Yes. I like that song too. Hits home to me. I had never heard it till I went to the concert last month. During intermission I was talking to the singer who asked me why I was walking with two canes. So I told him what happened to me last summer. When they came back on the stage they gave a little talk about how everyone goes through tough times then he pointed out to me and dedicated that song to me. I damned near broke out in tears while they were playing it. I came home and grabbed my guitar and learnt it.

On average we have a crowd of 20-25 people attending the 5pm service I play at. We have a song inventory of around 75 different songs to choose from every week so we are familiar with them.

This week though, we are down 2 members of my band for the upcoming 5pm service. Plus, it's Christmas eve. So we will most likely be playing to a packed house and the song selection will be of course Christmas carols. And I've been asked to play an acoustic fingerpicking version of silent night during the offering. No singing. Just me and my guitar playing to about 200 people. Some friends of ours from camp have said that they plan on being there too as it's intended for families with younger kids.

living the dream.

We posed for a picture after the Saturday evening service to put in the annual church report. Still going strong after 4 years.

It's shrove Tuesday so that means pancake supper at church. Our old organ was 110 years old and finally died last year so it was replaced by a new one just before Christmas. Rather than scrap the old one, we moved it downstairs and converted it into a cafe for coffee hour after sunday morning service. Check it out. Freshly ground coffee. It's even plumbed in with a water line.

One of which is a sweet sounding 12 string. An acoustic base I bought last year for the band. A nice electric I haven't played in years sitting in its case downstairs. And now this one to have at camp as a cheap little plucker around the fire. It's awesome to play and has a really nice sound.

While the epiphone was setup great and a nice player guitar, I found the large dreadnaught body size to be more difficult for me to handle as I have a hard time lifting my arms.

I opted to sell it and replace it with a Parlor guitar. I picked this up. The setup is near perfect making it a great little player. For a smaller body it really projects the sound. It's an Alvarez ap610s. It has electronics built in including a great and accurate tuner.
