  1. @Old Guy, Really sorry to hear about the damage to your home. Hopefully, you can get your "man cave" up and running sooner than later. Bill
  2. Sandy, Thank you for the encouragement and words of wisdom. I will stick with it and let you know how it's going. I'm a true Steve believer! Bill
  3. Okay. thanks Doug for clearing this up for me. Have a great Sunday! Bill
  4. Oops, I meant Down - Up - Down - Up. Told you I was confused. lol Bill
  5. Session 3 - Up and Down strokes for Eighth Notes: I'm confusing myself. In Session 3, Eighth Note Exercises, the book says "when you have several eighth notes of the same pitch in a row, then alternate your picking (Down - Up - Down - Up)". Does this mean eighth notes on the same string that are "barred together" such as B C D on the second string are played Down - Up - Down? This makes sense to do I think. This is where I'm getting confused - What about Exercise 5 on page 17 of the Lesson Book where you have the eighth notes C and E barred together or the next notes D and F? These are on different strings and it seems a bit awkward to use the Up - Down - Up - Down pattern. Bill
  6. A big thank you to all of you for your photos, downloads/uploads, and journalistic play by play. I haven't been able to work one of these into my schedule yet so it's nice to come home from work and at least live vicariously through each of you! Great reporting! Bill
  7. @K9kaos - Keeping my fingers crossed for you. I'm sure you'll get there - thinking all good thoughts for you. Bill
  8. Karl, That is an absolutely beautiful guitar! I love the inlays and the wood you selected. Play it with pride. Bill
  9. Thanks for posting this. I've got it on my list for the weekend! Bill
  10. Thanks Ron! This was really cool. I love hearing about all the different musicians that have influenced each of them. I feel like I've been to the church of music this morning. Such wonderful positive souls! btw, I do play like I don't know how to play...... Bill
  11. Thank all of you for your generosity. I'm sure it's a big time commitment but you guys do an amazing job. This site runs pretty much flawlessly! Diane will be a great addition to the team! Again, thank you for all that you do, the GG family truly appreciates it. Bill
  12. Now if we could only have good old "mike" back to let us know about the great deals on guitars like the Takamine EAN 40 we all bought with the case for a closeout from MF for $300.00 I agree! I miss old Mike as well. He was a wealth of knowledge.
  13. Welcome back Slug! If I remember right, I think you were a big Fender fan??? Hope all is well and happy to have you back with the family. Bill
  14. Looks great! Turn it up and have fun! Bill
