Re: Bending notes on the harmonica

Which harp are you using? I've found the Hohner Special 20s to be easier to bend than, say, their Blues Harp.

Re: How to play guitar better/lessons videos or websites

Free to $50 is the range I've seen for a course; they'll post free lessons from the courses on their Twitter feed and in the app (I think, I usu. buy the $5 ones).

Re: How to play guitar better/lessons videos or websites

From the "almost but not quite what you asked for" department: TrueFire.com; long form lessons/classes, mostly not free. Their app combined with a modeler like Amplitube on the phone/tablet is something I'm enjoying using.

Re: Song Fight! Live 2017 Berkeley CA 15-16 September (CONFIRMED!)

Spud/fluffy: The Cave Springs Motel in Dunsmuir, Cal. is a pleasant in-between stop for your north-south (or vice versa) jaunts. Reasonable prices (IIRC) and comfy/kitsch as all hell.

Plus, some crazy acoustics effects in the surrounding hills. Eerie cool.

Yes and yes. Good grief, it's the first series I've had to preface my recommendations with a disclaimer ("Okay, there's going to be some over the top blood stuff in the beginning, but the story isn't all Viking blood sacrifices... <bites tongue> those guys aren't in it past that beginning bit"), and...

Congrats jb!

Voting Bay Area, as it's the most possible for my situation (and both Kimi's and my historical home turf), pending the follow-through on Kimi's hip replacement, money, vacation-time, &c., &c.

Re: Grimm

Tried to get into that sale, but the warehouse had a very limited capacity, and the door people were at the "one out, one in, try again tomorrow" stage that late in the afternoon. So Kimi and I wandered around the adjacent parking structure that looked small-screen familiar to us. Saw a lot of props...
