Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Sup!
« on: August 12, 2017, 11:51:03 AM »
Haven't been by in awhile.  Thought I'd check in and see how everyone is doing.  Still playing our Washies, although our house got robbed a few years back and they did snag a few of them.  Hope everyone is doing well.

Per tradition,

one night early,

Happy Birthday, Tio, from the Shiner Household!!!   :D :D :D

Hope that you have the most awesome of days with music and loved ones. 


CB had to come for a conference and she suggested I come down, enjoy the hotel amenities, and spend some time with my boy (his birthday is tomorrow).  Baby girl decided that sounded like a great idea so she's flying in tomorrow and I get to enjoy time with my two favorite children. :)

Um, back to the point, guess which guit I brought down  8)

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Beater Guits...

What's yours?  My D10S is my go to girl when it comes to travel.  I can't say I really consider her a beater guit, but she's the one I wouldn't mind spending the money to replace if something happened to her.  So far she's been on 10 different trips to 5 different islands.  I've always thought I really need to hit the pawn shops and find a laminated guit to replace her, but that probably won't happen unless some monkey at the airport trashes her.

My boy and baby girl called me today.  And I was changing the strings on my Washy 12 string, when I realized I hadn't wished a lot of my old internet friends a happy father's day.  Hope everyone enjoyed their day  :) :) :) (and hopefully Rocket won't hate on the emoticons too much :D)

Post your thoughts on Banjos & Mandolins / Mando week
« on: March 07, 2011, 08:07:24 PM »
I always forget how much I love the mando until mando week comes around.

for the last few months.  Catching up on work, haven't really been playing much.  But I've been thinking about what I want to do next year.  My new years resolution for the last ten years has been to quit smoking.  And I did that this year.  I haven't had a cigarette since 1-4-10.

So I was thinking this might be a good time to start back on lessons.  CB has a kick ass teacher who REALLY knows what he's doing.  Thought I might give him a shot.  I've been listening to a lot of blues/jazz lately, and I'm thinking that's the direction I'd like to go.  I've spent the last week listening to Bonamassa's Live at the Royal Albert Hall, and I enjoy it, but I'm still more of an acoustic guy.

I think I need to learn the fretboard first.  But I need  to  combine that with some fun stuff.  

Input, suggestions, tell me to go to hell?

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Hello from Aruba!
« on: July 26, 2010, 03:06:31 PM »
I have VERY limited internet access via my Kindle 3G
browser, but we are sitting in an open air bar 20 feet from
ocean, it is who the hell knows o'clock in the afternoon,
and I'm on my who the hell cares Balashi (local beer).  
Our patio is about 30 feet from the ocean and last night I broke out the D10S and we jammed a little on the patio.
 The security guard was digging it.

Life is good my friends!

Oh Kimmie says I have to say happy birthday to me

With apologies to Washburn, CB with her new travel guitar:

OK guys, I've got my eye on a new toy, and there are only so many hangers on the wall, so for your consideration we have a 2006 Washburn Cumberland J28SDL.

Solid Spruce top, quilted laminated maple back and sides. Upgrades include a bone nut and saddle, and I replaced the plastic end pin and bridge pins with boxwood. I also removed the W from the pick guard (don't ask me why, it was a phase I went through).

CB bought this one for me from our friend Toaster20. I'm selling it with hard shell case for $400 plus shipping and handling. I will only ship USPS insured (about $50) to the continental US or to Canada for established forum members (although I won't predict what the shipping will run).  If anyone is interested, send me an email, If ya'll have any questions let me know and I'll do my best to answer them.

The mando just came up in rotation (I rotate the girls on a weekly basis to make sure they all get playing time).  So I tuned her up and dusted her off, and she's ready for another week of playin' Danny Boy and Irish Eyes and maybe even learning a new song or two!

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Baby Girl's B52SW
« on: June 06, 2010, 12:37:07 PM »
My beautiful daughter mentioned to me a few weeks ago that she wanted a 3/4 size guitar to use in her therapy sessions.  I told her that Washburn had in the past made a solid wood 3/4 size guitar that a lot of folks recommended highly.  In fact I had the opportunity to try out DTOM's the last time we went to Pearl.  So I mentioned on the forum that I was looking for one, and Pike emailed me offering to sell his.  Got it last week and it is sweet.  So without further ado, here is Baby Girl's B52SW:

A shot of it next to CB's Augusta:

And Pike was kind enough to throw in this sweet hsc:

Got the new CD in the mail today!  It's called Encores and it's a two CD compilation of live performances.  Been chillin' to a few tunes and enjoying a few beers tonight!

After a month long break from guitar, last night I set aside the mando and pulled my D10S off the wall.  Immediately it was like old times again and I completely fell in love with her.  The fret board seems extremely large now, and also I now like the sound of playing her with a pick.  Which is a good thing, since I no longer have the callous on my thumb from strumming her.[:(]

Post your thoughts on Banjos & Mandolins / Mando gig bag?
« on: March 27, 2010, 05:56:52 PM »
Hey guys, any suggestions for an inexpensive gig bag for the Rover?  I'm headed down to Houston next weekend to see the boy for Easter, and thought I might bring the mando rather than a guitar this time.
