  • Biography
    Grew up one block from the Gulf of Mexico in Venice Florida. Started playing guitar using my sisters Sears Silvertone. It had no strings so I used various thickness’s monofiliment fishing line. Played that thing constantly but my parents didn’t realize how much I wanted to learn and did nothing to get me some formal instruction. Next guitar I bought after getting out of the Army. I still have that Yamaha FG430. I’m 60 now and it’s an full blown obsession. I’m still thrilled anytime I am able to learn something new.

  1. Same situation with a. cyst on the back of my left wrist. I accidentally banged it on the edge of a table and it’s gone!
  2. I just use some small towels for my monitors and mixer. BTW those are some bad ass monitors you have there.
  3. All of your responses are greatly appreciated for sure. I’m going to go with Daddymacks advice and sit him down and establish some goals he/we should be aiming for. Again I’m not in this to achieve success as a musician ie... going out and performing. I just need to step back and put things into perspective. Call me soft but I really like the guy and don’t want to make things awkward. On a positive note he makes my playing sound fantastic!!!!!
  4. I feel terrible. I’ve been playing with my partner for a year or so but it’s starting to wear on me. Don’t misunderstand me his heart is huge and you’re hard pressed to try and not like him. Problem is that he never practices, makes no attempt to polish his playing, refuses to try and become proficient with the digital world and has zero ability to play a song using the proper rhythm and vocal timing. But he’s a wonderful person. I’ve no aspirations of achieving any sort of success as a musician. This is something that I do for enjoyment. Fact is, I find myself not having any fun. Thoughts or advice from all of you would be wonderful and respected.

    Yamaha MG10XU Mixer

    You won’t be disappointed with this mixer. I especially like that it uses only rotary controls rather than slides. It’s chassis is tough enough to be used outside during traveling without any special treatment.
  6. Thanks for all the replies from everyone. I’ve been playing for about forty years but over the last ten years there’s been a remarkable improvement with my playing. Thanks in part to some very good lessons and a patient instructor. Sometimes I just have to start laughing because I will be playing something a little complicated and my mind will wander just for a second and what was a great performance turns into a mess. Maybe it’s time to go back and get some instruction on playing guitar and singing simultaneously. I’m not going to give up you can count on that. Thanks again for everyone who replied to my post.
  7. Does anyone have suffer from this problem? I can sing pretty good and I can play guitar pretty good but the minute I try and do both I go completely mental. Typically I will butcher the guitar playing sometimes if I even think about singing.
  8. That pitch pipe brings back some good memories. Thanks for the pic!
  9. What are some of the common effects used with acoustic music. I have a Taylor 314ce, Fishman loudbox and Aura AST pedal
