  1. Great story Mike, thank you for sharing, Henk
  2. Happy Birthday Steve! Thank you! Henk
  3. Way to go Greg, that was excellent. Nothing is more special in life than bringing the Grandkids into a shared project. Henk
  4. A good read Mandy but I suppose the composition of the list is dependent on the age of the participants making the requests. Personally I liked some of the songs but jazz is missing, perhaps that indicates my age group. Henk
  5. Luckily for me, my audiologist is also a guitar player. She asked me to bring a guitar into the lab and play songs. My hearing aids are digital and allow for four different programs to use in various situations. My programs are standard, dining, wind/golf and music. While playing she designed a special program for music. Then asking me if the tweaks to the program were better or worse, she dialed in the response which sounded good to me. Unfortunately she could not make me sound like Carlos Santana. Henk
  6. Well, I guess that makes me an extra old fart who wears two hearing aids. For me my best buddy is the Snark. Henk
  7. Congratulations Mike, I love that dark cherry colour. Many hours of pleasure in your future. Henk
  8. Ron, that was fabulous, a great song and better rendition. Henk
  9. My campfire guitar is an old Seagull beater. I would never consider taking a Martin on a camping trip. Henk
  10. I'm trying to stay with the "basic food groups". A six string acoustic, for the campfires; a 12 string acoustic for the folk songs and Gordon Lightfoot; and a six string electric which covers the blues and rock. I have been strictly adhering to the rule, "One guitar in means one leaves", of course that may all change with a lottery win. Henk
  11. This is the same type of question as how a guitar sounds. It is completely subjective as far as your hearing or feel. I use the same strings which came with my guitars, 10 - 46 on the electric (PRS) and 12 - 54 on acoustics (Seagull). Henk
  12. That is a beauty Ron, like you I am a big fan of Carlos. I can see in your future many hours of pleasure playing this wonderful guitar. Smooth!! Henk
  13. No problem Steve, I could follow along with the worksheet. I was able to get the idea. Thanks for helping us with this downtime. Henk
  14. For me two day in the early morning. Guitar Gathering and PRS Guitars Forum. Henk
  15. Good job Dan! Good tempo, keep at it and you will notice the doors opening in front of you. Henk
