Newsletter - October, 2015
Welcome to the SF Bay Area Acoustic Guitar Society (SFBA AGS
See below for recent news, upcoming events, and random speculation.
Please contact me (Rich Morin) with news items, comments, or suggestions.
Here's a summary of (relatively) current group-related news.
Additions and corrections are welcome!
Unfortunately, our membership seems to have stalled at about 200.
This is only a tiny fraction of the acoustic guitar fans in the area;
the problem is how to let them know that we exist.
So, once again, here's the pitch...
If you know (or simply encounter) folks who might like to know about local guitar events,
please let them know about the meetup.
For convenience, here's a short, mnemonic URL to give them: http://doiop.com/sfba_ags
Having more members means we'll all hear about more events;
we'll also be able to sponsor more events and/or support more performers.
The coming months will be very good for lovers of classical guitar music.
The Fall arts season is beginning, so there will be lots of formal concerts.
The San Francisco Music Conservatory's year is also beginning,
so there will be a slew of master classes, recitals, etc.
If you like this sort of thing, be sure to join %SFCGS_t%
Aside from listing some events that we don't,
they occasionally get discount "coupons" such as the ones
they are offering for the Kazuhito Yamashita concerts on October 10.
Bruce Sexauer (of Sexauer Guitars
will be presenting at our Luthier Showcase on Thursday, October 8th.
Possibly unique among my long term peers, I continue to prototype,
by which I mean that every Instrument is unique
and built on the foundation of its predecessors in an ever evolving movement
toward the ultimate that I can possibly make.
I build what I call a traditional guitar, as opposed to what I call a modern guitar.
This is precisely what I mean to address in the upcoming presentation.

The online calendar is the definitive resource for schedule information,
because events may be added, changed, or even removed at any time.
However, the following tables may be handier than the calendar for a quick scan...
