Hi Edward, appreciating your support and interest in the whole acoustic geetar thang I just had to mail you a link to my first review of the 'Renaissance' album. Joining AG Community was all part of the process in the final stages of producing the album so I'd like to thank you and all the friends who commented and sent encouraging messages. Here's the link -

Hope it works.

I like it. Two pickups. The Turner has one. Nice looking.

And I will join the builders group.

Thanks for the welcome to the Logic Pro 9 group. I could have sworn I was a member at one point albiet not a very active one due to my limited recording exercises. Oh well, either way, it looks like a very informative group.

Thanks Edward.  It is not really a rug.  It's a throw, but being the Beatle freak I am, thought it would make a good photo!

Hi Edward!
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 on turners and on the on case but need a magnifying glass to see them. ANY help you could give would be helpful

Hi Edward, I'm enjoying 'If I had a gun'. Great song. I really like the lyrics. :)
Take care,

I've been working on "Hello Woman" and should have something to send you in the reasonable future.

I'm new to the group.
Currently I only look, but I really like the group.

Thanks for the welcome Ed! I did upload one of my songs in WMV, its shown as an attachment to my post. Not sure if this the best was to go about that but I am "technically challenged".

Only got the 2 guitars a '73 D-28 and a Guild Starbust 90's reissue, that's what I play at home and on the road (gigs etc) also write with either.



Why the "S" on the '76 Martin?

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 again,

Yea that helps a lot, I understand solid wood that way just wasn't sure if it meant complete solid body or just real wood, Thanks a lot, I'm ready to go.

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.
