Haaaaa, nice work Terry,,, so the "Organist" is going to be your date, lmao!
It doesn't really matter to me which day is Studio and which is Mtn; but I think logistically it makes more sense to do Mtn on Sunday because everyone will be here in [my] town on Sat. and it's quickest/shortest to leave from here [Fallbrook] for those who are going up. And we'd better let Scott know soon which day works best for everyone for the Studio; Scott, let us know if there are restrictions on the best day for the Studio okay.
Terry, check a few posts back [in this link], you'll see a bunch of hotels/motels (most reasonably priced) in my area [like within 5 min.s of my house] and in the Anaheim/OC area; check em out.
To give everyone a point of reference, NAMM is in Anaheim and the bbq is in Fallbrook; so you can investigate online what makes the most logistical sense for you. I would suggest everyone stay Sat. night in a Fallbrook lodge.
Thanks Barry, I think it's a great list too. Too bad you're not going to make it, you'd add a lot to the party!
Sounds like it's gonna be a lot of fun!
I can't make it either - but I'd love to go ....
Suresh, maybe Pierre knows how to set that up!!!
Denny,,, just make sure you bring your jug, buddy! The last time I had moonshine (the comml version), it was in 1971; I was working at an Esso (no not Exxon yet) station while in HS; it was about 30 miles south of the Canadian border, and these tanker truckers would come through the station for diesel and siphon off a gallon for their American friends (me); it wasn't even filtered yet, still had charcoal in it, lol. Two shots and it was lights out!

I may ask for help on collecting the sheet-music on some of them, but making demo's will be a piece of cake.
I should have all the music I suggested. One or two might even have chords on it.
I also found
Ode to Joy
Auld lang syne
Green sleeves (with chords)
cotton-eyed Joe (with chords)
Denny, 2 - 3 qts and I'll be able to run my tractor on it, lmao! Yeah, the truckers said it was 190 proof; it's why I'm so stupid today!
Believe me Pierre, we'll have plenty of libations before we play! I just hope the weather turns out to be on our side,,, a January day could be as low at 60F, haaaaaa; t-shirt weather for some of you; but my only real concern would be rain; then we have to bring it all indoors.
I sure hope more of you can make it too; you're seeing that this is turning into a great event; we'd love to have you here!!! JUST DO IT!!!!
Hey Scott! What's the update on when we can book the studio (you said it's free right?)
I suggest that we don't make it a moonshine fest till after we all jam together.
The studio time isn't looking so good. I know the owners and knew that they were going to Vegas during this time so I thought it would be a perfect time... but the studio is rented out the last 2 weeks of Jan. I tried. But I do have a ton of recording equipment myself that I'll bring to the jam...
RSVP - me! I love me some BBQ. I need to go to work on my fiddling. I've set it aside in favor of cello-ing. Has the sheet music been posted yet?
Can Scarborough Fair be played as a round? It seems to me I've heard it performed that way. It might be fun to try it.
I've learned so much from my mistakes that I've decided to make some more.
