Some things are needed for the right Vintage Twang: The right boots, hat, drums, and lap steel. Everyone else supplied the rest!





My favorite musical instrument! You can feel it in your bones! Great instruments and hats everyone. I am trying to figure out how to hang a hat on one of my harmonicas! Sure like them straw hats. I will need one real soon!

Looking good teach. How does that Taylor sound? I like A style mandolins. I have one hidden at work to pass the time.

I agree. For finger pickin my wife's small body K22 is the best sounding newer accoustic we have owned. I am still dreaming of a Martin D28 from the 30's but price range is a factor.

Here's my VS Stendahl in black cherry on my celtic harp. It's like the kind on the Guiness bottle with metal strings. I was a serious guitarist for many years but carpal tunnel ended my guitar playing days in the 1980s so in 1997 I took up the harp:

Here's the harp itself if anyone is interested.

...carpal tunnel ended my guitar playing days...

Yeah, I'm getting a little concerned about that myself. Been playing more than 45 years but the last 7 months or so I've put in a lot of time sometimes 6-8 hours in one go and now I got a cyst on my left wrist and a little pain in my left elbow. When I was younger I could play for days at a time and up until now never had no problems - I'm wondering if it's the neck profile on this Martin - it's similar to what I've always used but takes more pressure to play even though the action set up is identical to my other dreads and they're all really easy to play. Not sure why that is - fret size on all of them is about the same, action is the same but the Martin takes more effort - not that much more that it's an issue with the guitar when I'm playing it but playing it for a lot of hours seems to add up into some physical effects.

My hands are fine and I can play fiddle/bluegrass stuff on guitar faster than they need to be played but I think this is something to do with the guitar - profile too flat maybe. I should probably use the other guitars more might take the load off but this D-18 sounds like rolling thunder and I can't put it down...lol
