Have you considered using an internet search engine?
Here's a page I found using google:

There are others, but I thought you'd get more satisfaction out of finding them for yourself.

Open G tuning, capo at the fourth fret.. get drunk and hit the damned thing..
Sometimes repeat, but in standard tuning and at the second fret.

The original question was "where've you been?", not "how long have you been away?".
A career in politics beckons for our Zak ;)
Good to see you back, mate.

Hahaha well I wanted to avoid needless self-promotion, so I'll just say I've been playing a lot, my band's CD came out in October, got a pile of great reviews, and the first pressing is already sold out. Our record label is very happy about it and it looks like they will be giving us some extra money to fund a 4 week tour across Canada in the spring with the Farrell Brothers. Aside from that I've also been recording with my pal Derek aka the infamous one-man-band act Bloodshot Bill, and I'm still working on getting a CD of my own stuff finished before the summer.

So modest - typical Canuck! That's great Zak. You're a great player and have so much knowledge and understanding of the great players - you deserve a ton of success! What's the band, the CD name and are you playing Toronto or Hamilton?? Let me know. Don't be so humble hahaha.

No, I never think of members sharing info on their shows and recordings as being self-promotion (like the spammers who just drop in here to advertise their wares.) I like to hear about it, and where I can get one for myself.
