  1. Congrats Mike, looks like a great pairing, enjoy. Henk
  2. Thanks for sharing Neil. Henk
  3. Despite being retired, I find myself with more work now than when ran my contracting business. Primarily doing renos for the family and trying to get my house ready to sell. I try every night to lock myself in my office for 30 minutes between 9 and 10. As tired as I am, I try to stick to it and surprise, surprise, once the notes begin to ring out, the tiredness evaporates. Weekends I can usually put together a couple of hours. Henk
  4. Karl, that is a beautiful guitar and you say that it is your first build, amazing! You are definitely a talented woodworker. The gold tuning machines perfectly match the head stock inlay, giving the appearance of a very expensive and classy guitar. Impressive. Henk
  5. Looks like you had quite a day Diane. A wise man once said, that for every door which closes in your life another one opens. Perhaps you may join some like minded guitarists to form another "fun" band. Henk
  6. 7) How to look good after tripping on a guitar cable.
  7. Can't believe the timing of this thread since I just bought the Katana 50 yesterday at L & M, $299 CAD. I have been listening to the members reviews and finally decided to purchase. The bad news is that this amp is so popular, it is back ordered three weeks. I have no choice but to wait before rendering a review. Henk
  8. Great catch Ben, I can see many hours of pleasure in your future. Henk
  9. Thank you for posting the video Ron, there were so many interesting comments that I watched it twice. I am also a big PRS fan, Carlos Santana and his music has been a favourite of mine since Woodstock. These famous artists all take their craft very seriously from the point of view of the fans to be entertained. The professionalism of these men to be the best they can be every night is what makes them special. Plus, their relationship with Paul R. Smith to develop the "tools" to improve the sound is something that we all benefit from whether listing to the music or trying to play it. Henk
  10. @The Deuce, keep in mind, "Who knows what's down the road", is usually accompanied with a price tag. Henk
  11. I use the iPhone app Voice Memos, works great and keeps it simple. The only problem that I have had is that the replay doesn't sound as good as my playing /singing. Henk
  12. I think the picks are covering the money spent since starting to play the guitar. Henk
  13. Yes, this is very interesting since I tend to also fail to "hear" the metronome. I know that just about everyone in music recommends using a metronome but I seem to find it a difficult device to be continually fighting with. The idea of feeling a pulse on my fretting wrist may just work. Nutty 1, I would be interested in your review. Henk
  14. Congratulations S Bach, that is a very, very nice guitar. I am a big PRS fan with an SE Santana. You will absolutely love the sounds that this axe will make with various types of music, plus they feel great to play. Enjoy!! Henk
