I Have Class

No pics today, but some exciting news. Actually, it's not really exciting to anyone but me, but still... I mean, seriously folks, anyone that has a blog has to be a little self-absorbed to even have a blog, am I right people?

I just signed up to take a 3-evening guitar finishing class in July in Evanston IL (northwest Chicago) taught by Marshall Brune in his dad Richard's shop. I'll be learning a technique called French Polishing which is sort of the "old world" way of finishing a guitarthat involves hand rubbing shellac to form a smooth thin finish over the wood. These guys are among the best in the business, so it's a really neat opportunity to learn from a master and I'm really looking forward to it. And I'll have a couple days free to hang out in the Chicago area, so that should be fun, too.

That sounds like a good time, and you'll be just an hour or so away from CDP headquarters!
I can already feel the Communism, and it makes me want to Dance.
That's Wisconsin for you.
That's really cool! What a great sounding class!

It might not be exciting news to some people...but those people weren't reading your blog anyway.

I love wood finishes that leave the wood feeling warm and soft, not the thick shiny poly finishes that make it feel like there is a layer of plastic over the wood! (Which...there is, I guess.) Seems like it would be better for the wood too. I look forward to hearing how it goes.
