Hey Taz, you still out there...haven't heard from you in a while! Wondering how that harmony is doing. I was in your neck of the woods last Saturday...stopped by the two small guitar shops in your town and they were both closed! Anyway, hope things are good...check back in with us in the archtop group! Edward

The Tennant book I have (Pumping Nylon) has some great exercises (some verging on torture at first effort!) that are sound practice for beginners who want good classical technique. The book does assume reading skills but not necessarily sight reading. Since the exercises are to be repeated often, you can easily memorize them if you can read them through accurately. There are some studies and more difficult reading later in the book, and some sight reading is hard to duck there.

A good teacher is a huge help in choosing and using the exercises properly and pacing your studies. I didn't get much out of the book until I had some good guidance. But maybe you're more systematic and patient than I am!

Very cool pictures of the Harmony! I am glad you got them posted. It does look like it needs some work, but before you have it refinished remember that refinishing will take away from the value. These old Harmony's are really works of art, made in America and with solid woods. I heard that the company is back (in some form) and offering a limited line of the old models...the Monterey may be one of them. There is also a few Harmony webiste out there that I have visited...pretty interesting. Thanks for sharing, Enjoy...Edward

Hey Taz, you have Moneray, wow! I would love to see some pics of it no matter what shape it's in. I have two, a 1955 Sovereign and a 1970 Broadway. The Broadway belonged to my Mother-in-Law who decided it would be nice to make it part of my collection...the Sovereign I bought at a local Vintage Guitar the time I didn't have an archtop at all and when I walked in and saw it, it caught my attention was in near perfect shape and had the original pickguard, which is usually the first thing to come off! When he told me it was all solid wood and made in the USA in 1955 I knew it was fate, because that was the year I was born! So I bought it on the spot. I also have a 1973 Sovereign flat top and, like most people, my first guitar was Harmony...a Stella. I also have a 1948 New York made Epiphone Zentih archtop. Here is a picture of the Harmonys all together...this picture appeared in Vintage Guitar Magazine a while back! Please post some of yours! Edward
