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.
