Actually my lap steel is brand need, so maybe we'll learn together. So far I'm doing the C6 tuning since everyone says its worth the learning curve, but I'm thinking one of the more conventional open tunings will get me up and running sooner. I wish now I'd gotten a six string... The extra two strings kind of complicate the learning process,for me. Anyhow, I'll let you know if I stumble on anything worth repeating. Being used to those national picks should really help you out!
Hi Edward, same here with my album - I'm way behind the schedule I had planned. But nearly there now. Lost a few months - with a saddle problem, then broke 2 fingernails in succession, then decided to use different strings than I'd used on the demo versions because I thought they sounded better. I recorded 5 tracks then changed my mind and decided I preferred the sound of the original strings! ...what a carry on. :) Got 10 tracks complete now, only 2 to go. All drafts are up on my music player.
Hi Edward, Thanks for the warm welcome to the Martin Owners group. Think I'll pass on the Logic Users group for the time being. I've just about finished my Geetar album and just know that dipping into Logic Express a bit more would take away time from completing the album :) I know I'd probably pick up some tips for improving the sound I've got now, but it's a never ending quest isn't it! I'll probably join early 2012. I'll keep in touch. Cheers. Chris.
Hi Ed and thanks for making me feel welcome
I have been to Macon many times but not sure of the town you are talking about. Ed would like for you to take a look at the pic. on my page of the "old"??? guitar and case that I got on eBay. Would like to know if anyone could reel me anything about it... as there is no name..name on turners and on the on case but need a magnifying glass to see them. ANY help you could give would be helpful
I absolutely agree that Ken did a great job-I think this version sounds really good. I hadn't thought about it before but you are right about the phrasing being similar- I wish we could have been in the same room doing it, that would have been a lot of fun!!! He might be coming to visit a relative in New York City at some point-I hope I will be able to go meet him there if he does that. Thanks for taking the time to listen and offer feedback-your input is always appreciated!!!
I have not forgotten about "Hello Woman"-I was "playing around" with it last night actually. It has been a busy summer and I really haven't done much recording but it's time to get back to it and that is first on my list.
Hope you survived the hurricane. We did but many students and staff that I work with literally lost their homes. I spoke with one of our other psychologists yesterday and we are going to make ourselves available to any student who might need some support as soon as the new school year starts (Tuesday).
Thanks Edward, Great info, 1 stupid question, what does solid wood mean and as far as price I have to say I'm not rich but I have a small inheritance from my sister that means I can spend a pretty good bit, as for my Sigma it looks like it is on a showroom I didn't play it for a lot of years but now I've played it everyday for a year but I take really good care of it, I was proud of it until read inside it made in Japan that kind of disapointed me but it still sounds great so I have to get over that, and I will never get rid of it. I started playing so late that it will never look like willies guitar so it will be left to my grandkids. Thanks for all your help. Dave.
Good morning Edward, its David Richards, I've been at this guitar training for a year now and am pleased to announce that I'm beginning to play some songs, I consider this no less than a small miracle. Now I want to upgrade my guitar, I have a sigma Martin and I love it but was wondering if you have any suggestions. Thank you.
Thanks for the comment, Edward. Visit my website at http://benjimartinmusic.webs.com. Here is a bit of a head's up: I have some really crappy demos uploaded there but I plan to record and upload some better ones soon.
Sorry for the delay, been away some. The higher one gets the colder and dryer the air is. I've never seriously considered taking one very high. I have seen a few Martin backpacked guitars, but the weight and space needed were just too much for me. I wonder how a Rain Song product would do?
Thanks for the note Edward, always a treat hearing from you.
