    NIIIIICE!

    How abouts "flight of the bumblebee"? Anyone ever attempted this? I assume it's quite difficult on ANY instrument.

    That's the only thing I don't like about them. No bass player? What's up with that?

    Sound Chaser. That's the one that had me stumped.

    But back then, we didn't have one of those CD players where you can change the pitch. That would've made the difference just being able to pick the notes out.

    I was sitting in the bar of the Wyndam hotel in Arlington, TX a couple of weeks ago with Ray Duke and there was an open jam after the headline band played. This was during the Arlington Guitar Show weekend. I left for a few minutes and when I came back, Ray pointed to the guy on stage and said "Bugs Henderson". That's the first time I had ever seen him play live. Awesome guitar player.
    Starting to think about returning to bass playing in the very near future.
