Compliments to you on this fine Acoustic Tuesday, Guitar Geek!!!
As Spring arrives gazes are drawn towards the tree branches for fresh buds, the ground for tender green sprouts, and of course towards the guitar geek radar to see if any new inspiring things have come up.
And boy howdy have they…
Here are 5 guitar geek things pinging the #guitargeek radar this week.
#5 Proper Fuel For the #Guitargeek
How does a guitar geek stay properly fueled, hydrated, and alert? You may think bourbon is the answer, but I reckon it is quite the contrary. See bourbon, although it tastes delicious, doesn’t do much for hydration or the alertness aspect. However, Fretboard…

#4 A Book Full Of Life Changing Moments
Books about artists and their life fascinate me, my bookshelves at home are covered with biographies, autobiographies, and the like. So this book was a bit of a surprise to me…

#3 What’s on the Turntable This Week?
This week’s artist I would say is from the “old-time” category, but I definitely do not want to pigeon hole them as they are capable of way more than old time music. It’s not often that you hear a new artist that is able to take you back to a time and place long forgotten and only best conjured up by an artist from that very era…

#1 What the Heck is the CAGED System

You hear how wondrous it can be at unlocking the fretboard, you hear about how much it can help with your overall understanding of the fretboard, and how it’s the secret to making sense of the fretboard.

Help— Guys, I am turning 50 and my wife has offered to buy me a new guitar. Price is not a huge concern at all. I have a Taylor 612 1st edition which I love because it’s super easy to play/really comfortable. I have a Taylor GS mini for travel. Meh. It’s fine. I have a 1931 Martin 0-18 which is in fantastic shape and sounds the best of all my guitars… but the deck is a little beefy and it’s less comfortable than my 612. That’s it for acoustics.
I am thinking about a pre-war guitars 14 fret guitar– I don’t have any 14s– to add to my collection.
So, I am looking for recommendations for this gift. What do you think?
I would definitely have a look at the PreWar Guitars OM… a swiss army knife with it’s longer scale length and smaller body. May very well add another tone to your already amazing guitarsenal!!!
