    Re: Shingles Pt 1

    Thanks Rick, I really appreciate that. At the same time, I've been playing these damn fool things since 1956 so I should be fairly decent at it.

    Re: Shingles Pt 1

    Thanks Tom, I appreciate that. I can go a long time without playing and still be able to play at a reasonable level. Why that is, I haven't a clue.

    Shingles Pt 1

    I hadn't played for almost 2 months so I figured why not play and record it.

    Re: Shingles

    2 to 4 weeks is what it usually lasts. I'm hoping to get in under the 2 week mark.

    Thanks Kevin, I appreciate that.
