What's my guitar?
« on: June 23, 2008, 07:07:58 PM »
I have a EA-17Q/TWR electro-accoustic washburn but I cant find any info about it on this site. Also the battery cover is broken and I'm not sure how to order a new one. Any help would be much appreciated [:D] Classical Gas is a real bastard to learn [xx(], I might just give up trying!!

Ivan, Classical Gas is really not all that difficult. The fingerings are actually all pretty simple. Don't be in a hurry, one measure at a time. Here's some info on your EA17.

EA17
- deep single sharp cutaway style, solid spruce top, quilt maple backand sides, maple neck, 14/20-fret
rosewood fingerboard with offset dot inlays, round soundhole with abalone rosette, rosewood bridge, B
Band microphone and preamp, Buzz Feiten Tuning System, chrome hardware, available in Quilted
Trans. Wine Red or Black finish, mfg. 2004 only.

Grading
 100%       Excellent        Average
 $495      $325 - 375      $175 - 225

Last MSR was $700.

It is a good tutorial, Pike. This is the one I used to watch and learn, bit by bit, and I have it down pretty well now. It doesn't include the trumpets section as Tommy Emanuel would play it, but I will figure that part out eventually. Until I can play it through without effort and fumbling in certain ares, I will not attempt the trumpet section and stick with this version.

Thanks Donny for the link. Funnily enough these are the lessons I've been using. I'm not sure if they are all that accurate as I've changed the bass line a bit after listening to Mason Williams on You Tube, posted up as Eric Clapton ( what's all that about? ).
But they are perfect for starting out.
Slowly slowly catchy monkey.....Cheers Donny...

Thanks for the info Pike, mine is the wine red finish.
I love this guitar, I have small hands and the neck is quite thin so is easier to handle. I had gone in to buy something different but after hearing this plugged in to an amp I had to have it.
I played on stage for the first time last year using my washburn,
I was so nervous I think I nearly killed it strumming so hard.
Still..live and learn eh, Cheers Pike..Ivan...
