Joe Carpenter replied to Todd Allyn Fleming's discussion natural nails are best in the group Fingerstyle players
"Hi Todd; While I'm completely in the same boat as you regarding using natural nails, I think whatever works best for someone is the real key. It's similar to the "thumbpick-no thumbpick" issue. ;-) Rgds, Joe"

Joe Carpenter commented on Dan Gabel, Editor & Group Publisher's group Fingerstyle players
"Nancy, absolutely you can fingerpick a 12 string. Take a look at Leo Kottke, Peter Lang, Leadbelly...and many others. Here is an example from Kottke (Killer tune to boot..."Air Proofing II):"

No, I've still got the Goodalls. This new Taylor is really intended to be a "travel" guitar, so I don't have to drag those high-priced Goodys around with me, plus the Taylor is smaller, so its a little lighter and easier to carry around. But it sure has a big voice for a mid-sized guitar.

Got a new Taylor yesterday, a rosewood and cedar GA7. Best description - a mid-sized guitar with a lot of sparkle and understated power.
I needed to stimulate the economy.
