batteries in these models at no charge.

"Apple has determined that, in a limited number of older generation 15-inch MacBook Pro units, the battery may overheat and pose a fire safety risk," the company wrote.

The recall notice marks the second from the company this year. In April, Apple recalled some wall plug adapters for international use that could create a risk of electrical shock. Over the past several years, Apple also announced less critical replacement programs, such as for batteries and storage drives in the 13-inch MacBook Pro.
