    Re: Your thoughts on this old Kay?

    I second the recommendation by Mr. Garber to attend to the back cracks and leave the pearloid pickguard as is. In fact, I kinda' like the patina. Very cool guitar. It's a design that appeals to me...

    Make every other measure an arpeggio to give your hand a rest. The ears also like variety.
  7. Re: DGBE (Chicago) Tuning: A and Bb/A# chords are weird

    Not every chord needs all 4 strings. Find the best sounding partial chord that's easy to grab. Inversions up the neck may sound good too, but context is important.

    Re: Changing strings--winding and leaving?

    I like the method mentioned by Drew above. If you wind the string and then put it thru the hole, only a few turns of the tuner are needed.
