Guitar Building Course.

For Christmas my wife enrolled me in a guitar building course at Woodcraft of Woburn, MA. I've toyed with buying a kit but after research I decided I'd wait until I had the time to dedicate to a project like this. This will serve as an introduction to building a guitar and from there I'll decide if I want to tackle another one in the future.  I've posted photos in my albums from the 1st night and I'll be posting photos as construction progresses.See More

"Vintage Taylor 1990's era 710 dread, with either a Fishman, or a passive KK Pure Western mini pickup. Also, I guess it all depends on what style of music you play. If I had the 3 bills to spend, at this stage I would be shopping for a fine…"

Terry Angelli replied to Wesley C Wilkins's discussion Hello from a newbie in North Carolina
"I have to agree with Derick's post (below) you need to sit with someone more advanced than you to help with your issues. As for the pick I recommend beginners use paper thin picks. They "rake" over the strings much easier but you…"

Terry Angelli replied to David's discussion Question about calluses
"Dell, I've been playing for over 40 years and you post about NOT having calluses is the first I've ever heard! As other posters noted here lower action, heavier gauge strings tuned down, good setup, etc. can help but NO calluses? Sorry to…"

What would you buy?

I have been blessed by my dear wife and mother-in-law with a generous gift for my recent 65th birthday. Between the two they ponied up $3K for me to buy a new guitar!

I already have a very nice Martin and wouldn't object to another but…

Christmas came early!

I've enjoyed working with wood ever since I took woodworking in High School. I've made a water pump lamp, end table, bookcase, hope chest and audio component cabinet through the years. When work interfered with my ability to spend time on this…

What a shame.

Today I had to take down a video I posted here called "Only Love" by Diane Ponzio. This video was produced in 1992 by myself and a friend who directed, co-produced and co-edited the piece with me. It was broadcast on my cable show which ran for…

Terry, nice to hear back from you. I've never used the Community much before, so I don't know what further treats await. I hope I'll get round to doing a video before too long

Thanks for the friendship. No, the parrot isn't mine, it's just a friend that I visit, from time to time, in the pet-shop where it lives.

Thanks Terry. You can tell I am a newbie just commented to myself! Get a blood test done to check your rheumatoid factor/level. Early detection can help or prevent twisting of your fingers. I've got or had a great rheumatologist but he's retiring in July. My fingers swell and get very painful but no twisting of my joints. Meds aren't fun but tried all the natural stuff but no go with RA. Fingers are so swollen today as it's 41C here!

Totally agree my friend.  I've always believed and lived by "laughter is the best medicine!"  8-)

Thanks Terry!  It was originally written just to test something, but it kinda grew on me and made me laugh, so I posted it.  8-D  Gotta have fun and laugh at yourself sometimes right?

Thanks for the add. I will let you know when I finally 'pull the trigger' on the Taylor t5 purchase.

Well, kudos to you for putting it out there....takes a lot of courage and dedication, and having a group of stars doesn't hurt either.

have fun!

Well, that makes you a real guitarist....and it sounds like you may have a good group on your hands.

Best of luck getting it all together and makin' music.....should be fun!
