    The Pinky G, what a great thing! not only will it make transition easier for some chord chord changes but it will also help strengthen that little left finger. This will also help my piano playing... Thanks Marlene!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
