Hi folks .  Wanted to pass along I hope what will be a helpful "gear" update:

I had recently come across a Capo called the Performance 3 made by G7th Capos in the UK.  I have never been so delighted with a capo.  It is very easy to use with no screw bolts, snaps or handle squeezes. Most important to me in addition to its slim deign and simplicity, is that retuning if at all,,is negligible. It is the most effective and easy to use capo I have ever used.   . You will not be disappointed I can assure you. I have one appropriate for my new Taylor 12 sting, as well as my six string instruments. I will be ordering one for each guitar. Here is the link for more info https://www.g7th.com/p3

What kind of guitars do you play??

I am asked this pretty often.

I love to perform with a quite remarkable Collings OMHC model guitar. It's not just the quality of the build and sound, but talso the complexity of the overtones that I find quite remarkable. I hear things that contiune to inspire me all the time. It is just amazing.

I do still sometimes tour with Yariri Alvarez DY88's, one black (Mandy), and one blue, (Randy). These guitars have been the tools of my trade, mostly in the early stages of my career. They are very dependable, very brilliant stage guitars.

In the band, I play a 1972 Gibson Les Paul Custom guitar that my father bought for me at the time. It has been with me since my high school bands. One of these days, I am going to add a Fender Strat American Deluxe. I love that guitar too.

I sometimes utilize a Tacoma DM9. It is a nice sounding guitar and offers the agility of an electric guitar for me anyway. It is real easy to get around on the neck of this instrument which makes it a lot of fun to play.
Thanks to the Three Rivers Folksong Society In Richland Washington. for that one.

I also on occasion, play a National Resophonic guitar. Audiences really seem to enjoy the sound and experience of the guitar. I guess I should take it out more often. The National is just plain old fun. I use several different tunings to generate lots of interesting music, never a dull moment.
