Paul Delay I've heard of, too.

The others, no bells are ringing.

The electric is a Magnatone from the mid fifties; the Acoustic is likely from the Twenties, and has been jerried together by Fatdog himself - it was pretty cheap. Lovely sound, though.

I raised the nut myself - I just shaped a hardwood piece and mounted the "original" nut on top of that.

Note the Schatten pickup on the Acoustic.

I`ll try the slides into the 12th fret. Tell me more about that . I assume 12th fret is same as open like it would be in conventional tuning.
So far what I am getting beside John Lees boogie is something that sounds like Little Red Rooster, something that sounds like the introduction to Spirit in the Sky combined or Canned Heats On The Road Again and something that resembles I`m a Man/ Hoochie Koochie Man. Its all fun.
Thanks again.
I learned from that site that my Songster is a 20 fret and rare version. Live and learn I guess. Not that it will ever matter to me one way or the other. I just like that sound that comes out of it no matter how many frets it has. Bobcat

2006-08-30T21:36:27+00:00 <![CDATA[Learning Tabs]]> That's great you are getting some kicks out of your Open G lap playing. Lots of cool things you can do sliding barre chords - don't forget to try those "Crossroads" type slides up to the 12th fret (treble strings). Try some Muddy Waters type stuff, maybe Bo Diddley beat stuff (bam-da-bam-da-bam--BAM-bam) - all within your reach.

I have my sights on a 1930s Slingerland - probably a May Bell parlour model though. Heard great things about that one.

2006-08-30T19:18:47+00:00 <![CDATA[Learning Tabs]]> After reading what ricochet was saying about the Slingerland I did a Yahoo on it and found that both were correct.
Gibson does use that trade name a a release for its lower line. But in addition to that there are still a few old Slingerland songsters out there from the original 30s era production.
I have a link to one for sale here:
Its an elderly guitar just like I`m an elderly guy but I think we both have a little blues left in us just waiting to get out.
here`s a link for Slingerlands in gereral. Very interesting especially the New Marvel #86 or Night Hawk Style 83

Cheers. Bobcat

2006-08-30T18:57:18+00:00 <![CDATA[Learning Tabs]]> I know of some pretty good examples of musicians that are very well educated. Jack Bruce being one as a graduate of the Scotish Consevtatory of Classical Music (IIRC). He didn`t let that get in his way when playing good rock and roll or blues. Who knows it might even have helped him.
Seems like to me that tabs is a bare minimal for someone like myself lacking a gift in music and not having the ability to just play what I hear right off. In my case I just see it as a shortcut. Cheers. Bobcat
