Hi Eddie

My girlfriend and I enjoyed your show at La Baguette last Sunday. We came down from Lafayette to check it out, as we saw you didn't have any Denver area gigs posted coming up anytime soon. We were the couple sitting about 10 ft. away against the wall to your left.

I enjoyed your rundown and advice about the festival in France, including jamming etiquette, and the steps to take to be able to start jamming with people. I am a professional guitarist in a different genre, but got my first Django record when I was 17, and have been a fan since then. I guess I wound up in a more populated field of music because band opportunities and venues just presented themselves.

I am thinking my next move is to learn the rhythm guitar parts to a bunch of Gypsy standards, and when I have done that, look for opportunities to sit in.
