The LMOM replied to Jud Hair's discussion Is Open Mic in Some Ways Harder than a Straight Gig? in the group Coffee House Players
"I absolutely agree.  I always find an open mic much tougher than a straight gig.  You're unsure of the audience, there's usually a lot more time to sit there and stew and get nervous while you wait to play, and there's…"

The LMOM replied to The LMOM's discussion Guitar Modifications? in the group Walden Guitars
"Yeah.  I could have done a few more applications of the polish to get a higher gloss, but I was very happy with the level of shine it had so I stopped.  To me it had a bit of a broken-in "vintage" look and I liked that. I'm…"

Lee MacMillan replied to The LMOM's discussion Guitar Modifications? in the group Walden Guitars

The LMOM replied to Dave Word's discussion Strap Button Placement on a Walden Guitar in the group Walden Guitars
"I put one on my G570.  It was very quick and easy. I'd written to Walden to ask this very question because I didn't want to hit one of the neck bolts and got the information in a very nice e-mail reply directly from Jonathan Lee…"

Dave Word replied to The LMOM's discussion Guitar Modifications? in the group Walden Guitars
"That looks pretty awesome - kinda like a Eggshell finish. As far as modifications on the guitars I've done is a pickguard removal on a Taylor I'd once owned, also installed a strap button on pretty much every guitar that passed through my…"

Guitar Modifications?

The LMOM commented on FloridaGull's group Walden Guitars
"Hi, all.   I've been lurking for a little while now and thought I'd just say "hi" and introduce myself.  I've had a G570L for 3 years now and I still love it. I bought it as an inexpensive guitar I could use…"
