October gigs

I played two concerts this month, both on bass guitar. One was a corporate gig at the Hamm Building in Saint Paul, with Paul Renz and Eric Heegaard on guitar, Todd Tanji on trumpet, Lisa Meyer on keys, and Jessie Lemeister on drums. We played many original compositions by Lisa, as well as jazz standards. The other was a benefit for the West Bank School of Music in Minneapolis, with Paul Renz on guitar, Jessie Lesmester on drums and Robert Tess on piano. We played three songs: "Blue Bossa", "It's a Stretch" ( a Lisa Meyer original), and "Autumn Leaves." I used my Parker Fly bass for both gigs - excellent! - played through an SWR amp. Butch Thompson closed the show with some great piano solos by Fats Waller and Jelly Roll Morton.

I have been on-line searching for hours for information regarding easy guitar song and stumbled across your blog during my journey :-) Peter Jackson your blog is really amazing! Keep up the great work. Obviously my search on easy guitar song was way off when compared to October gigs and find it funny how it landed me here. The internet is a funny thing. Anyways, great job on your blogging and keep up the good work! I been searching for easy guitar song for over 2 hours and needed a break from it. I started reading your blog and really enjoyed it.
P.S I will add you to my favorites so I can come back and visit later

Well this blog certainly is not about acoustic electric guitar. What the heck! I guess the internet can play some tricks on us sometimes. I have been on-line for two hours
researching acoustic electric guitar and came tumbling across your blog. I LOVE IT! I needed a break from acoustic electric guitar anyways :-) If you don't mind I want to add your
blog to my favorites list so I can come back later on and read some more stuff. Well I guess I should get back to researching acoustic electric guitar.
Even though my search is not on October gigs I am glad I came across your blog. Keep blogging away!

Hey Peter Jackson. Very nice blog :0) I just got inside from washing and waxing my truck. It is my baby. Took me 2 hours though. So I settled down into my basement and started doing some web surfing. Anyways I am in the process of grabbing my masters degree and have spent the last 6 months researching beatles guitar tab. In the midst of my surfing I landed smack dab in the middle of your blog. I hope you do not think I am intruding but I must say it is great blog. Even though October gigs is way off base from beatles guitar tab I found myself cruising through your blog archives for the last half hour :0) You have some nice blogging friends. Anyways, I need to get back to my mission. I wrote don’t your url and feel free to visit me here at beatles guitar tab. I am so busy so I can only update my site monthly. Keep up the great work.

All I can say is WOW Peter Jackson. The other half and I just got back from our friends house (well her friends house) and I needed a huge break. I am working on a project right now that is based on beginner guitar. I have literally been on-line for 2-3 hours doing research. Even though October gigs really isn’t on the same page as beginner guitar I am certainly glad I came across your blog. There are a ton of great view points on this blog. Well I think I can here the kids screaming in the background. I put you in my internet favorites and I will certainly come back and visit. If you want to take a peek at my site you can find me here at beginner guitar. I update my site very frequently. Again, great job blogging and I will be back again soon!
