"I have been looking at the REVO Exotic Wood straps lately. www.therevonation.com I  know they are expensive, but they look so different and cool. I like a strap that defines who you are. Michael"

"@Ian - the only thing that pulls those two things together is time and energy. It has taken me years to be able to play and sing freely. I was always a singer first. The big advice I can give you is just do it anyway. Unless someone is lining up to…"

"I've been stuck on Bill Withers for a while now. Some Sunday morning Blues show came on the radio and played "Use Me". I was so stuck on it. Just two chords with a great bass line. E7#9 to an A7, but because it is down the neck at the…"

"I know most of you are probably much more experienced that I am, but I have to lend something to that WIld Canadian Cherry. I've played guitars all around the world in my travels with the military and the S6 hands down blows them away…"

"Now you guys might have read this from me before, but I have noticed a huge difference in the Gulls. Especially when playing one at stores. I know, I know, I know, the strings at the stores are old and people miss treat them, but I have to say that…"

Michael Swift replied to Jack Brown's discussion S6 vs Maritime Unplugged???? in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I haven't played a Maritime, but I know my S6 is very loud. As for tone, I love the low in the S6 gives you. I like feeling it when I play. I put a standard K&K pick in my S6. Very easy to install. Three plates mount under the bridge inside…"

"I have a similar experience with my Seagull S6. It is an original S6 but doesn't say original on the label. Everyone always tells me how loud and clear it sounds. I love it! Absolutely my favorite guitar to play."

Michael Swift replied to Jack Brown's discussion Performer and Natural Series in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I use an  original S6 (not the labeled "Original") with a K&K pick up for that same situation. I find the Wild Cherry and Cedar top gives a much fuller sound especially when Capo'ing, the sound doesn't get too bright as…"

Michael Swift replied to Jack Brown's discussion Performer and Natural Series in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I will tell you, I have an actual original S6, not the one that says "S6 Original" in the sound hole and the biggest thing I have notice is the pure sound volume. The others play pretty well. I don't always like the electronics, but…"
