August 20, 2019: Hey beauties, I hope the season's treating you sweetly. I'm home, after six weeks and some 13,700 kms in Lucky, and I'm feeling pretty lucky about it all. Lucky to have completed, just yesterday, 43 laps around the sun! And lucky to think that the best ones may still be ahead. The most exciting news on the horizon is that my buddy Justin Farren and his family are already on their way up from California...

TABLATURE: I've had a few requests for tablature, so here's some of fish jumpin, for your plucking pleasure...

HOUSE CONCERTS: My favourite place to play is in a living room for you and thirty or forty of your closest friends. You don't need a sound system & it won't cost you a thing. If you're interested, contact scottcooksongs@gmail.com.

  FACEBOOK: if you've got nothing better to do with your time, come show me some like on Facebook.
