Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Folk Guitar?
« on: January 02, 2008, 06:51:26 PM »
I think maybe in February after things settle down from the holiday and we get back from a cruise that we booked....gosh - almost two years ago :) I'll seriously go guitar shopping...I hope.

Right now I have a 9 month old kitty in the bedroom crying while my 5 others sit outside the door and get irritated with one another....arghhh...  Just so you all know - it was my husband's idea :)  Guess I better go sprinkle some catnip around :)

Thanks again for all the info.  I find it pretty interesting how guitars can be so different.

Hey all - I was just searching around on the Internet looking at guitars...  New Years Resolution - start learning to read music!  And I am wondering what the difference is between a dreadnought and a folk style guitar?  I know you all will know!

That's funny!  Ha - no next guitar for him!  It's going to be for me.  I think I'll spring it on him....soon :)  I can't believe how much he loves it though.  I am soooo happy.  Since he hadn't had one in so long I wasn't sure he really still wanted to play.  He dug out some of his old sheet music (that I guess he held on to) last night!

Mine seem to sound best around 55% RH (maybe that was the RH at the factory where they were built).

Great - Thanks!  My husband's hygrometer says it is 56% humidity.

Sorry - I just figured out the search link above and found the posting in my own post.  I think it was Dreadman said 40% - 60% is ideal.

Ok guys!  We've got the humidifier installed and the hygrometer.  What is a good humidity range for the case?

Haha!  I'm thinking about the Washburn :)  Right now I have a beginner book on reading music and chords.  After we get the house back in shape I can start focusing on that!

My husband did not suspect a thing..well, not until I wrapped it and put it under the tree.  I got a big electic bass box that I used to put around the case to try and disguise the design....  It worked because it was so streamlined even I looked at it and said...wow, if that's a guitar - looks like a real baby guitar.  He said he had no idea that he couldn't figure out the odd shape of the package :)

....and I am pleased to say that HE LOVES IT!!!!  I'm glad I went with the Alvarez because the first thing he said was he never thought he'd have an Alvarez again...  He picked it up and started playing and we were late for Christmas dinner with my family :).  He said he's going to play a little bit each day to build up his fingers and he wants to take lessons.  Now - I think he plays GREAT and knows a ton of different songs but he says he needs lessons so in a couple of months we're going to look into that!  Thought I'd let you guys know!

Ditto!  Thank you all for your support and helping me find my husband the perfect Christmas gift....I hope :)...  I'm just dying to give it to him!  I can't wait!!!

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Reading sheet music

Hey - are guitar music and piano music similar?  I was thinking about getting back into the piano a bit and relearning how to read music before I launch into the guitar....though - after my husband gets his for Christmas....I might change my mind ;)

Hi - Welcome to the forum!  I can't help you much as I don't even have a guitar but these folks here are the best!!!  If I get into guitar - I'm pretty sure I'm going with the D10 as so many on here recommend it.  As far as changing the strings on the guitar - I recently purchased one for my husband and that is exactly what the owner of the shop did.  In fact, he was in the middle of changing them when I arrived.

Dan was awesome and I had the privledge to see him in concert several times, the last one being in 2003.  Here is my favorite!

Watching the sun
Watching it come
Watching it come up over the rooftops.

Cloudy and warm
Maybe a storm
You can never quite tell
From the morning.

Chorus
And it's going to be a day
There is really no way to say no
To the morning.

Yes it's going to be a day
There is really nothing left to
Say but
Come on morning.

Waiting for mail
Maybe a tale
From an old friend
Or even a lover.

Sometimes there's none
But we have fun
Thinking of all who might
Have written.

And maybe there are seasons
And maybe they change
And maybe to love is not so strange.

The sounds of the day
They hurry away
Now they are gone until tomorrow.

When day will break
And you will wake
And you will rake your hands
Across your eyes
And realize

That it's going to be a day
There is really no way to say no
To the morning.

Yes it's going to be a day
There is really nothing left to say but
Come on morning.

One time we kept the tree until like February or something :)  We have bad cats and the one named Ozzie would probably use the guitar as a scratching post knowing him :)
