Subject: RE: Info/Opinions RE: Martin Guitars
THanks for the Thread .This is one of my faverite subjects! I finger pick with brass finger picks and a thumb pick. I hit on the strings very hard.For that reason the 28{Rosewood} instroments sound like I'm molesting them where as the 18 {mahagony} family soke up or something that over exileration and sounds great. I have a 018 1949 that is my best freind.I had a 00028 years ago that did sound great in the studio but the warmth of the 018 fits what I do..I have never made a drednaught sound good. The soup has to meny flavors {overtones} for what I do.I love the sound of a d28 in Rick Starkies hands. I would love to hear his opinion here for reasons that wuold become obvius. More on the National and the Kay when they come up. Listen to Martin Carthy playing a small Martin.I wonder which Ry Cooder pieces are on a small martin or not? Cheers to al
