Alain is planning on coming in 2008 I believe - I'm hoping Paul Davies will come again and Les Dorahy from Byron Bay who makes a truly excellent Selmac. The plan to do workshops in September has been put on hold - probably sometime after OzManouche now - maybe December - January. Hope the new bridge...

Hi Alec - how's things? sounds like your regular jams are starting to take off :) During the colder, drier weather the action of your guitar - an Angelo DeBarre Dell Arte if I remember - will lower quite dramatically. The usual remedy is to shim the bridge - find a luthier - maybe Paul Davies? - who...

OzManouche 2006 Review by Dan

So a budding young GJ guitarist from Alsace , now working in Australia misses his flight home. He returns to his hotel, and feeling down and out, goes for a walk around the block.
