    Al, the NH D-40 Richie Havens signature came out 2010, the video is from 2009. Origianally the D-40 Richie Havens signature came out 2003 already. Yes, you are right, looks like the TRC has something written on, so no G-41 but D-40.

    his strumming is my fave part of his playing, so easy, natural, and powerful. looks effortless. he has a cool voice too.
    the thumb thing does not look easier than if he used his forefinger to bar the frets. clearly, to him, the thumb was the more natural digit to use :)

    Ralf I think we're having semantic or translation syntax misunderstandings recently.
    I know the Havens D40 signature models were introduced in '03 in Corona, I have one.
    In fact that's it in my current avatar..and my comment was directed to Walrus' post about a black D40.
    Since it had dual 'guards and was black, the odds were very high it was a Havens signature model even if I couldn't make out the TRC clearly.
    In fact I think black was only offered on the Havens models (not the "Standard" orBLuegrass" versions), and only in Corona and Tacoma.
    I don't think it was even offered it in New Hartford, but not sure about that.

    There was a really nice segment of SNL with George Harrison and Paul Simon doing Here comes the sun and Homeward bound. Paul Simon had his F-30R.

    Sure did! Wonderful rendition.

    Funny that Walrus should have posted the video of Richie singing Fire & Rain on the Chuck the Security Guard Show. It's the same one I used to figure out what he was doing in Open-D to try and learn his cover of the song.
    Just posted the version I recorded on Soundcloud over in Members Music thread.
    Used the JF 30 12 string. Strangely enough, my thumb was able to reach the suspensions he used on most of his chords

    Richie sure was a master at covering other artists songs. One of the reasons I always loved his music so much.

    His version of Dylan's Just Like a Woman is probably my favorite cover of his.

    My arrangement of Here Comes the Sun.

    Started this years ago on my GF-60 (since sold to LTG member), and finished on my Blueridge BR-183A (I needed a smaller bodied guitar).
