(BTW - did you fix your PC/recording problems?)
I should be picking it up Christmas Eve, so it will be like a present.
No, I still can't record. I have kind of given up on that, for now. :wall:

Restoring the SG

100_0139.JPG The guitar on the left is my 1969 Gibson SG Pro. This was my first good guitar. I got it back in the middle '80's for $150. It had had a neck repair, Grover tuners, heavy metal pickups (it came with P-90's), and the bridge/tremelo was missing pieces. Over the years it has had several d...

Re: Asleep on the Porch

Sweet! :thumbsup:
Nice and relaxed, and lovely tone from your parlour guitar. Nice fingerpicking on the rhythm track, too.

Re: Standard tuning slide...

Thanks, 12bar.
12bar wrote:Great how you mix slide and fretted playing
Actually, the only fretted notes I'm doing are when I play the G chord. I fret the low E with my thumb and the high E with my forefinger. All the rest is slide.

Standard tuning slide...

OK, here's another one. Monday night we had a feller named Jeff sit in. We had no idea what he was going to play, but he said it was in G, so I thought I would sling some slide on it. (I can just barely play slide in standard tuning, and only in G. :roll: ) At the beginning, you can see me trying to...

Re: Not sure I even want to post this...

Thanks for all the kind words. :shy: I'm really lucky to have the band and venue that I do. I pretty much only pick up the guitar once a week at our Monday night jam. We are a bunch of close friends (band and audience) and have a great time together. This is the longest lived band I have ever had (s...

Not sure I even want to post this...

I have no DAW, or interface, so I can't play into the computer machine. The only way I have to share music is by video. I asked a friend to video this song Monday night and forgot that I had the camera on close up mode, so it is blurry. Oh well, call it an effect. :big_smile: This is our take on an ...

Re: Travel Guitar

Hope your family crisis turns out ok. Sweet project! I used to have an old John Mayall album, and on the cover he was playing a severely chopped down Strat. Looked almost like a Stienberger. (I no longer have the album... I sold all my whole collection last weekend) Yours came out looking really nic...

Re: Off limit or not ?

I did a self build strat from spare parts... Still have it and play it.
Here is an old thread, a bit tongue in cheek, about how I built it.
