Nice playing Hoss. I love those Kalamazoo guitars. I am convinced what makes the sound so good is the lighter bracing Ginson threw in them.

Yes... compared to my L-00 which has the cross bracing this one is brighter and a tad louder.

I realized that advertising these lessons might be an issue. What I'll do is keep further posts restricted to either dialogue or the offering of free songs and free mini lessons. Would that do?
