First of all, Panera Bread has the best tuna salad sandwich I know of. Nice chunks of tuna and just a little bit of tangyness. Put it on their honey wheat bread with some lettuce, and ahhhh…. I had it for lunch and now I want another one for dinner.
Dave is here for the weekend and we’re going to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra on Saturday. The program includes Rodrigo’s Fantasía para un Gentilhombre, with guitar performed by Sharon Isbin, and Rachmaninoff’s second symphony (not really known as the Eric Carmen Symphony), plus a world premiere work the details of which I’ve forgotten. This oughta be fun.
Leo Kottke’s album One Guitar, No Vocals strikes me as being like 6- and 12-String Guitar (his first album) with much maturity and experience. I’m still amazed at what he can do with a 12-string. I used to own 12-string guitars, but my fingers would get tangled in the strings if I tried explosive finger-picking like Kottke. Goofy iTunes (or maybe it’s Gracenote’s CDDB) says it’s “country,” which is exhibit number million and five why stuffing things in genres isn’t always a good thing.
