    SCGC, their guitars, and the people associated with SCGC are very special indeed. I haven’t heard much directly from the company about their re-emergence from the Covid cave. I hope they will open soon, and in good position going forward.

    I’m very sorry. It is a real gut punch. It’s difficult to watch your buddy suffer and breathing issues are very tough to deal with. The COVID situation really adds to the misery. Every day will lead out of the fog a little more. You know the deal when you get them, but it’s never easy. I wish you and Wendi peace.

    There was a rebroadcast of the Terry Gross – John Prine interview on NPR’s Fresh Air show today. His recollection of collaborating with Phil Spector for songs on his last album were precious. Especially when asked if he was surprised that Spector committed murder. He said something like — well when you have as many guns hanging around as Phil did, sooner or later one of them is going to go off. He’s had a way and it will be missed.

    That’s one of my favorite standards – in D. I capo strings 1-5 on the second fret & Travis pick. I like the deep sound of the open E in that arrangement. Great song. He will be missed for sure.

    I’ve always been an early riser, but my father-in-law was a very early riser. When we’d visit him in Colorado, I would get up around 5:30-6:00 and he’d be sitting in the living room with one small table lamp keeping the living room in half light. He’d be wearing a set of headphones and a smile as he listened to Art Bell every morning. That was my introduction to Art Bell. By the time I got up my FIL had finished his first percolator of coffee and he would reuse the grounds to make a second pot for me. I miss my FIL.

    Here’s an observation that I’m not sure is simply my old ears or a common characteristic of full scale OM & 000 size guitars. I find the sound coming from the B & G strings when flat picked is more percussive and punchy than other models. Just me? If it’s not just me, then why is it so?

    I owned an H13 Adirondack/Mahogany. I loved the guitar for finger style, but couldn’t quite make it work to my taste using a pick. It was a dream to play with plenty of head room and I can’t quite put my finger on why it didn’t work for me. I found it to be very dry with a strong focus of fundamental tone. After  1.5 years of trying to love it, I moved it along. I thoroughly enjoy my SCGC OM (euro/EIR) and SCGC OMG (euro/Cocobolo). I still think about the H13 though and might circle back to that model at some point.

    Looks like Taylor has a similar idea.

    I don’t have the opportunity to visit these West Coast gems very often, but I’d love to get your take on this 000 at Sylvan.
