Happy Spring… (including Six String Fufu) and school’s out too!

Hello, kiddies.

I’m finally ready to get this show on the road. After three grueling months of studying algebraic expressions and equations, I’m HUNGRY!!! With that said, it’s time to lay the first of what I hope to be many piping hot and fresh freeform exercises. First of all, this one was inspired by a recent email I received from the proprietor of jemsite.com, a discussion forum dedicated to the glory of the guitar (a hearty hello to all of you dropping by from there. I hope you enjoy your stay)… For those of you who enjoyed Organic Fufu last summer, get ready for what I hope will be a real mind blowing experience. Each and every ingredient in this my latest double shot contains some type of guitar chops, from full on riffing to the simple syncopated scratch. Pour a glass of wine (or your refreshment of choice, liquid or botanical) and dive in…

both parts in one, so Double your pleasure, double your fun. Besides, it’s been too long. I have to treat myself to some pleasure every once in a while. I’m keeping a 3.8 GPA, so I deserve it!

Big thanks to DJ Prestige, DJ Blueprint and my man Kevin over at the I Hear A New World headquarters for the inspiration this time around, and of course to Ava for inviting me to play for the good people at jemsite.com 🙂 Feel free to pay ’em a visit.

and now for the closing commentary…
I will make good on my promise to bring back the AntiDivas. In fact, it’s been two years this month since I dropped the first one on ya, so I will attempt to devote the entire month of April to the AntiDiva. It’s gonna be a lotta fun, I assure you. Since I only have a two week respite between terms, I figure I better get started. Again, I want to thank each and every one of you for bearing with me, and I want to send an extra special shoutout to the Guru and his trusted colleagues for continuing to keep plenty of 45 rpm heat on hand… the next time I see you all will be much sooner than the last time… 😉 Basically, there’s still plenty to eat ’round here so don’t go far. As always, have fun(k) and please be safe.

Peace and blessings.
