Hi --

I just registered the other day. Great site! I've been a country blues fan/picker for a long time (just turned 49 last month). Can't seem to get the Juke Radio on my work PC as of yet, but I'll keep working on it.

Welcome Mark! What software are you using to try to listen to the Juke?

Uncle Bud --

I'm using Windows Media Player. It looks like I'll have to check with our IT group, they've got it set up so I can't modify the proxy settings.

Hello All,

I've just discovered this website via the Woodshed; thanks for that Gerry! I'm 19 and from the UK, currently Kent. I missed my grades to go to university to study politics and philosophy (one mark... still slightly bitter and twisted) and so am on an impromtu gap year. I've changed course direction (I'll be doing English Lit. in September) and I decided to do something vaguely useful in the meantime, so I enrolled on a bunch of OU courses on creative writing and told myself I'd learn guitar. As such I've only been playing the guitar for approx. 9 months, at first I just borrowed my grandma's nylon string acoustic (how rock and roll is that! I've got a small collection of second-hand instruments of my own now) and taught myself all the chords, I then tried to strum along to a Simon and Garfunkel song and realised:
1) for some reason Paul Simon tunes his guitar below concert pitch
2) he wasn't strumming, he was picking the strings.
That was the first time I'd ever really come across finger-picking, and I resolved to learn how to do it, cue musical oddessy encompassing 60s British folk/blues guitarists (Davy Graham, Bert Jansch John Renbourn etc) and assorted acoustic blues artists. I'm still very much at the beginning of this musical experience, but am having a lot of fun along the way.

Loving the Jukebox Radio!

I've been enjoying this site for nearly two years and have been negligent about posting here.  So, let me thank everyone for the great music and the hundreds of insightful posts.  I'm a big fan of old Gibson guitars, Roy Book Binder, and early country blues.  I live in New Hampshire and spend as much time as I can playing and learning.  Thanks again to everyone for making this such a terrific resource.

Just recently found this INCREDIBLE site and have been going through alot of interesting threads.
I'm a lifetime guitar player and most recently concentrating strictly on acoustics (sold off the Les Paul).  I'm a big fan of MJH and RGD along with Alvin Youngblood Hart and Ernie Hawkins.  I live in Vermont, near Burlington, an great place for local music like Paul Asbell.

I'll be around....jb

Love the Jukebox too...
