      Thanks Kerry! So far I'm loving it. I've tried learning from friends, teaching myself, having a private teacher and another website. This is SOOO much better!

    1. DeeDee L

      DeeDee L

      Hi Philip from Denmark I did.  I sent you a msg here on TAC in your messaging.  

      Anyway in case you did not receive the msg let me thank you for the card.  Thank you. Kenny and I were flabberghasted that your stay at our home was a 2018 highlight for you.  It was totally our pleasure to have you stay. We really enjoyed your company and it is something we talk about occasionally about how fun and what a good guitar player and overall great guy you are.  Until we meet again cheers.

      Happy New Year to you and your family.  Cya around the forums.

  25. Hi, @Andrew. The link seems not to have worked, so here's a new one.
  26. Well, that's not exactly where I live. I am 20 miles NORTH of Boise in the Boise Mountains. Can't seem to pinpoint it any closer than that.

  27. Hey @Fletch! Hope you are enjoying your "Girl Time"! It's Monday again... countdown to the 7th. I hope your next few days are awesome!!

    If you're finding it a bit difficult to play, you'll usually get more benefit from a setup, i.e. adjusting the action - the height of the strings above the frets. Customers are almost never told that new guitars are shipped with action way too high for most users. 'Ideal' action depends on the user. If you play in a band and want loud booming bass and chords, you'll want it quite high so the strings don't rattle ('buzz') against the frets. If you play delicate fingerstyle, you'll want action so low it takes barely any effort to fret the string so you can play really fast and with big stretches with minimal effort. Some stores will ask you about your preference on action, and a lot will include the cost in the deal, but most will be biased against setting it too low. New customers will certainly complain if the stings buzz, and once lowered, raising the action usually means cutting a new nut and/or saddle, so makers set it high enough for Johnny Cash. Even if you do get a store setup, you need to talk to the luthier directly and play something for him so he knows how low he can go before getting complaints about fret buzz. If you've done all this, just ignore me, but if you're like the majority of first-time buyers, you've never given it a second thought. I still have a couple of guitars I bought as a teenager, and never had them checked out until recently. They play better than new, now that I've had them set up. Any music store should have a luthier on contract and will understand what you're asking for. If you're highly confident you know exactly what you want, you can find an independent luthier and skip the middle-man. Either way $50 will usually cover it. In future, always ask for a custom set up as a part of the purchase. There's always the chance there is something wrong with the guitar that is making it hard to play, especially if the guitar is older or hasn't been cared for with TLC. Any luthier will spot that before setting your action and quote you on fixing it. Better to know and deal with it. btw, string gauge is essentially the same decision. For big sound, go for medium strings; for light touch, go for lights or ultra-lights. There's no such thing as ideal strings and your preference will change as you get better and focus on a particular style. There's lots of ideas in the TAC forums and in Tony's product reviews. When I played nylon strings fro the first time, I bought a number of half-sets and individual strings to decide on the formulation and gauge I liked, then tried a few different makers based on reviews until I got the sound I wanted. It''s a journey. You'll find your way; enjoy the process.
