Hello folks, how are you all. I hope life is treating you well, and that all those dreams you had 20 years ago have come to fruition.

 

I am doing OK, New girlfriend, gigs a plenty, and still teaching guitar. Lots of busking, and still enjoying life in Australia. The gigs are mostly in Retirement centres these days, but it is very lucrative, and i get to play all my favourite 60s and 70s songs. 

 

Any old schoolers still about, Hi to you all, hows it going.

 

 

 

Rick

Hey Rick! Just decided to stick my nose in as well; haven't been on in ages. Glad you're doing well; we're all doing fine here in Woolyback Land :guitar:

Hello Rick and John. Good to hear from you. I guess a few of us old coots are still alive and kickin'! I stop by GTU periodically just to see if anyone has been around. (Old habits are hard to break!)

 

Glad you're still playing quite a bit, Rick. I don't play as much as I used to. I get together with an acoustic bass-player once a week and we'll do an open-mic once in awhile, but that's about it. We do old pre-war blues. (The kind of stuff nobody wants to hear! LOL!!)

 

John, are you still working? (If you want to call drinking beer working! LOL!!!!)

 

Anyway, good to hear from you both.

Guys.. guys.. not so many posts please.

I don't know who's paying the GTU bills these days but surely they can't afford all this bandwidth you're using.

John, I think he blocked most new users a while ago, which is where all the spam was coming from.

 

Anyway, it's good to see a few members still checking out the site from time to time. Like a ghost-town that was formerly a boom-town not too long ago.

 

I think I've answered maybe three guitar-related questions in the last year or two.

 

"Those were the days. Yes they were, those were the days.

Those were the days, miracles everywhere. Where are they now?

They're gone..."
