    A full body archtop really is an entirely different beast (can't speak of classical guitar here because that's one I don't play)and a lot of playing fun.:)

    Whatever it is that you're playing, Matt, I ask that you continue doing so!

    That last bit you posted blew my socks off! I finally found then dangling from a ceiling fan about three days later, but no big deal: I have more than one pair. :laugh2:

    Keep up the great work. I wish I could play the way you do!

    ^Rob, that isn't me, that is David Braid. But cheers.

    We became friends on facebook and going on a double date (LOL) next week to see Howard Alden in London (cannot wait!!!!!). David plays the Lute and a Gibson Archtop.

    I was talking about the bit you posted in the OH thread about a week ago, Matt!

    I completely agree with the guy who says that this piece recalls 2001 Space Odyssey! You may have guessed - I am quite a fan.
