Have to agree with Rob , the Yamaha THR10 or 10C are a outstanding bit of kit ,you can edit any of the tones to cover almost any amp tone you like .
Then it's a interface for your pc or laptop so more editing and recording possibilities .

Love mine and its used daily , just about covers whatever guitar mood I'm in 🎸🎸🎵🎵 plus it's a brilliant
 Hi-Fi for the iPod or any mp3 player .

I think you may notice I happen to like the YAMAHA THR , mine is the 10c 🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸😀

That was really nice playing David 🎵🎵🎵🎵🎶🎶🎶

Would love to know more regarding your recording set up !!

Just going to have another listen 😁

Cheers man.

This is just recorded directly from my Colins All English guitar (photos attached) into a H2 zoom.

No effects or anything added, but cut using Audicity.

If going plugged in, I use my little YAMAHA-THR5 amp.  It is just brilliant and gives a slightly closer to CD quality sound, but of course you loose the acoustic sound and its not for the traditionalists.

The following track is using the THR5:

Looks lovely.  Crafter really make good guitars for their price range.  Love the body shape.  I hope I get a chance to here you play it.  Have you posted anything?

Acoustic Guitar / Re: Tanglewood or Faith Electro Acoustic Guitar
« on: December 04, 2015, 03:22:28 PM »

I have not played either guitar, but can say that Faith have an excellent reputation in the lower-mid price range acoustic guitars.  One thing to note is that the Faith looks to be a solid woods back and side and the Tanglewood laminate back and sides.  The later is normally much cheaper, though not necessarily worse.  All solid guitars tend to sound better as they get older, laminates stay the same.

My real advice is to not really listen to too many reviews or opinions, but actually go to some shops and try some.  Also actually buy the guitar you buy because these factory made guitars vary a lot.

Bring someone with you who can play (or get the store guys to play it for you) so you can hear what it sounds like.  The sound on a acoustic is different from when you are playing it  to standing in front of it.

Are you planning to play mostly plugged in?  Then try it plugged in.

Unfortunate the strings (brand and age) can seriously effect the sound, but if it sounds god with old strings it will sound even better with new..

The thickness,shape and scale of the neck will all be different and what is best is all down to personal preference.  You will only know this if you try it.   The thickness and shape of the body also really effects the comfort, particularly if playing sitting down.  To me the comfort of the guitar is really the most important thing as you are going to hopefully be spending a lot of time playing it!

Note a lot of factory guitars come in with a high action and can make a guitar feel awkward to play.  Its worth noting you can get a guitar setup for around ?50, so you may want to factor this into your costing.  Its probably worth doing if not already done by the dealer.

If you go around a few shops the likelihood is that your perfect guitar will jump out at you and hopefully not for above your budget. (In fact don't try the ones above your budget)

Yes its originally from:

One of the first tunes I learnt to pick about 4 years ago.  Its relatively simple to play if you can do the alternate picking (pretty much all I can do).  Its in drop d tuning  and just goes D,G,D,A.

I think I have changed it a little of the years, but cannot find the original to listen to.  From my memory he plays it a lot quicker and cooler!

Have you considered slide?

My latest effort.   Acoustic finger picking and very slow.  Still someone might like it!

Thanks for the welcome!

I am a big fan of Knopfler, Chet Atkins and Leo kottke, so if I fingerprinting (and Travis) was definitely the best place for me to start. 

As for alternative tunings I am still on standard or drop d.  Once I have completed the Art of Solo Fingerpicking I fancy learning a bit of Hawaiian slack key, which I believe will be a good introduction to alternative tunings.  Would love to learn a bit of slide, going into the world of open tunings.  Its going to take me some time to get there though!

Make Your Entrance / Learning to fingerpick
« on: September 02, 2015, 12:54:04 PM »

I started to learn guitar about 3-4 years as a bit of a mid-life crises.   Purchased a Taylor 314ce which was well to good for me, but used it as motivation to learn.  I have been learning from the excellent Mark Hanson books and am still only about half way through Art of Solo Fingerpicking.  Slow progress I know but I keep distracting myself with trying to write the odd tune.  Even though progress is slow learning the guitar its one of the best things I have done.  Trying not to think 'Wish I had done this earlier'.

I only play acoustic at this stage, but would love to have ago at electric at some point (perhaps a Taylor t5z).
