Nice @Pretzel!

I'll get a photo of my old LP Recording Studio.

Here are my acoustic guitars:

What is the guitar on the right there? I haven't previously seen an acoustic with a sound hole like that. How different does it sound from the traditional sound hole directly in the center of the guitar?

It is a McPherson acoustic.  The sound hole makes the bass E and the A strings more powerful.  Also the neck does not touch the top and the braces inside never touch each other inside.  I will get some photos for you.  All of this makes for a guitar that sounds pretty amazing and pretty loud like you are playing through an amplifier but with the great sound.  Many of the top country stars are using them.  They are not cheap though.  I may also know a guy who makes them. ;-)

My band just commissioned an Epiphone Casino for me to play ONE song during our show season.  I'll be sporting a John Lennon model and playing the parts played by George Harrison on Hello Goodbye.

And I'll tell you what, the guitar sounds EXACTLY like George Harrison parts in the song.  Just incredible what playing the correct guitar used during recording does for the accuracy and authenticity of the tone in the song.  My only beef is having to lug along, prepare and keep another guitar ready to play during our summer shows.

I'm getting lazy in my old age.  Can't I just play my favorite stratocaster all night?

Love the Cardinal red!  Here's my 2015 Epi Les Paul Standard, which I modded by upgrading the electronics.  I replaced the tone pots with push/pulls so I could split the seymour duncan pearly gates neck and distortion bridge humbuckers.  Huge improvement over the alnico classics that came with her.

Don't have a guitar picture but was curious about the best approach for someone that wants to learn to play. I know nothing about reading music, but have a guitar at home I want to learn to play.

It really depends on your objectives.  But playing guitar is ultimate about playing songs so you're going to want to learn songs.

Learn a few chords (specifically G, C, D, Em, Am) and get fluid with changing from one to another while strumming.  Find some songs that use some of those chords, there are tons of them, pick some you like and learn them.  Strum and sing.  This is how many start.

Rocksmith 2014 is pretty fun, especially if you want to learn to play songs as you progress.  Marty Schwartz' youtube lessons/pointers are really easy to understand as well.

    • In the video, one of them had #7 as their favorite hole 🙂 Then sadly he liked #9 Here are my course reviews... Lac La Belle - 6.0/10 Visually this course is good. The mix of fescue, bunkers, and marshy areas outline the holes nicely. There is a lot of target golf going on here. Some of the holes were a bit wonky, like hole #2. Also, the 600 yard par 5 was kind of bad. I am just glad that the fescue was not thick and tall, it was very playable from. If not, this course would be unbearable. The massive putting green with basically a putt putt course was really fun. In the end, it's a good course, but I would not enjoy playing this course a lot. Just too much target golf.  Course Layout - 5/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Lawsonia - 7.0/10 I really enjoyed this course. It has a unique style that isn’t around my area. Holes 1 thru 8 were good. For me, a bit too many blind tee shots. Holes 9-18 were more open from the tee. Luckily, there wasn’t much in the terms areas the ball would end up unplayable on the holes with blind tee shots. If you aimed over the mounds, and hit a decent shot you would have a shot at the green. There was a good variety of holes. This course was really fun to play.  Course Layout - 7/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 6/10, Clubhouse - N/A Mammoth Dunes - 8.0/10 A visually stunning course. It is much more of a friendly course than Sand Valley due to the green complexes having more areas to feed the ball into the green on errant shots. Each hole was like a problem to solve off the tee even though there was wide landing areas. I really enjoyed playing this course. The first tee shot of the day was really awesome teeing off from an elevated tee over looking over the expanse of the property. It really gives you a sense of the grand scale of the course. The bins of water on the course were nice since  you have to walk the course.  Course Layout - 8/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Sand Valley - 8.5/10 A visually stunning golf course. The green complexes are tough with a premium on hitting the flat areas or areas with backstops. Balls would routinely run off the edges where severe slopes were located at. When you miss the green, you usually had a few options to play. Mostly, the high risk through the air or try to putt it to a spot on the green for a longer putt. I think the back nine is much stronger than the front nine. Overall, I prefer the test of this course.  Course Layout - 9/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Bonus - Sandbox - 10/10 This little gem of a course is just a joy to play. Each green complex is unique and with the variety of pin placements and tee boxes changing daily, each time playing is slightly different. I thoroughly looked forward to starting every day at the Sandbox. 
    • I guess it's easier for some people to think that their enemy is a cult rather than a bunch of informed individuals. Saves one the bother of introspection. 🙃
    • I am watching that thread.  Just in wait & see mode
    • Nah. Folks like Thomas can't fathom that a bunch of people can independently arrive at the conclusion that he's a dope. So it must be that I have "minions" (his words) who just suck up to me. Ha. As if.
