      "This Week in Fingerstyle"  on Spotify by  Daryl Shawn ! November 30, 2020 by  Randal L Meek "www.randalsview.blog" The end of November is here and the holidays are quickly approaching.

Succinctly, it's been tough to say the least! I admire the toughness, the resiliency, the generosity, the love and the caring shown by the musical world during this difficult time in history. Better days ahead! So, it's time for me to "raise the chatter" on the small segment of the musical world tha
