I did it! Hubba! Hubba!
« on: September 08, 2009, 02:49:47 PM »
I found a great deal on a D10SCE yesterday.  I picked it up today and man, sweet as honey, WOW!  The D10 is a great guitar!

Yes, I was planning to get a D46SP - I still admire it - but that was too far to stretch for me right now, if you know what I mean.  Anyway, I am overjoyed by this purchase.  This IS one great sounding guitar!

I welcome another Washburn into my fold!

Hello Mark...

I know exactly how you feel! It's hard to put it into words how the Washburn D10 series feels in your hands...and the sound....wow....just hard to describe!

How does the D10SCE sound plugged into the amp? Is the acoustic beauty still alive when amplified? I've always wondered about that...

It sounds very nice!  The WT-92 has Treb-Mid-Bass-Presence and volume on it.  What limited time I had it hooked up sounded very close.

Mark,
Congratulations on your new D10SCE! May you have many good years of playing enjoyment to come with it.
I notice your from Joplin, MO. I went thru there back in 1960, on my way to Fort Sill,OK. Back when gas was 19.9 a gallon and three guys washed all your windows, checked your oil, and swept out you car with a fill-up.

I play my D46SCE through my Crate Telluride Acoustic amp. and it sounds great, and the amp many effects, like chorus, reverb, delay that enhance the sound even more. I'm still learning all that the amp can do, but I still play the guitar unplugged more than plugged in.

Congrats Mark!

Yes, they are quite surprising.....easily sound and play as wel as more expensive instruments.  For plugging in, my D10SCEB is my go-to guitar!  Got pics??????

Mark,

Sweet guitar. I got the same guitar this Spring and the more I play her, the more I love her. Hope you get the pickup problem worked out to your satisfaction.

Gitfiddle, you have really been around!  I would love to learn jazz chords like that!  I wasn't born until '63, so I missed a lot of what you saw.

I started playing when I was 14.  It was a Stella Harmony with 5 strings, Ha!  I had to relearn chords after I got a new set with 6!

I play mostly for church (electric bass, piano, guitar), and write songs, also.  I've recently rekindled an interest in guitar (previously, most songs I did were on piano), which is why I wanted a decent 6 string to continue to learn on.  I'm determined to learn all I can.  I'm having fun, too!

Thanks for sharing a bit of your life with us, and the links.

Mark

First let me let you know where I'm at...

I know what the 12 bar blues is, and the blues scale (Used to play that on the sax).  I know and use bar chords - E, Em, E7, Em7, A, Am  position.  I know and use Ninth chords in some compositions.  I've recently charted fingering positions for all Major/relative minor/blues scales (pentatonic, box, etc.) for all frets up to 12 and 14.  I flatpick and fingerpick in addition to strumming.

Recently I've begun using more Triads instead of 6 string chords in strumming.  I know I've just scratched the surface of Triad patterns.  I use Fmaj7, D, Dm7, and B pattern (minus 4th string) Triads.  Still finding my way around the frets.  I'm much more comfortable on bass, even to the higher frets!

I do a lot of improvisation during slower songs in service (with varying degrees of success), but I'd like to learn to more complicated licks that would sound good in whatever style song I'm doing.  Many of the chords we use are much more complex than the simple 3 chord rotation variety.

During these songs, I normally pull out the charts, and play along.  I try to harmonize with our Mandolin player, and sometimes take the melody during a break in the singing.

Anyway, I'm at work, now, so I'll look over the information you have - hey, I'll take whatever you want to send me!  I want to be well rounded in my knowledge.

Thanks for taking the time. :)

Whoa, Gitfiddle!

  I said I know some 9ths.  11ths and 13ths are just in the planning stage! ;)  I do understand the 2-5-1 and 1-6-2-5 configuration.  We use the latter on a few songs.  We also do a TON of split chord songs.  Many of these songs don't fit the standard patterns.  They're also harder to add fill-ins on.  That's a major goal of mine, too.

As to the sus chords, I use them a lot.  But then I like to fingerpick slower songs where subtle differences (suspended, augmented, flatted 5th's, etc. :P ) shine out a lot.  I actually understand the circle of 5ths but find it's particularly useful when modulating to a different key.  It helps to know the 5th of what you want to modulate to - hit the 5th of the key with a 7th chord and you're all set (unless the new song starts on the 4th or 5th of the key!)

BTW, I do have microsoft publisher.  Any materials you want to send, feel free.  I appreciate it!

Thanks again for the support,

Mark

I seriously doubt that I'm better than you.  I'm just learning a lot of this stuff.  I'll shoot you an email when I get home.

Again, thanks for the help!

I've been working on a break for I'll Fly Away.  I saw it first on youtube and decided to try it.  I've got it down but not to speed just yet.  Yep, I'm havin' fun!
