Hi, I guess I'm supposed to introduce myself before posting anything. My name is Mark. I'm from Florida, left handed. I've been playing guitar since I was a teenager (over 20 years), finger picking for about half that. I enjoy baroque/renaissance guitar, flamenco, and even listening to the lute, as well as, some steel string stuff and underground 80s music. I've probably only learned around 20 songs, if that. I learned by ear (don't read sheet music). I've spent most of my time playing the Yamaha CS40 (22 13/16", 580mm scale length) because I really don't have much of a stretch, even find it difficult to do the 3rd fret, low E, to 7th fret, high E, stretch. I feel the Yamaha CS40 scale length fits my hand really nicely, although, I sometimes feel it's a bit squashed (crave a longer scale), so I'm thinking of getting a full scale 650mm, or perhaps a 610mm, and using the capo on the 2nd or 1st fret, as if it were the nut, on most of the songs I play, BUT, even on the CS40, I sometimes use a capo on the 3rd fret, so I'd be playing with a capo on the 5th or 4th fret (which might be a bit constricting unless I get a cutaway) for a few songs if I were to use a 650mm or 610mm scale guitar. Anyhow you can find me on facebook and youtube. I really just came here to post a question about scale lengths, what makes a 3/4th or a 7/8th scale guitar, as I thought that I was playing a 7/8th scale guitar (the Yamaha CS40), but now I'm finding that the 610mm guitars are considered 3/4th scale, so yeah, I'm just a bit confused.
