Hi Christopher I'm still felig alright I have some pains but I always do anyway.My head has'nt been thinking about it much I do a lot of thinking that I should record some music and just wing it.So hopefully I'll have some new music on there soon.take care Chris talk to you soon.
I have been using Logic Pro 9 since June 15th of 2010...I know that because it, and the iMAC, were a Father's Day present from my oldest son. I purchased my Lexicon interface first when it went on a great sale at the local Guitar Center...I had a vision I would set up a small home studio, similar to the analog one that I lost via divorce. I really wanted to set up a new one in the digital realm. SO, I already had loads of time logged in recording and knew how to work-around the limitations of 8 analog tracks. Of course most of my outboard equipment was now worthless! I set up the new interface on the family computer in the kitchen, which only served to get me started understanding the basics of digital recording. Then for Father's Day of 2009, my son set me up with a PC based system built from used computer parts which he put together and that really kick started everything, and we took over my wife's Guestroom. Did I mention I put my son through college (5 years) as a Computer Science major? He stepped right out of college and into a high paying programming job with full benefits! Then he became interested in MACS and had an incredible setup. I guess he saw me working hard, but struggling to use the PC set up, and so for Father's Day of 2010, he surprised me with a stack of wrapped boxes that all went together to set up the iMAC, a second monitor, and mucho software, including Logic Pro 9! I spent since June 2010 until now, learning the MAC and Logic recording my first 6-song EP CD, which I dubbed "Music From The Guestroom." Coming from the analog world, it is truly amazing! BTW, I drive a Kia Sedona van...nice to haul band equipment in! Edward
yes the bracing under the body top,I just got confused when you where talking about inside the the bottom with the 1,2 or three piece backs with the seams.LMAO I just realized what you were saying as I was telling you about what I thaught you were talking about.I have'nt had my Guild in a long time and it was a one piece back also.It was a extra deep bodied Drednaught,it had a beautiful sound.You just neededd a little more effort to playing it.As for the Scalloped Bracing I was havining a conversation with someone else and he or she couldn't visuallize what scalloped bracing looked like.I haven't been myself since I got some bad news on my health last week.By the way I was listening to your songs and they sounded good.what did you use recording them.I apologize if I just left you totally confused.
Hey Chris I was totally ribbing you on the Jumbo page .I really want to thank you for bring up that comment about that site being for jumbo guitars.Sometime I get carried away trying to heIp out people.So no hard feelings brother.
I have so many songs ,I just need to get off my ass and do it.My recorder died a terrible death,I'm still trying to fiqure out my new Digital deck it's a Zoom Mrs 802.I'll try and get more songs up.You don't have a Martin I see have you ever tried one? Try a D41 it will blow your mind.
Thanks for the thoughts and taking the time to listen to my music. I too, like Sunrise as it always makes me think of the warmer weather and summer. Thanks for your music and keep on picking and grinning.
I am up in Fort Mill, near Charlotte, NC. Instead of heading southeast down to Columbia, from Clarkesville I'd head up toward Charlotte on 85, then take the 485 (loop) around the south of Charlotte. Close to the same distance, anyway. I remember driving through Clarkesville, years ago, and when I visited your home page and saw where you were from it prompted me to comment.
Sorry it took this long to respond; I haven't checked in here too much lately!! Yes, John Denver was a HUGE influence. My first two concerts ever were JD, and he's one of the main reasons I started on the guitar. I wanted to play just so I could write songs like he did. 35 years later I still don't play that well, but I have written over 200 songsand had a helluva lot of fun. Thanks John, wherever you are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I saw your post in the 12 String Group and noticed you are holding a Guild 12 string...
I have a 1980 Guild FJ212XL. Anyway, we have a group here in the AG Community called the Guild Owners Group that you may be interested in joining!

Thanks for the comment, Christopher. I will be recording the new guitar with a friend who is a recording engineer/Pro-Tools whiz the last week of this month. So maybe early May? I'll have to put a lot of time in it to get it opening up. Oh, the Joy!
Thanks for adding me. Yes I am obsessed with my Breedloves especially my AJ25/SR Gilewitz 12.and my Pro C25 CRH They're my thunder makers. I'm definitely a rank amateur but I am improving with tons of joyful practice and especially with patient and knowledge guidance from Richard Gilewitz. I'd be stumbling along without his help. Love these forums that AG has made possible, although I mainly lurk about and contribute rarely.
