Love my Seagull Maritime SWS SG. I have owned this beautiful looking and sounding guitar since July 2010. Sound gets sweeter every day I play it and that's usually every day. Had a Fishman Matrix Infinity Undersaddle Pickup System installed as mine did not come with the installed QI system. Since I've starting playing guitar (only 3 years ago) I have listed a Martin HD 28V as my dream guitar. Haven't got the dough together for that one just yet but if I ever do I am bringing my Seagull in to make a comparison prior to purchase. Has anyone purchase from the Godin store online. I was considering picking up a Seagull guitar strap but was wondering what the quality and fit was like. Can't decide if I would go with the black or tan strap either.

Charles ... suggest you also join this group specifically focusing on alternate tunings and pose the same question:






Comment by Guy Carlsen on November 22, 2011 at 9:41am

I suggest you check out Homespun Tapes

They have a great DVD Open D collection. I bought several of their DVDs over the years and find them straightforward and very useful.  They also rate them by player Level.

Comment by Charles Dupree on November 22, 2011 at 9:11am

I would like a CD that shows how to play open D I'm kind of slow so I need one that has like not for note or string for string.

The message to all group members will end up in their respective e-mail accounts, not the inbox here at Acoustic Guitar Community...

Comment by FloridaGull on November 22, 2011 at 9:03am

I've got all I can handle with regular tuning right now, thank you very much... ;-)

Comment by Jud Hair on November 22, 2011 at 9:01am

Aha ... so that's the process.  Well, in that case, I guess everybody got Charles Dupree's message ... so ... if you know anything about Open D tuning, he is looking for help.

For a "Private Message", you need to be friends.  But a group member can send out a message to all group members without being friends individually...

Comment by FloridaGull on November 22, 2011 at 8:52am

It's true!



See?  Going to see this guy...


Fun will be had... :-)

Comment by Jason Derrick on November 22, 2011 at 6:45am

I got the message too. I figured it might be spam (no offense Charles, if you're legit!) Charles, maybe you could provide some additional information that would better enable us to provide suggestions and feedback. Also, you might consider starting a new discussion.
