Thread: Really Excited

    Default Really Excited

    In this post I just wanted to share my excitment.

    Out of the blue, my Dad bought me a Washburn 12 string guitar, it sells for $700.00 at Musician's Friend, and since I haven't played acoustic seriously for years, I went Truefire shopping and purchased:
    Fretboard Epiphanes
    Slap Thump and Frail
    50 Acoustic Licks

    Can't wait to get started

    You'll have a lot of fun with both, I bet.

    I did a blog on the Acoustic Guitar Licks course, you can read it in the Blog section. It was really fun.

    Welcome to the acoustic side, enjoy the guitar and the courses

    I love Washburn Acoustics! They are so underrated and can be got used on eBay for a GREAT price. I have a six string I paid $80 (went new for $500 I believe) that has a solid spruce top...I love the tone of it!

    Congrats on the new guit and courses!!

    Congrats on a new guitar, probably the best motivator, except and impending private lesson w/ Brad Carlton, to get you playing more.

    Tev & I are in the process of blogging epiphanies, and would love for you to pipe in.

    Interesting all the love for Washburn. I might be looking at a new acoustic this summer, and hadn't really thought much of them. Would love to hear your feedback on the new baby.
    Honey, I'm spending money on guitars or women, ... your choice.

    If you take Satan for a ride, pretty soon he'll want to drive.

    Can you post a picture of your 12-string?

    How does it feel to play it? Harder than your electric? What is the neck like? Is it a thick neck?

    I just had a thought...

    I wonder if anyone has ever taken a 12-string guitar and tuned the secondary strings (or whatever they are called) to something other than the Octave? For instance, tune the secondary strings to a 5th rather than the Octave?

    Would it make it sound too muddy? Might work fine for solos but will probably sound horrible for rhythm. I think I am coming to the conclusion that this wouldn't work very well.

    Wow, congrats on the new guitar, good choice with the courses. I don't know much about fingerscapes, but the other 3 you've got are ones that I've played around with and love.

    Mahalo for sharing my enthusiasm.
    Now I either have to quit work or quite sleeping to learn from those courses I bought
