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

HOUSE CONCERTS: My favorite place to play is in a living room for you and thirty or so of your closest friends. You don't need a sound system & it won't cost you a thing. If you're interested you can contact me directly by email to grooverevival at gmail dot com or call 780 695 3474. If you'd like to know more, have a look around Concerts in Your Home, linked below:
