"Paul - love the idea of exploring the spiritual 'psychology' of the disciples. They all had their doubts, I'm sure, even Peter, who made that great confession (Matt. 16), but it is Thomas' account that is recorded. …"
"Clyde - welcome to the forum. I've played a few Yamaha's over the years and liked them (though not enough to trade in my Martin!). I bought mine in 1971 precisely because of that harp-like tone - I was singing solo then - and…"
"The ease of playing is what I've always loved about my Martin D12-35. I can play it all day without a problem. Much better action than the Taylor 6-string I bought a couple years ago. I did have the Martin's nut replaced…"
"Elton - I don't think 'Comin to Town' has ever been recorded, but I'll see what I can do.
Sorry to have been off the forum for so long - I'm staying with my Dad right now while we try to get him moved into a new place."
"I know what you mean about too little time. No Border Collies, but a Lab-Shepherd cross who's just a year old. Plus, I take care of my grandson 2 days a week. And we're trying to get my Dad moved into a new place -…"
"I'm FINALLY getting time to play it for a while...btwn work, Wife and 3 Border Collies, not too many "dull" moments around here. it must be wonderful to have a Wife who is also a musical partner. My Wife loves my playing, but…"
"Always good to make a new friend. My daydream now is to find a '68 D-35 to go with the 12 - a matched pair. Saw one in a music shop in Lebanon, NH a couple years ago but couldn't swing the $. Have seen several on Reverb.com…"
"A bit beat up - when I bought it from a little hole-in-the-wall music store in Lenox, MA there was a gouge in the lower part of the sound hole, probably from having a pickup installed, and a set of gouges in the back (big Texas belt buckle?), one of…"
"Oh, yeah. And 2 weeks ago, our postlude was an evangelical blues take-off on 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town', except it isn't SC who's coming. If we can eke out some practice time, the 3 of us are going to try to do…"
"This is turning into an acoustic guitar Christmas at our church as our keyboardist (with whom my wife and I alternate Sundays) is a paramedic and is pulling 24-hour shifts with the ambulance as a holiday gift to her co-workers so they can have…"
"My Taylor 6 is a smaller body instrument and 'brighter' in tone than my Martin D12-35. I tend to use phosphor bronze on the Taylor and 80/20s on the Martin.
Nothing wrong with a Tele or LP - have you checked out the Epi Ultra…"
Ours is a small church and the worship team basically consists of my wife and me - occasionally a 3rd and we're working to bring on board a guy who just started attending within the last year and, as it turns out, plays a mean…"
"For me, it goes WAY back. I was led to the Lord over a guitar back in 1966 at the age of 13. I played in church on and off over the next few years. In 1968, I was invited to become part of a southern gospel quartet and spent the…"
"Being afflicted with a mild case of GAS, I'd still have to fall back on my tried and true Martin D12-35. Especially if I were leading solo. The sound is so full and it plays so well....
Playing in a worship team, however, I might…"
I'm FINALLY getting time to play it for a while...btwn work, Wife and 3 Border Collies, not too many "dull" moments around here. it must be wonderful to have a Wife who is also a musical partner. My Wife loves my playing, but doesn't do so herself. She's a saint tho!!
Welcome to the 12-String group. I see that Phil Keaggy and Bob Bennett are a couple of your favorite artists...mine too. Keaggy is probably my all time favorite, but I can't play his stuff, so I try to play (mostly unsuccessfully!) songs by SC Chapman, Pat Terry Group, Jim Cole, Bruce Carroll, etc. I play a Guild 12 string, also have Yamaha and Guild and 6 strings.
