    Sounds like that new one is a decent fit for you. or are you concerned about stepping on the capo guy's place?

    He's been a member there and playing in the praise band for years. He's 20 something, a nice guy, and has a beautiful guitar and cool pedals, but is either lacking in skills or not interested in improving. That sounds mean, but it's true. :)

    Years ago we went there occasionally for Wednesday night suppers and they would sometimes be starting band practice. They've improved a lot since them and actually sound good as a group. They are just missing a lot of the original guitar work that's in the songs.

    I'd be glad to show him some technique and how to play the licks their music is missing. Maybe we could do some two part harmony stuff.

    Perhaps you should rename this thread.
    ..."Guitar wangers" would might maybe be more appropriatererer.

    he is still finishing it. There's a whole series on the build since it's my idea and he had to design it around what I wanted. I have been able to watch it being built from the beginning. He just added the dots on top of the fret board today and sent me a pic. Next is to string it up and tap tune it and adjust the F holes for tone.. then it gets a french polish finish. I am saving all but 1 octave mandolin song for the second cd so I can use it.

    I am still learning as a drummer but I have been recording. I finished all my tracks for 1 cd recently, just vocals left and 4 tracks for the next. I have to do many many takes for the drums LOL. I will have the first cd out this month! It's country though. My lyricist friend sends me a lot of country type songs so I worked with those a lot. I write more to the rock side of things

    I'm sorry that I can't hang out and discuss string gauges and height above the fretboard.
    I DO think that you haven't had enough Terry.

    Sorry Pip, I thought YOU were building it. It' going to be gorgeous.
    Country is cool. Not quite my bag, but if you want dip yer toes into drummin', I would suggest starting with early blues, and jazz. Do you read? Maybe seek professional help. Once you can play jazz, you can play anything....
    Speaking of country, I live a couple miles (that would be around 4-5 kilometres, eh) SW from Randy Travis.
    You could make it easy and use computer-generated drums.
    Ain't that what everybody does?

    yup that guy is insane. so many bloody drums he needs extra kick drums for when he spins around LOL

    Oh I am just starting with country. I am doing a folky cd, rock, metal and even doing a children's cd. I am not going to be pigeon holed as I love all kinds of music. I am just not good enough to do any jazz stuff other than with bass (my main instrument actually)... I just love learning to play stuff...

    and yes I do use programmed drums for some stuff, but I write wierd bridges and stops on a lot so programmed drums just can't follow
