  1. This is really fantastic, Sal - very soulful, my friend. And I love your solo! Thank you for posting it, and all the best this holiday season!
  2. My thoughts go out to you, Jinder. I must say you are facing your challenges with admirable grace and strength. May this holiday season bring you cheer!
  3. Me too, Nick! Sal, your performance of 'In My Room' is the best part of this whole thread - thanks a lot man!
  4. This is cool. I never knew there was anything Canadian about Texas!
  5. You could buy a room dehumidifier and put it in the same room you keep your guitar. Lower the humidity in the room, and continue with the silica packs. Always keep your guitar in its hardshell case.
  6. I used a flatpick when I took up guitar 25 years ago but I've been a bare fingers only player for about 15 years or so. This summer I picked up a .73 Dunlop pick I found in an old box and....I really liked the tone I was getting with my L-00. So, I decided to learn how to hybrid pick, using flatpick-middle-ring fingers. I'm progressing well, can do Travis picking Simon and Garfunkel pattern type songs , stuff like 'Here Comes The Sun', 'Blackbird'etc. I'm going to keep with it I think and try to add more complex melodic fingerstyle type stuff with this style .Anyway I bought a pack of
  7. Hey RBS, I'm in the GTA as well, and have bought guitars from the Twelfth Fret in the past. I've never needed repairs on my guitar, but its good to know where to get work done if needed. Have you had a lot of repair work done at 12th Fret?
  8. Loved this, Sal - well done man. Covering Dylan is NOT easy and this is great!
  9. The original 'Wildflowers' packaging had a great picture of Tom with a Martin D-40 something or other. Perhaps that was his main acoustic for that LP. The 'Wildflowers and All The Rest' vinyl cd/reissue coming out this fall has a couple of options. I think I saw there was a 9 LP edition, and a 3 LP edition.
  10. Man I miss this guy. Beautiful unreleased track from mid-90's dropped a couple days ago. Will definitely be getting the 'Wildflowers and All The Rest' vinyl this fall.
  11. Perhaps if the current President actually showed up once in a while to pay some respect, there would be no need for this type of 'political' speech.
  12. I'm not a great or confident singer Lars, but I'm coming to realize what I CAN do as a vocalist is worth focusing on. I was listening to the Bob Dylan Bootleg Series a while ago - the sessions Dylan recorded with Johnny Cash. On one of the tracks you can hear June Carter reminding Johnny Cash to 'sing the melody'. That's Johnny Freaking Cash she was talking to! That advice resonated with me. When I really work and focus on hitting the important melody notes in a vocal , it improves the whole performance. I like what you said about you liking your singing best 'live'. Why not go with
