Hey, man, it's good to see you're still kickin' it! How come you snubbed Jimmy Page in your bio? I seem to remember you taking your guitar everywhere with you and more often than not (during that period anyway) you were playin Led Zeppelin, including the apropos Good Times, Bad Times. Keep it up!

Howdy Neighbor,
Did you ever play at Springers in Portland in the early 70's? I sang there a few times.
I like your music!

Hey Orvil, my brother took his son to your clinic and pointed me to your web site that brings back great memories of taking lessons from you when I was a kid in the '70s at Village Music and watching KICK play "She's a Woman" through the Bottle Factory window in Stayton. You're still my #1 guitar influence and I'm really happy that my nephew is now listening to you play so he can pick up as many tasty "Orvil licks" as he can like I tried to. Your new stuff sounds great! Respectfully, Dave Gilberts
