Sasha Vitkovskiy showing the guitar on SkypeHey!

I was just about to fell asleep after finishing some really late meal having returned from Zurich to Bern when my Skype suddenly indicated an incoming call. It was my friend Sasha Vitkovskiy, guitarist known from the FFAD in Odessa project. He finally managed to get me here, even though I was expecting him to do this quite a few days ago.

Sasha has just got my guitar back from an expert who managed to do some adjustments to make it sound better, not to get out of tune every other minute and so on.

Sasha is proudly showing this poor baby right in the picture on the left. We didn't talk a lot though because I was really tired (and Mr Vitkovskiy can prove it, haha) and I have to get up early tomorrow as there's a concert in Zurich, which means it's gonna be a pretty hard day...

By the way, here's the flyer with the info: http://s-o-z.ch/download/flyer/flyer_A3_2Seiten.pdf (for those of you who'd like to come ;))
