Paddy Dargan replied to Mark D Hiatt's discussion The Name Game in the group Martin Owners
"As far as I know, the prefixes and suffixes on your guitar break down as follows: D= Dreadnought C= Cutaway 16= Style (Solid spruce top, herringbone rosette, Solid wood back and sides etc.) R= Rosewood (as opposed to the usual mahogony back and…"

Mark D Hiatt commented on James Sennett's group Martin Owners
"Some of it is just fashion, Michael. You get an "Alpha Picker" who buys a Brand-X guitar and that makes it a lot easier for a lot of people to get one, too. This is why the factories go after talent and give them all of the machinery they…"

Robert replied to Mark D Hiatt's discussion How Much Horsepower Do You Really Need? in the group General PA for acoustic amplification, voice, and small groups
"Hi, Mark, Just found this fourm so my comments may be rather too late, but, for posterity...   I understand exactly what you're saying and agree 100%.   The comments below are all very good (tho I'm still not sold on the Bose --…"

Mark D Hiatt replied to Antonio Eduardo Rosa's discussion Songs that make the audience join you to sing in the group Coffee House Players
"You have to look to your audience for this. What you want is something that everyone has in common. Well, of course, not EVERYone, but some goodly chunk of the butts in seats. I'm fifty-three. I know a lot of folk songs from the 1960s, because…"

Mark D Hiatt commented on James Sennett's group Martin Owners
"Tony, my first Martin purchase was about 14 months ago. So, maybe they treat first-timers a little differently, and after a while it calms down to just catalogs and certificates and tickets for the tour, etc."

"Another vote for "Blown Away" by the Martin Owners' Club. I wish Apple and Honda did something like this!"

Steve Widmeyer replied to Mark D Hiatt's discussion How Much Horsepower Do You Really Need? in the group General PA for acoustic amplification, voice, and small groups
"I play solo gigs in coffee house-size venues. For that size (and larger) my LR Baggs Core Acoustic Reference amp is spot on. 200 watts, two channels. flat speaker technology w/140 degree sound dispersion. I connect vocal mic (Shure SM58) and guitar…"

Ginger replied to Mark D Hiatt's discussion The Name Game in the group Martin Owners
"I think this has to be erroneous info with the Martin tho', because looking it up in my Martin history book (pg 84) they talk about the *new* dreadnaught model just brought out. The year is 1917 & the price for the guitar is $100.00 for the…"

"Those prices were from a long time ago in a galaxy far far away. Before my time anyway."

Gregg W. Jackson replied to Mark D Hiatt's discussion The Name Game in the group Martin Owners
""At one time the 18 line cost $18, the 45 cost $45." I've heard this about Gibson guitars (for example the J-45 originally cost $45) but not about Martins. When did a Martin 18 model cost $18 and a 45 model cost $45?"

Edward Sparks replied to Mark D Hiatt's discussion How Much Horsepower Do You Really Need? in the group General PA for acoustic amplification, voice, and small groups
"Yep, I agree with what Dave has to say...I play for those who want to listen and figure the rest are doing what they want and enjoying it. I have always played what I enjoyed and just hoped they enjoy it too, I don't do top 40 now and never…"

Dave Keir replied to Mark D Hiatt's discussion How Much Horsepower Do You Really Need? in the group General PA for acoustic amplification, voice, and small groups
"I'm interested in this since I will soon be getting some PA / amp combo for some gigs. In the past I have been inclined (and still am) to set levels no higher than that which is comfortable for folks close the the speakers / amp. It's…"

Mark D Hiatt replied to Addie Monroe's discussion Easy (G, C, D) Songs in the group Acoustic Newb
"Hmm.... I learned that one as G, D, Am7, and then G, D C. Raising that third finger brings you the Am7 shape, and reinforces the "A" tone on the bottom."

"Anything like that for we MacFolk?"

Mark D Hiatt replied to Gil's discussion Brand New Song: Disappear (R.I.P. Ben Keith) in the group Songwriters
"So, I'm playing this in my browser at work, and a coworker comes in and says, "Hey! That could be a good Neil Young song! But it needs a pedal-steel guitar.""

Mark D Hiatt replied to Jesse C. Greer's discussion Tuning with electronic tuner in the group Acoustic Newb
"Jesse, Mark Twain once said that "The man with a watch always knows what time it is; the man with two watches is never quite sure". Make sure that you tune when things are quiet--you don't want to fight the hum of the elevator in the…"
