Re: A shameless spam and call for help

Thanks Dan!

I'm gonna try to figure out how to do the friend addy etc. Couldn't find Daniel Albertini on myspace! DID find a Daniel Albertini on a guitar page talking about Jerry Garcia's guitars. Was that you? Are you a dead fan? I was auditioned for that band (keyboards), wrote music for their last Chinese New Years show... produced their friend Wavy Gravy way back when.

Checked out Don Alder - wow! Furious fingers of fire!

Don't really know that many folks up here. Moved here from Portland Oregon in 03. Since that time have mostly been working helping my daughter into the music business. So I've met a lot of folks touring with her etc. But we're on Vancouver Island which is 2 hours by ferry from the mainland (Vancouver). So I'm either here working on the farm (organic blueberries), working on music (practicing / writing) or recording or touring with her. Her record is 18 and rising on the charts here now. Lots of very big wingdings lining up behind her. I think, as Universal Music does, that you'll be hearing a lot from her in the next year or so.

I've always put myself after those I've been helping. But I have such a huge backlog of material I thought I should start moving it out into the world - hence "Grandpappy Twice". Plus, I'm 59 and it's occurred to me that if I'm ever gonna stick it out there I should start soon.

If you're ever up this way give a call. And thanks so much. The more we help each other, the more we help ourselves!

Link up on my friend addy and be sure to check out another very good aquaintance I have jammed
with in www.wvfest.com aka Winfield Walnut Valley International Finger and Flatpickin, violin,
mandolin, dulcimers of all colors etc. etc. Championships. He and the studio is actually right
there in Vancouver Canada! www.donalder.com and on myspace Daniel Albertini. My page is growing
and one music video (The One) and clips of indie films I have had tiny acting parts and
appearances in. There has been numerous people from Canada coming to the
www.barebonesfilmfestivals.com as well as Jean Savoie amazing bassplayer and fellow luthier up
there too. I last heard he was playing on cruize ships making boo koo bucks but bored miserable
for the most part. I gotta look him up again maybe he is on myspace as well? My last amazingly
talented singer I played for Amanda Rainey lived in Vancouver a good part of her life and visits
often whenever she can, she is in California now. I could not possibly remember all of the humans
up there I have met. Mr C.G.P. (certified guitar player) himself Tommy Emmanuel has been up there
touring as well. Link up bro! Have Fun and the best of luck to you and your bandmates. I still
have a lot of work to do and look forward to the ride ahead maybe we will hook up some time?
