Thread Name: Rick Fielding's passing. (March 20, 2004)
Subject: RE: Rick Fielding's passing.
It's kinda syn-whatchamacallit that Sorcha's doing Fiddler on the Roof for Rick. I'm playing his treasured old guitar in a production of "Cabaret", a show that is fun and naughty on the surface and at the same time deals with some very profound questions about human nature. And the guitar chords and timing are completely @#$%^&*!!! I'm just trying to figure out all the G-flat-minus-13-squared and the 7/64 rests and all that...figuring out what chords to skip or simplify and still keep the beat... show opens Thursday and I'm just gonna do it the best I can for Rick.

Isn't a long long way;
Life is a cabaret, old chum
Only a cabaret, old chum
And I love a cabaret."
