March Songs.... late, late, late....

Yup! I made it, but just barely.

We have a jumping little Ja-wiian song for us this time. "Lahaina" from Loggins and Messina - remember them?. And an old favorite "Stand By Me" from Ben E. King.

Both of these songs have almost the same beat or strum... with a little twist to 'em. So they should be fun.

And, yes..... for our Irish friends (which I am one)... we will sing "When Irish Eyes are Smilin" from the 2010 combined book.

Check them all out on our downloads page.

You know those pretty silver Korg tuners...

I am talking about the Korg N222. A lot of us bought one... even though they were expensive (like $75)... and they did kinda make us look like we played better than we really did. Even Jake had one.... and he does play good.

Well, they don't sell them anymore, and you can't find parts for them either.... even that little cap that protects and covers over the battery... so it won't fall out. Well, I so despertly need one of those caps. Sooooooo.

I am looking for someone that has a broken Korg tuner N222 (the model number is on the back). Broken but not tossed, because it cost $75 new, one sitting in a drawer someplace collecting dust. I'll pay $10 for that little battery cap. Really I will. That's like 2 1/2 gallons of gas.

Only as a last resort.... will I use Duck tape to fasten down the battery.

Just email me... and it's a done deal.
