    I do not know what is wrong with me. But after ignoring Bluegrass my whole life and even hating banjo rolls, I am enjoying learning Bluegrass technique on the acoustic. Go figure. I signed up for CountryGuitarOnline.com and have been learning some stuff. Any other suggestions for lesson...

    Favorite Acoustic

    I have been getting more into flat picking acoustic lately. As a result I am thinking of buying a new acoustic. What are some models/ brands I should look at. It has been a long time since I last looked. I always liked Larrivee as a good guitar at a great price. Any other ideas? It would...

    What IF...?

    Just spit balling here. In the 70s I viewed the Japanese copies of American guitars to be nothing to be interested in. Most of us ridiculed players who showed up with a copy(behind their back). But the minute Gibson went after Ibanez I was interested in learning more. It peaked my interest and...

    Reverb....what happened to thee?

    I have always had good luck selling and buying on Reverb. I have never received top dollar on sales. But if I did my homework and looked at where Guitar Center was pricing vs what was being offered price-wise at Reverb and other sites, I could triangulate on a fair price. I have recently...

    Gibson CEO leaves Levis

We are talking FU and all...

About the only vice I willingly indulge anymore but only once or twice a week nowadays. Still have lots of...

    Hey StewMac

    StewMac keeps giving me $10 off coupons. I do not know why. I maybe buy $30 a yr in stuff from them. A new this or that but never much. But StewMac- if you want me to go big on something I would rather have a 25 to 30% off coupon. Then I would probably go big on replacing some stuff. All this...

    Done with Carbon Bikes

    For the last 15ish yrs I have used carbon bikes for my everyday training bike. Since I retired I try to ride 4-5 days a week. So I put a lot of miles on the frames. But in the last 5 yrs I have had 2 bikes returned with warranty claims. First, warranty claims are a pain in the butt. The...
