The Martinís were cool too but I donít get the Rockbridge thing other than that his friend makes them which I guess is reason enough. Iíve personally gone down the bourgeois rabbit hole and find their stuff better suited to me than most of what Iíve been playing over the past 20
Years.
What bourgeois do you play? Iíve almost pulled the trigger on one for years now but I already have too many redundancies in guitars I think... I just love rosewood dreadnoughts, and the Bourgeois Vintage D would be what I want...

I got a JOM with Tasmanian Blackwood sides and a European spruce top. I bought it NOS from Eddie's in St. Louis. It's the best guitar I've ever played.

I also got an OM LSH (large soundhole) which is lightyears better than my Collings OM which I sold. I'm a kool-aid drinker for Dana's top voicing.

Jealous... though you could have said any model and I would be covetous.
I picked up a Martin CEO-7 back in March... I love how it sounds, but I've decided I don't particularly mesh with its feel. I'm trying hard to make my feel relearn to it, but I'm about to decide it's a lost cause... which I hate because it really sounds so great

Isnít more of a great sounding blues box for the most part?

I was/am impressed with how warm it sounds as opposed to the drier tone of what I'd consider to be a pure "blues box"

I remember my first impressions of it being that I liked it a lot... Also, I've only seen DMB once or twice since that album even came out... so I've not been beaten to death with it at shows enough for it to sour in my mind as an overplayed crutch/set filler.

So, going back and listening to it again right now, I still like it.

I like the chromatic nature of the walk down, the droning root note through it all, tension between that root note, pedaling bass

Don’t mean to change course of this thread, or maybe this isn’t the right place, but I want to learn to play guitar and I don’t know where to start. Im 42, played sax in high school and I’m a singer, so I know music. But what’s the best way to begin to learn guitar? Take classes? Buy a jamstik? YouTube it? There seem to be so many options, hopefully someone can steer me in the right direction. Thanks!

the way i learned as a teen was that i would buy the books with the chords of easy pop songs like the beatles and whatever was popular at the time (all this is now available for free online), and i would learn the chords and play along.

first you have got to learn what the basic guitar chords are

learn all the open chords shapes first:
C
G
D
Dm
A
Am
E
Em

then practice transitioning from one to another - doesn't matter from what to what. pick two random chords in that list and just play them back and forth.

then learn the "barred chords"
F
F#m
Gm
B
Bm
Cm

and mix those into the transitions practice.

once you've got the basics of the shapes and transitions under your belt, you can look up some simple songs. Let It Be, Karma Police, Wonderwall! etc etc

if you want to progress to Dave Matthews stuff, you have to work on the rhythm and muting (strumming the strings, but having your left hand not pushing down on the strings, but just resting so that it makes more of a percussive sound). his usual chords shapes and playing style is a bit strange, but it makes more sense once you're more comfortable with all the basics, you could start dipping your toe in.. a songs like #41 is probably the best to start with.

zaphod has good advice... when I was first learning, I had a giant poster of all the "basic" chords on my wall that I'd look at if I needed it. in the age of internet, of course you can have your phone in your lap right there to refer to on chord shapes.

I'd try self education first, especially if you're a self starter and already know a little bit about music. If you realize you're not "getting" it at all from free internet resources like YouTube, then maybe look into getting some one on one lessons of some sort
