Hi Herman,


You have been through it! I am glad you are still around and I hope you still have two or three of those nine lives left to use!


You have a real variety of guitars. I hope you still get to play them.


I have followed a teacher from Australia on You Tube. He uses a beautiful Epi. You may have seen him. He plays everything at a nice slow, even tempo -- and he hits every note with such precision and clarity that it sounds wonderful. In his hands that Epi is a good as any guitar made.


Between your kids and mine there will be a lot of guitars inherited - hopefully not before about 2025.


My playing has improved some despite my fingers. And even with just three fingers on my left hand I have learned, and can play, a ton of chords I never even knew when I was just playing my old 12 string. So I am keeping at it. I have changed from flat to wound strings because they seem easier for me to play. But, otherwise, I am still learning every day, still anxious to get at it every morning, still loving the sounds and the songs.


Be well! Scott
