    playing with the grandkids, grilling, N scale model railroad, music......I play a lot of different places in the KC area. Pizza parlors, coffee shops, bars, libraries, farmers markets, parks...anywhere they won't arrest me. I write a lot of my on material, but also do many cover songs. And I really like Gibsons and Martins.

  1. Doctors claim that rubbing coffee grinds over your naked body has a lot of health benefits……….Maybe so, but don’t do it at Starbucks! They’ll call the cops.
  2. Welcome back! You can always come back home. Glad you did.
  3. Went up to GC today. First time there I think since around last New Year’s. Just don’t buy much there anymore. One Gibson, a 2018 J45 Rosewood, 5 Martins, and a shitload of Taylors in their high dollar room.. Seems like most music gear is getting more expensive, at least at GC. Anyway, I needed a new music stand and harmonica holder.
  4. Yep! Just follow the money! It would be so easy for them to do something “grassroots,” that the average guy would automatically identify with. Someone who plays bars, wineries, coffeehouses in their own area talking about their Gibson and playing some Cash, Dylan, Lovin’ Spoonful, Baez, Lightfoot. Doesn’t have to be real technical, although Gibson could supply that at the start. The rest could be the “average Joe” doing a couple songs and telling what why he loves playing his Gibson. I would watch/listen to that.
  5. Yeah, doing something like this could get them on the news, along with increasing sales. I think a lot of guitar pickers would be talking about it.
  6. Exactly! I’d love to see them do something like NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert, focused on average, unknown folks who perform one or two songs with their Gibson guitar. I’ll be very surprised if it happens, but it would be cool if it did (but again, I doubt that it will).
  7. The best advice I can give? Do not study me! You will not graduate!
  8. Sweet-looking J200! These are really awesome guitars. A real “looker.” There’s something special about a J200. Whether you’re playing quietly playing at home or having it between you and an audience at a gig.
  9. Being mostly a solo act, I rehearse most every day (to one degree or another). I admire and envy you folks who are good enough to be in a real band.
  10. If they’re in their original packaging, I use them. Don’t know if I ever consider how long I might have had them. I prefer Martin SPs, but if they’re not available, I’ll use whatever is.
  11. Wise words! A good repair guy is usually the best answer. Unless you’ve got the skills, knowledge, and tools a lot of repairs belong in the hands of a pro. I can change strings, slightly tweak a truss rod, and glue-down a pick guard, but beyond that I’m better off having it done by a pro. I suspect that in most situations, a good setup will help make an “okay” guitar a great guitar that you enjoy playing.
  12. It’s all good! This stuff is fun and often leads to places we hadn’t even thought about.
  13. What the hell is this world coming to? Yesterday evening, I’m in my underwear, relaxing in a recliner, eating Doritos, drinking a can of beer, and watching Duck Dynasty and damn Walmart calls the cops!
  14. Yeah, those lounges with a guitar are cool. We just got back from The Wisconsin Dels and they had a large common area in the resort we stayed at (Wilderness Resort). They had an Alvarez there that wasn’t bad and a small sound system. It’s easy to sound good when you play just five songs that you actually do well…..lol…People think your better than you really are…..At least that’s how it worked for me….lol…lIt was fun.
  15. I’ve got everything on my IPad. Lyrics and chords. I use it on some songs. Just depends on the song. I’ve got around 150 songs on it and regularly play 50-60 of them. The rest I mix-in from time to time. Using the IPad is easy when I need it.
