I have lurked for a long time but only started posting a couple of days ago.

Ahhhhhh let's see I'll get the important stuff out of the way first....

A Crown and 7 please....hold the 7 and bring a Harp chaser....thank you.

I play that folky music, but my definition of a folk song is somewhat expansive. If I can play a recognizable version of a tune on my acoustic and at least one other person knows the words....we have a folk song. It has entered the collective conciousness....if it is a good song it will still be there 50 or a 100 years from now.

I play guitar mostly but I also show up on bass and I can fake mandolin. I sing too. In fact I do most of the singing with the group I play with (God help us).

Carlin is my real name....I was named after great-grandpa.

And I hail from the great state of of sunshine and sharks.

Nice to meet all of you.
