I hope you're not counting me among the "naysayers", Mark Hershey. I really like what I've heard of him so far. I rarely buy vocal albums, but in his case I might make an exception.

Novato is a rich suburb of San Francisco, Bud, about 60 miles south of Cloverdale.

I prefer LPs too, for the liner notes and for the large format album art. And of course, for the sound.

I thought they really kicked ass! Not sure why they call Sturgill Simpson a country singer, though. I didn't hear a hint of country in either song.

I was mistaken about the tuners. Mine look a bit different. Nice guitar at a great price!

It's a Sierra Olympic. Never seen one with those tuners, though. Klusons? Mine (made in 1978) has Grovers. Maybe it was a custom order.

I see.

I usually write chord charts in whatever time would take up the least space. If the chords always stay for 4 beats, I would write 4/4 instead of 2/4 (or 2/2) for polkas.

When talking to a country drummer, it's best to think of it like this:

6/8 is stressed on the 1st and 4th beat, like Sleepwalk. The drummer will probably play 8th notes on his high hat.

3/4 is ...

I agree with Pete Burak. The pull will be either too long or too hard.

I don't like half-stops, so my lever just lowers 2 to D and 9 to C#. I use a pedal to get the D#-C# change. I know it's unor ...

I didn't know which he meant, so I gave the reasons for both. If the first string would be the high B (above pedal steel G#), it would break. If it was a middle B (like dobro string 2), the 7th and ...

If someone wanted a baritone E6th, perhaps as a novelty on a triple or quad neck, the low string should probably be B instead of C#. The C#-E interval would turn to mud in the low register.

You can't tune a string to high B without it breaking.

Having the 1st string as a middle B would turn the instrument into a baritone, which isn't very popular.
