"You can always add a touch screen monitor later. It has more to do with hardware than OS. X2 also supported touch screen."

Attention SE Pennsylvania, Delaware and NJ guitarists!

There a new group called "SE Pennsylvania, Delaware, NJ Players" for guitarists in those areas. It'll be a nice communications forum where people can share places to play, where people are playing, meet local acoustic guitarists, share ideas, collaborate, and help and support each other.

Hope to see you there!

Hey John, My group is actually Logic Pro9, an Apple product, not Pro Tolls, but I see you are using Sonar...not used that before...I guess you are happy with it though since you have used it a while! Thanks, Edward

Hi John

Thanks for the comments on scooterville,,,

regarding the tone bars   ,, I use a Dunlop Lap Dog ,, I think the model is ,, ( dont really get much choice around here),, tho I do have a Titanium bar Tim Scheerhorn gave me when I was over there ,, very light and for the right pieces ,, very fast and quite different sound

Hey John,

Just added a new song to my song list!  It's a bit "heavier" than my usual fare!  Hope you like it...Ed

Here's a link to it in the Songwriters Group...

G'day John ,, thanks for the tip I might look out for some semi flat strings ,, esp for the Weissenborn ,, I think because it has a more delicate sound the string noise is more prominent

Hey John,
Just joined this site yesterday and surprised to see some people with Madeiras. I have a 70's A30R that was my main guitar until I bought a Guild G37 in 09'. Your collection is amazing. I am more of a recreational player who does the occasional open mic.
