Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

That "When Shrimps Learn To Whistle" video reminded my a lot of diving in Hawaii.
Made me a little home sick.

I just never got around to it.

like the wind is, so is my music:
low winds - smoth an flowting : sometimes music played on a "hang"
mid winds - everyting with a midtempo - pianochocolate,.....
high winds - it must be fast an loud, like motörhead,  raige against the machine, chemical brothers or drum and base.

greetings from Berlin- Germany

Wow, the Leo K references here impress me.  I got turned on to him while in college and saw him twice in Chicago over the course of those years. 

His command of the 12 string simply defies what normal folks can do.  When I first started playing guitar way back when, I can remember thinking if this acoustic sounds this good...then a 12 string played well must sound unbelievable.  Then I tried one and came to the realization that those extra strings don't make it any easier!  Years later I saw Leo play and thought, "SEE!!  I knew it!!"

Thanks for the memories, Steve and all.

Grover Washington, Jr. - Skylarkin'  (in my alltime top 5 Smiley Smiley)
Van Morrison, Donald Fagen/Steely Dan
John Coltrane - Ballads  (another top 5)

Am I outing myself as a geezer?

If so, guess am there with you.  Great picks.  Like Walter Becker's solo album better than Fagen's - bit darker
