    Our praise team is working from home these days-- I am playing my 1912 Gibson A Oval. We each make a video to a click track so it is quite a trick to coordinate. Thanks for your time MC friends!

    The pick making business is not Eric's main day-job, he is a special ed teacher. For now it is his 2nd job/avocation. He makes the picks one at a time by hand so be patient.

    Re: Thinking About A Pava

    I went from an eastman 305 to a pava and the difference is night and day. Yes, the pava is much easier to play. It's got a more rounded V shape, not at all chunky like a Kentucky or Weber. It's also...

    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    Can't read a note, and I've never been great at memorizing. So I just work on learning a song's chords and improvise when I have to take a solo.
