Greetings!!!

Post by 3sammyman » Sun Jun 04, 2017 8:38 pm

Wanted to say Hi. This is my first ever message on your forum. I am a retired musician but alas it's not as a guitarist. I've always been interested in the guitar, all genres of guitar, but at best am a beginner even though I've struggled for years. I have a Raimundo 148 concierto as wall as other acoustics, electrics, and both a tenor and baritone ukule. I've enjoyed following along for years but just registered so I'll be able to chime in a little. Anybody with any interest in my past life can take a look on YouTube and type in ''Les young Verdi Requiem''. It's from a performance I sang on PBS. I've sung all over the world... Lincoln center, Carnegie hall, across the USA, Russia, London, Finland and other countries. Did several things on PBS and TV, recorded at Abbey Road Studio. So now you know a little about me. I'm retired, unfortunately because of a truck that ran a relight and My wife is a music professor at a college. My user name comes from Us being on our 3rd Samoyed sled dog.... :D

Best to everyone

This is been a good summer and fall for me in terms of shadows find my guitar acquisition problem… I got a couple new ones that are pretty interesting Plus helped a friend of mine get his dream guitar which was fun. Specially since I wasn't the one that was having to pay for it :-)

I bought a toy and then get carried away I guess now it's done and waiting to get picked up and I can't wait. Got a Martin size 5 custom. Indian Rosewood with Spruce, thinned top with light weight bracing, slot head, as a unusual custom back strip and also a an inlay at the 12th fret. Also has a Sunburst. I'm going up to Martin to pick it up The middle of next month so that should be a fun time. Also got a Córdoba C10 crossover with a thinner and smaller neck on it. I'm wanting to put A pick up on this one so I'm still trying to decide what to do. Couple people I've seen really talk nicely about the Barbera pick up and I'm wondering how a Baggs LB6 would compare. I'll make a post asking that question a little later on to see if anybody has any opinions would compare. I'll make a post asking that question a little later on to see if anybody has any opinion . So it's nice to of added a little bit to my arsenal, although would be better to add a little better playing to it… :-(

Also went through a friend looking for a new one and going with him to try stuff out and then buying an Antonio Marin Moreno classical. Workmanship is unbelievable, words are unbelievable, and sounds fantastic and has a huge sound… Had a very pretty price tag too, but he's saved for a long long long time and doesn't have too many other places so he treated himself. So that was fun being involved in the buying of something like that.

So hope to have something to talk about in the future and hearing from some of y'all

I guess if I get a pick up for my new nylon string and already have one in my 028 VS Martin that has a pick up in it but I'm going to have to look around for real acoustic amp instead of only using my Roland micro cube…... that has a pick up in it but I'm going to have to look around for real acoustic amp instead of only using my Roland micro cube…
