"I wonder if maybe that is too many sound holes for best acoustic sound. But man, it has the LOOK. Proportions, that resonator and biscuit, nice biscuit, great looking finger board, peg head and yup the sound holes look great. GDGB? DGBE or DGBD?"
"wouldn't that be GDGB ? anyways, any of the sets Gitty sells should work fine.
i prefer D'Addario's myself. 13-17-26-36 if you like a lighter gauge, or 17-26-36-46
for a heavier tighter feel. i like the lighter gauge for finger or…"
Hey Myke...Thanks for the response. The Roland VS2480 is a fine machine. Not all that many folks recording on stand alones anymore...but i'm also one. I use a Boss BR1200Cd. I own no recording software. I've dabbled with Audacity but my Boss can do all the same stuff. I'm burned out on techy learning curves and dread ever having to move to a software based DAW...but there are clearly advantages there. Collaborations, for one. I have never connected my PC to my Boss...so everything gets done via CDRW's. Time consuming but it works and over the years I've done a dozen collabs or so. I see you are also a multi-instrumentalist. I guess us home based "Indie" guys have to be. You did a great job with the dobro on the songs I listened to. Who did the fiddle parts? Your builds are also impressive. That mando is awesome. I count at least 15. I've only done one, the "Buzzsaw"..a solid maple bodied electric with troubled intonation. I need another instrument like a hole in the head but i'd love an electric CBG. For some reason, instrument building is still intimidating to me, even tho I built my own house and barn and do rustic furniture and woodturning. Anyway, I think a collab might be fun if the song is right. Thanks for the offer...and it goes both ways. I do mostly all originals and have recorded songs in every genre from A-Z.
