      I received a book from Chris/Digdog tittled ‘The Guitar” (Tracing The Grain Back To The Tree) by Chris Gibson and Andrew Warren.

      I believe Chris/Digdog got it from Paul Hasson.

      I’m about 1/2 way through it and very much enjoying it .

      Who wants it next ?

      First posted response get it next….but must also pass it on to a forum member.

      I enjoyed the book and I’m glad it’s touring guitar country.

      Paul,

      What did you think of the statement that “true” Dalbergia nigra “Have cells whose dimensions are proportional and in sync with the wavelengths of guitars” ?

      Would love to hear Maestros thoughts.

      Thanks for starting the “Road trip” of  the book.

        I don’t know what to make of that. But, Brazilian gets credit for just about everything, so why not?

      An Update….. I finished this book today and will send on tomorrow….but , let me say that it is a “true and Real” insight into what all is involved in the creation of the instruments and the Tone woods that we all love. I think the conclusions in this book make it incumbent on we who are fortunate enough to “care take” and pass on these creations of nature, time , and human artistry to understand our part in the timeless pairing of wood , steel and musical expression.

       

      SCGC’s Richard Hoover is quoted several times and the final conclusions of the book are what the Maestro has based his teachings, artistry and company soul upon.

      I also realized that in my old age I have become a Guitar Nerd/Snob…..So Be it…. there are worse things to be. LOL
