    Most under rated Acoustic guitars that are affordable.

    These puppys really rock! Great sound, tough as nails, never need tuning! I've had my CA for just over a year, I play it every single day, and I've tuned it about 5 times, total.

    Help and advice needed

    Go way slow- slower than you even think you need to, at first. Practice with as perfect technique as you can, as slowly as necessary, at first. It won't sound great, at first, but it will, with time and practice.

    Useful method of learning the guitar neck notes

    Thanks, although a bit late for me. I've learned the notes through idiotic, haphazard repetition and playing, mostly.

    Finger tips on fret wire, back of fret, or anywhere within the box?

    Whatever works, I guess, but I always try to get just behind the fret. Usually sounds better, especially on acoustic guitar.

    F Shape with thumb over top

    Fun technique, but what matters most is how it sounds, IMO, anyway. I use both traditional and "Hendrix" style grips, although I play mostly acoustic these days.

    Incredibly basic BEND question - the end of the bend.

    Oddly, I think (not near a guitar right now) I mute 'em with my picking hand. I'll have to check this out more closely next time I'm playing.

    On the search of a low action acoustic! Urgent!

    They don't look like a J-200 or a D-28, but Composite Acoustics guitars (carbon fiber) have low action and are terrific IMO. Had mine since August 1st, played it at least 2 hours every day since then, tuned it twice!
