Is it YOUR Passion???


There are times in everyone’s life that the experience of finding success and having it spur you on to greater accomplishments is truly what makes us WANT to do things.

It’s my hope that as you spend more time playing the guitar, you too… will find success and this in turn will lead you to keep working on how to become a better player… how to learn that “next” tune. After all, if you don’t have a “passion” for playing the guitar… most likely you won’t find it necessary to keep going; building those calluses… learning more chords...and discovering new riffs.
Passion is the “buzz” word for the day. What exactly are you passionate about… let’s hope it is… or will be playing the guitar. Now, let’s not forget… to keep our fingers on the fret-board and keep jamming!!

The Taylor T5 - Hybrid



I have a Taylor T5 that I purchased for the purpose of jamming with the band.  I have found that (for me) the best way of using my T5 is by having "super light acoustic strings".  I have found that this is most comfortable for me to play...using the T5.  However, to get the full range of acoustic volume has been a bit of a stuggle... for the lower end is a bit weak.  So I still use my 814CE for the acoustic tunes... like James Taylor tunes.  Fun guitar to play though... like a dream.  I still might put a LR Baggs Ibeam in it to see if I can create that epic sound that I'm after.  If you've tried this... let me know...
