  1. @Gran Gran Welcome to the forum, and I presume, to Steve's course. My take on your question is this: the guitar that will best help you learn is the one on which you actually practice and play. That guitar could cost anywhere from $25 to $250,000. It should suit the kind of music you want to play, give you pleasure, and it should be professionally set up so that you don't have to work against it. So, my layperson's short answer is, no. There comes a price point of diminishing returns at which the extra dollars do not add playability or tone as much as they add trim and finish. This point

    Riffing with Otis

    Let’s take a break, Otis. I’m getting older. Yeah? What else makes you so special? Ha, ha, ha. No, I'm just feeling it lately. Huh. What happened? Did a mirror catch you? There’s that, too. Like Bonnie said, "Those lines are pretty hard to take when they're staring back at you." Be glad someone's looking back in the mirror. And I feel… small. You're six feet tall. Do I have to listen to this? Come on. How long have you been my imaginary bass player, Otis? I don't know. About as long as you've had your imaginary talent. Oh, that’s good

  14. For the past few years, off and on, I’ve studied music theory with the Community Music School near me at the University of Delaware. We tallied around 55 class hours, and have progressed — pun intended — about as far as we can go before delving into specific areas such as orchestrating and songwriting. My instructor is the supremely talented Kevin J. Cope, composer and president of the Philadelphia Classical Guitar Society. Our final assignment this summer was to write a piece for solo piano incorporating what we’ve learned. I can’t play piano — it would have helped — but fortunately Fina
