One of my uses for my LKV (raising 1,2 and 7) goes in tandem with pedals down (a nice major-7th chord across the top six strings!) and I, too, make full use of the leverage that Mike mentioned.

Hi, Bud.

The important thing for me is to be able to lower the 5th as well as raising or lowering my Es at the same time as being able to use pedals. So I don't think the Day/Emmons factor is impor ...

I agree, Mike! I know many put it (or inherit it, anyway) on LKV but for me it's on RKL on all my guitars.

The vertical is too awkward for me so I've assigned my least-used change (raising 1,2,7) ...

I knew Vic a little bit. He actually finished up with my red-and-maple ZB S-10 that I'd traded for a new D-10 from the late Eric Snowball.

I believe the residue of that band (the Kursaal Flyers) a ...

Strats and Teles, Les Pauls, etc etc? Old Martins? Well, they're certainly listed at high prices but, as has been said, we don't know the eventual outcome. It's safe to say, though, that there are a ...

I've lived in the US for twenty years now and I wonder, too, how many players there might be in London.

Back in my day we were a tiny handful of guys who played for a living. I did, BJ Cole was an ...

Very Happy

Yes, it did look as if you'd momentarily lost your usual grasp of good grammar.

I have an English pal who insists on spelling it 'Jerry Reid'!

Drives me crazy!

I love Alison's work - I always have. A true child prodigy who more than fulfilled that early promise.

So how is anyone making any money playing those tip-jar gigs with parking that expensive?

And Albert almost replicates the solo he played on Rodney Crowell's version some years earlier.

Albert and the Big 'E' - there's a couple of guys with some tricks up their sleeves.

Whoa!

That's not Greg on steel on the TV spot, is it? I'm afraid I don't know what he looks like.

I'm waiting for my CD from Amazon; I believe mine will be the extended version.

I will admit to being slightly envious of the GPS feature in smart phones but, for the few times I need one, it's not worth the $50-$60 per month extra it would cost me.

Bobby:

Do Legrandes outnumber push/pulls by a significant amount?

The production period for each is similar but the totals for each type are less clear.

Ooops - you're correct, Bobby. Thanks for the correction.

I'm in uncharted territory here!

Cut-tail it is.

I was really including all Emmons, including LeGrandes which are split-tail. But Bobby knows more than I do by miles so mine was just a guess. Regarding push/pulls he could well be correct.
