Barking Spider audiences have grown accustomed since 1988 to Dover guitarist Gary Hall's monthly concerts. By the end of the night, the 59-year-old Vietnam vet has treated them to little-known ditties by Bob Franke, Kristina Olsen, and Don Schlitz. But don't get him started on the reasons why he hasn't recorded a CD of originals since the 20 tunes he put on disc for Well-Used in 1995. "I'm not a cover act. But I'm not all original," says Hall. "There's just a point when you're hesitant to reveal any more of yourself." The exception is at the Spider's open-mic nights on the first Tuesday of every month, when Hall passes on his know-how to younger singers and songwriters. "I love mentoring them," he says. "That's kinda the evolution of this thing." Showtime is at 10 tonight at the Barking Spider, 11310 Juniper Road. Admission is free. Call 216-421-2863.
