  1. How did you come by this one? Rare beast indeed.
  2. I'd like to send you a private message.

  3. Lars - this is pretty good. Nice guitar and voice. What guitar did you use? Recording is very nice, I am still baffled at how folks do this, I am so technically challenged I can't begin to progress out of the rudimentary stage of a sloppy I-Phone recording that serves little purpose but to remind me of the melody and lyrics I write. I like the message here in this song - It speaks to me of the deep scar we are experiencing world wide. I cannot help but want to take a red pencil to your lyrics - when I listen to this over and over I cannot escape the feeling that the lyrical timing stumbles a bit interrupting the melodic tempo. I am addicted to simplicity. If you would permit me, I'd like to send you my initial suggestions targeted at syllables. I think there are some easy approaches to reduce some of the lyrical difficulties and smooth out this song without changing the message at all. Please keep writing, your stuff is getting better and better. I would love be sitting on a couch sipping bourbon and listening to your concert catologing your original songs, this is great - its exactly, to me, the stuff that Gibson guitars were built for.
  4. Geezer rock…I love it.
  5. Enjoyed that song - love tone you coax out of that palm muting technique.
  6. Heating pad is not hot enough to torify wood at the molecular level, but probably hot enough to weaken glue. Not a good idea at all.
  7. Yep. That'll play nicely. Don't get your cufflinks caught in the strings.
  8. Nice nice nice. Good to be able to understand all the words. That J45 Vintage sounds oh so good, never let that one go.
  9. The guitar is setup at the factory for light gauge (12) strings. Mediums will throw off nearly everything - nut slot depth and width in particular. A j45 can “handle” mediums, but I’ve found that lights on my J45 closely mimick the feel of mediums on my D28.
  10. You could try Humidipaks from Plant Waves. Designed to release or absorb moisture to maintain everything at 50%. I mostly fight dryness, but these have worked well for me.
  11. Clicking the link takes you to the groups Facebook page, where to view the content you need approval too join the group. You may have to revert to good old 'cut-n-paste' to share your article here. Smile Fierce !!!
  12. Ooooo, enjoyed that FB - nice J45 sound there. Such a versatile instrument. Never was a huge TW fan, but converting some of his stuff to acoustic guitar and actually pronouncing the words brings a whole different dimension to some truly great songs.
  13. Since the first 4 frets are kind of toasty you might consider replacing them all with Evo wire or something and have the fretboard planed down or replaced as part of that task.
  14. Some inner John Prine in this one. Keep writin’.
