I guess my hearing loss may not be that bad. I can hear OK on the phone and needed the aids for conversation. I just couldn't hear well enough in meetings at work. The thing I noticed when I got the hearing aids just what I had gradually come to believe what my guitar sounded like. All of a sudden the mids and highs came alive! I am guessing your hearing loss must be pretty significant?
Hi, Phil. I don't want you to think I was putting anyone down for spending 3 grand on a guitar. Lord knows, If I lost one of my hands I would still buy guitars. I love them that much. It's just that I've known musicians whould risk eviction to get that "dream guitar." By the way, I listened to your music & I don't think you deserve the Martin as much as it deserves YOU. Thanks for the entertainment. I play live 5 nights a week, but after 36 years I still "choke up" in the studio. I can't seem to get perfect results. Any expertise you could share?
Hi there - pleased to be friends with you. I too love acoustic blues and have been getting back into it lately. Getting ready to take ownership of a new Martin 000-15M for my birthday. :) Would love to talk blues and music anytime.
I'm honored to accept your invitation to friendship Phil. When I read you blog honoring your wife, I was impressed that you're a man of solid values with a perspective similar to mine. Here's to fellowship in music.
Now that's spooky, this love will carry is also my second favourite Dougie song! I have wanted to do it live for ever but I get out-voted by others all the time. I heard that for the first time on Transatlantic Sessions and loved it straight off. He write great lyrics.
Hi Philip, thanks for the friend invite and the very kind comments, glad you like the music. In answer to your question I use several tunings including dADGAD but I think all the songs on this site are in C (that's eCGCGC to to bottom) which I was switched on to by learning 'Caledonia' by dougie McClean. Hope to hear some of your music soon!
