I was just thinking about an old thread that was on here a while back , son .
# Hey , speaking of son , I was listening to some Jerry Reed and he is a great guitarist . I was trying to play some of those licks and a few totally baffled me .
# Son!!!!!!!!!&# 33;!!!!!!!
Nothing to do with ham radio , but , oh well .
Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference

Lots of those hot licks baffled me! Never tried any Jerry Reed stuff, though. Got whupped by Albert Lee, Scotty Moore and Roy Buchanan (all of which dates me!) Slowed down in me old age and no longer mess with the guitar. Good thing, too! Was trying just this afternoon to glue some grab rails on an HO model caboose and found my hands were just not steady enough for it to be any fun anymore to do things like that. On the guitar, my mind says "fingers here," and my fingers say "no, how about here?"
However --- I DID dig out the J-38 and hook it up, in anticipation of straight key night tomorrow night, and I got it adjusted so this old wrist won't work TOO hard maybe, and it is actually readable code! Got it in parallel with the keyer output so I can switch from keyer to hand key just by moving my arm, no switches to throw. So, sans original (1960) Stratocaster and Twin Reverb, long ago sold, I shall hopefully be on 40 meters (and maybe a dab of 80) straight keying at 10-12 wpm. (Had a Telecaster for a number of years, too -- sure wish I had that one today - I could trade it for a brand new IcowoodSu high line radio!)
Happy New Year (and safe one, too)
You got me tied to the whippin post. Cool lick Fender strat maple neck duncan pickups

Gibson tobacco burst ES-175

Both in absolutely PERFECT condition. Will trade your choice for Orion
The Gallagher and Brazilian rosewood Guild will not leave untill I have lost a serious firefight
I used to have a black Takamini cut-away acoustic, until I put it in a local shop to have some work done.
They closed the doors shortly there after and I have no idea, where my guitar is. What a bunch of scum-buckets.
I can honestly say, Imiss my guitar a lot more than my X- XYL.
73' and happy new years!
Go ahead and jump, you only bounce once. and any way, it's not the fall that kills you, it's the sudden stop!
P.S. If your check bounces, so will you.

I hope they end up with your X-XYL and mine too!
I don't know about yours, but if they ended up with my practice wife, it would serve them right!
Man, thats harsh John. I hate to hear such things happening to a good guitar. Had a fender strat with the root paint job, maple neck, rosewood fretboard, and abalone inlay with texas specials for pickups. Sold that to afford my move to 3 land
