"I was in the 60s folk scene, not in Greenwich Village but on the West Coast. I thought the movie was a really perfect recreation of that whole world.  I didn't know anyone just like Llewyn but I heard lots of stories about guys like that.…"

Sure.  Here's the website http://www.georgesmithluthier.com/,  I get the idea he's retired, but his classicals have been going in the $7000 to 8000 range.  The one I have was in pretty good condition, small crack along the pickguard - I'll let you know what it's like what I get it back.  It was $300 on Ebay.

I saw your comment on George Smith 12 strings.  I recently acquired one and I'm eagerly waiting for my luthier to finish the set up.   I wonder if you had any more to say about them.  I pretty excited, as I looked at George Smith's website, and it makes me expect a nice instrument.  Thanks.

Welcome to the Guild Owners! Now that you have your new 12 string you can enjoy it and understand why so many of us love them Guilds!

We're always learning. Doug Young's book is really good. I am spending time with it too. I really like the blues and jazz chords he illustrates. Plus i struggle with music fundamentals, which he explains well using DADGAD. His book was a real find.

Hi, David! Evangeline now has nearly 1,000 friends on AG; I'm looking for someone who actually knows her. Have you had any actual communication or exchange of information from her?

David, thanks for your comment on The Water is Wide. I love playing this arrangement. You can order the tab (probably in a book of tab) from the Ed Gerhard website. Ed is one of my favorite fingerstyle guitarists. Such tone and wonderful writing/arranging.
