Tom H replied to Martin van Dooremalen's discussion Looking for contemporary hymn arrangements or options in the group Worship Leaders
"I have found hymncharts to be a great resource. I use the arrangements for acoustic guitar accompaniment all the time. The cool thing is, there are also charts for harmony vocals, strings, piano, etc. that can build on (and align with) the…"

Tom H replied to Dave Sterenchock's discussion Recording vs. Playing live. in the group Home Recording
"I've noticed it doesn't seem to be as big a deal with my audience as it is for me (when I record in such a way that I cannot perform live). It is not uncommon to hire others to play instruments you don't play (in my case drums or…"

Hey Tom - thanks for saying "hi" - it looks like we also share a common faith and always good to connect with a fellow believer and guitar player. It also looks like you've got a nice collection of instruments. How do you like the Baden? Take care, Ralph

I agree with you there! People say "why do you need all these guitars?" And I just say, like singers, they all have their own voice...
Although I have not played one, I really love the look of the Badens, and since my favorites are the jumbo" body guitars, I really like the jumbo he makes...I especially love the understated look and the way the cut away is designed. I don't think we have any dealers near me right now, but I am in the middle of the Baltimore/Washing DC Corridor, so it's just a matter of time! It's really great when something new in the acoustic world comes out and it's made of wood and not fiberglass or some other bulletproof material! Edward

My friend Steve's Breedlove bass is really loud too...often we rehearse without it being plugged in. If you haven't played one of the fretless ones you should give it try...great sound! You are right, it is a handful!
I get the Carvin catalogs and have always wondered about the Cobalt line, glad to hear you like it. Steve really, really wants a Breedlove guitar and is saving his pennies! My favorite acoustic is my Gibson J100extra, but I do have Martins and Guilds too and big or small I love them all! My wife calls them "the children" and tells everyone they live in the guestroom! Thanks, Edward

Hi a friend of mine has the Breedlove bass like you have the fretless (his is) or the fretted version...also, how do you like you Carvin Cobalt? Always been curious about them...thanks, Edward
