Joseph Anthony Zarola replied to Rob Darby's discussion Finger-pickin' Nylon! in the group Fingerstyle players
"Classical guitars do not afford the physical configuration to support fast, articulate finger style guitar….they just don't allow you to play at top speed with that firecracker snap that a steel guitar does….just saying… "

"Hi there. Sorry about the allergy! You might want to look for a Chet Atkins Nylon Acoustic in the future, if it is the strings that are an issue. The classical necks are cumbersome, and developing a quality speed finger style might prove…"

"Interesting read here. I used to worry about the cover presentations, until recently. I decided to go on a cruise-ship instead of performing at local venues. The local music scene here in East Tennessee has become very narrow, so I have decided…"

Joseph Anthony Zarola replied to Jud Hair's discussion How did you come to be a fingerstyle guitarist?? in the group Fingerstyle players
"Excellent for you! I am 61 now, and at 12, I sat in my garage in San Diego, without a radio, and just gravitated to "patterns" of picking, that fit the three or four chords I knew. 49 years later, like the root system of a still growing…"

Humidifix Guitar case de-humidifier.....finally a system that really works

With the permission of the moderators, I would like to introduce to the Acoustic Guitar Community, "HUMIDIFIX" a new "in-case" RH (relative humidity) ADJUSTABLE dehumidifier. This in-case no batteries, 7 year warranty system is a high-quality permanently installed "de-humidification" system for all string instruments. For the guitar, a patent-pending case compartment "vent" allows the owner to adjust his/her draw of H2o from the interior of the case, and guitar. An externally mounted analog… Continue

Hi Tony,
Good to hear from you! I think we traded for an old Dodge van. You needed transportation back and forth to work at the time. I still play a bit but not well. Just a hobby for me. I bought a cheap Blueridge D-45 knockoff from Saga some years ago and it works fine for my skill level. I just strum along with old Eagles songs and stuff for fun!

Bob Taylor sure has been blessed. He is legendary here in San Diego for the gifts he gives back to the community.

If you can provide any details about who may own your old guitar let me know and I'll be happy to try and help locate it for you. I always thought it was meant to be with you. My email address is sightler@live.com. Hope all is well for you and yours in Tennessee! My family has a lot of history there.
Jim

Hi Tony,
Way back when in La Mesa, CA I traded you for a beautiful guitar you built in Bob Taylor's first little shop in Lemon Grove back in the 70s. Some years later I looked you up and returned it to you. I hope life has been good to you and am curious as to if you still have your Zarola/Taylor guitar with the train inlaid along with your initials. I Googled you to Singing Strings and Crossville and finally here. Drop me a line when you can.
All the Best,
Jim
