"@ Jeff - I have a GPCPA1 with Fishman Aura system.  Briefly I love it.  It's the first guitar since I got my D35 in 1968 that competes, when plugged in, with the D35. I believe GPCPA1 is similar to JC-16RE.  People have commented…"

"@ Jud and Ian, Well getting closer on Old Laughing Lady, might play publicly in the next couple of weeks.  Played it with a friend at work and he thought I played it great (still no Neil Young on those beautiful base runs but closing in). …"

"@ Jud and Ian, thanks for the tips.  I just downloaded tab, looks great. This is what I think the alternate group should be doing, helping each other to learn new (well in terms of our playing) songs."

"@Jud, Embryonic Journey - just go to homesputapes.com and look for Jorma lessons on DVD, one of them has the song with excellent tab.  You just can't leave your house until after the snows melt (a Northern thought I know) but I'll bet…"

"I suggest you check out Homespun Tapes http://www.homespuntapes.com/ They have a great DVD Open D collection. I bought several of their DVDs over the years and find them straightforward and very useful.  They also rate them by player Level."

Guy Carlsen commented on James Sennett's group Martin Owners
"I have the GPCPA1 with the Fishman Aura system and agree with Jud, just sounds great when plugged in.  I have been a loyal fan for over 40 years with my D35 but if I'm plugging in the PA1 is the one I reach for.  I got it used via…"
