Thanks for the friend request. I enjoyed your video, and I'm eager to listen to more. I've been thru Versailles many times, as I am a grad of Asbury in Wilmore. Enjoy...

Now for the fun stuff, yep I did that! It's not perfect, but as the Native Americans used to say, It wouldn't be for me then! I'm working on putting together my equipment, mixer, mikes, cabling, amps, a couple keyboards, one of those newfangled vocal harmony gizmos so that my caterwalling comes out in four part harmony, and more. I've built speakers, done a lot of high end stereo work, but never a sound system, so it's interesting and great fun. I've got several high end drivers and crossovers to build a PA also. The room is 20 x 30 with a 10 x 16 foot stage area and all the lighting is controlled by Insteon scene controllers. Neat stuff and easily programed. Took me months to do it all, one friend came and helped me a couple times and I don't do electrical work. But we're really happy with the results and now I have a great place to set up and play, without going through a bunch of set up everytime. And I know you can appreciate how nice that is. And people want to come play and that's the MOST exciting part. A little dream I've had for a long, long time. It's not big enough to cut loose on the 57 Twin but my Mesa Lonestar Special just shines so nicely in that room. The acoustics have a real nice woody sound too, better than I expected. I'll put up more photos soon. So nice to hear from you! JIm

Thanks for your kindness Dale, I'll be alright, as a W.V. friend of mine used to say, you'll be alright afterwhile. My Dad, just ran out of time here and had to move on. I'll catch up someday. He put up with a lot from me as you can see from my lifestyle, put me back together more than a few times, 24 broken bones, burns, crashes and that's the good stuff!LOL. I'll always be gratetful.

Hi Dale, Sorry it took me so long to get back. My dad died, got a new puppy, and just finishing up our bar/studio. It half killed me trying to keep up with everything but things should be easier now. I had taken care of my dad for the last five years and his dementia just got horrible. That was a bit rough! I'll try and catch up on all your fine work here over the next couple weeks. I'll be able to play more again now too and what a joy that is. Johnny A played local here last week and I missed it. Darn it! I've always liked that model Gibson, especially the better one. I hope you are good and that life has been treating you fairly. Your friend, Jim

All the best,

I just watched your video of "Silent Night", wich I did enjoy a lot.
Would you please tell me how that "baritone guitar" is tuned, and what string gauges do you use?
I play guitars, but I'm not aware of that particular kind, "baritone guitar". Anyway, if you care to know about a different kind of guitars, be welcome to my page, where you'll find a "distan cousin" of your instrument.
Congratulations for your nice performance!

Hi Dale, You're such an awesome player my friend. You're videos are so wonderful. They take me away to a better place and time. If I was as good of a fly-fisherman as you are a guitarist> there wouldn't be any trout left in the world. I had a 75 trout day in south-central Colorado and that wouldn't touch your playing! Too cool! Jim

Thanks for the comment. I should thank you. You were my inspiration to get the 35. I have become a big Collings fan. Now, if I only could play it a fraction as well as you do. :)

Hi Dale, Well I'm taking off for Colorado again on the 29th. and won't be back till 8/12 but yes, we will get together! I love to eat too. I would like to play like you can, but I am blessed in so many other ways, it is all good. I'll be doing some fly fishing, biking and I'm finishing a new building that I started during my May trip. And playing off course. Nothing like no background noise! I hope you are having a great, happy, peaceful summer. Get out there and wet a line man. You know how good that is for your soul too. Your friend, Jim
