I am looking for a copy of Ron Ickes Big Time tab book. It doesn’t seem to be available for sale anywhere online. Does anyone have a copy they would want to sell. It would be greatly appreciated!

Check this out. Maybe they have it available.

I doubt that they actually have the book on that site - I had a communication with them several years ago and it was an erroneous listing at the time. The book has been out of print for a number of years and the original Accutab guy, John Lawless, told me to get it back into print is a big deal and it would require jumping through a lot of flaming hoops.

It's worth a phone call to Play Better Bluegrass, but I would be amazed if the book is actually back in print. And if I'm correct and it's still out of print - I have no idea why they haven't pulled the listing off the website after the book has not been available for years. Seems pretty lame.

Hey, MarkinSonoma. I was in CA for my father's 90th birthday last week and was able to spend some time in your old stomping grounds, driving between HMB and El Granada. We had a great time there.

Glad you had a great time and how fortunate you are to still have your dad at age 90!

Half Moon Bay has grown quite a bit since I worked there from 1982-89, still a nice place - but it can get old when the area is on a seven day streak where you don't see a ray of sun. But it is one of the most favored spots in the country for growing container plants and cut flowers. 

And some of the biggest waves on the planet when they hold the surfing contest at Mavericks!
