LOL - well WELCOME BACK to the Devil's Instrument man !   Hope the stretches help ease the issues !

Just a couple of days back from an extended "working holiday" and getting back into things.  ( Well, I had some work to do although I did manage short visits to the forum most days, but it was Debbie that really had the holiday !!! ) 

I'll be at the 6/20 event, and I expect to catch your 7pm (UK time) show tonight.  

As it happens I was just getting round to try to collect a few EV players for a SJ session this Sat or Sunday ( probably Sunday - trying to rope in @cdennyb and @coolpinkone - timezones and other things permitting....  )

Good to have you back on the bow!  hats_off

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes.  

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

I over did it a little the other night after the show, kept fiddling,having to much fun. Thats why I decided to slow down and ease back into it

Good idea to do that Barry. It's common that we push ourselves too hard sometimes and that could do more damage than is worth in the long run. I know you are the kind of guy who likes to go all out. ūüôā
Glad to have you back!!!
