Help Needed with Community

Does anyone know how I can contact AG for some help? I can't send messages (to friends) and I'm trying to start a new group but it asks for the group URL - I don't even know what a URL is! I didn't have to enter one when I started the other groups I have done. I tried CHAT and I looked everywhere but I can see no way to contact them to ask how to do these things!

Hi Michael

Some time ago you asked what banjo John Lennon started on. He started on a red Egmond Toledo P1 but he TUNED it like a banjo, ie open G. He and fellow guitarist Eric Griffiths went to learn the guitar but stopped after two lessons as the teacher was making them read the dots. they complained to John's mother Julia who could play the banjo and she offered to teach them the three chords to get them going, but of course banjo chords, not guitar chords. Soon afterwards I joined the Quarrymen having bought a banjo and John & Eric quickly passed on their knowledge to me. I never saw Julia with a banjo of my own, Whenever we went to practise at her house she always borrowed mine - see  photo on this website. Whenever John bust a string in mid-song, we'd swap instruments and before the next song started I would have replaced the broken string.

That's how it was ! -Rod Davis

Do you have a particularly high level of security on your computer?  You may have to allow a few more things from the AGC website to enable full interaction...just a thought...

It is a super guitar all around!  When I was shopping with money in hand, there were only two new D-18s in the greater Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill metro area ... one was at the Raleigh GC and one was at Harry's Guitar Shop.  I believe only the larger GCs will get them because the one over in Durham said they had none coming.  I put down a deposit just to hold if for a few days and paid a bit of a premium to get mine, but I really wanted it and didn't want to have to wait months and months on ordering one from Martin.  Good luck!!

Michael, not intending to blow you off. Away from AGC access. Please communicate directly with me in regard to the L-00 at: I have better mobile access than thru AGC groups.

Michael -

I just read your input on Tom's song.  Your comments/posts are always informative, interesting, and/or amusing - when I finally do put up a song or two, I'd be honored to have your feedback!

You would think "they" would have more important things to worry about - unemployment, economy, international political and economic issues, etc.

Maybe everyone should just buy a guitar, and mellow out... :-)

Hey - didn't want to join the Gibson group just to comment on what you wrote, but I agree with you 100%!  Have any of these government people ever even played an instrument, let alone a guitar?

There's no female jazz singer corresponding to your description coming to my mind right now. But I'll tell you if I ever find out ;)

Hi Michael!

I don't know much about cajun guitar or music. But if I ever get info that could interest you, I'll let you know. Do you have any further information about this Jazz lady? Any song title in French for instance? I'll make some investigations for you ;)
