At the benefit

Another nice set today.

Stream Of Consciousness
Calvins Girl
Widows Garden

Six songs, 5 tunings. I may not have planned that as well as I could have. This was the second time that we did Calvin's Girl and Critters without the Cuatro (which has been fussy lately) and it worked just fine.

The tunings were
1 - Guitar in standard tuning
2 - Bouzouki in D tuning
3 - Bouzouki in E tuning
4 & 5 - Guitar with the B string tuned to C and capo 7

Yeah, and it went really smoothly. Although I thought Calvin's Girl sounded a little off, Lizzie did not, and she is a better judge of such things.

I'm kinda burned out now ... OVFF this weekend. Then Windycon in a couple of weeks, then home till the first weekend in January. We get a lot of rest then.

This was originally posted on Dreamwidth, after which it wandered out to various other sites. Feel free to reply where ever you want. I should still see it.
