    1. Listen to your mom. Don't play with your teeth. Dentists don't come cheap.
    2. Yoda switched to bass because he couldn't play barre chords.
    3. I am a big Taylor fan. I would like to have a Martin also. Gibson makes some really good acoustics also. There are a few small makers that have great quality at a cost. I have been busy playing my new Taylor Grand Pacific 317e which is easily my best guitar.
    4. I still remember the first time I heard Eruption, it was like nothing that ever came before. I was lucky to see Van Halen in concert and he put on a terrific show.
    5. Hi @Greg Voros, Winter is coming and humidification is important. I usually have a whole house humidifier. I have also use the Planet Waves sponge system. Taylor recommends Humidipack. I was wondering what you think of the system, and how frequent to replace these packs. My experience is they seem to last much longer than the 3-6 months recommended. I just replace old packs and they were plump with moisture. I can't imagine my guitar wouldn't have absorbed it. Once a year might be reasonable. Of course it is very convenient compared to the sponge systems.
    6. UFO? I don't know, but he was out of this world talented.
    7. The Taylor Grand Pacific is definitely a lot of guitar. The neck is the smoothest I played so far. The sound is rich. I am going to put new strings on soon, and give it the complete treatment before winter comes. The case is a work of art. I have seen too many expensive guitars come with a gig bag so the Taylor case is a real treat.
    8. It is awful quiet in here. I thought I would make some noise with my new Taylor Grand Pacific. Mistakes are free!
    9. @Popeye I agree the Grand Pacific is very snug in the case. It is rock solid and the floral pattern is rich with gold hardware. Unfortunately, the Grand Pacific will not see the case anytime soon. I get to play with it all Labor Day weekend, and I am off next week. If you hear a guitar ringing, it just might be me.
    10. I found this 2019 gem in my local music store. The 2020 is $100 more, and I got a sale price for Labor Day weekend. I traded in my Taylor GS Mini to help reduce the cost. I get Andy Powers design, and V-bracing. The GS Mini was a good little guitar, but the Grand Pacific is a much richer experience. Then of course there is the case, and what a case it is.
    11. Ultimate Guitar Pro is another good option. It isn't a book, but the TAB is supposed to be some of the best. There is an annual fee, but it is 80% off right now. Guitar Pro
