    Thanks Shawn. I have been buying and playing Guilds for some time as I had 5 when I signed up here for the forum. Something about this place though just opened my eyes to how lucky I am to be able to have Guilds. I had a serious accident that permanently damaged my Left shoulder and my left arm. Still trying to get it fixed but bottom line is that the Guilds just fit my hand so well even with the damage to the arm. To go from never thinking I was going to play again to being able to was amazing thing. After that I started "Collecting" so to speak. I'm really not a collector cause I play the heck out of all of them! If you can't enjoy them there isn't any point in having them.

    I love Guilds because they are to me some of the highest quality guitars made and when you buy one you know you are paying for the quality and not just the name on the headstock.

    I have a relatively small tribe of Guilds when compared to some others here on the forum like Grot and others, LOL! They are addicting.

    TX,
    Your Sound Cloud riffs are mezmering. You know how to draw out the best of the Guild you're playing.

    I do the same thing, Rev Shawn. Have yet to match my DV-72.

    Watched your posted video and, MAN!, if there is anyone to do Denver songs it's you! Your vibrato is a dead ringer for JD!

    Hoping there are Guilds in heaven!

    Thanks for that! I hope there are, too! A DV-72 is a gorgeous instrument - I'm envious!! :-)

    Good morning, Rev.
    Your playlist and all the other songs I've seen mentioned throughout this thread read like MY playlist for life. Add a handful of John Prine and we're in sync.

    Keep playing the great music,
    Joe

    Hey Shawn, my memory banks finally kicked in; I got that custom trc from Bill Nichols, I'm pretty sure others on this forum have bought from him. He'll custom make one for you too. Here's his link:

    Wow. Loved your rendition of "Kathy's Song" -- I was thinking: "If John Denver did Kathy's Song, that's how it would sound." (Maybe he did, IDK. I never heard him. I only heard Paul Simon's). Great song. Great job.

    I do a cover of it, and it is a bit different. I use a variation of the pick Chapin uses in "Corey's Coming." I'd like to put it up -- not that I think it compares in quality, but it shows how different a pick can make a song. Still waiting for my D40C to get back with the new frets. Hmmm... I might give it a go on my Mark II. There's a thought...

    Anyway, I wanted to answer the question I asked you, but I think that might be better in a different thread. I'd like to hear what others say.

    But, funny thing is: Kathy's Song is definitely one of the top three. In no particular order:

    If I am playing late at night, it is always "Stranger With the Melody" (Harry Chapin)

    Otherwise it will be one of three (probably)

    Kathy's Song (Paul Simon)
    Corey's Coming (Harry Chapin)
    Amazing Grace - Rising Son


    That last song is an arrangement that I sort of put together. It starts classical Amazing Grace, then transitions into the Tune of "The House to the Rising Sun" (see what I did there in the title? If I were only half so clever on the guitar, I'd be great, I tell ya...)
