"Buying used can be especially thrifty when looking for guitars with custom work or named luthier models. Look for a collector willing to unload for a cash offer. Ebay can be helpful, if you are savvy enough to wade through all the noise. Elderly,…"

Hey Jim,
I know you like (as do I) Dan you play one of his called "Make Love Stay?" The original on the album was from the 80's and it is pretty upbeat...but his live versions were much more mellow and slower...beautiful really. 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
and there is also a CD audio version of the best of it. If you haven't seen it, it is a must have!
