      I did.  It was John Jorgenson.

      The gig was a JJ Hot Band gig at the Iron Door in Groveland.  I went with Ken vande Kieft and Meg Eshom, who some of you might know.  Must be about 10 years ago now.   Brilliant show.  Afterward, the band lined up by the door to shake hands and say Thank You to everyone who came.

      I asked JJ if I could shake his left hand and let a little of that speed rub off.  He got a great big smile on his face and moved the coffee to his right hand.  He shook my hand, looked me in the eye, and said, “Sure!  I hope it works!”

      I don’t know how, but it did.  Maybe it was confidence, maybe it was asking the universe for something I wanted and then setting myself on a path to get it.   But from then on I believed I *could* do it.

      OK, I’m not JJ speed, and those Bluegrass guys kill me still.  But I go as fast as I want, and I know how to learn to get faster.
