    @sanrico, don't worry about
    putting together an advertisement flyer for me. I've got enough Word document skills to do this myself.

    Regards the church, that's
    because our congregation does not have a large auditorium or hall that would accommodate a stage band. There ares several brothers in our congregation who actively practice guitar, and one active gigging guitarist locally. Plenty of resources for me to ask the how-to's and what-if's as necessary.

    Our audio is comprised of a
    computer-assisted audio/visual system that does well piping pre-recorded songs through the system, as well as allowing for audience comments with handheld mics; also speaking from the platform. We even have brothers who are trained in the aspects of providing audio/video at appropriate times during our discourses.

    So, no, no place for a stage band. In other lands or cultures, there might be call for musicians to play on stage, but with our audio system, no need for a stage band.

    Bob, not only is that a big family, it's rare that so many brothers in the same family share the talent.

    It's a joke. Don't take it any further than the dumb joke it is.

    BTW I have taught.

    I was going to include the disclaimer in my post that I didn't really believe it, but thought it was apt for the situation at hand only. Given this thread and various posts by OP, I didn't think that disclaimer was necessary.

    Given the number of musicians in your congregation, have you ever wondered if any of them are also members here? TGP is really popular after all.

    Oh, you mean like how I told myself, "It's gonna be alright." when I told her the chart she had given me was wrong.

    Her reply was, "Oh, Sorry. It is in A Capo II.". I came to learn that meant that when we are playing a song in the Key of B, she plays cowboy chords in the Key of A and refers to the 2nd step of the scale as B#.

    So......................I disbelieved THAT!

    2 self-taught guitarists besides myself, plus 1 actively gigging guitarist who has his own acoustic trio (?) that plays locally. He has plenty of storage area for all his band's gear (I was amazed at his storage space. Even his garage acts as a stage for band practice)

    I'm not sure. There are several fellow musicians from other states who are TGP members here, but they usually live a "lower profile" in a variety of forums other than just the Pub. The ones from my local congregation, I don't think these folks spend time on TGP.

    I've always wondered if it were possible to put a face to the names on TGP. Mark, thanks for adding your video to this thread. I think it's nice to get to know TGPers better when we have faces connected to the screen names.

    Oh, please forgive my manners. Thanks for the music video!

    As you may know, I’ve weaned out of the 40 hour work week, to a 25 hour work week to now a 0 hour work week.

    But it has never been hard to persue my muse. Theses days may be harder strangely enough. Let’s look.

    Join me, won’t you?

    A.M.
    7-8; make coffee, fresh squeezed juice, feed and tend to the dog.
    8-9; drink coffee in bed, surf TGP, hoohah.
    9-10; prepare breakfast, serve breakfast, cleanup.
    10-11; long walk with dog
    11-11:59; Check in TGP, light housekeeping
    P.M.
    12-12:30; lunch and cleanup
    12:30-1; Check in TGP, hoohah
    1-2:30; get swole at YMCA
    2:30-3; errands
    3-4; long walk with dog
    4-5; light housekeeping
    5-6;dinner, cleanup
    6-7; Check in Interweb
    7-10; various entertainment programs, hoohah

    Sometimes if I have solo gig coming up, I’ll practice in lieu of light housekeeping.

    In between the routines, I may get 10 minutes here and there for guitar or Dobro

    Sunday mornings from 10-12 is band rehearsals, with policy being anyone can cancel for any reason. That person must contact the other two.
