Topic: This looks promising

Taylor Swift playing Joni Mitchell in a movie. This holds promise.

Question. Joni Mitchell played Martins; Taylor guitars weren't invented yet. Taylor Swift is a Taylor guitar player. I'll bet there are some conversations going on about this. For music purposes, you could shove a Rogue guitar into TS's hands and the results would still be great.

Very cool!

I think it's great that they're doing some biopics on these iconic ladies, and using a real musician instead of faking it with camera angles is a real plus. I'm sure Ms. Swift will do just fine with a Martin. When I think of Joni Mitchell (good Canadian gal, I have to say) these two tunes come to mind. I saw her perform in Toronto in the mid-70's, and these pieces were very well executed:

"Just Like this Train" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Woo9SpT … feature=kp

"Down to You" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrZXjBdLI4w

It'll be interesting to see how Taylor does with Joni's incredible vocal range.

Re: This looks promising

Nothing wrong with Rogue guitars.

I'm thinking TS probably has some sort of agreement, contract, or something with Taylor guitars. Seeing her play a Martin might be cringe-worthy in the Taylor guitar camp.
