House of the Rising Sun, AGM issue 274 question

I love Dylan's rendition of House of the Rising Sun, but I'm struggling taking the 6/8 from the page to my fingers. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks much in advance! See More

"I just purchased a used 2004 HD-28, which is in excellent condition but if I had one quibble it would be that I think it was in or frequently played somewhere where there was smoking.  I am keeping it in the open for the time being.  I…"

Taylor Guitars - Bob Taylor making decisions LIKE A BOSS

Good business stewardship of the environment, good treatment of people.  I just love the different ways certain luthiers are focusing on sustainability and doing business the right way, and I can *guarantee* this will be a significant consideration the next time I am in the market for a guitar.

+1 Bob Taylor.

Is this site done? If so, where did everyone go?

When Acoustic Guitar Community launched, I was very excited to find a guitar community online with so many tools and so much potential.  Really, it is quite a thing to have such a fully featured social community site dedicated to all things acoustic guitar.  But besides Acoustic Newb, a lot of the activity seems to have left the site.  The last Acoustic Guitar blog post on the main page is from the middle of February, and the groups I belong to that in the past this time of year have been…

Where are all the G+ pages?

I've started to take advice about how to build up activity on Google+, which I would like to do not just for its own sake but because I think I'm really digging the UI and I'd like to keep working on it.

So I create a circle for guitar stuff - luthiers, manufacturers, other companies or individuals that might have a G+ presence --  and I head back to the search box to look for guitar pages.  And I find some.

Jim,

Saw your post on the Newbie group. Bring Your Art & Lutherie on over to the Seagull/Godin/S&P group if you like.

Recommendation for your daughter - anything Godin and small - Seagull Coastline Grand, Art & Lutherie Ami's, Simon and Patrick or Norman Grands or Parlours (if they have them...).  Don't get a painted one, IMHO - kills the tone.
