"FG I was trying to be encouraging -- LOL.  Gulls and Owls are birds and so those critters are hybrid gulls (or OWLS)."

Hi All. I am pretty much a beginner in my playing skills but have been interested for a long time and have made some half hearted attempts in the past. this time around however things are starting to click and I am feeling much more confident. especially after figuring out that I don't have to understand it all all at once. it is working out much better working on specific skills and issues and then hearing and seeing things get easier.

"GREAT choices on your martins! Does your D16 have the aged toner top? Wish mine did! I have a D12-16RGTC that is #166 of 200 that has satin rosewood back and sides with a couple of other tweaks that was commissioned by Guitar Center in 2001.…"

"Hi Jim, I have heard of these as well, although I have never seen one. Given the known quality issues Martin were having around this time the chances are the LD-18s were superior to the D-18s made at that time. I am speaking as an owner of both…"

Day 15: The end is near. I can smell it.

Shin Ichikawa and I started the day by fitting and glueing the back binding. Last night's fitting of the top binding was tedious, but the tricks we learned made the fit of back binding go smothly.
