OK, decided to keep my D10 out so it's always near me so I can play more!! I'm making a stand out of some red oak and want to know what finish I should use on the oak. I want a clear finish but don't want to use anything that would react with the guitars finish. I'm using felt to pad the places where the guitar will touch stand. Thanks for reply's. Truk.

Hey, I need some encouragment or a kick in the pants! It seems since I got laid off in november I can't seem to get my head into practicing. This really is starting to bum me out and I need to do something about it because I just started learning to play 4 months before that. I sit around and talk to the wife which isn't a bad thing but I have plenty of time now to practice. Tell me something to get me going again------ Please!!!! You people have been my best insperation when I first started now I need you to get me going again!! Thanks, Truk.

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Which guitars open up?
« on: November 12, 2008, 11:52:35 PM »
Read a post about guitars that open up after they are played. Do they have to be all solid wood or do the laminated sides and backs open to? I have a D10SN, what will happen to this as far as opening up? Thanks!!

Hey, I've been looking ahead as to parts I'll need when I do some changes to my D10S like bridge and nut and strings. I asked Washburn about a tortise pick guard for my D10 and they e-mailed me back with a price of $16.00 plus $7.50 to ship. Kind of high cost for that item don't you think? Don't want to ruffle any feathers but shocked me a little. I seen some where on the forum about someone making pick guards but can't find through the search. Would love one made out of the same wood on the sides of the D10. Can anyone direct me? Thanks,Truk.

Hello, Anyone around the Hayward, Wi. area. I'm moving to my place on the Chip and would like to learn from some people that like folk,country, and some blues maybe. I just started playing 3wks. ago so I'm a beginner for sure. Also I'm 53yrs. old but age doesn't mean anything to me, I just want to learn as much as I can. I have a D10SN. Thanks, Truk.

All this talk of getting together to jam with others has got me thinking. Anyone live near Green Bay, Wi.? If so I want to learn!! Thanks, Truk.

Well had an interesting week! First I practiced alot for next weeks lesson, then found out that you should not use an industrial cleaner without gloves for it will eat off any calluses you have built up and you have to start over with the pain of tender fingers. Also had my end pin come out, just as I was putting up guitar for the night, but I caught it before the floor!! I ran across nextlevelguitar, what are your thoughts about using some of their info to go along with a teacher taught lesson. Just seen a few things that would be fun to try but don't want to get off track. Still alot of fun!! Truk.

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / 1st. lesson
« on: September 21, 2008, 08:45:14 PM »
Well my 1st. lesson was great!! While my teach was on vacation I practiced trying to get good tones from the strings on a few chords and he said I impressed him!! I have very sore fingers right now and am very pumped about what I'm learning this week. He even spent some extra time with me for free. He checked out my D10 and adjusted the neck a little. Also gave me alot of homework to get done in 1 week, so see-ya later. Truk.

Hello, Waiting to post until my D10S arrived. Have played a few instraments over my 53yrs. but always wanted to learn the acoustic so I finnally took the plunge and bought one from RGG. Got a great deal and a great looking and sounding guitar. Going to take a few leasons first to get started right until I learn more about playing and improvements to the guitar. Already have read all forum post so I feel I know some of you already and looking forward to your input because I tend to ask before I go wrong. Thanks!! Truk.
