Frank in the swamps Guitars..what do you play? (227* d) RE: Guitars..what do you play? 07 Nov 98


There was a guy once who got his moneys worth out of a martin. He was freezing to death and used it to start a fire.

For classical, I have an Alvarez Yairi (spell?), a good instrument, but small sounding. I used to play a Taylor, probably the sweetest sounding guitar I ever had, but I never could get used to that skinny little neck, then a friend sold me a Lowden. What a bully critter! A finely balanced, robust sound with a wide neck, and LOUD? I play with a bunch of folks who include violins, violas, double basses, mandolins, saxaphones, flutes, clarinets, pianos and on rare occasions, a tuba. Still my guitar is right there in the crowd, without amplification.

I did hear this fella get a reasonable facsimile of music out of a martin once, he threw a handful of marbles in it and used it for a rattle.

Frank i.t.s.
