hello fellow GMCers!

This week fellow GMCer Tomas Santa Clara travels across the world from his home in Portugal to my neck of the woods, the Bay Area of California (USA)

if you dont remember, a while back i made a thread about a GMC bbq. It was made as a joke, but I had gotten a PM from Tomas telling me about his plans to coming to the Bay Area. Turns out, he would be staying 10 min away from my house!


so this week he comes to the U.S. and later this week or next week, we will get together and go on a journey where we will search for a wish list of gear Tomas has given me and show him around, and take him to the guitar shops around the area.

hopefully our journey will prove fruitful.



now Tomas had his heart set on some real american BBQ....how could I deprive him?


Next saturday (the 12th) I organized a BBQ and invited all my musician friends. There will be Bassists, Drummers, Keyboard players, Guitar players, and good company all there to jam and welcome Tomas to the US.


we will Document the entire journey, and post back in this thread periodically





hopefully this will encourage GMCers near and far to meet up and have some fun. (but be safe!)

Sounds like a great time guys smile.gif tongue.gif

I hope you get a chance to share a recording, video or some pic's with use.


--------------------
"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

He's on the wrong coast to get real BBQ. He needs to visit Skennington in North Carolina. laugh.gif

I'm not one of those "N8V TXN" folks, but I have to give their claims at least a little weight. The barbecue here IS pretty darned good. The beef is local, even smile.gif
