    I lost a friend today

    My friend of almost 20 years died today at the age of 78. He was a Korean war vet and had some stories to tell. He also played guitar for the better part of his life. Buzz was one of those guys that you could listen and learn from all day long. I am not one for emotions, but this has hit a little hard. Please do me a favor and send prayers for peace in his family. Thanks..

    P.S. here is a short vid....

    Don"t let stupid be your skill set....

    And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
    And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,

    Done. He sounds like a great guy. His guitar playing sounds as if he took lessons from Chet Atkins.
