Guitar "Action" Reviews

Large concerts, small concerts, conventions, and music store work shops can all produce magical music moments.  However, not all magic happens in the structured concert hall environments where they typically receive standard media coverage.  A lot (and, more interesting) happen at gigs in smoky little bars, coffee houses, and "other action" on corners and hallways of conventions, street corners, on parks benches on warm summer evenings, and of course - Pickin' Parties.  This page is a place for any "witness" of such great "moments" to share their fortunate experiences with the rest of us, so that those magical moments don't just slither away into oblivion.. 

So, if you are so moved to write about an event in your life, please forward to Palmer Moore at Say Hello.
