I beieve I paid $160 in 1982 for an Aria (still have it) and must have paid something for the Yamaha FG150 (I believe) that I got from a friend prior to the Aria, but that woulkd have been in 1976, don't know what they were new then. But then that Yamaha wasn't new in '76 either

Went to a 2-hour workshop today with Steve Baughman not knowing what to expect, and it turned out to be a very cool lesson on using Orkney tuning C-G-D-G-C-D. Talk about funky new age sounds and harmonics.

It was difficult for me as my left pinky finger (used an an awful lot in this tuning) is my weakest on an already arthritic hand. But, learned a lot and look forward to noodling around with the various chords.

Particularly loved the open and deep C on the 6th string. It's the only alternate tuning I have tried other than a passing attempt at dropped D. The neat thing is how rich you can make a song without a lot of work; as in lots of chord switching and fingering in standard tuning.

my first guitar was some no-name that had one of those steel floating bridges attached the strap button. At some later date, I bought a rosewood classical bridge and converted it. I guess I had read up on scale lengths to get placement right,,? 1960 or so ...hell if i remember..:)

Jud...I didn't hear that about John P....crud !! Sending healing thoughts his way.

Great song tho.

I looked back in my notes, and saw my '68 Yamaha 12 string listed at $149 back then.I'm sure I didn't pay list for it. Guess I had semi-expensive tastes back then too.

I paid around $19 for my very, very first guitar ... in 1964 ... down in the border town of Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. It twarn't much but it was mine ... :-)
