Hey Tom. I was just for some reason at the Wartz event I posted and just saw your name there. I'm glad to see that you are planning to come to my neck of the woods again. It'll be good to see and talk to you again.
I just spent ages trying to relocate the Cat Stevens Father and Son thread you posted up; found it eventually. And wanted to say thank you for taking the time to do so; it's one of my favourites and I took time today to fiddle with the music adding fill-in strums ad lib, which worked, much to my surprise, first time I've done that.
Do you know if anyone ever did the guitar solo part at all? I have a CD with the song on, so I'll be listening to it and trying to work something out.
Anyway, many thanks, once again, for giving me the base on which to build and the tools as to how to go about it. Up until now, the furthest I got with my arrangements was melody picked over the strings, for tunes such as the Godfather theme but here's hoping to expand them a little more now into tunes with a bit more substance, not that the pure melody sound isn't great in itself but it would sound even better with some chords and such around it.
Yes, the loop is a very intriguing tool but pay attention it is addictive :)
Very useful when you have to study something while you play alone.
A lot of interesting videos here. I think I'll be back soon.
Thanks for passing by
No 1.5 fret on any of mine
Tom, thanks for adding me as a friend. I will ask my husband if he has any relatives in kentucky. Holthus is not a very common name. Most of his relatives are in Nebraska.

Hi Tom. Thanks for the freind request. I thoroughly enjoyed the day spent with you folks.Hope things go well with you and Dean's gig. You sounded mighty fine to me. Best wishes.
Hey Tom, it'll take us almost 5 hrs to get there. What time will you be there so wee can plan on meeting up with you?
Hey Tom, Jerry Rockwell's doing a noter class on Saturday the 11th at Salem!
Tom, Though I live in Fairmont now, I'm from Oklahoma. That is the weekend of the Fort New Salem Dulcimer Festival in Salem, just east of Clarksburg (south of Fairmont 15 miles.) Was planning to attend that, but would be free after for a little jamming!
Hey Tom that was really nice. I enjoyed hearing The Rose in a different key.
Hi Tom , I am new to this site (well since July 2011) I noticed that you were considering glass fibre to reinforce one of your cases.- Good Idea . Did you do it ?
You will see on my site 2 photos of the case I sort of built myself. I intend to put up as a blog (shortly when I have checked the spelling and grammar )how my case came about. You never know may be helpful to someone. Only down side is the weight. I now have one arm longer than the other
