Great story. Its always intimidating to play in the company of those that are better guitarists but its all worth while in the end.
Here in Georgia most everybody I know drinks sweet tea. I like a big cup of coffee to start and finish my day and water during the day. A southern meal ain't complete without a glass if sweet iced tea though.
Congrats and HNGD! You got a great deal in a Taylor. I wanna see pics.
Listen with your heart and all of the annoying sounds will disappear
That or at least you'll be quicker to silence the noise because of the compassion for those that are making it. If it is disturbing your playing just play louder.
I've tried a few LAG guitars and they all seem to be great guitars for the money. Compared to my Takamine it is pretty close. I love the looks of their headstock and the tones of the solid top model is on par with my Takamine when it was new. Congrats now howbout some pics.
Re: QUESTION: What is your favourite acoustic album of all time? (14 replies, posted in Bands and artists)
Most anything Bluegrass but Doyal Dykes and Doc Watson are awesome. On the rock side id have to throw Clapton unplugged in there.
A lifted fret may be the culprit causing the unfretted buzz which is usually caused by climate changes that cause the neck woods to expand just enough for a fret to move. As for buzz while fretting it could be due to a neck adjustment. MkM if you've had your guitar for over a year it may be time to tweak the trussrod to straighten the neck back up. Another thing could be fret wear which can be releveled easily by a exprienced guitar tech.
The flatwounds are good for jazzy or blues types because they help produce a different sound so if you like the way it is now stay with them. I use round steel strings from a few different brands and they work fine. I favor Ernie ball slinkys and Dunlop DRs size 10-46of and they sound better for brighter sounding rock styles.
Nice canoe Pix. Believe it or not but guys around here make those from wood and put motors up to a 25 hp on them. They are mainly used in the river when its up enough to keep the bottom from dragging. The catfish is a nice one too but I'll take a stringer full if bream over one any day. Thanks for sharing.
That was good chevo. I've never heard of him before. Here's another one new to me or at least this one song. I think it good anyways. Great blues tone.

Is this still going around? I had it once when it first started up and would like to see what it has grown into.
I've noticed more spam activity since I started visiting regularly again. All of the mods are doing a great job of handling them. Keep up the great work guys and thank you for keeping this forum amongst the greatest.
Here's a capo/tuner that should fit the bill if you want to be a little spendy. Im thinking of getting one myself. Sorry for the link but don't know how to do pics of it like those above.
Good music is still out there, you just gotta look harder for it. Most of what is being pushed by the record companies is pretty faces with no true musical talent.
Here's one I just heard for the first time. ZZtop goodness.

The Fender sonoran is a fair guitar for a beginner but the Kingman is a little better since it has a solid top. Micheal Kelly made one a few years ago called the visionary series that has a variable set neck that made it very easy to raise or lower the action with just a turn of athe nut on thethe back odto the meck which would be great for going to slide height back to a lower playing height. Most people just use two guitars though. One for alternate tunings and the other for standard with both having different playing height. Hopefully this was helpful.
Spruce for me since it more strum friendly.
I've heard a lot of good things about those SilverCreek guitars and an awesome price for an all solid wood acoustic.
I'd love to see him at a bluegrass show. He has to be one of the most under rated musicians out there.
Sounds fun. Take some pics if you are allowed.
Re: thoughts on losing friends and missed opportunities (10 replies, posted in Chordie's Chat Corner)
I'm sorry to hear of your loss. You and the family are in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you for reminding me to catch up with some old friends. I think about them but never call or visit anymore and I don't want to regret it.
Most musicians aren't fully appreciated until they prove themselves with their own work. Keep at what you're doing and it'll pay off sooner or later.
Sounds like you had a blast. Your story makes me wanna have a campfire cookout this weekend.
