Well I've still lurked here but have not suffered from any MAS since acquiring my guitar a few years back. Sounds better every day. I did this for the Tiny Desk contest and will give a good idea of the sound. Its a little out of tune and needs a setup but still sounds great. This Northeast weather is a ***** on guitars

You have probably heard this before, but let me say it again: NEVER SELL THAT GUITAR ! Wow, what great Gibson tone. Nice song and performance - very Vermonty. [biggrin]

Remember the voice...'down at the bar there drinking 12 ounce American dreams while the women feed their children on broken swallow? screens'...think that's you right? Liked that song. Keep it rockin' man

Thanks everyone! I realized I hadn't posted here in awhile and I always LOVE demo videos. I backed into finding this guitar and I think it was meant to be. She's got that Honk for sure and overtime I play a show and bring it out there are a couple of gasps. ha....street cred!

Good stuff , haven't done that partial capo trick in so long .

Might see if it works for me today.

 

Inspiring . keep posting.

 

Hey BBG, Inspiring- I agree! Would you explain the partial capo trick as it used in this song/video? I love the drone tone on his guitar...dropped D I assume?

If you look closely the capo is only over 5 of the strings , leaving the low E uncapoed.

You get an equivalent of drop tuning , but then forming the G chord still plays a G ....

Except its not G because we're capoed at 2 , so its an A ...

 

 

 

Making sense ? :-/

 

Simplest is just capo at 2nd fret putting capo on uoside down over 5 strings.

You dont need to tune any strings down . just leave them standard tuning
