Kirk,

Are you a novice player? If so, is the guitar in tune? If you have trouble checking manually, an electronic tuner would be a good idea.

Much love,
Larry

You could take it into any music store and they're happy to tune it for you. They'll show you how too.

Kirk,

Yeah it's a great place and great guys running the shop. Absolutely wonderful friends and they really know their guitars. Both of them have played professionally and can still make a resonator absolutely cry!

Go down there and have a look yourself if you want - they have my guitar on the wall there. But then I would have to do the sale through them and all the commissions and so on would apply.

Much love,
Larry

from bikes to guitars \:\)


It's still nice here, til this weekend, then the rain comes back, but I've got two flat tires on my old schwinn.

I've got a Ric, the 620 or 650 (?), it's the "crest of the wave" body style, and a Squire strat, and an Ovation 6-string acoustic. Oh and an Aria classical that needs repair, and a Hondo "les paul" (can't part with anything-my first electric guitar, $199 in 1982) I'm thinking I need to take lessons and learn something new. I play the same stuff all the time.

Never played a dobro, they're amazingly loud for an acoustic.

Now I need to take a piece of wood and make it sound like the railroad track, but I also had to make it beautiful and lovable so that a person playing it would think of it in terms of his mistress, a bartender, his wife, a good psychiatrist - whatever.

Jay,
Just fot into these postings. I LOVE biking. The weather here still makes it possible to go out one or two more times. What do you ride? Do you road bike or mountain bike, or both? I like both but my first love is to my road bike. Always good to talk to another biker. My experience has been that bikers are really good people! Just had to put in my two cents.

Well yeah some of them are good people, they just look rough. Some of them are complete assholes, like take for instance... my old man. He's been a biker for as long as I can remember. It's kind of funny because I ride with some of the same guys that he does sometimes, ya know the Sunday tour thing. We all get along really good but it's kind of a joke with them that when my old man is involved in the run, I'm not and when I am, he isn't. They have no idea why though. It's a wierd situation. Oh well. My bike can blow his away, lol. I now have an 06 Harley Fatboy, barely street legal lol, gets a lot of attention from the cops and the girls! lol She's very loud and very sweet. Not real comfy long distance but great around town. I had it customized a little bit at the shop and had our paint guy do a nice job on the tank, bright black metalic.
The weather here will probably cooperate for a little while more too but I don't take any chances. First sign of Winter means she's stored, that's it. \:\)

Jay,

That's so cool you take such good care of your bike. I'm like that with my guitars. I take them out of their cases, polish and check them, even talk to them lol.

Talk about issues!!! \:D :p :rolleyes:

Much love,
Larry
