OK, I'll bite.

 

I am not really a guitar player in the sense that I don't play arrangements very much on guitar. Rather, we use guitars more to back up vocal, play breaks and do rhythm roles. Also we jam -- ie, not practice, just play and see what happens. These are all like that.

 

First some from our 1943/44 "go to" J-45.

 

-- Keep on the Sunny Side

-- Make me a Pallet on Your Floor

-- Old Country Church

-- played with 1943 SJ

 

Here are some from our 1944 refin that lives in Nova Scotia

 

-- freight train

http://users.ece.gatech.edu/~barnwell/debbie.mp3 -- rhythm on Debbie's Waltz by 85 year old Down East fiddle player, Evelyn Lockridge

-- Kelly Moore (Dead Girl Songs) plays and sings Hard Times with a pickup band

 

Finally, our near mint 1942 with our not mint 1952

 

-- Closer walk with thee, Cannon Ball Blues, Grandfather's clock

 

Let's pick,

Tom,

I just watched the videos.

I love looking at your guitar collection and think you and the wife do a great job.

I like your pickin' style and I like her singing.

Have a great Holiday!

Dave

The J-45 is my overall fav Gibson acoustic. Love the sound, look and history.

 

Would be nice to hear a bunch of them being played by the members here.

 

Here is a little clip of mine I recorded just now.

 

The piano/generated drums are maybe a little to loud.

 

that sounds lovely, I have wanted one of these guitars for a long time
