After moving to Denver, I was invited to join a group of fingerstyle guitarists who gathered for a song circle on the first Wednesday of each month. We shared songs, food, and stories. They were each outstanding guitarists, and we each had a different style. The gatherings were like a potluck dinner of guitar playing.
When the time came to move, the group gathered with me for one more picking session. Homemade split pea soup with a side of finger picking. I couldn’t ask for a better send off.
