    Cut out the fastest horse from the Ramuda… A Bavarian Motor Works Breed?..Saddle up and ride.. like the wind….don’t forget your checkbook.

    Saddle up and play it…..If it bucks you off at least you had a good ride……but that is a very good model.

    Just wondering about strings on this video. I may have missed it but do they talk about what strings are on the Galager. I assume the SCs have SC mid tensions as they are OMs, but whats on the Galager?

    The reason I ask is that I’ve been playing my maple F today and thanks to Chris I have discovered that I like the Elixer P.B. 11/52 custom lights on it more than the SC mids.

    On the F the elixers give a much “Jazzier” voice that my Good ear likes.

    Everything that is said in the Video about the Color of the tone woods (inside the instrument) may be true….I repeat “may” be true. but what about the strings ??

    Just curious if the store guy took that into consideration ? Did the Player ?

    Yea , I agree with Chris. The Spruce/Hog sounded like a better blend with his “Songwriter” voice…at least to my ear.

    The Galliger was a sweet sound and well bassed.

    would have like to have heard the SCGC Maple and the Galliger as a duo.

    The Friends- NLN is a song written by a songwriter/singer friend of Dee’s.
    He has given up Demon Rum and has been attending AA meetings.
    This is a song about the folks he has met at those meetings
    The recording is real time with him singing and me backing him with the SCGC OM.
    I was flattered he asked me.
    THANKS Richard (Big MON) Newman for helping me post this.

    The Maple F he appears to be smiling about looks like a twin of my “Palimino”.

    The sort of off hand comment that Mike made that Richard gets choice of the best tone woods and everybody knows it was interesting…..I guess 45 years of history and ethical business practice make a difference when your dealing with the tone wood suppliers.

    Would love to hear Mr. Hoovers stories of obtaining those woods.

    I saw that some time ago…..first thought was ‘How Cool”…..then realized that Maestro Hoover has spent 45 years designing string that were meant to be “Picked”. and if I want to learn to use a bow ,I’ll get me a Fiddle.

    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
