How it works

Please look at my two lists below. One is alpha by artist the other alpha by song title. Pick something you'd like to learn and I'll do what I can to help you learn it. That means a transcription, a short video and email correspondence to help you out.

Welcome Mary Mac to the group! As I tell all new members have a look at my lists and send me a request. I'll do what I can to help you learn your selection. I already have several "lessons" posted here:

Welcome Rich McDonough! Feel free to browse the lists and ask for lessons to learn your choice. As Dave Finger said, the Seagull group is a great bunch of guys. I belong and I own a Martin (among others). There are also many other groups and all you need do is click the "groups" tab at the top of all pages and browse or search.

Rich - Join the Seagull group also, even if you don't own a Seagull guitar.  A great bunch of guys.  The topics don't always stay on Seagull.  It's the most active group on AGC.

Just joined,looks like a great group.

You know I never look! I probably should so I could pick up a beater to tinker with. No, no name change yet but we are within 2" of breaking a record. It's supposed to snow for a while tomorrow so we might just do it.

There are always some interesting guitars on Craigslist in the Boston area.  A little far for me to drive to look at them.

Did they change the nickname of Boston from Bean Town to Snow Town?

Yes I know where Wallingford is. I'm currently just outside of Boston.

I'm in Wallingford CT.  Ron Khoo (Seagull forum) lives in Danbury.  That's about an hour from me.  I thought I saw somewhere you're in MA?

Are you in New England? I lived in Danbury, CT for 12 years! Anyhow, that is steep to build your own guitar. I saw an ad on CL for a local music store that had an one day electric guitar building program for $250.00. But what kind of a guitar are you gonna wind up with for that short $? Especially considering that the store needs to make a profit.

No problem.  I still may build a kit someday, maybe in 10-15 years when I'm close to retirement.  There are places you can go and build a guitar from raw wood.  I know of a guy in Milford Ct that runs classes.  EXPENSIVE!!!  I think it was over $3000!!!  If I had cash flowing out of my pores I'd definitely jump on that, but we're smothered in bills.  I'll stick to fixing up junkers.
