Just five days left before this board shuts down forever. Come join us at Acoustic Guitar Cabin to keep the conversation alive:

Hope to see you there!

Hey All:

I just signed up on AGC Cabin and it has a link for our 12 String group as well as our small body guitar groups.

I hope to see all on the new site and we can still communicate.

Happy Strumming

Morning Ted:

Clyde here from New Orleans:

Sorry for the loss of your wife and unborn child, I know words cannot say how one feels in the heart but let me say that, they are both in heaven waiting for the day you will join them and become a family again.

Please keep the faith and your wife would not want you to stop your song writing and playing, I am sure she really enjoyed it tremendously.

I know cause when my mother passed away from Alzheimer's it was a hard blow for me to see her deteriate and you could not do anything to help her.

My Mother enjoyed me playing my Baritone Ukulele when she stayed with my wife and I cause it calmed and relaxed her.

Please keep up with what makes you happy and it will comfort you all the time.

Happy Strumming

Ted, I can barely imagine, but such a thing would have to be devastating.

Comment by Randy Lee Hano on June 15, 2016 at 8:11pm

So sorry Ted....

Ted -- OMG!  How awful!

I remember that after my wife died (pregnant) in a car crash in 1973 (which I somehow survived) I couldn't write a damn thing that didn't have something to do with her. My songwriting pulled off the road and decided just to stay in one exit.

See you all over there then!
