I spent the weekend at the Arlington Guitar Show 2011, in Arlington, Texas, with the Vintage Guitar crew … Alan, James, Ward, Gil, Barbara, Lisa … man, what a blast!

The show itself was nutso, mind-boggling … more guitars in one place than I’ve ever imagined … check out the VG photo gallery on the Facebook page

Hanging out with everybody was like a Hollywood night for me – Gil Hembree is a celebrity, am I right? Lisa Sharken? I don’t know about you, but I consider Ward Meeker a living legend of walking, talking guitar encyclopendiums …

And watching those dealer jams, amazing … you think Brad Paisley can play? Meet Gary Hutchison sometime! Smokin’!!! Meeting the dealers, Berlin and Belzer, The Burst Brothers … the guys from Cream City … all of it was just great.

Thanks a lot, VG … anytime you want to send me again, I’m in.

Now tonight I’m gonna see if I can make my Tele sound like those jam session dudes … practice, practice!
