    In the late 70s I was owner of a Fender guitar called the Hand-Carved LTD Archtop. The LTD was an produced for just a few years, built by a couple guys at their shop, under the direction of Roger...

    Wow, those were some good days back on flatpick-l!! So far back I couldn't even put a date on it. It seemed so leading-edge at the time LOL.

    Re: Rockin' the Dulcimer!

    I have a gifted musician friend who used to plug his Appalachian Dulcimer into a small practice amp and crank out The Star Spangled Banner a la Jimi Hendrix - it is a wonder to behold!
  6. Re: The Guitars (and Mandolins) of Ken Burns' Country Music

    What has amazed me is the number of Fender Shenandoah guitars (with the Stratocaster-style peghead) that keep popping up. I didn't know anybody except the VERY young Neil Diamond ever played one of...

    Re: Eastman ERM El Rey

    Another helpful tip re: rewiring archtop instruments - surgical tubing is a great way to fish things into a hollow or semi-hollow instrument. 2-foot sections of surgical tube, one for each pot. The...

    I have a friend who is a prodigious guitar player and top-notch guitar tech. He was on the road maintaining Nugent's Byrdlands for about five years (MANY years back), and spent a lot of time then and...

    It looks nicer with the Tone-Gard removed, but sounds a lot nicer with it on.

    Re: Smoothing out a Blue Chip

    Some years ago I bought a pack of super-fine fabric sandpaper at the auto parts store. They aren't big - probably 3 x 5 or something like that - but 800, 1600, 2400, 3600 grits. I've used them for...

    Re: Non Mandolin Jazz

    Thanks for that post, Alan. I've got several Kenny Burrell discs, but not this track. I've got one disc of Kenny playing solo guitar. Just sublime.

    Re: The Jethro Burns Lessons online

    Nice to see this are still out there and available. YEARS ago when these first surfaced, I created CD covers with track listings for all the lessons. I just checked, and miracle of miracles, PDFs of...
  17. Re: April Jazz tune of the month: What is This Thing Called Love?

    Great playing, David. I need to spend a lot of time with this tune and also get busy and figure out how to record something.

    Sounds great, keep it up!
  19. Re: April Jazz tune of the month: What is This Thing Called Love?

    I really wasn't trying to give you credit for it - I should have said "The approach you describe." The players who really knock me out - Zoot Sims, Stan Getz, Don Stiernberg, there is no evidence of...
  20. Re: April Jazz tune of the month: What is This Thing Called Love?

    Your approach sure seems to lead to richer more melodic improvisations. Often you can tell when somebody is running scales. I've heard a lot of 'solos' that sounded more like arpeggio exercises than...
  21. Re: April Jazz tune of the month: What is This Thing Called Love?

    Another nice version by Nat Cole, in the same key as the notation provided above. Great guitar work here, and of course great piano.

    I am in the same boat re: reading music notation. Maybe once I retire (again), I'll have enough available time to get past the mental roadblock. Tablature, however, is another story - and it has...
