    Would y’all even care? I’m just going nuts. Lol. I could play my new Rat Rod for you and talk through the mods?

    Sigh. Or maybe I should just go read another book.

    I would watch

    You tube live, never watched one, it would be fun.

    I would like to see you playing a few of your guitars, like that new PRS.

    Please do. I'd watch.

    The National Arts Centre of Canada put up $100k worth of grants for artists to stream live. They can be terrific IF the feed is very good quality. I've seen Jim Cuddy, and Whitehorse. Watching Terra Lightfoot this afternoon. Looking forward to Colin Linden, Suzie Vinnick, Serena Ryder, and The Surfrajettes. It's very cool!

    Best to double check the time with the artist's social media: https://nac-cna.ca/en/

  5. Leave the you tube blasts to us starving musicians. My wife has asked me to do a video every night until this blows over. Simple, cell phone, acoustic originals. If anyone is bored look up freddyfingersband on facebook. Its under my wife’s name. Not mine. Anyway, i have noticed that everyone is posting videos the past week or so. So as stated earlier, leave that stuff to us amateurs. You should be getting paid.

    I did a few Facebook live broadcasts playing guitar yesterday. I’ve been trying to catch up on projects at home. Definitely do a live YouTube if it helps

    I don’t think I’d be able to help one doggone thing. I’m just bored and have been lacking any motivation to even play! LOL

    Not long ago weren’t you talking about maybe doing an album this year?

    There should be lots of ways to get inspired to play today.

    I'd love to see a good YouTube Live video from you. I've been doing Facebook Live shows as often as I can. Admittedly, my brother and sister-in-law seem to be the only ones who like them, but they're in the thick of it up in Washington so whatever helps. Watching them afterward shows my singing and playing are not at their best in these, even when I'm not drinking. My only consolation is that I've watched friends' FB Live stuff and some of them aren't any better. I've been experimenting with different hardware and software to try to get the best audio and video quality, as well as guitar/vocal mix that I can. I think I've finally got it down. No matter what I do, it's only marginally better than just going straight into an iPad, I just don't like looking like I'm playing left-handed.

    Yeah, and I'd love to hear the Ratrod, so I know what to expect when you sell it and I buy it from you.

    I would watch!- do it- either it is a het, or no one watches. Either way, you will learn something and push out of the playing funk

    I was actually thinking just a very small, private, GT only thing. Just us guitar buds.

    Know what ELSE would be cool on a night @TV the Wired Turtle ?? A Nocturne family band jamboree! You’ve got a whole doggone live-in band, and gear to make it happen. I want a Friday night concert doggone it.

    There's a fix for that, somehow, in the Ipad system...

    You gotta pitch the time right for a live show. Remember, this is the World Wide Web and you are an international artiste

    Surprisingly I’m an extrovert and I’m good with it. Keep your brain busy and play with your daughter a lot
