And he told me... I didn't know nothing about how to play no guitar at all. He said "Hey, go home. Take my advice. You go home. You get that.. straight. You know what I'm talking about? Put that pick down. You think I'm scolding you? You a grown man, Hubert - listen to me!" I went home, man. I went to my basement. And I'm going to tell you something... I was thinking about what Wolf said. He said "Hey, put the pick down." I put the pick down, man. I put the pick down and started using... fingers, you know what I mean? - Hubert Sumlin, on how Howlin' Wolf introduced him to fingerpicking.

Another Dreaded Dred!
« on: October 09, 2010, 07:45:33 AM »
Since Dave showed us his recent dread and didn't get banned, I thought I'd show mine.  :D

12 fret slope shoulder, stained spruce top, mahogany b&s, maple headplates and binding, golden age 3 on a plate tuners.

This is my first venture into dread territory but I'm enjoying the change from the small grand concert and parlor sizes I've been building.





Even a short sound clip.

One thing about it these small boxes give you more guitar to hide behind. :D

Sorry about the double video and extra code numbers, obviously I'm not doing something right.

I fixed it for you. No need to copy all the imbedded stuff --- just include the youtube url and the forum will imbed it properly.

Another gorgeous dreadnaught, love the amber stain - sounds great too!

I also like it Joe, even though you piled on and stole all the attention I was getting!

Next I'm building a real blues box, a Grand Concert, for a world famous blues-man who I can't name, yet.

I heartily apologize Dave!
Although so far it's just you, me, and Slack, who had to come in and fix my bungled posting.  :D

Besides we just "need" more guitar pics on here.

Looking forward to seeing your GC and finding out who your blues-man is,
Joe

How about we start a new board and call it "G u i t a r  P o r n," with sub-boards like "Full-bodied," "Touch my Frets," and "Inlays"?

Of course I'm just joking Joe, I sort of like your company.
On that note, where are you? I have a friend in Bartlesville that I will be visiting soon I hope, maybe I can pass by your shop.

Tell me what you used for the video? it works for me.

Agree about more guitar pics.
