DJ replied to Alan Cargile's discussion A Humidity Question in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Here is a neat thing I found about humidity and lamented back and side guitars with a solid top. The back and sides don't expand and contract as much as the solid wood top due to the humidity. High humidity doesn't cause as big an issue as…"

"This has been a reassuring post. I have tried many types of strings here is a list. D'Addario EXPxx Elixir Nano and Poly WEB Newtone Heritage Ernie Ball Aluminium I could keep going but its pointless. What I think of each is my opinion but…"

DJ replied to Derick Chatfield's discussion Thumb pick or not. in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I use a thumb pick when I need to. Playing acoustically with others I need to. I have tried a hundred different thembpicks and the ones I like the best are the one you bought. Slick picks are softer the others and fit snugly, I can even upstroke…"
DJ replied to Rex Edmonds's discussion Ever try Medium Strings on your Segull? in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I haven't seen many people speak of Newtone strings.  I think you might like to try the Heritage Series string. I wish they were coated as I live Minnesota and it is very humid here in the summer so they corrode just like other…"

DJ replied to Greg Ballantyne's discussion Mom - How about a Coastline Grand? in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Greg, Have you thought about a 3/4 guitar? Like a little Martin or a baby Taylor. Just an idea. They are small and easy to hold and yet have have good acoustics and playability and don't cost a mint. How about a small electric piano. Like a…"

DJ replied to Jud Hair's discussion My quick & unscientific 3-guitar comparison "Martin vs Taylor vs Seagull" in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I like the Seagull's sound for that piece best. Warm and full, mellow and sweet.  The Martin next, full bass tones and finally the Taylor. If it was me. I would play the Seagull for those songs that ebb and flow. The Martin when I needed…"

DJ replied to Joe Brancato's discussion Aluminum....not just for siding and TV-dinners anymore! in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I strung these EB Alumniniumiums. I did like the voice of them. Hard to discribe but different. Not like cheap strings or anything but a "country" flavor. Very supple string, bends like crazy great for blues riffs. I had a slight string…"

"Elton, I did the same kind of thing. I dropped a lapel mic onto my 25th Anni while I was casing it and put a little puncture hole through the gloss finish. Almost broke my heart. Asked many people about how to fix it, they all said don't.…"
