My meeting with Charlie Gacsi

Today I had the great pleasure of meeting one of my favorite Wholenote personalities, Mr. Charlie Gacsi. We had a nice lunch at the Olive Garden near his home, and talked about everything from politics to the environment...oh, and I think we may have gotten on the topic of music a time or two...LoL I had the opportunity to see and hear a number of his original compositions. He actually played a bit, piano and guitar, in spite of his injured finger. I walked away feeling as if I had gotten 6 months worth of lessons in the course of a few hours.

I just want to say Charlie is a gracious host, a true gentleman and as generous and down to earth a person as you could care to meet. He freely shared his musical knowledge, was supportive of what I am trying to learn, and gave me a number of tips on theory and technique. It was a most enjoyable afternoon. We took some pics, which we'll get up here ASAP.

It's a great experience to meet a fellow Wholenote member - I recommend it to any of you, whenever the opportunity presents itself. It's really neat to get a sense of who the person is behind all the words we see onscreen.

Darryl--

That's really great! A very nice pleasure, for sure and one that I would thoroughly enjoy. Since you guys are in So. Cal, I'll bet you'll be able to arrange it again someday. If I ever get there, I'll be callin' on ya! Most likely Charles, too.

And be sure to give me a call if you ever get in the Phoenix area...

Steve

Yeah, I think so....it's either him, or Bruce Maag. Since Bruce is now unofficially "retired" (or at least on a posting hiatus), Charlie has probably edged Bruce out.

Multiply my points by 243 and you will have my age. Or divide the number of lessons by 2 and you'll be right there. Just kidding. I'm 76 as of last July.

I think I have gained the most from this site as each question I answer triggers some type of a response and it comes out in what might be a new lesson some times.

Although I don't know what many of you look like, the interior of your personality is present, and full of welcome to all.

My political views are different from some, and others similar. Here is where I have always encouraged members to vote. Read and form your own opinion. I get oposing views and try to find the thread of truth in there somehow. I do want to thank everyone for their comments, as I do appreciate hearing from all anytime. Good or bad. Since I probably am the oldest member on WHOLE NOTE, I am entitled to express my own opinions. But the members do not have to agree. Never be a Yes man. Be yourself. Thanks again. Charlie

I surely agree with this.
Unfortunately most of us are very far away...
If someone comes to Portugal, please contact!
