"Thanks Michael. I had posted something here but saw it was the wrong place to post. Here's a neat view of the neck block using an iPhone....check the hide glue....plenty of dust bunnies in there too!! LOL
"I agree with Ken....it amazes me, and I know just a couple people who, like you, no matter how much they have on their plate, seem to be always taking on new projects. It's definitely a big part organizational skills, along with a love for what…"
"It is...I am working on two books right now and I got this midi guitar and so I have been so engrossed in using it in my studio that all else is falling out of mind! It's crazy to get so involve that nothing gets completed or takes forever! My…"
"Here's a closeup of the fret inlays. I noticed it was starting to dry out, or had, so I used some "Fret doctor" after a lot of research, which is bore oil, and it seems to be much better now, but I didn't have time to take pics.…"

Greetings James...so sorry I won't be able to make to Newnan this weekend, gonna spend time with my daughter and grandkids from Alaska, have'nt seen them in two years....you guys have a great time.
Hi James......working on my schedule today to see if I can make arrangements to be in Newnan this Saturday for some front porch pickin'. I think it will work out, if so,I'll let you know by Friday.
I know you like (as do I) Dan Fogelberg...do you play one of his called "Make Love Stay?"

There is a live DVD he has out that is really incredible, but the best part in my opinion is the acoustic set he does in the middle of it...really great. He even does a fingerpicked blues tuine that he plays slide on...not typical Fogelberg! It is called
"Dan Fogelberg Live: Greetings from tthe West
