Guess who’s having a Birthday today? Yep, you guessed it: the old man BGD (John) himself turned 36 (again) today. (Yeah, right!) So what do you give an old man who has everything? You give him this . . .
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Old Bean!April 21, 2020 at 9:22 PM #83695cricketParticipant
That’s a nice gift there for him, Scott! Happy Birthday, John. Hope somehow you can have people, with or without masks and gloves…celebrating with you. Thanks for all you do for us here…hope you blow out all the candles and have some yummy cake!April 21, 2020 at 9:29 PM #83698John (BGD)Keymaster
Thank you so much! It was a bittersweet day. I attended a social distancing graveside service for Larry Pruitt, an older friend whom I have known and made music with all my life. He passed away from cancer last Friday. I did get to see old friends and family today, which was very nice. I hope you all are staying well! Thank you for the birthday video, Great Scott, it really picked me up!April 21, 2020 at 9:51 PM #83700kjdeboltParticipant

Happy birthday John…but sorry to hear the loss of your friend. This is a terrible time to lose friends because of the distancing. I’ve had to watch several services for loved ones of friends that were broadcast online.April 22, 2020 at 1:36 PM #83709IcebikeParticipant

John, sorry you lost a friend on your birthday…and social distancing on your birthday…the birthdays are complicated right now. Hope all in all it had more good to it than bad.April 25, 2020 at 12:22 PM #83813
John, You’re awesome. You do us all a wonderful service in teaching us to fiddle. You have a wonderful Bluegrass site, including an awesome forum to exchange ideas, etc. You have a wonderful family. I’m very happy to know you from this site and still look forward to the eventual day (I hope) that I can meet you in person and maybe attend the Tuesday thing-a-ma-jig in the park.
Thank You, Angela. I had fun recording it. I tried it in the key of G first but decided on A where I could use a little drone-ing once in a while. 🙂
Thanks, Peggy. I appreciate it. 🙂April 25, 2020 at 1:13 PM #83823Fiddle4meParticipant
