  1. Absolutely loved it, Sal. Both the guitar and the vocals. So good to see you posting tunes again. the guitar sounds huge and so sweet. Great catch! good luck with the smokes. I did it 35 years ago and am glad every day of my life...I thought of it as quitting just one cigarette at a time. When the urge hit I said “I’ll just not smoke this one”...pretty soon all was calm. best to you and yours, friend. Roger
  2. Good catch, Sal. Looking forward to hearing some tunes on it. roger
  3. That was fantastic. Really well done. Thanks for posting. rb
  4. Love the dark neck. Is it stained maple or mahogany? Great guitars. rb
  5. Thoughts and prayers are right there with you, buddy. roger
  6. I edited my post to include just that...less glamorous stuff. Great thread, lots of fun. roger
  7. I don’t think I’ve hit my pinnacle yet, and may never. 😩 Actually, probably senior year of high school. I was lead singer in the Fabulous Chevelles, middle of Indiana in 1963. We had so much fun playing high school dances and parties. Recorded a record in Nashville (Indiana) which sold tons...I think ever member of our families bought one. After that, not so much. It all ended when I graduated and went into the Air Force. So was life in the mid-sixties. Wouldn’t trade any of it (including my military hitch) for anything. Life was good back then.... except mullets weren’t around yet. 😉 roger
  8. Good strong tone, Sal.. sounds like you got a good one. Is there a pickup in it? I think I remember that you’ve slowed down on the gig schedule, so maybe that’s not a priority. Would love to hear more of the CW with some singing. thanks for posting. I’ve wondered how you’re liking it so far. Roger
  9. Bet I could make one for less than half a buck. rb
  10. Looks like mahogany to me. Of course, I’ve been wrong before 😳 roger
  11. Could you be more specific as to what bothers you about the video? Everyone views things a little differently, but I didn’t see anything that set me off. Perhaps I’m missed something. Granted, it’s a pretty strong stance that I’ve not seen before, but there is an awful lot of copying going on out there.
  12. Great story, Sal. Thank you for sharing this with us. I grew up in Indiana, and spent a lot of time in Indianapolis, where my grandparents lived. I’m familiar with the area where this took place albeit many years earlier. We need more stories like this to restore our faith in our fellow passengers on this big bus we’re all on. Especially when we hear so much of the negative that takes place. Great post, friend. Roger
  13. Nice sound, Sal. Very commanding bass, but great balance. You got a sweet one. roger
  14. I think I qualify for membership in that club too, Dave. 😳 it’s a great part of the hobby for me. If the bills are paid, you’re saving some, mamma’s happy, and the baby has shoes...no harm in my book. Roger
