  1. R.I.P. Dusty.....This music trio was part of my life growing up and my music world. They put out some great Rock-n-Roll music that will forever be played. So thankful for his musical artistry and the impact on so many fans and fellow artists!
  2. Mike- Congratulations on the new Taylor Koa. A Beauty! I picked up and played several Taylor Koa's at Gruhn Guitars. I have always appreciated the wood coloring and grain. Koa is a beautiful wood! I enjoyed a very well rounded mellow & balanced sound from the ones I played. My Martin HD-35 is loud and booms; my Taylor 614CE is great with a little more clarity as some describe as jangly! The Koa is a guitar I would buy if I wanted to pull the trigger on a new guitar! Enjoy and let us know how you like it after playing for a suitable time frame!
  3. Henk- Congrats on the new Eastman. Let us know how you like the playability and tone! Mike
  4. Mandy- Thank you for your time, energy and the spirit of learning. I agree, a format to record and share is a win, win for the artist recording and the students who get the benefit of learning from others. Great job and thank you. Take care, Mike
  5. I am surprised that this would even be a question among musicians! 🙃
  6. Hey Henk- Thanks for the view. Amazing to watch how much he has going on. I have a hard time with one guitar, my left hand and right hand doing what they are supposed to do and real lucky if my foot stays in time!
  7. I am always looking around for music and artist that catch my ear and make me stop and listen. Not just listen, but really hear, feel and be moved by their music and talent. I came across such an artist today- Reinhardt Buhr. I know that his music is not for everyone, but I was so impressed by his musicality, expression, composition, timing, obvious instrument playing music talent (instrument choices) as well as his ability to improvise, play, sing, record, loop all while improvising and entertaining live! The music may or may not be your taste and style, but just watch the video and see what is going on and hear the beauty of the composer and what is coming from his heart and soul. Beautiful! IMHO:) Take Care, Mike

    Guitar Gathering 2021


    Let the planning begin. Called doctor today to check on vaccine availability and scheduling!
  9. Congrats on your new ES-335. I love mine. Enjoy!
  10. Mike- Congrats on the new Taylor E14ce. Such different grain on the back- beauty! Play and enjoy!
  12. Mandy- I am so sorry for your loss. No words can express enough comfort. I can only say that I have lost loved ones and it hurts so bad. Know that your Guitar family grieves with you and for you. My grandmother always told me, "to feel pain is to know you are alive"! I know in your heart and soul, you have so many great memories to travel with you and keep you company! When you arrive at a place & time in this season, remember, "that without music, life would be a mistake! (I'm not sure who said this, but I wrote it down sometime during my guitar life). Reach out, we are here for you! Thoughts and prayers are with you. Mike
  13. Good history lesson Doug.
