Rochester Guitar Club Meeting, June 8, 2008

Rochester Guitar Club had an interesting evening this past Sunday. As the meeting unfolded, it was divided into three parts...: First, about an hour’s time for us to play our own things. This got off to a great start with a trio of members, Richard Taglieri, Kevin Mathers and Jeff Chiasson, otherwise known as “Stringalong”...

I hope everyone who played this past Sunday signed the set list... If you’ve been accidentally skipped or something is misspelled please let me know and I’ll send along a correction.

  • Stringalong (Richard Taglieri, Kevin Mathers and Jeff Chiasson) Fantaisie Impromptu (Frederick Chopin), Beauty & the Beast (A. Menken), The Water is Wide (Scottish traditional, arr. By B. Tyers), Mareta, Mareta (folksong from Valencia)
  • Dan Ball, A Simple Tune/Roses Black or Red
  • Chuck Dye, Little Girl Blue/Sweet Lorraine
  • Rosemarie Lombardo, All Together Now (The Beatles)
  • Greg Bogoshian, Autumn Stroll (original)
  • Jerry Carter, Beatles Medley
  • Deb Ross, St. Patrick’s Hymn (John Fahey)
  • Andreas Pankewytch, Prelude in C Minor (Agustin Barrios)
  • Von Martt, Mr. Guitar (Tommy Emmanuel)
  • Paul Schickling, Prelude and Allemande from D Minor Suite (Robert De Visse) and Etude #1 (Leo Brower)
  • Kinloch Nelson, Canadian Sunset (Eddie Heywood)
  • Wayne “Maynard” Penlon, Three-Legged Lizard and Ghostly Plea (both originals)
  • Dave Tamarin, Solea por Bulerias (flamenco)

Following our music, we heard a few general announcements by Kinloch Nelson, including a brief report on our recent concert featuring Deborah Fox, Petar Kodzas, Jerry Preston, and Mir Ali at Harmony House. Kinloch thanked all who helped our first concert proceed so beautifully, including several area radio stations and their announcers, local papers, club members who worked to put it together etc. Kinloch also invited all Rochester Guitar Club members to join our more-or-less-monthly “Board” meetings/planning sessions. These meetings are where many key decisions are made for the club and all are welcome to take part.

The last part of the June meeting centered on a surprise mini-presentation by Greg Bogoshianto showing us his guitar workmanship. He brought several of his own design of electric guitars for us to see and demoed several of them for us. Small size, ergonomic design, and relatively light weight in part achieved by chambering are central to his design. Some very interesting ideas!

Good to see a large turnout... and once again, to hear such variety in the music we have within the club.
