Wow!

Re: Another slide guitar effort from the open mic...

That just sounds fantastic! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :drool:

The sound of that slide seems like the essence of the Blues. :bb:

Your singing is really getting better by leaps and bounds. :oldie:

Re: Pyscho Aesthetic Concept Design .. ermm .. WHAT???!!!!

My guess is that they are working at the wrong end of Maslow's hierarchy of needs. :whistle: They're working at the top of the hierarchy where higher level concepts such as self-realization exist (how you feel about yourself). :think: :wink: Real guitars live at the bottom of the hierarchy with the ...

Re: Found a temporary cure for GAS

Very beautiful guitar.

I got one a couple of years ago. Very happy to have it.

Very humbled that I can't play well enough to live up to it.

Re: Getting Together....

The excitement in anticipation of a visit with Golfxzq and his wife began building weeks in advance. We had a wonderful evening and just had the best time. Golfxzq and I had to be on best behaviour and not just dash off to the guitars as soon as they arrived. We got in a little playing but it could ...

Re: Ever wanted to fold up your guitar...?

About the only time I want to fold my guitar is after a particularly frustrating practice session. :wall: :angry: Then I want to fold it across my knee - not use a hinge. :yikes: :wink: But, of course, I would never actually mistreat a guitar. :naughty: :peace: I saw a review of these guitars some t...

Welcome, RobertLee. :welcome: There really are some terrific players on this forum - but there are also lots of us who are just learning. I'm 68 and took up blues guitar just over two years ago.

Re: Bending & Vibrato

I find this is a really hard thing to do. I studied HBL's old tune, Noodle Soup, where he opens with a slow bend and a beautiful vibrato on the end of the note. I've listened and played, listened and played, slowed it down and played, etc. - trying to match his technique - with some limited success....

Re: A song for 12 Bar

A wonderful piece of music. Rich in content and emotion. Deeply and honestly felt in delivery. The team's oneness of spirit and purpose is evident in the blending. And I believe it conveys the sympathy, honor and respect that our whole community feels towards Gerd.

When you read magazines about the design world there is always somebody with a new toothbrush design or a designer chair and these are supposed to be beautiful. But they are usually not. They are just weirdly shaped toothbrushes and chairs. But the classic shapes of guitars are truly beautiful. Deac...

Re: I Need You - Dedicated To The One I Love

Really good music L77S. I like the guitar work a lot and you voice matches the song well. When I started listening I thought I heard a lot of influences from the 50s. I heard a hint of Unchained Melody, Angel Baby, something by Santo and Johnny, a little do-wop flavor and a little of a lot of the ro...

Re: getting an acoustic

:welcome: to the site.

I've got a nice acoustic and I just keep a guitar case humidifier in the case. I also keep a humidity meter in the case. I check it every several days to be sure the humidity level is staying at the right level in the case. This system has worked great so far.
