  1. Here is a link to an extended conversation between Greg and Tom Bukovac that includes some information about the Acoustic Coffee company and also touches on Greg's childhood, his career, and his current fight against MS.
  2. Wow - congratulations - that is quite a prize!
  3. Congratulations - that is a good looking resonator!
  4. I think the exercise you are referring to contains 16th notes. 16th notes at 92 bpm is fast. I've been playing (or attempting to play) fingerstyle guitar for years and I can't play that fast. My advice is to move on to the next exercise.
  5. Congratulations Ron - you should treat yourself to a new guitar! 😀
  6. Fender has reportedly laid off hundreds of employees at its Corona, California factory.
  7. Here is a Stringjoy article on the top ten guitars ever sold. If any of you purchased one of these guitars - bring it to the next conference. 🙂
  8. You will have a great time. The setting is beautiful and the fall leaves make it even more so. I have attended all the fall conferences, and aside from the cramped bunking arrangements, each one has been a wonderful experience. The food is terrific and Steve and Paulette always have snacks available. If I remember correctly, Steve said we ate 75 pounds of M&Ms at the last fall retreat. 🙂 Among my highlights: I have sat next to Phil Keaggy at dinner, listened to John Knowles share tips and wisdom from a lifetime of playing guitar (and also a few Chet Atkins stories), learned from some of the best fingerstyle players in the world, and been introduced to Christie Lenée and Trevor Gordon Hall (if you want to be blown away check out Phil and Trevor's impromptu jam from the 2018 conference - they had never met or played together before). That video will give you an idea of the intimate setting the lodge provides - you will be sitting a few feet away from some of the most amazing guitar players in the world. Steve and Paulette are always outstanding hosts. Looking forward to seeing you there!
  9. That is really optimistic. Looking over my purchases and my progress to date, I have calculated that I will be 779 when I have completed everything. Of course, then I will have to start over because I will have forgotten most of it. 🙂
  10. Another one for you thrill seekers: Tommy Emmanuel's Guitar Camp.
  11. Wonderful Wim - That was really well done!
  12. And remember the Number One rule in guitar playing - Don't be a quitter:
  13. @matonanjin - Yes I would agree. Rumble Seat is a small shop that I would describe as half guitar shop and half guitar museum. I'm not aware if they rotate the guitars they have on display, but they had some incredible instruments hanging on the wall when I was there last summer. And they are conveniently located (between Carter's and Gruhn's).
  14. Yes - You have found the new site - the old site is no longer supported. Welcome!
  15. Gibson has released a previously unseen documentary filmed in 1967 called An Instrument of the People - a look at how guitars were crafted in Gibson's former factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Get an in-depth tour of Gibson's former Kalamazoo, Michigan factory in this recently unearthed 1967 documentary | Guitar World
  16. That was wonderful Mike. I have been trying to learn another version of Vincent - your version blows it away! Thanks for sharing!
  17. I have listened to a number of his YouTube videos - he seems like a good instructor.
  18. I use Boveda as well - I have them in all of my acoustic cases. They have worked well for me. My local guitar store sells them.
  19. Wow - that is an ambitious project! I imagine that the most difficult part will be getting the top and back realigned with the sides. Looks like it might have originally looked something like this:
