Mark Barrett replied to Chuck Snyder's discussion Dry Climate: Guitar Cases and Humidity Control in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I think it more professional consultation. If one is purchasing an all laminate instrument which requires little maintenance ok. But the dollar value of a purchase is relative to a commitment. And professional advise should be part of that.....in…"

Mark Barrett replied to Chuck Snyder's discussion Dry Climate: Guitar Cases and Humidity Control in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)

"Generally I just try to get better :) Right now I'm trying to learn all the riffs for "Wish you were here" and learning "fishing it the dark" by Nitty Gritty Dirt band. I also try to work on the notes/riffs within "she…"

Mark Barrett replied to Jud Hair's discussion Humidity topic contributed by new member Robert Williamson in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I have been using the Humidipak system for about a year, and have not been impressed with their impact. Probably on an average I would say they have about a 3 - 5% impact as compared to the outside the case environment! that's about it. When…"

Mark Barrett commented on James Sennett's group Martin Owners
"I think a lot has to do with the improvements in engineering. Today the amount of wood used is calculated to closer tolerances to maintain production costs. Instruments years ago were built with not only with the preferred woods but a bit more of…"

Mark Barrett replied to Jud Hair's discussion Blind Comparison between Seagull S-6 and Martin D-28 on AGF (link) in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Agreed, and the fact that the two samples are so close is really something. I have an S6 and I have a rosewood Martin, they are different, the Martin isn't x better than the Seagull. I just tried to pick out the distinctive tone I feel the…"

"It's not an easy thing to find a guitar that matches your style, half the fun can be the journey though :) Try practicing an F sharp minor as a way to prep for the full bar F. http://youtu.be/WUPaN2W3e-E Hope that help."

Mark Barrett replied to Craig MC's discussion Another fabulous string giveaway! in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Finally had some time to play my guitar with these strings. I would say they are exactly what I needed. I purchased a D-16 a couple months back, even though it is a 2010 it had been played hard and hung out wet. Numerous issues including the…"
