    I played the National Anthem solo more times at college events and at a racetrack than I can count. Can't even guess how many 100 of thousand's people heard me over the years. I grew up in the Vietnam conflict era, and so took a poignant, lyrical approach to it, trying to paint the text, never deviating from the written notes. Weird and stirring, playing in a basketball stadium and hearing 10,000 people singing along. On the first anniversary of 9/11 I played it from my balcony in Germany.

    Just 'cuz.

    Keep it up, xjb0906!
