My brief background: Owned an inexpensive guitar for 35 years "played" it now and then over the years. Last August bought a new Fender acoustic, took some lessons, am teaching myself now and making…Continue

What does it really mean to "Jam" with other musicians?
20 Replies

Ok, as a spectator I know a jam is when experienced musicians, who normally do not play together, get together and play. My question is from being a beginner, if I were to sit down with other…Continue

As a beginner, I think it would be great to load a MP3 into a program then be able to play it hearing only the guitar. This would help learning strum patterns or lead. Then reverse it, blocking only…Continue

Difference in sound within the same model Seagull

I've had my sites on getting an S6 Original for a long time now and may be getting close. So a couple weeks ago I was in a Guitar Center (about 30 miles away) and played one. Boosted my "gotta get one" level. Last week I stopped in a local music store and played one and thought it sounded not near as good as the one at GC.Was my hearing clouded by my excitement of playing the first one? Or is it possible two S6 Originals, supposedly made from the same materials could sound that much…See More

My guess is shipping the S6 would be $35-$55, but I'm not sure.  I think the music store is willing to ship it, and I presume they know how to do it safely.  Go ahead and give them a call.
