Nora Guitars..what do you play? (227* d) RE: Guitars..what do you play? 19 Dec 98


I haven't logged on to Mudcat in ages because, as it happens, I just acquired my first guitar and I am spending all my time playing it - no time for computerized diversions. Funny I should come across this thread.... Guitars are all I want to talk about.

It's a Washburn jumbo D-25S (got it for *very* cheap). It's loud and quite bassy (makes me sing louder), and the action is a little high; it feels best with light gauge strings. I may get around to adjusting the action some, but it feels pretty good as is. I've played quite a few friends' Martins, Taylors, Yamahas, Alvarez', Takamines and others. One pal just got a Lowden and it sounds wonderful. The other night I played a hacked-up old Harmony that another friend picked up as junk and glued back together. It sounds pretty good and feels great. you really never know.

I've never really played guitar before, but am seeing some progress already. I have become a pretty lame guitarist. Soon I hope to be moderately competent. I am having a blast, which is the point, really.
