Dennis replied to Rudy Ray's discussion Scratch Repair
"I suggest that you e-mail Seagull and ask what they recommend for sealing a scratch. CA glue ("superglue") is replacing clear nail polish as the favored scratch touch-up, but it should be the slower kind that isn't an instantaneous…"

Dennis commented on John Michael Meehan's group Baritone Guitar
"My Alvarez ABT60 has arrived.  I ordered the Alvarez to experiment with before sinking big $$ into a baritone.  For embarassingly under $400, this is the guitar bargain of the decade; sounds and plays at multiples above its price point;…"

Dennis commented on Curtis's group Slack Key Guitar - Ki Ho'alu
"I think your best bet is to just go through the listings on Dancing Cat and Amazon. There aren't a huge number of slack key albums so its not as monumental a task as it sounds."

Dennis replied to Curtis's discussion new group - slack key guitar
"I'm long time classical player but brand new to slack key playing (loved it for 30 years).  Let's hope the group grows. I'll ask the first gear question: Are any ki ho'alu players are playing baritones?   I heard a…"

Dennis replied to Ben's discussion Struggling to play barre chords on the LKSM Taylor 12-string. Need advice
"If you read notation, I suggest you get a technique book (look in the Classical section) that you can work with that has barre exercises.  It's tedious, but persistence doing drills is the key. Getting a "GripMaster" squeeze…"

Dennis replied to Curtis's discussion Slack key and high e string too close to edge
"Try a heavy gauge E1. Or try a few different E1 strings.  Or both. Modifying the nut would be my last move.  Did you switch to a different kind of string just before this started?"

Dennis replied to matt's discussion Ebony finger board - to treat or not to treat
"Don't use boiled linseed oil. It's is a natural polymerized finish, not an wood treatment. It's the base for "hand-rubbed oil" and "danish" finishes on furniture, or for thinning oil paint.  It dries…"
