    I'd agree here. While Ashville is not my kind of town, you really would get a nice contrast with the beautiful mountain setting and modern hippie culture. Plenty of great bars and a unique people with just a touch of southern to it. Bring your patchouli and crafts though.

    Nashville is a hole IMHO and, yes, I have spent a good ammount of time there.

    Are you joking?? There are over 1,300 pickers alone that are looking for recording contracts! There's gotta be 50K guitar players here.

    I'm in Nashville but I don't know many Lovin Spoonful songs. I'll admit my deficiency and that I didn't get it. Sorry. What tune is that from?

    Yeah, there's thirteen hundred and fifty two

    And any one that unpacks his guitar could play
    Twice as better than I will

    Yeah, I was just thirteen, you might say I was a
    Musical proverbial knee-high
    When I heard a couple new-sounding tunes on the tubes
    And they blasted me sky-high
    And the record man said every one is a yellow Sun
    Record from Nashville
    And up north there ain't nobody buys them
    And I said, but I will

    Well, there's sixteen thousand eight hundred twenty one
    Mothers from Nashville
    All their friends play music, and they ain't uptight
    If one of the kids will
    Because it's custom made for any mother's son
    To be a guitar picker in Nashville
    And I sure am glad I got a chance to say a word about
    The music and the mothers from Nashville

    Re: Out of country visitors

    I've lived in Asheville and Chicago, and I would recommend both of them. Asheville is where I want to retire (if things don't work out in Germany), but Chicago is the place I'd want to bring people from out of town. New York City (where I'll be this weekend) is a completely different experience, and I recommend anyone do it at least once, regardless of any other cities he or she has visited.
