    Thanks KP, been a painful recovery. Ring finger on the left hand is the main digit in lead playing. Was very hard to do any string bends and certain chord shapes had me about in tears. I had a bad case of trigger finger that was getting worse and very painful so I had to get it fixed. Tried one cortisone shot that helped for about 6 months but then it went back to pain maybe worse. Surgery was the only option. This past weekend gigging was a turning point. Friday it hurt like hell but Saturday it felt looser and less painful. So far this week it's been pretty good and I'm optimistic it is going to heal up fine. I tried to push it too early and it probably didn't help. Hard to leave a rack full of guitars alone when they are sitting there just wanting to be played :) It did get me playing some long overdue slide practice. About to break out some slide tunes. Haven't played any in many years live.

    https://soundcloud.com/sixstring63/april-2017-btotm-gl Second crack at it with my G+L ASAT Classic with a DiMarzio Chopper in the bridge. This is tuned down a half step to play with my gigging guitars that are strung heavy. My strength is coming back in my left ring finger finally. Been a long 8 weeks.

    Happy Good Friday to everyone! I got mine done a little earlier this month. This was a very cool track, it was really an open canvas. So now I'm looking forward to listening to everyone else's submissions.
