    He was a good actor.  Don’t know much beyond that but he seems to have been a pretty good guy.

    Dang, got here too late.  That F is a jazz box with a flat top.

    It IS sad. I’ve sailed down the coast in a 52’ boat and seen great whites investigate to see whether the boat contained tasty treats…..makes my blood run cold to remember.

     

    They’re some scary beasts, the tigers of the sea, the apex predator.  So sorry for the family left….

    Yeah, the suspension in those things doesn’t do much.  I helped a friend fix a late-fifties Chevrolet, but he redid the suspension on all four corners to make it a usable vehicle.

    That PJ is gorgeous.

    Playing in that tuning requires a little rewiring and rearranging to keep the melody lines where you want ‘em.

    They are also great for filling out tracks.  But by itself it can be a little hard to take.

    Hope you find a good 12.

    I’ve played with the Spire app and it’s pretty neat.  Setting it up to record when I’m working with a click really is useful for getting my time together.  And, it should be noted for relentless self-flagellation when my time is bad.

    Daniel, I did see the Soundbrenner, and I’m considering one.  An audible click has been my go-to but this may be more helpful.

    Don’t give up indeed.  And glad that you survived the big C and the misery that is Mohs surgery and recovery.

    Andy, thanks for the videos.  Wonderful stuff.

    The extra light tension won’t hurt the guitar.  It might necessitate a truss rod tweak if the rod is set for normal tension.

    Nashville is fun, though.  Finger picking in it is different….

    Linda suspects coq au vin may be her destiny, even if she is a hen. 😀

    I just got sheet music/tab for a Renaissance lute piece called “Aria di Fiorenza” by Kapsberger.  I’ve wanted to play it for years, and it’s now clearly the time.  It’s really a short melody with a nearly infinite possible set of variations, and a few more or less standard ones…..it’s absolutely beautiful.   I’ve been told that once the basic harmony is learned, it’s relatively easy to extract new voicings for each chord

    This is the gold standard. I’ll be playing it on a steel string OM which might get tuned down to enlarge the compass.

    So sorry to hear.  They’re wonderful friends and they don’t last long enough.

    Pretty much daily.  I’m spending a lot fo time with the Real Book and the ‘nome.  Learning to swing with a click is hard work!
