I have to wonder if manufacturers would even bother issuing DVD's given the amount of stuff available with a few clicks around the web.

Loads of demo videos with experst playing but I've seen nothing of any instructional value on how to use the functions of the BK9.
Please put up a link if you know of any

Well, as much as I enjoy helping folks over these many, many years, I know that I will continue to do so as long as I physically and mentally can. However, much of the upcoming years will be spent aboard the boat, often sailing in locations where there is no internet or cellular telephone connection available unless I would be willing to shell out $1,000 a month for a marine satellite service, which I will not. I think that money would be better spent sailing to faraway places with strange sounding names. wink

Chas, if you can find your way to Hilton Head, SC, I hope to spend a few days there during my trip to the sunny south, visiting some friends that live aboard their 50-foot houseboat where I played music for their barefoot wedding. I'll burn some filet Mignon on my boat's gas grill and mix up a batch of green coconut Margarettas. Who knows, maybe you might enjoy sailing to the Bahamas on the old tub. wink

All the best,

Gary cool

Here I have to complement AJ again for the excellent DVD tutorial on all the in depth stuff on the Audya. He sure sets the standards for others in so many things.

Certainly a possibility Gary, as I have friends who have vacation homes there (as we once did). I'm usually there on the major holidays as that's when my friends are there. My friend just sold his old house (for 1.8M) ostensibly to downsize but his new pad seems to be even more lavish (can't take it with you, I guess), so we're going down (across?) to check out their new digs. This is their vacation home; actually their primary home in Hockessin, DE is quite modest (relatively).

See you on the road.

Looking forward to it, guys. Bill, I suspect there are lots and lots of music opportunities there, all of which are likely low paying, because it's a resort town. It has been my experience that the farther south you go along the east coast, the lower the pay. However, the competition is, in reality, not all that keen. Lots of have guitar will travel guys, most cannot sing very well, and they tend to play only one style of music. Very, very few arranger keyboard players down there, and after one night playing at a marina restaurant in Myrtle Beach, the owner wanted me to spend the winter and was willing to pay my rate, which was a real shocker. For nite clubs and restaurants, I was charging $100 per hour with a 3 hour minimum. In Baltimore's Little Italy, where a meal for 2 cost upwards of $200, they pay is $100 for 3 hours on weekdays and $150 for Friday and Saturday nights, and on Friday they want you to work 5 hours. Another great reason to play the NH circuit.

All the best,

Gary cool
