Working through Jeff Peterson's "Paniolo Soul". A great G minor tune. As usual with JP's arrangements, I have to modify some chords because I can't physically play what he recommends (read: old, small fingers). Also, as always, a humbling experience for someone considered to be somewhat accomplished. When I finish this I'm going to flog myself and try to get through "Maui on MY Mind" again.

I've been learning tight key for the last couple of years. Currently getting comfortable with drop 2 voicings.

12toneman, any playing in any tuning on any instrument is "money in the bank" - building the connections an expanding the ear!

I've mostly been playing "tight key" of late too, in that "weirdest of all tunings (standard)". It has been a regular bluegrass jam plus a few tunes that are new to me for a ukulele and a guitar student. My approach is to let them choose the tunes that they want to work on, as motivation. I get exposure to songs that I might not otherwise ever hear, especially from the younger folks. My radio stations are set to the old familiar 70's and 80's rock of my youth.

I really should carve out some time during this coming long weekend and work on slack key too. There will be a Sunday afternoon classic rock & roll jam at a friend's house, well after the turkey hangovers. We're all in the 60-70 age range. They were reluctant to host a big Thanksgiving get together, but will have a limited (6 or less) jam at home on Sunday.

Earl! The reason for cooking a turkey is: mix the leftover mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, chopped turkey, and a big onion (chopped, fried in butter) and make HASH! All the joy in one dish!

Hash is a great idea, Thumbs! I have some friends who make "leftover sandwiches" with all the ingredients, complete with cranberry dressing as a layer inside. That just seems wrong somehow.... I love cranberry dressing, just not as part of a savory sandwich. To each their own.

Earl, if everyone played guitar, who'd play ukulele? One size don't even fit most...
Then there are the different kine tunings, li'dat.....
