Hi all.
The WEFT performance went very well, and I got a good recording of it. I 
like the recording so much that I'm thinking of editing it
a little and making CDs to sell. I posted the full-length take of "Shiny 
Stockings" at the bottom of the page:


I think you can hear how it has improved since I recorded the other mp3 
two years ago. I worked out much easier fingerings for the
melody, and now with the Echoplex I can do a tag and a "Count Basie" 

Some nice re-tuning in mid-song there. I kept trying to tune between 
songs, and the host would ask me questions to avoid "dead air"
so I couldn't finish tuning. Next time I think I'll sample the music from 
"Jeopardy" into the RC-20 and let that play while I'm
tuning! Or maybe record the bass and drums in, then let that run while I 
tune silently. Too bad I didn't think of that before...good
trick for next time.
