I am a player with 40+ years of guitar under my belt. I would love to pass on my knowledge and songs to younger players who have an interest in learning classic material.
Personally I do not have a lot of free time to dedicate to a learner but I am willing to commit to mentoring those who are willing to learn and are patient.
Hopefully there are other seasoned players out there who would be willing to do this as well.
If you are interested in learning or… Continue

The Vintage Guitar News and Views January Edition.
As with my peers concerning the state of today's guitar and vintage guitar market I will add in my own opinion for what it is worth.(no pun intended ). What I see is a halt to the sudden and rapid rise in prices that mint vintage guitars will bring in, such as those we have seen in the last 3 to 4 years and a slow down or market correction,which we are seeing today, not that these guitars are worth any less but rather a more informed… Continue

Hi, This article was very good and re-affirming on the acoustic situation on stage (God help us all). I agree with all of it, with some ideas and hints of my own, with the acoustic archtop guitar.
The archtop and it's style can be a little different "beast", but much of the same implies. I play solo, small group and with a 7-piece, loud Trad Jazz band (three horns). For a long time I simply relied on a mic. Not a big problem in a solo setting. In a larger venue with a soundman, even… Continue

I remember the first time I got a solid insight into the truth of guitar excellence, and found a reason to believe that I could become a great guitar player, even though I started late, and was meeting people who were far better than me, and also younger.
I was 21. Samantha was the best player at the Institute where I was studying guitar. She was getting rave reviews at Carnegie Recital Hall playing pieces I was struggling to get through at the time. I was very intimidated every time… Continue

Greetings, Friends and Fans.
After finishing up 2009 with a wonderful tour in Florida I’m home for the next few months, and thought I’d take the opportunity to do a little research regarding live music and its place in our busy lives.
We’re all so busy. We all spend more and more time on “social networks”—definitely networking, but how social is it? Likewise, we access music in so many more ways than live and up-close—we download, we trade files; once in a while we even… Continue

There a new group called "SE Pennsylvania, Delaware, NJ Players
" for guitarists in those areas. It'll be a nice communications forum where people can share places to play, where people are playing, meet local acoustic guitarists, share ideas, collaborate, and help and support each other.
Hope to see you there!

It is the first stage in the Inn strike this year.
At the Mito-city "Paper Moon".
Moreover, it is one-man live!
There seems to be a good thing this year.
I am very glad for a lot of guests to come to see my stage.
I seemed also to have performed by my best and to have strained myself too much by me.
Some.. tunes ..me.. ..the mistake not thought about...
However, it seems to have been able to enjoy it for guests.
I was feeling… Continue

I perform by the restaurant "Paper Moon" in Ibaraki Prefecture Mito City where I live tonight.
When performing, I use a new preamp.
This preamp was not in major name brands, and those who produced the individual by the living in Kanagawa Prefecture made it.
The brand name is said, "Enfini custom works".
It is a preamp that it is small, and operativeness is good.

As mentioned before I purchased a custom made Kevin Corcoran guitar recently. One of its features that make it stand up and sing is the cantilevered neck. This guitar is a OM model. The smaller size makes it much easier for me to play. As a female player this is new for me. I have alway bought a larger body guitar because I wanted the booming tone and projection. So a 16 inch bout was always the minimum. This guitar has change my definition of desired sound quality. ..Now I have to say the… Continue

We’re back from four busy days at the Winter NAMM show, excited by the fun of our 20th anniversary party with so many industry friends, and by seeing all the new gear that will be hitting the shelves of your favorite music store in the coming months. Overall, the show seemed busier than in recent years and the mood very positive, which bodes well for 2010.
A highlight for me was checking out the Paul Reed Smith event on Saturday night, where Tony McManus, Martin Simpson, Cody Kilby,… Continue
