    Dad's side Dutch/Scottish Mom's side "Heinz 57" as they used to say. Lots of everything. My Mom's mother wanted to see if she could join the club " Daughters of the American Revolution ".

    Since the Grim Reaper eventually comes to say Hello

    After reading this thread, I'm going to eat healthier, get a lot more exercise, and worm my way into all of your wills. I figure there are going to be a lot of guitars without a home when your time comes.

    As to the Star Trek horn O' plenty.. " It's got a maw big enough to swallow a dozen starships!

    What pick do you pick when you pick a pick for your picking?

    I need to get comfortable with finger picks. I've used thumb picks at times, by themselves, but I haven't get the handful of picks figured out. I think I would need to trim them all down to make them feel right. Getting finger picks that feel comfortable will take some time.
